Cardio Hodgepodge and a Bowl of Pumpkin Fun

Before going to bed last night I planned on going to my normal Thursday spinning class when I woke up in the morning.

When the alarm went off, I just wasn’t feelin’ it. I love the instructor who teaches spinning at my gym on Thursday, but I was not in the mood to spend 45 minutes on a bike.

What workout do you do when you’re just not in the mood?

A mindset like mine called for a cardio hodgepodge workout! My random cardio workout ended up like this:

  • 10 min. stair master
  • 10 min. run
  • 10 min. incline walking
  • 20 min. elliptical

This workout made me sweat and kept me entertained (as did the Cooking Light I read while on the elliptical).


Breakfast this morning was oh-so-filling. I prepared a bowl of Flax Z Snax butter pecan hot cereal and added 1/4 cup of pumpkin, sweetener and a handful of South Beach Living chocolate-covered soy nuts.

Lovin' That Chocolate!

My belly is full of warm pumpkiny tastiness.
