Here are a few things I’m loving lately…..
Dry Shampoo. I just got this and I’m obsessed. I feel like a whole new world has been opened up to me. A world in which my hair has more volume and texture, and in which skipping a day (or two!) washing my hair doesn’t automatically mean a ponytail day. My hair can look possibly even more fabulous on the second or third day! I never thought this would be possible for me.
Steel Cut Oats. Trying to cut back on refined carbs and sugar, I started having steel cut oats for breakfast instead of cold cereal. I usually add blueberries, ground flaxseed, and nuts of some kind (which I buy in giant bags from Costco and store in the freezer). It’s a filling and tasty breakfast, and I feel like I’m doing something right for my body.
Planet Fitness. I joined this gym last month and I am so happy about it. It’s two blocks away (a 3 minute walk), it’s $10 a month with no contract or commitment, and I have loved being able to work out every day! Lately my shin splints have been flaring up, so I was getting frustrated and feeling like there was no way for me to exercise and there was nothing I could do about it. Now I’m doing something about it, and my 40 minutes a day watching Teen Wolf on the elliptical feels great.
Speaking of Teen Wolf… as dumb as it sounds, I actually really like it. A friend at work suggested it and I gave it a try. The first few episodes I wasn’t really sold, but I persevered and ended up liking it. Not as good as Vampire Diaries, but a great substitute while we’re waiting for the next season.
