So apparently I’m all about scouring some awesome blogs for workout ideas this week? Yesterday, I incorporated Tina’s upper body workout (which has my arms way more sore than I had anticipated!) and today, I tried out a new workout from Brittany.
I was skimming through and found a workout of Brittany’s called the 10-10-10 Quick Interval Workout. I honestly didn’t know what I was in the mood to do today, but as soon as I saw this, it totally appealed to me. It was pretty fun to switch back and forth between the treadmill sprints and the weight exercises, and I loved that it was all done in less than 30 minutes.
I followed up that interval workout with a few moves to focus on the ‘ol abs:
- 20 roll ups with 5lb. dumbbell
- 25 floor leg lifts
- 50 bicycle crunches
- 50 forearm side plank hip raises (25 per side)
- 90 second plank (<—killerrrrr!!)
Post-workout, I made myself a protein shake made with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 scoop vanilla SunWarrior protein powder, 2 tsp chia seeds, and a few drops of cocoa bean liquid stevia.
It was tasty but I will admit – drinking chia seeds is definitely an acquired taste. Especially if you’re a texture person (aka, my husband).
A couple hours later, the tummy was ready to be fed again.
Ya know, sometimes breakfast is just too good to only be enjoyed in the morning…am I right?
This morning, I was actually really cravings cereal AND eggs, but cereal ended up winning me over. Luckily, since I knew I’d be home this afternoon, I decided to just postpone my eggs until lunchtime.
I put together an incredibly savory and delicious egg and cheese sandwich, made with 1/2 cup Egg Beaters (in my microwave egg cooker), provolone cheese, turkey bacon, fresh spinach, and a smear of hummus on a toasted whole wheat English muffin.
On the side, I added some carrot sticks and grape tomatoes for munching.
A little later this afternoon I have a meeting about work, which should hopefully give me a better idea of what I’ll be looking at for a schedule. I have no idea what to expect, but I guess I’ll find out soon enough!
Oh yeah, and I still need to get my act together and finish those darn cupcakes.
