Burn Baby Burn

Like I expected, BURN kicked my butt (in a good way)!! The trainer pushed us hard while we worked between running on the treadmill and strength training circuits on the floor. On the treadmill, we frequently changed speeds and inclines for interval training-- at one point, I was running at 9.2 mph on the treadmill, which was a first for me! For the strength training portion, we did a mix of free weights and core/stabilization exercises. By the end of the 50-minute workout, I was pooped and absolutely drenched in sweat! BURN is SUCH a great workout! I'm positive that I will be taking another class very soon! 

When I arrived home, dinner was already made and waiting for me. (Best husband ever!) Mal cooked homemade pizza with green peppers, onions, mozzarella, and sliced deli ham. Delish! 


I also made myself a side salad with romaine, grape tomatoes, carrots, green peppers, and Claire's relish. Lots-o-volume. 


From above...


Sorry that I am short-winded tonight. BURN was tough! I'm looking forward to my bed, an episode of the Hills, and sleeping in tomorrow. I need a little break from super early mornings. 

Sleep well, blog land!

Sweet of Mal to make you dinner - and your side salad is beautiful - and looks delicious. I'd not have thought of adding relish to a salad.
Wow on the BURN class - the mix of cardio and strength especially.... I love the feeling of that "good exhausted" and sweaty feeling after a workout.

sportsnutritionliving,

I vote oatmeal raisin bars! I made these for an office party, and people went nuts over them! :)

Andrea,

Yep, it did. It was actually a huge piece! I didn't even have room for dessert like I usually do!

Bridget said...
