HIIT and low carb day 1

Ouch. I ran 60 seconds at 8mph 8 times with a 60 second break in between. Halfway through I has to take a 3 minute break. The remaining 4 rubs had me feeling like i would vomit each time i finished. I had planned to go to a weight class tmw morning but I can tell I'm going to be feeling it, as my hips are already so sore.

Food- breakfast had an Atkins shake, and almonds. Lunch was handmade chicken salad. I couldnt figure out te exact carbs br I can't imagine it's much. More almonds, and then chicken Parm with spaghetti squash for dinner. The chicken wasn't breaded, so the carbiest thing was the tomato sauce. Still not bad. Definitely ended the day under 75, but possibly under 50. Weight was 151.2, which is terribly depressing, but that's why I'm doing this.

Tmw have plans to go on a walk after work. Have chicken salad and leftover dinner for meals.

Edit: Miranda- high intensity interval training. You can do it on any machine... But the goal is to go 100% followed by a recovery. Studies show that 8 minutes of high intensity cardio is more effective than an hour of moderate intensity because your heart rate stays up, and you breathe a lot more air for the next 24 hours
