Stretching out the kinks at a truck stop in Iowa after two days in the car. This week I’m on the road with my four kids and two nieces.
She is the CUTEST. So I’ll be MIA this week, frolicking with my kids, laughing with my parents who are finally empty nesters after 35 years (!!) and trying to give my sister allll the college advice (which thus far has amounted to “never say no to riding a mattress down a mountain in the middle of the night” and “don’t postpone starting final projects.” It’s ok, she still loves me.). In the meantime I have some fun stuff to share:
Fitsugar sent me* a complimentary “must have ” box for June, to try out their box o’ the month club. It came with all these fun goodies:
I really dug the Lollies hair ties . I always have at least one hair tie on my wrist at all times and these make it look like jewelry – like I actually tried when I got dressed! I found the “turkish towel” confusing though. It’s big enough to be an actual towel but the material is super thin and not really absorbent:
I also tried tying my hair up in it (too wide) , using it like sarong (too boxy) and running around the house with it tied to my shoulders like a cape (too perfect). Seriously, what are you supposed to do with a Turkish towel???
*I got the box for free but the opinions, lotion explosions and bad selfies are all mine! If you’re interested in trying the popsugar box, GFE readers get $10 off with the code JUNESELECT10
In addition, two GFE readers are doing some really cool stuff I had to let you know about :
– Jen Picicci wrote me to tell me if her new intuitive eating coaching business. She’s super qualified with certs in coaching, intuitive eating counseling certification, and as a NASM certified personal trainer, plus a Master’s in Health Education. She’s looking for 10-20 people’s opinions on some challenges they face when it comes to overeating, dieting, body obsession, etc And for those who are willing to respond, she will send them an email with some questions and once they answered she will give you a free 30 minute coaching session. If you’d like to be a part of her project, her site is http://jenpicicci.com and her email is Jen@jenpicicci.com
– My good friend and personal trainer (the first person ever to get me on a weight floor!!) Nasca Richey has started her own fitnes site leanguns.com
I love seeing all the cool stuff you guys do!!!
Lastly, I wanted to give you a quick update on my cat Luna! (Remember she got stuck in a car engine and got terribly burned?) She is doing soooo much better now! All her casts are off, her sores are healing beautifully , she’s eating like a champ again (and still loving her Sheba!), and – best of all – she’s back to peeing in her litterbox and not on my bed!! I really appreciated all of you who prayed for her, wished her well, emailed me about her or otherwise helped. You guys helped me through a really scary, sad situation and I’m so grateful! (Don’t worry, I didn’t leave her home alone. My husband is there with her as he didn’t have enough time off for the road trip.)
I hope you all have a wonderful week too!!
