Grocery Outlet – The place to save for healthy eating changes!

This post includes sponsored content.

When I lost over 30 pounds 2 years ago it required me to change some aspects of my lifestyle. The biggest change was adding breakfast to my daily routine. Eating a big meal in the morning doesn’t sit well with me. No, really. Trying to eat first thing in the morning and then going to work out just made me feel sick. I tried to eat just a piece of fruit, but I quickly learned that I needed protein to get me through a 90 minute workout. Protein bars became my morning time staple.

The problem?

Protein bars are expensive! Especially the kind that are more protein than just granola bar. I quickly learned that I was spending about $30 a week on just protein bars! CRAZY!

NBC’s “The Sing Off” Live Tour coming to Oregon!

I’m not a very good singer.

No really.

You know how some people say that they aren’t a very good singer, but really they aren’t THAT bad? That’s not me.

Even so, that doesn’t change my love for listening to other people sing and nothing is more amazing to me than hearing an acapella group perform. The fact that these voices come together to sound just like the song being played on the radio completely floors me! It’s no surprise that I am a big fan of NBC’s The Sing Off. I actually have a lot of the groups that have competed, (well, the ones I could find) on my work playlist

I think it would be awesome to see the groups perform live don’t you think?

You do?!?
