This morning I got a workout in. It was only 15 minutes but still, it got my heart rate up, made me sweat in this freezing weather, and got me set for the long day.
What I Did
- 1 minute jump roping (you don’t have to have a jump rope to do this)
- 1 minute plank
- 20 Knee tucks on each side
- 20 Butterfly situps
- 20 jumping jacks
- 20 squats
Repeat 3-4 times through!
Sometimes you have to force yourself to do things even when you really want to stay in bed. Yeah, its okay to stay in bed all warm and happy, but getting up and doing something 10X better for yourself is way more worth the time. Don’t waste time. Get things done.
With that said, here’s my post workout breakfast:
I had a cup of plain non-fat Greek yogurt (Costco Brand!!!) with Stevia (Best sweetener on the planet and also a good alkaline balancer) and a chopped banana. Then I sprinkled cinnamon on top. This combo has been really tasty the past week. It’s also really simple, so I find it to be a good choice. Sometimes I get tired of my green smoothies.
I also had it on Sunday morning!
When I got home, I sipped on some coffee and ate a Kashi waffle with almond butter for energy! I needed it! I had a hard running workout to complete!
What I Did
- 3 minute warm-up
- 1 minute sprint
- 2 minute jog
- Repeat 6X through
- 30 second sprint
- 30 second walk/rest
- Cool down
Got a total of three miles and I was very tired! Then I got in a couple of other short workouts in from ToneItUp.com
Dinner was delicious. I just finished eating, and can definitely say it was a wonderfully satisfying meal!
I had steamed Swiss Chard for the first time. It is so yummy!
I also had quinoa, boiled egg, sautéed broccoli, cauliflower, onions, and chicken. And a few jalapenos.
Question of the Day
Have you ever tried Swiss Chard before?
Do you ever get workouts done in the morning?
