30 Minute Treadmill Interval Workout

Hooray for no early shift today!!!

It felt so good to go to the gym early to work out rather than to work. I miss my early morning workouts! They set my day in motion and give me a great burst of energy first thing in the morning. Yes, sometimes it can totally suck to work out before the sun comes up, but on the whole, working out first thing in the morning is where it’s at for this girl!

When Ryan and I arrived at the gym, I hopped on the treadmill and decided to complete a run/walk interval workout.

I wasn’t feeling all that motivated to push myself when I started this workout, so I began with simple run/walk intervals, but as I began to wake up, I kicked it up a notch and pushed myself at the end. The last two intervals had me breathing heavy!

I rounded things out with my 8 minute ab workout and some stretching.


Breakfast this morning filled me right up!

Cottage Cheese Breakfast Bowl

I began with a base of one cup of cottage cheese (I love Friendship 1 percent) and topped it with a sliced frozen banana, slightly thawed frozen blueberries and raspberries, raw oats and chia seeds.

Now it’s time to take Miss Sadie off for her morning walk before heading into work.

I’ll see ya after lunch!

    Yay for no early shift! That reminds me – did you see the video I posted on your Facebook page about getting up early/alarm clocks by comic Gary Gulman? I only ask bc my Facebook’s been weird so I’m not sure it actually posted the link, but anyways it’s hilarious!

    Excellent workout! Random Question: Do you eat before you workout in the morning?? Is it counterproductive not to?? If I go to the gym, I usually eat a small handful of peanuts (they’re the only thing I’ve found that keeps my stomach from growling halfway through the workout) but if I’m running from home, I just get up and go. Is that a bad idea??

    Hi Julie!
    I love your blog and the wonderful workouts that you post! I was wondering what program you custom make them on that makes them fun and colorful before you post them? Thanks!

    Your breakfast looks like the perfect way to fill up but stay cool! I am getting a little bored with smoothies so I’ll have to give this a try!
