Friday Favorites: My Favorite Frozen Foods


When I go grocery shopping I typically try to avoid the frozen section…mostly because I have 0 self control and if ice cream or frozen pizza is on sale there’s a pretty good chance it’s ending up in my cart.

BUT there are some a frozen products that I love and that are actually pretty darn healthy.

So for this edition of “Friday Favorites” I wanted to share some of my favorite freezer finds and would love to know from you all what frozen products you’ve been loving.

I’m currently writing this post DROOLING watching the Top Chef finale on Bravo.

How on earth do these people think of such incredible dishes? I can hardly think about what I want to eat for dinner.

Anyway…it’s been awhile since I’ve done a Friday Favorites post and this one is going to be a little bit random but whatever. I promise for the next round I’m going to have some really good stuff to tell you all about. I’m already obsessing over Trader Joe’s new red lentil pasta and everything bagel seasoning- SO GOOD! 

Enjoy and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

My Favorite Podcasts


If you haven’t started listening to Podcasts it’s time to get on board!

I became completely obsessed with Podcasts when I was training for the Triple Crown and my marathon last year.

I was running so much that my running playlist got old reallllly quickly and I was not about to run for 2+ hours at a time in silence…NO THANKS! Enter: Podcasts! There’s something magical about finding a podcast you love…time goes by faster and dare I say it activities that you normally dread like working out or your morning commute all of a sudden become a lot more enjoyable.

Hey Hey Hey!

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week…uhhhh where did the time go?

Last year I made a ton of fun Thanksgiving recipes for the blog and I’m sorry guys but the holidays kind of snuck up on me this year…ooops! Don’t worry though I do have one fun Thanksgiving appetizer to share next week that is so delicious and literally takes 2 minutes to throw together. 

Stay tuned!

Today I figured it had been awhile since I’d done a Friday Favorites post and I have discovered some pretty amazing products over the past month. These aren’t just products I’ve had once and liked…these are products that since I’ve tried them they have become weekly necessitates when going to the grocery store…sorry wallet.

Friday Favorites


September has been a crazy month for me. It started with celebrating my dad’s birthday at the Ballast Point beer festival, then my friends at I went to the KAA BOO music festival in Del Mar, then I went out to the Colorado River with my family and tomorrow I have one last event…CRSSD music festival downtown San Diego. 

I’m exhausted just typing all that.

With all that going on I have not had much time for blogging and you know what it’s felt great to kind of disconnect, relax and really enjoy myself. BUT after this weekend it’s back to creating content and bringing you all value in every single post.

Happy Friday everyone!

I apologize for my lack of blogging the past couple weeks. Life got kind of crazy celebrating my birthday then running my half marathon last weekend.

So since I haven’t had the time to create any new recipes or anything I figured what better time than now to do a little Friday Favorites post.

For the record, this post is not sponsored..these are just products that I am currently obsessed with/ couldn’t live without/ all happen to be food related…shocker.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I know I’m really looking forward to doing yoga downtown San Diego Saturday morning at the Hard Rock Hotel then RELAXING and working on some new blog content for you all!

Hello and happy happy Friday!

I haven’t done one of these “Friday Favorites” posts in awhile so figured it was time.

As usual most of the things I’m currently obsessing over are food and running related but hey that’s kind of my life right now.

I apologize in advance for the picture quality in this post. I was just snapping pictures of everything as I was using/ eating it this week.

Anyway, let’s get right into 6 things I’ve been LOVING lately!

10 Ways To Reward Yourself Without Food + My Favorite Fitness Finds (ALL ON SALE)!

favorite fitness finds

A couple weeks ago I did a post on 5 Running Mistakes To Avoid. One of those huge mistakes is eating terribly then expecting to go run without any issues.

Uhhh not exactly going to work.

As much as I think I deserve a bacon cheeseburger, fries and a giant beer after an awesome workout I’m realizing that there are other ways to reward yourself that are not food related.

Fellow runner and blogger Kellen at A Cup of Kellen suggested treating yourself to a mani/pedi and another friend suggested putting away a little bit of money after every awesome workout to put towards a trip.

Here are 10 ways to reward yourself after a great workout without food:

  • manicure or pedicure (runners we could always use a pedi)
  • new workout clothes
  • putting money away for a trip
  • getting a massage or go to the spa
  • new shoes
  • buy a new healthy cookbook or really any book
  • give yourself permission to take a bubble bath and a nap
  • put some money towards a fitness tracker like a Fitbit or running watch like a Garmin
  • invest in some new kitchen gear (I’ve been dying for a new blender and at my 20 mile milestone may splurge)
  • take a fun class (cooking, painting, pottery…etc)

Hello, hello, hello and Happy Friday!

I’m writing this really quickly before heading out for a 15 mile run and then driving to VEGAS!

My whole plan is to run, pass out while Bryce drives and then magically wake up in Vegas rested and ready to go.



I haven’t done a Friday Favorites post in awhile so I wanted to share some of the things I’m LOVING right now!

We made it to Friday YAY! Is it just me or was that the longest 4 day work week ever? Maybe it’s just me and that’s why I’m extra excited to present my first “Friday Favorites” post- something new that I’ll be doing monthly.

I’m so guilty of visiting 985945 different blogs a day, Pinning their amazing recipes then never actually following through on making anything…oops!

So this week I decided to change that! I know fellow bloggers put so much hard work and effort into creating delicious recipes to share with their readers and so I decided to actually follow through and try some out! Today I’m sharing 2 of my favorite recipes I made this week and my new favorite workout pants.
