Welcome to Fitness Friday.
Thank you for taking the time to visit during this wonderfully busy time of year.
Not a whole lot of time this morning. I’ve been unplugged a lot the past few days and didn’t have today’s post ready until, well, now. My daughter and I are headed out for our annual Black Friday shopping adventure. We’ve been doing this since she was about 2. We haven’t missed a single year and she’s almost 17. A tradition I hope always continues no matter how old she is.
Alex and Ani bangles. I wear these 2 everyday and I have 2 more on my wishlist.
My slowly growing collection of essential oils. I love experimenting with oil combinations for the aromatherapy diffuser in my office. One of my latest favorite combinations, revitalize and refocus with eucalyptus, tangerine and peppermint oils.
There are a handful of products I’ve been introduced to with brand partnerships that I continually buy. Love Grown Foods Hot Oats Cup is one of those products. Whole foods with convenience. The easy to make Hot Oats Muffin topped with yogurt (+ Skoop protein powder) has been on my list of favorites a lot lately.
I rarely use anything other than Bare Minerals for skin care and make-up. That changed with my new found love of skin care by Lush Cosmetics. I love the brand philosophy and, honestly, the store is fun to shop at. The best part, the all natural ingredients. Like in the face mask, peppermint, kaolin, and aduki beans. Some of the pots have to be stored in the refrigerator to preserve freshness.
“No words can adequately describe the sense of combined relief and amazement to be experienced at the Rock.”
That quote is referring to the last thing on my favorites list right now, my husband’s excitement and enthusiasm for a race he has signed up to run in July 2016. Oddly named The Last Annual Volunteer State Road Race. It’s not really the last annual. According to Ultra Signup: It begins with a ferry ride across the Mississippi River, from Missouri to Kentucky, and finishes at “the Rock,” high atop Sand Mountain in Northeast Georgia. What lies in between are 314 miles of the great unknown. Success is not guaranteed. There are no aid stations, teeming with volunteers waiting to tend to your every need and encourage you to continue. There are just miles and miles of empty road.
Get this, the race filled in 2015. Wait what!?!
The race in itself is a cool concept, but it’s Chad’s excitement and energy that I’m loving. You can see it in his face when he talks about the event.
What’s on your list of favorites? Would you ever consider running 300 + miles? Have you had the pleasure of shopping at Lush Cosmetics?
be the best version of YOU
