Five on a Friday!

Happy Friday and happy Spring! Although, it doesn’t really feel like Spring in Boston quite yet…I worry that Boston will skip spring this year and we will go right into Summer.  This has happened in recent years… one day it’s 40 degrees, the next it’s 80.  I want it to warm up, but not before the Marathon!  I need good running weather on April 21st!

Here are 5 of my favorites this Friday:

Strength training with TRX


Since I had to give up Crossfit for now (sigh), due to my foot injury and Ironman training, my coach suggested TRX!  I have done TRX classes before, but I am now excited to have my own TRX system!  I look forward to lots of upper and lower body exercises… and I love how the TRX works your CORE!  I will be posting my favorite TRX workouts soon.


Old Navy Pixie Pants


Even the movie stars are wearing these inexpensive, fun & flattering pants!  I am all about wearing bright colors now that it’s spring.  The Old Navy Pixie pants are the perfect addition to any girl’s wardrobe.


Way Better Snacks

way better

I love these sprouted grain, non-GMO, crunchy chips!  Sprouting has been known to enhance the absorption of nutrients and aid in digestion. The Sweet Potato flavor tastes amazing with Guacamole or Hummus.


Hope Hummus


(Pairs very nicely with the chips above) Hope Hummus makes the highest quality organic, gluten-free, vegan, and kosher hummus available on the market. All organic ingredients, creative flavors and non GMO.  I really like the Spicy Avocado Flavor because it’s so different than your typical hummus.  How cute is the name Hope Hummus?

Just a subtle reminder about why I’m training for my Ironman.


* Has anyone else used TRX to supplement Triathlon training?  How did it work for you?

have a great weekend!!!

    You must try the TRX, it’s really challenging! Check out some youtube videos, it will give you an idea:) Yes I love the chips… so good for a little snack!

      So delicious Bryanna!! I think Hope Hummus just made it’s way ‘out east’ because this is the first I’ve seen it.
