Loving Lately

Wow, some how its been over a year since my last ‘Loving Lately’ post so I think it’s time for another one.  

In no particular order, here’s what I’m loving lately: 

1. – Barre & Soul class: I can’t say enough good things about this class.  Toning the arms, butt, legs and core + yoga =  the perfect combination!  I also found an instructor who I love which makes the class even more enjoyable.

2. – Our espresso machine: Mike and I both have a caffeine addiction which includes adding espresso shots to our coffee (hellooo turbo drinks from Dunkins!)  I also have an obsession with Starbucks’ lattes so I figured it was worth the investment to get our own espresso machine.  And this thing is incredible!  I’ve been making the most delicious decaf almond milk latte’s but once I have the baby I’ll be back at it and chugging the caffeinated espresso again.  

3. – Suja drinks: I’m especially loving their new ‘Chocalot’ flavored protein drink.  Who doesn’t love a chocolate drink that also has 20g’s of protein? 

4. – Workouts on Pinterest: SO MANY AWESOME WORKOUTS.  I printed out my favorite workouts and will add them to a lil’ binder for our home gym.  This will make planning my circuit workouts a million times easier!

5. – Old Navy maternity clothes: I’ll do a separate post on maternity clothes but so far I’m loving Old Navy’s maternity line.  The work pants, jeans and maxi dresses are the best (and no I’m not wearing maxi dresses yet but I’m excited to wear them this summer :))

6. – 4 Ingredient Cookies: These are hands down my new favorite homemade ‘cookie’.  You guys have to make them.

7. – And lastly, I’m loving these pictures from Etsy.  I can’t wait to order a bunch of prints in different sizes and frame them for baby Doyle’s nursery.  Here are a few of my favorites:

What are you loving/craving/obsessing over lately?

Loving Lately

1) Running outside in January! 

Yesterday was 60 degrees in Boston so I packed my gym clothes and squeezed in a quick, hilly 3 miler during my lunch break.  Not only was it awesome being outside during the work day but I was able to do so while wearing shorts!  Yup, shorts in January.  And I was still hot and sweaty.

2) Goat cheese.  Ahh it’s so friggen good!  Last night I went out for a mani/pedi/happy hour date with my friend and we enjoyed the most delicious goat cheese, butternut squash, and candies walnut pizza.  It was dabomb.com.  I’ve also been adding goat cheese to my scrambled eggs, on top of salads, and to my pasta dinner’s. 

3) Audio books.  How have I gone 3 years commuting in my car without listening to audio books?!  I knew about them.  I even knew how amazing they can be.  But I was too lazy to actually pick one up.  Thankfully those days are over!!  Last week I stopped at the library and picked up this funny audio book and it’s made my commute a million times better!

4) Warm water with lemon.  OK, so this one I don’t actually loooooove but I like it and I’m trying to love it.  I always hear about how drinking warm water with lemon first thing in the morning is great for the digestive system and for the liver.  So for the past couple of weeks I’ve been drinking a cup while getting ready for work (and then I switch over to coffee) 

You should check out this article to find out the “Ten reasons why you should have warm lemon or lime water daily”.

 This list could go on and on but unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for you :D) I have to end my list with just 4 things so I can take off for work….
