Good morning and happy Friday to you!
The weekend is almost here, which means it’s time for another Friday favorite: What I’m Loving Lately! I missed last week’s post, so I have quite the round-up for you guys this morning. Enjoy!
Coconut protein powder in my (hot) coffee – Of course, I love mixing it into my iced coffee, but it makes an incredible afternoon pick-me-up in hot coffee too. Just mix 12 ounces of coffee (not too hot) in a shaker with one scoop of SFH Coconut Fuel. OMG, it’s so delicious… sweet, but not too sweet with a punch of protein!
How to Cook Spaghetti Squash in the Microwave – Super simple and just 12 minutes. Definitely beats baking it for 45+ minutes!
Post Baby Bod Plan – I’m so excited to tell you guys about Gina’s (aka The Fitnessista) new Post Baby Bod website that launch earlier this week! It includes a safe and an effective, 12-week training plan with detailed workouts to help you gain strength and endurance after having a baby. The plan won’t officially release until March, but Gina is accepting pre-orders right now and anyone who orders before Monday will receive a free 4-week meal plan and recipe ebook, so definitely check it out if you’re in the market for a post-baby shape-up!
Meet the chef who decides what Tom Brady eats—and what he definitely doesn’t – Super interesting and his diet sounds a lot like what I’m aiming for with mine.
This watercolor family portrait – Adorable, right? I especially love the little Murphy with his head tilt. Too cute. Heidi from HydeTheWildBoar captured our family in this watercolor painting so well. She has an Etsy shop, so if you’re interested in purchasing one yourself, you can save 10% with code CNC10 until January 31, 2016.
Avocado Chicken Tortilla Soup – This soup looks easy and delicious, so it’s on my meal plan for next week.
Start Your Year (and Wallet) Off Right With the Best New Trader Joe’s Items – Pretzel croissants and Kale + Hemp Seed Salad? Yes, please!
Corkcicle Wine Chiller – Love this thing! All wine drinkers need one!
The #1 Habit You Should Have to Lose Weight – Spoiler: It’s “Find people to share your journey,” which made me think of a recent KFIT blog post about a woman, who has lost 20 pounds, 3 dress sizes, and a lot of inches since joining 6 months ago. Her story is like so many people’s (mine included!) and what ultimately worked for her was an amazing community to share her journey with!
The Live Well Event at Target – Lots of great deals on workout gear at Target right now!
Want to Save $100? Try These Really Strange Tricks At the Grocery Store – This was really good!!
Watching The Adventures of Milo and Otis with Quinn for the first time – It was seriously the highlight of my whole week. Milo and Otis was one of my favorite movies growing up (I owned an orange cat and was obsessed with pugs from a young age), so I loved being able to share it with him. Quinn loved it and pointed and said “uh oh” like a million times during it and then laughed hysterically when the pugs ran and played together. It was so cute!
Our gratitude jar – Recent additions: How Quinn says “hello” and “soy sauce,” podcasts, Remicade, and our jobs and how they allow us to spend time with our family.
