New Goals + LARABAR Giveaway

Today’s lunch wasn’t really a lunch at all, but more like a snack plate:


I haven’t snacked my way through lunch in quite a while!

I ate these snacks about an hour apart – first the veggies and hummus:


Then the star of the show – avocado wraps, which was just sliced avocado wrapped in organic turkey slices:


SO good and simple.

And third was Greek yogurt, raspberries, and granola:


What you don’t see is the cup of coffee that I snuck down to the café here at work to grab before my 11:00 meeting. Thusly, I broke up 2 cups of coffee/day rule. Damn. Well, there’s always tomorrow!

But really, that was last week’s goal. I’m still carrying it over and trying to make it a habit, but I have two new boot camp goals for this week:

  • Foam rolling after each workout
  • Drink 3 of these dirty jugs full of water every day


The first one’s going to be a toughie. Tina, you might not see as many check marks from me this week, but I’m gonna try my hardest! Open-mouthed smile

What you also don’t see in my snack plate is my larabar that I saved to eat on the way from the office and to the gym before training a few clients tonight, which brings me too…

LARABAR Giveaway!

My pal, Annie, at larabar offered me to do a giveaway for a chance for one reader to win some tasty larabar snacks.


One reader will win 2 Cherry Pie and 2 Peanut Butter Cookie Larabars. If I had both cherry pie and peanut butter larabars right now, I think what I would do is take half of each, combine them, heat them up in the microwave and then put them in some greek yogurt for PBJ yogurt. But that’s just me. And I digress.

Anyway, all you have to do to enter is leave a comment below telling me what your afternoon snack was/is going to be today, and I’ll randomly pick the winner by tomorrow afternoon’s post (2 pm central time-ish.) This giveaway is open to US residents only.

Have a fab Tuesday, ya’ll!

What’s your afternoon snack today?

What’s your favorite deli meat?

    I LOVE larabars, esp when traveling! I really like your idea of half and half with yogurt, mm!

    My afternoon snack today was a clif z-bar and some almonds/raisins…but I wish it were a larabar!!!!

    • Nov05 I have learned many imnratopt things through your post. I will also like to mention that there can be situation in which you will apply for a loan and never need a co-signer such as a U.S. Student Support Loan. However, if you are getting financing through a traditional loan company then you need to be able to have a cosigner ready to assist you. The lenders are going to base that decision on the few factors but the most imnratopt will be your credit worthiness. There are some financial institutions that will likewise look at your job history and make up your mind based on that but in most cases it will depend on your scores.

  49. my snack today was a homemade pumpkin chocolate chip muffin & some yogurt & blueberries

  50. My afternoon snack is almonds and an apple

  51. Yesterday I was in a rush so my snack was a cheese stick, and a mini blueberry Larabar I had left over from a race. I’ve never thought to heat them up and put them in yogurt…. sounds pretty good!!!!

  52. Ashley M says:

    I had an apple with almond butter for snack. I love Larabars, especially the cherry and apple pie. As for lunch meat, it would have to be a roasted turkey but very thinly shaved (I have lunch meat texture issues) and I have to eat it in the 1st 2 days. Go figure!

  53. I am a big fan of Greek yogurt with blueberries, cinnamon and dash of stevia. Oh, and almost. Gotta have crunch.

  54. Jill Weber says:

    I had an apple with almond butter. Yum!

  55. I have a bag of veggies (carrots, celery, cucumber) and a hardboiled egg to snack throughout the afternoon!

  56. veggies and cottage cheese mixed with salsa…sounds weird, tastes AMAZING!

  57. i don’t like deli meat but i love snacks! apples and peanut butter!

  58. I have a hankering for an old fave for a snack today — fritos and cottage cheese — don’t judge 😉

  59. I’m going to have a piece of some pumpkin protein bars that I made- recipe courtesy of Jamie Eason!

  60. i tend to kind of graze all day, but my snacks usually include fruits and veggies, yogurt, or mini “wraps” using small whole wheat tortillas :)

  61. Really when someone doesn’t be aware of then its up to other people that they will help, so here it occurs.
