Starting Saturday the Sweaty Way

Today started out on a super-sweaty note with a great cardio workout at the gym.

I took today’s workout up to a secluded loft at our gym that personal trainers typically use to train their clients and take them through plyometric and boot camp-style workouts.

Today the loft was deserted so I took advantage of the private space and completed two rounds of Jessica’s At Home Cardio Blast workout.

I jotted down Jessica’s workout back in April and have kept it in my little gym bag ever since so I always have it on hand just in case I feel inspired to put myself through a heart-pumpin’ workout.


The elliptical also got some attention during my morning workout, as I warmed up with 15 minutes on the elliptical and finished my workout with 10 minutes on machine.

Post workout, Ryan and I took Sadie on a 2 mile walk around the lake near our apartment.

Now it’s time for a BIG breakfast! I ate a quesadilla (string cheese microwaved on a whole wheat tortilla) before the gym, but my tummy wants mo’ food!

After breakfast, I have plans to lay by the pool with my friend Merri before heading back to our apartment to tackle wedding invitations and run some errands with Ryan.

See ya in a bit!

    Wow, that sounds like an intense workout!! My new fitness goal is to add a day or two of strength training each week (I am such a cardio/running girl–but that wasn’t always the case!), and this seems like an awesome workout to do. Thank you, Julie and Jessica!

    I did that workout last night and oh man was my heart pumping! I wanted to do some elliptical afterwards but I was tiiiiired. Thanks for sharing it though, it’s definitely a good quick TOUGH workout to do on my off days from running 🙂
