Monday and Product Review

Well, I made it through the weekend, go me!  This morning was a rude awakening, completely out of milk, so no cereal (sad face) and I ran out the door without breakfast.  Lucky me however, I had my Mocha Cream Wonderslim Aspartame Free Shake at work along with my trusty shaker!

Wonderslim Mocha Cream Aspartame Free Pudding/Shake

I forgot how much I love the shakes from Wonderslim, especially the Mocha Cream and Hazelnut Cream.  They are definitely my go-to.  It’s been 3 hours since I drank my shake, and not one twinge of hunger.  Love this stuff!

Product Review: Bariwise Protein bar – Rockie Road


It’s edible, technically.    Super articicial sweetness to it, not in a good way.  Chewy, I have not determined if I managed to find a peanut in it, and would I ever buy this again?  Nope.  So far Wonderslim seems to have better tasting protein bars than Bariwise, as there are at least 2, if not 3, that I’d go crazy for (Cinnamon Crispy and Fudge graham).

I’m Puttin’ on the Big Girl Panties!

Alright, so that may not make any sense, but after a week of licking my digital wounds, I’ve decided to move on with my life, and just because I can no longer post the Ideal Protein sheets doesn’t mean I no longer have any valid knowledge on the subject.  I’ve lost weight using the alternative method, and you know what?  That’s alright!  I’m gymless tonight and tomorrow (choir rehearsal instead), but am looking forward to Wednesday when I can go work off some of this excess energy plaguing me.

I know that the scale hasn’t moved due to lack of motivation, HOWEVER I fully intend on taking measurements on the last day of the Month, so I can see how/if anything changes.  I’m really looking forward to another physical assessment  which I’ll get in June to determine if my heart and lungs have improved as well!

DietDirect Monthly Sale on Bariwise Bars

Use coupon Code 203BAR20 through March 29 for 20% off BariWise Protein Bars

If you are considering trying out the dietdirect product line, now might be the time to snatch up some Bariwise products.  The 20% discount gets the price from $11.95/box of 7 down to a more manageable $9.56/box.  The reason this offer excludes cases is that Bariwise knocks the price down on cases by 20% anyways, so double dipping on discounts is kind of a no-no.  In other news, Wonderslim has a handful of their puddings on sale this week, about $10.15 / box of 7, including the caramel and butterscotch flavors (both of which I intend to try at some point).

Product Review: Wonderslim Snack Bar – Cookie Dough

So, this morning I realize I’m completely out of my Meal Replacement Bars, so that only leaves me with “Snack Bars”.  You may be wondering what the difference is.  Well, a snack bar only has 10g of protein, rather than its higher counterpart, the meal replacement bar, which has 15g.

Basic nutrition breaks down as follows:

Calories: 150

Now, on to the review!

Appearance:  This bar appears pretty small, maybe a half inch thick, 3″ long at the most and about 1.5-2″ wide, more like the 1.5″ mark.  Unable to see any cookie dough as it is all coated in chocolate.

First bite: Yay!  Cookie dough, like the raw kind you buy in the tubs consistency.  No chocolate chip “crunch”s though, you know when you get a chip and you’re in the middle of dissolving the rest of the dough in your mouth?  Sorry, no chips in these, maybe “fake” chocolate chips, but nothing with crunch.  Flavor is good though, and no aftertaste to speak of.

Nibble vs. Shovel: Either or in this case.  I should have shoveled, as I accidentally dropped a small piece that ended up being eaten by my garbage-disposal-of-a-dog, but aside from that, each bite it pretty much the same, no taste acquisition necessary.

Buy Again?: I bought a sample pack from Wonderslim that included the cookie dough, but haven’t tried the remaining 6 bars, so can’t say if I’d buy the sample packet again.  Would I buy the snack bars of cookie dough?  Yeah, sure, why not 🙂
