I feel like today has been a weird day. Not too sure why.
The week just seems off, I guess because of the holiday that was on Monday. Anyone else feel this way, or am I just crazy alone over here?
Anyways, here are some of my confessions from this week.
1. I’ve been to Starbucks every single day this week. I seriously can’t help myself.
The holiday cups put me in such a happy mood, I mean how can you resist those adorable cups? I’d like to blame the cups, but let’s just face the fact I’m an Americano addict.
2. I can’t stop using this Hempz Body Butter.
This stuff is just amazing.
Not only does it smell incredible, but it’s the best for moisturizing my sensitive skin.
As much as I enjoy products from the Body Shop, their products tend to not favour my skin too much.
This stuff leaves my skin nice and smooth, without irritating it.
3. After taking time off from my neck pain, I dived back into my workouts with this upper body workout.
I just about died after.
My arms are still in pain.
4. I’ve been eating these delicious coconut muffins again.
I can’t believe I forgot about these gems.
This also reminds me I need to make this strawberry goat cheese again, super tasty!
5. You guys, this is a real thing!
Sinless cocktail mixers. Not only are they low calorie, but they are sugar free and sweetened with stevia AND in holiday flavours.
I probably wouldn’t buy them otherwise, but simply because there is a holiday special makes me want them even more.
Why do companies always trick me this way? I’m probably a tad bit too excited about this.
6. I had buckwheat cereal for Breakfast and oatmeal for Dinner today.
I like carbs and breakfast foods.
7. Simply Bars.
A few weeks ago, the kind folks over at the Simply Bar sent me samples of their bars and protein chips.
Each bar is gluten free, vegan high protein and low glycemic. All bars are around 160 calories, filled with 16 g protein and only 3 g of sugar.
These bars to me, taste like a lighter version of a rice crispy square.
I was sent four of the flavors to try out. Lemon coconut, caramel peanut, peanut butter chocolate, and cinnamon.
Two flavours stood out to me the most: the caramel and the peanut butter chocolate. I’m not a fan of lemon in sweet things, so this was obviously not going to be a favorite of mine.
I was surprised at how full these actually kept me. Usually when bars are this low in calorie, I don’t get full from them easily.
Unfortunately, a minus for me was that they contain soy protein isolate (I should note the soy is non GMO). I try not to consume soy in large amounts, so these are great for days when I’m in a rush. But, I wouldn’t consume them daily.
I still say they are a good option if you are looking for a crispy like treat, but don’t want all of the sugar from a crispy square and would be more filling as well.
Since they are certified gluten-free, these would make a great energy bar option for people suffering from Celiac disease.

Hope you all have a fantastic Friday!
