Good morning and Happy Friday! The weekend is so, so close and it is looking GOOD.
Here are a few things I am loving:
- My CSA box
Look at all those veggies! I am the most excited about okra. I planted some, but there has only been one harvestable pod out of four plants. Technically three, because I found out last weekend that one of the four was a weed. Thanks Grandpa!
- YesTo - I am really loving this brand of mostly natural hair and skin products and use their tomato face wash and carrot shampoo and conditioner. A few weeks ago I was using gel on Ina’s hair and Superman Dan swooped in and grabbed the bottle from me and started (attempting to) read all the ingredients in it. I am now on a mission to find baby friendly hair gel / mousse. Any recommendations?
- When I Eat Healthy, it is because I Prepped These 5 Things Ahead of Time: YES! I always have hard boiled eggs, some type of bean/rice, a dip, and cut of fruit / melon in the fridge. However, I am going to have to agree to disagree on the celery, which I will substitute with cucumbers.
- The pool.
I went swimming yesterday, which was so fun. I was getting into my groove when I was surrounded by tiny swimmers. And when I say surrounded, I mean surrounded - like they were in my lane, diving underneath me, and jumping almost on top of me. Next time I will pay attention to when swim team practice is.
- Moms, Put on that Swimsuit. I cannot tell you how much I love that article. Anytime Ina is in a swimsuit, I will be in a swimsuit.
- Hit and Run 5K - July 19th (in Kansas City).
Have you always dreamed of being a ninja? Then this is the event for you!
God answered my prayers asking for an adult size play place.
Unfortunately, I am not able to make the race this year, but that only means I have a year of training ahead of me. If you are interested you can watch the video here.
A bit of info: Hit and Run 5K is an exciting, fun race for people of all ages. We've have runners varying from ages 10 (the youngest age the participant can be) to 70. You can run, jog, or walk the course depending on your ability. The obstacles are meant to be challenging, but not hard. If you approach an obstacle, but are hesitant, you can go around or watch other racers attempts. We also allow friends and families of the runners to watch and take pictures of their runner at the obstacles. We also team up with local charities and donate some of our funds to their good causes.
If you live in Kansas City and want to tackle this course, enter RunningwithRacheal for a discount code when registering and you can get 20% off. Share the link on FaceBook for another $5 off.
That is all I have for you today. I hope you have a wonderfully blessed weekend and I will see you on Sunday with my food and fitness plan for the week.
