It is a beautiful day here in Southport, NC with highs near 60, but it will be turning cold Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. This morning I "worked out" my meal plans while on the treadmill (killing two birds with one stone!) and was very happy to find our bonus room was NOT freezing. I want to enjoy the warmth while it lasts!
40-Minute Workout: You can do this workout without any equipment, but if you have a treadmill and a weighted hula-hoop, go get them ready!
If you're on the treadmill: Walk for 40 minutes (about two miles) at 3.5 mph at 4% incline. While walking, do two sets of 20 uppercuts and 20 sets of side-hooks (no lifting weights required!)
If you're outside: Choose an area with low hills. Walk for 40 minutes (about 2 miles) at an average walking pace. While walking, do two sets of 20 uppercuts and 20 sets of side-hooks (no lifting weights required!)
Cool down: 5 minutes hula-hooping.
Alternative cool-down: If you don't have a weighted hula-hoop, you need to get one! :) But until then, just do two minutes of standard sit-ups. Finish with a thirty-second plank.
Today we'll be having tomato-and-avocado sandwiches for lunch, along with a yummy side salad. In the next few days, I plan to prepare chili one night and lasagna one night, two perfect meals for cold winter weather. Stay tuned for my budget-friendly lasagna recipe.
