1. I tried kombucha a few months ago, and I wasn’t thrilled. I’m not sure if it was the flavor or not, but I stopped by Fresh Market yesterday and saw this:
I’m in love. I’m a kombucha convert if this is what I can get my hands on every time. It’s pretty fun to drink, too…kind of reminds me of that drink “Orbitz” that was around only for a little while when I was younger. Remember this?
2. This is on its way to my house as we speak:
A graduation present from my hubby!!! Woooooo hooooo!! (I can’t tell you how excited I am to have yet another amazing Nike something in my fit collection. ) I plan to be donning this beauty for a long time.3. I meal planned yesterday…and cleaned out my pantry and refrigerator. Classes end this week, and I’m ecstatic, because my meal creativity has suffered terribly. So I planned and got ready to really revamp my diet. No use in training for a race I won’t be healthy for, right? I started the day off with this, thanks to my refreshing new stock of healthy eats:
Plum & Coconut Muesli. Oh yes.
51 g muesli (I used Great Grains)
1 tbs raw flaked coconut
4 oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tbs raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 of a plum
Throw it in a bowl. It’s that simple.
4. Jess and Jo , two fabulous friends of mine, convinced me that barre workouts would be beneficial to my running training. Jess even wrote a post today explaining why running + barre works . (Gotcha back, friend!) I have a portable ballet bar (thanks, honey!!!) and a set of Physique 57 workout DVDs ready to go, and I plan to work yoga into the mix as well. (And would you believe I actually have this all penciled in!?! Write it down everyone…Melissa actually set plans.)
5. I’m one week away from graduating with a big fat 4.0…and I couldn’t be happier. I haven’t seen that GPA since high school. Hey, I’m my girls’ role model, remember? Their pediatrician insists the girls will be taller than 5’10. Maybe a momma can hope and see one of her little girls end up on the UCONN women’s team…;). I’ve busted some booty this past year, and I couldn’t have done it without all the support, that’s for sure. So, I’m heading into finals this week, and I’ll be done! Yee!
What are you loving this wonderful Friday?
