Friday Favorites I

Hey guys!

It’s already Friday? Can you believe it? You have any plans this weekend?

You know, I’m always inspired with Julie’s Things I’m Loving Friday Posts, so I thought I’d do one. It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘faves’ post…so, here we go!

Friday Favorites

Green smoothies, chocolate peanut butter smoothies, vanilla smoothies, Vega smoothies…I love them all and I can’t get enough. I post a lot of quick smoothie recipes on my instagram, so follow me there @audreyruns.

I can’t get enough of this hat! I have been trying for months to find a new hat that fit my head perfectly. I walked in Dick’s and found this one. I need it in all colors.

I did Legs on Saturday and I was sore for a total of 72 hours. Hurt so, so bad. Thank God for foam rollers, but hey, I also would have loved a parking permit like this one down below.

  • Hiking in the middle of the week

My mom, sister, and myself went on a hike in the middle of the day for 3 hours in Oak Mountain (On Tuesday). Straight up to Peavine Falls and back (8 miles total). Talk about SORE forever. It was all uphill on the way up so we definitely got a good sweat in.

Definitely going to have to get more of this stuff. Also, these packets are so neat!

  • Magic Bullet!

Okay, I’m so excited. Look at what came in the mail yesterday! Holy cow

Really excited to use this. I’ve never, ever, ever, used a magic bullet. I’m pumped. I will be making lots of recipes. So, beware!

Not too sure what’s happening this weekend for me but at least I know there will be running, smoothies, and recipes involved. Have a happy and healthy weekend, friends!

Questions this Friday:

  • What’s your favorite running hat?
  • Do you go through smoothie phases?
  • Where’s your favorite place to hike? (Show me a picture?)
  • Would you like me to share my leg workout I’ve been doing?

Three Choices I Make To Be Healthy

Happy Weekend!

Ahhh.  Weekend. #cat #meme

I’m so glad the weekend is here and I’m ready to enjoy it…Here’s some tips I follow by to keep myself healthy over the weekend, because, well you know, we tend to let loose a little on the weekends (AKA eat crap and forget to plan to exercise).

Now these tips are my own personal tips I use for myself to stay healthy. I am in no way saying you should do what I do.

Listen to your body, be authentic, and make healthy choices that fit your lifestyle!

Healthy Choices

Plans for the weekend include:

  • Eat Healthy
  • Run a long run b/w 7-10 miles
  • Have a Leg Day
  • Watch Spiderman 2
  • Journal
  • Coaching Call with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
  • Study for school and finish up Module 11
  • Make Peanutbutter Chocolate Chip Blondies with the 2 ripe plantains I have
  • CLEAN

Have a Happy & Healthy Weekend and make sure to drink plenty of water in this heat!

Questions:

  • Do you eat your greens? What’s your favorite green vegetable?
  • Do you keep junk in your house?
  • Do you plan your workouts ahead of time like me?

Sunday Eats to Start a Marvelous Week

Gotta be truthful here, I had the laziest weekend. But, I had the busiest week.  And Friday was really crazy!!!

I had went into Wal-Mart to grab something before I headed onward to my destination, and when I got back in my car to leave the parking lot, my car WOULDN’T start! I was very thankful that my dad was about 10 minutes away and was able to come jump my car…but sadly, that didn’t fix the problem! After a few minutes, my dad said the starter needed to be replaced. So long story short, I didn’t have a car til Saturday afternoon and I was just aggravated! So, a lazy weekend was much needed. A lot of catching up on school and blogging was definitely on the agenda.

But, I managed to grab my eats from yesterday on camera!

I started out the morning with coffee, buckwheat pancakes, melted coconut oil, strawberries, and a slice of baked bacon.

Yum! Right?

After a lot of flash card making for a future test and just for my organizational habits…came dinner!

No, I didn’t eat lunch…we had an early dinner  because breakfast was pretty late.

We had grilled hamburgers with grilled onion, sliced tomato, muenster cheese, lettuce, on a fresh baked french bread bun (try saying that 5 times fast) and I sliced up some red potatoes and baked them in the oven for 30 minutes on 400 degrees.

Delicious eats!

I also sneaked in a little dark chocolate! Gotta have that! Smile

Anyway, thanks Katie for hosting once again and I hope all of you have A MARVELOUS MONDAY and a Marvelous Week!

P.S. Look out for tomorrow’s post for my favorite sandwich recipe!
