15 or 30 Minute Incline Walking Workout

2012 Halloween candy trends according to the informal Fagan family candy poll:

  • Most popular candy: KitKats, Peanut M&Ms, Twix
  • Least popular candy: Baby Ruth, 3 Musketeers

We had a lot of trick-or-treaters last night and I was quite thankful that Ryan bought another two bags of candy on his way home from work yesterday or we would’ve run out. We have some leftover candy, but our leftovers are limited to 3 Musketeers, Baby Ruth, Milk Duds and the occasional mini Snickers. All my favorites are gone!


Today’s workout was a 50 minute cardio hodgepodge, followed by some planks that made my abs burn!

My 50 minutes of cardio was split between three different cardio machines:

  • 10 minutes stair master
  • 15 minutes treadmill incline walking 
  • 10 minutes stair master
  • 15 minutes elliptical

Hopping on and off various machines really helps me fight cardio boredom!

My time on the treadmill was spent completing a 15 minute incline walking workout that could easily be repeated for a 30-minute walking workout on days when a longer workout is more appealing.

I covered one mile during my 15-minute workout and the fast pace coupled with the inclines really had me haulin’ hiney.


Breakfast this morning started with a banana…


And ended with scrambled eggs that I made with a splash of milk, shredded cheese, onion and yellow bell pepper.

The yellow pepper in my eggs kind of looks like pineapple to me. You know I love the whole sweet and salty combination thing, but I’m not so sure about pineapple scrambled eggs. Ick.

Time to work! I’m heading out to deliver Meals on Wheels lunches at 10:30 a.m. and am hoping to wrap a freelance article before then. Catch you after lunch!

    This was my first Halloween as a person providing the candy, and I think I got a little too excited and waaaay overestimated the amount of people that would visit the house. We have a TON of leftovers…my favorites (mini snickers and reese’s) included! Danger zone!!

    VEry cool that you reached 1,000!

    I don’t realyl like the ones you don’t like either. We should be friends! 😉

    We didn’t have any trickortreaters since we live in condos and there are hardly any kids.

    I envy your trick or treat traffic! I have lived in a college town and then the country for 5 years with no trick or treaters. We just moved to a nice family suburb and I was anticipating tons of kids, but we only had 5. I was so sad! Now I have a bowl full of candy in my house….ugh!

    I am the queen of cardio boredom! I look like I have really bad ADD whenever I’m in the gym because unless I’m running I’m hopping on and off all the equipment 🙂

    Really? 3 Musketeers are my favorite! Maybe because they seem the least sinful. I like to switch up the cardio machines too or else I also get totally bored! There’s only so much elliptical or treadmill I can take!

    I would be pretty stoked with having leftover Milk Duds. Those are one of my favourites! But a lack of KitKat bars would mean trouble.


  7. says

    3 Musketeers are my favorite! I wouldn’t mind having a lot of those leftover 😉 I definitely thought the yellow peppers in your eggs were pineapple at first too haha!

    This. kicked. my. butt!!! It was my first time trying an inclined walking routine, and, holy moly, I don’t think I have ever sweat so much on the treadmill before. Definitely adding these to my workouts more often.
    Thanks for posting 🙂

    Nice workout. With limited time, I really like fast workouts that can be done from home in under 30 minutes. Will def. give this one a shot. Thanks for sharing!
