Thats right…it’s time to finally see what is inside of the mystery box!!!!!!! Who is excited?!?!
For starters, is is Monday…and boy do I know it.
Got up extra early and did some Power Pump’age at my other gym this morning, because quite frankly I am still feeling the guilt from the MASSIVE amounts of cake I consumed last night. (See my last post for all the gory details.) For those who haven’t taken or heard of Power Pump, it is a 60 minute class that works each muscle group for a period of time, usually 4 minutes, with a 1 minute break in between to change out equipment. This involves anything from decreasing/increasing weight, to switching from bar to dumb bell, etc. Great class, and a super way to get in your weight workout for the day.
Chugged my protein shake (half before…half after), and then headed to do Yoga with the kiddos.
I am loving this Yoga/Cardio sponsorship program through the YMCA and the local schools! School is almost over for them which is depressing. My Monday’s will feel so different without them!
Have I mentioned how much I missed these guys this weekend:
I promise…she’s not dead. She’s just comatose.
Needless to say at this point it was 8:30 and my body was in NEED of some breakfast. Enter my classic.
Chia-Oat-Goodness! This bowl was extra special and topped with my last (depression) blob of Trader Joe’s Almond Butter, and my new glorious Trail Mix I picked up at Fresh Market while in Georgia this weekend!
Chia oats are always, allllllways a big winner in my book. I nuked the nana ahead of time and got it nice and melty, then cooked it WITH the oats. Who needs to sweeten oatmeal when you have a banana!?!
After breakfast I collapsed into a mini coma, and woke up just in time to get my class together for my Lunch Sculpt class. Snacked on a classic as I dashed out the door..
2 pieces of millet toast, with homeade pumpkin butter….flax seed….and cinnamon
Yumminess. I’m not even sure if this snack made it from the kitchen to my car. That good!
Went and taught Express Sculpt and incorporated some new killer moves for the booty! Gotta love some pelvic thrusts, while back planking on a ball, with a weight on your hips!!! Sounds fun, yes?!?!
I was/am in desperate need of groceries and some basic items, but I was on a major time crunch…so I had to go to the Wal*Mizzle. I have to say, I was very proud of Wal*Mart today. Not only did they have a ton of great produce, but alot of it was on sale!!! Score!
The strawberries were $1.98 a carton, the mangoes were .98 each….and then I saw the items that literally produced a girl scream from my mouth WHILE in the store. I was that excited.
ALMOND BUTTER AT WALMART?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Did I mention these were $3.78 each?!?!?! I was literally in shock. Plus, I had never even SEEN the Dark Chocolate Spread!!!! So excited! Seriously, I think I almost lost it in the aisle. People were staring.
Seriously though, I was stoked at all my nice finds, and surprised!
Came home famished with lunch on the brain…
Threw together a veggie burger on Arnold’s Thin, with Laughing Cow Swiss, spinach, and some ketchup. Was also craving veggies like whoah, so I got to roasting the Sweet Potatoes and Asparagus.
Topped the veggies with nooch (nutritional yeast), and plated with some Veggie Pirate Booty (aka CRACK!)
Dessert was a serving (minus one) of my new Chocolate Cookies that Ashlei lovingly gave me! Sandwiched with raw honey goodness.
With a full belly, it was time to FULL DISCLOSE THE MYSTERY BOX!!!!!!!
Did anyone guess it?!?! Let’s see.
When the amazing people over at Endangered Species Chocolate contacted me, I could have pretty much exploded with blog-citement!!!! My favorite chocolate wanted to do a giveaway for my readers?!?!?! Seriously, amazing! They also may have sent me some to taste test as well. ;-)
Heres what the lucky winner will receive:

1.4 oz. Bars:
