Fat Burning Treadmill Workout





People who have success with improving their health make little changes over time to become healthier, and even lose weight. Maybe they stop drinking soda for a day, then a week and eventually even a month. You can’t expect to change all your bad habits at once. In fact, you should always replace bad habits with a positive one. So if soda is your kryptonite, find something to replace it with; maybe a fruit infused water, low calorie non-carbonated drink, or even an herbal tea. Then as you gradually progress, you will find yourself not needing the extra sweetness and chances are you will move onto water.

As far as exercising goes, you don’t need to spend hours working every single muscle in your body. Even just getting a good sweat going and hitting your target heart rate can be very beneficial to fat loss. Here is a 22 minute workout that will really get you pumped and ready for the day. It is a gradual hill climb and descent where you will do the fastest speed for only one minute, while spending two on the others. I do this multiple times a week, especially when I am crunched for time. If you are new to running on a treadmill, start out at less than a 6.0 speed. Maybe try a fast walk at 4.0 and then see how you feel after a few minutes.

Minutes ~ Speed

1-3 ~ 6.0

3-5 ~ 6.5

5-7 ~ 7.0

7-9 ~ 7.5

9-11 ~ 8.0

11-12 ~ 8.5

12-14 ~ 8.0

14-16 ~ 7.5

16-18 ~ 7.0

18-20 ~ 6.5

20-22 ~ 6.0

My name is Lisa but some people call me Veggie Lisa. I am a mom of four kids who loves to dance, cook, exercise, shop, decorate, and enjoy all the beautiful things the state of Utah has to offer. I have had a very long journey to get to the place that I am now, strong and confident but most of all happy. At one point in my life I weighed 200 pounds. It took 11 long years and 4 babies later to finally learn how to nourish my body properly and be comfortable in my own skin. Being a life long vegetarian, I have a passion for vegetables and love teaching my kids how delicious they can be. Most people find veggies very, very, very boring. And gross. But not me! I love all things green and the more colorful my plate is, the happier I am. Vegetables don’t have to be boring! My motto is eat good, feel good, look good. When we eat good food and treat our bodies with respect, the rest falls into place.
