Hi friends, happy Friday! I’m loading this post up with fun pictures from the last few weeks and some great reads for you guys as I continue to settle in. Hopefully next week, I’ll have pictures of the house to show. Thanks to the wonderful Kate for hosting this link up!
Top 3 High’s:
Running on the Block Island Trails. The scenery made my long run go by quickly! Can’t beat running by the ocean, which unfortunately, Charlotte just can’t match.
Spending lots of QT time with Lucy. I miss her so much in North Carolina!
Time with family and beautiful sunsets! Going home was rejuvenating in so many ways.
The stress and bruising that come with moving. Oh well, it’s done and over with now!
Also, unbelievably hot weather so I wasn’t able to follow my marathon training plan this week. I was probably due for time off anyway!
Along with the hot weather, our air has not been working. It’s been a brutal past few days. No internet yet, either. Living like a caveman!
S’mores campfire ice cream! I could eat this all day every day.
Lunch at Ikea while furniture shopping! I’ve hit up their $3.00 breakfast buffet, but this was my first lunch experience. I was seriously impressed with their healthy offerings! I got a large piece of salmon over a kale salad for $6.00. You go, Ikea.
Turkey burger and sweet potato fries. Can’t ever turn these bad boys down.
Honorable mention, Tropical Pineapple Dasani Sparkling Water.
For the Record (about objectifying women) by Jennifer Aniston <–AMEN to this!
A guide to probiotics via Happy Healthy Mamma<– great stuff in here to share with clients.
The Dangerous Lies Your Trainer is Telling You <– Registered Dietitians earn degrees for a reason. Just make sure you know the credentials of who you get your advice from!
Milk Can Help you Stay Hydrated <–Because milk has electrolytes and other nutrients, the stomach will empty more slowly, meaning less trips to the bathroom. I need to remember this for my next road trip!
70 Recipes Using Canned Tuna <– Love tuna, and it’s such a cheap way to get those omega 3’s!
The Most Iconic Restaurant in Every State <– If this doesn’t belong on my bucket list, I don’t know what does! (I’ve been to the ones in Lousiana, Seattle, WA, and Rhode Island, obviously). Funny enough, I didn’t eat at the one in Portland. I remember walking in and changing my mind and going somewhere else – if only I had known!)
I plan on making this breakfast pizza on Saturday after my long run!
What are you making this weekend? Any fun plans?
