Morning Workout

24 Oct

I just got done from my morning workout.  I did 20 minutes of intervals and 45 minutes of strength.  Here are my workout stats:

  • Time:  1:06:01
  • Calories:  551 (40% fat)
  • Max Heart Rate:  190bpm (98% max)
  • Average Heart Rate:  155bpm (80% max)

After the WO, I headed up to the store to buy some Knudsen’s Pure Cranberry Juice.  I was starving, so I grabbed a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Lara Bar to tide me over.  It was so great!  I love that it only had 2 ingredients, so awesome!  When I got home I had a organic gala apple as well.


Here is the Abs workout I did the other night  It took me a little over 15 minutes to complete.

  • Plank
  • Straight Arm Plank
  • Side Plank with 5 lifts at the end

Repeat 3-4 times holding the poses as long as you can

  • Reverse Crunch
  • Mini Crunches (bringing the shoulders to the ceiling)
  • Holding Crunch with Leg Lifts
  • Russian Twist
  • Pilates 100 (holding for 30seconds- 1 minute)

Repeat 3-4 times doing 15-25 reps for each exercise (or more if desired)

This afternoon will be filled with laundry, football, pilates and possibly carving pumpkins!   : )

Have you ever had a Larabar?  Which flavor is your favorite?

    I eat a larabar pretty much every single day! I love the chocolate chip cookie dough, coconut cream pie, and tropical fruit tart. But they’re all good! 🙂

      I’ve haven’t tried to coconut cream pie or tropical fruit tart yet. I will def. have to pick those flavors up and give them a go! : )

    I still have yet to find these new interesting larabar flavors! I like cherry pie, but I’m not crazy about them. I think I OD’d on them a while ago. Nice workout!

    I love intervals! And many of those are my favorite ab moves. You have me hankering for a good workout. 😀

    I’ve never tried a LaraBar. I think I might be the only one 🙂

    Um, YUM! I haven’t found the chocolate chip cookie dough lara bar yet and now I’m drooling just thinking about it!! I love the apple pie, lemon and coconut varieties, but really you can’t go wrong with any lara bar if you ask me 🙂 Great ab workout btw!

    One of my favorite Larabar flavors is the Tropical Fruit Tart.

    I haven’t gotten to try the new flavors, but from the regulars my favorite is either PB&J or Cashew Cookie!
