Happy Friday, my lovely readers!
Today I am sharing a few summery things I’m crushing on lately. Then, it’s a short day at work because I’m cruising up-state for the 3.5 mile Moonshine Trail Run tonight!
To sip >> Yogi Muscle Recovery Green Tea — iced! I’ve been making pitchers of this tea and sticking it in the fridge for a refreshing lunch or afternoon beverage. Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammaoty; hence, why it’s great for active bodies.
To break a fast >> Organic Honey Chia Bread* (from Costco) with Trader Joe’s organic crunchy peanut butter, sliced banana, cinnamon, and local honey — I can’t get enough of this… seriously, I wake up craving it every morning. It’s too hot for beloved oatmeal.
*I still eat a relatively low-gluten diet, but it appears in my “diet” from time to time… like with organic whole grain bread with simple ingredients.
To indulge >> Trader Joe’s Coconut Caramel (70%) Dark Chocolate bar — holy yum! I am not typically a caramel gal, but this bar is divine. No, it’s not organic and doesn’t have the best ingredient list, but I’m not eating it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner ;)
To get outside >> Evening walks with P. It’s been so gosh dang hot, that it’s not the least bit appetizing to run in 100+F degree weather; this means, on work days, I stick to indoor workouts, and when the sun sets, I shake out my legs with a light stroll.
To train >> Night runs. As I just mentioned, running in triple digits isn’t my cup of tea, but when you have a race to train for, sometimes 9:00pm runs at a cool 97F are necessary.
To soften my strands >> Macadamia™ Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment — My hair likes to get poofy in the summertime – ugh – so adding a drop to my ends helps to tame my mane and keep the ends moisturized.
Check out my other summer beauty must haves.
To feel free >> Ditching the scale. Oh, how good it feels to live intuitively and guilt-free.
