Nothings standing in my way..
Its the perfect day, nothing can go wrong!
Ahh I had the most relaxing day ever today! 🙂
After sleeping in I got up and lazily made myself a bowl of Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal, which I proceeded to eat while I watched Gilmore Girls. What is one of your favorite television shows?
Usually soon after eating breakfast I make my way to the gym to do some cardio and lifting. But today I thought I would shake it up a little bit! Instead I got ready and went out and did a little shopping. Including a pit stop at my favorite bookstore to catch up on my magazine reading and google reader.
Who knew that blog reading was such hungry work? Luckily I packed a snack with me in my new laptop bag to tide me over…
First off right away after I opened up the package I noticed that it was majorly oily. What is up with that? It got all over my hands (not to mention my camera) which made taking pictures quite challenging. I really enjoyed the texture however, it was nice and smooth and there weren’t any huge chunks of nuts or seeds in it. The flavor was wonderful too, I have become a huge fan of spirulina since I have been adding it to my Groovy Green Oats.
Check the oily-ness!
Ingredients – Cashews, Dates, Agave Nectar, Almonds, Spirulina Powder, Sprouted Flax Seed.
The verdict? While I really enjoyed the flavors of this bar, I did not really care for all of the extra oil. Plus it was on the larger side and had tons of calories. Usually when I grab a bar it will be in between meals or after a workout. This was particularly heavy on my stomach. Good though!
After finishing up at borders I stopped on the way home at Ghossains – the cutest little middle eastern store in town – to pick up some new goodies.
The huugest tub of raw dates, whole wheat pita, and falafel mix (cant wait to try this!).
Also I was hungry! And I needed to get some food in my belly before my Zumba class so I picked up a tub of baba ganoush. Over the weekend I attempted to make my own baba ganoush using a recipe I found in Vegetarian Time, but it turned out awful! Not worth even showing on the blog! But I still cant help but wonder where I went wrong. Ah well, I will try it again soon.
Then it was off to Zumba for me! Ahh how I love it! Today’s class was glorious and I loved every single minute of it! Did I mention that I cant wait until I can get Zumba certified? Its in 40 days… but whose counting. 😉
Immediately after Zumba I changed workout tops and made my way to the gym to do some late night lifting and some more cardio. What did I work today? Legs and abs. Ahhh how I love leg days! But I’m learning to love arm days too! What is your favorite part of your body to train?
Question of the day – Describe to me your perfect day!
