I began my workout with 20 minutes on the elliptical before hopping off and tackling a total body circuit workout that looked like this:
I really, really liked this workout. I jumped from exercise to exercise with minimal rest which made the circuit fly by and had me sweatin’!
Here are a few links to demos of some of the exercises:
- Step Ups with Bicep Curl
- Plank Glute Kickback
- Bent Over Dumbbell Row
- Chest Press on Exercise Ball
Breakfast this morning came in the form of Joelle’s Paleo oatmeal.
Once again I added an extra egg white to the recipe and used a whole banana.
I also used chia seeds instead of flax seeds, which changed the texture a bit, and not necessarily for the better. I ran out of ground flaxseeds yesterday, so I subbed the chia seeds this morning and they were only okay. I definitely prefer the flaxseeds.
As if those changes to her recipe weren’t enough, I also added some steel cut oats which increased the cooking time, but tasted great. I loved the addition!
And you can’t forget that morning cup o’ coffee!
Question of the Morning
- What is the best thing you’ve had for breakfast so far this month?
My answer is an easy one: Malasadas!!! We got them one morning when we were in Oahu and I was in heaven.
