Lunch, Bumble Review, Spaghetti Squash

Working from home is so great! I started my work day at 6 am! I got tons done and took a break around 10 to take Body Pump. The gym was filled with hot mamas! It was a totally different environment from the afternoon. These ladies were spunky and serious about their fitness! After a great workout, I came home and started back to work. For lunch, I had hummus with pretzels and carrots (I had a few more pretzels than what is shown here) and a chobani (blueberry is my FAVORITE!!).


Later in the afternoon, I gave the cherry chocolate bumble bar a try (based on Heather's advice):

I was a little nervous after yesterdays experience but can I say WOW! This flavor blew me away! You can really taste the cherries and chocolate (non-dairy)! It was WONDERFUL! I cannot wait to buy another one of these bars for Josh to try because I know he will love it.
Ingredients:Organic agave syrup, Organic sesame seeds, Organic cherries, Organic non-dairy chocolate*, Organic flax, Organic almonds, Organic coconut, Organic cocoa powder, Organic cherry flavor, Organic chocolate extract, Natural Vitamin E for freshness, Processing agents: Organic safflower and/or sunflower oil



After work, I had loads to do around the house. For din din, I made spaghetti squash. I topped it with spaghetti sauce and ground turkey.



On a side note, I won a contest last week from the Fit bottomed girls (they are AWESOME!!). Today I received my prize!! I cannot wait to try out this video!!




How was your Tuesday? Are you counting down the days until the weekend ;)?

nice gym observation- my gym is very similar- the "hardcore" fitness peeps are there 7-12 am, 2-4...

oh tuesday... it was good-class, acsm info, job application, and jeff plays hockey and i usually watch all my silly shows.

I love that you ask about everyone's days- its so genuine!

oh and great that you enjoyed the chocolate cherry- When I first got the samples, that was the first one I tried..http://runlmo1.blogspot.com/2008/12/bumble-bar-surprise.html

I was going to send the rest to Heather... but she got her own sample!

I enjoyed it as well but was hoping for a less sesame flavor... i never realized what a strong flavor that is!

lborg said...

I've been wanting to try spaghetti squash and haven't yet ... yours looks quite tasty!

Yeah, I'm glad it's at least not raining here though I think it might be supposed to snow tomorrow, ha, so I don't know which is better. And, yes, I'm counting down the days! : )

Marissa said...

I am so jealous you got to work from home today! I am 100% (maybe more ha ha) counting down to the weekend!

So glad you got the DVD. Can't wait to see what you think of it! :)

Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) said...

Sounds like a wonderful work day from home. I know you love those!

I agree - the chocolate cherry Bumble Bar looked like the best one from Heather's reviews. Good to know you liked it so much. Definitely planning on buying one next Whole Foods trip.

Spaghetti squash - one of my favorites. Love those things.

Can't wait to hear all about your bootylicious workout! Happy Wednesday Erica!

Maria said...

I would love to work at home, I could stay in my pj's all day..ha!
Glad you liked this bar better!! The spaghetti squash looks tasty! I love that stuff!

I am definitely working for the weekend this week.
I'm so jealous you have blueberry chobani! I can never find that flavor here!

Aggie said...

I have a spaghetti squash sitting on my counter...I want to make it just like you did! mmm....

Jen (Running with Food) said...

Hey cutie pie! Thanks for the Bumble Bar review!

I'm loving your pretzels ... I love the really hard kind - they have more chew to them. Also, your dinner looks really great.

Have a good one!

lauren said...

How often do you work from home? Mainly because I have been thinking of a way to approach my boss about working from home 1-2 days a week. My job duties would allow that, but I just need to ask.

Hilary said...

that video looks fun! You'll definitely have to let us know how it is!!

The Blonde Duck said...

Tell me how you like that video! It looks great.

I love that spegetti squash. Yum!

Ben made fajitas, so I didn't have to cook. Score!

Melissa said...

Awesome, let us know how the video is!!

Pretzels and Hummus....that sounds REALLY good, why haven't I tried that??

biz319 said...

Yeah for working from home! Luckily my hubby does too - considering he's been home bound from his knee surgery since December 27!

Hopefully I can get him out this weekend!

LOVE LOVE spaghetti squash - reminds me that I need to pick some up!

Diana said...

Oh yum! I'm glad the second Bumble experience was better than the first! I love the name - Bumble Bar! Alliteration is the best! :)
