Rock You Like a Hurricane

by Jillian on August 26, 2011 · 4 comments

This weekend I had planned to be at DMB Caravan festival but seeing as there is a hurricane headed right for us, Governer’s Island is probably not the place to be. Fortunately, it is still happening today but Saturday and Sunday are postponed.

That is the news that I woke up to, along with the fact that my parking garage is full (the one I park at to take the train to work) because people are trying to get their cars to higher ground incase of a flood. I did get in a great leg workout though, so I guess my morning wasn’t all bad.

I hopped around from the bike to the elliptical to the treadmill before moving onto squats, dead lifts, and a few machines for calves, inner & outer thigh, and glutes. Nothing out of the ordinary but I really felt the burn and was sweating up a storm.

I’m snacking on one of my favorite things from the HLS swag bag–a NuGo bar! So far I’ve tried double dark chocolate, dark chocolate almond, trail mix, and now dark chocolate pretzel with sea salt! Yum!

If I knew how good they were I would have swiped more from the extras table. I saw on the website there is a peanut butter cup flavor, too. I am going to have to scope out my local grocery stores for them. The pretzel and sea salt one is amazing, you can see the sea salt on top and it looks just as good as it tastes. With 10 grams of protein, I’m not complaining!

Happy (summer) Friday, which means I’m outta here at 1:00 and off to the festival!

Ooo those bars look really yummy. Anything with pretzels, salt, and chocolate and I’m in. I’ll have to look for these in Wegmans.
I live in Jersey and all my plans are getting messed up because of the hurricane, too!

Go to Whole Foods — they carry ‘em ;) Oh and keep your eye out at major airports, they seem to have them too! The Mocha and the Mint are also really good. But you already know I’m a huge fan ;)

Oh and Shanna is right, I always see those bars at airports!
