Gratitude Monday, Quest Bars, Arctic Zero, Lemonesse & More!

Monday March 31, 2014




Welcome to Gratitude Monday. Each Monday, stop by & comment on what you are grateful for & how it will impact you to live a healthier life going forward. How it impacts you does not have to be food or exercise related. It can be in any way, shape or form! If you just want to write a grateful comment & nothing else, that is fine too. If your comment is the same as another one, so be it. Everything goes here.

Had a nice weekend! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen the pics below & above. The one above was at an Anaheim Ducks event at Whole Foods Saturday. Of course I had to take a pic by the cookies!!!! Do those cookies make my arm look big??? Yes, I am wearing a YMX top. NO, I did not work out before or after!!! This is the way I roll.

More pics from the Anaheim Ducks event at Whole Foods. FUN! My grandson posted on FB that my hubby was jealous of WildWing the mascot!


I posted about this organic lemon water on my FB page. This guy was hit by a drunk driver & it changed his life forever! Check out his Kickstarter campaign. I was able to get a bottle for free. It really tastes like lemon water! I had it both out of the bottle & in a glass & it tastes the same! I NEVER get lemons out in restaurants! If you have seen some of the news stories that show how many hands AND contaminated knives touch those lemonsdon’t get cut lemons at restaurants!!!

pledge. Shipping included!




THANK YOU to Arctic Zero for this care package! OMG – love them all!!!! This stuff is so delicious!!! The Orange Cream – creamsicle flavor – LOVE. Can’t wait till they release it in a pint version. It is in a bar version now. They also have coconut & sea salt caramel coming out soon. I tried both at ExpoWest – friggin amazing!!!!


So, if you saw my post on this, I thought I won ONE box of these as part of an Instagram giveaway. TEN boxes showed up!!! OMG! I will be sharing with family/friends & maybe a giveaway coming up! THANK YOU Quest!!! These are pretty tasty. I liked them more the 2nd & third time I tried them. All these bars to me are better heated up but they are great as is too. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough & White Chocolate Raspberry are still a couple of my faves along with a few others. I prefer the ones without the sugar alcohols cause sugar alcohols bother my tummy (bloat me) so I have to eat in small bites. The ones without sugar alcohols I can eat more at a time.


Another fun top from Fabletics!!! They have been great in sending me some of their newer items to test & review! I LOVE this topIt has bra inserts but they worked great
for my hard core cardio. I am usually not a fan of inserts but tested & in
this top, stayed put! Look at the cool asymmetrical straps, front & back.



Last but not least – the beauty of the weekend!


So much to be thankful for as always!!!!!

How was your week & weekend? What are you thankful for today?

  8. Yoojin, Another WF cookie lover!!! If you go to the Quest site, they will show you which ones have the sugar alcohols. The others use sucrulose & some don’t like that either but it is all individual. I eat the sugar alcohol ones too but in small bites at a time over a couple days or so – not all at one time

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!
