KIND bars


Thursday, February 28, 2013

So last Sunday I went to an upscale grocery store and got 7 different kinds of protein bars. The KIND bars are really good. I love them. They are too expensive to buy singly from the store ($2.09 is expensive) but I have seen them on sale in bulk online. So this is what I will do.

The trick is finding the right time to consume this extra kick of 200 calories/protein. I have been doing it on my drive home from work, and about 30 minutes before a workout.

The thing that I feel is the MOST successful about what I'm doing lately is drinking water. I am doing the same thing I did last week. This week I've not been able to complete my bottle a day yet. Sunday I only got through 1/4th of a bottle, and it got left at the gym. Tuesday I did better, but not completely. Wednesday I did it, and now today I am about half way through my consumption. Working on it, working on it. Ready to go. Got about 8 hours left of work today. Then tomorrow is going to be a lot better.

Trying to figure out my plan for the time I'm on vacation. Maybe the protein bars will be how I get through this without being derailed.

    I like KIND bars too. Did you know they make them in a mini-size also? I just had one - 120 calories - around 4 PM and it holds me until dinner. I buy them off of amazon.com - can get a better price. Not all stores carry the full line - they have some new ones that features spices - cashew/ginger is very yummy.

    I always try to have some protein bars around, especially for travel. A bar and a cup of tea really fills me up.

    thanks for the feed back on the bars. there are so many out there- and not cheap- it's hard to know where to even start. I have stashed some LARA bars in my van for after my walks-sometimes I just see a place that needs to be walked and I haven't always thought far enough in advance to eat or bring something else. another van stash is a flat of water. i can down a fair amount without ieven thinking about it when I am driving.
continued success to you on your journey and enjoy your vacation days
