More To Love

Happy Tuesday! That rainy weather I talked about in my post yesterday? We got hit pretty hard last night with some more rain, but I'm hoping this is the last of it. Rain makes it hard to be productive, and productivity is certainly something that needs to happen for me these next few days!


I did manage to squeeze in a swim yesterday, in between bouts of raininess, though my legs were feeling S O R E after taking a BodyPump class on Sunday. It's hard for me to motivate myself to do hundreds of squats and lunges, so I get hit pretty hard whenever I make my way to BodyPump. Maybe it's time to change that? Anyway, I was happy for a low-impact cardio workout, because I'm not so sure I could have handled anything else!

That low-impact exercise yesterday was just what I needed in order to make that dreaded 5:30am wake-up call so that I could make it to a 6am spin class. As much as I dislike waking up in the 5 o'clock hour, I do love starting my day off with a workout.

Another thing I love about taking spin classes is the fact that they're never the exact same. One may focus on hill training, one may be all intervals, and yet another may focus on speed. This morning's spin class was a lot of speed work, both on flats and on hills. We would do a burst of speed, get a very brief recovery period, and then speed back up again. Alternating standing and sitting, flats and hills, made the time fly by!


Same song, different day. Scrambled egg whites, spinach, salsa, and a side of chopped mango. It just has yet to get old!


I don't know how many of you are big snackers (guilty), but the rest of this post will be dedicated to a snack that is both delicious and nutritious. And addictive. I have been known to finish off almost an entire bag in one sitting. But how can you feel guilty about a snack that has half the fat of fried chips? popchips, inc. was formed in 2007, and they were quick to snatch up all kinds of awards and acclaims, including "best snack" and "best chip," and even being name one of "America's hottest brands."

popchips are never fried, never baked, and through the magic of popping, popchips are even healthier than full fat potato, tortilla, or corn chips, and absolutely none of the flavor is sacrificed. Potato popchips come in nine taste-bud popping potato flavors, including original, barbeque, sour cream & onion, sea salt & vinegar, cheddar, salt & pepper, chili lime, sweet potato (my personal favorite), and thai sweet chili. Tortilla popchips come in four flavors, including nacho cheese, ranch, salsa, and chili limon. And finally, for all of the Katy Perry fans out there, Katy Perry's signature flavor, Katy's Kettle Corn popchips is the newest addition to the popchips family.

I am a big-time lover of food that is both crunchy and salty, so it was only natural that I fell in love with popchips the very first time I ate them (and hence, the reason I can finish off an entire bag in one sitting).
