There’s a reason why I dont’s usuallybuy Alphabits. Because they’re so delicious, and I could eat the whole box. But I did buy them yesterday, and when Jacob was eating them for breakfast this morning, I just couldn’t help myself.
Luckily, I was able to stick to the one cup serving size with a little bit of unsweetened almond milk. And I figured at least I’d burn them off during BodyPump. I read somewhere that it’s better to indulge in a treat earlier in the day rather than later in the day so you have time to burn it off. Who knows? I like treats all the time.
Jaden had smiley face pancakes for breakfast this morning.
- Treadmill – 15 minutes
- BodyPump – 60 minutes
- Elliptical – 20 minutes
I did a little bit more cardio than normal this morning because Jacob has a curriculum night at school tonight, so I will be missing my Biggest Loser workout. Originally, Danny was going to go to the curriculum night so that I could go to the nutrition class and 5k prep, but it’s supposed to storm here all afternoon, so I’m not sure if they’re even going to have the 5k prep. Plus, I figured that the curriculum night was more important.
I planned on doing a little bit longer on the elliptical today but the park district is having the gym floors redone, so the whole fitness center smelled like fumes, which was making me woozy. So, then they opened all the doors in the building to help with the fume smell, but it’s hot here today, so the gym started to get humid. I just gave up and left.
I went shopping instead. (I think Danny dreads those words).
I have been waiting for the fall scented candles to come in at Bath and Body Works. Even though it’s 90 degree weather here, I like to pretend that it’s fall weather so I can buy fall-scented candles.
I had such a hard time choosing two of the medium size candles, so I just bought two mini candles also. Luckily, they were all on sale, and I had a coupon. I love all things autumn related. Fall smelling candles, soaps, cooler weather, pumpkins, apples, crunchy leaves, hot cocoa…
Post workout I had an Atkin’s cranberry almond bar. These bars are delicious and have 10 grams of protein!
Living Social has $10 Starbucks e-cards for only $5 today! You better believe that I bought one of those. Great deal!
Questions of the day:
