I’m glad you all are up for a P90X video recap I figured it would be a nice way to show you some of the program that you might not see on the infomercial. I’m making it this weekend, so stay tuned!
This morning I finally listened to my body, which has been screaming at me to sleep in all week long. With all that has been going on, I’ve been feeling the “pressure” – self-inflicted, of course – to wake up early and get my workout in, regardless of the time I went to bed the night before. But when the alarm clock went off this morning, I knew that wasn’t going to happen. I was actually quite proud of myself for resetting the clock for three hours later! Yes, three. When I sleep in, I sleep in.
It’s been a week of new products, and I am really enjoying all of them. The first is one that I’m a little behind on: Kerrygold Dubliner. I received a coupon for Kerrygold products as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program a while back and finally picked up some cheese. By the way, congrats to Foodbuzz on officially passing the 2,000 Featured Publisher food bloggers mark and becoming the 3rd largest food property online!
I had a serving of the cheese alongside a serving of Kashi crackers and some Progresso Southwestern-Style Vegetable soup for lunch today.
The cheese had a very distinct, strong taste. I’d relate it to cheddar, but there is also something about it that makes it its “own” Dubliner cheese, if that makes sense. Unlike any other I’ve ever tried. I really liked the flavor and would say it’s one of those cheeses that you could actually taste if you put it on a sandwich. Two thumbs up!
Another batch of new products comes courtesy of Katie from Sonoma Crisps.
These crunchy snacks contain high-quality fruit from California and Washington, and are baked slowly to preserve natural flavor. They are fat-free, natural, high in fiber and low in calories. So far, I’ve tried the Apple Sticks Cinnamon.
I loved the way they looked like dried fries
(Don’t mind the cuticles. I just clipped my nails!)
The taste was great! It had the sweetness of apple with just a hint of cinnamon. The small bag was actually quite voluminous – there were a lot of “fries” in there! All for only 70 calories, these make a great nighttime snack. Next time, I might try adding some almond milk and letting them get slightly mushy like cereal I think that would be good! Thanks, Katie.
Last but certainly not least, I was jumping up and down yesterday when this landed on my doorstep:
A couple of weeks ago, Karen from To Be the Whole Package posted a tweet that said she had an extra copy of Jillian Michaels: 30 Day Shred, and was wondering if anyone would be interested in a blogger exchange. I jumped at the opportunity because I thought it was a very creative way to get my hands on the DVD that everyone has been talking about (I want to compare it to P90X!) Plus, I got to send her something, too! She lives in Canada, so this was my first international exchange!
She really “delivered” 😉 Not only did I get the DVD, I also got some great Canadian goodies, including Maple Butter, Nature bars, peanut butter cups, a white chocolate maple leaf and a super cute polka dot bowl. Plus a very sweet card – thank you so much, Karen! This was such a great idea!
I dug into some of the white chocolate maple leaf this afternoon.
It was everything white chocolate should be!
I was just drinking a Kombucha and remembered that Bobby tried his first sip yesterday. Then I saw this hilarious video from Gina + The Pilot Let’s just say Bobby did not take another sip and looked at me like I was insane. Oh well, can’t win ’em all.
I hope everyone enjoys the first day of May. I’m kind of partial to this month. In fact, it’s my favorite. Let’s just say a certain someone will be turning the big 2-2 on the 9th! Sorry, I can’t contain my excitement 😉
