Things I'm Loving - May Edition

Hey there blog friends!

I know- I have totally neglected you.  Let me make it up to you with a whole post full of goodness for you.  Things that are making me happier and healthier - you might like them too!

Let's start with Mother's Day.  How was yours?

I got to start my Mother's Day running a 5K with the people who call me "mom".

Ken bought me this shirt - it was really fitting because sometimes 
I feel like saying this when my sweet girls act like they might die while we run.

Then we met up with Ken and had some brunch after the race! 

Now on to some other goodies for you...

Chalene Johnson recently did this podcast on Complex Personality Types.
I listened to it while I was driving in my car and I kept wondering how she was talking about me when we've never met. I'm an outgoing introvert, in case you wanted to know.  Listen to the podcast and find out all about me & my complexities.  (My friends are laughing now.)

I've become a little bit obsessed with Quest Bars. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is my favorite.
Apparently it's the favorite of some of my family members too because they seem to
disappear from the pantry pretty quickly.

I'm so proud to be an Ambassador for  1st Step Pro-Wellness!
Recently I requested that we send some protein powder to someone who works with patients in end-stage renal failure.  I learned that many of these patients have trouble meeting their protein requirements and powders are helpful, but can be expensive.  We were able to send full-size containers of Vanilla & Chocolate Whey Protein powders to those patients.  I love the generosity of this company!

Today I did a glute/hamstring workout with these Power Glide Discs.  Oh my heavens! Use these for squats or lunges and it adds an element of stability that makes your muscles take notice!
