50 x 3 Circuit Workout

Want to know a sure-fire way to start your Monday off right?


Make an absolutely delicious breakfast.

I toasted up two whole wheat waffles and topped them with a “baked” apple (chopped, topped with cinnamon, and microwaved on high for 1 minute) and a drizzle of maple syrup.

These were outstanding, and are officially my new favorite way to eat waffles. They’d probably taste fine without any syrup at all, actually.

Scrambled eggs on the side for some protein:

After catching up on blogs and allowing my breakfast to digest, I headed down to my parent’s basement for a workout.

Boy do I have an at-home circuit workout for you!

I was inspired by the 100 Workout that originally came from Pinterest. I changed it up because I wanted to incorporate more exercises than were included in the original workout. To keep things interesting, I ended up making three different circuits that I am collectively calling the 50 x 3 Circuit Workout.

I should note that I did the crunches on an exercise ball and the push-ups on my knees. Oh, and that one minute plank at the end of the last circuit was sort of split into a 40 second and 20 second plank Winking smile. I also rode on the stationary bike for 10 minutes to warm-up and 20 minutes to cool-down.


Holy cow, this workout was no joke! I collapsed on the floor after that final plank.

After showering and getting ready for the day, I headed out to run a few errands. My first stop was at Oryana to grab some lunch:

I also hit up the mall to look for a dress for a party this weekend (unsuccessful) and the bank.


Well, I just finished packing up my things and as soon as I hit “publish” I’ll be hitting the road to drive back down to Grand Rapids. Plans tonight include folding laundry, eating leftover white chicken chili, and watching The Bachelor with Elly Open-mouthed smile.


Have a great day!

 

P.S. I wanted to give a special thank you to readers Nicky and Lindsay for sending me such sweet emails after yesterday's post. It was very much appreciated Smile.
