It wasn’t even justifiable purchases – I got a massive box of Fiber One Brownies – a product I’ve never tried before (and normally would avoid!).
Yes, it’s kinda risky to buy 36 of something when you have no idea if it’s good or not. I figured I should try one right away to ease my mind. They are only half as good as Vitatops, but also cost only half as much so it kinda evens out?
After Costco I went to get my half marathon bib. I’m not super excited about this race (because I need a break) but this would be where I would do my solo run tomorrow anyways. I’m going to treat like a long run full of new friends that don’t want to talk to me.
Since I only realized the race is tomorrow this morning someone asked if I’d be carb loaded in time. Oh little readers, you know I’m always carb locked and loaded in case I’m going to die tomorrow.
I love eating salty carbs before a race and today I went with Orville SmartPop. It hit all my snack needs – crunchy, salty and a lot of it (I need volume when I’m a snack monster!).
I’m doing a partnership with Orville Redenbacher this month and will be speaking with their spokesperson Bernie from the Biggest Loser next week!
He has always been one of my favorites from that show! I think Bernie is adorable And he’ll be answering some RER reader questions via a vlog in two weeks! Please email or leave any questions for Bernie in the comments.(image source)
Disclaimer: Orville Redenbacher is compensating me for my Smart Snacking posts. But, I haven’t seen one single free kernel of popcorn. I always have that salty goodness on hand for snack attacks and all my opinions are my own.
