You’ve been good to me, postman

Hey guys! How’s your day going?? Who has Indian food plans for tonight?? Sadly, I’m gonna wait until tomorrow for Indian since I have a training appt, but it will just taste that much better, right? :D

The postman has been so kind to me lately.

First, he brought me a beautiful plethora of GLOBARS!

Glo Bars

Ange was so sweet to send me Glo Bars to sample in every flavor, as well as some Glo-nola

Glonola

I loved the nutritional info for these bars! They’re going to be a special treat :D That is, if the pilot doesn’t munch them all… I saw him scoping them out ;)

On Saturday, I had a bite of the Run Glo Bar since I love Maca with all of my soul

runglobar

It was delicious! I loved the crunch and the fact that it wasn’t too sweet. Definitely get your hands on some Glo goodies if you haven’t already :D

Next gift from Mr. Postman:

029

Vega Sport!!! (If you haven’t entered my giveaway already, check it out here. Winner will be announced tomorrow morning!)

Since I got this sample for free from the lovely people at Vega, I’ll be posting a review for it after I give it a whirl on my reviews page. It came in perfect time since I teach two classes tonight! YESSSSSSSS.

More goodies:

rawgoodies

A boatload of raw superfood justice.

Here’s what I got:

Cacao nibs

cacaonibs

(Back at the restaurant, we all used to say cacao like a bunch of parrots. I miss that)

Goji berries

gojiberries

Hemp seeds

hempseeds

Coconut oil

cocooil

Sprouted pumpkin seed butter

 

pumpkin butter

Raw Cacao Crunch cereal

And finally, shredded coconut

You’ll never guess what that’s for ;) (especially since they’re “macaroon cut”)

Whew! LOTS of good stuff! That’s what going to raw culinary school will do to ya… make you feel like your current kitchen stash is inadequate. The second I got home, I went online and ordered all of that stuff. The crazy thing is all of it cost a little over $100. Seriously! And those are pretty big bags and I got WAY more bang for my buck than I would have at Whole Foods or another health store. The secret is a lovely place called Earth Shift. Think of it as the Sam’s Club of raw foods and superfoods. You have to register and each order has to be over $99, but if you’re going to stock up, it’s awesome!!!

Well I’m off to rest a little before teaching spin and Zumba, then back to the other gym for a training appointment. It’s starting to feel like the good ol’ days around here again.

Have a great night <3

Today’s Zumba playlist: (I’ll post spin’s later.. still working on it)

  5. I notice you use a lot of non Zumba music for your classes. Do you make up your own choreography too? I teach Zumba but mainly use the DVD’s I get sent. I recently made my own up to a song from Dirty Dancing Havana Nights…I think people really liked it!

  6. That is some sweet loot! Haha i love the she wolf song, but have u seen the video- she looks all crazy fierce and animalistic and nakey!? LOL have a great night G!

  7. SO much fun stuff! My favorite is the pumpkin n seed butter! I need this stuff ;) Enjoy it all girly

  8. You’re a regular health foods store!

    My day is kinda sucky because I’m pretty sure I got food poisoning last night. So here I am reading the Fitnessista and laying in bed.

    Words of wisdom: Never buy shrimp that is marked 50% off. Trust me.

  9. Dang girl, it’s like Christmas up in your place!! I love getting packages!

    rando-question…my HRM wrist watch broke, but the chest strap still transmits. When I use cardio machines that can detect my HR, does that change the calories-burned count? Make it more accurate? If I enter my age/weight/etc..? Thanks :)

  10. Love Justin Bieber!

  11. The Pilot says:

    So, what exactly is going on between you and the postman who keeps showing up with all this free stuff? I’m going to sick the dogs on him ;)

  12. Haha at The Pilot’s comment! You’re a luck girl with that postman – I need to find myself one of those guys ;)

  13. Seriously? I opened my mailbox and what’s inside? A bill. I need a new postman or new friends, lol

  14. the postman must have a crush on you hooking you up with all those goodies ;) pilot, watch outtttt! jay kay jay kay.. great loot!

  15. Oh my gosh. I’m with Donna. All I got in the mail today was my electric bill.

    Your Mr. Postman is like Lil’ Wayne’s Mrs. Officer. Except, maybe less sexual. Maybe. Haha ;)

  16. I am getting Vega sports samples too, I cannot wait to try them!! Thanks for mentioning where you got all your goodies because I have never heard of Earth Shift, I will check it out!!

  17. You could concoct a reeeeallly ridiculous granola mix with those goodies!!

  19. I tried to register but you have to have a promo code as far as I can tell. I put a 0 in the promo code area and got this message:

    You cannot sign up unless you have a recieved a special promotional number from one of the Earth Shift Products team members.
    If you do not have a number you can contact us at (866) 654-2012. There is a $65 membership fee.

    Any advice?

  20. Thanks for the EArth Shift 411!!! I was telling the Pure2 Twins awhile ago that I feel like I need a commercial account for what Ive been spending on raw baking ingredients the last few months. This will help alot! Thanks Gina!

  21. Don’t cha just love the postman! <3

  22. AWESOME loot!! Okay I have an important question…could you explain what exactly Maca is and what the nutrional benefits are?

    Have a great night at teaching! xoxo

    • Fitnessista says:

      from this website: http://www.macaroot.com/benefits/index.html
      The endocrine system is a collection of glands that produce chemical “messengers” called hormones essential for normal bodily functions. A wide variety of physiological processes are carried out unconsciously by these “messengers”. Once released they flow directly into the bloodstream and are transported to organs and tissues throughout the entire body.

      Scientists and doctors are now finding maca to be one of the best natural ways to regulate and support endocrine health. This action regulates metabolism, energy levels, growth, sexual development and the sense of well being and attitude.

      Thankfully, maca does not contain hormones itself. Instead it provides a unique set of nutrients that directly fuel the endocrine system and help the glands to produce vital hormones in precise dosages predetermined by one’s own body.

  23. P.S.

    I tried to sign up for that raw foods website but it asks for a ” special membership promo number” and I don’t know what to put?

  24. I love getting packages in the mail! All of your stuff looks awesome! Especially the agave and pumpkin seed butter!

  25. mmm all those goodies from the postman look fantastic!

  26. Wow, what sweet loot!!! I love when the postman delivers big! :)

  27. Hey Gina! I love your blog, it’s very inspiring. I need your help! I recently received a huge jar of coconut oil and I have no clue what to do with it! What is coconut oil usually used for? Thank you so much for your help :)

  28. Oh my goodness! What’s a girl gotta do to get that Special Delivery from the Postman?! Looks AMAZING.
