Things I’m Loving Lately: May 2012 Edition

Hi there!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend.  I just wanted to stop in with my monthly Favorite Things post!  If you are a new Fitness & Feta reader, every month I do one post on five “things I’m loving lately.”  My friend Ashley actually just started up a blog and adopted the same kind of idea into one of her posts last week!  It’s fun.  Fellow bloggers, ever consider doing a post like this?

Anyways, here you go!

Nike Pegasus Sneakers

Remember when I went to Marathon Sports and bought these sneakers a few weeks ago?  Well, I decided to keep them even though they are a running shoe, because they were so comfortable.  And I’ve been loving them!  Having a sneaker with a wide toe box makes all the difference in the world.  I am still planning on hunting for a cross trainer that has a similar fit as well.  But for now, Nike Pegasus all the way.  Plus they are pretty.  And teal (my favorite color).

Lighting a candle before bed

Since my life has been so hectic for the past couple months, I’ve tried to make time to just BREATHE every single day.  For just 5 minutes.  With everything else I jam pack into my life, I figure that 5 minutes a day CAN be done.  So lately I’ve lit a candle right before going to bed!  And I just lay there, with no technology, and I try to clear my mind of the day.  It’s been a great way to de-stress!

My latest favorite candle?  New “Bali Sunrise” scent from Target.

Do you guys see the picture of my grandparents in the background?  :)

Wheat germ

I don’t know what sparked me to buy wheat germ at the grocery store a couple of weeks ago.  I honestly had no clue what it was.  It just sounded like something I should be buying.  Yes, I’m lame.  I’ve been sprinkling on top of my low-fat cottage cheese with either blueberries or strawberries in the morning instead of my usual go to cinnamon topping.  I also used it to bake banana muffins on Friday!

Disclaimer:  It say’s Mother’s Wheat Germ, but I am not a mom.  Just in case there was any confusion.

When I looked up the health benefits of wheat germ online, this is what I found:

“The health benefits of wheat germ are enormous.  It is a grain fortified with vitamin E, folate (folic acid), phosphorus, thiamine, zinc, magnesium and essential omega-3 fatty acids and fatty alcohols.  It is an excellent source of fiber.”   Source

Suave Wild Cherry Blossom Body Wash

I am not really one to get excited about different beauty products.  I would say 99.9 percent of the time, price determines what I buy at the store over brand or any other factor.  The other day, Suave body washes were on sale at Target.  I picked out a new scent, Wild Cherry Blossom.

Love it!!

New Slippers

Yes, I know it’s Memorial Day Weekend which means the beginning of summer, but I can still be excited about my new slippers.  My old ones were literally falling apart and had holes in them and I was honestly probably 6 months beyond needing new ones.  So to Marshalls I went and bought these comfy things.  I forgot what it’s like to have my feet feel nice and cozy in a squishy slipper!

My feet are ALWAYS cold, so I’ll probably be loving these right through the summer.

What are you guys loving this month!?
