Fun Facts Friday - My Food and Fitness Wish List

Rest Day
Today is a rest day for me. I kind of wish I had planned it out better so that I could run today. The temperatures are supposed to be about 50 with sunshine. Sounds like outdoor running weather to me. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny, but only 45, which probably means more like 40. It's ok, you guys in the north can totally chuckle at me for being such a weenie about the weather (Jess did you catch the word choice).

Since I didn't have any workout plans, I had extra time on my hands. During lunch we hit up Whole Foods finally. Been avoiding that one for a while because of major road construction in that direction. After work, the goal was to get a couple of Christmas gifts purchased, finally. I've been really putting this off because of driving in insane traffic.

So far, I've only ordered gifts for my niece and nephew from Amazon. All shopping should be so easy I believe.

My nephew has found this insane passion for cooking and helping his mom out in the kitchen. My niece would be crazy jealous if he got this apron set and she didn't. So they both got one (his is red and hers is pink). Love love easy shopping.

Some people like the shopping frenzy of the season. Are you a hands on shopper or is online the way to go?

Fun Facts Friday - Food & Fitness Wish List
Speaking of shopping, my family always asks what I might want for Christmas. I don't know why, but I always blank out until after the fact. Like after I've given some crazy list of things I just make up off the top of my head. For Fun Facts Friday, I thought it would be fun to share some of my top "wants" for food and fitness gifts.

Food
  • Mixing bowls - only have 2 plastic ones that are pretty old.
  • Mini-food processor - sometimes I used the food processor for 2 or more pieces to a dinner.
  • Cookbooks - not that I usually follow recipes, but I love getting new ideas.
  • Hand mixer - mine finally died. 
  • Gift card - to an online vegan store like Pangea or maybe Netrition that carries a variety of items.

Fitness
  • GPS gadget - like a Garmin perhaps.
  • More arm sleeves - seriously in love with my Saucony Arm Warmers/Sleeves.
  • Long-sleeved running top with thumb holes - I am obsessed with wanting one.
  • More long running pants - because I only have 2 pairs.
  • More running hats - because I always wear a hat to workout in.
  • Better sunglasses for running - mine were only about $19 and kind of hurt my nose.
  • Subscription - Oxygen or Muscle & Fitness Hers mags.
