This morning was a slow one. I watched some reality TV and read up on US Weekly, found out Rob Kardashian is dating Rihanna! Shocking! When I finally went over to make some breakfast, I stared at the refrigerator for a while and came up with an over easy egg…this is my go to for breakfast if you couldn’t tell. But, I wanted to turn it into something a little bit different than the typical eggs and toast.
My inspiration, Brie, a phenomenal appetizer that I LOVE to make. I took fontina cheese, leftover from the Margarita Pizza, melted a bit on top and added some raspberry jam to the toast. It was better than I could have imagined. While I was eating it, I was thinking that some ground pepper would also be great on this to spice it up. Spice jam is always unexpected, in a good way.
The rest of the day was fairly relaxing. Nothing notable, but the best kind of saturday. After an afternoon of America’s Next Top Model, I decided to finally head to the gym. This process of getting dressed and out the door took me almost two episodes to accomplish. I was really only pushed when I looked at what time it closed, and it was an hour and a half away…TIME TO GO!
I went to the gym with one goal in mind. RUN 4 MILES. Now, I haven’t run that far without stopping in a while. I normally go to the gym and stop at 3 miles because I really do find the treadmill to be boring. After 3 miles, I’ll go find something a bit more captivating to finish it out with.
If I’m running outside, the FL heat starts to get me before I can really push past the 3 mile mark.
So I got on the treadmill with a plan…intervals. Lots and lots of intervals. I find making your goal 2 minutes away, or 1 minute away makes the entire run fly by a bit faster. This was my workout:
I was dying by the end of it, but man does it feel good! I loved this workout and will definitely be coming back to it again. It made the time fly by and the little rests in there at 6.0 were seriously necessary.
Give it a try!
For dinner, I went with a simple pasta and vodka sauce. I sprinkled it with some fresh parmesan cheese and basil leaves. Delicious. Just what I needed after a workout like that. Some carbs! 🙂
For tonight, I’m thinking a glass of wine. I deserved it!
Have a great Saturday night!
