3 Set Circuit Workout

Hi friends!  1 more day till the 4th of July!

This morning started with a half mile run to the gym and then the 3 set circuit workout below.  The workout took about 20-25 minutes and then I ran a mile home.  It’s a great, fast workout!  My legs were sore today so I didn’t include too much cardio but you can always do the elliptical, bike, or run more if you want a harder or longer workout.

Dinner

Last night was a perfect night for grilling on the roof deck.  It was really hot and humid all day but cooled down by the time we ate dinner.

Mike and I were craving something healthy for dinner so we made steak tips, sweet potato wedges, and a side salad.  We combined the steak with extra virgin olive oil, water, a little McCormick “Perfect Pinch” steak seasoning, cider vineger and salt and pepper and marinated it in a plastic ziploc bag for 3 hours.  The steak tips were so tender and delicious!  We sometimes over season our steak and it tastes too salty but this dinner had a perfect amount of seasoning :) 

I ended the night with a mug full of Yogi brand sleepy tea.  It tasted a little funky so I’m thinking I’ll add honey next time. 

Question: Have you guys tried bedtime tea?  What brands are good?

  1. I use the sleeptime tea too! It definitely has a funky taste to it! I think the brand I use is Celestial? Is that a real brand or did I just make that up?…It has a bear in a rocking chair on the box! lol, hope you got a good nights rest!

  2. Do you add honey or lemon to make it better? I think it worked last night but I’ll have to try it again to make sure….. I’ll keep you posted!
