All Hands on TWEETDECK!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on July 22, 2009

How did no one mention TWEETDECK to me until today!?!?! :D

My life will never be the same (and as productive) again!! Am I the last person on earth to find out about this???


I spent all afternoon (6 hours!!!!) creating the template for my nutrition labels as well as calculating nutrition facts and inputting them into my template. I may have Tweeted somewhere during that time too, lol. If you follow me on Twitter you got to see a sneak preview of my first nutrition label that I created. Exciting times, I know.

I am zonked right now. I got 5 of them done and just had to take a break.

I now have detailed nutrition labels up for Classic, Spirit, Chi, Revive, and Bliss Glo Bars. Check it out here! I will be plugging away at the rest of the bars tonight and tomorrow. It feels so good to finally have made some headway in this area!

I have a confession!

I didn’t do the last two exercise days for the Summer Glow Boot Camp! On Sunday, I was in my 10 mile race and I didn’t want to work my muscles Monday or Tuesday either. So then I missed Tuesday’s strength exercises too. I figured it was best to wait until I was fully healed until I got back into my strength training.

So tonight, I am going to play catch up! I doubt I will be able to do everything, but I will try my best to fit it in. Should be a tough workout! Yikes!

It’s time for another fabulous guest post for the SGBC! This time it is with the lovely Bobbi from NHerShoes.

Whew! What a fun boot-camp workout! I love how varied it is. Thanks Bobbi! :D



Another fun green monster recipe today!

This is one COLD and REFRESHING green monster! I just loved it!

The name is very fitting ;)


Heat Wave Green Monster


  • 6 large ice cubes
  • 3 cups spinach (lightly steamed)
  • 1 squirt Kyolic Garlic extract
  • 1.5 cups cantaloupe
  • 1/2 package Amazing Grass Pom-Mango Infusion

Print Recipe

This made me so cold I got Goosebumps! I will definitely be making this during the next heat wave! :D So delicious!! It was a great afternoon snack!


Don’t forget: the Amazing Grass contest ends tomorrow. Get your comment in for a chance to win 4 Amazing Grass bottles, a tee, and a shaker! Don’t forget to submit your green monster for an additional 10 entries.

Amazing Grass Shaker Promo:

Many of you have also been asking me why the Shakers aren’t up on the Amazing Grass websites. To make a long story short, they had to take it off the website for a fix-up, HOWEVER they have offered Oh She Glows readers a special deal until July 31st. Simply, purchase amazing grass products over $21.99 and you will get a shaker for FREE. Just enter in the code ‘ohsheglowsshaker’ at the checkout.


Ok, I’m off to make dinner, kiss hubby hello, and then workout/watch Dragon’s Den (LOVE that show!).

Enjoy your night beauties! :)

Tweetdeck is awesome!! I just got it today too after seeing your tweets!

Yay! I love Bobbi!! She is toooo cute! :D

Ange did you get your excel/word/label issue fixed? Try “Paste special” as a “microsoft excel worksheet object” from excel into word.


Eve July 22, 2009 at 7:46 pm

I’m so behind with this whole twitter thing!


Melanie Z July 22, 2009 at 8:30 pm

Angela, what’s your favorite Amazing Grass product? I have no idea what I should try first!


Angi July 22, 2009 at 8:52 pm

Gah! I just got my Amazing Grass today so no shaker for me, boo hiss!


Paige @ Running Around Normal July 22, 2009 at 9:04 pm

I’m gonna have to see what this tweet deck is all about!


Kayzilla July 22, 2009 at 9:17 pm

That bootcamp workout kicked my ass, and I’m an advanced exerciser. XD You get out what you put in, I guess. But that was a fun circuit, suprisingly.

I still don’t get the whole twitter thing.
It’s like myspace/facebook + personal blogging + ADD + OCD updating. Defiantly not my thing. o_O;

If you can’t seem to get another hot day over there, feel free to come down to Texas. I can probably crack an egg on the sidewalk and watch it cook at 3PM everyday. If you go outside without sunscreen, you burst into flames..

Which is dangerous.

Smokey the bear would be PISSED if we didn’t wear sunscreen, as it endangers the.. suburban trees. (Smokey needed an extra job since the economy has gone to hell, so he’s taken up protecting trees in the suburbs these days… -sigh-)

But yes. Perfect weather for an ice cold green monster. Just.. make sure you wear your sunscreen. :D

I had to mention TweetDeck in my latest post this evening too … I just couldn’t help it! ; )


Lynna July 22, 2009 at 10:56 pm

did you find a better site to analyze your recipes or are you still using nutrition data? I tried it today and I don’t like it very much either but I can’t seem to find anything better. Thanks!


leslie July 22, 2009 at 11:25 pm

i’m scared to download tweetdeck. i only recently started twittering (tweeting?), but i can see how it could become an addiction. tweetdeck might take it to a whole new level!


bobbi July 22, 2009 at 11:55 pm

thanks for the post dear :) I need to do this workout again soon it always kicks my butt!!!


Anna July 23, 2009 at 12:28 am

I love that work out! I’m definitely trying it tomorrow!! What a great way to get a work out in without leaving the house.


Leah @ Simply Fabulous July 23, 2009 at 5:41 am

lol you and your tweet + twitter stuff! I think that is one thing that I will never get into… I dunno why!

Love the workout from Bobbi!! I can’t wait to try it!


Cait (Cait's Plate) July 23, 2009 at 8:02 am

Haha I love the Bobbi workout! She’s awesome! And I REALLY want to get my hands on that GM!

The next thing you do with your business should be GM pairings with Glo Bars! It’ll be like wine pairings but better!! :)


Cate July 23, 2009 at 8:04 am

I love Tweetdeck too! Thanks for the workout (Yay Bobbi!)… I’m not sure if I can do all those pushups, but I certainly will try!

BTW – I saw this post on the lululemon blog, they are having a 4-day warehouse sale at the Hamilton Convention Centre starting today! They used to have these in Vancouver, ridiculous deals if you can get through the crowds. Go early!

Happy day!


Pam July 23, 2009 at 8:23 am

That is a bootcamp workout….whew….lol!!! Great Bobbi!


Jocelyn July 23, 2009 at 8:25 am

Hey Angela-

I havent’ caught the whole Twitter bug yet. I’m a facebook girl : )

But that work out from Bobbi looks great! I’m glad you had her as a guest post. I love variety when I exercise because I get bored very quickly and that routine look great to me!

Today is my 1 month Blogging anniversary (ahh I can’t believe it’s already been a month!) But in celebration I’m having a FREE give away! Check it out : )



Kristine July 23, 2009 at 8:34 am
