About Me

My Photo
I am a teacher, fitness/yoga instructor, runner, celebrity stalker, chocolate lover, embarrassing dancer, wine guzzler, can't-live-without-my-girlfriends kind of girl. I also have a collection of high heels that strongly outweighs my collection of runners. My goal is to find balance in my life through health and exercise- and when I say balance, I mean kicking ass in the gym and enjoying food, wine, family, friends, and basking in celebrity news. Let's eat clean and do some craaahaaayzy workouts together... followed by a glass of wine.

CLIF & LUNA BAR GIVEAWAY!

Pin It I experienced this problem a few years ago when I grew tired of buying granola bars that were either full of crap, or full of nothing: I needed a good nutrition bar! As a teacher (and let's be honest... anyone in life) who works a busy day, I was really in need of a good, wholesome bar at 3pm that filled me up and had some nutritional value.

Oh, and that didn't taste like cardboard.

Enter: MY DESK DRAWER.

Juicy Fruit, Skipping Rope, Stopwatch, Cream, Vitamin D (gummies... I'm 5), Life Saver Mints, and LUNA Bars! And yes, my drawer is always this messy. You should see my purse.
LUNA Bars are my saviour! They get me through the afternoon and they taste like a dream. They are specifically formulated for active women to provide nutrients, vitamins (like vitamin D), and minerals (like iron, calcium, and folic acid) that we often lack (they are also vegan-friendly and considered a low-GI food).


Are you REALLY surprised that my favourite flavour has the word "Brownie" in  it?

They have some sinful flavours like Nutz Over Chocolate, Lemon Zest and Toasted Nuts and Cranberry- which has ranked very high on my list even though it doesn't begin or end with the word chocolate (shocking, I know).

These are so good, you could eat them with a knife and fork. And... I just might have.
I remember I was in the process of getting my RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) certification at P3 Yoga- think sitting on a hard floor all day with nothing but a yoga mat, 8 hours a day- only to break for hard core yoga. Don't get me wrong- best experience of my LIFE- but it was really hard on the body!

This was one of our "breaks". 
It was also really hard to pretend to eat organic, healthy food the whole time-while around holistic nutritionists, workout freaks, and overall people who have much more willpower than I do- I was so exhausted I would get home and go for a box of Kraft Dinner. But I digress.

One of my yoga peeps came in and said "Loblaws has LUNA Bars on special this week!"

Naturally, we all ran and bought boxes of them (literally- I got 3). They were perfect for getting through those long days.

This lasted me... about a week.
This is how I felt after:

Saluting the Sun, while eating the Moon (Luna). Talk about Yin and Yang!

A year later, when I finally got that certificate, I yelled "F!&% YEAH!"
Very yogic of me.

We are the coolest. 
Now... don't fret, my male peeps. LUNA has one badass brother, that I'm sure you've heard of.

CLIF Bars came from the idea that an energy bar need not be boring. They were named after the founder was on a 175-mile bike ride (no biggie), who craved an energy bar that actually tasted good. Gary soon cooked up the recipe with his mom, and named the company after his Dad- Clifford! They make delicious energy bars in super amazing flavours like Crunchy Peanut Butter, Carrot Cake, and Chocolate Chip.

Bonus: their family also owns a winery.

No wonder we are friends.
The lovely peeps at CLIF and LUNA want YOU to win this!




One of you lucky guys or gals will win a prize with some delicious (and nutritious!) products from CLIF and LUNA! CLIF Bars in flavours like Chocolate Chip and Carrot Cake, LUNA Bars in flavours like Lemon Zest and Nutz Over Chocolate, and CLIF Shot Bloks in flavours like Mountain Berry and Strawberry!
