Well, this morning I realized that a kick-butt workout can be achieved on the ellitpical!
After seeing Gabriela post this workout on her blog, I figured an interval workout on the ellitpical was worth a shot. I printed out her workout, but changed it up a bit and ended up completing the following 50-minute routine:
I must say that I’ve never used the elliptical at an incline above 13. Level 18 is no joke! I actually felt like I was on the stair master. I felt so slow, but plugged away!
As you can see above, the hardest part of the workout occurs during the first 30 minutes. I used the last 20 minutes to cool down and read the latest issue of Shape magazine.
After my workout, I came home and took Sadie on a quick walk before digging into a delicious breakfast.
In the mix:
- 1 c. 2% Chobani Greek yogurt
- 3/4 c. Gerber Graduates sweet potatopuffs
- Chia seeds
You better believe I incorporated baby cereal into the mix!
Since I clearly cannot be trusted around boxed cereal, I typically avoid buying it. These little puffs are perfect because they satisfy my craving for cereal and for some reason I am much better about exercising portion control around them. Maybe because there are only six servings in a container and I want them to last a while?
Whatever it is, I’m sold. They’re delicious! I was actually a little apprehensive about the sweet potato flavor, but the flavor is light and has the perfect amount of sweetness.
…Fast forward through the first half of my day at work…
On my plate:
- Turkey sandwich with roasted red pepper hummus and spinach
- Curried cauliflower
- Carrot stick
Can you believe that the above portion of cauliflower is actually an entire head of cauliflower? Crazy, huh? I swear the oven must be a shrinking machine or something.
Let’s move on to some fun stuff…
