Hi, guys! Happy FRIDAY!
First things first: My my leggings are only available for a few more days! If you’re thinking about purchasing a pair, you can get 10% off with promo code carrotsncake. You won’t be able to purchase them after the deadline, so be sure to hop on it! 🙂 So, it’s Friday and you know what that means: It’s time for the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately! Here we go!
Meathead Hippie podcast by Emily Schromm – New favorite podcast alert! The show’s description immediately caught my attention: “Deadlifts and squats meets lemon balm and lavender.” Sign me up! Emily Schromm is a personal trainer, CrossFit coach, and Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and talks about all of my favorite topics – from fitness and food to hormones and beauty products to motivation and mindset. Love!
Natori True Natori T-Shirt Convertible Underwire Bra – I mentioned this bra a few weeks ago, but it deserves another mention since it’s truly the best bra, especially if you’re someone who typically has trouble finding good ones. I own 3 of these bras and want to add more to my collection. I buy them on Zappos, which means free shipping both ways. You can try the bra on at home and send it back if it doesn’t fit!
Annie’s organic mustards – I’m loving these mustards and putting them on everything lately! Favorites: Organic Dijon Mustard, Organic Horseradish, and Organic Honey Mustard. FYI: The Dijon and honey mustard are available on Thrive Market for way less than Whole Foods! FYI2: Thrive Market is offering a sweet deal right now, which got me to officially sign up: Save 20% on your first 3 orders! And their prices are so much cheaper than Whole Foods!
Joe Yoon, LMT aka @joetherapy on Instagram – He shares simple muscle releasing and stretching videos, which are super helpful. Check him out!
Lightstim for Acne – I finally bit the bullet and purchased a LED light for acne. I went back and forth for a couple months about whether I should buy one or not (would it work?), but then I listened to a podcast about acne that said blue and red lights can help. The lights calm existing blemishes and prevent new ones from forming by decreasing acne-causing bacteria while soothing redness and inflammation. I’ve only used it for a few weeks now, but it’s definitely reduced the number of breakouts I’ve had. I’ll report back in a few more weeks – I want to see how it works with my menstrual cycles and hormones, specifically at certain times of month when I tend to breakout.
The Fitnessista Fit Guides – I love this idea so much! Gina is offering customized workouts – ones that fit your personality and fitness level. Whether you’re new to exercise, just had a baby, or someone who is more experienced, she has a fit guide available for you. Be sure to check them out!
The Revolutionary Space Saving Ice Cube Maker– Have you guys seen this thing? I saw a post on Instagram about it and think I need one in my life. Supposedly, it makes 120 ice cubes at once and replaces 10 ice cube trays. How cool is that!? Hello, space-saver! Plus, it would make filling a (small/medium) cooler for the beach/travel a zillion times easier!
Death to the 1,200 Calorie Mentality – Great blog post from one of our Registered Dietitians!
Champion Striped Sweatshirt – I received a few questions about this sweatshirt on Instagram, so I wanted to share the details here too. It’s definitely a new favorite and super affordable at just $33. I see myself wearing it a ton this summer to the beach when the temps drop.
How to have a healthy mindset for bikini season – Love this!
P.S. Here’s the Week 5 Meal Plan. You’ll notice some changes, which I’ll explain next week!
