Hey guys, how’s your week going? Today’s post is a little bit of everything, and a whole lot of nothing at the same time. Sometimes I have lots to say about one thing, and other times I have a little to say about lots of things. Today is the latter so let’s get started shall we?
Things I’m loving:
Organic Activated Walnuts from loving earth
I actually bought these by accident the other day when I was at the health food store. I just wanted a small snack before yoga started so quickly grabbed these off the shelf without paying too much attention. Best. mistake. ever! They are super crunchy and delicious, and the activation process also makes them easy to digest. Win!
So Delicious Coconut Milk
This is a great alternative for those who can’t have dairy, soy, and need to avoid nuts as well. I use it to my hot chocolate at night and it adds a lovely creaminess. I like the unsweetened variety, but original and vanilla varieties are also available. Look out for it at your local health food store.
Being mad busy at uni means I have little brain power left at the end of the day to think up an exercise routine. Enter Crossfit. I’ve been doing the workout of the day from the website, making modifications where necessary. I’m totally loving the variety, and the workouts are short and sweet. Today’s workout:
- 500m row, 30 pushups
- 1000m row, 20 pushups
- 2000m row, 10 pushups
- Followed up with some weight training: DB bicep curls, DB chest press (on stability ball), and BB biceps curls (21s); 3 sets of 8 – 12 reps for each exercise
The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss
If you want to become more effective, cut out some of the crap in your life, and start living your dreams then read this book. I think this book made me realise what’s important in life (e.g. doing things, not having things), and how to focus my energy towards reaching my goals. The book is written in a very colloquial manner, with resources, tips, and challenges throughout to help you embrace independence and ultimately ‘Live anywhere, do anything’.
Recipes I’m keen to try:
If you are anything like me, you probably spend way too long perusing websites, blogs, and magazines looking for interesting recipes you want to try. Here are a few I’ve bookmarked to make soon:
Coconut flour protein waffles by pure2raw for breakfast (or anytime really!)
This Balsamic Grilled Vegetable & Basil Quinoa salad for a lovely weekend lunch
And for dinner I’m thinking these Lemon-Ginger Roasted Chicken Thighs from Clean Eating Magazine
Well that’s all for now folks! I’m going to go rest my weary eyes now and get ready for Friday. Speaking of eyes, I’m having my vision tested tomorrow so I can get new glasses. I’m excited to choose new frames, but nervous to find out how blind I am.
Ok enough of my rambling! Now it’s your turn:
What’s one ‘thing’ your loving lately?
