Another Day & Winners

Today was pretty uneventful. Normal food all the way around.

I went to the gym and had another great workout. I love it when I'm not looking forward to a workout, I force myself to go anyways, and end up loving it. I had 25 minutes on the elliptical, 30 minute abs, 10 minutes rowing, and 10 minutes on that other machine. Then, I was off to the grocery store.

I buy more of my stuff at Winco (it's just so dang cheap), and I buy special foods at Whole Foods. Whenever I walk into Winco, I start to feel a headache coming on and try to rush as fast as I can to hurry up and get out of there. I was still irritated by the time I got to Whole Foods, but I became relaxed so fast. People were nicer and it's a much better environment. I wish I could afford to buy everything there.

After I got home and unloaded everything, I started dinner. I wasn't that hungry, so I just had mashed potatoes and green beans (my favorite). If I could, I would eat this everyday (and I would be 100 pounds heavier).

I used Earth Balance for the butter in the potatoes. My first reaction was that it was so crumbly. It didn't scoop out like I'm use to with other brands. I'm very happy to report, it tasted just like the other stuff. It didn't taste "too healthy" (if you know what that means). It's some pretty good stuff! I can't wait to use it for my baking feast Friday!

My dessert was Seeds of Change chocolate with whole oats inside. It tasted just like some chocolate from when I was a kid. It brought back so many memories.

Look at all those oats. Such GREAT chocolate (and I've been to Belgium and had their chocolate)!!

Ok, enough torture, on to the winners. The 3 lucky winners of the Inperspire towels are:
Kovas Palubinskas
Andrew Opala
You have 48 hours to email me (runnersfuel[at]hotmail[dot]com) your address and which towel you would like (if you do not claim your prize, I will go back to randow.org and see the other winner(s) are). Congrats to you guys and thank you everyone for entering. I have another giveaway up my sleeve and will be out there soon! Keep reading...


  1. Congratulations, Andrew, Kovas, and Marlene! I'm envious. Guess I'll keep wiping my sweat on my sleeve :)

  2. That bar looks DELICIOUS!

    And I sooo wish we had Whole Foods here.

    Yahoo!!! Thank you! I am SOOO excited. Some people I run with have started carrying a towel on their belts to wipe down mid-run. This will be perfect!! Also good to keep in the car for a quick wipe-down after a shorter run. I'll email you!

  3. The chocolate bar looks really yummy right now as I'm stuck at work with my apple. :/
