Pink Sandbag or Pink Ricebag?
As I begin to write this, I thought I was in for the night! WOO HOO was I excited!
But alas, I remember I need to go buy a bunch of 5 or 10-lb bags of rice. Rice? Why rice, do you ask, if you don’t eat grains? Well, well well…
This is why my friends. For my work out tomorrow morning of course Silly question. Why ELSE would you buy rice!? To eat?
Sandbag no more. Now it’s officially a Pink Ricebag, courtesy of yours truly!
Sand is too messy. Rice in plastic bags on the other hand, not messy at all. And why a bunch of 5 or 10-lb bags? Then I get to play with any weight at multiples of 5 or 10 lbs. I figure I’ll buy between 30-50 lbs of rice, seems like enough weight to start playing with at the moment, and I can always add more in the future if it isn’t heavy enough. The amount I buy will probably be determined by the pretty pennies it’ll cost me to buy it.
My schedule changes every eight weeks as my clinical rotations change. Some sessions I have crack-of-dawn classes and clinicals before work and need to work out in the privacy of my own home. Therefore these next eight weeks, my Pink Ricebag will come in mighty handy!
So psyched to try out my new Ultimate Sandbag. It’s super high quality and PERFECT for rockin’ some seriously sweaty at-home, or anywhere-really workouts!!
Before I run out the door to the nearest asian mart to grab the cheapest rice bags I can find, I figured I’d back up to this morning real quick!
My day started with a rockin’ bout of Stairmill HIIT Cardio + Shoulders and Triceps at the gym!

Followed by some girl-time with some egg-white and veggie omelettes with an awesome fitness friend. Our conversation consisted of nutrition and fitness. What better conversation is there?? Grocery shopping next. Cost-co and Target are two of my favorite stores ever, btw. Just in case you were oh so curious! Studying and work came next, followed by some food prep.
Asparagus makes me happy. That’s totally normal, right?
Fish and chicken. Clean eating, lean protein staples!
And now I’m sitting here blogging wishing I had remembered to pick up my zillion 5 or 10-lb bags of rice on my way home from my errands this morning.
You know what? I know. You’re all staring at your computer screen refreshing the button waiting for this to pop up .. ‘cause I know that’s how you spend all your days right? Right…
But I’m going to get those rice bags now.
And I’m BAAAACK!
With a 10-lb and a 20-lb rice bag. I wanted a bunch of smaller rice bags. Say, oh, 5 lb-ers or so. BUT apparently the larger the bag, the cheaper. By a LOT. So the frugal side of me came out and I have decided to create a project for myself tonight and break up the 20-lb bag into my own 5-lb ziplock bags filled with rice to add to the 10-lb bag in my Pink Sandbag Ricebag.
Either that or I’ll try to just shove the 20-lb bag into the sandbag. Dilemmas, my friends, dilemmas. My life is so rough .
I’m pumped! Off to shove some bags of rice into my totally cute (but don’t be fooled by its adorable color – it’s a butt kicker!) sandbag for tomorrow’s morning workout…
- Where do you work out? The gym? Home? Outdoors? A combo of all of the above?
- What did YOUR workout consist of today?
- Do you own a sandbag? Have you ever used one?
