You made it through the week! I hope you are looking forward to a nice, relaxing weekend. J and I are getting ready to take a little road trip to Colorado for Spring Break and I could not be more thrilled to spend some time with my family before our big move. It’s a 12 hour drive, so you can bet our car will be loaded with lots of healthy snacks!
I have to admit that I am so excited to be writing my very first Friday Favorites post! I love reading all of the Friday morning posts from other bloggers, so without further adieu, here are some things I have been loving lately.
1.Killer Crossfit Workouts-
I have been incorporating more functional training into my lifting days and have been taking inspiration from Crossfit lately. I look at their WOD (workout of the day) and modify it so that I can complete it at my local gym. Their latest Crossfit Open WOD 16.1 was brutal, but it was over in 20 minutes…totally doable!
Along with iced coffee, this has been my go-to drink lately. Kombucha can be pretty strong flavored, but this particular brand ins’t too overpowering and is a great little afternoon pick-me-up. You can find it at most health food stores. My flavor of choice- Black Current. Total YUM!
3.Rosehip Seed Oil-
I have been using rosehip seed oil for the last 2 weeks and am in love!! My skin gets extremely dry during the wintertime . . . so I was slathering Aquaphor on my face each night. I wasn’t convinced this was the best skin care choice, Ha. I read about the benefits of Rosehip Seed Oil over on Julie’s blog and had to give it a shot. I now use it morning and night. It leaves my skin soft and smooth without being too greasy. I think I might try it as a hair mask this week (I’ll let you know how that goes!)
4. Adventure Planning-
J and I have been planning a few adventures for when we get out to California. We love anything outdoors-y and can’t wait to spend our weekends camping and beach bumming. The craziest idea I’ve seen so far is Tree Camping. Don’t forget your s’mores!
5.This recipe for Vegan Blueberry Banana Streusel Muffins. Blueberry muffins are heaven and the RD that runs this blog is just so fun. Go spend some time over on Hummusapien. I promise you won’t regret it!
6.These fish tacos! Can it get any better than Jamaican Jerk Fish Tacos? Save this recipe for next Taco Tuesday.
7.I love reading all of the articles on INC., but this article on the 3 Habits of Remarkable Focused People is a must-read. It mentions that we lose focus and productivity when we run around at a frantic pace all day and that taking a few minutes to stop and regroup can be incredibly helpful. This advice came at a perfect time in my life.
8.I think y’all know my love of Fixer Upper, so this article should come as no surprise. Let’s all design our very own Fixer Upper inspired farmhouse bathrooms. Sounds fun, right?!
Have a wonderful Friday!
