All About the Abs
Before I get into today’s workout I want to rewind and go over last nights dinner.
As I mentioned last night, Joe was busy in the kitchen using up the plethora (yup, I said ‘plethora’) of fresh veggies we have in the fridge. He found this recipe online for vegetable pasta and fudged it a little to incorporate what we had on hand.
We figured you could easily add some seasoned chicken and perhaps some feta cheese — we will be sure to try that next time. Oh, and I don’t know what types of noodles those are but they are super fun to eat. Don’t hate until you try it!
We hit up the gym again this morning and I am already sore, a mere 10 hours later. As is often the case I started off with 35 minutes on the treadmill. I didn’t do my usual sprint intervals, rather I did an endurance run (or what I call an endurance run). Here is how it went:
I liked this combination of 5 minutes easy pace with 5 minutes of not so easy pace. I sure was sweating by the time it was over. I then did another All Abs All the Time workout and this is how it went:
I used a 16 pound medicine ball for the Oblique Twists.
I completed 3 rounds in 19:20. If you try this workout feel free to let me know your time and what you though of it.
I figured after all those ab workouts I should do something to strengthen my lower back so I did 3 sets of 15 chest raises on the exercise ball.
With winter fast approaching (there is already snow in the mountains — that’s the beginning of the end!!) Joe and I are realizing that our grilling days are numbered. Joe really wanted grilled hot dogs for lunch so we cooked up some Hebrew National all beef hot dogs. I caramelized some onions to go along with the deliciousness!
As you can see I had a side of last nights pasta with my hot dog. Ok, so not the healthiest lunch I have ever had but certainly not the unhealthiest (read: entire box of Kraft mac & cheese….on more than one occasion.)
Well, here is hoping that you had a relaxing, yet productive weekend like I did. Tomorrow is Monday — another chance to get it right!
