The strangest thing happened to me at 3am this morning when the husband got up for work:
I’ve been sleeping with my arms wrapped under my stomach (to keep me warm!) and occasionally they fall asleep. Well last night my arm DIED. It was so numb that I couldn’t even lift it. So I had to take my other hand and physically MOVE my arm out from under me. In the process my numb hand snapped back and hit me in the face and I didn’t feel it so it felt just like a rubber hand in my head. SO WEIRD!!!!!!!!!!! I hate the feeling of blood rushing back into my limbs. Luckily I don’t think I suffered any serious nerve damage!!
I woke up at 5:00 to get going on the day. (YAY it’s Friday!!) At the gym I did 45 minutes on the ET and a round of upper body weights: 2 sets of 15 of biceps, shoulder press, triceps, deltoids, and chest, all on an aerobics step to keep my heart rate up.
Once home, I got to continue playing hostess because my friend Kelsey had a project emergency and had to come to my house at 7:30 to finish our semester project for Nutrition in the Lifespan. I made her oatmeal and coffee while she worked 🙂
The combo included a new treat: Maple Pecan ProBar!
- 1/3 cup oats, soy milk, water
- 1 tiny banana
- 2 tbsp wheatberries
- 1 tbsp raisins
- Pinch salt, vanilla
- 1/8th a crumbled ProBar
- Spoonful Barney Butter
Chandelier Snickerdoodle coffee –
The ProBar, which is all organic, raw, vegan whole foods – me likes! – tasted delicious. The maple flavor was the perfect amount to now overpower the bar and the nuts were nice and chunky. And I loved the whole flax seeds in it to crunch between my teeth. My gripe? This TINY 1″ portion was 100 calories (that’s 1/4 of the 400 calorie bar)! It’s just too calorie dense for me to use regularly, but these would be perfect for an athlete or someone aiming to gain weight without feeling stuffed:
Want to try one for yourself!?!?
KERF CONTEST: From Sea To Shining Sea!!
The folks at ProBar want to spread the joy far and wide! Five KERF readers will win a 5-bar pack of ProBars. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment with your city and state (or Canadian location). I think it’ll be cool to see where you guys are all reading 🙂
Off to class!!! (That is if Kelsey finishes before we have to go!)
