Let's Move by @Donna_Fasano

At the beginning of the New Year, I started an exercise program called Sprint 8. It’s a 20-minute workout on the elliptical that’s done 3 times a week. The workout starts with a short warm up and then there are a series of 8 30-second sprints with 90 seconds of recovery time in between. The workout ends with a short cool down. 

I remember thinking, “Four minutes of sprinting in a 20-minute workout? I can do this.” But I have to admit, at the end of those 20 minutes, I am wiped out! However, I have completed over a month of workouts, and I feel good and I’ve also lost a few pounds. The science behind how and why this workout works is solid, so I hope I can keep it up. You can find out more about the Sprint 8 workout by clicking here.

Do you follow any kind of exercise plan? So you tend to stick with the same sort of exercise or do you switch things up? Are you naturally motivated? Or are you more like me… someone who has to really psych herself up to get moving?

As teens, Josie and Alex met under golden sunshine, frolicked in the surf and sand, and fell head over toes in love. But their one glorious summer ended in ruin and Josie fled Ocean City with a broken heart.

Now Josie’s grandmother is ill and needs help with the family business, a thriving harbor-side diner called Joe’s Place. So after more than a dozen years, Josie returns to her hometown only to discover she has a 180 pound problem—Alex is the Kitchen Commander at Joe’s Place. Surely, Josie can work with Alex to keep the diner going until her grandmother is back on her feet. However, when Alex’s little girl starts scheming, not a single heart will be safe from the little matchmaker.

This book contains bonus recipes from Joe’s Place! Download today for 99¢ at the Kindle Store.

  1. Usually, I do HIIT running routines. However, I may try the Sprint 8 workout. It sounds like it would be a fun.

    1. The 20 minutes seems to go by in a flash, that for sure. Thanks for stopping by, Merri!

  2. I've taken up jump roping for my aerobic spurts.

  3. I walk daily in the hills around my house for 45 minutes to an hour. I also ride a stationary bike several days a week. I like to mix in standing leg workouts too, but I'm not as faithful as I should be.

  4. Donna, your dedication is impressive. My exercise of choice is walking outdoors. I can do this most days if I watch the radar carefully. :)

  5. Donna, good for you. I get exercise several times a week playing tennis, but I also throw in a few walks and aerobics.
