It’s the new year so I feel this quote is appropriate, as we’re all thinking about making 2016 memorable:
“If you’re tired of starting over, stop giving up.”
This really hits home with me, especially since last week I had zero time to exercise, which led me to eat terribly, and then generally felt guilty/gross/overwhelmed for days on end. There are a few things which get me out the door, however. The downside is that it usually involves spending money. It is what it is. Whenever I buy some new workout gear, it really motivates me!
This Lululemon tech tee is amazing. It is pricey, yes, but I’ve had such a great experience with this running shirt that I’m here to tell you, you will never get another one again once you have this on. It does not chafe, it is so soft, and it stays put so I’m not running around doing belly drive-by’s down Genesee Street. (Too common an occurrence, I assure you)
**Time for the food portion of this blog post!!**
My heart died a little when I found out that some movie theater’s no longer pop their own fresh popcorn. (This seriously was a big old sad face, as one of my favorite things is hot-and-ready movie popcorn)
Things I can’t get enough of: This lazy-man’s dinner (vegetarian fajitas)…
I make this lunch nearly every day and, while it is highly caloric (seeds, cheese and avocado… sue me), it is the one thing that fills me up after my run and keeps me focused for at least the next 8 minutes.
Homemade chocolate chip cookies, you are my spirit animal…
I made them twice this week. You didn’t get any because I ate them. I ate them all.
Does anyone else have a bizarre fascination with those Tip Hero or Tasty videos that show you how to make something fabulous in a 30 second time-lapse video? And it all looks so easy? Let me tell you, I’ve tried a few. They are neither easy, nor do they turn out fabulous. Doesn’t stop me from watching every single one on my Facebook feed though.
Utica Coffee Roasters has been up and running in Clinton and I finally got the chance to visit there! (Thank you, Meredith!) They really do have amazing flavors.
Juxtapose magazine is something you should check out if you get a chance (you’re reading this…you have the time!)
To change up my runs I have been listening to audiobooks. I stumbled on Rob Lowe’s self-narrated book. There are some parts which are sidesplittingly funny and make me forget I’m running in 20 degree weather. On a totally bonus note, I was tweeting about how much I liked it, and Mr. Sodapop Curtis himself “liked” (clicked the heart) my tweet. So, there’s my brush with fame.
I’m adding to my portrait365.com website again. It won’t be every day but I will definitely be keeping fresh content on there weekly if you want to check it out or want to pose for me! (Pretty please!)
And finally, the following situations went down that I am officially giving a “no comment” on…
Until next time!
