Hello! Before I get to the giveaway, I’ll bore you with last night’s workout:
Elliptical for one hour. Level 13 to 14, switching back and forth. I varied the incline from 4 to 16, as well as pedaling backwards. It was pretty fast hour of sweating and pushing the pace.
When the roommate and I got back, I also added on 15 minutes of Pilates for the lower body. I just do the same routine while I watch stuff on Netflix. It super duper mega burned in the hips and butt. I should really try to incorporate it more into my routine so I could have nice and strong hips that can help me keep good form while running.
Then I did about 12 minutes of yoga and 3 minutes of stretching. Dang. Down-dog= calves and hammies stretching for the first time in forever and ever. It was awesome. The stretching for the whole body was also needed. I need to incorporate these into my routine as well (which means more frequently than every three weeks).
Today, I’ll be running 1.5 miles in class, as well as doing a timed sit-up and push-up test.
That’s right. We have a fitness test in my kinesiology class. In fact, we were walking around the track and talking one day, and jogging around the track on another day last week. I love that class!
Okay. Now onto things that you actually care about:
I recently purchased a bunch of KIND Healthy Grain products by taking advantage of a Groupon deal.
It came in the mail after just a couple of days and I was so excited to after opening them up:
Look how cool that box is. It opens up and has two of each KIND of bar (8 KINDS!).
To the top left, you see the bag of KIND Vanilla Blueberry Clusters? I have SIX of those!
I like how it says “Ingredients you can see & pronounce”. They aren’t kidding! It has whole grains from brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, oats, millet, and buckwheat. Some of its sweeteners are blueberry purree, plum puree, and apple juice. It’s also got a good amount of flaxseeds, which is a source of omega-3’s and fiber. The bars have whole nuts in them, which I love love love.
So for this little giveaway here, I’m going to be giving away three bags of the Vanilla Blueberry Clusters and 6 assorted KIND bars.
– Comment on this blog post (tell me about a time that someone was KIND to you or said something KIND to you)
– OR Comment on my Facebook page (also telling me about a time someone was KIND to you)
– Extra entry if you follow me (or are currently following me. Just let me know in a separate comment)
I will choose a winner on 2/18/12.
[I was not compensated for this giveaway. I just really like the products and wanted to give some away to readers who like KIND products, too ;). Also, the bars contain nuts and the granola was made in a facility that uses peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and sesame seeds. <– for those of you with food allergies]
Good luck on the giveaway!
And I’ll be enjoying Mardi Gras at the Oracle Arena while watching the Golden State Warriors play the Houston Rockets tonight!
