HAPPY Saturday 😀
Sorry about the lack of post last night..it was NOT a good night at all. (more on that in a minute)
Breakfast yesterday was something NEW!!! I used Brittany’s recipe for a breakfast cookie. SO GOOD! These will definitely be a regular in my list of breakfasts.
Now- I have a question for you- is the breakfast cookie supposed to get hard overnight? Or still be mushy, more like overnight oats? Mine was definitely mushy- like eating oats..instead of more hard/ formed like a cookie.
For lunch- I had the usual, except I forgot my baggie of cereal 😦 So no crunch in it for me…bummer. I always love a little crunch in my yogurt messes.
For my afternoon snack I had a Sweet Wheat Alternative Bagel…no need for another picture of that- you’re probably sick of it 😉
For my workout I did a pure cardio day- first off the 3-2-1 treadmill interval run:
Warm up – 2 minutes @ 3.7
Cool down for 2 minutes @ 3.7
Then I did 5 minutes on the ArcTrainer.
Total Time: 41:25, Max HR: 181, Avg HR: 149, Calories burned: 310
Now I learned something interesting about my Garmin foot pod today. I was talking to Jess about it as well-& I would love your thoughts as well. Ok, so I noticed that when I wear my foot pod my Garmin calculates the calories burned DIFFERENT than if I JUST wear my heart rate monitor strap. You see I did an experiment yesterday- when I JUST wear my HR monitor, I burned just around 290 calories during that run, BUT when I wore my foot pod + HR monitor previously on this exact same run it said I bured 401 calories. Now that’s quite a difference in my opinion. I know it is WAY more accurate to go by just the HR monitor..which is what I will continue to do – unless I go for a run outside (since I like to know the milage). I just thought that was weird.- with the HR monitor is takes me about 1.5 miles to burn 100 calories (which seems RIGHT) & with the foot pod on it’s only .87 or. 91 EVERY TIME. (I should of known by that, that the foot pod calorie amount was off)
If you have a Garmin, have you noticed the same thing?
Now, I don’t really have much for my dinner…well, because I didn’t eat dinner. Craig & I got into kind of a big fight last night & I was not in the mood to eat. I get like that when I’m upset- the LAST thing I feel like doing is eating. I was just really upset. We are TOTALLY GREAT now :D- we worked everything out last night – but it was not a good night.
Although once we worked everything out, he asked me to PLEASE eat something…so I ate 2 pieces of toast (how exciting, eh?!)
After breakfast I had to run some errands- including going to the grocery store. When I left the store, I happened to drive RIGHT by Old Navy & I saw that the WHOLE store was 30% OFF!!!! So of course I HAD to stop. But I did remind myself that I was ONLY allowed to buy stuff for work- which I accomplished (got some pants,a few different tops & some dresses) but I also got 2 new running tanks & a pair of shorts..but I really did need them 🙂 If you have an Old Navy near you..you should check it out. I saved over $50!!
Now I’m off to continue watching the World Cup- GO USA! 😀
