New workout Challenge!

on January 4, 2012

Good Afternoon!  It’s super sunny today and I am loving it!  The temp outside is still a bit cool, but it’s winter ya know.  🙂

I woke up without my alarm this morning, mainly because I didn’t set it.  On the days I go in late, I usually don’t set it and after yesterdays run my legs needed the rest.  They are super sore today!!  Post workout I went for some breakfast………and I changed it up.  Ahhh I love and respect change.  If you knew me you would know I was lying.  hehe

1 Dannon Key Lime Greek Yogurt, with some cereal in the mix.  Pumpkin spice flax, and Quaker oat bran.   I don’t think I took a breath as I was scarfing it down!

I spared you a picture of dinner last night, mostly because I had the same thing for lunch and knew I would post a pic.  🙂

 Quinoa, with chicken and spinach…..and an orange on the side.  I was bound and determined to eat that stinkin orange.  It was VERY difficult to peel!  I prayed that it would be sweet… was. 😉

My boss had a meeting at our main office today so I am just now getting a break, so I thought I would do a little blogging.  Tonight is going to be jammed packed so I wanted to fit it in.  McDonald’s is right next to where I work, and they have Wi-Fi.  Yippie!

Now to the main topic I really wanted to share with you!  I was checking out one of my favorite blogs called Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life, and there was a post about a new workout called Tabata.  After googling it and looking it up on YouTube, I thought that I would give it a try.  You really must check this out.  High intensity workouts, that are extremely short in time.  Who can beat that!!??

I also wanted to share this 30-day challenge that I saw on another blog that I enjoy reading, it’s called Itty Bits of Balance.  Brittany has incorporated this workout in her daily routine called BodyRock.  After reading about it, I thought that I would give it a go.  You simply go to the website and they have posted the workout for the day.  There is a video that you have access to that shows the workout and also breaks the workout down for you.  Which I liked, because the instructor gives you variations.  I will admit, some of the moves are a bit challenging, but I really did like it.  My workout this morning was 12 minutes long….12 minutes!!

Now I will do something else later, because I am a dork like that, but I really like this challenge.  If you want, follow along with me!  I will be posting my progress and the challenges that come with it.  I am sure the workouts will only get more difficult.  🙂

Anyway, it’s back to work for me.  I hope you have a great rest of the day wherever you are!

P.S.  Please forgive the randomness of this post!  Trying to fit this in with only an hour was kinda tough.

    What a great list of workouts!! I was thinking about trying BodyRock too. And that quinoa with spinach looks yummy. I think I’m ready for lunch now….

  5. the bodyrock workouts are intense! i think once I am done with marathon training I might give them a go. I’ve been using pieces of them to create my own tabattas…but umm i know they aren’t as hard 🙂

    • Oh holy cow they are! Good luck with your marathon training! 🙂 I love the tabata workouts too… they are just as hard. Who knew short and fast workouts would work. :p Thanks so much for stopping by….Heading over to check out your blog 🙂
