Lara Bar Giveaway!

January 19, 2011

Happy Wednesday!

I slept really well again –this whole psuedo “cleanse” thing is working wonders. Maybe it really was just that little bit of caffeine in the morning? My systems seemed to be working better (ahem) and I left for yoga feeling super light with no bloating!

Yoga was fantastic too. I lose ssoooo much flexibility during race training and even though it is sometimes painful, getting a deep stretch in a couple of times a week is awesome.



Oh, and for those of you that asked, the blush I use is Bobbi Brown in Pale Pink. It looks SUPER bright in the container, but works when it’s on!


Breakfast was hot lemon water & oatmeal again. I made a pretty design in the bowl for you though:)

And since our big sales meetings start today, lunch will actually be provided for the rest of the week. When I first started working, I felt obligated to eat what they brought, but now that people know me and my food habits better, I don’t worry about bringing my own meals. Especially this week when I’m being extra picky, I don’t want to try to scrounge a meal out of the sides salads that come with sandwich or pizza entrees. Instead, I packed up some pre-made brown rice & barley, pre-baked tofu, and some steamed broccoli. I dressed the meal with balsamic and olive oil.

I have another seminar at work tonight and dinner is provided, so hopefully there are options for me. If not, I brought some veggies and hummus and can eat something more substantial when I get home!



Dying to try one of the blueberry muffin Lara Bars that I reviewed yesterday? Well luckily they sent me more than one and I have two to give away to readers! There will be two winners, and each will receive a blueberry muffin Lara Bar and probably some other goodies in the mail:)

There are four ways to enter:

  1. Leave a comment telling me the funniest joke you’ve ever heard
  2. Tweet about this giveaway, then leave a comment telling me you’ve done so
  3. Link back to this giveaway on your blog, and then leave a comment telling me you’ve done so
  4. Buy me a plane ticket to Tampa

Anyone that does #4 automatically wins. I’ll pick the winner on Saturday, and then let you guys know so you can send me your address. Good luck!

Now let’s here those jokes!

    This is actually kind of a bad one but in Bicentennial Man, Robin Williams makes this joke. A woman goes to the doctor and he asks if he may numb her breasts. She says that he may. He goes “nom nom nom nom nom”. haha maybe it’s only funny to me 😉

    Here’s a joke:
    A little olive is crossing the street and he gets hit by a car. A bystander asks, “Are you okay?” and the little olive replies, “Ol-live.” (I’ll live). Super cheesy, but I think it’s cute!

    Wait I am so bad with jokes..hold on I will make one up JUST FOR YOU.

    A grasshopper walks into a bar, and orders an interesting combination of flavors. When questioned, he has the others try the drink. The owner of the bar says he will name the drink after the grasshopper, so he replies, “You’re going to name the drink Bob?”.

    Okay, I lied I didn’t make that one up! Haha but think about that one for a minute, it took me a little to realize why it was funny:)

    A redneck walks into a bar. The bartenders comes up and asks “Whats the name of your penis?” the redneck says “I’m not into any of that stuff, I just want a drink.” “I’m sorry but I can’t serve you ’til you tell me the name.” Mine is ‘Nike’ as in ‘just do it’ that guy there calls his ‘Snickers’ cause ‘it really satisfies.’ Get it?” The bartender asks a guy next to him “What do you call yours?” Times. It takes a licking, keeps on ticking.” He asks another guy and is told, “Chevy, like a rock!” He thinks for a second and says, “Hey bartender my penis is named ‘Secret’ now get me a beer!” The bartender asks “Why ‘Secret’?” “Because it’s ‘strong enough for a man but its made for a woman!”

    I hope you’ll also accept this rap as a contest submission. Here’s mine.

    I read a pretty cool blog called Fitting It All In.
    It contains good information to help us all win.
    Learn about food, fitness and doing a full-time job.
    There must be enough readers to form a good-sized mob.

    Imagine what we could do if we all toed the line.
    We’d melt off the fat and be looking mighty fine.
    Never thought I’d get tips from a source called Skinny Bitch.
    But I now have ideas about behaviors I might want to switch.

    There is no pressure to adopt any big changes at all.
    No one is going to bust your chops with a phone call.
    If this rapper’s street cred is a gift that I can bestow.
    I urge our marathon-training blog queen to go, girl, go!

    This was actually a pick-up line I received while doing arms at the gym on Tuesday night.

    Guy: “Did I meet you last night?”
    Me: “I don’t think so, sorry.”
    Guy: “Must have seen you in my dreams then”.

    …. and on that note, I really want to try the new lara 😉

    An old couple is sitting in church one morning, listening to a sermon, when the wife whispers, “I just let out a silent fart. What should I do?”

    Her husband whispers back, “Well, for starters, you can put a new battery in your hearing aid.”
