Yesterday afternoon while I was grocery shopping, I came across a very exciting little item. I first saw Monica mention these, and then Shayla teased me with them. So when I saw them sitting on the shelf yesterday at my grocery store, I had no choice but to bring ‘em home with me…
Thomas’ Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice bagels! AND they were on sale. WOOP!
So I’m sure you’re not surprised when I tell you that I had one for breakfast this morning, right?
I lightly toasted my bagel and topped it with a peanut butter-pumpkin mixture (about 1 tbsp of each) and some banana slices.
Honestly, I try not to buy bagels too often because I just can’t control myself with them (for this same reason, I should probably stop buying ice cream, but I still can’t seem to do that…); I would probably eat one at every meal if I could.
But since I prefer not to end up in a carb coma everyday, I usually end up buying some form of bagel or sandwich thins instead. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some bagel thins every now and then, but you can’t tell me that they’re anywhere close to being just as good as the real deal.
I mean, the fluff factor is the best part!
So since these pumpkin spice bagels are all limited edition and whatnot, I made an exception. And I will enjoy every single one of them…carbs, fluff and all.
I’ll also tell you that they go perfectly with a delicious mug of homemade pumpkin spice coffee.
And are delicious fuel for a post workout session.
Today’s workout brought me to Day 10 (wow, already?!?) of the
new challenge. The only workout on tap for today was yoga, so I ended up doing the same combo of yoga and HIIT on the treadmill that I did last week. It felt so good to stretch today; definitely perfect timing!
**Side Note: I’ve had a few of you get in touch with me to tell me that you’re also following along with the challenge. That is SO awesome, so props to you!
One of the questions I’ve been getting is regarding the recovery workouts: *If you are doing the challenge through an On Demand channel, the recovery workouts are actually the original, 20-minute 10lb. Slimdown workouts.
Alrighty folks, gotta jet! Have a GREAT Wednesday!
