Victoria Secret Pink anything!! I love their 2/$40 & 2/$30 deals. They have the best and most motivating work out gear… I swear getting a new PINK shirt, or new Leggings/yoga pants really get me pumped to push a little harder. There is something behind feeling good on the outside that motivates you to give your all to feel good on the inside. If I feel “cute” or attractive… I have a little pep in my step during my Run or weight lifting.
Knee High Socks… My best friend is the main culprit for this one. Sure I wore knee High socks as a teenager. Especially since I used to ride around town on my longboard skate board wearing my worn out jean cut off shorts, slip on vans and knee high socks. But now as an adult. I have to say they are sexy, comfy and have been a fun accessory to my runs.
A really good cup of black coffee!! Recently while visiting LA my husband found this amazing little café in Beverly Hills on the way to the Beverly Center. It’s called Kings Road Café. They have amazing black coffee. They have a special way of making it too, they have a special blend of 9 coffee beans that they put through an espresso machine.. so even if you bought a bag to take with you, it wouldn’t be the same as sitting and enjoying the great food, service and coffee. Plus their coffee cups are well, fit for a king!
Favorite Bean Soup: serves 5
Ingredients: 1 can organic low sodium black beans, 1 can organic low sodium pinto beans, 1 can organic kidney beans, 1 can organic white beans, 1/2 minced white or yellow onion. (I prefer white) 1 cup minced green onion, 1 can stewed tomatoes, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1 tsp turmeric
Directions: place all canned ingredients into your stew pot, bring to a boil. Turn the flame down to simmer and then add your spice, simmer for about 6 mns and let cool. Feel free to make the beans from scratch I don’t always have a lot of time so this is a great filling recipe for a busy day.
Motivational text messages with Fitspo pictures and sayings from my best friend!! Reminding me of my commitments and promises I made to myself and my family. It helps to have a great support system, or even just one!
Vegan Goodies that you find in the supermarket or favorite “all market” like target and Wal-Mart. I love to be surprised and you can’t beat the taste! and the Nutritional Facts are always comforting too 🙂
That’s just a small peak of some my favorite things that I rely on to keep me moving forward and motivated!!
