things i’m digging.
1. Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale
After a month of no alcohol (thanks to the elimination diet), I was so happy to welcome it back by diving face first into a pumpkin beer this past week. I love micro brews and I love drinking local, but I cannot deny the deliciousity of Blue Moon, even though it’s owned by Coors. I’ve loved the Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale since college and my love for it continues this fall.
2. Runner’s World
I’m not a “big” runner. I’m a running dabbler, really. But man, I love this magazine something fierce. Of course, there are a lot of running specific articles, but there are also a lot of just general fitness and lifestyle articles. I find it so inspiring! Plus, I promise, if you read Runner’s World in a waiting room or at the gate at the airport, you’ll make a new friend. Reading Runner’s World is like wearing the gang colors for runners.
3. Chair sits
For some reason, I decided to bring back the ole invisible chair sit from the depths of 5th grade P.E. at the gym last week. I’m a big fan of body weight strength tests (like planks, too!) and this one is my newest challenge. And it burns so good! I was able to do 25 seconds my first go ’round. I’d like to work up to 3 minutes eventually. Gosh, just typing that sounds painful.
4. Honeycrisp Apples
Are they organic? No. Local? Absolutely not. But they are seriously the most delicious apples on earth. If you’ve never had a Honeycrisp apple, I highly recommend running to your grocery store and picking some up. They are crisp, juicy, tart and sweet. And they only show up in the stores for a few weeks around this time every year. They are totally worth the pesticide.
I’ve always been a big water drinker, but I’m starting to really grasp how important staying hydrated is to my body. I used to treat my headaches with caffeine or Excedrin, but the last few times my head has started pounding, I’ve been able to get rid of the pain by drinking a glass of water. When I get fatigued in the afternoon, I drink water and feel more energetic. I know there are a lot of special “waters” out there, but plain ole tap water will always and forever be my favorite.
