Mid-Day Workout


One of the beauties of working from home (on the rare occasion I have to do so) is that I can squeeze in a lunch-time workout at the gym.  Today’s routine consisted of the following:  2 mile run on the treadmill, weight lifting  (chest and arms), sit-ups and back-ups on the stability ball, 60 pushups and 500 jump ropes.  I am especially proud of the jump ropes–I did 5 sets of 100 and in between did the pushups.  I felt very good doing this until I saw the really skinny but buff woman nearby doing a crazy routine that consisted of a kettle ball upper body exercise, pushups and mountain climbers.  I will admit she scared me.    But that’s ok because I bet she couldn’t do 500 jump ropes!

I came home and made a delicious smoothie.  Ingredients below. 

Blueberry-Peach Cobbler Smoothie

Ingredients:

1/2 cup ice

1 cup orange juice

1 cup lowfat vanilla yogurt

1 cup frozen peaches

1/2 cup frozen blueberries

1 scoop vanilla protein mix (25 grams protein)

Mix in blender and enjoy.  Yields 16 ounces.  Add more peaches or fewer blueberries to bring out a peachier taste.

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
