Like it, love it, want more of it – August

Posted on

I have decided to write a post each month about the things I like, the things I love and the things I definitely want more of. I figured being filled up just isn’t about eating, well that’s a large part of it, but I know it includes more aspects of your life than just food! I will share some of the things that are filling me up right now. Hope you enjoy some of my favorites from the month and maybe they will be some of yours, too!

Favorites of the Month

Favorite Body Product: Organix Teatree Mint Shampoo and Conditioner

I love the smell of this shampoo and conditioner because it is quite refreshing. Not only that, but I really like the way the conditioner leaves my hair feeling – not too greasy, but definitely gets the job done. Find the products here.

Favorite Household Item: Dr. Bonner’s Castile Soap

This soap can be used in a multitude of ways. I think they list almost 20 different ways on the bottle. Heck, you could even clean your dentures with this stuff, if you had them!

Favorite Workout Move: Spider Plank

This exercise is hard as shit, I mean you know what. You can really feel your core burning as you bring your knee up to your elbow all while in a plank position. Do this as one of your exercises in a high intensity workout and you will be set!

Favorite Meal Made this MonthFlax and Almond Pizza Crust

This was a fairly easy pizza crust made from almond meal and flax meal. It was a nice change from the regular ol’ pizza we eat at Joe’s parents’ place (shh! don’t tell) and awesome enough the recipe made 4 mini pizza crusts. This allowed for a few different types of pizzas to be made.

Favorite Smoothie Ingredient: PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter

I picked this up at the grocery store 2 weeks ago and it’s almost gone. This powdered peanut butter is off-the-hook, yup I said it and sound like I’m stuck in the 90s but that’s ok. Just as it says on the container, there is 85% less fat calories than regular peanut butter!

Favorite Pair of Shoes: JCrew Ballet Flats

Tell me these shoes aren’t adorable? Absolutely, but absolutely out of my price range right now. I guess I will have to keep dreaming for a while or saving my pennies. One or the other.

Favorite Idea: from Pinterest:

Use chalkboard paint and paint on the lids of mason jars. Label the jars and when you change what’s inside the jars, wipe, and write again!

Favorite Inspirational Quote: from Pinterest

I always think to myself, I will not eat so much sugar tomorrow, or I will run a bit farther tomorrow. Well, stop saying tomorrow and do it today! I have to remember to do what makes me feel good. Eating less sugar and running that extra mile, make me feel GOOD!

Favorite Picture: Picture I took of my nephew

Look at that little doll baby’s face…and his lips! Ah, I want to eat him up like a buttercup.

And I will leave you with that!

What are some of your favorite things going on in your life right now? 

What fills you up (yes, besides food!) ?
