Functional Training Whiteboard Workout

Hello and happy last day of April!

Things started to return to normal around here yesterday after our incredible vacation, but I am still feeling a little tired. We packed so much into our trip that we never slept in even one time and there were a few days in there when we got 4 –5 hours of sleep a night due to late nights and early morning travel plans. Since I don’t have to be into work until 11 a.m. today, I opted to sleep in and work out at 7:30 a.m. which was glorious.

I didn’t work out once on vacation and I was definitely feeling the burn today! Yeesh.

I began my time at the gym with 20 minutes on the elliptical to ease into things. Then the whiteboard caught my eye and I decided to complete a couple of rounds of the functional training workout which totally kicked my butt.

For those of you always on the lookout for at home workout options, the above workout can be done without any equipment and is sure to make you sweat! Let’s just say that knocking out burpees after more than a week away from the gym was a humbling experience.


After my workout, I headed home and made myself a quick breakfast to eat while typing up this blog post.

I prepared a batch of scrambled eggs with shredded mozzarella cheese, spinach and chicken sausage. Plus an apple on the side!

If sausage is involved in a meal, you can bet Sadie will be close by.


I missed that little lady so much! She got lots of cuddles and kisses yesterday.

Off to shower before heading out the door. My shift is a shorter one today (only a half-day), so I’ll be sure to pop back in before dinner.

Question of the Morning

  • What is your favorite memory from April this year?

    Hi Julie! After following your blogs for a while I’ve been inspired to workout in the mornings before school, buut the only dilemma I have is if I should eat a snack before I workout or what. Do you eat before working out? If you do, what does your food consist of?

    This looks like a great workout… one I would enjoy! Okay, one I would hate, but in a good way. 🙂 This is terrible, but I can’t think of good memory for April. It was a REALLY stressful month! I guess it would have to be Easter Service and the one Saturday I got to go to the beach. I hope May is better!!
