Peanut Butter Toast

15 Oct

Good Morning Beauties!  I hope everyone is having a terrific Friday morning!  The Husband and I just got back from the gym.  I ran slow intervals (because of my hip) and lifted legs and shoulders.

Here are my stats from the workout:

  • Time:  1:01:28
  • Calories:  502 (35% fat)  Kind of low compared to most other workouts
  • Max Heart Rate:  191bpm (99% max)
  • Average Heart Rate:  153bpm (79% max)

As you an see I was a little slow in the gym today!  I actually just lifted and did not cardio bursts between my sets.  You can see by not adding those in I burned a lot less calories and had a lower average heart rate.  I highly recommend doing the bursts if you can!

I think I will be sore tomorrow for sure!

For breakfast I’m having peanut butter toast (yay!) and a cup of coffee.  Oh how I’ve missed my peanut butter toast after not having it fort 2 whole days!

I loaded on the peanut butter!




Perfect little breakfast to tide me over!


Now onto Morning Meditation

Motivation for the Day:  Mexico!

3 Things I am Thankful for Today:  1- Friday 2- I had a great dreams last night 3- My Health

Goal for the Day:  Try and eat as many vegetables as I can today.  Have at least one meal be a salad (for some reason when we have company we tend to eat more then usual and drink more then usual.  Since Mexico is only 3 weeks away I want to eat as healthy as can while company is in town)!

Motivational Quote of the Day:  If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.  -William Arthur Ward

Okay, I am out!  I have 25 minutes to get to work and start training my first client and am still in my dirty workout clothes!  Gotta run!  : )

What is your favorite workout?  Do you have a certain time of day you love working out at?

I love running and hiking on dirt trails!  There’s nothing better in my mind!  I also love morning workouts.  If I don’t do them first thing I never get around to doing them!

Hiking in Park City- one of my favorite places!


Olympic Park was in the background!
