A Speedy 20 Minute Treadmill Interval and Halloween Preparations

How is it already pretty much the end of October?  Where in the world did summer go?  Heck, I think I totally missed fall somewhere in there!  Today I just realized that Halloween is next week, and we don’t even have anything set up for trick-or-treaters!  I’m seriously lacking on my Halloween “pimpin’.”

I’m really going to have to get my butt in gear this weekend in order to have everything together that I want to do and bake/cook for Halloween.  I haven’t even bought pumpkins to carve yet!!  What kind of mother am I?  Plus, I found a ton of great stuff on Pinterest and I’m determined to do each and every one of them.

The main new project I’m looking forward to doing for Halloween (baring a blizzard…they do happen here this time of year) is making the “floating glow balls”.  All you do is fill a large balloon with water and a glow stick.  You then place the balloon in a nylon stocking and hang it from a tree.  How cool is that!?!  The trees that line our front yard are perfect for this!


In the mean time I continue with my daily workouts and goals.  I’ve been really good about sticking to my goals.  This morning my husband made scrambled eggs, and I reheated some of the left over overnight pumpkin pie steel cut oats to go with it.  I’m going to need all the energy I can get from this breakfast, because I’m subbing gym class at my son’s elementary school today.

This evening I’m lifting weights with the Best Body Bootcamp program and doing a quick 20 minute treadmill interval workout (seen below) that I came up with.  If you are looking for a good full body workout try the Freakishly Good Workout today.  It will really tone and tighten those muscles!
