Good Morning! It’s a chilly one up here in Michigan.
I found it humorous
not really when my friends informed me of the 70-80°F weather in Florida yesterday. Awesome.
I seem to be slowly adjusting to the cold, but I have to say that I do miss that “brisk fall chill” during a run outside. I can not think of a time where we had a “chill” here. It is just straight up cold.
So what does that mean for you? A lot of indoor cardio workouts are comin’! Here is a great one I completed after a Fitness Pilates class at the gym yesterday. This time, I have the incline set at 10, and the resistance varies every few minutes to resemble a hill climb.
*Please note: There are instructions to pedal backwards halfway through the workout. This is to target a different set of muscles, but is completely optional. As always, every exercise machine varies in settings, so feel free to modify levels as needed.
Andddd, I am pretty sure that is why I woke up with sore legs this morning. It was a good one!
On my way out from the gym, I grabbed a “B Meyer” Lemon Drink Chia from my bag to rehydrate. I find them so very refreshing!
Right after getting home, I took Roadie for his afternoon walk and ate it. I literally fell and ate it on the pavement, and I almost wish I had a picture to show you. Almost.
Maybe I had a case of jello legs? Yeah… that’s it… jello legs.
We’ll forget it was really just me being a klutz and slipping on ice.
In from the walk, I was pretty hungry for a late lunch. On the menu was leftovers, and I enjoyed a few cut up peppers and cucumbers dipped in Sabra Roasted Pine Nut Hummus while I heated up my lunch.
I could seriously eat an entire vegetable and hummus party tray. If you ever have me over and serve something remotely similar to this, I would advise you to prepare extras. 😉
Soon after, I dug into a hearty helping of Lean Hamburger Noodle Casserole.
It was extra satisfying on a very “brisk winter cold” afternoon.
Big plans to do some online Christmas shopping and finally clean out and organize my closet before then… who’s jealous?

Question of the Day
• What do you like to do to change up your cardio routine?
I am a huge fan of interval workouts. Some might view having to change settings during a workout as annoying, but I look forward to having something to do. They make a half hour of cardio go by in a flash!
