Boots, Mobility & one last taste of Summer {Recipe}

Summer is officially over. I’ve been hanging on to the last few days of warmth but alas, it’s time to pull out the boots and scarves.

Speaking of… I just bought a new pair of snow boots for the first time since I was like ten. Being a Colorado native you would think that I would realize that UGG boots aren’t proper snow shoes.

I bought them at Nordstroms Rack for 40% of the original price. I LOVE Nordstroms. I also found a pair of Sperry’s there for $30… but they weren’t available in my size. Sad. Face.

Watermelon Spritzer

If you haven’t been able to tell, I was on a Watermelon craze this summer.I experimented putting the juicy fruit in almost everything, including smoothies, drinks…pancakes. Just kidding, that would be gross.

One day I decided I wanted something refreshing and bubbly. I love carbonation! It adds a little something to your beverages .

Into the blender went:

  • Half can of peach fresca
  • 5 large watermelon chunks
  • Squeeze of fresh lime
  • 1/2 of ice

Blend it all together until slightly slushy! Even though the weather is cooling down, we still have a few days of warmth left ahead before we get hit with full blown blizzards.

It also would taste good with a shot of vodka for a healthier cocktail. Girls night anyone?

Post Half Marathon

It’s officially been 4 days since the Rock n’ Roll half marathon and I can say that I’m pretty much back to normal. I still need to catch up on my sleep (I haven’t been very good about going to bed early), but my body is ready to incorporate exercise back into my routine.

I went to CrossFit today and could tell that my quads were still pretty tight, but I was still able to complete the WOD, I just used lighter weights! I’m ready to get back into the swing of CrossFit and am even debating on signing up for a month of MobilityWOD.com. $8 will get you a months worth of mobility workouts. Sounds like a deal to me.

Only 2 days until the weekend!
