Friday Favorites – 8.22

Guess what day it is?? IT’S FRIDAY!! Who’s as excited as I am? This was has been a long one and I’m looking forward to the weekend.

Now, on to the regularly scheduled programming…my Friday Favorites!

New Sparkly Soul headband

I bought this baby at Barry’s Bootcamp (another fave) after class one day because my hair was unruly and I didn’t want to go back to work looking like a hot mess. Yes, this picture is me at work, trying not to look like a hot mess. Turns out, its amazing. The thing stays put, fits well, doesn’t hurt and looks super cute. I checked out their website and found a few other’s I think I need. Hint hint SL – my birthday is right around the corner!

Barry’s Bootcamp

Yes, this made the list again. So now I’ve been three times and am considering picking up a second job so I can justify paying $28 a class to continue going. Barry’s doesn’t exactly fit into my tight budget but I’m addicted (in a healthy way). So far I have sweated my way through the Butt & Legs (Tuesday), Hard CORE Abs (Thursday), and Chest, Back & Abs (Wednesday) classes. Still on the agenda – Arms & Abs (Monday) and Full Body (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). Each class has left me sore in the best possible way! Love it!

Cookies & Cream Quest Bar

After the Great Adventure Challenge (Check out my recaps here: Kayak, Bike, Run) I needed to replenish myself and luckily I had this bar on hand. I am not sure if it was because I was so exhausted and starving or what but this was easily the most delicious protein bar I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to try some of the other flavors.

Nuun

I tried Nuun for the first time the night before the GAC. What’s the golden rule – never try anything new on race day? Well, technically I didnt, I tried it the night before and I loved it. Nuun was a total impulse buy but I’m so happy I did. I went with the Strawberry Lemonade from the Active collection and Cherry Limeade from the Energy collection (with caffein and B vitamin…yes please!) and really enjoyed both of them.

At Home Weekend

One of my favorite parts of summer (and life in general) is spending time with my family up in Maine. I was lucky enough this summer to spend 3 weekends up there in between wedding obligation weekends. This weekend SL and I are staying home (due to wedding obligations at home) and I am looking forward to having a non-travel weekend. I have mountains of laundry to do, the house need a good cleaning, I will have time on Sunday to actually prep for the week.

Time to get my work on so I can sail into the weekend without any obligations!

Friday Favorites – 8.15

After a super busy week that legit FLEW by its Friday again! I am so ready for this weekend to start because tomorrow is the Great Adventure Challenge aka my favorite race of the year! I have to goals for this race and am just looking forward to spending time outside paddling, pedaling and hiking.

Now, onto another Friday Favorites!

The new Strong & Kind Bars

Strong & Kind Bars

These are awesome! I love sweets here and there but I definitely have more of a savory tooth when it comes to snacks. Actually I really have more of a crunchy tooth! Either way, these new bars satisfied my every need. So far I have only tried the Hickory Smoked and Honey Smoked BBQ flavors and both were awesome. I am dying to try the Roasted Jalapeño too!

Barry’s Bootcamp

My new fitness obsession. I have been twice this week and have fallen completely in love. I have been wanting to try these place for a while now, and wrote about it being on my workout class bucket list a few months ago but it took a couple of co-workers urging me to try it to finally go. I am so happy I did. Its awesome!

Starbuck’s Iced Green Tea

A former co-worker who became a very good friend introduced me to this years ago and I always forget about it until summer comes. Then, full on iced green tea obsession hits and I am drinking them a couple times a week.

That is all for this week. Post work I will be driving up to Maine with my kayak and mountain bike strapped to my car, enjoying a home cooked meal from mom and hitting the sheets early so I am all rested up for the big race!

Happy almost weekend friends!
