Picky Bars review + what’s your spirit animal?

Two nights ago, I had my first Ragnar Ambassador training call. It was with Leslie, our ambassador coordinator and other ambassadors from all over the U.S! It got me really excited to start getting out there and talking about Ragnar!

One of our “assignments” before the call was to “introduce” ourselves via email and pick our spirit animal. Fun!

I went with the miniature horse because:

  • I’m also kind of miniature!
  • I’m friendly and get along with mostly everyone
  • Horses can run long distances

If you can’t tell — this was a hard one for me. Basically, after someone took my Honey Badger answer, I was left with nothing.

I’ve been getting some pretty fun packages in the mail lately — most recently, my first Picky Bars shipment!

The only flavor I’ve tried so far is their trademark flavor — Lauren’s Mega Nuts. And it was DE-licious. I think my favorite thing about these bars is the texture. My issue with a lot of energy bars is that it takes me awhile to get used to some of their weird textures. These are firm, but not hard and full of flavor but they don’t weigh you down (200 calories). Plus, they’re dairy and gluten free and have a 4:1 carb to protein ratio — perfect for recovery.

Tomorrow is the last day of my juice cleanse and I am excited to try the other three flavors of Picky Bars!

#13in2013 update: I signed up for race #5 today — the Lola’s Lake Waconia 5K. I was tempted by the 10 mile or half, but I’m excited to run a new race for me! And thanks to Gympact, I only paid the processing fee of $3.13 for this race. If you’re wanting to give Gympact a try, don’t forget to use my referral code (237ec8546d) and we both get $5!

      If you get some, let me know what you think! I personally love them 🙂

      There are some “fun” online quizzes out there about your spirit animal. Kind of interesting!
