Killer Leg Workout + Chocolate Pumpkin Green Smoothie = A Great Morning!

Monday, September 9, 2013

Hi There Friends!

How was your weekend? Did you do anything exciting? This pretty much sums up our weekend........

We headed home to College Station on Friday night after catching some of the Texas vs. Samford soccer game. We spent most of the day Saturday watching football on TV before heading to the stadium around 3:30pm to watch the Aggies Beat The Hell Out Of Sam Houston. It rained on us the first half of the game but it was so much nicer than the boiling heat we had last week. The Aggies dominated Sam Houston so it was a great game.

We visited with family Sunday morning and then headed back home for grocery and laundry. I was so exhausted and not feeling very well Sunday, so I headed to bed at 8:30pm! Crazy early, but much needed since I had a 4:30am wake up call this morning.

After my 5:30am client it was workout time. I was in a hurry so it was HIIT workout time!! My equipment of choice this morning included the TRX, a kettlebell, and a rowing machine. I completed 4 rounds of the following exercises in about 25 minutes. It was hard but oh so good!

After my workout and a quick shower, it was time for breakfast. Although we are still hitting triple digit temperatures here, I am determined to embrace fall! I went through a huge pumpkin green smoothie phase last fall and I couldn't wait any longer to break the pumpkin back out! It so happened this morning!!
