Thanks for all your kind words and support on my last post. It’s nice to know you guys understand and that I’m not the only one who goes through these tough times.
But when LARABAR offered me the opportunity to host a giveaway, I had to make the time to blog. Because LARABARs are AWESOME. I seriously horde them. The cherry pie and chocolate chip cookie dough flavors are my FAV.
Anyways, I’ve mentioned in the past that I’m a religious The Biggest Loser watcher, and this week Dolvett mentioned what a great snack LARABARs are, especially since there are so few ingredients in them! Healthy, whole foods, and delicious. They’re the bomb.
And since The Biggest Loser mentioned the Cherry Pie and Peanut Butter Cookie flavors, LARABAR has offered to give away TWO of each flavor to one of you.
Just leave a comment on this post to enter. That’s it. If you’re shy, feel free to just say Hey.
You have until Sunday night at 5:00pm to enter. Good luck!
Larabar contacted me and offered the giveaway with no compensation to me. I’m not even receiving these bars, just you are!
I’m a religious The Biggest Loser watcher. And the newest season is all about No Excuses. But I feel like all some of the participants do is make excuses, whine, and/or complain. Ugh, I was so annoyed last night. It’s such an amazing opportunity these people are getting – why would they ever waste it?? Obviously they know what they’re in for when they apply to be on the show. Do they really expect it to be easy?
So, anyways, today when I was on the treadmill whining to myself that my legs felt sluggish and tired I thought about all the excuses that had annoyed me while I was watching the show last night. And my mood immediately changed. I may or may not have even yelled out loud at myself during the last mile saying “Come on!”. I had somehow changed from a whiner to a bad ass just by thinking about how I didn’t want to be one of those people who make excuses. And proceeded to finish my 4 mile run with an average pace of 9:02 per mile.
That’s 3 runs in 3 days at a 9:13 pace or less. Do I dare say I’m making a come back?? Nahhhh…..not yet. I don’t want to jinx it. Not yet.
And the only reason I ran yesterday is because I saw this on the box of the Vega Sport protein products I have right now:
I saw this right after I had skipped my pool workout. Talk about timing. Even though I had missed my time frame to be able to swim, I had no excuse not to run (one of the
curses benefits of having a treadmill now). So I did it. And it was awesome. I was on a serious runners high after that run, too – I was grinning ear to ear for the rest of the night like a giant tool. I always feel so amazing after a workout, it’s a wonder to me why I ever skip one.
Anyways, when I mentioned to J that I wasn’t going to the pool he had a really great idea. He said I should give myself “x” amount of “Free Passes” when it comes to my workouts. I immediately fell in love with the idea. It’s a great compromise that will hold me to my workouts but also give me a little leeway when I’m just not feeling it.
So now I’m trying to decide how many “free passes” I should get. One a month? Two a month? No more than 2. And if I don’t swim like I’m supposed to, but I run instead, is that considered using one of the “passes”?
What would you do?
- One pass or two?
- Do you think swapping a workout should count as using one of the free passes?
