April was a pretty darn good month. Aside from the emotional highs and lows, which are never-ending at this point, I’m sad to see it go. Florida was on very good behavior weather-wise, I saw family, friends, ran a half marathon, started the job search (is that good? bad??) and spent a lot of time outside.
In lieu of a “Currently” post, I’m going to share some of my favorites from the month…personal, fitness, food, etc.
My first favorite: the pants I’m wearing in the picture above. I’m so excited to be an ambassador for Terez, the most vibrant, energizing workout leggings in the business. Here I’m wearing their Dip Dye Denim Performance Leggings. They run true to size and are super comfortable (a requirement). You can get your own discount at checkout using the code: emilyj25.
Next, the food favorite of the month was a really odd one, I have to admit. I’m not even the biggest radish fan but, my goodness, these things are stunning. No filter on these photos!
Two books that I enjoyed/am enjoying: “The Vactioners” and “Defending Jacob.” The first is an easy read, but the second is deeper and keeping me hooked! I’m about a third of the way through.
Adult Coloring Books
The fact that I now own an adult coloring book kind of shows you where I am in life: not quite ready to grow up. In all seriousness, coloring the best de-stressor and break from social media. Instead of aimlessly scrolling through Instagram after dinner I’ve been coloring. In between the lines, I might add. I bought this one at Barnes & Nobles. They have a ton of options and themes!
One of the most architecturally beautiful restaurants in Tampa is Oxford Exchange. I hadn’t been in months so my mom and I went for lunch last weekend (after going stand-up paddle boarding!). It was kind of nice to dress up for once, but don’t hold me to that statement. We sat in their sunroom so excuse the squinting eyes.
We ordered the same exact salad, no surprise. Kale, arugula, mixed greens with avocado, pumpkin seeds and chicken.
Elite Daily posts
I had two articles published on Elite Daily this month (actually, this week). My thoughts on this process is a post in itself, but in the meantime, I’m happy to have some more articles online. Both are quick, easy reads but hopefully provide some entertainment :)
College Won’t Be The Best 4 Years of Your Life, And That’s Perfectly Fine
4 Fitness Myths That Make You Feel Insecure About Your Workout Routine (a revised/updated take on this post)
What’s to come in May?
Off the top of my head…
-My sister is coming home from her freshman year soon and I’m excited to have a lazy-weekend buddy. Although, I’m contemplating making her do the BBG workouts with me. We’ll see if she reads this and protests.
-I’m running a 10k next weekend
-More time at the beach. Because, Florida.
-As for the blog, next month is my two-year blogiversary (blog anniversary). I have a few blogging-related post ideas along with a big giveaway to say thank you to everyone.
Enjoy your weekend!
