It's Only Monday??

It was hard being back at work after such a great weekend.  I had a bit of a slow day at work, so when I got out I was ready for a good workout! I decided to do an interval workout on the treadmill along with some arm and abs exercises.
The treadmill can be anyone's worst enemy.  It's hard to stay interested when you are looking at the same thing for 45 minutes.  That's why I love to do interval workouts.  Here's the one I did today.
Warm up:
Walk for 2 minutes at 4.0
Run 30 seconds 5.0
30 seconds at 5.3
1 minute at 5.5

1 minute 6.4
2 minutes 6.0
1 minute 6.6
2 minutes 6.0
1 minute 6.8

2 minutes 6.2
Incline (all @ speed 6/2):
1.5 minutes 1.0 incline
1.5 mintues 2.0 incline
1.5 minutes 3.0 incline
1.5 minutes 4.0 incline
1.5 minutes 3.0 incline
1.5 minutes 2.0 incline

I finished out with some sprints and ended around 4 miles in 40 minutes. I headed home to cook my dinner. Tonight I cooked Blue Cheese BBQ Turkey Burgers courtesy of Bethenny Frankel .  I cut this recipe in half and served mine over some spinach leaves, carrots, snap peas, and pinepple. I love this recipe because it is simple and only requires a few ingredients.

I used these four ingredients and 1/2lb ground turkey
Then I cooked them on the stovetop and chowed down
YUM! I also had a small slice of great harvest dakota bread.  


  1. See, I had the intention of going on the treadmill today and then I saw your post and figured I would just follow your laid out plan....and then I became terrified haha.

  2. YAY my first comment! It seriously took me 10 minutes to try and figure out how to respond to you haha. You can do it Katie! You can always adjust the speed for what you are more comfortable with. I actally got this from but had to lower the speed so I could finish it
