I am so proud of both of you for doing HIIT. It is just so hard that it makes me not want to exercise ever again. Lol. I opt for the easier stuff. Not as efficient but I know I am a wimp when it comes to hard exercises. Keep up the good work!

I know I typed a response to this thread, but I must not have got it finished and posted, because I just noticed that it isn't here. Darn technology - it should be able to finish what I start!

Anyways, it is nice to meet you Barbara!

I too would like to know what a fit board is.
We have hobbies in common; what kinds of books do you like to read? What are you reading right now?

I am midway through a three month long (once a week) HIIT class. It is the first time I have done a solid interval training class, and IT IS HARD! Good for you for using it at home. It is sure an effective way to exercise!

I bet it is a lot of fun being a lunch lady! I worked in an elementary school for 20 plus years and loved it! Kids keep us young!

Hi Barbara, Nice to meet you!
Elementary age kids are so delightful, aren't they? Easy to understand why you love your job!
I too would like to know what a fit board is.
I have traded my BooTy class for a HIIT class. That stuff is killer hard!! I downloaded a HIIT Timer app, but so far a once-a-week class has been enough for me. I am still doing three other classes per week, but nothing to match the intensity. Of the HIIT...
What are you reading? I belong to the Sparkgroup "a Book Club" and we are reading Dreamers of the Day. It is quite an enjoyable read!

Thanks, Barbara for doing this. It is so nice to get to know you. That is exciting you love being a lunch lady. All those little people to enjoy. I love your quote that laughing burns calories.
