Balance Bar (R) Mini-Bars

Sometimes you need to take the edge off, but you don't want a regular-sized energy bar because you're not that hungry.

Balance Bar to the rescue.

Balace Bar(R)'s new Mini Energy bars come in two flavors: Cookie Dough and Double Chocolate Brownie (my personal favorite).

Each mini-bar is only 100 calories.

Get a box of 10 for about 8.99.

Available now wherever Balance Bar is sold.

Certified Kosher.

(And they fit perfectly in my Sachi Lunch Box!)

Eating in is the new eating out.

I look forward to carrying my lunch in this fashionable and functional Sachi (R) Lunch Bag.

The blue "Cool Gems" really work. Just freeze them and pop them in your lunch bag in the morning and your lunch stays cool.

Although this particular style is small, it easily holds one sandwich or Lean Cuisine(R), a Greek yogurt, a piece of fruit and an energy bar (okay, a cookie now and then).

Why should the kids have all the lunch box fun?

* Insulated interior keeps food and drinks cold or hot

* Easily wipes clean inside and out

"Grey Plaid" is just one of many styles offered by Sachi. Visit their website to see the entire collection.

Monday Morning Blues - But Wait, It's Only Sunday

Ever get a case of the Monday Morning Blues on Sunday afternoon?

Happens to me all the time.

But today, is the day, that I attempt to change it.

1. I will say a nice little prayer before I go to bed tonight, asking God to give me a new attitude tomorrow morning.

2. I am grateful to be employed. I will repeat this mantra at least four times when I wake up.

3. I will brew a special cup of coffee (maybe Jamaica Blue Mountain or some other rare blend)

4. I will get off one stop early on the train and walk the extra way to work to clear my head.

Wish me luck.

It's all about attitude.

A Chair Is Still A Chair - Except When It's More Than a Chair - SOMA ERGO

OMG. What a difference a chair makes.

I "test drove" this chair a while back. However, when I changed firms, the chair went back to its rightful owners. Soma Ergo.

And even though this particular modeled is designed with court reporters in mind (you'll notice the cut out in the seat for the steno machine), it's just the perfect fit for me.

For the last ten months, I've been sitting in a chair that is too small, too low, too hard, too uncomfortable to sit in all day.

But, now I'm one happy camper. The cool thing about SOMA Ergo is that they customize their chairs and equipment to suit your individual needs. I like to be different, so my chair is two-toned. "Extreme Makeover - Chair Edition."

A chair is NOT just a chair.

Enjoy your Hump Day!
