A 30 Minute Treadmill Interval to Burn off the Sugar!

First, I want to announce the winner of the giveaway!!!!  Sara Miley has won the two necklaces…one for her and one for her to give to a friend!  Sara, could you email me at andreach2@yahoo.com, so I can ship the necklaces to you?

I hope everyone had a fun Halloween yesterday!!!  We had a ton of fun passing out candy, trick-or-treating, and carving pumpkins.  Actually, I should say my husband had a good time carving the pumpkins.  He did an amazing job too!  Each year he goes all out on the pumpkins, and they are so cool.  What amazes me is how he can do it all without a pattern.  The man has artistic talent!


Well, I’m really proud of myself this morning.  I only had one piece of candy and one popcorn ball for Halloween.  I honestly see that as a success for last night.  Usually I’m diving into the candy as I’m passing it out.  Kit-Kats and Butterfingers are my weakness.  This year I just wasn’t in the mood for any of it.  I honestly credit working out so much lately.  It makes your body crave healthier foods.


My son was a different story.  I let him have 4 pieces of candy on top of whatever he had at school earlier in that day for their school party.  As you can see from the picture, he had quite the load!  This morning he had a “sugar/late night trick-or-treating hangover.”  Getting him out of bed and ready for school was a chore!


Thankfully I’m off to the gym to teach and workout this morning, so I know I can burn off that massive popcorn ball I ate (my neighbor makes the best popcorn balls ever).

Here is a 30 minute treadmill interval workout to help you burn off any of that unwanted sugar you may have eaten last night.  This workout will take you on two hills while incorporating some speed-work on the “flats” in-between hills.
