Lately

Lately I’ve been…

Enjoying…The Spring-like weather we are finally getting. After having a snowstorm Friday morning, I didn’t think it was ever going to happen. I enjoy not having to wear a hat or gloves on a run. I enjoy the feeling of warm sunshine on my face. I enjoy hearing birds singing. I even enjoy the smell of mud season!

In the bathroom a lotMiss A is rockin’ potty training! (What did you think I was going to say?) Hello Kitty undies and stickers are serious motivation for that girl. Her brother on the other hand, is quite content in his diapers still. Typical boy! :)

Lathering…with Intelligent Nutrients Harmonic Shampoo and Conditioner. This stuff does not have any sulfates, parabens, silicones, ethoxylates, PEG, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances. And the smell? Yummy mint that wakes you up instantly. It even gives you a little scalp tingling. The conditioner also works great as a shave gel and the shampoo can be used as body soap. It leaves you feeling cooled and refreshed after a super sweaty workout.

Compressing…And elevating a lot for recovery post run. My calves have been tighter especially since I’ve been working on my gait to get rid of heel striking. Plus, legs up a wall pose just feels good no matter if it’s after a run or a long day at work on my feet. Pro Compression Argyle for the win!

Educating…I recently learned about an app called Fooducate. It’s a great source for those who need help on how to make healthy food choices. Basically it’s a personal grocery advisor. Daily tips and tricks are given to help make you a better shopper of nutritious food. Topics like nutrition fact labels, hard to pronounce ingredient names, “health claims”, and other marketing tricks to watch out for at the supermarket. You can modify it to your needs – weight loss, heart healthy, non-GMO foods, Gluten-Free, etc. You can scan any bar coded item or search the lists to see what grade it gets. I’m excited to try it out with some of my more tech savy cardiac patients.

I was provided a free Intelligent Nutrients Shampoo and Conditioner. All opinions are my own. All other products have been purchased with my own money. I just love ’em and want to talk about it!

  1. I am so with you on spring! The peepers are back in the morning and evening, the birds are back, and my daffodils are blooming. It feels great!

    Love the argyle pattern on your socks–I need to spice my compression sock collection up a bit. And Fooducate sounds really cool…I will have to give it a go.

  2. We are supposed to hit the 70s on Thursday and Friday – I can’t wait!!
    I’m still trying to decide how I feel about the compression socks – I like them better after a long run but I don’t think I will ever be able to run in them for long.

  3. That pic of your daughter is adorable! Good luck with the potty training. My youngest was fully potty trained sometime last summer and I love having a diaper-free household. We are leaving for a week in Mexico soon and I was just talking to my husband about it last night — no bottles, no diapers, no need for high chairs in the restaurants, etc. Life is getting so much easier all of the sudden! And then I get sad that they are all growing up. Ha!

    I love compression socks after a long run or when traveling on a plane. I think I will rock my hot pink compression socks all the way to Mexico!

    1. I get giddy thinking about no diapers…it’s the last thing hanging over us. But then, like you, I’ll miss it all and be sad. Well, maybe I won’t miss cleaning bottles and changing poppy diapers too much. :)

    1. Pro Compression! Not sure they have the tan anymore but there is a pink argyle that I am lusting over. You’re in luck too – they’re 40% off right now!
