#ProteinProbs & Cardio Remix

Over the weekend I got a nice little package on my doorstep.  And by little, I mean BIG.  A few months ago, I entered a giveaway hosted by one of my favorite bloggers, Heather over at Housewife Glamour.  I like to think she’s my NBA counterpart in the blogging world…except she’s still actually dancing and has waaaayyyy more followers than me. Wishful thinking, I guess. 😉  Either way, her blog is great and if you haven’t checked it out yet, do it!!!  The giveaway was for a 1 year supply of protein from Designer Whey.  That’s right.  A 1 YEAR supply- worth over $500!  And yours truly was the lucky winner!  Matt said I was like a kid on Christmas morning when the packages arrived in the mail.  I’m not sure if it’s normal to get that excited over protein but I’ll own it. #ProteinProbs  When I think about allll of the protein and protein products I buy over the course of a year (heck, a month!) this was an exciting day for me.


I hope you all have recovered from your candy coma.  Remember that bag of candy I bought for the kiddos? The one I didn’t want leftover?  Matt and I both got home from work too late to even turn our light on.  Fail. And now there are Skittles and M&Ms calling my name every time I walk by the kitchen.  I mean, it wouldn’t be right to let them go to waste, right??  So…on that note, I wanted to share a little cardio “remix” I did this morning. Today was a cardio day for me and I decided I wanted to change things up a bit instead of sticking to my usual running interval routine.  After a 5min warm-up of walking on the treadmill, here’s what my workout looked like. Below I have the treadmill speeds I used but definitely adjust them to your needs!

Cardio Remix

Jog: 6.0

Run: 6.5

Sprint: 8.0

Walk: 4.0

Lunges: 2.0

Side Shuffles: 4.5

**On the side shuffles, I would suggest starting slow and increasing as you get comfortable.  No one wants to be that girl who falls off the treadmill.  And NO that has NOT happened to me…..I swear….

I’ve tried to up my game lately in the weekly food prep department, so keep a lookout for a couple new snack recipes coming your way soon!

  1. Ahhhh YAY! I’m so glad you got this package! And yes, I’m super jealous of the winnings. Thanks for the shout out!

    Also, that workout looks like a good one. I’ll have to give it a go. Enjoy the protein! 😉

  2. I love Heather’s blog (and yours!) I get so bored with cardio sometimes which is why I LOVE going to spin classes so someone can kick my butt for me. Or I love workouts like this that mix it up so I’m not aimlessly running on the treadmill for hours. This sounds awesome… I’ll have to give it a try!

    • Same here! I loove spinning classes but the last two times I went my knee hurt so bad that I couldn’t even get through the warm-up. No idea why, it’s never happened before but now I’m too scared to go back! I hope you enjoy the workout. 🙂

  3. Your welcome to lessen your protein problem burden on me 🙂 Designer Whey stopped selling in Canada and it totally blooooows!
    Awesome workout. Wish I could be running right now but that darn leg won’t heal! Eventually 🙂

    • Ugh, I feel your pain girl! It was torture not being able to run, but the sooner you let it heal the sooner you will be back at it! And that’s a bummer they don’t sell in Canada anymore! If mine becomes too much to handle, I know who to call. 😉

  4. Holy cow!! You are one lucky lady. I’m 100% I would’ve went to bed smiling-slept smiling & woke up smiling over pure excitement. Enjoy!

  5. That is an awesome giveaway to win- you are one lucky lady! It is a cardio day for me and I have been trying to decide what I want to do, but I think I have figured it out! Looks like a good one 🙂

  6. Lol..well I am THAT girl. I’m all THAT girls who’s ipod goes flying away when I stop paying attention. Sometimes I think I should wear a helmet while I’m working out!

    • Glad I’m not the only one! Stepped off the treadmill for a minute and when I stepped back on I forgot it was at a running speed, not walking….won’t do that again! (hopefully) 😉


  1. […] you might already know, I’m pretty pumped about my recent giveaway winnings so of course I had to try out one of the new products asap.  I was in a hurry, so I grabbed a […]
