I took a few weeks off from the Five on Friday party but I’m back ready to share a few things I’m loving this week. Like many of these post this list is random. Thank you April, Christina, Natasha, and Darci for hosting this link up. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
1. While shopping at Whole Foods recently I picked up this Kombucha made by Lenny Boy Brewing Company located here in Charlotte and it was so good. So far I have tried the Ginger and Elite Beet and although both were good I have to say the Ginger one is my favorite. Lenny Boy’s is available in other states as well so if you are a Kombucha fan I recommend giving one of these a try. FYI…They also brew their own beer but I think it’s only available in select areas of North Carolina as of now.
2. For the past couple of weeks I’ve been taking Orangetheory classes at a new studio that opened here in Charlotte. I am absolutely crazy about this workout and I feel like I am being challenged in the best way possible. Orangetheory is an hour long interval based workout focusing on strength and cardio. I have introduced my husband to this fast pace workout and needless to say we’re both hooked. After doing 100 jump squats in addition to lunges in this weeks workout I am still sore 4 days later, which in my crazy head I consider a darn good workout.
3. I had two girlfriends over this week for dinner and I made this Ramen Noodle Bowl for us to eat. OHHH MY WORD. It was insanely good. I grew up eating those super unhealthy packages of ramen noodles (Did anyone else call them oodles of noodles??)) and I was so happy to discover this MUCH healthier and flavorful version. I am planning to make it again this weekend but may use chicken in place of the tofu since I will be making it for the mister and he isn’t on board with tofu.
4. I started a new book this week, Fangirl. I haven’t gotten too far in it yet but I like it so far. I loved Eleanor and Park, also written by Rainbow Rowell, so after hearing several good things about this book I figured I would give it a try. Has anyone else read it..? Thoughts?
5 We had a few wonderful days here weather wise this week with sunshine and Carolina blue skies. I am so ready for more days like this.
