What I’m Feelin’ Friday #9

Hey gang!¬† Sorry I went MIA last week, things just got crazy with work and other life obligations #laundry. But I am BACK! Let’s jump right to it. Here are some of the things that have made my life better this week. This week’s list proves that the saying, “it’s the little things” is so true! ūüôā

#1 Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls w/ Rubber Grip Bottom

These¬†Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls with Lids & Non-Skid Rubber Grip Bottoms Set of 3. By: Bl√ľmwares¬†(<–Affiliate¬†Link) makes meal prep so much more enjoyable. And this is coming from someone who views meal prep as a necessary evil. Why do I love these bowls so much? Easy.

  1. They aren’t plastic!!! I am a bit creeped out by the toxins in plastic containers. If I am taking the time to cook healthy food, why should I store that healthy food in an unhealthy container?
  2. The rubber grip on the bottom prevents bowls from easily sliding around on the countertop. READ: No spills.
  3. The tight sealing lids make it easy to store the bowl in the fridge.

I had been making western omelets for breakfasts and it’s nice to already have the sauteed bell peppers and onions in the bowl ready to go. I just grab the bowl out of the fridge, spoon the already sauteed bell peppers and onions into the pan and voila! Add ham, eggs, and cheese and you have an instant western omelet.

#2 My Intent Bracelet

I saw these My Intent bracelets on Instagram and loved the idea behind them. Having a powerful motto or slogan is essential not only in running, but in life. How great is it that we can just look at our wrist (or paw :P) and be reminded of something that is valuable to us?

My word for 2018 is purpose. I feel as though my purpose is to help people find their best self through fitness and wellness. It’s a topic I can talk about all day long, even when I am feeling extremely exhausted. So whenever I am feeling discouraged or tired, I just look at my wrist, see the word “purpose”, and it helps get my mind back in the game.

And yes, that is a picture of Tadd’s paw haha.¬† I just wanted to see if he would bother moving it.

#3 By The Book Podcast

By The Book

I have recommended several podcasts over the course of this blog and “By The Book” is the newest addition to my playlist. The hilarious hosts Kristen and Jolenta have to live by a self help book for 2 weeks and report their findings on the podcast.

They have tested several popular self help books such as, “Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus”, “The Miracle Morning”, and “French Women Don’t Get Fat”. I love that Kristen and Jolenta do the dirty work for me and save me from reading an incredible crappy book or encourage me to read one that’s actually helped.
