The Holiday Rush and Some Great Deals

I love this time of year... there is so much excitement in the air with the holiday season upon us and so much to see and do.  Too much really.

I am excited about some special things right now... let me fill you in...

I am taking part in a new 'diet' program with Chalene Johnson.  It is called one3one diet and is a 12 week program of structured experimenting with different eating protocols to find out what works best for people on an individual basis.  This first phase is using ketosis and intermittent fasting to prepare for a longer fast... so far loving all the information and community support.  I am learning so much about inflammation and gut health.

We have had an unexpected little trip fall into our laps!  I won a magazine contest for a 2-day trip to New York City including flights, lovely hotel, and concert tickets to see The Tenors.. also a meet and greet opportunity... which I may or may not take... I am a bit shy so we shall see.  Anyway, because of where I live it is going to involve ALL DAY travel to get there but I think it will be fun. I have never been to New York... never even thought about going and The Captain is pretty stoked too. I know it will be whirlwind so we are going to choose a couple of MUST see landmarks and see as much as we can.

So... some affiliations coming up...

I was chosen to be a nuun ambassador for 2018... so happy for the opportunity to share great discounts and product news with you here.  I do love nuun and use it every day.


Have you checked the Knuckle Lights web site lately?    They have some fabulous promotions going on right now.





FREE battery charger set value $9.99 with every order 
(1 Charger Set for EACH set of Knuckle Lights COLORS)

And they are offering FREE shipping in the U.S.

My friends at Nuzest are also offering a terrific holiday deal...

And if you like, use code eatrunsail at checkout for a 15% discount on your purchase. 


What are you most excited about this holiday season?

Let's Take Time Out For Coffee

I am really enjoying coffee dates on these blustery cool and often wet Fall days we are having lately....especially when I can get in some storm watching on the beach at the same time. I have been experimenting...  and am loving these Holiday Spice Flat Whites... so I got one for each of us... let's enjoy some chatting and catch up, okay?



What is new on the fitness front?  Well, I am about to start week 8 of this new Metabolic Renewal program that I purchased from Jade Teta when it was released.  I do like to work out with a video.  The workouts are only 18 minutes each and you do them 3 times per week, followed up by a walk.  I love the idea of getting a full body workout in such a short and intense burst.  This new program also comes with some advice about nutrition based on where you are in your hormonal stage of life and has been very enlightening.  I like it.  

I have been walking as much as possible and running still only on Sunday mornings.  I don't mind walking in the rain, but running... nope.


I think I told you that since I have had all these new crowns on my teeth, I am not supposed to eat almonds anymore... so I am slowly working my way through my stash by roasting them and making home made almond butter.... oh my... it is especially delicious when still warm from the oven and food processor!  Have you made your own nut butter?  It really is so easy.  Check out this little blog post if you are interested.



I have decided to try some new supplements.  I have been doing a lot of reading and research and have gone ahead and ordered some collagen protein, and some maca powder.  And even though I have been using spirulina algae ENERGYbits for a few years now, I have also decided to try using RECOVERYbits this Winter... they are chlorella algae and purported to help with immunity and also removing toxins from the body.  I have decided to take them on evenings I have wine because that does affect my sleep somewhat... we shall see if they help. 

Just in case you are interested there is a terrific CYBER MONDAY deal from ENERGYbits... using the coupon code THANKS you can get 20% off the purchase price and FREE shipping on up to 10 bags of bits to anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. This is an awesome deal as they have never offered free shipping before... it is valid through November 27th.... yes, I am an ambassador but will not benefit from your purchase.  Check it out on their website.  



Did you do any Black Friday or Cyber Monday shopping?

This past week we celebrated our 30th anniversary... not wedding anniversary, but the day we met. We have always celebrated this occasion and I really find it hard to believe it has been this long... but when I look back at all the adventures we have had together, and all the places we have been, I guess it really must be 30 years!

Oh one, more thing I really want to share.... the Nuzest giveaway for November is open till the 30th.  Have you entered yet?  If not do it here...  looks like a really good one and there will be 5 winners.  They have some awesome new products so make sure to check it out and get in on the draw.





So, what about you?  What is new and what do you have on the horizon for the next few weeks?

Let's get together again soon, okay?

September Update

Well, it has been 2 weeks since my public declaration of goals for September so I though I would post an update on how things are coming along and where I am with those goals and how I plan to finish out the month.

Exercise
  • I am happy to have been continuing with my Sunday-only runs - yes, they are short, and yes, it is only one day a week, but I am not in training for anything right now so this works for me. I have so many other activities I have no interest in spending more of that time on running and missing out on my other favorites. Honestly, running is time-intensive and there is only so much of that.
  • I am still playing tennis twice a week. The warm weather is holding and even though we have had some rain, the courts are dry on the days I want to play. As long as the weather holds, I intend to keep playing. I love it so much!
  • I have been working out with Metabolic Prime on Monday and Wednesday mornings, followed immediately by a 20 minute walk.  These workouts are killer and after the first couple I had DOMS so severely I could barely lift my arms to play tennis the next day... but that has passed and I am loving being back in the fitness room pumping weights and doing pushups!  Really... who IS this woman?
  • I have been using Friday as an alternative activity day.  It is working well for me to have one day designated to spending the day doing some kind of exercise that is all about enjoyment and having fun. The first Friday we spend the day at a PGA event and it was so fun to see PGA legends and stars that we have been fans of for so many years... you may have seen my IG post about John Daly.... and the second Friday we spent the day walking... to a far-away local mall for lunch and a bit of a shopping outing.  Was good to spread all those thousands of steps over the whole day!
Eats
  • I tried kombucha for the first time this week and have been drinking 1/4 cup of the fizzy elixir when I first get up in the morning. So far I have not noticed any effects from it so I think I will do this for a few more days and then increase to 1/2 cup.  I keep reading about how fermented foods are good for us so going to give it an honest try.  This particular brew is locally made and I quite like the taste.


  • I finally bought myself a donut pan and made my first high protein, gluten free donuts from a recipe that Kaila showed me on her own blog.  Chunky Monkey Donuts!  I know she has more so will be checking them out... lemon perhaps?


  • I am enjoying the new format that Weight Watchers is taking with their meetings and on Saturday mornings we have lively and worthwhile discussions about mindset, and changing our 'stories'.  As for myself, I am working on shifting that ALL OR NOTHING attitude.  

Extras
  • I was planning to color my hair, and do mani/pedi but have not done any of this yet. I cut my finger quite badly with a kitchen knife and want that to heal completely before I start messing with chemicals, even with gloved hands.  But I do want to get to it this or next week.
  • I have just purchased a women's only program from the same doctor/trainer that produced Metabolic Aftershock, Metabolic Prime, and the Metabolic Effect programs... It has similar workouts but the added benefit of a nutrional component that is customizable to whatever stage of life you are in, so that it works with your hormones. I will start the workouts along with one of the workout models who has set up a FB group, in a couple more weeks, but I have already started the nutrition protocol and so far so good.

So tell me, how is September shaping up for you?  Anything on your radar that you still need to get to?
