30 minute full-body strength training circuit

Good morning and Happy Saturday! I was up bright and early this morning, 6:30am. I have a hard time sleeping in on the weekend when I get up at 4:30am during the weekday. Am I crazy? Please tell me I’m not alone.

Anyone have fun plans scheduled this weekend? It is supposed to be beautiful in Richmond this weekend, in the 60’s and sunny!, so you will likely find me outside enjoying a warm-ish run today and a nice relaxing walk tomorrow. Other than that, Nick & I are going to a Sur La Table cooking class this evening. We received a gift certificate for a cooking class as a Christmas gift, and after reading about Gina & Brittany’s experience at Sur La Table, I am incredibly excited for our class this evening.

Weekend Happenings + I’m a Sweat Pink Ambassador

Now, let’s get to the good stuff. When I accepted my new job a little over a year and a half ago in Virginia, I started to play around with the times I would workout. In my past positions, I didn’t have a lot of flexibility. Working 2p-midnight –> um, I’ll work out before I go into work, thank you very much and working 6a-4p –> only option was a 4am workout or after work.

My workouts were sporadic at best those 3 years. Fast forward to my new position and an average day is 8-6. I tried working out after work, but most days I was just too tired or unmotivated.

My workouts were blah, and if I had to work past 6 (o the life of facilities management), I would stress over when I got my workout in. So, for the past year and a half I’ve been getting up at 4:40am to get in my workout. Sure, some days it is harder to get out of bed than others, but Nick and I are fortunate that our schedules match up right now, and we both get in our workout at the same time. Having him next to me getting out of bed makes it a lot easier to get up and put my big girl pants on.

10 Healthy and Portable Snacks for Road Trips

Ok Alex, where the heck are you going with all of this? Glad you asked! Over the past year and a half, my workouts have become much more streamlined and efficient with the time I have available. There is absolutely no reason to spend over an hour in a gym unless you are training for a specific event or an athlete.

These days, I spend no more than 50 minutes in the gym, 10 minutes cardio warmup and 30-35 strength-training, and I still see results I am proud of. With such limited time, I head to the gym with a plan (usually workouts Nick puts together!). We also do a fair amount of supersetting to get the most bang for our buck with our time.

What is supersetting? Supersetting is performing 2 exercises, one right after the other, with no rest in between. It is considered a more advanced style of lifting that can produce significant results by increasing your workout intensity.

Want to try supersetting yourself? Here is the lower body superset workout I did this morning that really got my legs b.u.r.n.i.n.g!

Lower body superset workout + It’s been too long

I talked about supersets briefly on Wednesday, and you could think of this workout as one large superset. The difference between the two workouts is that on Wednesday, we were supersetting exercises that targeted the same general muscles to provide more of an overload and fatigue more quickly. With this workout, your legs will be actively recovering from the leg press while you perform your row. It gives your lower body a chance to rest without decreasing your heart rate since you are performing an upper body movement. Lower body exercises are in green, upper body are in blue and low-back/core/cardio are in purple.

The result was a beautiful looking frittata that people actually raved about! I wasn’t able to try it because it had half & half and cheese in it, but with after seeing how easy it was to make and more than one compliment, I knew I wanted to try and make a dairy-free frittata once we got home. I love the frittata as a quick option if you are low on time in the morning and need to grab something and go as well as a nice variation on the typical over-easy or scrambled egg. If you are looking for a dairy-free, vegetable frittata, here is the recipe for the one I made this morning. Let me know what you think if you try it!

Healthy travel tips for your next road trip

Although we had a whirlwind travel schedule all over PA the past two weeks, one gathering really sticks out in my mind. This year was our 3rd year hosting a Christmas Day brunch for our families in Pittsburgh. Our families get along beautifully, and it is really cool to see…Considering we are about to tie the knot soon This year we had 14 people for brunch, and it is easily becoming one of my favorite annual traditions!

Each year the menu varies slightly, and this year was all about simplicity! We didn’t have much time to grocery shop and prep before Christmas morning so I needed 2 dishes that were easy to prep and didn’t require me standing over the oven or stove. This blueberry maple baked oatmeal was a no-brainer, but I was on the hunt for an easy egg dish that was slightly more sophisticated than scrambled eggs.

The result was a beautiful looking frittata that people actually raved about! I wasn’t able to try it because it had half & half and cheese in it, but with after seeing how easy it was to make and more than one compliment, I knew I wanted to try and make a dairy-free frittata once we got home.
