Friday Favorites 118
I'm on the road this week, so the Friday Favorites are short and sweet!
1. Fitbit Versa
Yippee!!!! My husband surprised me with a new Fitbit! The Versa! I had the Surge for years and as you know, I love everything about Fitbit smart watches. The Versa is similar to the Apple watch in size and look, it's easy to read stats and readouts, it's water resistant up to 50 meters, and it works with iOS and Android. The apps and watch faces are fun and the 4 day battery life beat the heck out of the Apple Watch! I just love the sleek design and I'm able to read the stats much easier with my aging eyes. It does not have a built in GPS, but I run with my phone anyway, so I didn't need one in my smart watch. My review of the Versa is definately 2 thumbs up!
2. Chocolate Donut Seasoning by Flavor God
Full confession...I do have a sweet tooth. The challenge is finding ways to satisfy my sweet craving without going off the rails with sugar. One of the wonderful ladies in our class turned me on to Chocolate Donut Seasoning by Flavor God. It is just the cure for that sweet tooth craving. Its made with cocoa, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and some other spices that make you feel like you are getting a real sweet treat! I add it to my overnight oats recipe, plain greek yogurt, I even sprinkle it in my coffee for a morning treat! Enjoy some chocolate donut without the guilt.
The mission of the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis is to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the art, history and cultures of the American West and the indigenous peoples of North America. From the building itself to the awe inspiring art it displays, you can't help but feel invigorated by the creativity and beauty you see all around you. My life becomes so busy with the schedule of a family of seven, that I rarely get an opportunity to take a moment to enjoy a place like this. Luckily, while visiting my folks in Indy, my Dad, sister and I were able to sneak away for a little field trip. It really did feed my creative soul! And....we were able to meet "the Duke"!
4. Kansas City Workout
We are in KC for a softball tournament this week and we are staying in an area called Country Club Plaza. It was built in the 1920's as a shopping destination using fabulous Spanish style architecture. Right across from our hotel was an amazing rubberized 3/4 mile track that had workout stations peppered all along the path. I love getting in workouts in new places when we travel. You meet such energized people when you are out at 6am (because the afternoon temp got over 100*!) AND it's important to get out of your comfort zone and try something new every once and awhile. So, if you are a yoga gal...try kayaking with a buddy. If you are a runner....try a Pilates class. Mix it up and be adventurous! When you do, there's never a dull moment and for me, life is more fun when I live in that zone!
