40-Minute Elliptical Sesh

14 Nov

Happy hump day! And Workout Wednesday!

BLAST this morning was awesome! The workout is pretty tough this time around but all of the participants rocked it out and finished strong :). They all seem to like the AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) sections of the workout. I put 2 in; one with burpees and speed skaters in 6 minutes and one with strength exercises (bent-over rows, biceps curls, single-arm shoulder presses, triceps kickbacks) in 8 minutes. Every week, they try to beat their score from the previous week-a great motivator!

This weeks workout is all about the elliptical; I prefer ellipticals with a crossramp, moving handlebars, and tons of programs (a built-in fan helps too). Also, one that gives you the freedom of pedaling both forwards and backwards is preferred too. There are so many workouts you can do with the elliptical!

I’m heading home for an early Thanksgiving break this weekend! Cannot WAIT to spend some quality time with my fam; it’s been way too long :/. Oh, the joys of growing up..

My mother and I will be cooking up a storm all day Saturday; turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes (orange candy basically), veggies, wine, and-of course- dessert! I’m not sure what’s been going on lately but I’ve been craving carrot cake..like mad cravings.

If I make it look like this..it cancels out the bad stuff..right?
