We’re rollin’ 3-2-1 style this evening!

Starting with the 3-2-1 Treadmill Workout I completed after work. You take 6 minute segments and break them up into 3 minute, 2 minute and 1 minute intervals, increasing the speed as you go!

Time Speed
0:00-5:00 4.0
5:00-8:00 6.0
8:00-10:00 6.5
10:00-11:00 7.0
11:00-35:00 Repeat minutes 5-11 four more times
35:00-40:00 4.0
Total: 3.8 miles

Um, why have I not thought of this before? What a great workout, that seriously went by in a flash! I had no chance of getting bored because every time I looked down, it was time to switch it up to a different speed. Next time I think I might start my 3 minute interval at 6.5, because I felt like I could keep doing the 6 minute segments forever. Which, is good, but I like to really challenge myself on the treadmill. :)

Dinner is following a similar 3-2-1 pattern, starting with dessert (the best course, clearly.) We’ve got 3 Thin Mints! I’m attempting to hold off on eating these until it least 8:00. If I scarf them too early, I’ll want more later. That just won’t fly, people!


Next, we’ve got 2 pieces of Parmesan Garlic Bread!


My Mom made parmesan garlic bread alllll the time growing up, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. :) For my rendition, I took an EarthGrains Whole Wheat Thin Bun,


and topped it with this cast of characters: butter, garlic powder & parmesan cheese.


(I may have gotten a bit aggressive with the garlic powder…)


Broiled to crunchy, savory perfection. UGH I LOVE PARMESAN GARLIC BREAD!


I could seriously eat 20 thin buns worth! :D


Ok, we’ve covered 3, we’ve covered 2, now for 1: a bowl of Italian Wedding Soup! 


I whipped up a batch of my favorite soup yesterday in, honest to goodness, 15 minutes. The only cooking you have to do is to sauté the onions and garlic. The spinach and meatballs heat up while you’re boiling the pasta in the broth!
