This is a shot from Alberta today…can you believe it?

I can!

Last June when I went to AB it snowed on JUNE 6th (my sister’s birthday of all days too!).

Thank you for your great suggestions on this morning’s wedding before race post! I will be telling you what my game plan is tomorrow! You gave me so many great ideas. I feel really good about it now.

I am getting caught up slowly but surely today. I feel so much better than I did yesterday and not as overwhelmed. I am getting caught up on orders, business calls, interviewing (1 more to go this afternoon), and some Farmer’s Market tasks today. I almost have a clear inbox which has not happened in over a month. There is no better feeling!

Lunch was awesome today too. Since we have had our heat wave all I want are salads, juices, fruits, and other light foods! The heat really impacts the way I eat. I have no desire for anything hot.

Mammoth salad contained: 1 cup chickpeas, salsa, 1 chopped tomato, 2 organic romaine hearts, 1/2 cucumber, sea salt and black pepper, and my better than balsamic salad dressing.

Perfecto!

Along with a juicy grapefruit…

Afternoon snack will be a High Protein Renew Glo Bar:

The video finally uploaded after a week!

[PS- Gena’s name is pronounced ‘JENNA’ and not ‘GEE-NA’ like I said. So sorry Gena!]

Happy Memorial Long Weekend to my American readers! Be safe and have fun.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SISTER KERRIE!!! xo

Canada has some crazy-cool weather! I just went skiing up in Banff, AB two weeks ago and everyone back home in Spokane TOTALLY didn’t get it. Hahah, I’m a big Canada fan!

I saw the title of this post and said to myself “she has to be talking about alberta* – lol. Hahah, so true. We got some snow in Calgary last night but its mostly melted now – I suspect that picture is from Edmonton or somewhere even further North. This country = crazzzy weather!

Hello- about your wedding-run combination … I found myself in the same situation last year, with a friend’s wedding the night before a 10K race. Despite my best intentions, I ended up taking full advantage of the free cocktails all evening, and dancing away much later than expected in my heels. I then fell into bed at 2 am, fearing the worst. Well you know what, the adrenaline just takes over! Sure I was dehydrated, sure my head hurt, but I ran my best time out of sheer determination (and working up a sweat is a GREAT hangover cure). I say, enjoy the free bar (with some restraint, naturally) and wear those killer sexy heels, and let your strong, powerful body pay you back the favours you’ve been doing for it all this time! You can catch up on sleep and liquids later…..

I love it! After reading everyone’s comments this morning, I definitely feel like I can splurge a little and still have a great race. I am sure I will find a nice balance! :)

When I lived in Colorado in 2001 it snowed like that on JUNE 16th!!! By the end of the day it was 70 degreesvand it looked like nothing happened :)
Weather can be crazy funny!

Great video, Angela! I was doing vlogs for a while, but you’ve inspired me to stop being lazy and start them again. I like how you can better connect with the writer of the site. And those oats look GREAT!

I heard they have snow in Northern California right now, too. Absolutely crazy! It’s gorgeous here to today. Overcast and humid but really comfortable temperature-wise.

Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin May 28, 2010

What is the nutritional content of the Glo-Bars? I was trying to find them on the website, but I couldn’t find it. I don’t think I was looking in the right place.

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) May 28, 2010

Here ya go! http://www.globakery.com/images/RENEW.jpg

The nutr. info is linked on each bar’s page. It is a bit hard to see though as it is just a link.

Angela (Oh She Glows) May 28, 2010

In the high protein there is 11 grams of protein btw.

Angela (Oh She Glows) May 28, 2010

Okay I don’t feel so bad then…I’ve been complaining about the never-ending RAIN here in Oregon but at least it’s not SNOWING here!!!

Reply

Nicole @ Making Good Choices May 28, 2010

I can’t believe you have snow. I think I wouldn’t have left that house if it did that here in NY. I love the video and all the still shots you included too! Thanks for sharing that :)

Reply

Kellie May 28, 2010

I feel bad complaining about California weather. It has been low 60′s here and we all are complaining because it is cold. I have nothing to complain about after seeing that picture.

Allison @ Food For Healing May 28, 2010

Your video is so cute! thanks!

What kind of oats do you use tho? are they “quick oats” can you use them or does it make a difference?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) May 28, 2010

Regular oats :) Bobs red mill

Ser May 28, 2010

Thanks for the post! I was wondering do you peel your banana before putting it in the freezer? When I’ve tried freezing bananas with the peel on they just get stuck!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) May 28, 2010

Yes I peel them…at first I didnt but I learned that lesson fast! haha

Reply

lin May 28, 2010

I can’t wait to try this recipe! I’ve been wanting to make overnight oats for the past few days but I keep forgetting to make them the night before :-P. Anyways, love your videos!
