Cabbage Patch Kids

I woke up this morning and my left nostril was clogged, my throat was dry and my eyes had boogers in them.  I will NOT get sick!  My body is trying to fight.  I need to remember my glutamine.  I swear that’s why has kept me healthy for the past 3 years.  I didn’t let this “sick” keep me in bed.  I got up and busted out a GREAT 60 mins cardio session.

mins 0-5   3.5

mins 5-10 4.0 

1 min 6.0

30 secs 7.0

1 min 6.0

30 secs 4.0 

Repeat 5 times

Then I added this workout:

Time (mins)/ Incline/ Speed
0-1 / 3% / 3.6
1-2 / 4% / 3.6
2-3 / 5% / 3.6
3-4 / 6% / 3.6
4-5 / 7% / 3.6
5-6 / 1% / 6.0
6-7 / 1% / 6.1
7-8 / 0% / 6.2
8-9 / 0% / 6.3
9-10 / 0% /6.4
10-11 / 4% / 3.8
11-12 / 5% / 3.8
12-13 / 6% / 3.8
13-14 / 7% / 3.8
14-15 / 8% / 3.8
15-16 / 0% / 6.1
16-17 / 0% / 6.2
17-18 / 0% / 6.3
18-19 / 0% / 6.4
19-20 / 0% / 7.0
20-21 / 5% / 3.8
21-22 / 6% / 3.8
22-23 / 7% / 3.7
23-24 / 8% / 3.7
24-25 / 9% / 3.7 – did this for 2 mins
25-26 / 0% / 6.2
26-27 / 0% / 6.3
27-28 / 0% / 6.4
28-29 / 0% / 6.5
29-30 / 0% / 7.5
30-33 / 0% / 3.5 cooldown

I did a 5 min cooldown until 60 mins hit.  If I do this again I will add another 6,7,6,4 segment.

Moral of the story.  You NEVER regret a workout.  You only regret NOT working out.  Unless of course you need a rest day or you are really sick 😉


Yesterday I spent most of the day organizing and taking off wallpaper.  Fun stuff.  I also made an incredible dinner for myself.  Mike had grilled chicken with cheesy rice and broccoli.  I had this:

I'm still LOVING my Rachael Ray cookware

I put poppyseeds in it and of course mustard and stevia 😀

  • shrimp
  • cabbage
  • mixed veggies

Easy Peasy!  I put the shrimp in the pan and fried in Pam for a bit then added the veggies and slaw.  I fried all of that until it started turning brown.  I’ve found cabbage really FILLS me up.  *I seriously put feels again at first*


Saturday I had a bi/tri/ab workout and I just didn’t feel like doing it.  I really HATE working my biceps.  I don’t know why?  So I popped in Cathe’s Slow and Heavy DVD and did the bi/tri workout and my arms are SO sore!  I love it!  I think it’s good to shake things up ever now and then.  I may actually add the shoulders workout onto mine today.



Do you remember when you use to wake up and just run out the door?   I thought of that this morning when I looked in the mirror.  My eyes looked like I hadn’t slept in years and my bangs were so static infested they were sticking straight up.  Man, getting old sucks sometimes.


I love seeing all the bicep pictures around!

    That looks really good. I made cabbage last night and I agree, it’s a good filler upper! I love seeing what others are eating, it gives me ideas. I like to keep it mixed up so I don’t get bored eating the same ol thing.

  2. Wow! Great looking workout. I may end up trying something like this soon. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Dang girl!! You’ve got me beat on your guns! But I already knew that. LOL

    So true about the working out…I really thinking starting a workout is 80% of it.

    I’m trying that incline workout!! All of the workouts you post and link to are helping me become a faster runner!

    • intheskinny

      Duh. I meant think.

    • I read it as think 😉 You’re right, starting it the best thing. Then you go longer because you’re already there.

      I’m glad you like the workouts! I try and find ones that are “doable”. I’m not a runner by any means.

    You’re so freakin’ cute, I wanna scream! That recipe looks DEEEE-LISH!!!! MUST try it.

  15. Holy cow, nice arms!! I don’t love working biceps, but I like it enough. I love working triceps!!
