Yesterday was cardio-day, thankfully, no Jillian Michaels bossing me around, haha!! Rusty and I decided to go for a run, which surprisingly is something we hadn't done in quite a while. After running the half-marathon in December, I haven't been running as much as I used to. My focus has shifted on weight training and circuit training, with some running in the mix but no where near as much as before. So, to switch things up a bit it was time for a run outside and far far away from the treadmill!
It was such a beautiful day for a run around campus! After the run we decided to keep the cardio going by chatting it up with a walk through campus! Walking through campus really brought back memories of freshmen year in college, specially strolling by this place
I used to get a smoothie from Smoothie King daily, it was one of my daily snacks *yikes* I could sucked those suckers down like nobody's bisnazzz. Oh and did I mention... I never once got the smallest serving size they offered. There I was naively thinking that I was making such a "healthy" decision. Boy was I in a surprise when I found their smoothies nutritional stats!!
Keep in mind that those stats are for their smallest serving size. Since Angel Food was my favorite smoothie, on average I was ingesting 531 calories from one of my "healthy" daily snacks! I always question how I was so fooled to think that they were a healthy snack (maybe as meal replacements they make sense), guess I was just ignorant. So be wary of smoothies, they may pack in more calories that you expect.
But no more do I pay Mr. Smoothie King a visit, I am know a Smoothie Queen and choose to make my own smoothies. I know Kalli loves to make her own smoothies as well she always celebrates with a Smoothie Friday!
Like today's rockin' Strawberry Banana Smoothie (you bet it is beats Smoothie King's butt)
Have you ever been fooled by a product that you thought was healthy but turned out it was not?
What old unhealthy habits have you kicked to the curb?
