Today’s workout was quite a sweaty one! I wasn’t doing anything particularly crazy, but there’s something about interval training that leaves me looking like a hot mess.
I began my workout with 15 minutes on the stair master reading the latest issue of Better Homes and Gardens which left me feeling like my own apartment looks like an absolute dump heap. I can’t wait for the day when Ryan and I have our own home to decorate and organize! (Maybe in North Carolina!? We just need to convince our families to move.)
After my time on the stair master, I hopped on the treadmill to complete this interval workout:
|0 – 5||10.0||4.0|
|5 – 20||2.0||Alternate 4.5 for one minute, followed by 8.0 for one minute|
|20 – 25||10.0||4.0|
Since I typically receive questions about how many miles I cover in my random treadmill workouts, here are my stats:
Covering slightly more than two miles when I only ran for seven of the 25 minutes isn’t too shabby if you ask me!
I rounded out my workout for the day with 10 minutes on the elliptical and a short walk with Miss Sadie.
Breakfast this morning was easy peasy thanks to some legwork last night.
Before going to bed I combined the following:
- 1/2 c. old fashioned oatmeal
- 1 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 c. almond milk
- 1/2 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp. peanut butter
Chocolate peanut butter overnight oats, baby!
I simply grabbed my prepped overnight oats from the fridge, added a spoonful of chocolate PB2 to the mix and chowed down this morning while reading blog emails (thank you so much to Laura, Jane, Andrea and Kristen for your amazing email guides for my trip to Europe!) and typing up this post.
I’m beginning to wonder if I ever blog when I’m not eating…
