Trying new things

So I am force feeding myself some new things.  Yes, I said force feeding!  There are certain foods I don’t like but I know are really good for me so I want to try to add them to my diet.  Avocado is one of those items.  I am a texture person.  I have purchased two avocados and placed them in a paper bag to ripen and made them into guacamole to snack on.  I can’t eat cilantro so I skipped adding that and added some spices I do like to try to convince my taste buds we like it.  I have to say it fills me up and isn’t that bad.  I definitely think avocados and I are going to be friends sooner than later!

I stumbled upon a treadmill routine and tried it out the other day.  Some days are harder than others to hop on the treadmill and kill it.  So to get around that trying something new is a must!  I tried this routine and first round was a bit too easy for me so I upped incline and speed to fit my capabilities.  The routine is a 10 minute routine that you can repeat as many times as you want.  I blew through 30 minutes and it felt so quick.  So here try this and if it’s not challenging you don’t quit.  Up your incline and speed to challenge your abilities!

Speed         Incline          Duration

3mph          10%                1min   Repeat 3 more times
