Heyyyyy! And yayyyyy for the weekend 😀 I’ve got a Schweaty August Cardio Workout for you in the form of hilly treadmill intervals! If you’re ready for it, scroll down. Otherwise, some things from lately.
I’m pretty sure you could figure it out from last night’s post, but I was dead tired. All I wanted to do was lay on the couch and let my brain and body rest, so cooking was pretty much out of the picture. Since I cooked every night this week, the Pilot offered to pick up some dinner at Renee’s Organic Oven- my fave 😀
Veggies (artichokes, onion, tomato, squash, basil) cooked in marinara with goat cheese + a slice of Udi’s bread
and I have no idea how this gluten-free carrot cake made it into the order.
But I was all over it 😉
He had a boy’s night and went to Sakura with some of the other pilots, while I stayed at home in my jammies, read baby books and watched “How to lose a guy in 10 days” for the twelve thousandth time in my life. I’ve been trying to read Bossypants and can’t get into it.
I loved the first couple of chapters, but am at a point where I’m losing interest. Trying to decide if I want to call it quits and start something new, or make myself finish it.
Bfast this morning was more like a snack, since we have our last ultrasound appointment and will prob grab some bfast after.

We’re off to the doc’s- see ya later today <3
Here’s that Schweaty August Cardio Workout! This one is a combo of rolling hills and speed intervals, to get your booty burning and blast a lot of calories in 30 minutes. As always, check with a doc before making any fitness changes and modify the workout as necessary to suit your fitness level and preferences.
You can use an elliptical, spin bike or treadmill for this one:
[I designed the workout with a treadmill, but if you’re using a spin bike or elliptical use the incline as guidelines of how to increase each minute for the rolling hills, and for sprinting, make sure to have some resistance on there, too]
If you walk, shoot for a quick pace like 4.0mph. Make sure your sprints are as fast as you can go and that steady state at the end should be a pretty quick pace.
At the end, you’ll want to fully cool down, so it’s fine if it takes more than three minutes. Go for as long as you need to!
