Ghostly Halloween Circuit Workout

Yesterday was actually the blog's 5 year anniversary. How did that happen? I want to do a post sort of recapping the changes, the ups and downs, the accomplishments and changes I've shared over the years. Looking back? Wow, so much has changed. So much has been shared. But I also wanted to share a Halloween Workout for fun. It has been a bit since I've shared a workout. So I'll save the 5-year post for later.

Last year, I shared my Feeling Jumpy Halloween workout. This year I put together a Halloween Circuit Workout that includes both weights and cardio intervals.

As with all workouts, begin with a 10-minute dynamic warm-up to warm up the body, loosen up muscles and joints.

To complete this Halloween Circuit Workout:

  • Do each of the GHOSTLY weighted exercises for 8-10 reps moving quickly to the next with little rest. 
  • Once you complete the weighted exercises, move to the RIP cardio intervals completing each exercise for 12-16 reps moving quickly to the next exercise with little rest. 
  • Once you have completed the cardio exercises, rest 60 seconds then repeat 2-3 times. 



Video examples:
Goblet Squats
Hammer Curls
Overhand Rows
Shoulder Press
Triceps Kickbacks
Lateral Lunges (R then L)
Y with Band

Reverse Lunges (alternating) weights optional 
Inner Thigh Gate Swing
Plie Jacks

  1. I love this. I am going to be switching gears in the next few weeks. I am planning to head back to the gym to focus more on strength training/rehab, so this is perfect!

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon . The support and words mean so much to me. My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on. I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear. But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well the

Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together. I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog. Banana Nut Biscotti with Banana Glaze If we were to have coffee together ... I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely. Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town wher

KIND Bar Review + Apple Raisin Wheat Berry Salad

Weights & Step As much as I wanted to run today, I knew there was no getting up early enough to do so. Monday's are hard enough without getting up at 5 am to run. Yawn ... So, today I did my weights at lunch then cardio after work. Weights were pull muscles (biceps and back). I did 3 sets of 8 reps of the following: Biceps : Alternating curls Cross-body curls Zottoman curls Back: Single-arm horizontal row Underhand DB rows Double arm rows It was a pretty good workout. I felt pretty strong today for some reason. Love it when that happens. My legs were pretty sore from yesterday's workout, so I opted for a lower intensity cardio: Cathe's Low Impact Circuit - Cardio Only Premix plus abs. It was a great workout and helped to loosen up my legs. KIND Review I have been very remiss with my review of the KIND bars that I won from Jill @ My So Called Health LIfe . I won the Nut Delight. I don't know why, but I expected it to be a tad softer
