Glorious Sleep!

Zach made it home safe and sound last night from his European (work) adventure.

The whole family was SUPER excited to see him…I think Zach and I got got punched by Gus a few times jumping up and down.  It was super cute.

We enjoyed our tortilla soup, and Zach was knocked out on the couch by 830.  Poor kid. I managed to stay up and eat a bit of the chocolate he brought home for me though 🙂

This Morning

Since I haven’t had a day to sleep in for a few weeks with Zach,  sleeping in was WELL earned this morning.

Poor Zach wasn’t able to sleep in, but I slept in until 715, and woke up to the fire going and a warm comfy bedroom.  Since I didn’t want to do NOTHING to start my day, I did a quick little work out of :

  • 5 rounds of
  • 25 jumping jacks
  • 60 second plank

It was enough to get my blood pumping and brain working.

I still plan on working out AFTER work…and since I want to hold myself accountable, I’ll go ahead and let yall know what I’m going to be doing:

I call it a 10-10-10 routine.

  • 10 minutes treadmill
  • 10 miles bike
  • 10 minutes treadmill

A nice way to break up cardio, right?

Ok guys, work time! I’ll be back this afternoon for WIAW!

Question of the Morning: Does anybody else have any good 5-10 minute quick work out ideas that you can do first thing in the morning or before bed to get the blood pumpin?

  1. I love your idea of 10-10-10!!! We both know how much I hate the treadmill, but I think that would make it super easy! For me it’s about getting bored, and I think 10 min is the perfect time to trick my brain.

    First thing in the AM I think planks, wall-sits, some ab stuff, and push-ups are my quick go-to’s. They are not high intensity so it’s an easy way to slowly wake up. You’d be surprised how quickly you warm up doing those!

  2. I don’t have a specific workout for the AM but you should check out the book called “SPARK”. It’s by Dr. John Ratey … it’s all about hour exercise turns your brain on and how kids should be working out before school to optimize their learning, test scores etc!
    He came to speak at a school here to started a pilot program (before I went on maternity leave)…I’m eager to see how it’s going.
    His research is amazing.

  3. I use the short 15-minute workouts on my Nike app sometimes. Glad your hubby is home safe and sound…nice of him to bring you some chocolates. Enjoy your time together and run happy!! 🙂

  4. Glad your husband is home safe and sound! Breaking up workouts like that always make them easier for me, especially when I’m feeling less than motivated
