Seriously, these weeks are going by so incredibly fast!! I now have a Kindergartener. I can’t even believe I’m saying that. Yes, Mini Cupcake #1 started Kindergarten yesterday. Yey for year round schools!
This week’s topic is “NEW”. We are starting a new month, so I’m going with 5 “NEW” things i’m loving for the month of August! And coincidentally they all start with the letter S!!
1. SKOOP–Skoop is a superfood blend that has every possible super healthy ingredient that you can imagine! I will be trying the A-game which is a Sweetgreens flavor. Right now I’ve been mixing with water (and it actually doesn’t taste that bad). Apparently there are a ton of ways to use it, so I plan on experimenting and will provide you with a FULL review soon!
My new favorite kitchen tool! I have been making zoodles but with a julienne peeler, until I found this. Totally digging this. You can pretty much make anything into a noodle! Zucchini, sweet potatoes (make curly fries for the kids), cucumbers, anything!…my son even made pear noodles today. It was a fun way to get him to eat a healthy snack! Loving it! It has changed my life. For real.

3. Skinny Pop–a new snack to try!
4. Strength Training–it is time to get back on track with my strength training! Moms RUN This Town and He and She Eat Clean have collaborated to come up with a 12 week “Run Builder” strength training plan. I spoke with them and I can definitely do it around my 3 runs a week for marathon training, so I will be starting it as soon as I get back from vacation with Mr. Cupcake in the middle of August! I’d love some buddies to help keep me accountable! It’s really affordable as well, so go check it out!! You can find it here!
5. Sneakers–I’m up to almost 400 miles on my Asics and have been looking for another cushioned shoe. The Mizuno Wave Prophecy was a deal too good to pass up. Normally retails for over $200, I scored them for $99 at Road Runner. I’ve worn Mizuno in the past, but not this model. I’m hoping for the best!
What NEW things are you loving right now?
Anyone have a favorite “zoodle” recipe?
Will you try a new shoe if it’s a good deal or do you stick to the same make and model?
