Well wouldn’t you know.
As soon as Jay and I pulled into the parking lot of the softball fields last night, the skies opened up…
Since the storm was supposed to be a fast mover, we all waited it out in our cars.
But then the thunder and lightning got crazy!
So the game was cancelled and we headed home. I’m not going to lie…I wasn’t too disappointed about not playing. I guess I was feeling a bit lazy yesterday evening.
I guess it’s a good thing the laziness was happenin’ last night, rather than this morning though, right? I hit up my usual BodyPump class, which was preceded by 15 minutes of intervals on the elliptical.
I’ve had a few people ask lately what exactly my elliptical intervals look like…honestly, I never really paid attention until today (since it’s a built in program), so here’s me trying to break it down for ya…
Continue repeating minutes 0-8, alternating stride every 4 mins. I really like alternating my stride forward and backward because it each way works different muscles and feels like a more complete workout.
Once I got home, I decided to get the shower thing out of the way for the day, even though I’ll probably be sweating my face off in no time. Once that was taken care of, it was time to dig into breakfast, which was already waiting for me in the fridge.
Overnight OIAJ! It’s been way too long my friends…too long. I was excited. Can you tell?
In today’s OOIAJ:
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup vanilla almond milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1/2 scoop vanilla Whey protein powder
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- granola (added this morning after a big ‘ol stir of the oats)
It was incredible.
And so was the glass of iced coffee that my wonderful hubby left for me this morning, since there wasn’t enough for both of us…
But I mean, really. It’s the least he could have done…I just sent him into work with a dozen cupcakes this morning.
I’m determined to make a bigger dent in my to-do list today than I have the past two days…I guess I’m already ahead of the game though by having my shower taken care of.
Time to get crack-a-lackin’!
Question for the Morning:
Do you prefer cardio workouts that are more steady-state or full of intervals and/or other changes in speed/incline/etc.?
