Fitness Bread

Hey Guys!
I've been running around all weekend enjoying my time in the sunshine- (a big shout to madre nature for giving California some sun this weekend) but I'm back to talk about stuff other than this weekend!
I think that a great deal of my activities this weekend were accomplished thanks to the new product I tried last week- Mestemacher Fitness Bread:
Disclaimer: I bought this bread all on my own and I'm not being paid to talk about it.
Anyhoo, I loved the ingredients list (see website here):  
Rye Kernels, Water, Whole Rye Flour, Oat Kernels, Whole Wheat Flour, Wheat Germ, Sea Salt, Yeast.

Pretty simple huh? 
I tried it in a fabulous veggie sandwich one day:
As well as a lovely snack plate another day:

Working on My Fitness:
I like to think that the fitness bread got me through a 4-hour hike on Saturday and A 4-hour bike ride on Sunday, but in reality I think it had something to do with the training in the gym and the release I get from being active.  My lovely, naturally thin friend recently asked me what I'm training for.  I don't think of myself as an athlete and there is nothing that I am really training for, but I love the feeling of endorphins, lifting a little heavier, and hitting a new distance or speed on the treadmill.  I often ask myself what my motivation is now that I'm not trying to fit into a silly white dress or a bathing suit.  I think I train for my weekends (I was the only girl and kept up with all the boys!) and to be able to be active and feel good about myself.
Why do you train?

A Note About My Recent Absence
Without saying too much, the recession has hit my workplace and I'm streeeetttttcccchhhhheeeeed (stretched) to my limits these days.  Don't worry, I still read and care and get excited for your fabulous ladies, but my long hours and all that good stuff only allow a little bit of commenting and posting time, mostly after hours when I get home from school/work!  I've never been a 'here's what I eat' blogger, but my posts may become a little more sporadic but I hope you'll stick around.
Here's hoping for a productive and positive day (my new mantra)!

Wishing you the best!!

I've always wanted to try that bread. I always pick it up, read it, put it back and walk away. I can't explain why either. HA!

I love your positive energy. I can only imagine all the work you have, since the recession probably caused a lot of firing, I'm guessing? No fun.

This bread sounds interesting. I'm still confused as to why it's called fitness bread. I think it's sort of gimmicky, but it does sound very healthy!
