Call Me Wimpy If You Must…

Hey friends!! How was your day? Mine wasn’t very fun :( Spent the whole day studying for my impossible test tomorrow. So looking forward to having it over with!! Around 11am, I needed a study break, so it was the perfect time for a run!!

The weather today wasn’t too chilly (low 40’s), but I’m really not feeling anything under 50 degrees for outside running at the moment! Call me wimpy if you must, but I like it warm! I enjoy sweating while working out! Ha!! That being said, I saw an awesome treadmill workout on IGE recently and decided to do it!! It’s the 41 minute interval treadmill workout by Kristin.


I had my post it’s taped to the treadmill so I knew exactly what to do and when! It was a GREAT one!! I did add on to it a little bit to total 4 miles of running, because I’m a little numbers crazy like that! Haha, I added:

  • 36-37: 8mph
  • 37-40: 6mph
  • 40-41: 7mph
  • 41-43: 6mph
  • 43-48: 4mph cool down
  • Total: 4.68 miles with 4 miles of running


I give this workout a hot and sweaty thumbs up!! I will definitely be doing these intervals again! Went by super fast and was definitely challenging!


After my workout it was time for lunch!!


I made a snack plate with:

  • Cucs
  • Snap Peas
  • Wheat Thins
  • Roasted Acorn Squash
  • Mini Sweet Pepper
  • Spicy Three Pepper Hummus


And the other half of the can of Amy’s Alphabet Veggie Soup. It filled me up pretty well but didn’t stick with me very long. A few hours later my tummy was growling!


I made some trail mix with cereal, peanuts, and chocolate chips. Love this combo! Salty and sweet! I also had a cup of Orange Black Tea!!


And I had some un-pictured Buffalo Cheddar Popcorn! Call me Snacker McSnackerson!!

After studying for the rest of the afternoon, my brain was fried! Ahhh!! I wanted to make something easy for dinner!! Pasta it was!


Whole Wheat Rotini with Creamy Tomato Sauce


With an orange on the side!!


And some Heath Bar Ice Cream for dessert! Yum!! I love ice cream!!

What is your favorite ice cream??

Mine is Cake Batter with Cookie Dough from Coldstone!! I have totally been craving it! Definitely need to hit up Coldstone soon!


Sadie was pampered and had a bath today so she wanted to do a photo shoot. So I will leave you with some pics of my pup!!



Isn’t she the cutest?!? I may be a little biased :)

Hope y’all have a GREAT night!!


  1. Oh those intervals look tough! great job. i won't call you whimpy though :D

  2. Awesome intervals! You are so not wimpy.

    Can you believe I've never been to Coldstone before?

  3. Ha ha, I like nice even numbers too. I want some of your trail mix!

  4. I love anything with chunks of brownie or fudge, but honestly, I don't discriminate, I love all ice creams;)
    how did the exam go? what did it cover?

  5. The test sucked, was super hard but we all felt that way. It was over Neuro Physiology and Pathology. Not fun!
