Happy Thursday! I'm trying to be productive and study...so let's do this!
Today I'm feeling thankful...
...for my temporary unemployment. Yeah, it sucks to not have money. But I DO have plenty of time to exercise, relax and enjoy the summer weather. Oh right, and study for that dang RD exam while applying for jobs.
|Hello, beach. Let's be friends.|
...for fun colorful index cards! :) What better way to re-learn everything I ever knew about nutrition than on neon index cards?!
...for pickles. At the risk of sounding like Snooki, I love pickles! So crispy, crunchy and salty. Yum.
...that I found the Nike+ app to replace MapMyRun. I'm not sure if this was a problem for anyone else, but MapMyRun was miscalculating distance on every single one of my runs. It's really not helpful for me to think I've gone a certain distance at a certain pace, only to be completely disappointed! The Nike+ app has been fantastic so far, and who doesn't want random encouragement from professional athletes?
...for finally trying Nuun! So many of the runners and bloggers I follow have been talking about this awesome product for so long, and I've just got along to giving it a shot myself. Nuun is a flavored electrolyte tab that dissolves in water and doesn't contain any sugar or carbohydrates.
I started with Grape because I have a crazy love of grape Gatorade, and I have to say it's tasty and a great way to hydrate!
Now you go...What are you thankful for? Having a job? NOT studying for the RD exam? :)
