Last night was the kick off to walking club! We had a sunny and windy night at Lake Como in St. Paul, and it was a great time.
Cindy, Sam, Erin, Kelly and I all walked around the lake (1.65 miles officially) and enjoyed the nice Sunday night. Afterward, Cindy brought some refreshing Popsicles for all of us to enjoy, thanks Cindy!!
On May 16th, we'll be meeting for our second meet up at Centennial Lakes in Edina. We're also going to go enjoy dinner at Good Earth in the Galleria afterward if anyone would like to join. They offer great healthy and organic options, and I've been meaning to get there to sit down to eat, here's a great excuse!
Today's Give Away is huge, I'm so, so SO excited about it!! The good people at Vita Tops have donated a 20 piece Gift of Health Super Sampler like the one below for ONE lucky reader! The basket includes two of the following of each of these delicious flavors:
Deep Chocolate, Chocolate Mint, Dark Chocolate Pomegranate, Fudgy Peanut Butter, Triple Chocolate Chunk, Golden Corn, Cran Bran, Blue Bran, Raisin Bran, Banana Nut
I'm a big fan of Vita Tops, they're all 100 calories and generally have around six grams of fiber and four grams of protein. They taste delicious, and the chocolate kind make me feel like I'm having HUGE treat. The corn muffin ones are perfect with chili or soup, and when you compare them to a Famous Dave's corn muffin, you'll feel a lot better about yourself eating these.
