You Say S’more, I say S’moooooooore

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on January 25, 2010

Hello!

Trucking along today! Gittin ‘er done.

I wanted to quickly discuss something that has been bothering me:

Blah, gray, cold, icy WINTER!

Is it summer yet??? I miss the sun. :(

I have had such a hard time motivating myself to workout lately. I think it is the winter blahs and the fact that I haven’t been able to workout outdoors at all. The roads around my house are all non-residential, so it is very unsafe for me to be on roads with big trucks in the winter. I’m not willing to risk my life for an outdoor workout! Thus I have been stuck on the treadmill and things are getting quite lackluster. I was considering getting a gym membership but I just don’t know if I want to pay for one and also spend the extra time driving there and back each day. What’s a girl to do? Eric and I have also had a really hard time motivating ourselves to whittle.

My eats during the day were fairly carb heavy, so I decided to get a few servings of veggies in for a quick dinner! I ate dinner around 4:30pm tonight because I was a bottomless pit all day. I should get a senior’s discount… ;)

Beetlejuice:

Beet, celery, carrots, lime, 1/2 pear. Eric is getting annoyed because I keep saying, ‘I seriously don’t think it is possible to make a BAD juice!!!’ He says, ‘So I hear…’ lol. Luckily I have you all to blab about my passion for these crazy things!

1 can of Amy’s Reduced Sodium Split Pea Soup:

IMG_9997

I don’t buy canned soup often, but when I do this is one of my favs!!! A true jem and great when I am time crunched.

IMG_9991

[Opps, should have taken this photo with the can facing the light!]

Per can, it has about 11.5 grams of protein and 10 grams of fibre so it is quite filling compared to some soups.

And a huge salad:

Then I had an Adore Glo Bar:

IMG_0003

It was brought to my attention that I had spelled S’more wrong on my previous Adore labels!

As you can see below I spelled it S’moore (with two O’s):

IMG_9642

I thought it would be fun to do a quick poll tonight regarding this matter: ;)

hahaha oh that was fun. Can’t wait to see what you select! ;)

Off to clean the kitchen and then hopefully veg on the couch watching 24. My back/shoulders are aching from baking…it’s gotten so bad lately! I think I need someone to walk on my back with hot stones and crack all the knots out.

Night!

It is hard to motivate on the cloudy days but I try to think about how good I will feel when i am done. On the sunny days I make it a point to get outside and enjoy. Funny you are talking about joining a gym I have been thinking about setting up a gym at home. Cannot wait until you are selling your bars at the market. I also wanted to ask whatever happened to selling them at Fresh restaurant?

I would have picked the Canadian option, but if it was really because you are Canadian, you would have spelled it “S’mour”. We do love the superfluous “u”s :)

Totally feelin’ you on the winter workout situation. I just found out there are rec centers in the city of denver and you can join for $50 for 3 months. There is one 3/4m away which is obviously walkable. I’m thinkin about it…but the whole money thing. It doesn’t matter how you spell s’moooore, still tastes the same ;) and looks ridiculously amazing I might add!!!

I thought I would have a terrible time exercising in the cold, but it wasn’t that bad! I’ve gone to the gym mostly, but one day I ran outside and it was 17F when I went out! It wasn’t that bad! Running buddy was essential though, if not I probably wouldn’t have gone. :/

Unfortunately, I don’t even have a treadmill to run on :(

Ugh I am SO over winter already. And we’ve still got February to get through! At least with March comes home.
I’m totally with you on the juicing thing too. I haven’t made a bad one since I’ve gotten it! But I hate juicing things that I love to just eat – like pears, berries, pineapple. I don’t mind juicing grapefruits, carrots, celery or beats – because I rarely eat them, nor desire too. If I find a good sale on pears I’ll try em out :D

I voted that you were just too excited about the new S’moOres, but I kinda hope it’s cause Sketchie had his input! haha

Anyways for your workout situation what about getting some kind of cardio dvd, some of them are supposed to be really good or you could get one of those ones that is kind of like a series you follow for so many days. I think they might be kind of expensive but cheaper than a gym!

in the meantime i’ve been working hard to some great dvd’s. i totally love working out to jillian michaels, and her “No More Trouble Zones” and “Banish Fat Boost Metabolism” dvds are FABULOUS!! they are 50 minute circuit dvds (NMTZ is more strength training with weights, BFBM is more cardio with only body weight)…. i am switching them up and working up a decent sweat! :)

Can I get s’more o dat Adore bar ? ;)

As for workout motivation in the Canadian winter blues, I agree that the treadmill can rapidly turn into the “dreadmill”.

I switch it up by doing circuits or intervals (sans revolving apparatus of death) – just plain and pure calisthenics – jump rope, jumping jacks, jumping squats, mountain climbers, push-ups, running up and down the stairs…you get the point! Make it spontaneous, make it fun! :)

Oh, I can totally understand you, I am waiting for the summer for so long now.
Have you ever tried workout dvds? They could make your indoor training a little bit more exciting. And there are “sunlight lamps” that cover the spectrum of the natural light – if we look into them for about 15 minutes daily, this winterblues could be reduced.

jessica January 26, 2010 at 2:48 am

I had that soup with my dinner tonight, too!! It’s one of my absolute favorites of the canned variety! Especially with some hot sauce mixed in, and kashi crackers w/ hummus on the side :)

Reply

Natasha January 26, 2010 at 4:05 am

I think someone has already said it… but get yourself on amazon, and check-out the workout DVDs. There are loads to choose from, and I find it’s a great alternative when time is limited or I can’t workout outside. I personally like the Ministry of Sound ‘Pump It Up’ series. The workouts really get your heart-rate up, and the music is much better than most of the other DVDs I’ve tried.

It is possible to make bad juice, trust, I’ve done it. My usual mix is beet, 2 baby carrots, 1/2 english cuke, lemon, 3 stalks kale, parsley and a touch of cilantro. But, I have added in dandelion greens or the beet greens, not good at all. So bitter!

Sounds like a delicious and nutrition filled dinner!! I for one cannot wait to get my S’moore bars or S’more bars or whatever you want to call them.. they sound soo good!

I usually have a hard time motivating myself in the winter too. The treadmill is not fun after a while :( I think a gym membership is a good idea. The key question to ask yourself is, would you really use it?? You would have a lot more variety in cardio equipment!

[email protected] January 26, 2010 at 10:05 am

Hang in there with the winter blues. It will pass. Ond morning you will wake up and feel so much better. The gym membership will only be exciting for a few weeks and then you will feel the same about it as you do right now.

Personally I think you should leave the smores spelled smoores-i think it is cute!

I am so frustrated by winter weather too! I live on an icy back road in Vermont so running is out of the question and I can’t stand the treadmill. I’ve really been enjoying snowshoeing lately, which is a great workout, and workout DVDs a few times a week. I know you mentioned P90X yoga before, but have you tried Kenpo or Cardio X? Those are my go-to videos – so fun and energizing! Tony’s commentary never fails to crack me up.

I’ve been the same way about the weather…it was sunny and warm (70s) a few days last week, and was able to run. But that made the cold (30s) dreary days after that even more intolerable. I don’t know how you do it up there in Canada…I would freeze my buns off! 30 degree and below is where I draw the limit..lol! Just too acclimated to southern climates, I guess.

I even signed up for 8 weeks of hot yoga because it feels so good to be HOT when it’s so freezing outside. Maybe new circuit/bootcamp type workouts or some yoga downloads would help you mix it up at home?

The depressing side of winter is actually one of the BIG reasons I moved to Florida. I lived up north (in the US) and I absolutely hated the winter. It was so gray and depressing and it really got to me. I love FL. Although it is hot in the summertime, and there are hurricanes, it is also sunny and gorgeous most of the time.

Try to keep up the exercise, whether it is indoors or at a gym… it releases endorphins (as you know!) which will help you combat the blues! Also, maybe try to find a *different* kind of workout. Perhaps an 8 week belly dancing class or Zumba or something new and exciting. That might help kick the winter blues too!

Last week I noticed that it wasn’t pitch black by 5pm anymore! I was so excited. Warmer days are around the corner.

I really prefer running outside too, and here in Boston it’s been SO miserable!! I feel you. I hit the gym because I have to, but it sucks to run on the tredmill. Sometimes I get lucky and there’s a good show on and I’ll watch that while I run, but I find that music motivates me better outside. Oh well. It has to pass eventually, right??

Anyway. . .I don’t have a gym memebership and for exercise I cross country ski, do yoga, and I have several workout DVD’s that incorporate weight training. I highly recommend Jari Love’s DVD’s!! She is amazing and her workouts are killer. She has two brand new workout DVD’s that I got for Christmas: “Get Extremely Ripped” and “Get Extremely Ripped 1000” You have the option of just doing a 30 minute workout or completing the entire hour. Good Stuff.

I have lost pretty much all motivation to work out. It started out that I got a cold… then bronchitis… and now, I’m feeling better but I can barely motivate myself to get to work, let alone work out.
I don’t even have the whole weather excuse because I live on the West Coast and we have no snow. So then I feel about 10 times guiltier for NOT getting outdoors.
Although, I do not have a gym membership so I run outdoors, and it isn’t safe to run in my neighbourhood in the dark as it is not well lit. So then I thought I’d do workout DVD’s, um, yah, that was a MAJOR fail.
My running clinic starts back up next week, so I’m really looking forward to that, but really… I just can’t wait until the days gets longer. I hate winter!

About DVDs. I’m doing a strength-training DVD series with my husband and I definitely am not a fan. I think spending an hour in front of the TV having someone tell me what to do is the worst way to start off the day. But it works for him, and I agreed to support.

About treadmill workouts — you should look into some of the different things you can do with your treadmill. On very low speeds you can do walking lunges, squats (to the side), etc.

Outside — if it is at least around freezing, do your work-outs outside anyway. I do this when traveling, and I kind of like it. I imagine myself as Rocky — I run sprints in the snow — just as good as running on the beach.

And you know that watching the Olympics is going to give you that extra kick no matter what, so no worries for the next few weeks, eh?

Sherry January 26, 2010 at 3:57 pm

Have you and Eric ever gone up to Hilton Falls. It is great for walks and runs. One year family pass is only $115 for all 6 parks. Absolutely fantastic photo opportunities, Bonfire pits to get warmed up and toast marshmallows and the squirrels like a few sunflower seeds as well. We are so hoping for spring as we took all the mountain bikes out to Spokes n Slopes in Milton on Sunday to be turned up. We are so done with winter as well. LOL We were hoping to go up to Hilton Falls on Sunday but it rained. I miss getting out there in winter but it’s a bit far to drive for an hour walk as we would spend more time driving then walking. We will get out on a plus 10 day with no rain I hope soon.
We are out every Saturday and Sunday once it starts to hit about 12. We are just a bit addicted to the place as we are out rain or shine when it is over 12. We do Kelso one day and Hilton Falls the other but Hilton falls is better for running. For a nice soft walk you can go to Kelso. It is great when your feet are sore as it’s almost like walking on spongy cork Hilton Falls is a harder groomed trail.
Kelso you can see lots of deer just past Wizards Way and the lookout is great. Hilton Falls has tons of chipmunks and birds that will eat out of your hand at the falls. You may see the beaver at beaver dam if you are there around dusk so there is lots of things to take pictures of to keep it interesting as you walk or run. Bonus, I have not seen 1 snake on the trails. The trails are busy so they stay in the woods, which is just fine by me.
The gym is just equipment indoors, this might be better if you are like us and missing being outside. I take Maggie out for a walk a couple of times a week to get outside, but wish I was able to take her up to the woods for a walk….. No cars…. Traffic lights…. noise….
Anyway just an idea for you to break up winter that won’t break the bank and both of you can do it. Great biking trails for Eric if he likes biking.

Angela, I like your “S’moore” typo just the way it is! I know what you mean about winter, but I would suggest picking up a pair of crampons. They are relatively inexpensive and allow for safe treading on icy days and “outdoorsing” in general!

That’s it…I splurged tonight and bought a juicer! These juices you’re making look amazingly delish and sound very very good! Now I have to hurry up and wait for it to get here. What’s a girl to do for a whole week and a half?! :)

I just tried the S’more Adore glo bar today, and I have to say it is AMAZING! I love it!!

And I don’t think you can go wrong with fresh juices, either!
