Today is gorrrrrrrrrrgeous out. Almost too gorgeous to spend the day in this office! Thanks for all your car support last night! I'm hoping everything turns out okay or else I'll have to flee the country and sell my body to afford the car repair. And I REALLY don't want that to happen...

For dessert I had 4tbsp of PB2 with some cinnamon sprinkled on top and a few Cheerios for a little crunch and then on the car ride to coaching I had a Nonni's Original Biscotti :)
This morning I hit the gym for a little leg workout and ate a banana while waiting for my car to heat up (I mean overheat). I ended up driving Van's car to the gym because the fear of overheating at 6AM on the way to the gym just wasn't worth it.
HerbaSway Creme Chocolat: SO good. Seriously put this in everything and anything I mean who doesn't want good for you calorie free chocolate that is hooked up with serious antioxidants?!
HerbaSway Blueberry: I put this in my water this morning and it was pretty good. I like the Peach flavor better and if you get used to the non sugaryness of it then its really a great addition to spruce up your water bottles :)
The only fail to these HerbaSway products is that they're expennnsive! Definitely not recession friendly fun. Sorry HerbaSway it's true!
Now on the other side SOYJOY was SO generous as to send me some samples of their bars! I had always been so interested in trying their products so when they offered to send me some samples I was completely excited about giving them a whirl!
I had the Strawberry flavored one yesterday for a snack after lunch and I was pleasantly surprised. Now although these bars are pretty small you would think that they wouldn't be substantial. BUT I wasn't even realllly hungry until dinner and even then I could have waited a little while longer. I definitely liked the Strawberry flavor better then the Mango Coconut even though it sounds like I should like the latter better but the Strawberry has a really nice flavor to it.
Now what's good about these products is that a lot of people with allergies and what not can have them! They're completely Gluten Free have 4g of protein, 3g fiber and 130 calories! I would definitely reccomend these bars as long as they hang in a not too expensive aisle of your local foodstore.
Okay SO question time: 1. I've been trying to gain more muscle and burn fat and get more definition. I always try and incorporate at least 3 days of weight training in my workouts but I feel like I'm not getting the definition and muscle tone and fat burn I want. Anyone out there have any recommendations!? 2. I want to get my personal training cert very soon and I want to know how long it takes, if it's a good investment, if you recommend getting the wellness/nutrition consult cert with it...all the goods on it...what organizations you recommend...what comes with it if you order online.. FILL ME IN PEOPLE!
Okay great! I hope everyone has a fabulous day OH and Deej tried her first Apple Pie Larabar this morning and fell in love & she bought me the Cashew Cookie one to try which will come some time after lunch. Very excited about that :)
