Even though I was in the know of possible cooler weather this week, I woke up to something truly unexpected.
I mean it is mid-April, correct?
I kid you not… I was just telling Scott how excited I was to see the green grass reappearing on our evening walk last night.
I also purchased a couple pairs of spring flats and sandals on mega clearance yesterday… which I guess will have to wait until I can officially retire these bad boys.
So close, Michigan. So close.
One thing I can always count on to warm me up is a big cup of coffee and a plateful of warm cookin’.
(Dunkin’ Hazelnut coffee with almond milk, egg beaters with sharp cheddar cheese, turkey bacon + organic strawberries and grapes.)
I originally felt like taking a morning run with Roadie for my workout today, but I lost full interest in that thought when I saw white ground.
Days like today are perfect for inspiration to get back to the gym and try out a new workout. Here’s one I put together just a few days ago!
30 Min. Steady + Sweaty Elliptical Workout
I actually used to skip right over the elliptical for cardio workouts. I have always been a treadmill girl, and didn’t think the elliptical could be all that interesting or challenging.
Over the past few years, however, I have enjoyed incorporating the machine into my cardio rotations and can fully eat my words on the whole “not challenging enough” claim. It’s all about incline and resistance!
Backpedaling a little bit, I threw this workout together while I was on the machine and thought it was a good one. It wasn’t as hard as some of my others… but it did the job and kept me entertained for thirty minutes of stationary cardio.
(Although I encourage you to try the workouts I post, please note that they may not be the right settings or exercises for you. Also, please note my full disclaimer in the right sidebar!)
I might just try it again tonight before Fitness Pilates.
Welp, I’m off to get goin’ on the day. I hope you are having a great start to yours, and I’ll be back later with the kick-off to Beauty Week!
