Leave a comment to win – and extra love if you say what item you’d want to purchase 😉
Before I left I had a peach Fruition bar (made by Probar). I really love these bars. They are the perfect portion size and calorie density for a light snack and they have chia seeds embedded in them that make them really crunchy. And the flavors are spot on for my palate – not too fruity-tart and not too dry.
Driving to yoga early this morning was not the same as driving to the gym. I was in a much better mood!! Probably because I was really excited for the class. I just love hot yoga!!! Here’s the studio entrance before sunrise…
Class was…awesome. Obviously! We did a 60 minute vinyasa class and I felt like I really have improved on some of the poses. I walked in feeling stiff from yesterday’s Sculpt class and left feeling like I’d had a massage.
Emily is a big runner and we haven’t run together yet, so we ended our date with a 3.5 mile loop around the neighborhood. It was GORGEOUS out – misty, 60* with falling leaves. What a wonderful way to start the day!
On my ride home I was listening to the oldies station and What A Day For A Daydream came on. I felt the song was very appropriate for my day and whistled along 🙂 Check out this You Tube video of the Lovin’ Spoonful in action. Can’t you just see how he would have been soooo dreamy back in the day!?
Once home and showered I made the coffee video and a yogurt bowl to go with it. My yogurt bowl featured a new cereal by Bear Naked they sent me to try.
The facts (click to enlarge)
Its so gorgeous out I took breakfast outside for a modeling shoot (although I carried it back in to dine)
- ~3/4 a cup of Oikos
- ~1/3 cup pumpkin
- TJs Pumpkin Butter
- Drizzle maple
- ~1/2 cup Bear Naked
- Smidge of Maranatha on the spoon
I actually wasn’t that crazy about the Bear Naked cereal. I think it’s just my palate though. The flavor was Cranberry Raisin, which I usually like, but there was something in it that I didn’t love. I did love the little clusters and seeds. You know – it might have been the pumpkin seeds that I didn’t love. Sometimes they are too savory for me. I bet the Banana Nut flavor is awesome. I also think the cereal is quite calorie dense at 200 calories for 2/3 a cup. I’m guessing that’s the seeds in there, but I will probably use it more as a topping than a bowl-filler.
OMG – SCRUBBING BUBBLES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those of you who recommended these, I picked some up recently and am EVER so impressed!!! Our shower floor was so coated with grime we were considering having it refinished before we put our house on the market. Our realtor even suggested a whole next shower stall! Well the scrubbing bubbles made that shower SPARKLE
Windows Live Movie Maker – best movie maker I’ve ever used!!! Not sure if it’s only a Windows 7 version or for anyone to download, but highly recommended! SO user friendly with all the effects and stuff.
Not sure what’s on the agenda next. I have to get my car inspected 🙁 Might do another NERD KERF video! And Matt and I have a really fun date planned this evening!
