Loving Lately

I’m short on time but full of inspiration. You’re going to have to be patient with me over the next few weeks because so much of my attention is focused on work and opening our new location right now. Exciting but consuming. So here is a quick look at some things that I am loving lately.

The National Peanut Board for sending me a care package full of peanut-themed goodies. They thanked me for being such a good ambassador of peanuts. I do what I can. πŸ˜‰

On that note, my package included Peanut Butter & Co.’s Mighty Maple and it’s safe to say I’m obsessed.

Under Armour’s Fly-By Mesh Tank – it’s so lightweight and breathable and it kind of feels like I’m wearing nothing…in a good way. It’s nice not to have a tight workout tank clinging to my stomach (because some days you don’t want your tank to cling!). I really like the racerback and the cut provides for complete freedom of movement throughout the shoulders.

Cooking. Last night’s dinner…sweet chili glazed tofu with coconut ginger quinoa and green beans sauteed with baby portobellos and seasame seeds.

Baking. French lemon yogurt cake with lemon glaze.

And finally, these two songs:

I’ve been playing this one during standing series in my yoga classes.

I’ve been playing this one during seated work and savasana and so many of my students have asked for the name of the song. It’s beautiful!

What are you loving lately?Β

    Hi Jen,
    I wanted to say that my husband and I are obsessed with Peanut Butter Co. white chocolate peanute butter and the dark chocolate dreams. This is going to sound crazy, but we went through 4 jars of it last week. Although it is him and I and are 2 sons, and we use it for our green smoothies, protein shakes, pb&j sandwiches to and probably the most with just a spoon out of the jar. Yummy!!!!

    Love love your blog. Getting ready to do a warrior dash in huntersville, nc this sunday!! Pumped and excited!!!:!)

    I’m loving those songs too after your recommendation, I did some yoga upstairs at my house and listened. Love them. I’m also loving my new PB Crave flavors especially “Cookie Nookie” which is cookie dough flavored PB…sigh! (having a giveaway right now and just baked delicious cookie dough peanut butter chocolate chip cookie bars…oh yes) and I’ve been needing my glass of wine nightly the past few nights.

    I love the Mighty Maple! It has a nice subtle grittiness to it.

    Lately I’m loving nonfat Mistos with sugar free caramel. The perfect little pick me up. πŸ™‚

    I am loving working out for myself. I have not taught one group fitness class since the day before Easter. At first I thought I would miss teaching, but I don’t at all! It feels great to just show up to take a class. So, in short, I’m loving being a gym rat!
