On to my Monday morning – I went to sleep at 9:30pm, but was woken up by the phone around 11pm (someone, who will not be named, was still driving home from Vegas). I woke up at 5:45am – still super tired. I was pretty slow moving to get up, but finally got out the door for an easy 6 miler. My plan called for some sprints at the end, but that was a no-go today.

Breakfast was oats (the usual mix) topped with PB, raisins and granola. And an unpictured handful of cereal and grapes.dscn6763

Now I am guzzling coffee like it’s my job…See you later!

    Hmm…I’m going to be different and mention a childhood favorite, even though it’s completely HFCS-ridden! When I was younger, my mom would by the Tiger’s Milk bars, the chocolate-pb flavor. I wanted to mimic her and so I tried one…I didn’t care for it after 2 bites, so she got mad that I wasted one! Ah, memories… 😀

  2. Katie says

    I think my all time favorite bars are the dark chocolate cherry kashi bars. I tried one of the Quaker delight bars ago that I received as a sample in the mail and it was pretty tasty as well!

  3. Jess says

    I am actually the biggest fan of the Cinnamon Coffee Cake Kashi bars… but then again, I love anything and everything Kashi makes…

  4. says

    I never tried Quaker, we don’t have them where I live. But we have CORNY, which I assume is based on the same concept….chocolate flavour is the best!

  5. says

    I LOVE those new quaker bars too! I haven’t been able to find them in the stores, but i got samples and they ROCK!!! I MUST WIN THIS CONTEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Katie R says

    Although they are not the healthiest nor the most filling, I love the Quaker Chewy granola bars. Eating them, especially the oatmeal raisin and cookies ‘n cream flavors, reminds me of my childhood. We’d always eat granola bars on camping trips :)

    Oh, I don’t have a blog :(

  12. Wendy W says

  13. Laura E says

    Thanks so much for the opportuinty. That is a very hard question to answer! I would have to pick..the key lime pie larabar. I don’t have a blog, but would definitely link back if I did!!

  14. Laura E says

    Thanks so much for the opportunity! That’s a very hard question to aswer though! I would have to say the Key Lime Pie Larabar. I don’t have a blog, but would definitely link back if I did!!

  15. Laura E says

    So sorry for the double post!! I checked, and it didn’t show that it went through, but then it must have.

  16. Chelsea says

    I am so inspired by you! I am trying to lose weight while training for a marathon too! Thank you for this opportunity; i love all bars! Kashi, KIND, LARABAR, ect. = AMAZING!

  17. Annie says

    Ahh I would love this…thanks for the giveaway!

    My favorite bars are anything Kashi, or Clif, or Natures Path enviro kids if I want just a small snack…I kinda love all bars :)

  18. Brooke says

    I’m a fan of pure protein bars…although I try to only have them occasionally. No blog for me but I enjoy yours! thanks!

  19. Shay says

    I am a collegiate runner, so I rely on granola/protein bars quite frequently for quick, portable fuel. I have tried many many different brands and flavor combinations, but I’d have to say that it’s tough to beat Kashi. Their Honey Almond Flax flavor chewy bar is my bar of choice….and their new pumpkin flavor is also pretty killer!! I don’t have a blog or a website.

  20. Rae says

    Larabars….YUM!!! I wish they were a bit more filling, but they taste like an all natural cookie and I just cant resist :-)

  21. says

    This is so hard to choose from. I love the coconut cream pie larabars, and the cinnamon coffee cake kashi bars, and the white chocolate macadamia nut Luna bars. i really want some of the peanut butter flavors of bars to come back though.

    I am going to make myself a note to link back to this post when I write my blog tonight.

    Take care.

  22. catherine says

    I will try to name/suggest one that i like that is not already listed– think organic cashew pecan. :) i don’t have a blog.

  23. says

    My favorite bar, hands down, is the Peanut Butter Cookie LaraBar. I’ve just recently become comfortable (to an extent!) with eating bars over 200 calories and MY OH MY I will NEVER turn back!! =D

    Thanks for this giveaway! I always thank people because I think it’s SUCH a nice thing to do! It adds a little excitement and generosity to an already amazing BlogLand =]

    <3 Laura.

  24. Jacquelyn says

  25. says

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

    To my way of thinking, honest voting is the bedrock of our society. If Obama wants to pervert this ideal of America and send Acorn and union vote-stealing thugs into Massachusetts, he deserves to be shunned by decent society. Folks, for the last 12 months, Obama has walked with muddy feet all over our constitution like a man whos out to desecrate every word written on it. I hear tell that If a lie detector were attached to Obama when he took the oath of office, those lines would have been wiggling back and forth like a man on a fuzzy tree.

    A formidable share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little bit analysis on this. And he in actual fact purchased me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to debate this, I feel strongly about it and love reading extra on this topic. If doable, as you grow to be expertise, would you thoughts updating your blog with more particulars? It’s extremely helpful for me. Large thumb up for this blog post!
