Interval Workout Video

I filmed an interval training workout video this afternoon...more about that in a sec...but first, a rundown of my day.

I got back home to Toronto after a nice flight with Porter Airlines. Read the book, "Peak" by Chip Conley. Great for biz owners. Immediately upon getting home I had this awesome blender drink:

1 frozen banana, frozen raspberries & blueberries, frozen spinach, almond milk, peanut butter, walnuts, and cacao nibs.

(Much better option than the sugary yogurt and muffin offered on the plane.)

Oh, and for anyone new to my blog, trust me, you can NOT taste the spinach!

And last night for dinner I went to the Stirling Hotel in Stirling, NJ, with Jen and Jay. We each had the black bean burgers...very good. I also had the Stirling Hotel salad of: greens, strawberries, walnuts, feta cheese, onions, and apple slices.

Today's training resources:

1) TT folks are loving this advanced workout:

2) The under-rated AAA Abs workout

And today's kick-butt mindset quotes:

1) If you need courage...

"Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage."

2) Great insight for dealing with people and dogs:

"You get what you reward."
Bob Nelson

Give the right rewards for the right actions,


PS - One more quote:

And my favorite quote of the day...

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."

Hey Craig,
What type of blender do you use? Do you have to use a high powered one to get the spinach in there?

Rob, just a regular $70 blender. Spinach doesn't take much...i make sure not to put in a lot of almonds though. I've heard that is hard on them.
