A Tweeting Good Time

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on July 17, 2009

Good evening!

I have had a rather productive afternoon in the kitchen and in the office! With the help of my Twitter friends, I had a Twitter Conference this afternoon, asking for some Glo Bakery Consultation. :) Many of you were helping me with the naming of my new bars. Twitter is FUN! It is like having a bunch of fun co-workers eager to help out.

In fact, I redesigned my entire Glo Bar line and gave everything a big facelift! Go on over and check it out! I am also adding an exciting new feature for my On The Glo bars! :)

Here is a snippet of the menu:


That’s right folks! Vanity Glo Bars at your service. Completely customizable glo bars right down to the name you want to call it! Coming soon to Glo Bakery. :)

I also baked another order and received a few more orders for Monday. Then around 6pm, I started to work on a Glo Bakery Menu Pricelist. I had a draft copy in Word, but if you are like me, you find working in Word extremely frustrating trying to format anything! So I switched over to Publisher and created a more streamlined menu. I am quite happy with it so far. Around 7:15pm, I started making dinner. Luckily, it was an easy one. Leftovers!


A huge salad with tomato and avocado: 


Leftover curry with brown rice from last night. I added a huge dollop of hummus on top and sprinkled it with coconut. It was even better tonight!


I couldn’t finish all of the salad because my stomach was much too full.


But a little while later, I had room for not one, but TWO of my Glo Bar samples! I had a Pumpkin Spice (not named yet) and an ‘Endure’ (Cranberry Apricot Spelt). YUM!

 fitnessI did my scheduled interval workout today, but my leg muscles were not happy about it! My legs just felt like they were dragging a million pound weights! I hate that. Luckily, tomorrow is my rest day before the big race Sunday.

The workout:

  • 50 min. interval hill workout
  • 4.0-4.3 mph, incline 15%
  • On every ‘5’, I lowered the speed from 4.3 to 4.0 for one minute. This resulted in a nice drop in heart rate (15 bpm approx) and gave me a bit of a break. Every 10-15 mins. I got off and took a water/mental break.
  • Max heart rate: 165 bpm
  • Avg heart rate: 149 bpm

I was so. glad. to. be. done. this. workout. Some days are just ‘blah’ days, I guess! Luckily, I had The Drs on TV to distract me for a bit.


We have started an OSG Running Group on Facebook for the Toronto Half Marathon and 5k for May 2010. If you have signed up please email me and I will send you the invite!

I’m pretty beat tonight. I think I’m going to take the night off work and just relax with some red wine. :)



See you tomorrow for a fun day of race-prep eating and other festivities!

LOVE the idea of the “make your own bar.” I can already see that one becoming a HUGE hit!!! Such a fun way to get exactly what you’re looking for. :)

Hooray for the package getting out of customs! That made great timing!

Man I bet you’re going to be *flooded* with orders if shipping to the US works. :) Yay for all of us!

Glad your package is making it!

Your new design…I like it!

The new names for the bars are great! Of course I haven’t tasted any yet, but just looking at the ingredients the names all sound right on!

And that’s awesome the bars made it through customs–I can’t wait to try to “Refresh” bars in particular!
