Friday Favorites #3: Week of 5/29

This week has been a strange and awesome one at the same time. In San Diego, we had the coldest Memorial Day that I can remember in recent years. We still barbecued but in boots and sweaters. We are a little backwards because Christmas was 85 degrees.
Also, I am now on vacation in Las Vegas where it is sweltering around 97 degrees! I am pretty sure I will catch some sort of cold from the flip flopping weather we have been having lately. I will go ahead and just dive right in with my favorites this week!
  • POM Super Tea!

POM was so wonderful to send me some coupons to try out their new Super Tea! This one in particular is my absolute favorite! I love pomegranate and sweet tea, so to have them combined is outstanding. I found these beauties in my local Von’s so check stores near you and give ’em a try!

  • Leg Day!

If you saw my Booty Poppin’ Workout, you will know I have been doing 2 leg days a week. The first leg day is focused on quads and hamstrings while the second leg day is just “da butt”. I am naturally curvy in my lower body, but I want to build my glutes up. Having two leg days a week though means that I am never fully recovered and have just been walking strange all over. Kinda like this guy:


  • Grapes

I am really not much of a grape person, I tend to lean towards strawberries. This week, I have been eating tons of grapes. I may actually turn into one! They are just tasting really good, and after about a month of eating nothing but strawberries for my fruit, its a nice change.


Well, since I have a “Booty” day at the gym, it only seemed fitting. I alternate between a Booty Poppin’ Playlist and this awesomeness! Check it out, and if you don’t get beast mode in the gym I will be surprised. 😀

  • This picture of my pup.

This is Luna, she will be four in August and she is a rescue from Tijuana. We adopted her when she was only four months old, and she is such a little joy in our lives. This is her snuggling next to me. I love her to pieces.


Here are my favorite CF posts this week!
