I was somewhat short on time today, so my workout wasn't thoroughly thought-out. Anyway, here's what I did:

20 minutes on the stairclimber at 60 steps/minute. Last 2 minutes bumped up to 75 steps/min.
50 crunches forward
50 crunches left
50 crunches right
25 crunches forward
25 crunches left
25 crunches right
Plank 1:20
Plank 1:30
Plank: 1:02

That's it! Very busy day today, so I'm glad I made sure to get some exercise in.

Breakfast: Green smoothie with Vega WFHO
Lunch: Daiya quesadilla and an orange
Post-workout: Vega Acai energy bar
Snack: Banana
Dinner: Chana Masala, rice, and spinach

Nice! Way to squeeze it in even though you were busy!

I'm heading to the gym now :)

Have a great one!

Relaxing music, eh? I rarely listen to anything relaxing when I need to keep motivated. I'll give it a shot.

Great job on the run!

Thanks, guys!

Yeah, I know it might seem weird, but the more gentler music was really a great change of pace, and at least that particular day, was just what I needed!

I was out of town for a couple of days this week, and wasn't able to get in any fitness. But, yesterday I did a 3 mile run/walk with a friend. My diet pretty much went out the window yesterday, though, so I'll try to stay more focused today.

Have a great weekend, everyone!!! :D

Have an awesome weekend!

Keep the windows closed next time. I find that helps. I hate when I lose my lunch.

;)

That ab workout sounds painful! Good for you doing the plank...I can never get myself to do it, I just dislike it too much lol

When we've trained together, Karen has out-plank'd me. And I'm getting better at it :)

Karen, have an awesome week! Hope you're settling in well and things slow down for you and you get to ease into a routine again.

Texas-sized hugs from the Lone Star State!

Here you go, Karen! :) They're really delicious and gooey, I had my first one yesterday :)

Ingredients:

4 oz. unsweetened dark chocolate, chopped
½ cup raspberry fruit spread
½ cup sugar or other dry sweetener (see note)
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
½ tsp. almond extract
1½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup frozen raspberries

Directions:

1.Preheat oven to 350F; line an 8" pan with parchment paper; lightly mist with non-stick cooking spray.
2.Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave; set aside.
3.In large mixing bowl, vigorously mix together jam, sweetener, and applesauce; stir in extracts and melted chocolate.
4.Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt, then combine with wet ingredients; mix very well until a stiff dough forms, then fold in raspberries.
5.Spread mixture into prepared pan. Note: It will be very thick; use your hands to evenly spread.
6. Bake 16-18 minutes. Note: They should still be soft and gooey; be careful not to over bake (if tester toothpick comes out clean, they’re over baked).
7.Remove from oven and let cool completely before slicing into 16 pieces. Hint: These taste especially good and fudgy after being refrigerated for a few hours.

Nice running, FWIW I always like to run with mellow music. I run to relax so I like my music to enhance that experience.

Keep up the great work and hope you have a great weekend. Sorry I never came across your journal up until now, I'll try and check in when I can. Feel free to give me a yell on anything to do with running, I'm a marathoner, ultramarathoner and everything else in between hehe.
