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!
30 Minute Treadmill Interval Workout
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!
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.
All mixed up!
Now it’s time to take Miss Sadie off for her morning walk before heading into work.
I’ll see ya after lunch!
