Check out what I spotted at the gym this morning.
A re-vamped vending machine filled with “healthy organic natural” food and water. The new vending machine replaced two more traditional machines that were full of your classic chips, candy, cookies, and soda. I thought those machines were always a little odd for a gym (especially when I noticed the summer camp kids fumbling with quarters for their 8am M&M fix), I mean, this is a gym after all. Sure, this new one still has some chip and cookie options, but not as many and they’re actually ingredient lists that I can somewhat stand behind. I like the variety of water on the bottom too. For some reason that makes me giggle. 🙂
Well done YMCA. 🙂
Does your gym have vending machines? What’s inside?
I started my gym workout this morning with some treadmill intervals. I followed a Tone It Up interval workout and toggled between 3 minutes at 7.5 and 2 minutes at 4.0 for a total of 30 minutes. I also started reading “The Art of Racing In the Rain” for book club. Seeing as the first chapter already had me tearing up, I know I’m in trouble with this book.
I followed the treadmill with Mary’s Jello Leg Workout. I really, really, enjoy this workout. It’s challenging, tiring, and my muscles feel fatigued by the end – it doesn’t get much better than that. I know Mary did the workout on a bosu ball last week, but I’m not sure I’m ready for that yet. Maybe next week.
We leave for Baltimore tomorrow, which means I’m trying to eat as much of our fresh fruit and vegetables until then.
This morning’s breakfast bowl was heavy on the fruit.
- 4 strawberries
- 1/2 pineapple
- 1 apple
- vanilla Chobani
- Kashi Go Lean Crisp
Very refreshing. 🙂 I could eat nothing, but fresh fruit all day and be a happy girl. 🙂
Time to get to work!
