July Favorites

1. I was going a little crazy over the homemade strawberry-cream popsicles that I made earlier this month. They were so simple and easy to make.

2. The highlight of this month definitely was the San Francisco Half Marathon. I had been working for and anticipating it for months and I just had a blast. Read the full recap of my race weekend here.

3. They handed out single-serve packages of these Ozery Bakery Morning Rounds as freebies at the San Francisco marathon race festival last week and I was pleasantly surprised. They can be kept in the freezer and can be popped into the toaster for a quick and easy, on-the-go snack/breakfast. I love it. I’ve been looking for a ‘muesli’ bread for so long and I was able to find them at our local Safeway!

4. I got a really good deal on this Aveeno Body Yogurt (I combined a sale with a coupon!) and thought I would give it a try. Lotion usually is freakin’ expensive. It smells really nice and it absorbs quickly and is not sticky at all.

5. I don’t watch a lot TV, but I’ve come across this show Bandit Patrol recently while zapping around and animal shows always pull at my heartstrings. If you wanna meet Lionel, the possum with a broken leg – or baby raccoons, skunks, deer, and other wildlife – be rescued and rehabilitated, watch this show.

6. I’ve been really craving a good ol’ glass of ice-cold Nesquik chocolate milk after my long runs lately. It’s so refreshing and the perfect post-run fuel.

  1. Some new finds here – I’ve never heard of body yogurt?! Tempting. And good ole chocolate milk is my favorite post run treat!

    1. Chocolate milk is so good. :)

  2. The Ozery Bakery Morning rounds look delish! I checked out their website and found out they were available at one store in my area! I am going to look for them. Thank goodness it’s a store I go to occasionally. Thanks for sharing your faves!

    1. Did you try them yet?

  3. I have such a soft spot in my heart for Animal Planet (PItbulls and Parolees is one of my all-time favorites) and I’d love to watch any animal get rehabbed :) Thanks for sharing!

    My first homemade popsicle experience was a success, would love to try with strawberries next! And yes, lotion really is $$ and I hate that so many leave greasy reside. I’ll look for that one next. Thank you!! XOXO

    1. I could watch animal shows all day every day :)

      Yay for the positive popsicle experience :)

    1. Aveeno is pretty good! :)

  4. Nice job on the half Marathon! Also, that Aveeno Body Yogurt sounds awesome!

  5. Love all of your favorites! I tried #3 last year and love them!!

    1. Oh yay! So glad you like them too.

  6. I have never heard of body yogurt! I should be better about moisturizing. I kind of slack on that in the summer when it’s more humid here. I’m also cheap when it comes to lotion for my body! I pay more for my facial products but don’t pay much attention to the lotion I use on my legs and such.

    Mmmm, I loved nesquick as a kid. We always had a tin container of it and it was such a treat when my mom would let us make chocolate milk. That is definitely my favorite post-run treat!

    1. Oh, I am so bad about moisterizing… LOL always hope a new product will change that and get me more excited :)
