Hello darlings! Sorry for the dearth of new recipes this week, I’ve been eating my mom’s pasta and sauce for leftovers all week long – the perfect way to carbo-load as a half Italian! 😉 What a crazy week, I feel like it has flown by. Tomorrow I’ll be getting down and dirty in the Great Northeast Tough Mudder – I’m wicked nervous and excited! I can’t wait!!
Let’s get to it: what I’ve been feeling this week 😉
Um, I picked up one of these bad boys up at Tar-gay for $3.88 (!!!!!) from the clearance rack. WHAT. I know that this sound pretty hypocritical coming from the girl who almost always wears head-to-toe Lulu to workout in, but you CAN find super cute workout clothes without spending a mortgage payment. I’ll be wearing this bad boy for the Tough Mudder tomorrow. 😀
2. Michelle Wie’s Rainbow Hair
#HairGoals! SO COOL! I love the Michelle is shaking things up in the generally conservative golfing world. The most impressive part? She colored her hair HERSELF!! Check out her Instagram for the proof. So rad.
3. Sephora’s Ombre Seamless Hair Ties
I just chopped a solid 3+ inches off my curls because they literally felt like straw and I was over trying to detangle my weave every morning. The worst part was trying to pull out my hair elastic after getting sweaty at the gym – it felt like it was impossible! I highly recommend these elastics from Sephora that won’t rip or damage your hair – and that’s coming from a girl who wears her hair in a pineapple on the top of her head every day (when I’m not at work/trying to look super cute, of course).
4. Harbinger Women’s Flex Fit Weight Lifting Gloves
Omg you guys, I can’t believe I forgot to tell you about these!!! I love these training gloves! I got them this summer – I finally caved because my hands were covered in calluses and looking pretty ratched (not the first impression I want to make when I shake someone’s hand). They are AWESOME. They have leather and gel-filled pads on the palms to help with grip, and the backside are mesh so that you hands can breathe. And they are PURPLE, hello. They stay put, protect my hands and help me push through workouts without tearing up my palms. Stellar all around, I highly recommend them to gals who are training/lifting.
5. These Astronomy Photos
If you guys have been following along, I’m pretty amped about astronomy and what we can see in the night sky – it’s fascinating. Check out this article on io9 for more of these beautiful images. Stunning.
What are you guys up to this weekend?? I’ll be doing the Tough Mudder bright and early tomorrow, eating a whole (vegan) pizza afterwards and then passing out at a sufficiently Grandma Hour, then Sunday I’m giving myself a FULL rest day before I get back into training for my next half marathon in 23 days! Also, I’ll probably be totally beat. 😉 Tell me what you’re up to this weekend in the comments! ❤
Think of me tomorrow at 9 AM EST! I’ll be diving into the mud right about then.
