Sup bros?! I’ve missed you all! Life is flipping awesome and I have some really delicious news to share with you.
1. I AM GOING TO THE OLYMPIA!
Say what? If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I already mentioned it, but I’m headed to VEGAS in a couple weeks to work with About Time during the Olympia Expo. I’ve always wanted to attend the Olympia, and now I get to work there, too?! I am living my bucket list. (That IS the point of a bucket list, amIright?!)
If you have no idea who Mr. Olympia is, or maybe it sounds like I’m speaking a different language, you gotta check it out HERE!
As always, readers, if you are attending the Olympia, PLEASE COME SAY HELLO! And take a picture with me! I always love meeting you guys. About Time is at booth #1785 and I will be there all day, both days (Friday and Saturday; September 19 & 20th). You will probably recognize my huge smile, very loud voice, and probably the headstand. #easytospot
2. IT’S MY BIRTHDAY MONTH!
Mixed feelings about turning 28, mainly because I think I get more gray hairs every single frickin’ day. However, I feel like I’m getting more awesome with age. Does anyone else feel like that? Or is that incredibly narcissistic? I also seem to care less about other’s opinions as I get older, soooo if that IS narcissistic… then sorry I’m not sorry. Back to my birthday, I get to celebrate in Vegas, and that is super.
3. NEW PROTEIN BAR RECIPE – CHOCOLATE COCONUT PROTEIN BARS
I adapted this off a recipe I got from my About Time girl Jessica B, and it takes about 5 minutes! Mix together:
- 2 cups oats
- 2 scoops About Time whey protein (I used chocolate, but chocolate coconut would be LEGIT)
- 1/2 c peanut butter
- 1/4 c honey
- 1/2 c unsweetened shredded coconut
Mix everything in a big mixing bowl. Use a little almond milk to moisten if you need to. Place mixture into a sprayed glass baking dish and freeze for one hour. Cut up into 12 squares. Then tell Jessica she’s awesome.
