Aqua HIIT

Good morning and Happy Friday! This was a long week over here, so I am happy to have the weekend in sight.

(Dinner last night: Asian glazed chicken with roasted broccoli and brown rice.)

Yesterday morning my in-laws were sleeping in with Ina, so I decided to take advantage of it and made the last minute decision to try out a new-to-me water class at my gym.

The class’s official name was “Aquabata Blast,” but after attending a class, I think it should be called Aqua HIIT.

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is short(isn) bursts of movement designed to get your heart rate up fast, with breaks in between.  We did things like jumps or kicks in the water, and I have to say, it worked.  I think yesterday was the highest my heart rate has been since I have been pregnant.

My favorite part was moving into the lazy river and doing resistance work.  Who knew some crazy looking movements against water could make someone’s arms so sore?

Other things to be excited about:

- Our sink is fixed! Thanks to my friend Courtney who recommended a very nice and affordable plumber.

- I upgraded to an iPhone 6 yesterday! Dan’s needed a new phone, so he inherited my old 5, which he seems to be happy with.

- Pending Dan passing his test today (prayers would be appreciated) he is for sure starting day shift on Monday. Yay!

I hope you have an awesome weekend!
