So I've been off and on for the past couple of weeks. Bachelor party, new kitten, starcraft 2, taking down wallpaper in the kitchen, you name it - I have an excuse for it. I've been getting to the gym hap-hazardly every so often, but there's no turning back today. I packed my lunch with the extra punch I need to get in a meaningful workout and my gym bag is all ready to go. The only thing I need to do it show up, and the rest will fall into place. Sounds easy enough, right? *Right* says my inner self.
Food update. Because I have been trying to bulk up, I think I told everyone I was eating a 2nd powerbar a day. Yeah... bad move. Original powerbars are not, by any means, a good tasting product compared to what's on the market, they do have more optimal nutritional benefits for my build - more protein. And if you have tastebuds, I highly suggest you look into another product and pay the extra $0.59 per bar for something more flavorful. Luna (for the ladies), Cliff Bars, etc all should do the trick. However, I'm a cheap sonofabitch so I stuck with the $1.00 powerbars, and TWO-A-DAY are killing me, even the better tasting ones are starting to no longer appeal to me. Thankfully the other day I saw a different product for sale that was $1.00/bar. It's a HARVEST POWERBAR. And they are REALLY GOOD! I would put them even above other energy bars on the market. I would have never even tried it had they not been on sale, but I stocked up on 20 of them. So I will eat a regular powerbar in the morning and a harvest one before my workout. Plus I can feel good that nestle is still getting my money, since powerbar was purchased by Nestle back in 1996 or something for 375million dollars. (when will I come up with a product that will sell for 375mil?). And the best part, is the harvest powerbar has basically the same nutritional facts, so still high protein, lower carbs, low fat.
Okay I need to work now but, it's a happy day!
