I’m a mess right now. I have a feeling this blog post will be also. Consider yourself warned.
Morning- 6 mile treadmill run.
Evening- Taught a HIIT class and strength training class.
A little matchy matchy yesterday all the way from my Halo headband and Yurbuds to my Mizuno Inspires and coordinating shorts. (Side note- I’m in love with my Reebok BOSE sport headphones, but went with the Yurbuds because I really wanted everything to match. Yes, I know I have a problem. It’s just one of many.) It looks like my favorite deodorant didn’t have it’s game face on yesterday. How nice.
Oh yeah, I got that new book in the mail. It Starts with Food.
I’m anxious to read it. I’ve heard such good things about it. Unfortunately my attempt to read it while on the treadmill failed, but I’ll make sure to fill you in as soon as I get a chance to check it out. Have any of you read it?
So, um, let’s see. What else?
This guy came up with a new little type of workout of his own.
He may be onto something.
While he got his workout on, I whipped up a little something in the kitchen. For a quick snack to tide me over until lunch I scrambled some egg whites with cinnamon and stevia and ate them over spinach with melted coconut oil.
I thought it would be a bit plain, but it really wasn’t bad.
Speaking of egg whites, I just ordered two more huge jugs of egg whites yesterday. They have a special deal this month for free shipping.
Here’s the link to their store. (It’s an affiliate link, but to this day I have made a little more than $13. Raking it in. Ha.)
Here are the codes for free shipping.
You know you want some jugs. He he.
Oh, that reminds me. I got a little early holiday gift from my friends at Handful.
I had every intention of getting the second half of my Christmas cards in the mail yesterday. Well, I came to find out that I didn’t order enough so had to order more that won’t be ready from Costco until noon today. Isn’t that nice.
Oh my. If I saw and heard this message one more time yesterday I was going to lose it.
Siri is not my friend.
Kabocha squash is though.
That was lunch yesterday. Yep, on the coffee table. Roasted kabocha squash with cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and cocoa powder with vanilla protein frosting, peanutty chia pumpkin dip, two ingredient dark chocolate frosting and Naturally More Peanut Butter.
What am I going to do when it goes out of season?
I can’t even think about it. All I can do is stock up now.
Oh, and I’ve been forgetting to mention that we have some new snack bars we’ve been eating over here. We got some sample bars from 18 Rabbits.
All their bars are organic and they have kid friendly bars with super cute kid friendly names.
They also have mama friendly bars (also with super cute names).
My favorite- Cheeky Cherry Chocolate of course.
So last night after the gym I finally started my shopping. Yes, that’s right STARTED. I made sure I looked somewhat presentable and went for it after teaching my classes.
I got a good start on my list. I also refrained from buying this for myself even though I really wanted it.
Dinner was late. Late enough I didn’t even have time to burn the veggies.
These two hot sauces have been finding their way on my roasted brussel sprouts and other vegetables lately.
That Just Chili Hot Sauce was a gift from my friend Niki and it’s darn good.
Whoa. Lots going on in that big bad bowl of mine last night.
Okay…. moving on.
Today I’ve got some Halo goodies for you.
I wore my Halo hairband all day yesterday (and the day before).
The boys and I found our favorite hats again at the America’s Finest Half Marathon expo last August.
I can’t run in any other hat now after finding out how well these block the sweat from running into my eyes. I love them. LOVE them. I already have a black hat, a white hat and a pink hat.
(By the way, how classic is that picture of Judah picking his nose while sitting on my back. I forgot about that one. Ha.)
Well…. now I have a red one too.
Just in time for the holidays.
So much fun stuff.
This is the sweat block seal that works wonders.
I’m super excited about this new velcro feature on the headbands.
I’m also super excited to give you a little something something.
Here you go.
One winner will get a red Halo Sport Hat and a hairband.
We can be twinsies.
To enter leave me one comment here answering a question or two:
Hat or headband when you run?
Do you do your holiday shopping online or in stores?
Feel free to “like” our Halo friends on Facebook also.
Giveaway will be open until Saturday night December 23rd at 11 pm PST. Winner will be announced Monday morning. Open to US residents only.
You can still enter to win the GNC Total Lean (and do the little workout) here.
I’m thinking I should wear this new red hat and my holiday compression socks for a run and to go shopping today. How awesome would that be?
Have a great day friends!
