I get excited about weird things, like Jersey Shore, 80’s Fitness Fads, Barney Butter, new Body Pump releases, and eating breakfast at the Wheelhouse Diner. Other people probably don’t find these things all that cool, but that’s okay. We all have our “things” that make us happy, right? Well, here’s another thing to add to my list! (Yes, I’m a mega dork.)
So, you know the stainless steel straws that I use every morning in my iced coffee? Well, these babies are FINALLY in my OpenSky shop! Yes!!!!!
For many months, the folks at OpenSky have been looking high and low for a seller who produces stainless steel straws. About a week ago, they finally found one and now you can buy them in my shop.
This Opensky exclusive is a variety pack of surgical-grade stainless steel straws. It includes 4 large straws, 4 small straws, and 1 straw cleaning brush. (I don’t use a brush; I just throw my straws in the dishwasher.) The large straws measure 9.5″ in length and the small straws measure 7″ in length. They are dishwasher safe and have a bend for your sipping pleasure!
I used to use a plastic straw every morning in my iced coffee and just throw it away. These straws are environmentally-friendly and budget-friendly. You’ll never have to buy a straw again and you’ll help keep all of those plastic straws out of our landfills!
Ok, I’m done geeking-out about stainless steel straws! 😉
After breakfast, I hit the gym for a Body Pump class. I haven’t been to BP in at least 2 weeks, so I was jazzed to attend class today. Unfortunately, my body didn’t feel the same way. I felt soooo weak! I even decreased my weight on a few tracks and, by the end of class, my whole body felt like jello. I guess I need to be a little more consistent with my strength training, huh?
I definitely struggled to get through class, but the whole time I kept thinking to myself: Exercise should make you strong, not skinny. (Wise words from Katie of Sweet Tater.) Reminding myself why I was exercising motivated me to push through to the end of each track. Simply thinking about becoming stronger made me feel that way.
When I got home, I threw together a soft taco with leftovers from last night’s dinner. I know some people hate leftovers, but I love them!
On the side, I enjoyed a sweet, ripe peach.

For this week’s post, I wrote about my fancy dinner at the Top of the Hub: 4 Skinny Tricks for Enjoying a Diet Splurge Guilt-Free.
I have a busy afternoon ahead: packing for Orlando, heading downtown for a Starbucks event, and then meeting friends for drinks. See ya! 😎
