Five Things Friday #48
I’m glad that yesterday’s post resonated with so many of you. It’s an important message and one that I hope you continue to remember as you go throughout your day.
I can’t believe the week is over already. It seems like it just started! Maybe it’s because of all the bebopping around that I’ve been doing, but time seems to have gotten away from me yet again. This morning I am working out, writing, then teaching from 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm if anyone wants to come rock out with me!
This weekend I have two separate paddleboarding events to attend, Neil and I are going on a caper, and we have to fit in Jurassic World. It must be done. Before that kicks off, though, let’s check out this week’s Five Things Friday!
1. Basil the III
If you have been reading from the beginning, you know that I love basil and that every spring/summer I buy a new basil plant. It is my all time favorite herb and I love to smell it, cook with it, and use it in smoothies. My friend Carly even made me a pie with it for my birthday last year! I saw one at Trader Joe’s the other day for $4 and I knew it was time.
2. Smoked Ghost Chili Grinder from TJs
You guys. I may have finally met my spice match. I was bored the other night and decided to actually read through the Trader Joe’s flyer that comes in the mail. I saw that one of their new products was this grinder and I immediately set out to buy it (also the same trip as my beloved basil). I have been adding it to all sorts of things like the fried rice I made the other day, my eggs, more TJs Chinese food–you name it, I spice it. It’s no joke.
3. Home Workouts
I have been alternating between trekking up to Sweat to workout and designing my own to do in the building gym. Tuesday I wanted to get my workout out of the way, so I scribbled down a quick tabata workout and was sweaty and done in about 38 minutes. I’ve had to break out my Brooks Transcends again because when I do sprints on the treadmill, my shin splints come back. That’s a LOT of shoe.
4. Smoked Salmon
Yes I am still on a smoked salmon kick. I bought some at Costco last week and have been working my way through it. I had a completely random snack of 1/2 avocado and salmon yesterday and it was so delicious. I also realized I was eating an entire bowl of fat. Good fat of course, and man was it good.
I promise it tasted better than it looks.
5. VSX Sport Underwear from Victoria’s Secret
I have been on the search for seamless underwear to wear under my leggings and capris when I teach, so I enlisted the help of the internet and some FB groups and got a TON of recommendations. Many people suggested the VSX line from VS, so I stopped in on Wednesday since they are also having their semi-annual sale. So far they’re great!
That’s it for me folks; hope you guys have a great weekend!
