After a whirlwind of a weekend and a vacation day yesterday, I knew that I had to get back on track with eating healthy and working out. So this morning I woke up bright & early and jogged 5 minutes to the gym for a cross training workout. I began with 20 minutes on the elliptical and then moved on to the following arm toning workout (copied from Pinterest):
*Repeat set 2-3 times
I did the set twice and it turned out to be great workout! I love how it constantly switched up the moves so I never got bored and it was over in no time at all. I’ll definitely be repeating this workout real soon.
While on the elliptical, I read People Style magazine and this little tid bit of an article caught my attention:
Workout meetups are such a good idea! It’s so nice being able to catch up with a friend and get a great workout. Plus, it’s wayyyy cheaper than meeting a friend for dinner and drinks. 😀 I haven’t had one in a while but maybe I’ll try bringing them back! Usually my friends don’t want to run at 5:15 am (I don’t blame them, obviously) and I’m not a fan of running after work when it’s super hot and sunny…… but I do love running in the evening once the weather cools down. So this Fall I’ll have to plan more workout meetups!
I usually eat breakfast at work but I was starving after my workout so I quickly prepared 2 frozen waffles and topped them each with banana slices and drizzled honey.
I had the van’s “power grains – 10g protein” waffles that I recently discovered at the grocery store.
By the way, I had no clue that van’s even made protein waffles!? Maybe these waffles are new?? Either way, they were delicious and I’m very excited to have a new favorite frozen waffle. 😀
Question: Do you like workout meetups?? Do you usually run, go to the gym, yoga, or do something else on your meetups?
