The Best Valentine’s Face, Hyperice Winner and If You’re Going to Have a Bar


Taught a couple classes at the gym last night. One was a HIIT class. We started class with this circuit:


Twisted burpees (I got them from Kim’s blog post yesterday and they’re awesome)

Burpees with a quick hop forward and back in between each one

Switch lunge hops

Touch down jacks

Fast feet/down


(We do each move for about a minute and go through twice. Great little circuit you can do at home since you don’t need any equipment.)


Woke up to this face this morning.

Consider it my Valentine’s Day gift to you.

You’re welcome.



The Hyperice Giveaway winner chosen by is


Yay! Congrats Allie! Email me your mailing address and what product you want and I’ll send it along!


Speaking of winners, people who made donations for the STUFT 60 Challenge the random winners will be drawn today. So weird that this run was 3 weeks ago. Seems like forever.


The other week I was sent the new Cookies and Cream Quest Bar flavor to try out.

I was sent two bars and have been saving them for a special occasion. Well, I guess my drive to the gym last night was a special occasion. I couldn’t resist anymore.

Yep, it was just as good as I imagined. I can see what all the hype is about.

It’s definitely right up there with my other favorite Quest Bars flavors- chocolate chip cookie dough, double chocolate chunk and white chocolate raspberry.



Not sure if I’m taking a full rest day today or getting on the treadmill later and taking a full rest day tomorrow. We’ll see how the day goes. Weird because I like to have a definite plan, but today is just one of those days.


On a totally different note, I have a love hate relationship with LEGOS. They’re cool, don’t get me wrong, but they take forever to put together. (Here’s my masterpiece from yesterday. Yes I had to made two of the very same one.)

I can’t tell you how many times this darn truck has already fallen apart. I mean seriously. Can I glue it or something?

Right this very second in fact I have someone telling me I have to fix his truck. Lovely.

Gotta go.



Have you had the new cookies and cream Quest Bar?

Thoughts on LEGOS. Love them or hate them?

Favorite Valentine’s candy.

    I have NEVER had a Quest Bar, but have wanted to try one for so long now! They are just so expensive I can’t make myself buy them right now. Oh and I love that workout! I need to try those burpees!

    Just saw the new Legos movie last weekend. It’s a cute movie. You should take your boys to see it, it will answer your question about glue, lol.

    The other horrible thing about Legos- stepping on them barefoot. No fun! Happy Valentine’s Day!! <3

    I have seen the quest bar everywhere but have not tried it. I’ve had a hard time with quest bars. I just didn’t seem to ever find one I loved. Though Cookies N’ Cream is tempting! I have never tried to bake them like many people I have seen do, so that is something I want to try in the future!

    My son never fully got into the LEGOs which was just fine by me for the same reasons you have! lol. And I couldn’t handle the mess of pieces everywhere. We attempted a few sets but never really did much with them. I loved them as a kid but not as much as Barbie of course….Now what I can’t stand, and thankfully your boys are still too little, are the darn rainbow loom bracelets because I have every color rubberband all over the floors of my house and my car.

    Legos – one day I will do a little video of our Lego world (even still at the age my boys are!). Just wait till you have the ones that are 500+ pieces and then it breaks because kids want to play with toys not just put them together – good times!!!
    I prefer a special Valentines Day cocktail of some sort to candy!!

    Used to be obsessed with legos! Heard the new movie is great though (:

    I like legos unless I’m stepping on them. Then legos and I are not friends.

    Pretty much any kind of chocolate is the best valentine’s day candy.

    uhhhhh….legos are my downfall. I have one son that can put them together all by himself and always has a great time. My other son never wanted to follow the directions and wanted to build his own thing. They are actually starting to grow out of them and it is time for me to start getting rid of some of them. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Legos are the ups and downs of boys…..they so want the huge jet wing fighter….they can even put it together with out much help and then when its finally done one “zoom” around the room and the wing falls off….ugggggghhhhh!!!

    So the cycle begins…..make it, break it, make it, break it….etc…until finally its all in pieces and the realization that 3 smaller fighters can be made out of the one big one is just as cool wins! Whew!

    I miss the old legos- a big tub of random blocks that only required actual imagination to build stuff with. I couldn’t figure out why my daughter wasn’t a fan until I actually looked at the kits she’d gotten for her birthday and realized they were all designed to make just one thing.

    I thought you gave the quest bars up because of the nasty ingredients.

    I want to take all of your gym classes!! (And on another note we have all of the same favorite Quest bars :) Clearly great minds think (or taste? alike)

    And I totally agree on the Legos.. so cool but when I volunteer at a daycare and have 27 requests to make an airplane and a Batmanmobile I want to kill whoever made all of those instructional booklets

    The cat pic always cracks me up!!!! We have grandkids that love legos & are masters at them – I am useless with them! ;)

    I have yet to try the new Quest bar – need to find it!

    Happy weekend to you!

    the new quest bar is wayy too addicting. i already went through a box..

    I love legos. Well my son loves them. I recently bought him the police helicopter, and seriously kept him busy for days. He’s almost 6 and a good thinker, so it was OK for his level. Yes, some of the pieces kept coming off, especially in corners, but overall a great toy.

    That is a great looking Lego monster truck! I actually love putting them together. Playing with them? Not so much. I’ve had a few quest bars and I haven’t fallen in love with them… yet. But that cookies and cream flavor sounds and looks amazing!

    Love pic of Kitty. Looks like he/she is doing his/her job, waking you up for feeding time? Look at the determination mixed with love and concern on that adorable cat face :)
    I just bought some Quest bars at GNC. They were on sale. I have a hard time finding low sugar low carb items that don’t contain inlin or sugar alcohols. They really do a bad thing to my gut. Maybe theses will be ok. The ingredients looked ok. I am more and more needing to just make my own food from scratch.
    I love seeing your recipes, I get inspiration not just from food, but running, working out and overall healthy lifestyle.
