Winner Winner Granola for Breakfast Lunch & Dinner!

April 18, 2011

Good morning!!

Guess what? I WON the Nuts About Granola contest! Well rather we won since JC from An Apple A Day and I both suggested the Mexican Hot Chocolate flavor. Once the company develops and creates the granola they are sending me a bunch to try. And since YOU GUYS helped me win, I see a giveaway in the future. Thanks so much!!


This morning I got my butt out of bed and hit the gym for a run. I wanted to run outside but the forecast said rain. Of course it didn’t actually rain, but I was happy to use the treadmill for some HIIT (high intensity interval training) anyway. I ran a total of 5 miles looking like this:

  •  9 minute warm up at 6.5 mph
  • 1 minute intervals from 8.0 up to 9.0 with 1 minute recovery at 6.7 in between
  • 2 more 30 second intervals at 9.0 with 1 minute recovery in between
  • 9 minute cool down at 6.5 mph

Those sprints were HARD! Next on the agenda was abs. I did a whole bunch of exercises and even threw in some leg and butt exercises for kicks. Perfect way to start my week.


I thought it was going to be gross and rainy today so I picked a casual comfy outfit. Either that or I didn’t feel like getting dressed up. You make the call.

Pants: Old Navy, Shirt: Old Navy, Scarf: H&M, Shoes: Sperrys



Since I’m leaving to go to Hilton Head on Wednesday I’m not doing any grocery shopping this week. That means I have no milk to make breakfast cookies or overnight oats, so oatmeal it is. You’ll also be seeing A LOT of bell peppers. For some reason the only produce in our fridge is bell peppers.

Stay tuned for a Monday Man-Day post on having “guy-friends”. Have a great day!!

    I always dread going out of town and the weird concoctions I have to make to get rid of food. Once I had a whole carton of eggs and let’s just say, not everything is good as a scramble!

    Yay! Congrats on the win! Sounds like a yummy flavor! And different!! Have a great time in Hilton Head!!

She started this company a few years ago an it’s truly amazing to see what she has become in the business world, especially as a young woman who is selling healthy and natural products. Congrats girl! I can’t wait to try your granola.

    Congratulations to our blog queen, Clare. You look amazing with that leopard-print scarf that surrounds your beaming face. Your white top really accentuates the boldness of the scarf’s print. In case anyone wonders, I think we should point out that no animals were harmed in any way to make that lovely scarf!

  26. April 18, 2011 8:28 pm

    Love your crops. You always have the cutest outfits!

  27. April 18, 2011 10:00 pm
