It’s my Friday today! I’ll be flying down I-84 in the Marshmallow Mobile later on to see my sister, bro-in-law and nephew for the weekend! I am beyond excited. I will be able to spend all day Friday hanging with my sister and nephew, and enjoy some summer fun with them. So, I figured I would share my Friday Faves a day early. 😀
P.S. Yesterday in my small group training class, we did long jumps and (what felt like) a million burpees. Holy LEGS, Batman! I am waddling around (in the words of my gym girl D 😉 ) because my quads are SO sore. Those long jumps are no joke, dude! I know the Super Stems are coming (stronger legs are in the works), and hopefully will help me achieve my half-marathon time goal. 😀 RAWR! How are all my beasts doing today? Anyone else feeling the soreness?
Here’s what I’ve been feeling this week:
30 Happy Days
My trainer and good friend Sarah came up with her own “30 Happy Days” in which she is focusing on one thing a day that makes her feel good, sharing on social media and inviting everyone to chime in by posting one thing a day that makes them feel good. I LOVE this idea, and I’m totally feeling it.
Today my happy is: Not checking my phone immediately upon waking up. Instead, I’ve replaced it with setting a positive intention and focusing on that while I am waking up and welcoming the day. I want to cultivate the positive vibes early instead of spending the first moments of my day looking at a phone screen. Today’s intention: You are enough.
I had this at my sister’s house a few weekends ago when I last visited, and I am keeping my fingers crossed that they have some more to make epic dairy-free sundaes this weekend. THIS ISH IS AMAZING. It’s vegan, soy and gluten free, doesn’t contain hydrogenated oils, and tastes sooooo good. And dude, 2 tablespoons only have 30 calories and 2 grams of sugar, which means, you can eat a whole bunch of it! 😉 I would straight up eat that entire tub in one sitting. YUM. Has anyone else tried this?
To be fair, I originally snapped this pic in Davis Square because I was obsessed with how creative this mini-urban herb garden was, and how it re-purposed a shipping pallet (there are tons of them where I work, so I may be trying to see if I can adopt one, bring it home and re-create this rad set-up). SO DOPE!! Then, I went to herbstalk.org (because I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t going to be promoting something weird by posting this cool container garden) and I found out that it is “a grassroots, Boston-area herbal event.” They host classes on herbal and holistic health topics, offer urban plant walks, and bring together herbal crafters & artisans from across New England. Um…that pretty much sounds like the most stellar thing ever, now I am trying to figure out how to take their classes. They have some very cool stuff on their website, like resources and marketplace information. Very informative and useful.
4. Teeki Leggings
I am obsessed with these leggings. They’ve been around for awhile, but I fell in love with their cloud print. They are gorgeous! The best part? They are eco-friendly, sustainable and made from recycled plastic bottles. You can read all about their sustainability story here. They are made right here in the U.S. of A., too! I love, love, LOVE all their prints. It is a product that you can feel good about purchasing when you know they are good for Mother Earth. 😀
5. How Deep Is Your Love – Calvin Harris & Disciples
New favorite song to add to the running playlist! I’m planning on doing a long run while I’m in CT visiting my fam, so I stuck this song right in the middle of my long run playlist to keep powering me through those tough hills. Wish me good luck! Based on how my quads feel right now, I’m going to need it! 😉 😛
What are you guys up to this weekend? Tell me all about it in the comments.
I’d be delighted if you shared your #30HappyDays Happy Thought of the Day, too!! 😀 😀 😀
Hope you guys have a great weekend!
