Subway Salads & Callous Hands


I hope everyone is doing well!

Can we just talk about how gorgeous fall is?


I just love the colors, and that bunch (from my work window) doesn’t even have a lot of red in it like other areas around my ‘hood. (<—– yes I just said that…weird).

Speaking of colorful roughage, I have been enjoying salads lately for lunch from Subway.


Look at that baby! I eat at Subway all the time, (I even worked there for 2 years in my high school days!) but just recently thought about getting a salad.

Why not? They have a “veggie bar?” I skip the repulsive iceberg lettuce though, and just opt for spinach. And it actually turns out delish!


Today I am curious to know, do you use gloves while strength training/weight lifting?

I currently do not use gloves while training, and I do have some minor callouses on my palms. But training on Friday night tore my hands up just in the one night because we did a ton of “grip” demand type stuff….hanging from monkey bars, using Olympic rings, rope climbing, etc.


It’s a little hard to see in the picture, but it was kind of gross and it was actually pretty sore.

I think I will be heading out to find some gloves soon!

  1. Hey!

    I only use gloves when I go to the community gym. My sets of weights at home have sponge grips, so I don’t need it when working out at home. I can’t stand callouses. They do hurt!

    When I go to Subway I always get the same thing; footlong sandwich, honey oat bread, turkey with extra cheese, toasted with only tomatoes, olives and cucumber. Top it off with a honey mustard sauce. Then I eat half of it immediately and save the other half for, like, 20 minutes later… 😀

  2. i LOVE fall, such a pretty time of the year!!

    ive been majorly slacking with my weight training but I do have gloves that I use when I get time for a good session, you should def get some!

    I dont eat much at subway but sometimes I crave it…i usually do just a simple 6 in turkey and cheese but with TONS of toppings 🙂

  3. I’ve always wondered about Subway salads. Good tip to use the spinach. I get some pretty decent callouses from kettlebells, but have never used gloves.

  5. I used to use gloves all the time. Now that I am getting back into weights I think I will use them again. I feel kind of silly when I’m in the gym (like I think I’m all bad or something) but they really work to keep calluses away! haha

    It’s funny that you mention using gloves because I was just thinking the other day how I needed to start. My hands are looking a tad callous-y too 😦

  7. The fall picture reminds me of kale. Random, right?

    When I was diligent about lifting, I did bite the bullet and get a pair of gloves. I didn’t want rough man-hands. I say go for it, they do make pink ones.

    I bought rather inexpensive ones and while a tad bulky, they did help.

  8. I don’t have any gloves currently, but I’ve been thinking of getting some. Fall is so gorgeous – those colors in the trees are what helped get me through my run last weekend!

  9. Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year, I love everything about it and the colors just make the season easier to love 🙂
    I always get a sandwich from Subway, turkey, ALL the veggies and mustard. Dang it, now I’m hungry…

  10. I’m actually not a huge Subway fan. I used to eat it a lot in college, and I think I got sick of it. I prefer subs from Jersey Mikes, Which Wich, and Publix. But I usually order some type of turkey sub with honey mustard. Or at Jersey Mikes, I like their oil, vinegar, onion, and seasoning mix. Yum!
