Loving Lately… Faves and Raves

It’s been a good week… lots of exercise  and much better food choices since my awakening…. you can read about that in my last post if you like… 

I got in a couple of shortish runs this week.  Was great to get the running shoes on and get out pounding the pavement after not having run for just over a month.  I took it slow and easy, but thoroughly enjoyed myself.  And now that I am using DRIP DROP powdered electrolytes before running and I am not having any leg cramping, AT ALL,  I have decided to become an ambassador for the product.
I am still taking the fermented L-Glutamine in the morning, and my Natural Calm magnesium powder before bed, and I think this medicinal grade electrolyte mix might just be the piece that was missing for me.  And it tastes good, too. 


I made up a new smoothie after our last run.  Here’s the recipe. It is so easy and just delicious!  We have been getting wonderful, flavorful peaches here this season and I can’t seem to get enough of the taste.  Next time I might use a whole peach in each smoothie, instead of just half.

Ginger Peach Smoothies

  • 2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 peach, peel and pit removed, cut into chunks
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger root
  1. Put almond milk, protein powder and peach into blender bottle and puree till smooth.
  2. Pour into 2 glasses and sprinkle 1/2 tsp grated ginger root over each.

I just found out that I am now a Sweat Pink Ambassador!  I am very excited to be part of this fun group and can’t wait to start giving out pink shoelaces and getting involved with their promotions and events.


I came across some really good blog posts this week:
  • Bedtime Yoga Poses at Reason to Play
    • I had never thought about doing this before but I do intend to try it.

  • Good Job, Chubby at The Tiffany Project
    • Such a feel good story that could have had a very sad ending.

Here are a couple of good looking recipes I found:

All in all an interesting and happy week.

What’s making you smile lately?
