Incline Walking is No Joke

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Incline walking is no joke.

You know you’re working hard when thinking about jogging instead of walking sounds like a break.

Can you tell I tackled some incline walking this morning?

I spent 20 minutes on the treadmill completing this workout:

Pin It

Keeping the speed at 4.0 while haulin’ hiney at a 12.0 incline is tough!

After my time on the treadmill, I completed an upper body workout that focused on my chest, triceps and shoulders and included the following exercises:

  • Push ups
  • Upright rows
  • Tricep dips
  • Overhead press
  • Chest press on exercise ball
  • Side shoulder raises
  • Tricep extensions
  • Front shoulder raises
  • Tricep pull downs

Great workout!


My morning meal repurposed last night’s dinner!

I chopped up the remaining slice of the artichoke and broccoli quiche and added it to a scrambled egg mixture made with two eggs, milk and fresh mozzarella cheese.

Served with a side of whole wheat toast.

I am also on day two of sipping on a new kind of coffee.

I bought Newman’s Own vanilla caramel coffee at Publix on Monday and after my first cup yesterday, I wasn’t sure it was going to be a winner. I’ve come to realize that it often takes me trying a new flavor of coffee two to three times before I really start to like it. I think this is because I have an idea of exactly how the flavor will taste in my mind, so when I actually try it, it’s never quite right.

Luckily this flavor is growing on me! I would power through it even if it wasn’t though because I’m not about to throw away $7 worth of coffee.

Time to get to work! I will be going out of town again on Friday afternoon, so I want to be sure to get a lot done in the next two days.

And I’m off!

    I love walking or cycling to work I think it really helps to add up to the target amount of exercise I aim for in a week. I have some minor joint issues so my activities have to take the pressure off them, I have an electric bike and like a brisk walk, but this sounds really doable for me, thanks for posting!
