First Day of Fall

It is the first day of Fall today!!  The day started looking dreary but it cleared up and ended up being a beautiful day.  I started my morning at 4:15am….not by choice but because I just couldn’t fall back asleep.  I finally climbed out of bed around 5 and decided to head to the gym.  It was amazing there was not one single person there.   No one by the free weights….

or in the rest of the gym!  It was heaven.

Yes, I am that freak taking pictures of the gym a 5:30 in the morning.  I did a great shoulder workout which I found in Phase 2 of Jamie Eason’s Live Fit.  After that I jumped on the treadmill for an hour and burned 500 calories!

I think that is the most that I have seen on my heart rate monitor.  I did a 20 minute interval workout and then the 45 minute workout I said I would stop doing.  The interval workout I got here from Brittany but modified it a bit by making the walking part 3.8mph.

After a hearty breakfast I decided it’s time to take out the Fall decorations.  I really don’t have much and most of them are hand me downs. Hmmm maybe I could get crafty and make some decorations or centerpieces.  First day of fall also means I can break out the Fall Candles.  The things I get excited about…..

  1. Haha I feel ya on the fall candles. Pumpkin anything is my favorite!

    Glad to hear you liked the workout 🙂

  2. Greetings from ICLW!

    I get SO excited about busting out my fall decorations.. Sadly most of them are Halloween decorations but I think I can pull that off in a few days… I did, however, bust out my fall candles – my house now looks/smells like a catholic church. :/

    • I never realized how hard a walking workout could be. I almost never tried them till running was off limits because of IVF. Now I am addicted and my legs have gotten so much stronger.

  3. I LOVE fall!! And I love an empty gym!! I just finally got my butt in gear yesterday to get back on track with workouts, but I’m doing them from home, as finding a gym open early in the morning here in Spain is TOUGH! But my empty living room was nice, too! 😉

    Happy ICLW!

    • You can just get as good of a workout in your living room! I guess in America we need the 24 hour gyms since we are one of the unhealthiest nations. Haha. I guess that’s not really funny but it makes sense. 🙂
