One Huge List of Humpday Favorites

One Huge List of Humpday Favorites

 

I know it’s not technically humpday yet, but It’s been way too long since I’ve done just a round up of favorites and I’m not promising I’ll be around for awhile since I’m so nervous about getting back into the routine and the boys starting school and everything. I really have to put trying to stay sane first. And while saying goodbye to summer is definitely not my favorite, wearing some serious arm candy to remind myself to enjoy the journey sure is.

2015-08-18 12.58.00

Last night at the gym I was tired, but knew it was the only chance this week to hit up the machines and the weights there so I went for it.

2015-08-17 18.42.162015-08-17 18.53.56

There are definitely times to rest and I’ve been doing a lot more of that these days, but then there are also definitely times to suck it up and go for it. Right?

This quote from Runner’s World pretty much sums it up.

2015-08-18 07.38.14

Okay, moving on to some favorites.

There’s really no particular order with this, just a bunch of random things that I love and really can’t do without these days.

On my easy workout days I’ve been making use of my old school battery operated elliptical. I think it’s 11 years old, but it’s still kicking. Love this thing and just love having equipment at home to workout on. It’s been so hot here I’m trying to stay inside as much as possible.

2015-08-15 09.35.09

The multi-gym is getting a lot of use too. The pull ups aren’t getting easier just yet unfortunately, but they’re getting done. We’re working on it.

I must also say that my kitchen helpers are the bomb. They are becoming pros at making cauliflower rice.

2015-08-09-14.18.05_thumb

I’m trying to get back into the whole prepping food for the week on the weekend. I think it’s going to take awhile to get back into it, but we’re getting there.

2015-08-09-14.32.02_thumb

With the cauliflower at least. Ha ha.

We’ve been starting pretty much every morning with Love Grown Foods cereal. Mighty Flakes, Super Oats or Power O’s. It all depends on our mood and it’s a really easy, yet healthy way to start the day.

2015-08-08 07.47.28

I’m currently on a a mix of original unsweetened Power O’s and chocolate Mighty Flakes chocolate kick.

Obviously I love all Silk milks. My favorites are the unsweetened almondmilk and cashewmilk, but I’ve been adding some soymilk lately to mix things up a bit.

2015-08-11 17.45.17 HDR_thumb

I get my Vega fix every single day. I take chlorella and maca and have their protein on a regular basis.

IMG_5333

I’m a fan of it all. Lately though I’ve been making a dark chocolate fudge sauce with Hershey’s dark cocoa powder and maca and some sugar free syrup or a little splenda and water. It’s divine.

2015-08-15 12.25.41

Speaking of protein though, someone was asking about the protein ice cream.

2015-08-15 12.36.57 HDR

I really is consumed around here on a regular basis and it takes awhile to master the whole making it super creamy thing. You have to keep changing the speed of the Vitamix and really, the only protein powder that makes it really creamy is Quest Nutrition protein powder. It’s seriously the best. I don’t know why it makes it more creamy, but it does.

I finished off a tub of Quest protein powder last week so I bought three replacement ones from Vitacost. Ha. This should last awhile.

2015-08-09 16.48.06

It’s best consumed while watching Bachelor in Paradise, but you know. We won’t be having time for that anymore.

2015-08-15 12.41.49

Maybe I’ll have to make time once a week.

Smile

 

I was sent a new sunscreen to try awhile ago and someone just recently asked about what sunscreen I use. I really like this one as a top layer over all the make up and what not. Here’s what the website says:

With Even The Score™ from Cosmedicine, you’ll be able to conquer your favorite outdoor activities without the interruption of sunscreen dripping into your eyes. This miracle anti-aging sun-protection product was designed with high-performance athletes in mind and also strives for endless beauty by providing your skin with scientifically-backed nutrients for a radiant, younger-looking complexion.

IMG_5335

I’m super picky about sunscreens because I sweat like crazy and hate it when it gets in my eyes or drips all down the front of my chest. This one doesn’t do that at all. It’s more like a creamy, clear consistency and I really like it. I was sent this one for free, but will be purchasing it again when I run out.

Random, but I always wear sunscreen on my lips too for when I’m teaching outside all day or running outside. I found this one on Amazon awhile back, but use it on a regular basis.

2015-08-15 08.04.35

 

Okay, let’s talk some fit gear now.

I got these new Active Pacific sunglasses from the expo on Saturday and ran with them in the race Sunday. Not only are they a cool color, but they didn’t fog or anything and I could barely feel that I had them on because they’re so light.

2015-08-16 09.45.04

Oh and the Polar V800. I mean this thing does it all and Polar Paul and I are already BFFs even though he’s a little bossy sometimes.

2015-08-11 18.34.01_thumb

Ha ha.

I’ve been wearing the Polar Loop 2 around during the day lately.

IMG_5328

They all sync together with the Polar Flow app and it’s just darn awesome. I was worried I’d set it all up wrong and everything since I’m awful with technology, but so far so good and all is working well.

IMG_5330

 

I just did a huge closet clothes drawer cleaning binge and it was so great to get rid of so many old clothes. I replaced quite a few of my Handful bras. They say that no bra should ever see a second birthday and some of mine were almost 5 years old.

Um and I just have to tell you that the new design is the best ever and they now come in camo.

IMG_5341

(That’s what I wore to the race expo to try to be cool for my boys. Ha ha.)

You know what my favorite thing about Handful bras is? You can wear them with anything. I just switch up the color everyday to match my outfit, but they even go with dresses. See?

2015-08-15 19.28.41

Oh and while we’re on favorites, don’t even get me started on that guy there. He’s my rock.

Smile

 

Oh and for when I’m really trying to look all fancy for him with my sweaty hair and all, BIC Bands has some really fun sparkly headbands.

IMG_5342

And my obsession with Mizuno keeps going strong. They have some really great gear coming out for the fall.

IMG_5338

They also now have a Wave Sayonara 3 shoe.

IMG_5339IMG_5340

I’ve been using them for my treadmill runs and love them so far. They seem a bit sturdier and heavier than the Sayonara 2. I feel like they have a little more stability and cushion, but are still a light shoe.

 

I know I’m missing a million other of my favorites, but that’s all I’ve got for now because an early bedtime is much needed for the next few night.

2015-08-13 08.00.39

That was from last week and yes, that’s my Curious George from when I was little that I recently found while cleaning out the closets. Ha ha.

Have a wonderful rest of your week! I think we’re ready. These guys have their first day of kindergarten outfits all picked out.

2015-08-14 18.19.59

Kidding. Kidding. We’ll save those for the second day of school.

Smile

Hope your school year is off to a good start! Make sure to find time to enjoy the journey!

      I see you eat Quest bars a lot. Did you notice they have added corn fiber and palm oil to them now? I think they taste disgusting now, and I dont eat corn 🙁 They used to be the only bar I ate 🙁

      • STUFT Mama says:

        I just now noticed that after you said it. I had no idea. I don’t think I’ve bought any of the updated ones yet. Have you tried them? Do they taste different?

        • Mindi says:

          They taste VERY different…bad aftertaste and the texture is totally off. I wont be buying them. They ruined my favorites…cookie and cream and Choc chip cookie dough. Although if you have had s mores or mint, those had the corn fiber and palm oil from the start 🙁

    Cauliflower rice is a must! Have you guys tried pizza with the cauliflower crust? It works!

  3. 3

    Food prep- the thing I need to do, but don’t want to do. Hahaha
    I hope the boys had a fantastic 1st day of school!
