Here are some things I’m loving lately! I’m looking forward to a busy weekend of training and getting on my bike (outdoors). Ironman training has officially taken over my weekends, and I’m OK with that:)
This article from IRONMAN.com: 10 Ways IRONMAN Prepares you for Parenthood
After my post last week: ‘All of my friends are having babies…’ I found the timing of this article to be very fitting. I have have read it a couple of times now, and it has given me reassurance for the future and potentially starting a family some day! I like # 6:
IRONMAN: Long runs, miles of swimming and hours on the bike. Every weekend.
Little man: Long nights, round-the-clock feedings and hours of crying. Every day for a year.
→ The leg up: You can persevere. Functioning while sore and sleep-deprived, and planning essential moments of recovery, is key to covering 140.6 miles as an athlete and 365 days as a new parent. “You understand that being tired is part of life now,”
I just LOVE these spring flowers. They are so pretty and I feel like they are every where I look! I cannot help but buy a few bouquets every week at Trader Joes. Bringing a bunch into the office makes being indoors a bit more tolerable.
OOFOS Flip Flops
I have not wanted to take these off since I purchased them at the Boston Marathon Expo. They were the first shoes I put on after the race, and they feel like my feet are walking on clouds! Perfect for those suffering from plantar fasciitis/heel pain, since they have a lot of arch and heel support! These sandals have seriously changed my life… highly recommend them.
Wholly Guacamole Minis
I love these little guacamole and avocado packets for the work week! They are very convenient and are super healthy with no preservatives. Just real food ingredients. I love eating the guacamole with baby carrots or putting the avocado on my burgers!
The Green Dream Smoothie at Whole Foods
I am not usually one to like green smoothies, but this one from the Whole Foods Smoothie Bar is delicious and I’m hooked! The ingredients are: coconut water, kale, spinach, banana and mango… I need to figure out how to recreate this at home!
Have a fantastic weekend!!
