Until I started dabbling in this little world of healthy living blogs, I had never even heard of Chobani yogurt. In my opinion, yogurt was yogurt – how different could they really be? Especially when I can buy 3 Wegman’s brand yogurts for the price of 1 Chobani yogurt… I can’t say I was 100% on-board to switching over to some over-priced, over-advertised yogurt. But I felt like trying this yogurt had to be some sort of initiation into the blog world, so I sucked it up and bought some.
First of all, let me say that Chobani yogurt is totally different than any yogurt I’ve ever had. It’s so different that I don’t think I can eat normal yogurt again. (Or maybe Chobani puts crack in their yogurt so you keep going back for more and more of their ridiculously priced yogurts?) Grrr. I’m going to try to rationalize spending an inordinate amount of money on yogurt by pointing out that it actually does have 2-3x more protein than most normal yogurts – and I could use some extra protein in my life.
With that said, I definitely bought a whole bunch of new flavors on my latest grocery shopping trip – notably the pomegranate flavor. I love everything pomegranate flavored… until now. Ew Ew Ew. Never again will I buy this flavor. It had SEEDS in the bottom. Do I look like I want seeds in my yogurt? I didn’t know what the devil to do with them. Do you eat them? Do you spit them out like watermelon seeds? I don’t know. I ended up spitting all of them out and it totally took away from the yogurt. Disgusting. Never again. I’ll stick to normal flavors.
At least Mogli seemed to enjoy it…
Onto my Sunday [Funday] workout.
Thank god spin class isn’t until noon on Sundays because I managed to sleep until 10am. Win. I headed out to spin class and managed 17 miles on the bike consisting of a “Hill” workout.
- 10 minute hill (increase resistance every 2 min) + 2 min stand + 1 min seated fast + 2 min hover
- 8 minute hill (increase resistance every 2 min) + 2 min hover + 1 min seated fast + 2 min stand
- 6 minute hill (you get the idea)
- 4 minute hill (again…)
- 5 minutes of intervals including Sprint – Stand – Hover – Rest
- Finish it all off with a 1 minute spring
