These posts are so fun to write. I basically just go through my phone’s photo album for a little trip down memory lane and pull out all my favorites.
Cooking Oil Sprays from Chosen Foods
Chosen Foods sent me a gift package and I’m obsessed with these cooking oil sprays! There’s no propellant or other chemicals–just the oil packed under high pressure. Love ’em!
BetterFit Hand Grips
I got these in the spring Mantra Box from my friend Candace and find myself absentmindedly using them like a stress ball during long days sitting at my computer. Also I’m obsessed with boxing right now so I’ll take any improvements in grip strength I can get. 🙂
Tejido Sweater Poncho
Charity Ride at Recycle
A bunch of my friends came out to support my marathon fundraiser with a class at Recycle‘s South End studio. It was my first time having Anni as an instructor and she was uh-mazing. After the class, we hung at the studio and sipped on pineapple mimosas made with fresh Ripe Stuff. Perfect Saturday afternoon!
15-Minute Lateral Low Body Workout
I just I just posted this to the blog a hot minute ago, but I already look forward to doing it again. My butt was fuh-eeeeeling it the next day.
Chia Seed Pudding
I’ve been on a chia seed pudding kick! So healthy, so filling, so many flavor options. In addition to the recipe I posted on the blog at the start of the month (Almond Butter Banana Chia Seed Pudding), I’ve got another one coming for you in the next couple weeks (hint: blueberries and mint). I’ve also been loving the chia seed pudding at Cocobeet in Boston–so yummy when I’m walking home from teaching at Btone’s North End studio!
I’m slightly anemic and don’t really like meat so I’m always conscious of consuming plant foods high in iron. I was listening to a podcast that mentioned pepitas (pumpkin seeds) are loaded with iron so I’ve been buying them dry-roasted for snacking (so good) and raw for sprinkling on salads and smoothie bowls.
Bullet Brew Turmeric Coffee
Turmeric in coffee? I was so intrigued by this bullet brew when I saw it at Whole Foods that I ignored the price tag–and am glad I did! It’s delicious. Not something I’d buy every day (it’s like $6-7 a bottle), but a wonderful treat.
Weekend in NJ-NYC
Early in the month, I had the best weekend down in the tri-state area. Joe was off at a bachelor party, so I went down to see his mom, nephews and niece on my own. I spent Friday and Saturday with my favorite little munchkins (squirt gun fight, trampoline time, ABC twister games and teaching the next generation how to dominate at Candy Crush Saga) and then Saturday night drove into Manhattan to see a few of my college friends. UNC was in the final four (a fact they had to tell me haha) so we went out for drinks and to watch the game.
I know, I know, I’ll STFU about the marathon already. But I had to include it in my favorites! 😉
Call me basic, but Beyonce dropping Lemonade made my week. The album (musical and visual) is amazing! So many emotions watching the video (not to mention it’s beautifully filmed) and the songs have been on repeat for me all week. And, ok, I admit it, I dutifully put in a couple hours researching tabloid theories on the identity of Becky with the good hair. 😉
Favorite Posts from the Archives
Playing Candy Crush with my nephew earlier this month reminded me about that ridiculous post I did about CC a couple years ago when I was OBSESSED with the game. I even dressed as it for Halloween. LOLLOLLOL.
What made your highlight reel in April?
Also any discussions/theories/gossip intel on Lemonade are welcomed and highly encouraged in the comments section …
