In November I did a one week exercise and nutrition challenge called Thin for Thanksgiving. It was fun and having accountability is always a good motivator. I also had great results so when my friend Astrid announced she was holding another free week long challenge called The Paddy Melt, I jumped on board. One of my cousins is also doing the challenge, so that's been fun. Monday and Tuesday were hectic, so I didn't make it out to run or to the gym, so it was actually perfect timing. I did these at home HIIT and Tabata workouts at home. They are really great fat burners, and although they're not my favorite (I'd rather hit the trails) I know they're a good addition to an overall strong body.
