Frigid Friday Faves!

Hey guys,

Last night it SNOWED! And it’s snowing as I type this. SO, I thought I’d give a theme to my Friday Faves.. Chilly winter weather and how I cope with it! LET’S GO!

Soo warm and cozy!

1. Underarmour Coldgear compression tights. I LOVE THESE. They’re seriously so great. I even wear them for nonrunning activities, as leggings when it’s cold out. They’re the best.

Uh. Thisissocute. I want this cat.

2. Warm hats! I have a league of hats that come in and out of my wardrobe. My favourite hat is one my grandma made me though, which is knitted and white. All of my hats are beanie-style.. Keeps my head warm and my hair in place! πŸ™‚

I love oranges and have one or two a day. PLUS vitamin C pills. And the occasional grapefruit. Good news.. I won

3. Vitamin C. When it gets cold, I start needing more and more Vitamin C. It’s the only way I stay somewhat healthy over the winter!

BEST TEA EVERRRR

4. Stash tea. I love this tea. SO MUCH. My favourite is the black chai with milk and the moroccan mint. Seriously, the best tea ever. The other brands of tea I drink are Numi and Tazo, but Stash surpasses them a lot.

Deeelicious oatmeal! PB, vanilla protein powder, soymilk, and of course oatmeal.

5. Warm oatmeal. I don’t think this post would be complete without me expressing my intense love for oatmeal. This is my oatmeal this morning (a la dining hall, eaten in company of rocks), and I think I might have another bowl for dinner. Obsessed.

RUNNING UPDATE:Β I ran 4 miles this morning and my hip felt fine! I ran at an average 9:22 pace, which is SUPER fast for me (at least since I started running, where my miles were.. 12 min?). Slow as a turtle for most, but I’m working on it. I have always had exercise induced asthma, but the more I run, the better it gets. Also, I ran a full mile at a 9:00 pace, which is a big step too. Speed work is obviously REALLY helping me and I’m seeing speed gains so quickly! Yay!

What are your favourite ways to deal with the cold? How’s your Friday going? Are you as obsessed with oatmeal as I am?

Also.. I spent like 20 min in the gym this morning trying to take a picture of my outfit. Why? Because I’ve wanted to do Fashions of my Friday for a while but I always forget to take a picture. Wanna know what these pictures reveal? That I’m really awkward. Anyways, here’s what happens when I try to take a picture of my clothes.

Awkwardness starts.

I'll try a fun picture.. Right? NO. STOP IT, ME.

Yupp. This is a failure. I know it.

I'm bad at this. I truly am.

See ya tomorrow! (I will be posting from HOMEHOMEHOMEHOME!!!!)

  1. Hi, I really enjoyyour blog . Would you mind if I ask what a typical day of eats is like for you? I’m struggling with figuring things out (I’m not a runner though). Thanks for any thoughts, I REALLy appreciate it. You can email me if you want to chat about it. (p.s. you are very pretty!)

  2. I’m wearing a warm hat and underarmour compression pants right now πŸ™‚ I’d like to add a scarf to that list! For keeping my insides warm, I like a steaming cup of coffee. For running I need really thick socks and really thick insulated mittens to keep my fingers and toes warm!

  3. I love oatmeal as much as you, no worries lady πŸ™‚ I have those exact same leggings and I wear them pretty much all of the time lol…that includes during the day when I am not running! I wore them yesterday with uggs as a matter of fact πŸ™‚

  4. OMG I love everything in this post for real! warm oatmeal cannot be beat in the winter. And yes yes YES to compression tights and tea ( the stash teas are so creative, love them!)

    Love your outfit too! You and I have pretty similar styles I think! πŸ™‚

  5. Soooo this post is AMAZING and so is your blog!! And YOU are freaking amazing for running in snow and cold πŸ˜€
    Haha I love your bathroom pics too, that’s usually what happens to me when I get my hands on a camera πŸ˜‰
    Looking forward to reading more from ya!
