Hope everyone is having a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend. I just wanted to stop in with my monthly Favorite Things post! If you are a new Fitness & Feta reader, every month I do one post on five “things I’m loving lately.” My friend Ashley actually just started up a blog and adopted the same kind of idea into one of her posts last week! It’s fun. Fellow bloggers, ever consider doing a post like this?
Anyways, here you go!
Nike Pegasus Sneakers
Remember when I went to Marathon Sports and bought these sneakers a few weeks ago? Well, I decided to keep them even though they are a running shoe, because they were so comfortable. And I’ve been loving them! Having a sneaker with a wide toe box makes all the difference in the world. I am still planning on hunting for a cross trainer that has a similar fit as well. But for now, Nike Pegasus all the way. Plus they are pretty. And teal (my favorite color).
Lighting a candle before bed
Since my life has been so hectic for the past couple months, I’ve tried to make time to just BREATHE every single day. For just 5 minutes. With everything else I jam pack into my life, I figure that 5 minutes a day CAN be done. So lately I’ve lit a candle right before going to bed! And I just lay there, with no technology, and I try to clear my mind of the day. It’s been a great way to de-stress!
My latest favorite candle? New “Bali Sunrise” scent from Target.
Do you guys see the picture of my grandparents in the background?
I don’t know what sparked me to buy wheat germ at the grocery store a couple of weeks ago. I honestly had no clue what it was. It just sounded like something I should be buying. Yes, I’m lame. I’ve been sprinkling on top of my low-fat cottage cheese with either blueberries or strawberries in the morning instead of my usual go to cinnamon topping. I also used it to bake banana muffins on Friday!
Disclaimer: It say’s Mother’s Wheat Germ, but I am not a mom. Just in case there was any confusion.
When I looked up the health benefits of wheat germ online, this is what I found:
“The health benefits of wheat germ are enormous. It is a grain fortified with vitamin E, folate (folic acid), phosphorus, thiamine, zinc, magnesium and essential omega-3 fatty acids and fatty alcohols. It is an excellent source of fiber.” Source
Suave Wild Cherry Blossom Body Wash
I am not really one to get excited about different beauty products. I would say 99.9 percent of the time, price determines what I buy at the store over brand or any other factor. The other day, Suave body washes were on sale at Target. I picked out a new scent, Wild Cherry Blossom.
Yes, I know it’s Memorial Day Weekend which means the beginning of summer, but I can still be excited about my new slippers. My old ones were literally falling apart and had holes in them and I was honestly probably 6 months beyond needing new ones. So to Marshalls I went and bought these comfy things. I forgot what it’s like to have my feet feel nice and cozy in a squishy slipper!
My feet are ALWAYS cold, so I’ll probably be loving these right through the summer.
What are you guys loving this month!?
