Workout Wednesday

This was the first time in almost a week that I could get a decently long workout in.  My gym has been packed that as so as soon as I get in there, I just want to leave.  I finally got a chance to get a yoga mat to do some floor work so I thought I'd try some new workouts out. I did my usual stretching, planks and sit ups but I thought I would try plank toe taps and plank hip twists.  

Plank toe taps
-Get into plank/push up position
-Bring the right leg up and tap by your hand. (Like you're trying to knee your elbow)
-Do the left the same way and keep switching
-Keep doing for 60 counts

Plank hip twists
-Stay in plank/push up position
-Twist and place right hip towards the ground
-Go back to plank/push up position
-Twist and place right hip towards the ground
-Keep doing for 30 counts

Once I finished floor work, I moved onto the elliptical.  I absolutely hate running on the treadmill because I run at different paces so I just do a hard few miles on the elliptical. 3.5 miles later I was finished and moved onto arms. I only used 15lb weights on both sides of my arms because I do more reps/counts that way and still feel a workout.  It still equaled 30lbs. 

I will be working all this weekend until next weekend because most of my work weeks are 15-23 days long as opposed to 5 days so I probably won't make it to the gym as much as I would like, but I will still be posting my running miles through out the week and my workouts from in the evenings. 

Here's today's healthy breakfast! This is what I normally eat in the office in the mornings because I don't have a microwave or refrigerator and I refuse to eat potato chips all day. Plus, this cuts down on sugar and sodium all day! I love protein in the morning! 
What's your favorite healthy breakfast food?
