In Case You Missed It & $50 Lululemon Giveaway

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on August 29, 2011


Last week, my best friend Allison asked me if everything was ok because she hadn’t seen a blog post from me in a few days and was getting worried.

‘…not that there is anything wrong with you taking a break though!!’, she sweetly added.

Allison is a great friend.

I knew there was a major issue if she wasn’t seeing new blog posts because I hadn’t taken a day off blogging in over a week. I figured she wasn’t the only one having problems, so I asked you guys on Twitter and Facebook and just as I suspected many of you hadn’t seen any new posts since my Thrive post on August 14th. Some of you thought I died. I’m sorry to disappoint. ;)


Eric and I were able to pinpoint the issue to some cache settings in PHP that were changed the same day of my Thrive post. Basically, it was caching entire pages on some of your computers (saving in memory) so new posts wouldn’t appear; however many of you weren’t impacted at all. We removed these changes last week, so hopefully everything is running smoothly now.

I guess I can’t ask you who is still having problems seeing new posts though can I? ;)

Without further ado, In Case You Missed It

1) Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Spiced Doughnuts


I dusted off my doughnut pans and cranked open my first can of pumpkin, albeit prematurely.

2) Rosemary Olive Oil Chips


The hit of Eric’s birthday party. I was left with a few scraps!

3) Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Glazed Doughnuts


One of the craziest things I’ve ever made.

4) 5 Ingredient Cheeze Sauce 


Stove-top, old fashioned easy cheeze sauce that comes together in minutes flat.

5) High Protein Tortilla Pizzas


I really did intend on saving Eric one…

6) Athens Honeymoon Photography


I’ve got the travel bug and you’re coming with me!

7) Chocolate Cake Batter Smoothie


You missed a spot.

8.) Zucchini Bread Oatmeal


Another way to sneak greens into your breakfast without tasting them.

9) Stuffed Mushroom Phyllo Roll & Mango Kale Salad


The beginning of my obsession with Phyllo.

10) Chocolate Chunk Toffee Bars


I made these for Eric when he was suffering from IMS.

11) How To Create Career Happiness FAQ


For a nice follow-up post (and great discussion!), check out this Graduation Fears that I posted a while back.

12) This Is Not A Real Post


Out with the old, in with the new. Boy, were there mixed opinions on my header change!

Contest will run until Wednesday. Goodluck!

I just recently came accross your site and it’s the best thing that has happened to me in awhile!! I recently decided to become a vegan after being a vegetarian since i was 11 (I’m 20 now, woo) However, I found it boring a difficult and was doing it for all the wrong reasons. I wanted to lose weight but I was having such a hard time because I wasn’t having fun with what I was eating, I ended up having one cheat day a week where I would essentially just mow down on cheese :/
You’re blog and your story have inspired me, not only to become a better cook, but to learn to love myself more and treat my body right! Thank you so much for everything you do!!
— also i like lululemon too:p

I’m a graduate student who just started running in May, and now it’s become an important part of my life and helped me to lose 20lbs that I never could before. I love Lululemon clothing, and I admire your courage for leaving an unfulfilled career and going for the gusto!

Alexis September 2, 2011 at 3:15 pm

I just made your banana bread larabars with soaked nuts – AMAZING!!!

Wendy September 2, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Great blog!!! I came across it not too long ago and I love all the recipes you’ve been posting! I will for sure try lots of them as I always try to eat healthy! And they all look and sound so yummy! Thanks!

Nicole September 2, 2011 at 5:28 pm

I am neither vegan nor vegetarian, but with two young kids, one of whom is now in school, I scavenge your site for healthy recipes that we’ll all enjoy. We particularly enjoy your smoothie, oatmeal and bar recipes – Chocolate Chunk Toffee?? Uh, yes please!

tracylove September 2, 2011 at 6:22 pm

you are what you eat….be delicious!!!

Shayla September 2, 2011 at 11:05 pm

Thank you for inspiring me to take my own health into my hands. I suffer from Crohn’s and your recipes and approach have made a significant difference. You are wonderful!!!

Tracy September 3, 2011 at 12:27 am

You are such an inspiration! In this world of quick fixes, and miracle cures in a bottle, its nice to find someone who is real and who has had real life experiences that a person can relate to!! That is so important. I came across your website by accident on a quest for vegan recipes that actually tasted good :) …now I keep coming back, as much for the recipes as for your stories about your life. You are an inspiration to so many women out there and the comments that are posted on here are proof of that. I have struggled with my weight and with myself really for most of my life. I was never really comfortable with who I was or in what I was doing for a career. My life altering moment came when my husband was killed in an accident 8 years ago (today actually) and it was at that point my entire world came to an end. What I thought I knew, I didn’t anymore and eventually I had to pick up the pieces of my life and move on, but somewhere along the way I decided that it would be a good idea to try to eat myself to death!! Of course, that didn’t help. I ended up more overweight, miserable and at time so depressed that I wouldn’t have gotten out of bed most days if it wasn’t for the fact that the dog had be fed and go outside. One day I found a note that my husband had written to me before he died but had never given me …in it he said, you have so many great qualities, that I don’t think you even realize. If you just let yourself be who you are, you will be happy. Stop trying to define yourself by what everyone else says you should be or by where you should be at this point of your life. If you died tomorrow would this be what you would have wanted your life to be about? That simple note make me really think about what it was that made me happy and where I wanted to go. I decided to leave my corporate job that I disliked so much and move into a totally different career where I could focus on what I was good at. I also wanted to be healthy. I wanted to eat better and I wanted to do something fun for exercise. I started changing how I was cooking & baking and I took up boxing and kickboxing. Then I thought that I would like to learn to run. I took a class, found out I loved running (it was a great way to clear my mind), that lead to a 5km race, then a 10k and on to a 15km. I stopped binge eating, and trying to starve myself skinny after the binges. I decided that I was going to get rid of scale that had dominated my life for years and just focus on being healthy. I can’t even begin to describe how liberating that is for someone who had spent all their time counting carbs, calories, and trying to figure out how to burn off what I took in. I still have days where it is easy to revert back to my old ways of thinking but I have realized that if I keep it simple, focus on what I know is good for me and for my body I am happier – plus if I want to eat a piece of cake I eat it!!! I just don’t eat the whole cake anymore….well sometimes I might. :) but that is ok. I can have a bad day or 2 or 5 and know that the next day, I can get things back on track. Anyway, I just wanted you to know that I think you are doing a great thing by doing what you do and by being who you are. :)

Everything looks delicious…the Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Spiced Doughnuts look especially amazing! I just started doing barre workouts last week and Lululemon pants would be great for my workouts. I enjoy your blog; thank you for sharing with all of us!

For the record, I liked your new header! And you and Eric make a great techy team!

Stefanie September 4, 2011 at 4:08 am

I’m obsessed with your website now and commend your efforts. Health is such a priority that people ignore, and it’s rough to treat your body well in today’s world. Kudos to you!

Oh and i LOVE Lululemon (but they’re so darn expensive!).

Anastasia Okonski September 4, 2011 at 10:00 am

love the new header!

Alyssa R September 4, 2011 at 10:33 am

I never win these things, but I will keep trying. Somehow I’m convincing myself that keeping positive will help me one day win a giveaway! I love lululemon, but can never afford it. Having such a great addition to my yoga wear would be wonderful!
