I am so excited to share this workout with you guys today.
Before heading to the gym this morning, I sat at the kitchen counter and jotted down a bunch of different exercises with the goal of creating a super-fast circuit workout that would kick my butt and leave me dripping in sweat in 25 minutes or less.
I present to you the Cant Stop, Won’t Stop Circuit Workout:
Why “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop?”
- Can’t Stop: It was very fast paced so I felt like I could never stop and had to keep moving so I could stay on point
- Won’t Stop: It made me dig deep because it was so challenging so I had to really commit and tell myself “I won’t stop” a few times
The good news? I was technically only kickin’ my butt for 20 minutes of active exercises, though the workout took me about 25 minutes to complete. I warmed on the elliptical before diving into this bad boy which helped my muscles feel ready to go when I started in with the first 30 seconds of burpees. I was so sweaty by the end of this workout!
After my workout, I looked over at Ryan to see if he was ready to head home. Please check out my crazy husband:
He takes box jumps to a whole new level.
Allow me to show you my box jumps:
My bravery is astounding.
Breakfast this morning was a new one for me.
I tried Joelle’s Paleo oatmeal that I pinned on Pinterest a few weeks ago. No, I’m not going Paleo, but I’ve seen blogger after blogger rave about this “oatless oatmeal,” and I’m always game for trying a new recipe. I gave it a go this morning and am definitely a fan. (I used an extra egg white and a whole banana in my version.)
I’m just about the least picky eater in all the land, so I could see people who are easily skeeved out by strange textures not enjoying this dish, but I loved it. I had Ryan try a bite and he thought it was good, too, though he happily chowed down on his beloved McDonald’s hot cakes that we picked up on the way home from the gym.
I ordered my usual iced coffee to sip along with my hot breakfast and enjoyed it with a cup of key lime Greek yogurt.
Yum! It instantly made me wish I would’ve used the yogurt to make my key lime pie protein smoothie. Maybe I’ll make one after our morning walk with Sadie?
Off to exercise that crazy ball of love!
