Metabolic Workout– Tabata (20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest)
**Perform push-ups for 20 sec, rest 10 sec, then do Mtn. Climbers for 20 sec, rest 10 sec, then Burpees for 20 sec, rest 10 sec, then Situps for 20 sec, rest 10…. Repeat the entire thing for a total of 4 times. It should equal 8 minutes.
I also recommend you keep pen and paper nearby so that after each exercise, you can write down how many you did. Compare it to your first week and see which ones you’ve improved on… Hopefully all of them!**

Side Planks x 30 sec. each side
am really sad that I couldnt work out today due to my knee….felt great doing this challenge, but am going to see it to the end. Got a knee brace and have iced my knee along with proping it up. Today I was good eating, no bread, 3 eggs in a.m., salad at lunch had peanuts to snack on brought an apple only to cut into it and see it was bad, and tonight I ended with brussel sprouts for dinner with some mushrooms bacon and a little cheese mixed in (cooked in olive oil) tasted great. Hoping to make it back to the gym tomorrow to do day 9 otherwise I will go and work my arms and some abs to compensate for these days. Cant wait to get back on my leg and continue on feel great and actually feel like my clothes are getting bigger on me.
This workout felt 100% better than last week and all of my numbers increased significantly.
I started my challenge about a week later so this was yesterdays to me and I am so happy to see that my numbers improved from last week!! Thank you Julia for doing this and giving us the opportunity to become healthier and stronger!
