Is it just me or is this year flying by? How is today the last day of March? Not that I mind. This has been a tough month and the weather hasn’t quite caught up to the fact that its spring. I am hoping that April brings easier days and high temperatures. I’ll cheers my kombucha to that!
This weekend will be low key and I am trying to ignore the fact that we might get snow tomorrow. Other than an Orangetheory class and my normal weekend meal prep, I am hoping to convince SL to do something fun on Sunday.
And without further ado, here are this week’s Friday Favorites!
Friday Favorites #82
S Town Podcast
Have you listened to the new podcast by the makers of Serial and This American Life? They released all 7 episodes earlier this week and I listened to all of them. S Town is short for Shit Town and investigates a story from a small town in Alabama where the son of a wealthy family has allegedly been bragging that he got away with murder. But then everything changes and who you think is dead isn’t – but someone else is.
Brooks Boston Marathon Sneaker
Every year I fall in love with Brooks’ Marathon Edition shoe and this year, I bought them. I’ve been running in Brooks Launch 4s for a few weeks now and have had some of the best runs. These cuties won’t be on my feet until mid next week but I couldn’t wait to feature them in my Friday Favorites.
I finally remembered to try Halo Top. Yes, I am the last person on Earth to do so but better late than never.
I picked up the salted caramel and cookies & cream flavors and enjoyed both. The salted caramel stole the show for me while cookies & cream was SL’s favorite. My next try will be tries will be birthday cake and chocolate chip cookie dough.
S’well Water Bottle
Have I talked about this yet? I don’t think so. I love love love my s’well water bottle. It was a Christmas gift from my parents and I legit use it every single day.
The s’well keeps my water nice and chilly during my studio classes and my treadmill runs. These bottles are made from a non-leaching and non-toxic stainless steel and are triple-walled, so no condensation forms on the exterior.
While placing a Thrive Market (<– referral link) order last week, I came across maca powder and bought it on a whim.
The Thrive Market website describes it best:
This Andean superfood has been used in traditional healing for thousands of years. Found in the pristine Junín valley in Peru, 14,000 feet above sea level, maca is known to naturally support the body’s ability to adapt to stress and improve energy, vitality, and stamina. This sun-dried powder is a great addition to smoothies, cereals, elixirs, and desserts for balanced energy.
So far, I have only used it in smoothies and it added a subtle butterscotch taste to my breakfast. I’m now thinking of ways to bake with it!
AEH Favorites (of late)
Have a great Friday my friends and enjoy your weekend!
