How did I not know that The Bachelorette was on last night?!?! I am so disappointed in myself!
The Bachelorette is my one guilty pleasure, and I can’t believe I missed the season premier last night. Oh well, to pay for my mistake, I made myself watch the episode on my computer this afternoon.
Before lunch today, I spent 45 minutes lifting weights at the gym. I worked my upper body, legs, and abs. I also spent some time really stretching my leg muscles that are notoriously tight!!
After the gym, I ran a couple of errands, and then came home for a late lunch.
A sandwich from Great Harvest!
I have been wanting to get a sandwich from Great Harvest for some time now. However, leaving school mid-day to get lunch isn’t very conducive for a teacher, but now that it is summer vacation, that’s a different story!
As expected, the sandwich was delicious!!
I also made myself a Green Monster protein smoothie.
I snacked on some of these chips alongside my sandwich.
I really like these rice-based chips. They have a really hearty thickness and crunch to them, and the sweet chili flavoring has a little heat but not too much.
Over the weekend I took a yoga class with my friend Katie.
We went to Laughing Lotus Yoga in Anchorage.
The inside of the studio was clean, inviting, and filled with vibrant colors.
The studio itself was lit with a handful of small windows and had hardwood floors.
I was optimistic I would have a good experience, but sadly I was quite disappointed. It just wasn’t my style. I have a hard time embracing the hippiness of yoga: “creating happy atoms with my hands” and “breathing in the sunshine and exhaling the moonlight.” The class just wasn’t for me.
This was my 4th studio in Anchorage I have practiced yoga at.
The other studios I’ve gone to:
Anchorage Yoga (hands down my favorite!)
The Alaska Club (I did not blog about this class, but I had a good experience.)
A new (to me) protein bar I recently tried.
I have tried three different flavors of these Zone Perfect bars and have enjoyed each one of them. I’ve tried quite a few protein/nutrition bars in my day, and I’d have to say these are definitely one of my favorites!
I appreciate they are all-natural and don’t have 300+ calories per bar. (Most have right around 200 calories.)
(I am guessing these deals could also be found across the country??)
If you need to stock up on Clif or GU products, go to REI. All the products are 25% off. The Clif products are advertised in the sale ad, but the GU products are also on sale!
Also, today Gap had an additional 30% off their sale-priced items tonight. AND if you bring in your used clothing (before May 29), Gap will donate the clothes to Goodwill and you will save 30% off your entire purchase!
What is your favorite protein/nutrition bar?
