Fit Fav Friday: Fitness Magazine

There are very few magazines I read nowadays and only one that I subscribe too. Fitness Magazine is one that I’ve stuck with over the last few years. I look forward to getting it and usually read it cover to cover.

Newest issue!

Newest issue!

Sure, I don’t love everything in it. It can be a little too gimmicky on the lose-weight-quick type articles, but there’s a lot to like about it. Workout ideas, recipes, inspirational stories. I learn about new products, recent health studies, and fun beauty tips. I also like that it always features “I did it!” stories from regular women.

So if you haven’t picked up an issue, I suggest you do!

Fit Fav Friday: A Cozy Headband

Do you ever get a Christmas present that just hits the mark? That happened for me this year with a cozy this is J headband. My step mom got me it for me on a trip to NYC. I’ve never been a big hat wearer and I hate when the cold air blows past my ears on a winter day. This knitted headband solves both problems.

Warm ears are happy ears

It’s so warm and comfortable – and super cute, too! It’ll be great for winter walks. And it’s something I never would have thought to buy for myself. I think that’s part of the reason I like it so much. It’s reversible too!

Fit Fav Friday: A Sunny Winter Day

With all the “stuff” of Christmas a day behind us, I don’t want to talk to about a physical thing today. Of course I enjoyed Christmas. It was a wonderful day filled with family, love, kindness and generosity. It was also a day filled with food and drink and laughs. I’m a little sad it’s over and I had a mini panic attack when I turned on Hallmark channel and a Christmas movie wasn’t on.

But today I am extra appreciative that I woke up to the temperature approaching 40. I’m happy that I was able to go out for a long run without bundling on layers. I’m grateful that the ground was dry and there was no snow around.

What more could I ask for the day after a wonderful Christmas than a sunny, temperate winter day in Connecticut?

Fit Fav Friday: Food Scale

I love my food scale. However, I don’t think everyone appreciates the usefulness of one. The first time my dad saw it on my counter he asked me if I was selling drugs.

Even if you aren’t concerned about keeping accurate track of what you eat, a food scale is still a great kitchen tool. I once counted out an entire bag of chocolate chips in order to figure out how many were in an ounce, in order to measure 2 ounces for a recipe. Now I just weigh!

Fit Fav Friday: No-Calorie Beverages

I’m a big water fan, but sometimes water just doesn’t cut it. When that happens, I turn to no-calorie beverages. And I’m not talking about diet soda (I don’t even want to get into how terrible soda is for you… even if I do indulge myself every so often).

When water isn’t cutting it, I reach for a nice cold seltzer or a warm cup of tea. The cold carbonation of seltzer is so satisfying when I’m thirsty and sometimes even helps when I’m craving a sweet snack. My favorite flavors are raspberry lime and pink grapefruit. Continue reading
