I slept like a rock last night! I guess that 4-hour night’s sleep from this weekend finally caught up to me.
As Ryan and I walked to the gym again, I began to wake up a bit and attempted to pump myself up for a good workout. Since I didn’t feel like going all-out right away, I warmed up with 20 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical beside Ryan while we chatted about the week ahead and our Easter plans. (Our Easter 2010 recap may be seen here.)
Once Ryan was done with his time on the treadmill, he hopped off and headed into the weight room while I hopped on his abandoned treadmill to complete a sweaty 25-minute interval workout.
I alternated running at an incline with speedier running at virtually no incline and in the end my workout looked like this:
And a stat recap for those of you who are number-hungry…
During the one minute spent running at an 8.0 pace, the chorus to Glee’s version of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” came on my iPod and totally reinvigorated my workout. Sometimes the music just moves you! I felt like I was flyin’ and powered through the remainder of my workout like a champ.
After our time at the gym was complete, Ryan and I headed home and I took Sadie on a 20-minute walk before getting ready for the day and makin’ breakfast.
Breakfast required basically no effort this morning thanks to a little prep work last night.
In the mix:
- 1/2 c. old fashioned oatmeal
- 1 heaping tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 c. almond milk
- 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
I topped my overnight oats with banana puffs cereal and ate ‘em alongside a cup of strawberry banana Chobani Greek yogurt for some protein.
This breakfast was so good. I was honestly a little sad when it was over.
Gotta get to work! Stay tuned for a giveaway this afternoon!
