Say What?

January 28, 2011

Hip, hip, hooray for Friday!!

I have definitely been lacking motivation this week and have been feeling pretty depressed and irritable lately. I’m so glad the weekend is here!! πŸ˜€

I think this is the time of the year when people are really affected by the winter season–the holidays are over, the days are still short, and spring/summer seems a million miles away. (At least where I live. I know some of you are enjoying mild/warm temperatures–lucky!) Plus, after seeing my family this past weekend and having a blast with them, I’m coming off a high from that.

I miss running with my sister–even if it was below zero!

Over the weekend, my sister and I were talking about clothes, and we started talking about the brand Lululemon. I asked her how she pronounced “Lululemon.”

I had read Julie’s post last week, and like her, I thought for the longest time it was pronounced lulu-mon! As if I was Jamaican, but come to find out, it is pronounced lulu-lemon–like the citrus fruit and just like it is spelled!! Did anyone else think this?

This morning I got up at 5 a.m. and ended up cleaning (dusting, straightening things up) for an hour before going out for my run. . . issues?? Yes, probably. . .

I then busted out a 4-mile run. It went by quickly, and I love how loose and flexible my legs (especially my hips) feel after my 90 minutes of yoga last night!

New Products

A few new products I’ve recently tried . . . .

This Fruit 2 Day beverage was something my mom had at home, and I was more than happy to taste-test a new product!

The fruit juice contains real pieces (bits) of fruit and contains two servings of fruit in each bottle. The small pieces of pear mixed in with the juice were a nice addition to plain juice. It made drinking the beverage kind of fun!

I really liked the cherry-grape flavor, and the ingredients list was full of several kinds of fruits.

I would definitely drink this beverage, but I try to drink fruit juices in moderation since whole fruits are a better choice.

I really like Larabars and this flavor definitely ranks up there with my favorite flavors! How can you go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate?!?!

So chewy, delicious, and even good chilled!

I see a trend here. . . peanut butter + chocolate πŸ™‚

Loved this Odwalla bar–great flavor and nice and chewy but not too tough.

This evening I enjoyed some quality time with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. It was so good to catch up with her!!

Question

What are your plans for the weekend?

    1. This week hasn’t been an easy one here either. Today I have lots of school work to get caught up on. One that’s done, I’m off to Whole Foods for a little grocery shopping.

    1. I’m very impressed with your cold running! (I’m such a baby! Even though I should be used to it)
      I think I pronounced lululemon correctly, but was always a little confused and not sure I was pronouncing it right!! Ha!

    1. Peanut butter and choc. Lara bars are my fav!!!!!

      Today I had to work =( but tonight I am going out for dinner and drinks with my bf. Pretty uneventful haha!

      Have a great weekend!

    1. I always said it lulu-mon too until a few months ago when someone corrected me.
      You are seriously a rock star for running in that cold.
