Strength and Treadmill Mix-up

Yesterday’s workout called for some strength training. I look forward to my strength training, which I do Monday, Wednesday, Friday. As much as I love cardio, I really love the feeling after a great workout with some weights. I feel strong:)

I always make sure to do a bit of cardio though to really get my heart pumpin’. I saw this treadmill workout on Lindsay’s blog and thought it looked like a good mix of intervals and hills. I ended up switching it around though and doing the intervals first then the hills second and shortened the time. My workout ended up looking like this.

After my workout, it was time for dinner of course.

My mom is sick (sore throat, etc.) I hope I don’t get sick, blah.

So she made some soup. I had a cup of tomato with this bowl of protein.009

Looks gross but tasted good. Beans, edamame, tomatoes, cottage cheese, turkey.

Pretty much a salad without the lettuce because I was way too lazy to cut and wash the lettuce :)

 

What is your favorite strength training move?

What do you make to eat when you are lazy?

  1. Aww, hope your mom feels better soon! I always keep a can or two of Amy’s soups around in case I’m feeling lazy. That + a slice of toast + whatever random veggies I have laying around = perfectly satisfying with no prep work!
