It is seriously cold out today so I decided to take my running indoors. I run about 30 miles a week and more often than not all of that is outside. I loathe the treadmill, we do not get along at all. I got to the gym today and whipped out a really quick mile on the treadmill (8:22!) and then went to an Absolutely Abs class that wasn’t very impressive, the teacher wasn’t very clear and gave no explanations to what we were doing. But 15 mins of abs is 15 mins of abs, I just did my own thing for most of the class. Afterwards I was faced with getting back on the treadmill and I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I looked upstairs, UA has a track that runs around the second floor and decided to see if I could play hamster for a few laps. 10 laps equals a mile and I managed to do 30! I made a game out of it. The 1st and 5th lap of every 10 I ran balls to the walls, all out, every 10th lap I did something special, the first mile I ran the 10th lap backwards, I did the 20th lap skipping and the 30th lap I did walking lunges. All of a sudden I had completed 3 miles in 28 mins, which considering I lunged one of those laps and ran another backwards is pretty stellar. I felt totally whipped when I was done and think I will make Tuesday Track workouts a weekly staple.
I picked up Harper from daycare and the lady told me she thought Harper was wet. I didn’t have any diapers on me so I headed out to the car and changed her in the seat. Well once I got her down and the diaper off I realized too late that she wasn’t wet, she had an ass explosion. There was orange oatmeal poop everywhere and of course I hadn’t put a blanket down, and of course it had come out of her diaper and was up her back. I got my dipe wipes out and only had like 3 left. Ack. So by the time I was done I had used all the wipes and the outfit she had on was covered in poop and there were poopy oatmeal flakes getting on my car seats. Good times. I finally got her into her reserve outfit (which was a size too small!) and was on my way home. I looked down only to realize that I had poop all over my hand. I had no napkins so I just drove home with it hanging out on my fingers. Good times. Note to self: restock diaper bag. When we got home Harper went straight into the bath!
Speaking of poop, lets talk fiber shall we! The nice people over at GNU foods sent me over some complimentary GNU bars to try out. I was able to try each flavor. I think most people who are conscious of their diets are always looking for ways to sneak in more fiber and these bars totally fit the bill.
I had actually had the Cranberry Orange flavor before and really liked it. Out of the various flavors they sent me I think that I can easily say the Lemon Ginger is my favorite. It is the perfect combo of ginger and lemon, two of my favorite tastes. I really liked the banana walnut one too. The chocolate flavors were okay, but not my favorite. I will definately be stocking up on the orange, lemon and banana ones. You can order a 5 flavor sampler on their site for only $9.95. Not bad. According to their site, one of their bars is equivalent to 4 glasses of metamucil, gee whiz! Here are some more facts from their website:
Would you like to try one? I have some left to giveaway to you guys. Leave me a comment of what flavor you want and I’ll use random.org to pick 2 winners on Friday morning.
