30 Minute Circuit Workout

I stayed up a little bit past my usual super early bedtime to watch the second presidential debate last night but surprisingly awoke feeling ready to go this morning! Hey, I’ll take it!

30 Minute Circuit Workout

I took advantage of my odd energy at the gym this morning. After completing 20 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical, I headed into the weight room ready to tackle a kick-butt circuit workout.

I’m not sure whether I was moving slow or what (I admittedly take a long time whenever I do single leg deadlifts), but this seemingly short workout took me a solid 30 minutes to complete. Even though it took half an hour, the time I spent completing the various exercises passed pretty quickly, and I found myself at home eating breakfast before I knew it.


I made myself a hot bowl of pumpkin banana oatmeal, though I omitted the brown sugar and used steel cut oats instead of old fashioned oatmeal.

I also added extra pumpkin, vanilla protein powder and ground flaxseeds. This bowl is sitting in my stomach like a rock right now. Filling!

    You are not along with single leg dealifts. They take me a long time to complete…I think its the balance factor lol

    Have a great day:)

    Yesterday you said that Sadie gave you the guilt look, wanting exercise.
    Stella always roams into the kitchen when I am making second (or third!) breakfast and looks at me with a, “You’re really in here AGAIN?!” face. Haha

    How do you come up with your circuit workouts? Or any workouts? I am always worried I will work the wrong muscles or work one muscle too much. Any tips? =)

    I just pinned that workout so I don’t forget to try it! I’ve been obsessed with circuit work and any type of quick, effective workouts lately. When it’s cold outside I just want to get it done! Which is also why I decided to do a quick (but super-hard) plank workout during the presidential debate last night! It was the perfect distraction. 🙂
