Today I’m sharing my workouts and recipes from last week.
My first workout of the week started on the elliptical, moved to the treadmill, and ended on the track. I did 5 minutes on the elliptical for my warm up. I then got on a treadmill and did some speed walking for 30 minutes. I wanted to make sure to get my heart rate up. I’m pretty sure that this was my first time on the treadmill since I started going to this gym a year ago. I was thinking about it while I was on the treadmill and I was pretty surprised. Clearly my favorite form of cardio is the elliptical if it’s taken me a year to get on a treadmill. I spent 5 minutes cooling down on the track to end my workout.
I warmed up on the elliptical and then stayed on it until my cool down 35 minutes later. My workout on Tuesday was steady state cardio. I then did a cool down on the track for 7 minutes. I recently re-downloaded Pokemon Go (I played it a few years ago) and my gym actually has a bunch of Pokemon related stuff at it, so I’ll play it while I’m walking the track during my cool downs.
For my workout on Wednesday, I started out doing my warm up on the elliptical. I then cranked up the intensity and went at it for 30 minutes. I’m not sure what it was exactly, but I was in the zone and ready to work hard. It was probably my toughest workout in awhile, but it definitely didn’t feel like it while I was in the middle of the workout. I then spent 10 minutes cooling down on the track to bring my heart rate back down.
Once again on Thursday, I did my warm up and main part of my workout on the elliptical. I warmed up for 5 minutes and then did some steady state cardio for 35 minutes. I then headed over to the track to walk for 10 minutes for my cool down.
My last workout of the week was once again on the elliptical. I warmed up for 5 minutes before doing some intervals. I did my cool down on the track again (while playing Pokemon Go) for 5 minutes.
I took my second rest day of the week on Saturday. Recently I’ve been on a 10,000 step streak, and I wanted to make sure that I continued it, even if I wasn’t going to be at the gym. Luckily I managed to hit just over 10,000 steps.
This week I made two main recipes for lunches and dinners. The first was Pork and Peanut Dragon Noodles that I had made a couple weeks before. It was so good that I wanted to make it again. I still had some of the ingredients from making it before like the peanuts and noodles, so it was a great recipe to include this week because it was easy on the budget. It turned out delicious again and I have a feeling that it’ll become a staple in my recipe rotation.
The second recipe I made last week was Stir Fry Beef Noodles. I switched up this recipe a bit and used fettuccine instead of the rice noodles because that’s what I had in my pantry. I think it still turned out pretty good, and the flavor was spot on. This is another one that I think I’ll be making on a regular basis.
What was your favorite workout of the past week? Best meal?
