Favorites at the moment

This is going to be insanely hard to do but here are some of my favorite things lately.

Favorite read of the moment:

I just finished reading Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. As a female working in a male dominated environment/company, I loved this book! My company does have a couple of female executives, which is rare for my industry, but I'd love to see more. This book made me want to get up and do more.

Song on repeat:

Rude by Magic has been on repeat on my Spotify list lately. While not the happiest song, it has a great beat and I've found it stuck in my head!

Athletic gear:

Old Navy Compression Pants have been my favorite for a while! I got to try them and receive a pair when I did the Pretty Muddy Mud Run for Fit Approach and bought two additional pairs. My favorite thing? They offer them in Petite, Regular, and Tall sizes and at 5'3, this makes me happy!

Adidas Ultimate Tee are my go to shirt on training days (or days I forget to shave...). I own three of these in black, grey, and purple. They are super comfy, don't ride up like crazy, and don't get bogged down my sweat.

An art book:

Lovely: Ladies of Animation. I actually backed their Kickstarter initially, and absolutely love the artwork of these ladies. I'm looking to purchase a few of their respective prints for my home soon.

Nail polish of the moment:

Rocky by Zoya!  I wear a lot of blue nail polish, it's kind of been my go to since I was a teenager, I just changed the range of colors I wear.

Foodie Friday

Now it's time for dinners we prepare at home.

This one was roasted butternut squash, asparagus, and baked tilapia. 

Brown "fried" rice with mixed veggies, scallops and chicken! 

Fajitas! We made chicken and steak and the veggies used were red/green bell peppers, zucchini, jalapenos and onions along with roasted corn salsa my boyfriend made. I made Mexican rice, and we had some more scallops. 

We ate some on lettuce wraps, and some with corn tortillas.  This was one of our much heartier meals, typically these happen on Saturday or Sunday night when we have more time.

More seafood! Shrimp and scallops with roasted beets, and a kale salad with pepitas, slivered almonds, and cranberries.

Foodie Friday

My diet is usually my weakest point, but thanks to my boyfriend helping keep my butt in gear, it has gotten MUCH better. So with this post, I will give you some examples of meals I typically eat when I'm at work!

Inside my 6 Pack Bag-Camille tote! There will be another post on that. But I typically put all of my food for the day in here. The little orange container had a kale salad. Edamame below that.

My breakfasts have to be simple, as I usually eat as soon as I get to work (after getting my coffee and water). These oats are great and cook easily first thing in the morning. I keep a glass Pyrex bowl at work specifically for my oats. On the right, is Greek yogurt with strawberries, sometimes I slice up peaches instead. 

 Lunch one day. Spinach with lemon juice, topped with onions and fresh pineapples. Next to it, leftover steak with rice and black beans. 

My own trail mix. Raw almonds, smoked almonds, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, and dried cherries. I keep this in my desk at work for mid-morning/afternoon snacks. 

This is my Define Bottle that I purchased a while back. The kid that invented this was on Shark Tank a while back (apparently) and I really love this bottle. Keeps the fruit separated by the center filter piece, washes easily, and I can have non-boring water at work.
