Good gosh, welcome to August.
Hey, remember how everyone last year was freaking out about 2012 being that last year in the world? Is that still happening? Haven’t heard about that in a while. Not that I care. It was just weird to hear people yammer on about that for centuries.
I’m excited about this coming month, its still summer and hopefully exciting things will be happening over here.
Since yesterday was WIAW, I missed out on telling you all about my July favourites.
Self explanatory. This pudding is my life. Sub cottage cheese with greek yogurt though.
(Instagram is too fun – follow me!)
What is not to love about this butter? It is simple a whole lot of nice stuff. Creamy, delicious, and all the lovely benefits that come from coconut. I’m talking about improved hair, nails, skin, stress relief, digestion, and helps to prevent osteoporosis. Just to name a few positives.
Reuniting with Creamy Buckwheat Breakfast Bowls
Specifically, grinding up my buckwheat in my coffee grinder before hand (is it weird I have a coffee bean grinder, but no coffee maker?) and creating an oat bran consistency. Then cooking it up the same way I normally do with oat bran. Lovely.
Cut Out Dresses
These may not be fan favourite dress for everyone, but I personally am just loving the cut out style. Definitely not a work dress, but a going out dress. Subtle, yet fierce statement in clothing.
I just love funky nails. Keeps things sassy. I also like the word sassy now. My love affair with bright polish was re-sparked when an older lady commented saying my nails made her smile.
Since the Bachelorette has sadly ended. Well, I guess happily for Emily, not so much for my Monday night TV love, I’ve had to rely on Bachelor Pad to keep me entertained. Its a hot mess of a show. I can’t believe some of the things people do on this show. How on earth can they land a job after some of the stuff aired on TV? And did anyone else recognize the twins from Jersey Shore? Oh man.
Honouring My Body
This one is probably the most important favourite. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I really want to do is get my workout on. I love having the option to get my exercise over first thing and having the rest of the day to do as I please.
That being said, with some health issues I’m working on improving, fitness has had to take a back seat. And while I don’t exactly like that I’m moving less, I know its the best for my body right now.
Pilates, yoga, and a weight training has become more of my fitness routine right now. Fitness will always be there for me when I am better and I know that while I’m not doing such high intensity right now, as soon as I’m healthy I can get back on board with those crossfit and high intensity workouts that I crave!
