Another busy ME day! Goodies! and Brad’s In the Raw Winner

Sorry that I left you yesterday, it’s been such a busy week and I just needed a day to breathe!  Thankfully I got one yesterday!  It was a full ME day 🙂  It never really works out like this, but Sara didn’t go to school on Monday and the director of her preschool is awesome about letting me bring her on a different day if she misses, so she went!  Sara was beyond thrilled to go to school and I had a day to catch up!

I went to Bikram in the morning which was wonderful. I typically go on Sundays and the class usually has 30 plus people but in the middle of the week it’s under 10!  It gives me he chance to work on my form and get a little extra help!

Afterwards, I treated myself to an awesome mani!  I’ve been sitting on this gift card for over a year because and I finally used it!  I went to Mario Tricoci and really enjoyed myself.  It’s about double what I would usually pay for a manicure but certainly nice when you get it as a gift!

I met my friend for lunch at In the Raw, our favorite new place and of course it didn’t disappoint.  Lunch was all about catching up and not taking pics of my food but if you live in the Chicagoland area I highly suggest you visit this restaurant!  Everything is so tasty!

I had time this afternoon to get things done so I headed over to Costco to stack up on my Mary’s Crackers. They are back on sale!  So cheap just over $5 a box!  I think we are good for a bit!

Holy cow, and these boxes weren’t light!  I had no idea what was in then until I opened them up!

A massive supply of goodies from the ZOOMARUN Sponsors!  Wow!  I think we are good on Muscle Milk and Cytomax for awhile.  I’ve actually never heard of Cytomax.  Have you?  They also sent some chews that I’m excited to try during my next long run. Speaking of ZOOMA!  The race ambassador page was posted yesterday on their website.  I’m thrilled to be part of the Chicago team and am looking forward to getting to know all of these fantastic ladies.

Chobani also sent me a package love!  I can’t wait to try the Flips.  I can’t seem to find them at the stores around here.  I’m most excited about the key lime!  If I wasn’t so full from our amazing lunch I would have busted into them right then in there but I restrained myself!  Sara, on the other hand was all about it as soon as she got home from school!

For dinner, I made this recipe that I found in Runner’s World!  It was SOOO good!  Highly recommend it if you are looking for a filling and protein packed meal!  Awesome flavor.

I’m excited that the weekend is here but I’ve got work things going on all weekend so it will be a busy one!  Anyone got good plans for the weekend?  The weather is still crummy here and I am so tired of it!

The winner of the Brad’s Kale Chips is #337 Julie Ruamthong!  Congrats Julie, I can’t wait to hear what you think of Brad’s amazing kale chips!  Don’t forget about the 25% promo code(fitrunningbrad) that you can use all month long.

Have a great weekend!  I’ve got lots of giveaway still to come!  I just need to get them all together.

  8. I love ME days! I am in desperate need of one. I have been wanting to try a bikram class but my work schedule is a little prohibitive right now. I love going to hot yoga during the week when things are calmer.
