Friday Five

A weekly round-up of tidbits, tips, ideas, news articles, random cool things...

1. I've thankfully hooked up with a few more sponsors, creators of weight loss surgery friendly products I love which will mean even more groovy giveaways and good stuff like that. October should be very eggciting, sorry I couldn't resist. Check back Sunday for the start of the fun! I appreciate you supporting the companies on the left they help make The World According to Eggface possible. Also, I want to state this for the record, integrity is of the utmost importance to me so you'll never find me pimping anything that I don't personally love, use or think is super groovy. No matter how many bills I have to pay.

2. Are you using Spotify? I love it. So much easier than or youtube... create your music playlist then let it play. I use the free version so occasional commercials but still very cool. I created a playlist of favs to dance to and dance for about 30 minutes a night. If you listen to the whole list it's 1 hour. My theory on Post Weight Loss Surgery Exercise.

Usher featuring Pitbull – DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love

My dancing is well... you remember Elaine on Seinfeld ;) but I sweat so hey, raise the roof.

3. More Quest Protein Bars News: I think I mentioned Peanut Butter & Jelly flavor came out last week. This week All-Natural (no Sucralose) Cinnamon Roll came out and a little bird told me they will soon have Strawberry Cheesecake *swoon*, Coconut Cashew, Lemon Cream Pie, and Chocolate Peanut Butter. I love that Quest is making Gluten Free, No Sugar Alcohols, All Natural versions. I eat them ALL but I know some people have different needs so it's nice they are out there.

4. Some articles I read this week that were worth checking out:
What is Being Morbidly Obese Protecting You From? and Morbid Obesity as Defense Mechanism? - Mary Jo Rapini
Giving Obesity Equal Weight in the Health Care System - Christine Ferguson

5. It was National Coffee Week! So umm yeah nothing changed in my world. Slurp c[_] Celebrate...

Shelly's Mini Coffee Protein Donuts

Shelly's Coffee Toffee Crunch Protein Ice Cream
Shelly's Espresso Protein Truffles
Shelly's Banana Protein Mochacchino
Shelly's Café Biscotti Protein Shake
Shelly's CLICK'n Granola

Oh rumor has it Starbucks will FINALLY be giving us Sugar Free drinkers a holiday option with a Sugar Free Peppermint Mocha Latte.

Now if only I could have a Sugar Free Pumpkin and Gingerbread Latte my life would be complete. Thank you Sugar Free Torani for letting me have them at home.

Woohoo! I can't wait to see. My I-pod is filled to the max...a good portion of your playlist is on there too. I find if I don't have the right body doesn't want to move! : )

Awesome news about the Quest Bars!! Thanks for getting me hooked!! Eggs and protein shakes do get a little old for breakfast every morning. Keep up the awesomeness that you are!!!

Sandy said...

LOVE Spotify! I have a playlist going while I am at work (and home) and it is sooo fun and easy :) And I am thrilled about the Skinny Peppermint Mochas! Woo hoo! Great news!

I heard about Quest from you and just got my samples in. I tried the Vanilla Almond (or was it Almond Vanilla??) and it was sooo good. Other bars cause dumping for me, so I was happy to find these.

The SF peppermint mocha sounds great. I finally found Pumpkin Pie SF Torani at World Market and tonight I'm enjoying a pumpkin decaf cappuccino. Yum! Wouldn't have tried it if I hadn't read about it in your blog

What's your favorite quest flavor?

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Toss up on my fav... Apple Pie and Wild Berry. I'm getting PBJ this week so I'll let you know.

suz said...

No skinny peppermint latte at my local Starbucks :(

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Suz, Christmas time :)

Jennee said...

I sure hope they "test" it around here . . . does "test" mean they won't be doing it for long? Or only this year? Or maybe not all locations . . .

Ugh, I am so excited but also worried, lol :-P

I did pick up the SF Pumpkin Pie syrup but it isn't the same as Bux yummy drink.

Jennee said...

Wait, I just noticed it was dated 2010 :( I guess that means they did it last year and we will be hopeful for this year!?

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Jennee, Yeah hearing its this year... last year was a test market. Got the 411 from a barista blog reader. Fingers crossed.
