Things I Am Loving Lately

Happy Friday! I guess I should be more excited about that, except that today is my Monday. I'll be starting my first of three shifts. I like working weekends though, less drama and no management. My husband has been out of town this week, so I am actually happy to have something to do. I get a bit mopey when he leaves. What can I say, I love the guy!

Anyways just wanted to share some of the things I am currently loving:

  • Coloring Books! Yep that's right I am trying to find ways to destress and I have come across this coloring book: Adult Coloring Book: Stress Relieving Patterns. I got it on and I am hooked. It completely brings me back to my elementary school days. I literally loose track of time.

  • Sephora: Since September is my birthday month, Sephora emailed me to tell me they had a gift for me. I hate to go shopping in stores, so I went online to order some hair product and claim my gift. The best part about Sephora is that they also give free samples! And who doesn't love free samples!

  • Pro Compression Socks: I love compression socks for so many reasons. They are great for training, recovery, and best of all they are great for my long 12 hour shifts at the hospital. There are also many health benefits with wearing them, but I'm hoping to write an entire post about it next week. Stay tuned...I'm even giving a lucky reader a free pair of compression socks! In the mean time I have a discount code for you guys: PRO15. This code will give you guys 40% off marathon socks and sleeves from their website.

  • Brussel Sprouts: I know most people find these repulsive, but not me. I have been on a brussel sprouts kick lately. There is this really cool restaurant in my city that has probably the most amazing brussel sprouts I have even had. They make them with bacon and cheese and they are so good!

  • Rain: Earlier this week, San Diego got some much needed rain! California is under a severe drought so seeing this rain was breathtaking. It really helped control the many wildfires in my beautiful state. Unfortunately I read that we are headed for another heat wave this weekend! 

  • Runner's Connect Podcast: I got asked to check out a running podcast this week: Runner's Connect, Run to the Top. I really enjoyed the podcast because obviously it is geared for runners, but there is a lot of great info. The guest speakers are great and the topics are stuff that I can completely relate to. The guest speaker for this week happened to be one of my favorite bloggers, Janae from Hungry Runner Girl so I had to check it out. Janae was the first blogger I ever read online. She has been one of my biggest role models and she continues to inspire me to keep running. I know many people love to workout listening to podcasts, so check it out: 

  • My Hair: I am still getting used to my haircut! I swear I look like two different people depending on how I do my hair. I have natural curly hair, but it has been fun straightening it. Even my husband told me he feels like he is cheating on me when my hair is straight! the best part is that even though I cut off 11 inches, my hair is still long enough to be placed in a small pony tail for running. It really is the little things.
