Shew!  Day two of being back in the gym, and I’m feelin’ fine.  Well, let’s be honest, I’m feelin’ alright.  I’ve already mentally prepared myeslf for the fact that it’s going to take me a little bit of time to get back to where I was, so that’s what I was ready for this morning.  Jimmy leaves for work at 7:15AM, so I’m setting my alarm for 7AM so that I can be sure I get out of bed in the morning, rather than hitting snooze {I am the “snooze” queen}.

I started out with one of my favorite treadmill workouts from PBF.

I love this baby because it keeps me sweatin’, and it’s one of the only things that will keep me on the treadmill for 55 minutes.  Run 13.1 miles outside?  Of course.  Run over an hour on the treadmill?  I’ll pass.

I decided earlier this morning that I wanted to focus on my arms/upper body after cardio.  So after doing 3 sets of 10 assisted pull-ups, I grabbed a set of 10 lb dumbbells and completed the circuit below as quickly as possible {going for the lower weights/high reps type of idea}.  I probably haven’t done anything upper body in about 2-3 months, so I will most likely be sore tomorrow….

Speedy Upper Body Workout*:

20 Bicep Curls
15 Shoulder Press
15 Hammer Curls
15 Bent Over Rows
15 Tricep Extensions

Repeat 3X

*I was having trouble uploading my meme for this workout for some reason.  Repeat each move back to back to back, only taking a 30 second rest between each set.

I then came home to eat a quick breakfast and get ready before work.  The day before I cooked my Brussels Sprout and Sweet Potato Hash and added tomatoes.  It’s delicious and super easy.  When you’re ready to chow down, simply fry and egg to top it off.

And Turkey Bacon….can’t forget the Turkey Bacon.

Oh, and the grapefruit.

And the coffee.

Okay, now I’m done.

Look at that nummy close-up.  One of my favorite breakfasts.

What are some of your favorite breakfasts?  What strategies keep you on the treadmill longer than 30 minutes?
