March Foodie Penpal

This is my third month as part of the Foodie Penpals program! It is such a fun way to connect with other bloggers and readers. January and February were a lot of fun so I was really looking forward to connecting with my penpal this month.

My penpal for the month of March was Elizabeth from Don’t (White) Sugar-Coat It!  Elizabeth sent me an awesome box of goodies from Whole Foods.

Included in the box was a packet of miso soup mix, buckwheat noodles, roasted chickpeas, Quinn Popcorn, tea, and a mixture of cocoa and seeds for a recipe included in the box.

Sadly I haven’t been able to try anything yet, but I’m really excited to try all of the products!

I think I’m most excited about the buckwheat noodles and the recipe Elizabeth sent me for chocolate pudding.

To become a Foodie Penpal, just sign up online on The Lean Green Bean’s blog!  You sign up month to month so you’re not having to commit to a long term program.  Sadly I’m going to have to go on hiatus from the program until after my wedding but I’m excited to join up again next fall.


Day 3 of the Body Revolution was pretty stinkin’ awesome to be perfectly honesty!!  To start off the day, I woke up at 5:15AM and went to spin.  Yesterday’s spin class focused on legs, including a 15 minute sculpting session after the 45 minutes of spin.  My legs were slightly sore during the day yesterday but I was still feeling really good.  After work I was UBER hungry so as soon as I got home I threw some chicken in the oven and started cardio 1!  I really love cardio 1!  The running man is still the most difficult for me but the 30 minute workout flew by once again.  After cooling down I assembled my dinner and chowed down.

Breakfast- Everything bagel with egg whites and coffee (350 calories)

Lunch- Leftover shirataki spaghetti, green beans, and a fruit cup (230 calories)

Snacks- Apple cinnamon chobani, apple, and a grande skim caramel macchiato (401 calories)

Dinner- Stir fry green beans and broccoli slaw with soy sauce with two Trader Joe’s chicken skewers.  No Pudge Brownies for dessert… (445 calories)

Total calories- 1426 calories

Day 4 is here and it’s FRIDAY!!!  My workout plan for today is to workout over lunch and then to do workout 1 as soon as I get home tonight.

I hope y’all have a wonderful day!
