Today’s Workout

I must say that today the weather was absolutely PERFECT for an outdoor workout! I really enjoyed myself today. 🙂  I did not used to be much of an outdoors person, but since I have started working out I am finding that I really love it outside!  It makes working out a lot more interesting than simply staring at gym walls…if you get bored easily working out, or have a hard time getting motivated…go outside! I have been working out in a large cemetery, it’s free, beautiful, quiet, and interesting.  There are lots of hills, and it stays nicely manicured.  I call it my playground now. 🙂

 

  • Jogging:
    • 60 minutes (+150 pts)
    • 10 minutes (+25 pts)
    • intervals on wicked hills: the second set was backwards jogging
  • Running:
    • 10 minutes (+30 pts)
    • intervals on wicked hills
  • Push-Up:
    • 25 (+12 pts)
    • Incline
  • Walking:
    • 25 minutes (+27 pts)
  • Plank:
    • 25 seconds (+8 pts)
    • 15 seconds (+5 pts)

I have found that when I have a light breakfast of raw walnuts (about a fourth to half a cup), I tend to have more energy than when I eat a few eggs prior to working out.  So, I had walnuts early this morning, and had my eggs when I got home for lunch.

About therunningcavewoman

An about to be *former* fatty. I follow a Paleo nutrition way of eating, and have recently adopted an active lifestyle. At Christmas 2010, my mom took a picture of me, and I glanced at it. Just that glance triggered something in my brain (finally) that I had to get healthy, and quick! I had been to the doctor several times about irregular menstrual cycles, and I was having issues with my blood pressure before Christmas, so I had an idea that I had gotten very unhealthy. December 26th I began researching ways of eating online, and decided that Paleo was the way for me to go. It was either December 28th or 29th that I quit processed foods, and most carbs cold turkey. Then, over the next few weeks I weined myself off of grains, and milk entirely. Not long after that I quit most fruits, and only have fruit as an occasional treat now. Since the end of December, I have lost 40ish pounds (as of March 2011), and I am still losing. I decided a few weeks ago that I would train for a triathlon, and hope to compete in one before the end of the summer. I can't wait until I see what I look like in six months! This is so exciting!
