Interval and Circuit

Yesterday after procrastinating getting some work done, I decided it was time for the gym! I was itching to get out of the house and get my sweat on. I’m always anxious to workout whenever I don’t complete it in the morning.

I started with an interval workout that looked like this:

Whew, intervals really make me work up a sweat! That 10.0 speed is no joke people! Loved it 😉

Afterwards, I had printed out a few strength training workouts and I ended up using this one from Fitnessista. It was a circuit style workout and I absolutely loved it.

It was great and kept me sweating throughout the entire thing. I didn’t find myself bored like I get sometimes when I’m strength training on my own. I highly recommend it for those who get bored easily!

I came home, showered and got started on dinner. I took these pictures with my phone because I was too lazy to get up and get my camera.

Chicken breast with bread crumbs, a potato, and a side salad with tomatoes, carrots, and cottage cheese. Simple and perfect.

Now I’m off to school for a nice day full of learning! I’ll be hitting up a spin class later in the day most likely. Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!!
