Good morning. Excuse me as I hit you up with some random goodies.
Last week the New York Road Runners announced the results of the NYC Marathon lottery. Did any one get in? I’m running NYC (and it’s my first ever marathon) this year and would love to know if any readers/friends will be training too. Let me know in the comments! I received guaranteed entry through the NYRR 9+1 program. If you didn’t get in, but want to run, there are two ways to still score a bib. Learn more here.
Anyone else love the Lego movies? Check out this awesome bike helmet that gives you Lego hair. (I think Matt needs it.)
It’s been a while since I wrote one of these posts and there has been so much I’ve been loving recently.
Here are the first two posts in the series:
Since I recently did a big cleanse, healthy eating has been top of mind. A lot of this post’s favorites are food related. Here we go.
I am no newbie to the barre scene. I’m a devoted Physique 57 fan and I’ve tried all the major studios: Exhale, Barre3, Pure Barre, FlyBarre and Xtend Barre. I’ve even taken a barre class in Panama. But recently, I’ve fallen hard for Pop Physique. This LA-based studio opened in NYC last year and I’ve had nothing but fabulous experience sinces.
Pop Physique, I love you. Let me count the ways.
Hi, everyone! What do you think of the new look of Cuckoolemon.com? I would love your opinion; let me know in the comment section if you have any feedback.
Now a few housekeeping items. (Sorry Matt, this is the only housekeeping I plan to do this week.)
Thank you to everyone who entered the REI Giveaway Sweeps. I’d like to congratulate commenter JUANITO! (real name: Jon Goren) on being the randomly selected winner! (I used a random number generator, FYI.) Jon, check your email for your gift card!
A few weeks ago, I participated in Kale with a Side of Fries‘ two-week winter detox jam. I am going to write about my experience soon, for sure. Since the detox, I’ve had a renewed excitement for healthy cooking. I wanted to bake something sweet. I scoured the internet for a healthy muffin recipe and found this 5-ingredient one from the blog Pinch of Yum. The recipe is super simple and the muffins were delicious. I used these gluten-free oats from Bakery on Main. They have 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per serving! (No one is paying me to say this. Though I would be open to accepting dollars, OKAY Bakery on Main?)
Here’s this week’s workout recap!
I wasn’t feeling so awesome this week so I only worked out a few times.
Before I jump into this week’s short re-cap I wanted to share a little info about my new iPhone case. I had a reckless history of iPhone ownership. I’ve drowned my phone in the toilet (who hasn’t?), tossed it down the incinerator of a large Manhattan apartment building (it was an accident), and left it in too many cabs to count (though the NYC Taxi dispatcher system always seemed to find me and return the phone; god bless them).
