My New October Workout + Playlist

Hey everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t been posting– school is crazy!

My new workout is pretty simple.

First I drink a pre-workout mix that tastes like lemonade by Beachbody, and I buy it here! 

Then I go on the elliptical for 20 minutes, switching the resistance from 1-5 and the elevation from 1-10 when needed. I always end on 1 and 1. This works the heck out of my legs and butt.

After that I do what I call “floor workouts”, and I focus on my abs. I use a Kama Fitness flat abs workout. I have it saved as a photo on my cell phone and look at it while I work out.

My “Mom Cardio” Workout (+Podcasts to Listen to While Working out) 

Since I’ve been so busy lately, I’ve been gaining some weight due to my fluctuating eating habits and lack of time to spend at the gym. 

So, I’ve come up with a simple as heck workout that gets me sweating and doesn’t bore me to death. My friend Amanda and I hit the gym when we have time and do our “Mom Cardio” workout. 

I love listening to Podcasts while I workout on the elliptical because it keeps me from getting bored. My favorite one to listen to right now is The Myths and Legends Podcast by Jason Wieser. Another one that I’ve listened to for hours at work is TED Radio Hour. I use the iTunes Podcasts app!  

What I do for my basic, non-boring workout is: 

  1. 20 minutes on the elliptical listening to Podcasts  
  2. Stretches (every stretch I know)

I work out with my best friend and we have a routine. We ignore each other on the elliptical while we listen to music/podcasts, and chat while we stretch. This is a really flexible workout- so make it your own! Also, make sure you bring water! You’ll sweat like crazy on the elliptical. 

I have to give Amanda credit for the term “Mom Cardio”. She’s so funny!
