Kashi Girl??

I want to start out by asking you to read this article and then tell me if you would work like this. I totally would love to be able to type while walking on a treadmill!! I just hate sitting all day.

I got to work a little after 7am this morning, breakfast was oatmeal, a peach, a yogurt and a Kashi soft apple bar. I have been loving peaches in oatmeal.

I had a 10:30 coffee break and got a skinny caramel latte and had some of my chocolate popcorn that I bought yesterday at GNC.

Lunch was a Kashi frozen dinner (some black bean and mango kind) that I put over a salad. This was a great combo. Sorry that I didn't get a picture of the box.

At 5pm I had this:
I worked until 7:20pm then I went to the gym. I did 15 minutes on the stair climber and 11 minutes running on the treadmill. Plus the walk to the gym from my office and then back to the parking garage was a mile or so.

Dinner was at 8:30, I did another cereal mix with the last thing of yogurt left. This yogurt was much too tiny to cover all of my cereal, but it was quick.

It just occured to me that I had 4 different Kashi products today, one at each meal and for a snack. One of the cereals was Kashi Go Lean Crunch. That is a little weird that Kashi consumes so much pantry and freezer room at our house!!

I feel like I want something else, but really I think it is more exhaustion and the fact that maybe I should have ate something more dinner like tonight.

Today was another 12 1/2 hour work day, so I'm beat. I am going to sleep, so I can wake up and be at the office by 7ish. I have a long work day tomorrow and another interview lunch.

You ARE a Kashi girl! :0)

Kashi owes you some free products for how much love you're giving them!

Wow... I can't believe I found someone who has just a busy of a life as I do. It's refreshing to see someone who fits it all in - and successfully! Sometimes I feel like I can't do it all.

I've totally seen that treadmill desk before and remembered thinking I would absolutely LOVE it! It's not like it would have to be running the entire day...but knowing you had the option would be so cool!

I hope that Kashi does a Google alert and finds your blog to send you some free products! But hey, they have so many amazing products, it's not surprising that you'd have one with every meal!

I am a Kashi addict, I love their cereals of all kinds (that I've tried anyway).... I think I have 4 kinds open now!
On the treadmill article - I could never do it. I guess I have too many papers, pleading books, research, etc. all over the desk, and knowing me, it would crash within a few minutes. But more than that, really, I don't like the idea of mushing work and my activity like running. I'd rather take 40 minutes or so and get out of the office 100% to have a 5 mile run. That way it really is *me time* rather than not really work and not really exercise, if that makes sense? In the treadmill-at-work situation, I'd think I could neither get really into work nor really enjoy my activity.

You truly are a testiment to- being "too busy" is not a good enough excuse to not work out. I am amazed that you still find the time and have the energy to work out after a 12.5 hour work day.
You go girl! Serious inspiration...

Whoo Kashi... you should send them the link to this post and maybe you'll get some free stuff? Try to score some of those pumpkin bars for me, hehe. :-)

I also saw that article and considered blogging about it, I would love to be able to do that! Such a good idea.

I also love Kashi. It's such a great brand, totally filling, nutritious and delicious. What more can I ask for?
