Friday.

by Danica on January 18, 2013

1.  I have the biggest, most random craving for carrot cake.  I have no idea where this craving came from, but I want some. bad.

2. I read this recently in Women’s Health…The Top 10 Healthiest Cities to live in…2 MN cities made the top 10 list!  very cool!

3.  I started reading It Starts with Food recently…I have no plans (whatsoever) to start the Whole30 plan, but I’m sure I’ll learn something anyway, and I’m curious to know what the reasoning is behind the plan.

It Starts With Food

4.  I read this earlier this week, and it hit me like a ton of bricks.

5.  These look amazing.  I’ve never had a VitaTop before (the ingredients freak me out), so these would be the perfect solution.

6.  I’m in the market for new running shoes again…I’m definitely going with another Brooks Running pair, but can’t decide between the PureFlow or the PureConnect.  Any recommendations??

7. In true Minnesotan fashion, I’ll take a moment to talk about the weather…It’s supposed to be in the low 40s (!!!)  today and tomorrow, then drop down to a high of 5 on Sunday and a high of -3 on Monday.  Ridiculous.  I’m going to try and enjoy the warmer temps while they’re here though!

8.  Who’s excited for a 3-day weekend?!

Happy Friday!!

No three day weekend here :(
But the ‘High of Five’ comment made me appreciate our ‘warm’ (low 20′s high 50′s) weather! I am such a wimp when it comes to being cold!!
And I say eat the cake ;)

I always crave carrot cake lol There is something filling and wholesome about it. Loved it since I was a child. Got to have some chocolate on it or in it somewhere though to get the big thumbs up.

I have an awesome carrot cake recipe if you would like it…actually, I think I have two recipes! I got Practicale Paleo for Christmas, so maybe we can do a book exchange in a few months because I’d love to read ISWF. Happy 3 Day weekend – It’s only two-day for me, but I’m excited to run my half marathon on Sunday.

And yes, I’m all for the book exchange :)

I’ve heard quite a bit of talk about that book… One of my friends read it and swears by it now, yet she still suffers from allergy problems and is exhausted all the time? I’d be interested to see what you think about it.

Low 40′s?! I can’t remember the last time it got to 40 degrees here! Def enjoy it while you can!

Woohoo for healthy Minnesota!! :) I’m the same way in that I’ve been talking about the weather nonstop lately haha it’s so terrible! -4?!?
I just bought a pair of Brooks and I love them so much. I got them at the Running Room in Roch. I couldn’t recommend their services enough, not to mention I wanted to buy every single article of clothing they sold there. You got me wanting carrot cake bad now, girl. Still practicing your mantra! :)
Have a great weekend, Danica.

I haven’t been there before but I should go! Maybe…I’ll probably want to spend too much money :)
Have a wonderful day!!

Carrot cake is my favorite cake. I always crave it! Also, I have Brooks PureFlow, and I’m a huge fan. I would definitely recommend them!

I got some last night and it was amazing!!
Thanks for your input on the shoe–I’ve heard a lot more people prefer the PureFlow.
