Sundays are usually my rest day, but I can’t say I’ve been very good at my rest days lately. I kind of haven’t had one in a month. It’s a problem, and I know it sounds nuts, but I’m not really motivated to do anything about it.
Enter: Bike ride.
As much as I don’t want to stop to taking rest days, I know I’ll end up with months of rest days if I overdo it so I went slow for 14 miles which took me about an hour.
I know spin is fun, but you just can’t beat being out here. I swear it makes you forget how much your quads are burning.
Ok well not really but I do find that time flies way faster out here than on a stationary.
Pre-ride I needed some more fuel and I finally got to try one of the new ALT bars by Larabar.
I had the Lemon Pound Cake. For some reason I was worried it would taste super sweet and sour like those hard lemon candies I was obsessed with when I was like 5. Plus, it’s made with pea protein. Ew man.
It ACTUALLY TASTES LIKE POUND CAKE!!!
It’s taking a lot of self-control to refrain from eating the other ones I bought. I can’t wait to try the other flavors! And, not like it was going to stop me now, but my stomach has felt great since I ate it so it’s safe to say these will be a staple in my future.
Once I got home I promptly devoured everything except the ALT bars- including (but not limited to) grapes, watermelon, a think thin bar, and iced coffee. Now, I know what you’re thinking: There was definitely peanut butter included in that hodgepodge.
I plead the fifth.
Next on my list is a walk with Fen, some yoga action, and then a meal plan for the week.
Today’s Question: Have you tasted the deliciousness that is ALT bars?
