Elliptical Butt Blaster

Gotta make this quick, my to-do list is overflowing!

I woke up bright and early to get a workout in before the day gets busy. One of my favorite things about morning workouts (besides starting the day off on an awesome foot!) is how peaceful it is. I would almost never be doing homework at 8:00am, so I don’t feel guilty that I’m working out instead of studying 🙂

I had a treadmill run/walk scheduled for today, but I opted for the elliptical instead. I also have arms scheduled in, which I plan to do later when I watch TV. No stairmaster workout for me this week; as I suspected on Sunday, it’s officially out of order!

Before I left for the gym, I snacked on a banana. I need a little fuel to power me through my workouts!

For me, this workout burned about 315 calories.

On the way home, I could taste fresh coffee and an egg and cheese sandwich. Naturally, that’s exactly what I made when I got back to the apartment!

Mmm…just drippy enough, with melty cheese, butter, and a fresh tomato slice 🙂 Perfection!
