Good morning and Happy Hump Day! First things first, I want to wish my friend A a very Happy Birthday! I look forward to seeing her tonight at her birthday dinner. Here we are at Cinco De Mayo a couple of years ago:
So, I can tell you that hair color and iPads don’t mix. Check out what happened yesterday:
I guess I touched my hair while the stylist was adding the color and then touched the iPad cover. Thankfully none got on the actual iPad. Oops. I am heading to the Apple Store Friday for an iPhone5 workshop, so I will be buying a new cover then.
After getting my hair colored, I came home and went straight to my workout. First up was two sets of this arm workout:
Next up was a 12 minute H.I.I.T. elliptical workout:
Updated 2-17-2013: Depending on the machine you are on, change the intervals up. Maybe do 45 / 45 or 60 / 30. Some machines take longer than others to adjust. My machine increases intensity/difficulty immediately, incline in 5-10 seconds, and speed is solely up to me. You could also use a treadmill, arc trainer, or be running/walking outdoors. So many options for high intensity interval training!
By the time I finished, I was dripping with sweat. For the high intensity intervals, I increased the incline and resistance and then went all out of 30 seconds. This could easily be adapted for a treadmill, arc trainer, etc.

Enjoy your day!
