Nutty For… [9.19]


Hey! Like my new kicks? I do. Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14. You might even say I’m nutty for them.

Here’s what else I’m nutty for this week!

Nutty For… Life
Okay so maybe you’re like “haha that’s the name of your blog,” but this list of 30 things to do every year really emphasizes how important it is actually live the life we’re given… which should definitely include #6 and absolutely #13 (<< def making this a thing in my life now). Be a nice & happy human!

Nutty For… Cleanliness
This totally made me want to vom. You can bet I’m going to do a better job of washing my fitness clothes right after I wear them (I’m looking at you smelly mat towel).

Nutty For… Pumpkin Spice
I can 100% for certain say I haven’t had a PSL yet this season… HA wait, it’s not even actually the season for pumpkin spice lattes, anyway. That starts on the 22nd, kids. Do you feel like the pumpkin spice craze has hit an all-time high this year? R29 has a great imagined list of pumpkin spice products. PS – am I the only one who pronounces “pump-kin” as “punkin”?

Nutty For… Cool Women
Back in the day, I wanted to be an EIC of a print magazine. Recently, Cosmo changed heads and landed Joanna Coles as the new woman in charge. After reading this interview, I was totally inspired & might actually start to read Cosmo.

Nutty For… Pinterest
Have you ever wondered, “how do I get more Pinterest followers?” I have, like everyday. Solution 1 is to start using it more (wink wink self 😉 ). If you’re like me, you’ll get a lot out of this list.

Nutty For… My Body
Sometimes I take everything my body does for granted. I have terrible eyes, but I can still see. I have arthritis in my knee, but I can still walk. Arman woke me up to this with his post this week – be grateful for your body.

Nutty For… SEO Tips
Lord knows I need ’em. These are some good reminders with regards to images + SEO.

Nutty For… Learning Lessons
I really resonated with this post about expectations and disappointments. I’m one of those people who easily dreams of the best possible outcome, and I often set myself up for failure that way. I’m not saying lower your expectations, but it’s important to realize that you have to be ready when life doesn’t go as expected.

Smoky Black Bean Beet Burgers
Strawberry Shortcake Skillets
Gluten Free Breakfast Quesadilla
No-Bake Vegan Oatmeal Fudge Bars

Nutty For… Fitness

  1. I’ve been subscribing to Cosmo for years, but I noticed a big difference in the quality once Joanna Coles came on board – I was getting ready to unsubscribe but I love the direction she’s taken the magazine in – the exclusives and the career/real life advice is great. So Cosmo is once again my favourite.

  2. Rockin’ those shoes. I just got some new nikes but haven’t worn them yet…..I’m a loser like that. I need to hear you say pumpkin. Punkin. Actually, there’s an Australian variety called punkin lolol.

    Thanks for the shout out- let’s give hail mary’s to our bodies.

  3. This week I was totally nutty over PBRunner’s spiced zucchini/carrot bread recipe too! I also found a recipe for pumpkin/white chocolate chip/macadamia nut cookies that I can’t wait to try. Although I learned just how expensive macadamia nuts are…good lord!

  4. Love this list! I haven’t read the Cosmo article but I know I will die over it because I (like you) wanted to be the EIC of a print magazine at one point… #girlboss #toocool. And yay for being grateful for our bodies! And those oatmeal fudge bars… ummm in my mouth please!

  5. Thanks for including me! My favorite magazine used to be Cosmo, actually. It’s gone downhill to me, personally, and my views have changed as I’ve gotten older, so Women’s Health is my favorite now. I have been reading Cosmo since I was like 16! Haha Favorite running shoe is the Brooks Ghost!

  6. I love my Mizuno Wave Inspires. I’ve worn them since 9th grade and had about a bajillion different pairs of them. Anddddd they finally came out in purple this year!

  7. Looks like I have many articles/posts to read today. Thanks for sharing, Ang!

    p.s. I haven’t had a PSL either – which could be bc I’m pregnant. I did have a PS frappaccino w/o the coffee & sadly it wasn’t good 😦

  8. There’s a million one tips for how to increase our pinterest followers when the answer is just as you said, use it! The more you use it, the more followers you’ll get! Thank god for scheduling which makes it look like I’m using it all the time when really I’m 3 glasses of wine deep and nowhere near a computer HA
