I hit the gym bright and early this morning and took my trusty, treadmill interval workout cheat sheet with me!
This.was.a.doozy! I was SO thirsty (and kind of hungry) and had to take several 1 minute walking breaks to re-hydrate. Other than that, I pretty much followed this outline. Have you given this workout a try? What did you think?
In other news, there was a guy hacking his lungs out on the treadmill next to me the whole time I was working out! Has this ever happened to you? What’s your opinion on working out when you’re sick? I say stay home, please!
At any rate, I was ready to DEVOUR breakfast!! Fat Free Blueberry Cheesecake Yogurt, a Banana & Cashew Cookie Lara Bar.
This flavor of Lara Bar is one of my all-time faves. It tastes JUST like cashews…
Maybe that’s because it’s one of only TWO ingredients in this bar! I challenge you to find another packaged product that has 2 ingredients. I feel so good eating Lara Bars.
What would breakfast be without a little cheesecake?
Looove, love, love this flavor. Do you like flavored yogurts? I find some brands to be a little too sweet, but the AE yogurt brand (it’s local!) really hits it out of the park.
So last week I bought a whole loaf of Healthy Choice 7-Grain Breadat the grocery store, but Ben didn’t end up eating it (he doesn’t like breads that are “seedy”) Since I wasn’t able to eat an entire loaf in a week, I ended up storing what was left in the freezer. Bread stores really well in the freezer and when you want to have a slice or two, all you have to do is wrap them up in a paper towel and microwave for 20 seconds or so. Presto chango – good as new!!
I nuked two slices for today’s lunch, and broke out the almond buttah…
Which is nearing it’s end (sometimes my almond butter gets really thick and chunky near the bottom, so I just microwave it for 30 seconds to get it spreadable.)
And made a good, old-fashioned Almond Butter Sandwich. Seriously – I heart this bread!! The “7 grain-ness” makes it really chewy and crunchy. I really appreciate that texture to jazz up otherwise plain bread!
I paired my sandwich with a Honeycrisp Apple for a real, genuine, all-American meal.
In other news, today is the last day to enter up to three times to win an entire case of Popchips in the Month of Holiday Giveaways! You have until tomorrow at 12pm central time to enter. Get your crunch on!!
It’s Three Question Thursday! I’ve already asked a couple questions in this post, so I’m recapping them here and adding one to boot.
1. What’s your opinion on working out when you’re sick?
2. Do you like flavored yogurt?
3. Do you cry at the movies?
1. I say if you’re contagious, for Heaven’s sake, think of the people around you and stay home!
2. Yep! However – you have to be very careful with flavored yogurts. A certain popular brand of “healthy” Pumpkin Pie Yogurt has 20 GRAMS of sugar in it!! That’s 5 teaspoons of sugar!
3. I’ve gotten sappier with age. If it’s a tearjerker – I’m tearing up for sure.
