Some meals and a quick workout

Hi friends!  Can you believe it’s already almost FALL?!?!  I am more of a “glass is half empty” type of gal so this just makes me sad because it means that winter is right around the corner…

Aaaanyway, since my life has been somewhat boring uneventful, I thought I would share today’s sweaty little workout and some pictures of the food I’ve been eating.  This is really exciting stuff people, I know.  But hey, you can’t say I didn’t warn you that this post would be a complete waste of time.

So yea, let’s get to it!

Today’s workout:

20 minutes on the elliptical followed by this circuit…

Bicep curl + wall sit x 15 (I used 12 lb dumbbells)
45 second plank
Kettleball swings x 15 (I used 20 lb KB)
Alt. standing side crunch x 30 (20 lb KB)*
30 second plank jacks + 30 second mountain climbers

Repeat circuit 3x (for a total of 4 rounds)

*Here is a visual of the standing side crunches

I’ve been dropping the ball when it comes to using my fancy-dancy camera but here’s a look-see at the pictures I did manage to take over the last couple of weeks.  [Side note: it’s pretty pathetic that the ONLY pictures I’ve taken involve food but nobody is perfect]

That’s all I’ve got folks!

Anyone have any vacations coming up (or anything that is exciting, in general)?

-I’m a bored little person over here so I don’t have anything coming up, waaah!
