Hi, guys! Happy, happy, HAPPY almost Friday to you! (I’m publishing this baby a little early this week.) We have quite the fun-filled weekend planned, and I can’t wait for it to get started!
On Saturday, we’re planning to get our sweat on at CrossFit followed by some playtime at Hanover Day. We had such a fun time last year, and Designed to Fit Nutrition is actually one of the event’s gold sponsors, so I don’t want to miss it! On Sunday, we’re headed up to Stowe Mountain Lodge for a couple of nights. The resort invited us for a media trip – and you guys know how much we love Vermont, so it was an easy decision to take them up on their offer. We can’t wait!
Since it’s (almost) Friday and all, here’s the next addition of What I’m Loving Lately, which is quite the mix of my current favorites. Enjoy! And I hope you have an awesome weekend!
Corkcicle Tumbler – Mal bought me one of these tumblers for my birthday, and I was so excited when I opened it! Awhile back, one of his students gifted one to him (I think as a thank you for writing a college letter of recommendation), and he uses it every single day for his iced coffee. He’ll often drink an iced coffee with breakfast and then bring one with him in the car to school. He’ll leave the tumbler in his car all day, and it will STILL have ice in it when it comes home – even in the warmer months. These Corkcicle tumblers work so well – and they’ll keep cold drinks cold for up to 9 hours and hot ones warm for 3 hours. They are awesome, and I am so excited to have my very own!
The surprising truth about sugar – Really interesting article from Precision Nutrition!
Greek Yogurt Pancakes – An oldie, but goodie recipe! I had these babies a few times this week for breakfasts and snacks!
The new Glycerin 15 – My favorite running sneakers just got an upgrade! They’re still supportive and cushion-y, but now they’re even more accommodating to your needs, including adaptable cushioning, a plush upper that surrounds your foot with the ability to move and expand with your stride, pressure zones to evenly disperse impact away from your body for an effortless ride, and Air Mesh with four-way stretch that expands with your foot and provides ventilation. They’re truly the best shoes, and I love running in them!
Running miles to lose weight? You’re wasting your time – Interesting article!
Polar summer seltzer flavors – Anyone else (weirdly) excited about the summer flavors?! Say hello to mango berry, pineapple grapefruit, raspberry rosé, watermelon margarita, and strawberry sunrise! I love all of them so far with mango berry and raspberry rosé being my top picks right now. I ordered them from Boxed, but they’re sold in grocery stores too!
POPCORNERS – Ok, I’m probably late to the party with regard to this snack, but they are so frickin’ good and you can eat like a million of them for not many calories. They were the perfect snack for a long ride home from White Plains, New York a couple of weeks ago. I’m a big fan!
Trello – Trello has been LIFE-CHANGING for my work life. Holy cow, I can’t believe I managed to get anything done before discovering Trello. It’s a free web-based project management application that utilizes boards, lists, and cards as well as checklists, due dates, and more to keep you organized. I love that it helps layout your To Do list nice and neat, so you can visually understand what and when things need to get done. I am obsessed!
Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer – I know that I mentioned this product in a previous post, but I am truly in love with it. It’s so perfect for summer, and I love how quickly and easily it goes onto my skin. Most days, it’s the only product I use on my skin in the morning. If I’m feeling a little dry, I’ll use moisturizer and then the Dew Skin, but, seriously, it makes getting ready so fast! Related: I recently tried the Tint Skin Foundation for some added coverage (I have a bit of pigmentation on my forehead) and it runs quite a bit lighter than I expected. I ordered Linen, and, unfortunately, it’s too light for my summer skin. I probably should have opted for Sand – not that I’m super tan or anything like that – I just think the Linen will be a better match come fall or winter. Just wanted to pass along that info just in case you’re thinking about trying it yourself. When it comes to the Dew Skin, I’m a shade 2 right now, and it’s perfect!
