Special Delivery

Happy Monday! 😀 I know that some of you are on spring break so hope you are having lots of fun and soaking up some sun. Last week I won a Luna Bar Giveaway courtesy of Tasty and Trim and I was beyond ecstatic. Let’s just say I’ve never won any kind of contest, ever lol The fabulous Jessica was nice enough to send me 6 different flavors of Luna Bars which I’ve never tasted before 😀

As she wasn’t nice enough, this came in the box

You guys are just so fabulous, there’s nothing better than opening up a package with such a sweet card 🙂

Thanks Jessica!

S’mores was my first choice and they were going to be my ooiaj topper! 🙂


Apparently word on the street is that I am a collector of empty nut butter jars 😉 My super kind sister (well she’s my bf’s sister) gave me one.

Now that is love 🙂 My boyfriend told me I should start going door to door lol

Last night I loaded my jar up and woke up to this

In my overnight mix I had: 33g oats, 1/4 cup chocolate silk milk (a splash of water),

2 ounces of Dannon Light and Fit, cinnamon, cocoa powder, 8g chia seeds, 1/4 nanner, & sliced strawberries

In the am, I threw in 1/2 of the s’mores bar 🙂

I loved the Luna Bar! It was delicious and the perfect crunch to my breakfast 🙂

Today’s workout wasn’t so great and I can feel myself starting to get weaker. I definitely need to make sure I’m getting enough calories to sustain a good workout.

Bench Press: 55lbs (horrible) I dropped weight and still struggled.

Air Squats: I’m substituting these for lunges until my form is good enough to do real squats. I miss them 😦

Leg Press: 210 lbs

Lat Pulldown: 85 lbs

I’m definitely not where I wanna be yet, I’m not consistently increasing weight which it quite a bummer. Either way I got a good sweat.

Now I’m off to get some studying done or at least try to 🙂 Have a great Monday everyone!

  • Do you have a favorite oatmeal topper? (I couldn’t be able to pick just one)

    Luna bars can make great snacks! Congrats on winning! I’ve yet to win a blog contest but so want to 🙂

    My fave oatmeal topper has got to be nut butter! Peanut, almond…yum! Makes it so much more filling.

    Hope your workouts get better; it’s not uncommon to have times where the weights don’t go up so hang in there!

    How many calories are you eating? I have a feeling not enough- once you increase your weights will def. go up!

      I was on a bulking cycle for a few months, then cut back down, and now I’m just maintaining on 1800 calories. I hadn’t weighed myself for a few weeks and now that I did I definitely lost more weight than I intended to so I increased a bit. I just started increasing calories about a week ago so I just gotta give it some time

      • 6. april  |  03/07/2011 at 5:37 pm

        Oh yeah 1800 is way too low- 2200 is probably your maintenence now!

    I love anything on top of oats. Lately it’s been nut butter and a baked good of some kind 🙂

    I love love love love love the new chocolate coconut luna bars. They are like caramel delight (samoa) girl scout cookies! Soooo good! If you haven’t already, you need to get your hands on that.

    I almost never top my oats! I usually just mix in fruit. Maybe that’s why I’m not as thrilled by oats as the rest of the blog world?

    oh gosh oatmeal toppings… I love to mix in instant coffee and cinnamon, and top with good ole pb. but a small handful of kashi golean is always godo for some crunch! (i’m obsessed with crunch)

    those oats look amazingly delish 🙂

  • 29. Sara @ Nourish and Flourish  |  03/08/2011 at 2:37 am

    I’m a huge Luna bar fan! White Chocolate Macadamia is my favorite flavor…You should definitely try it next!

    I’m probably the only blogger who doesn’t eat oats every morning… Maybe I need to try topping them with a bar!?

    Hope your workouts improve soon!

    Not so much a topper but more of an addition of pumpkin into my oats. It makes them so much more creamy and nom.

    I’ve never tried Luna bars. You’ll have to let us know which is your favorite. 🙂

    Hooray for empty nut butter jars! Don’t worry, I had three or four nearly-empty jars in my fridge at one time. I was saving them for OIAJ. 🙂

    I’m in the vast minority, but I don’t like my overnight oats cold. But I do love to top with fruit, almonds, and nut butter!
