First: I picked a random winner for the Love Grown Foods granola giveaway! The winner is Bianca, who said, “I’ve heard so many good things about Love Grown Foods but have still yet to try it! My perfect breakfast would be the Cocoa Goodness granola with some chocolate almond milk on a bright but cool weekend morning. It sounds like the perfect pre-run or pre-workout fuel!” Well, congrats to you, lady! I’ll e-mail you later today to get your address.
So the picture above? Is of my lunch. (Via Instagram — follow me at RachWilks!) I’ve been noticing lately that a lot of bloggers post pictures of their food. Is this some kind of a trend?
OK I’m kidding…I used to take more pictures of my food and talk about my workouts in my “Lemme Work It” posts back when I blogged on Shedding It & Getting It (oh it feels like so long ago!). I wanted to be like all the other healthy living blogs, but these days, I do mostly storytelling and mindcasting over lifecasting. And swearing and sexing. And, honestly, I eat a lot of the same stuff and don’t work out quite as often as I used to. On the other hand, I kind of miss telling you how my day was.
So today you might have seen something like…
Last night I did Core Fusion Cardio on Yoga Vibes in my new workout shorts from Target. I had heard via the comments of this Eat, Drink, Run post that they are an amazing replica of the Lululemon Groove short and I decided to pay the $17 to find out. They are! Knockoffs FTW!
For lunch today I ate Greek yogurt with Love Grown pecan granola and blackberries and peanut butter [picture] and bacon on the side. While scarfing it down, I watched the puppies engage each other in what I’ve dubbed ‘Bonermania.’ I’m so excited they are getting neutered this week — Googling “my dog has an erection” isn’t my idea of a good time.
Back in the office, we tried to call a new badge we were creating the Stop! Collaborate and Listen award, but one of the bosses didn’t get it. This led to a fun few minutes on YouTube as we played Vanilla Ice’s hit and proved that everyone under the age of 30 knows all the lyrics by heart.
Tonight I’m going to think about working out, and pretend like I’m going to take a walk outside, but it’s probably going to still be 90 degrees at 8:00, so I’m going to count chasing Charleston and Indiana around for two hours after work wearing yoga pants as cardio and just watch Franklin & Bash (in my yoga pants, because it makes me feel athletic).
Yay or nay? On the one hand, lifecasting can get super boring, I don’t work out that often, and I’m never going to photograph all my food (even though with Instagram I can make it look more special! Like I ate it in the 1970s!). On the other hand, funny little things happen to me quite often and more lifecasting would mean I could post a bit more.
I don’t know…you tell me!
