Don’t forget to check in with the challenge! I woke up wondering what the heck happened to me and then said, “Oh yeah, NROLW and the matrix”. Owie!!! I was super hungry and munched on a snack while I decided what to do.
I decided that I felt okay enough to try a brick for duathlon training. It was a reverse from triathlon training, since the duathlon is run/bike/run. So I did a 2 mile jog first. My legs were complaining a bit at first, but after I warmed up they felt okay. I was going slower for sure. Then I jumped on my bike and did a 9 mile ride. It definitely felt different than doing bike/run. I have never gotten on the bike *after* running. I am not exactly sure how much of what I felt was the result of lifting yesterday versus the new order. It was definitely easier than going to running after biking, but I didn’t have a lot of push for hills. In fact, I kept the gear much lower than I normally ride in because it felt better.
Sign of fall – the Virginia Creeper is starting to turn!
Came back to my patented oats and blueberry sauce. Oats instead of oat bran today.
I tried a new brand – Silver Palate, since I had a BOGO coupon. I really like these – they have more oaty flavor, plus nice and chewy. It’s a bit of a thicker cut of oatmeal.
Am I the only one that truly dislikes Biggest Loser? I have barely watched even a snippet of it, but the whole thing just bugs the crap out of me. I don’t like number competitions and the booting of people off who don’t lose the most. That just isn’t constructive, you know? These people lose incredible amounts of weight at each weigh in and seem so disappointed! Not to mention having a trainer in your face berating you when exercise is supposed to be enjoyable and something you will want to continue with forever. They sure don’t make it look like any fun. Maybe this is why the majority of the contestants gain weight back after the show. And does this really inspire everyday people to lose weight in a healthy manner? I ask this seriously and I hope someone will comment that it has helped them. I just think a lot of people imitate what they see on TBL and then quit because it is too intense and not enjoyable to keep up.
It’s called reality TV. However, it is anything but reality.
I tried something fun for lunch – adding PB2 to plain yogurt. It was really good! Made the yogurt really thick, though – check it out! Spackle anyone?
I added some cereal on top of this for crunch. Will definitely be doing this again 😀
Had a latte and Special K bar for an afternoon snack.
I was really hungry. I can’t quite get bars out of my life, even though I would like to. What I need to do is make more of my own. It’s not like I haven’t done that before LOL! I’m just lazy…..
Omelets for dinner! With feta cheese. I so love feta cheese in egg dishes (or on pizza). This was 1 egg with 2 servings of liquid egg white – makes good volume and protein for lower calories!
You can really tell fall is coming. Once the sun starts to set, it gets pretty brisk. We took the scooter out to Starbucks tonight – dang that was cold! Had to warm up with a yummy latte (it was decaf 😀 )
Have a great night! I am going to try my hand at a Wordless Wednesday tomorrow. Should be fun!
