Treadmill workout, total body circuit and my favorite salad

Guys, I am soooo happy about the long weekend.  My job has been kicking my butt lately with these crazy hours so an extra day off is ALWAYS welcome 🙂

This weekend I got in a couple of really sweet workouts and made a yummy yet easy dinner. SO…

I am going to move it along in chronological order so let’s start off with Friday.  I didn’t really feel like braving the cold so I made this balsamic onion, bacon and goat cheese pizza recipe that I found on Pinterest + my favorite salad [aside: For the pizza, I bought a pre-made wheat crust and used turkey bacon instead, it was still delicious!]

My favorite salad is so simple yet so delicious, I can honestly tell you that I eat this thing AT LEAST once a day.  To make it, all you need is: Arugula (or some other super green mix, spinach, bok choy, etc), goat cheese, dried cranberries, walnuts, liquid agave and olive oil.  Just toss all the ingredients in a bowl and ENJOY!  You’ll thank me in the morning.

Saturday morning got started off on the wrong foot, to say the least.  I was signed up to do my very first Bar Method class with my friend Leslie.  Well, for some reason, I thought the studio was a lot closer to my apartment so I wounded up full-on sprinting to the place.  WELL, I got there TWO WHOLE MINUTES late and they wouldn’t let me take the class!!!  OMG, to say I was pissed would be the understatement of the year.  So instead, I pouted walked my booty home and did this awesome treadmill workout instead:

Guys, this thing kicked ASS (for me, anyway)!

Today was nothing special, I didn’t feel like doing much in terms of working out but I’ve been taking a lot of cheat days so I thought it best to drag myself to the gym.  I ended up doing 15 minutes on the elliptical + 10 minutes on the stair climber (the one that rotates) + this awesome circuit workout that I found on Peanut Butter Fingers <— If you’ve never been to her website, check it out ASAP, it’s awesome!  Oh yea, the workout!…

The workout only took about 20 minutes so I was on my way back to the couch in no time!

As for the rest of my day, I am going to fart around with my camera and take random pictures of Chicago like a total tourist.  Then tonight, I’m off to see Identity Thief and then to grab some dinner.

Hope you all have an awesome Monday off!!!!
