I just love starting out the day with a good, sweaty cardio session. It puts a little extra pep in my step, and keeps my endorphins a-flowin’.
This morning’s sweaty cardio session came in the form of yesterday’s Pyramid Treadmill Workout. I did the modified, 35-minute running version, which has no recovery times, and covers just around 3.5 miles. It is definitely a serious butt-kicker!
Actually, even though I have the DVD, I often just flip on my Exercise TV channel and watch it off of there. There are so many options on that channel, and I love having it right at my fingertips with the push of a button (I also just noticed a 10lb. Slimdown Xtreme series today – definitely going to have to check that one out!).
The other night, when our friends Joe and Kate were over, we were actually talking about switching from our cable provider (Time Warner) to Direct TV to save money, but when I found out there was no Exercise TV channel, it was pretty much a deal breaker. (Hence, the reason I called and saved us some extra moola the other day). If you do have this channel at your disposal, and you’re looking for some new or different workout ideas, I’d definitely recommend checking it out.
(Exercise TV did not ask me/pay me to write any of this…I just like to share what I love with all of you!)
Post-workout, it was time for some foooood.
Umm, ok. Peaches are seriously amazing right now, aren’t they?!? So ripe and juicy! I sliced one up this morning and gave it a thorough sprinkle of cinnamon.
I also toasted up a slice of whole wheat bread and topped it with a pumpkin-peanut butter combo, and more peaches. The pumpkin-peanut butter combo is awesome; depending on what else you add, you don’t really end up tasting the pumpkin, but it makes it seem like you’re getting double the peanut butter. Lotsa volume…which is always great in my book!
Even though it is, technically, Coffee Friday, I still enjoyed a mug at home this morning. We’ll see whether or not I need to pick one up while I’m out later today.
Happy Friday, everyone!
