Happy Friday! Hope you have had an awesome week. Or you can at least celebrate the good in your average week. 🙂 Or if you have had one of those “thank God it’s over and I never want to repeat it” kind of weeks….well, the good news is, it is over and you made it.
40 Whole Food Slow Cooker Recipes–You guys know I love my crockpot! And in case like me, in the cold months you just want to eat cozy noodles drowned in cheese, sour cream, and cream of chicken soup here are 40 whole food recipes to make in your slow cooker!
Copycat Panera Autumn Squash Soup–At our work Christmas dinner we had a roasted squash soup and Nate loved it so I’ve been meaning to make a squash soup at home and this looks perfect! I never have heavy cream on hand so I’ll probably sub in evaporated milk.
Blueberry Chia Parfait with Special K Snack Bar— This parfait is so absolutely delicious and it is dairy-free! Also, bonus Layla loves the chia seed pudding. Yay for babies eating healthy.
Ripped in 30 with Jillian Michaels dvd–So I ordered this about a week or so ago because it popped up on Amazon for $7.50 with free prime shipping. (Love my Amazon prime!! Also now it is $7.99, still a great price). I’ve done it three times already and my goal is to use it 3 days a week. It is intenses, not that I would expect anything less and I’m definitely feeling stronger and I woke up this morning feeling dare I say thinner? You know, like a skinny day instead of a fat day? Awesome. On my non-Jillian days I am running and doing yoga.
12 Types of Runners in Gifs–Yeah, this is perfection. I’d say I’m a sweating-buckets/loner. Maybe the two are connected, but I don’t want to say.
At Home Winter-val Training Workout–it’s always fun to mix things up and this is a great workout you can do at home!
Maroon 5’s Sugar Music Video–whether or not this is “real”–it is awesome!
New Girl Line Dancing–at the end of the latest New Girl episode, they line dance. It is definitely worth watching. Sadly I can’t find any clips!! What! So much fun!
The Divorce Surge Is Over, But the Myth Lives On–This was an intriguing article about how divorce rates are actually dropping in the US and why. It seems there are a lot of contributing factors, but it’s encouraging news for whatever reason!
Nate ordered me a new French Press and it finally arrived! Let’s just say I am definitely spoiled by a guy who supports my snobby coffee addiction.
I’m also loving this “baby tarp” for Layla right now. Our dining room has carpet and it is such a pain to keep up with while Layla is learning to eat. So the tarp is making me happy.
Also, I’m shopping for running shoes which I love doing! I’ve been looking at pairs online, but I know I’ll break down and go to Gazelle for a proper fitting. Their customer service is out of this world! I highly recommend getting fitted with them (if you’re local) or another specialty running store. The Saucony Triumph’s like Nate has would be awesome–but they are pricy! Eep! Running decisions!
