Legs and Cardio Workout

Today marks the first day of a new job for me and I’m very excited.

Anyone else out there have a new job?

Anyway, today’s post is all about this workout that I did Wednesday.

I’m trying to come up with some workouts that involve cardio and weightlifting in one so that when I am working, I can do both in less time. Smart, right? Yeah…

So, after hitting 100 miles for April on Tuesday, I really wanted a couple days off of running. So LEG DAY it was!

I quickly came up with this workout:

Legs   Cardio

When you’re ready to work the booty, tone the legs, work your abs, and get cardio all in one workout, then here ya go!

And, a lot of work just went into making that picture ^

I get too excited to work with PicMonkey

I’m actually still sore. Yep. No joke. I haven’t been able to run either. So, I’ve been working the upper body a lot…and foam rolling like a crazy person.

Okay, I gotta go get ready now!

Have a fabulous Saturday everyone!

Legs ‘n’ Abs workout

Hey there, how’s your Sunday going for you so far?

I started off my morning with a lovely legs ‘n’ ab workout. The leg workout, I made myself, and it was tough. It had me drenched. It was a combination of legs + cardio, which was really an awesome duo. Here’s the workout:

PicMonkey Collage

I used Pic Monkey for this collage. I love that site. *I used 40lbs on the barbell*

Then I completed a cardio + ab workout:

Last night’s dinner was really delicious. I decided to do something more with the tuna from yesterday’s lunch. So my dad whipped up a tuna salad mixture. Tuna salad is always so good.


In the mix: Tuna, chopped onion, chopped boiled eggs, a little mayonnaise, salt and pepper. I created a spinach and tuna salad wrap with a whole wheat tortilla.

I also had raw broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots with hummus for dipping along with the wrap.


Around 3:30, I had half of a grapefruit and it was so delicious! Anyone else love the taste of grapefruits? They’re a very refreshing fruit and there are tons of reasons you should have them in your diet!

Then later my mom and I popped some popcorn (on the stove, always!) and watched the Miss America competition!


I used  a big spoonful of coconut oil with 3/4 cup of popcorn seeds. I also spray the bottom of the pan with cooking spray to keep it from burning (TIP!)


I like putting sea salt and cinnamon on my popcorn. I think it tastes so, so good.


This morning I ate some Kashi Blueberry Waffles (my favorite). And there was no more almond butter to put on top of them, oh no!


Thank goodness for back-up!


Question of the day:

Miss New York won Miss America, do you think that was a good choice? Was there someone else you wanted to win? I personally think it was a good choice, but I was rooting for Miss Wyoming! I loved her piece on the piano.
