10-Minute HIIT Workout You Can Do Anywhere

Happy National Running Day! Did you get your run on today? Today actually is a rest day for me, but I got my run on bright and early yesterday morning.

Workout

After breakfast, I immediately put on my running gear. I knew if I dillydallied in my office, I’d get sucked into my inbox and miss out on the cool morning hours.

I ran without my watch, but grabbed my tunes. I listened to the Macklemore station on Pandora, which was awesome for running. I ran my usual 3-mile loop, zoned out, and enjoyed the experience.

I struggling getting into the run at first, but, eventually, I sort of started to get into a groove. When I was running longer distances, it always took me a good 1-2 miles before I felt comfortable, so I didn’t let myself get discouraged. I reminded myself it will take some time to get back into it.

Snack

After my run, I showered up and then snacked on some pineapple-flavored Chobani aka “the best flavor ever.”

Mal loves Chobani and eats one every day with his breakfast, so I always buy a variety of flavors at the grocery store for him. I typically buy a few extra pineapples, thinking I’ll eat one during the week, but Mal always eats them first, so I rarely ever get one. I was pumped to see a pineapple in the fridge yesterday. I guess I should just buy all pineapple and a couple of other flavors to solve this problem, huh? #pineappleloverproblems

A little while later, I headed to a dentist appointment. No cavities! And I finally got a mouthguard, which I’ve been putting off since December.

Lunch

After my appointment, I headed home to make lunch. On the menu: an open-face egg and cheese sandwich.

And mixed greens with a deliciously thick and cheesy salad dressing.

I love when salad dressings have a little substance to them. I feel like I can eat just greens without adding a whole bunch of other stuff and still call it a salad.

To make the dressing, I whisked together the following ingredients:

  1. Hi, Just wondering what toast you like best? Is that the same kind as the breakfast? Curious about your thoughts on Udi’s vs. Food for Life GF products.
    I avoid gluten, but generally find Ezekiel to be fine because it is sprouted and has been shown to be well tolerated by many who can’t do gluten.

    Your lunch looks yum. Something similar to my lunch only I had 1/2 avocado + hummus + 2 eggs on the toast.

  2. I had a full body weights circuit on my workout schedule today (naturally I miss the boat on this holiday) but I DID sign up for Rock and Roll Vegas in November – that counts for something right? I love Plain Chobani so I can then throw a ton of fruit and granola into it 🙂 My boyfriend has taken a liking to it as well (he’s recently finally gotten on board to sub sour cream for Greek Yogurt) and opens up a yogurt, takes half of it, covers it up and puts it back in the fridge. Mini snack for me? #yogurtproblems

  3. If you haven’t already tried them, buy the Chobani Flips! Omg the Key Lime Crumble is amazing–key lime yogurt with graham cracker crumbles and white chocolate chips. It’s basically dessert! They have a coconut flavor with almonds and dark chocolate too. I can’t find them everywhere, but I usually get them at Target. I pretty much say “holy yum” every time I eat one 🙂
