5 Things I Can't Live Without

Remember Fast 5 Fridays? Me either lol. I did it once and I decided to dust it off and do it again :)

Here are the 5 things I can't live without!

1. Old Navy Compression Pants  $35
Whether for Yoga or Bootcamp or just plain jogging, I love these pants. They hold me in, and support my jiggly bits :)

2. Nike Free 4.0 $90

I love my Nike LunarGlides, but I think I need something with a little less arch support. These are adorable :)

3. Spinach
I eat a ton of spinach. In smoothies, salads, on sandwiches, etc. I can't get enough of the green stuff!

4. Alpine Valley Organic Bread $4 
This bread saved my carb loving life. I knew a non negotiable for me would be bread. I love it too much to Just Say No. After I learned that my go to, SaraLee 45 calorie wheat was laced with High Fructose Corn Syrup (as well as other un-pronoucables) I was frustrated and angry! That was until I found this delightful bread :) 100% organic, nothing crazy in it, and it's only 60-80 calories per slice. I have this toasted EVERY morning :)

5. Starbucks Blonde Roast
Speaking of things I have EVERY morning. This is the best thing ever. I brew it in my Keurig, and omgiloveit. It has a nice mild robustness, which is great for mornings, and it really packs the caffeine punch. People ask me what my secret is to waking up at 4:45 am to work out and still function at work. This, my friends, is the answer.

There you go! What are some things you can't live without?


  1. I absolutely love my Nike Frees! I went to a physiotherapist and he recommended shoes that you can bend in half (which these do) and since I prefer barefoot these feel great. They have such ROOM!

    I've never had Starbucks coffee, but a blonde roast sounds more to my liking. Perhaps I'll have to try it!

  2. I wear the ControlMax capris from Old Navy and I swear they make me feel like a new woman.

    I have three pairs of them and if they weren't sold out currently, I'd by one hundred more. They keep my butt from jiggling when I run. And they make my legs look skinnier. Winning...

    Lately, I couldn't live without my heart rate monitor. It's something about seeing numbers that makes my workout feel so much more legitimate.



I would love to hear from you! Have something to say? Say it here!
