It was! I was so hungry in the morning, if you’ll remember I had bran flakes AND shakeology at around 8:30. Then I felt no need for a mid-morning snack (probably because I ate b-fast so late!) and went to lunch at noon (and wasn’t all that hungry then). I had fries and a roasted veggie pita. I would normally have an afternoon snack of something protein-y to ready myself for a workout — I wasn’t feeling hungry at all. I actually started to wonder if my body was preparing itself for this 12-hour stomach bug that has been going around school. So around 5:30 I ate a Ginger Snap LaraBar (I had to try one after reading THIS). It was seriously awesome! Here are the pictures of it:
Here is what I loved about this bar: There are 5 ingredients (all of which I have heard of and can pronounce), this has no added sugar, 6 grams of fiber, it’s sodium free, and it counts as 1/2 a serving of fruit!
When I opened it and took a bite I could see the delicious almonds and pecans that were in it! I could really taste the ginger, and the dates were delectable and sweet!
So here is why last night was weird:
About an hour after I ate this I was ready to workout — it was around 6:30. I am notoriously bad about getting ready to workout — it takes me forever to get my act together. I had planned on going my big gym, that I have to drive to, so I wouldn’t have to treadmill it up. I walked outside to go to the car and BOOM, snowstorm! The car was covered, the road was slick, and snow was blowing everywhere!
I re-vamped my plans and walked to our complex gym. Once there I realized that none of the treadmills were working, nor was the stairclimber or the TVs.
Dear Apartment People,
If you are going to have a gym, please make sure there are re-inforced electrical outlets so that the fuse doesn’t blow when more than one person is working out.
I did my workout on the elliptical. 1 Mile warm up, 2 miles with 6×1:00 intervals, 1 mile cool down. I did not care for the elliptical.
Anyway, I got home and wasn’t hungry (I’m never hungry right after I workout). I waited for the workout non-hungriness to pass and cleaned the whole house! The hunger never came. I showered, got into bed, watched some Man Vs. Food. The hunger never came. I woke up in the morning and BOOM the hunger was big, mean, and in a fighting mood! You’ll see how I did battle when I post today’s eats!
Sorry for the epically long post. It was a bit ramble-y and, no, I did not make an effort to edit myself.
Happy Snowy Wednesday!
