Pedicures, Garukabars, and a Mini Workout

I spend my lunch breaks at work doing one of these two things:

1. Working out


2. Getting pedicures with the girls

Yesterday was a pedicure day!


I’m jealous of people that actually have toenails.

For lunch I tried out my free sample of Garukabars. Go to their website and you can get one for just $1.00!


The bar is hand made with whole peanuts, dried cranberries, and raw honey and it was very tasty. I really liked the consistency because it was softer, Rice Krispie treat-ish, and not as dense as other bars. One bar has 260 calories and 10 grams of fat, so I ate half yesterday and I look forward to eating the other half this afternoon. Another great thing about Garukabars is that part of the proceeds to to the International Gorilla Conservation Programme. 🙂

After work I ran a few errands…the jewelry store to pick up my ring, the bank, and the Lube Center (yes, that is what it is called) for an oil change. This place is awesome…my car was ready to go in 10 minutes and they set my clock to the correct time. For the last 5 months I’ve been adding 2 hours and 22 minutes to figure out the correct time.

Since I wanted to get home to this beautiful girl…


… I did a very quick workout. I hopped on the elliptical for 30 minutes and then did some push ups and abs.

I got home and made dinner…meaning I put the Amy’s frozen pizza in the oven and microwaved the steam fresh Brussels sprouts. :-). This pizza has cheese and pesto on it and it is really good.


Today is a rest day because tomorrow is the Zooma Annapolis Half Marathon!!

Do you like pedicures? I have a friend who feels weird about them and I think it is so strange ;-).

Are you good at tapering for races?
