Reason # 1,262,626 to go to the gym: the heat is on there!!!
I feel guilty for not biking today since the sun was up, but I was really, really cold in a 60* house before I left and just couldn’t handle it! At the gym I did a nice 45 minutes on the ET followed by about 20 minutes of lifting, abs, etc.
Home + shower = ready for lunch!
The husband burst through the door right at 12 with some goodies from Great Harvest – Honey Wheat bread (which I think tastes like a donut!) and focaccia. We both had bites of each on the spot.
For lunch I had a plate of birthday leftovers! A small piece of trout, a few sweet potatoes (plus a few butternut cubes from the party) and kale. Plus grapes!
And some bread crackers with a touch of whipped butter –
For dessert I broke into this Crispy Cat “healthy” candy bar we’ve had for a while. This guy is really just as high in calories and all as a Snickers but made with more natural ingredients. It tasted more like a health bar to me (Luna, Clif) than a candy bar so I don’t think I’d ever choose to eat this again.
My volume of food wasn’t that much and I’m still feeling kinda hungry 🙁 I know I got enough to eat from the food groups and all, so that’s my cue I probably just ate too fast and need to calm my mind down so it can digest.
Smoothie King has a new smoothie – the Berry Stimulating Maté – and they would like to share the love! The smoothie is made with blackberry, strawberry, blueberry, Guayaki organic yerba maté, turbinado and nonfat milk. (Ask for it “Skinny” to leave out the sugar). Yerba maté is a holly bush that comes from the South American rainforests. It contains xanthines, stimulants in the caffeine family that are thought to be gentler on the digestive tract, along with potassium, magnesium and manganese. (Wikipedia has lots more details).
So Smoothie King has 10 coupon packs (5 coupons each!) to share with you guys so you can take a bunch of your friends in for free smoothies. To enter just leave a comment (perhaps listing your favorite smoothie -store bought or homemade for fun!?) by 5:00pm and I’ll randomly choose the 10 winners at tonight’s dinner post.
I’ll start: my favorite smoothie remains Smoothie King’s Mangosteen Madness! 8)
I’m off to class, then I need to get my butt STUDYING!!!!!!!
