Spring has Sprung! Horray!
I started off my day a little slower than usual today. Between interning M-F and then working on the weekends this morning was the first time in weeks (maybe even months?) that I didn’t have to wake up to an alarm and be somewhere by 8am. It felt glorious! Although I tried my hardest to keep sleeping when my natural body clock was waking me around 7am,
I managed to lay in bed catching up on some blog reading before hitting the gym.
Usually I have a plan when heading to the gym but today I just headed down there with nothing in mind. I jumped on the treadmill and completed what turned out to be quite the workout! I love High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and almost always do some form of it for my cardio days.
Today was no different, and I ended up completing the following workout:
This workout had me jogging, sprinting and power-walking on an incline and I was a complete sweaty mess by the end, covering exactly 3 miles in 30 mins. I rounded out my gym time with some lifting and core work, before heading home to cook up a hearty breakfast.
An egg scramble with red bell pepper, onion, spinach and tomato with a side of red potatoes.
Fact: this is the first time I have ever cooked potatoes with breakfast, and judging by how good they tasted I think it will be more of a regular occurrence. It was such a pleasure to have a cooked breakfast that I could sit down and enjoy instead of scrambling around the kitchen cooking up a bowl of oats like I do when pressed for time
