Just an OK kind of day

Yesterday was not too very exciting in terms of good eats. Or in terms of exercise for that matter. :(

I ended up eating lunch on campus for a lunch meeting. It was just a sandwich and salad, but it made me feel really awful. I felt bloated and had my tummy issues all day long.

I also didn't exercise yesterday. I ended up blogging my exercise time away and ran out of time. :( I planned on doing it when I got home, but I got home an hour later than usual and ended up just veggin' out.

I'm trying to not be too hard on myself. I'm hoping I'm tired because I'm still getting into the groove of working longer hours and waking up early. Who knows.

Anyway, I have exactly a 1/2 hour to exercise in the morning and I need to burn optimal calories during that time. I do my run/walk 3 days a week. I need something else to do on the off days.

I have a series of strength training exercises I can do, but I would also like to implement some cardio. Anyone have any suggestions? Any cardio/strength training videos that are only a 1/2 hour?

Well, wish me luck today. I'm going out to lunch for my coworker's birthday. Sometimes I wish we lived in a society where we didn't celebrate with food.

  1. I think a change in schedule can be very tiring... Yes, don't be so hard on yourself! :)

    I hope you had a good time with your friend.

    As far as a quick routine that has both strength moves and cardio, I like The 30 Day Shred. It takes about 25 minutes (including warm-up and cool down), and I always feel I'm getting a great workout in a short amount of time.
