A Few of My (New) Favorite Things!
You know those days where you just feel blah? That’s what I had yesterday.
I tried to start planning my week but had zero motivation. In the end I took a nap around 4pm and slept for an hour. After that I felt better but then the day was over! 😱 😂
Adam and I have been suffering from allergies really badly lately. I think the rest of the world is too because we went to Target to buy medication and they were all sold out of almost everything!
Even though I’m taking two allergy meds (Claritin and Nasacort) I’m still stuffed up and getting poor sleep which may be why I just felt lifeless this weekend. Also it was rainy (and muggy) out!
I did not go running. This is problematic because, based on the schedule I’m following for the Heroes in Recovery 6K I really needed to do a time trial this weekend.
I need to do this anyway because I haven’t tried pushing myself in a 5K since my last PR and I need to know how bad it’s gotten! I’m going to push the time trial to tomorrow and get it done. Better late than never!
I did get in a little Jasyoga with my boy on the cutest yoga mat ever from Dat Mat.
The Dat Mat team sent this to me about a week ago to try out and I’m in love. I get pitched a lot of junk to review, but this is a brand that I can get behind! I mean it’s a yoga mat with chubby cats on it!!!!
I’ll have a full review up after I’ve had a chance to use the mat a few more times. So far, so good :).
Also new to me are Picky Bars. I know these bars have been popular with runners for a few years but I’ve avoided them.
There are some trends I follow and some trends that annoy me. How my mind decides which way to go I’ll never know, but Picky Bars have been on my avoid list since the beginning.
However, there was a Chai and Catch Me Picky Bar in my StrideBox this month so I gave in and gave it a try. OMG. So good.
I immediately went on Amazon and ordered a variety box so I could try all the flavors. Now they are my go-to snack… and they are PERFECT for eating before a run so now that solves my issue of what to eat during my commute after work.
This sounds like a commercial for Picky Bars but it isn’t, I just genuinely really love them now! For anyone interested they are free from gluten, dairy, soy and GMOs; also some of them are vegan.
Anyway, enough product endorsements… if you’re interested in vlogs I posted one yesterday that I filmed on Saturday!
I hope you have a great Monday. Talk again soon!
What’s your favorite bar flavor?
Are your pets (or kids) all up in your business when you get down on the floor to do yoga?! 😀
I receive StrideBox every month for free and I also received the Dat Mat for free. I am under no obligation to post about StrideBox, the products inside it or about Dat Mat. I’m doing it just because I want to!
