— My 18 year old brother, when i was freaking out about my recovery weight gain. (via thephilyptian)
At the moment when I go on the treadmill at the gym I walk for 2 minutes at 6km/h, I jog for 2 mins at 9 km/h and run for 1 minute at 13 km/h. I repeat this 6 times until I’ve been on the treadmill for half an hour, then I go do something else.
My question is - is this considered HIIT? should I be doing shorter intervals to make it more effective or walk less/run more?
Heyya! I followed the new system, which in Australia is called ProPoints and I think in America it may be called Points Plus. I don’t really know much about the old system but I know ProPoints takes into account protein, carbohydrates, fats and fibre and so that’s why some of the points values differ from the old system. Through the majority of my weight loss I was eating 29 points worth of food a day and occasionally using some (or all) of my 49 weekly points, and I was still losing on average 0.5-1kg a week :) x
5. If you were drunk would the person you like take care of you?

such good questions though :)
omg so I have paid for 3 introductory personal training sessions at my gym right, and yesterday I got a call from the male personal trainer who has been assigned to me. Not only is he pretty attractive, but was only in the year above me at school and is kind of known among my friend group and has a SMOKING hot girlfriend. Anyyywayyy during the phone call he said he would be taking measurements/discussing diet so I have to wear a sports bra so he can do a skin fold test and also to keep a diary of my food intake so he can look at that and urghh it’s just going to be so awkward cos I have so much saggy skin, so what’s the point of a skin fold test anyway!
The first session was supposed to be this morning but last night I had a sleepover with my girlfriends and ate a disgusting amount of popcorn, lollies and m&m’s and woke up SO bloated, so I texted him saying I had been called in to work and couldn’t make it hehe
