Friday Five

Yay, it’s Friday!

This work week went by fast, and I’m grateful for that!  I have been busy with work and my training, all of the days just blend together… that happen to anyone else? It’s going to rain all weekend in Boston, which means I will be indoors riding on my trainer and running outside, if I’m lucky.

Here are five of my favorite things this Friday!

Tessemae’s Dressings

I have been using Tessemae’s dressings for over a year now, and I will NEVER go back to ‘regular store bought dressings’ ever again. You will not find a tastier, healthier dressing out there. All of their dressings are made with REAL ingredients that you can pronounce and are good for you! Their motto is: Around here, we keep it real! My favorite flavors are Lemon Garlic, Zesty Ranch and Black Pepper. I love to add the dressings to steamed and roasted veggies, salads, chicken wings, you name it. Most recently, I have been roasting asparagus with the Cracked Pepper dressing… delicious!

Beauty Protector Detangler Spray

I got a sample of Beauty Protector in my Birchbox and couldn’t get enough. I have since ordered the full size bottle, and my hair has never felt softer. I swim in a pool 3 days a week, which used to wreak havoc on my hair, but no longer! This paraben- and sulfate-free detangler seals the cuticles and smooths and moisturizes, thereby minimizing frizz. I highly recommend this stuff for anyone who swims or wants to give their hair new life.

Trigger Point Therapy Kit

My chiropractor recommended this kit to me for my tight calves, and it has helped me tremendously. The knots in my calves definitely contribute to my Plantar Fasciitis. I find that when I roll my calf on the Trigger point ball, it makes a big difference. I have been using the kit every night, just to losen things up. It makes a difference in my lower legs when I wake up in the morning. It is very painful, but that’s how I know it’s doing the job!

Hoo Ha Ride Glide

I won’t get in to much detail here, ha, but this stuff is a lifesaver! If you are a female and you ride a bike, you need this stuff. When riding for several hours on the bike, this makes things A LOT more comfortable. In addition to having healing agents, the Hoo Ha chafing cream is enriched w/ barley extract, lavender, eucalyptus leaf, tea tree and peppermint oil. The ingredients provide a lasting cool feeling so you enjoy your ride, run or spin class!

Speedo Color Block Silicone Swim Cap

I love this new swim cap design from Speedo! Anything to get me in the water at 5:00 AM, right?

 Have a lovely weekend!

    Loving the look of these products! I’ve yet to come across healthy dressing in the supermarkets here *sob*. I wish we had that brand in the UK! :p

    Louise, I hope you get these dressings in the UK! They are so good and have NO added sugar! No junk ingredients at all!

    I’ve seen that Trigger Point kit before. Good to know it helps with calves. I also have PF and can never get my calves well on a foam roller. I can get them pretty well with The Stick, but it stills isn’t getting in there are much as I would like. Thanks for sharing!

      Isn’t PF the worst? You should try the Trigger Point kit! I find it’s really made a different for me. It’s easy to find all of the knots and work on them.

    Any dressing that has a wax sealed top would have to be top of the line. I must get my hands on this – where do you buy it? You are the third person in the past week to mention Hoo Ha as a necessity for cycling. I’m sold.

      Any local Whole Foods should sell it! Also, you can order online at http://www.tessemaes.com/ ! Their blog also has great recipes! Oh and the Hoo Had cream will change your life!
