Kind Snacks and The Dinner

Good afternoon!

How was your weekend? The weather was crazy here in Chicagoland yesterday and there was even a tornado nearby.

Jaden is afraid of storms and spent some of the aternoon hiding under our coffee table.

Yesterday’s Workout

  • Taught BodyPump – 60 minutes

I taught BodyPump again yesterday morning. Although, I wasn’t perfect, I was a lot more comfortable teaching than I was on Friday. On Friday, I was just so nervous and it’s nice to have that first class out of the way.

I worked at the gym this morning, so if I have time tonight, I am going to try and squeeze in a workout.

This morning, the goodies that I won from Kind were delivered!

I received a variety of Kind bars and Kind granola.

I was excited to see that the granola (and bars) are gluten-free! I opened a bag to top my Greek yogurt with for breakfast.

It was a hard choice deciding what flavor to open first, and I finally decided on the Blueberry Vanilla Cluster with Flax Seeds.

Of course, this afternoon, I had to have a Kind bar as a snack. Can you guess what flavor I opened?

I opened the Almond Walnut Macadamia + Protein with Peanuts.


Each bar has 10 grams of protein. And I love macadamia nuts!


I just finished reading The Dinner by Herman Koch.


I’m not even really sure what to say about this book. I am still trying to process the craziness of it. It was definitely a book that draws you in and makes you want to keep reading. I finished the book in a day, but I felt like I had so many questions about things that had happened that were left unanswered.

It’s a book that I would recommend reading just because it really leaves you thinking – how far would you go for the ones you love?

I’m off to pick up my niece! Have a great day!!

  • What were you scared of when you were a kid? I was scared of the dark
