February LOVE & Giveaway



Guess who was able to run outside yesterday morning?!

6 miles outside

I didn’t have my Lulu neck warmer but it was fine; the temperature in the morning was above freezing and the first snow flakes of the day didn’t start until I was almost done with my run.

I may not love February weather but I do LOVE the things I am about to share with you today!

Have you seen February’s Pro Compression sock of the month yet?

Happy National Frozen Yogurt Day!

Lots of frozen yogurt stores are honoring the holiday so be sure to check to see if your local shop is offering a discount or something special.

In my quest to find out if Red Mango had a deal for today, I came across the coolest thing ever.

Did you know that Barbie had a Frozen Yogurt shop? I would have loved to play with this.

I would still love to play with this.

And how about the FIRST EVER limited edition LOVE product in honor of LOVE month!

    This is my type of holiday!! My favorite cereal when I was younger is a toss up between – lucky charms, cinnamon toast crunch, and captain crunch. Oh and fruit loops! Geez I haven’t had those in forever. Happy Friday!

    P.S. Yay for running outside!

      I liked Peanut Butter Captain Crunch. I think I saw a new Captain Crunch out in Target the other day but I forget what kind it was.

  • Carmella DiPippa February 6, 2015, 7:37 am

    Happy that you could finally run outdoors again, still cold her in PA but have been hitting the roads.
    My favorite cereal, Coco Puffs, yes loves me some chocolate!!!!!!!
    Have a great day!

  • Susie @ SuzLyfe February 6, 2015, 7:40 am

    And cue the choirs of the gods–National Froyo day. ER. MI. GERD. Long run fuel anyone?
    Team Cheerios. My favorite of all time. I still hate that they were taken away from me.

    In my house we have the milk/no milk discussion every morning! This morning my son actually tried almond milk in his puffins and liked that. My girls can’t stand the mushiness so have milk on the side 🙂

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles February 6, 2015, 2:04 pm

      I always liked my cereal a bit mushy but only a drop of milk. Not too much. I guess liking mushy cereal goes along with liking oatmeal lol.

  • Sarah February 6, 2015, 8:14 am

    As a kid we always had many different boxes of cereal, my two favs were fruity pebbles and cookie crisp. Man just thinking of those leaves a waxy film feeling in my mouth….I can’t even remember the last time I had cereal for breakfast.

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles February 6, 2015, 2:03 pm

      I don’t know how I functioned eating Cocoa Pebbles for breakfast. I loved Cookie Crisp too! And Fruity Pebbles. And Waffle Crisp. And Life. I really loved Life.

  • Shannon February 6, 2015, 8:16 am

    I always loved cocoa puffs!

  • Taca @ A Side Of Dessert February 6, 2015, 8:20 am

    Oh wow, I can’t believe you ran outside! Good for you! I’ll definitely be getting frozen yogurt ha ha. Enjoy your weekend!

    I have a hard time remembering that the O’s are made from beans too — they don’t taste anything like it. And I’ve been a diehard Cinnamon Toast Crunch girl for as long as I can remember. Always with milk. Lots and lots of milk so that I can drink up the super sugar saturated leftovers 😉

    I’ll be traveling today so maybe there will be some fro-yo in the airport! I’m gonna try to not go overboard with eating tons of sugar-grains-alcohol this week and completely shock my system since I haven’t had any of that stuff in over a month, but I’m sure a little bit will be fine:)

    Lucky Charms have always been my favorite cereal! I’m hoping to be able to find some group today to celebrate!

  • kelsey February 6, 2015, 8:44 am

    I used to love Oat Bran as a kid and thought I was choosing a tasty, yet healthy, cereal…ignorance is bliss as a child!

  • Morgan February 6, 2015, 9:27 am

    I’m definitely going to have to celebrate national fro-yo day! Favorite cereal as a kid was Captain Crunch!

  • emily g February 6, 2015, 9:48 am

    My parents never let me have junk cereals so OF COURSE I craved them. I loved any kind that turned the milk sugary/chocolatey with cocoa krispies and cinnamon toast crunch coming in on top.

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles February 6, 2015, 2:00 pm

      The milk from Cocoa Pebbles was the best!

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles February 6, 2015, 2:06 pm

      I always liked Cocoa Pebbles over Cocoa Krispies – there was the slightest of differences and I noticed it! lol

  • Suzy February 6, 2015, 10:13 am

    I’m Canadian, but it’s Cinnamon Toast Crunch, all the way baby! With milk. I’m so glad you got to run outside!!! YAHOO!

      I am hoping to run outside tomorrow too but I am not sure yet – ugh.

  • Caroline M February 6, 2015, 10:24 am

    My favorite cereal when I was little was probably a tossup between Corn Pops and Froot Loops. But my mom only let me ever have them on vacations! Now I’m very thankful for that, haha! I’m definitely a cereal with milk kind of person, and I think almond milk is especially delicious on cereal! Off to find some froyo!

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles February 6, 2015, 1:59 pm

      Haha, right?! The cereals we wanted to eat as kids – now we understand why our parents would limit it! I would have eaten bowl after bowl of Cocoa Pebbles for breakfast.

  • Judith February 6, 2015, 11:03 am

    I loved Reese’s Puffs! The chocolate and peanut butter milk at the end was amazing!

  • Kirtley Freckleton @ The Gist of Fit February 6, 2015, 11:16 am

    Oh gosh Meredith. Come to Utah and run with me. I went trail running yesterday and it felt like a perfect spring morning–no snow, sunny, happy, and I was sweating!!! Like…becuase the weather was so nice haha. I didn’t realize I missed weather sweat.

    Josh and I are totally addicted to frozen yogurt. We’re going today.

    Have the best weekend ever!!

  • Kirtley Freckleton @ The Gist of Fit February 6, 2015, 11:17 am

    lucky charms! i try to buy the ones made by organic and natural food companies now, so i can at least pretend to not be eating tons of sugary cereal 🙂

  • Caitlin A. February 6, 2015, 3:43 pm

    I loved Cocoa puffs because of the texture and of course the chocolate taste! I am lactose intolerant but always enjoy my cereal with almond milk instead or even top it on my protein shakes. Plus its always a handy snack to pack along as well by itself!

    Sometimes my stomach can handle fro-yo and I did just get a buy one get one free for our local shop…might just have to go by today!

  • Danielle February 6, 2015, 4:06 pm

    My favorite cereal when I was a kid was Cocoa Krispies! I used to wait with my mom in the mornings before school. I would love to try this new cereal. That company is incredible!

  • Sarah February 6, 2015, 4:24 pm

    Honey Nut Cheerios was just the best!

  • niki fahey February 6, 2015, 8:59 pm

    rice krispies with extra sugar!

  • Tracy February 6, 2015, 9:13 pm

    Once when my mom went away, my dad took us to the grocery store (& being totally clueless to the fact that my mom severely limited out sugar intake) allowed us to pick out a cereal. To this day, I still remember the Ninja Turtle Ninja Nets cereal as the best I have ever had!! I am sure it was gone by the time my mom returned home!

  • Kaylin @ Enticing Healthy Eating February 6, 2015, 11:32 pm

    The new LoveGrown Power O’s have definitely stolen my heart! As a kid I ate probably the sugariest (is that a word?) cereal I could. I loved Captain Crunch, Cocoa Pebbles, Fruity Pebbles, and Frosted Flakes. Yep. And I want to play with the Barbie frozen yogurt shop too…sad, but true.

    When I was a kid I LOVED when my mom would buy us those small boxes of cereal (which was more of a treat, she wouldn’t always buy them) that had a sample of everything and since I’m a “save the best for last” girl I always saved Corn Pops box for last!!

  • Lauren February 7, 2015, 1:18 pm

    I liked Frosted Flakes as a kid.

  • nadya kotik February 7, 2015, 10:53 pm

    I grew up in Ukraine and there was no cereal, but I got Kix in packages from US from my uncle and we were so excited to eat them!

  • Bonnie February 7, 2015, 11:11 pm

    My favorite cereal as a kid was probably Honey Nut Shredded Wheat. Always with milk. I haven’t had it in years!

  • Ashlee February 8, 2015, 7:18 am

    Lucky charms and Reese’s puffs 🙂

  • Melissa H February 8, 2015, 10:24 am

    Favorite cereal when I was a kid…hmm. That’d be a tie between Reese’s puffs and Cocoa Krispies, but these look DELICIOUS! Now that I’m more mindful of what I put into my body, it’s so important to me that companies like this exist! Xo

  • Itzia February 8, 2015, 4:43 pm

    My favorite cereal was honey nut cheerios

  • Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets February 8, 2015, 4:50 pm

    That’s awesome you got to run outside today. We actually had 48 degree weather today and I wanted to run so bad. It wasn’t meant to be though. Next time for sure.

    My favorite cereal growing up was a toss up between Lucky Charms and Frosted Flakes. Basically anyway to get sugar. Those were special occasions though.

  • Andrea February 8, 2015, 9:20 pm

    I loved french toast crunch!

  • Angie Jerde February 8, 2015, 11:19 pm

    My favorites were Golden Grams and Honey Combs!
