So lately (aka the past two days) I’ve been switching it up a little – both workout and food wise. Nothing major, just a few new things — which I’ve been loving! I tend to purchase the same fruits and vegetables at the food store, and do pretty much the same thing at the gym–although I have definitely been trying to switch it up more often. However, picking up a few new-to-me foods won’t kill me, and discovering new muscles won’t make me cry 😉
New Thang #1:
I have a really bad perception stuck in my head that in order to get a ‘good’ workout, one must go to the gym. This ain’t so, people. It just ain’t so. Yesterday after work, I had one too many errands to run and getting to the gym just wasn’t on my priority list. So how did I fix this? With the above Jillian Michaels DVD. Holy COW! I was working so many foreign to me muscles and worked up a sweat within the first 15 minutes. I definitely felt sore today and plan to incorporate this DVD into my workouts more often!
New Thang #2:
I have heard so many amazing things about grapefruit, but was never the person who scooped one up at the grocery store. That all changed last night as I was in Trader Joes–I eyed the grapefruit for a minute (not creepy, or anything) and decided to purchase two. I brought one to work today, sliced it in half and sprinkled it with some splenda. I have to admit, I had no idea how to eat one of these things. My co-worker was kind enough to teach me how to slice the flesh away from the rind and scoop it out with a spoon. It took me way too long to discover grapefruit.
New Thang #3:
PB2 has been featured on foodie blogs for a while now and I had yet to find it. Luckily, I spotted a jar at a health food store this past weekend. I’m the type of person who can eat a couple spoon full’s of peanut butter within a minute or two, so to have the control of mixing 2 tbsp of the powder with a tbsp of water definitely keeps my portion control in check. Plus it’s yummy and half the calories!
New Thang #4:
These Trader Joes Turkey Burgers cannot do me wrong. Well, truthfully I haven’t tried one yet but I plan to tomorrow night! Have any of you had these??
