My breakfast today was a cinnamon toast pretzel chocolate chip yogurt bowl, and booooy was it tasty!
My most recent order from Netrition.com arrived last night and I couldn’t wait to try the bag of Kay’s Naturals Better Balance cinnamon toast pretzel sticks.
I ate about half the bag before stirring the remaining sticks into my Chobani Greek yogurt and topping the mix with chocolate chips.
I had a hot mug of sugar cookie tea on the side.
It’s probably a good thing that I got an individual portion of those pretzel sticks because I could see myself downing an entire bag very easily.
It’s almost like anything out of a big bag or box makes me want to keep eating and eating. I think that’s why I cannot be trusted around a half-gallon of ice cream or a box of Cheez-its. The remaining portions taunt me until they’re gone.
Since Ryan has the day off work and wasn’t getting up at 5:30 a.m. with me this morning, I opted to skip my typical 5:45 a.m. Friday BodyPump class and save strength training for tomorrow.
Instead, I slept in until 6:30 a.m. and went to the gym for a cardio-only workout consisting of:
- 15 min. adaptive motion trainer
- 10 min. running stairs in the gym’s stairwell
- 10 min. running
- 15 min. elliptical
I got so irritated during my 10 minute run because I ran on a treadmill controlled by a touch screens. If I so much as grazed the screen, the whole workout changed and it would slow down my pace dramatically and hurt my running rhythm. Bleh.
I intended to keep running, but was so fed up when the treadmill reset my entire workout after 10 minutes that I opted to finish my workout on the elliptical. Oooh the headaches of working out.
What bothers you at the gym?
At the risk of sounding like a total brat, I am the most bothered when someone takes “my spot” in BodyPump. It’s my spot, and they should know that. 😉
