Orange Theory Peak Week –
I survived Peak Performance Week where additional challenges were built into our normal Orange Theory classes each day. It was brutal and by the end of the week I was sore and exhausted. However, in the end I’m proud of what I accomplished for the challenges and I learned that I should probably be pushing myself even harder in class, which I did not think was possible.
500m row = 1:31
15 min times run = 1.921 miles
timed mile = 7:05
I also have new goals for next time:
500m row = 1:29
15 min times run = 2 miles
timed mile = sub 7
Mizuno Running Color Explosion –
Mizuno Running just released a ton of new colors and I am really excited about having more variety to choose from. Originally the Wave Rider 18, which I am in love with, where only offered in 3 colors, but now there are 7 options to select from.
Orange is the New Black –
I could not wait for the release of Orange is the New Black and gobbled up a whole season over the weekend. I must admit it was not as fabulous as the first two seasons, but it was obviously still good enough for me to binge watch the entire thing.
Coloring to Relax at Night –
My entire Loving Lately – May piece last month was all about how much I am enjoying coloring every night before bed to relax, and guess what? I still love it just as much. I have seen lots of other adult coloring books since then and I must say I think I have the best one. It has beautiful pictures on every page, but my favorite part is how each page is focused on a positive mantra. (Check out my Loving Lately – May post for more examples of pages from the book.

Wrenn Jewelry –
I wear the same pair of silver hoop earrings almost every day and was looking for some simple stud earrings that would pair well with all of my clothes, and would be small enough that I could wear them with some of my big statement necklaces and it wouldn’t look like I was going overboard. Enter Wrenn Jewelry! I have had these earrings for over a month and am loving them. There are so many ways to make these fabulous little studs all your own.
1. Start by picking out what color druzy stone you want.
2. Select an earring shape: circular, cushion (square), or triangular.
3. Then pick what you want them wrapped in: gold, rose gold, or sterling silver.
Mine are: confetti (opal white) druzy in a circular shape wrapped in sterling silver & rose druzy in a cushion shape wrapped in gold.
I love the new 10oz mini size Starbucks introduced because I can get my Frappuccino on with my weekly grocery shopping and not feel guilty about adding in too many calories. (I also order mine with nonfat milk and no whip). This is super exciting since they just introduced 6 new fan created flavors to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
They are: Cinnamon Roll, Cotton Candy, Caramel Cocoa Cluster, Red Velvet, Cupcake, and Lemon Bar. I really want to try all of them, except cotton candy (which just doesn’t sound good to me), so I am thankful for the mini size.
Playing Foster Mom-
I know I have already done a whole post on being a kitten foster mom, but seriously these little guys are the cutest, funniest, little dudes. Last night we all watched TV together while they used me as a jungle gym and had races across the couch.
What is it that you are loving this month?
