Workouts in a Busy World

Most people today are busy.  I’d almost say that EVERYONE thinks they’re busy.  It appears that weightlifting is a way to boost the aging-gal metabolism and physique.  Secondly, HIIT (high intensity interval training) is the most efficient way to burn calories and boost metabolism throughout the day.  There must be a way to combine these both.  I love lifting weights, HIIT, and pilates and yoga.  Now how do I find a program that does it all?  I’ve done a lot of the Beachbody videos and have loved them!  But it gets monotonous doing those for 90 days over and over again.  I have a gym pass (mainly for the classes), pilates pass, and access to amazing hikes and ocean.  I feel pretty lucky.  So what’s my excuse?  Well, I already wakeup every morning around 6:15a (sometimes 5:45a depending on when I need to be at work).  Most days I work til at least 5p, but oftentimes to 7p or even all night.  With this schedule, morning workouts appear to be the best method for uninterrupted and obligated workout time.
