National Cookie Day Celebrating and Welcome Back Strength Training!

Good Morning/Afternoon for my East Coast/European/Overseas friends!

I apologize for being so late — this morning kind of got away from me after an amazingly relaxing evening :).

How many people celebrated National Cookie Day yesterday?  I enjoyed that Pumpkin Cookie like it was my job, without any shame!  Although I have to admit, I celebrate National Cookie Day almost everyday without shame…

This Morning

Thanks to my late start Thursdays, I got to sleep in until 745 this morning :).  I woke up slowly, and got myself to the gym by 8 for a quick short run/strength work out

Workout of the Day:  3 miles treadmill, full body strength

The 3 miles were just a warm up, and to keep up the consistency with the running :).  For the strength portion, I did 3 short routines, one for abs, legs and arms.  Overall it looked like this:

  • 20 reverse crunches
  • 20 cross crunches
  • 20 leg raises
  • 20 bicycles
  • 30 flutter kicks
  • 20 heel touches
  • 60 second plank
  • 20 supermen
  • 20 squats
  • 30 forward lunges
  • 40 calf raises
  • 50 second wall sit
  • 100 jumping jacks
  • 50 second wall sit
  • 40 sumo squats
  • 30 standing leg raises
  • 20 squats
  • 20 push ups
  • 20 triangle push ups
  • 40 air punches
  • 20 simultaneous arm lifts
  • 20 push ups
  • 20 triangle push ups

By the end of the work out, my body was nice and warmed up, pushed well, and not OVERLY pushed.  I loved it.  Quick, full body, and sweaty. Just like I like it 🙂

And now it’s time to get back to work 🙂 Happy Thursday all!

It’s the last day to enter the giveaway open until Thursday!
