A dash to WF

I had a delima today. During work I kept thinking about whether I should go for a run after work or go to the fancy gym. The weather was perfect for a run. But I also had to figure out what I was going to fix for dinner tonight, because that played a part in my decision also. If I go for a run then it's an egg white sandwich for dinner. But if I go to the fancy gym it's Whole Foods salad bar for dinner. Whole Foods is down the street and I could also pick up some other things I needed.

Well the salad is always the decision maker, and always wins.

I got a salad but after coming home and eating it I realized it just wasn't up to par. That's when I realized why, I was missing some key salad ingredients. Where were the hemp seeds, cranberries, soy nuts, nutritional yeast, it was all missing.

I was hot and sweaty after the gym so I was doing the mad dash, I'm so uncomfortable, and so embarrassed, and sporting a zipped up hoody on a hot afternoon kind of thing. I was hurrying and didn't get the things that really pull this salad together. Oh well I ate it and enjoyed it just the same, but was a little disappointed.

While getting some other things I needed at Whole Foods I found one of the newest Larabras. I almost couldn't contain myself and bought 5 of them. I'm not even sure if I will like them but I just had to get lots of these coveted bars. I'm taking two to a friend who will be equally excited.

I packed one as a snack for tomorrow at work, it better live up to my anticipation.

My workout at the fancy gym included abs along with some grueling leg exercises and followed by HIT on the stairs. That's why I was a sweaty mess after the gym and had to blast the AC to cool off before going to Whole Foods.

I know you guys can relate. Anyone else ever had to make a stop after a workout and was all sweaty. Just want to make sure I'm not alone.


  1. Ugh! I hate running errands after the gym. Totally can relate, girlie. I always feel like people are staring at me--not only am I all bundled up in 90-degree heat, but I look like I jumped in a pool. The extra layers only add to the sweat dripping from my face! :) The WF salad bar is soooo worth it though! That tofu looks delish!

  2. I love picking up lunch or dinner at Whole Foods... I always get a ton of different things!

  3. wow, these Larabars are everywhere! totally jealous i haven't found them in Australia yet.

  4. Thanks so much for sharing the Larabar love! Looking forward to trying it out tomorrow!
