I’m really looking forward to this weekend. Lots of fun stuff on the agenda!
Today started like any other Friday in our household… with a sweaty workout.
Ryan and I headed to the gym an initially hopped on side-by-side ellipticals, but when Ryan’s machine started clicking and making funky noises, we hopped off and decided to do 20 minutes of incline walking on the treadmill instead.
I honestly feel like walking on an incline can be harder than running at times. Phew.
Treadmill time was followed by an upper-body workout that included the following exercises:
- Superset One: Lat pull downs + Upright rows
- Superset Two: Incline bicep curls + Overhead press
- Superset Three: Tricep dips + Chest press
- Tricep pull downs
- Bicep curls (3 minutes non-stop, inspired by BodyPump)
- Mac raises (Also inspired by BodyPump)
- Ab work on the exercise ball
My arms feel like Jello now!
You know the drill…
Clearly I’m still on my egg sandwich kick. Mmm.
Awesome Whole Grain Month Giveaway
Two weeks ago I first blogged about Whole Grain Month which is going on right now. Whole grains are not only nutritious, but they’re delicious to boot.
Two of my favorite whole grain recipes include:
This post is part two of my partnership with Quaker Oats… and it features one of the most valuable giveaways I’ve ever featured on PBF.

But guess what? You have another chance to win an Apple product right here, right now!

Disclaimer: I was one of three bloggers selected by Quaker Oats to promote the Whole Grain Stampede during the month of September. I have been compensated for my contributions to the campaign, though my opinions are my own. I only agreed to this partnership because I am a frequent consumer of Quaker products and feel that whole grains have an important place in a balanced diet.
