Happy Friday! Or as Zoe knows it around here, pizza day!!! We have been making homemade pizza every Friday night in September, and we aren’t hating it. Football season is in full swing, and last weekend was a close one between Alabama and Florida. I am glad we were able to pull out the W! I think my favorite part of the whole game was hearing the stadium singing along with the Tom Petty song I Won’t Back Down. I wish I could have been there and felt that energy.
It has just been nonstop work, work, work over here the last few weeks. Shit is insane, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Just trying to find the balance. The weather here has been incredible this week after the rain finally moved out, and I am trying to soak it in as much as possible. We have been taking longer family walks, and Zoe and I have been outside with side walk chalk, playing ball and working on her gymnastic skills. September – December is definitely my favorite time of year.
Favorite Finds: Did you know that Ulta has a Gilmore Girls collection????? How perfect is this nail set for fall??? I am such a sucker for stuff like this.
Favorite Aldi Find: I forgot to take a picture of our bag, but these Gorgonzola Pita Chips are amazing. All three of us loved them.
Favorite Activities: I saw this toddler fall bucket list, and everything on here definitely needs to happen! We may have already done a few.
Favorite Recipe: We are pulling out all the old favorite soup recipes now that it has dropped below 80 here. I discovered this Mexican Chicken Soup when I did my first round of Whole 30 many years ago. It definitely gets major rotation in our house.
Favorite Workout: Heather Robertson has put out some killer workouts the past few weeks. I did this HIIT this morning that left me drenched and puffing. You don’t need any equipment for this one. I am trying really hard to beef up my daily movement. I am great about working out for at least 30 minutes five days a week, but I need more. Taking walks multiple times a day is easy right now since the weather is so great.
The best way to tackle the upcoming cold/flu season (in addition to the flu shot) is to lower your risk of comorbidities. Getting more movement and eating more real foods and less processed shit is a great way to give your body the boost it needs. I have noticed lately that people who share healthy foods, talk about how different foods can help lower inflammation in the body or talk about getting more movement are being warned their Instagram accounts will be taken down. WTF is actually wrong with the world today. We cant talk about being healthy anymore???? It is absurd. I like to follow those accounts because I learn a lot about different foods and ways that I might be able to reduce certain pain or help with issues I am having.
Linking up for Friday Favorites.
