Gloomy day, good mood

Hi all!

It’s almost the weekend! Yay! I have a few fun things planned for this weekend that I am looking forward to. Unfortunately, it’s supposed to be rainy and cloudy all weekend but that doesn’t put an end to my good mood today. I had a great treadmill session at the gym today. I am a wannabe runner but have no idea how to start plus I have back problems that I don’t want to come back if I start running but so far, so good. Here is my workout breakdown.

1-3 warm up at 5 mph
run 1 minute at 7 mph, walk 1 minute at 4 mph for 30 minutes
5 min cool down at 3.5 mph
all done with a 2% incline

I was nice and sweaty afterward but more importantly.. it was fun! I was watching tv the whole time. Me and Mr. TV are quite close, ha… Of course, I made sure to stretch, I believe that is the most important part of any of my workouts.

I was craving oatmeal like no other so for lunch I made savory oats. 1/2 cup oatmeal with a sprinkle of gruyere cheese with spinach, hot sauce and topped with 1 egg. It tastes so naughty but it’s not. Comfort in a bowl.

I went to Target this afternoon to scope out some Halloween decor and I couldn’t resist a grande 2 pump pumpkin spice latte while people watching, obviously… Am I weird? I hope not.

I seriously screamed with joy when I checked the mail and found a little box from larabar!!!! They heard my cry when I couldn’t find the new flavors anywhere.

Of course, I had to try one. I popped open the PB&J lara almost immediately after opening my package.

It was nothing short of delicious! My favorite lara… with peanut butter cookie close behind BUT it didn’t taste anything like a PB&J. A few hours later, I had a gala apple for an afternoon snack.

What is your favorite larabar flavor? What do you think of the new flavors?

  1. Favorite Larabar flavor = Cashew Cookie.

    The new flavors are pretty good, but I prefer the originals 😀

  2. I’ve never had a lara bar before! Crazy I know! Good work out to! You were lucky to be with your boyfriend in sweden though I’m all alone except for some family members I don’t know haha

    You’re right, we’re lunch twins 🙂

    I haven’t gotten to try the new laras yet, but Apple Pie is my current fave. I used to love cashew cookie but I got tired of it.

  4. I still need to try the new laras! I wish they would answer my call, haha!!

    oh…. I’m so jealous of your larabars!!! My favorite bar = anything that has chocolate! 😀

  7. I haven’t gotten to try the new laras yet – I’m having trouble finding them! I am glad you are feeling better 🙂

  8. I love the coconut cream pie larabars— so good! I’m jealous of your package of larabar goodness!

  9. My favorites are the coconut creme, cherry, and peanut butter cookie. I have the pb&j one…just need to try it!

  10. The PB&J all the way. I just bought the German Chocolate Cake flavor so I am excited to try it. The only drawback is that I think the PB&J bar seems smaller than others.

  11. I got those same Laras today! I am sad we don’t have PB&J around here, but I packed it for a snacky today.
