HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training

This is the BEST method for fat loss. By getting your heart rate to jump up and down very quickly, it leads to more fat burning. You can't skip HIIT, that's the bottom line. But I know I can't commit to 15 minutes of sprints 3x a week. So instead, I do a quick 10-15 minute circuit, depending on how much time I have!

Here's what you do:

1. Pick 5 of the exercises from the video (the full list is at the bottom of the page).

2. Set a timer for 30 seconds (I recommend downloading an interval timer so you don't have to reset your clock after every exercise).

3. Do each exercise for 30 seconds and rest for 30 seconds after. Do 2 or 3 rounds!

You can get so creative with this as well. Yesterday I did 5 burpees after each exercise for 15 seconds of my 30 second rest. I only picked 4 of the exercises and did 3 rounds (for a total of 12 minutes), but the extra burpees and less rest time were an added challenge. And when I was done, I had done 9 minutes of work (because the burpees ate up 1/2 of my rest time) and 60 additional burpees to my exercises! You could add 2 push ups during your rest to help work on your upper body strength. Set your interval for 40:20 instead of 30:30.The variations are endless!

But these exercises can be the frame work for your HIIT. This is the kind of HIIT I like, the kind I can plan to do and actually stick to. I get my heart rate up, and feel great after.

Try this out and let me know what you create :)

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
