Three Things Thursday

Here are a few of my random thoughts:

1. Why am I always so much hungrier on a non-workout day? It's annoying! 

2. Is nuun making my tummy hurt? Without going in to gory details, I've got a bit of a touchy tummy. Things have mostly been just fine for a while but then my tummy started giving me troubles again, to the point it was happening every night. One day I was telling my friend how much I liked nuun and she asked what it was sweetened with and I told her it was xylitol. She said she can't consume xylitol, it gives her tummy troubles! A light bulb went off in my head and I immediately decided to cut out the nuun cold-turkey to see if it would help. By golly, I think it has. Isn't that the saddest thing ever? I am playing with seeing if it's a matter of how much I consume, instead of if I consume any at all. So far, I think that is helpful. 

3. I have tall girl issues in the gym. It seems like almost every workout my trainer tells me, well, you're tall, so this will be harder for you. Push-ups? check. Pull-ups? check. The row machine? check. I suspect almost every exercise that requires you to extend your arms out is more difficult the taller you are. My trainer says "it's the longer levers!" I started joking and saying I was going to blame all of my short-comings on my height (so punny!). "Sorry I was late, it's 'cause I'm tall!" "Oh, you didn't like the work I did on that project? It's my height. Always a problem."

So, have you ever been more hungry on non-workout days? 
Have any issues with xylitol, and therefor nuun? 
Anything that is setting you back in the gym that you can't do a darned thing about except work harder to overcome it?
