Hey y'all! Happy Friday!
I hope everyones week went well! I felt like mine crawled by...but that is probably because we're taking a mini vacation this weekend! Since we both have Monday off for Labor Day, we decided to make the quick 2.5 hour drive over to San Antonio for the weekend! Some of the things on our agenda are:
It's going to be a jam packed weekend! I'll be sure to post a big trip recap next week! In the meantime, here is this weeks Friday Favorites! I hope you all have a fun and safe weekend!
Snapseed, where oh where have you been all my life? Snapseed is an AWESOME photo editing app that has somehow been out of my life until this weed. I am, by no means, a professional photographer, but I've been trying very hard to improve my photo taking skills. A majority of the photos you see on The Fit Chocoholic are taken with my cell phone (gasp!) and then edited in Picasa and now, Snapseed! If you want to improve the images you upload to your blog, Instagram, Pinterest or any other Social Media site, I strongly suggest getting Snapseed. It's a great free photo editing app. For the picture on the left I increased the brightness, saturation, contrast and added a slight lens blur and it made a world of difference.
Nike+ Running App
I've been a MapMyRun user for quite some time, but last weekend I decided to download the Nike+ running app to see what all the fuss was about. And I have to say, I actually like it better than MapMyRun. It offers a ton of training programs that you can follow, and you can choose which type of run you are planning on completing (basic run, distance run, timed run or a speed run). Love it!
2XU Compression Sleeves
I know that I talked about compression sleeves in last weeks Friday Favorites but I honestly feel like these 2XU sleeves have saved my legs the past week. My runs have been significantly less painful which I think can be contributed to my increased endurance and also these sleeves. They are definitely worth the $50 I spent on them.
Special K Red Berries Cereal
If you stopped by the blog earlier in the week, you might have caught my post about my new favorite cereal, Special K Red Berries
. This cereal is seriously delicious. So much so that I might have eaten it for dinner twice this week...
Starbucks Passion Ice Tea
My craving for Starbucks Passion Ice Tea has been fierce lately. I stopped and got a Venti on my way to the nail salon last weekend and it hit the spot. I have them put in 2 packets of Splenda to sweeten it just a bit. Perfect!
While I was out running errands last weekend I stopped by the grocery store and saw that one of our local Volunteer Fire Departments were giving out free hugs! We hugged it out and then I asked if I could take her picture...oh the life of being a blogger!
