I hope you all have been having a great weekend so far and have fun plans for your bonus day off tomorrow! I have to say, I’m definitely excited to have an extra day off this week. It’s been forever since I’ve taken a day off so this is a much needed break for me. In my opinion, all weekends should be 3 days anyways. That way you get one day to bum around, one day for fun stuff and one day for chores. Am I right or am I right?!?
Yup… this is happening today. Looks like my schedule is all clear now to spend some time catching up with you lovely people! Good thing too, because I have some favorites I’ve been wanting to tell you about all week! Let’s get into it! Continue reading →
Disclaimer: I received product from Nuun Hydration for my participation in this taste test. Nuun also provided the product for this giveaway. I received no other compensation. As always all opinions are my own.
Last week I got an exciting invitation to Nuun Hydration Headquarters in Seattle, WA. For my first task as a Nuunbassador, I participated in a blind taste test of two different versions of four existing Nuun flavors. Nuun is working on improving some of their flavors, so I tasted the current version and the new version and gave my thoughts on which version of the flavors I liked best.
I wasn’t originally planning on doing a year in review recap since I didn’t start A Couple of Dashes until August, but after reading a few by other bloggers (Lake Shore Runner, Meals and Miles and Run Eat Repeat), I decided I would be sad if I didn’t have one to look back at next year. My year was filled with some crazy highs and lows. I lost some old friends and made some new ones, let go of some dreams that could never fully make it to fruition, but also saw some dreams I never could have imagined before come true. So here’s a look back at all the shenanigans I got into in 2014! Let’s get to it!
I’m so excited that Halloween is on a Friday this year! It makes it a lot more fun to be able to have Halloween parties on Halloween! Are you guys doing anything fun for Halloween today? I’m going to the gym to get a good workout in before I head out to a friends’ party. I’m hoping that since it’s Halloween, the weight room will be less busy than usual so I can get in strength training workout #2 toward my completing my workout challenge for the week! Fingers crossed!
1. To start the celebration out right, here are some cute puppies in Halloween costumes! I can’t even begin with the amount of cuteness here! I mean Winnie the Pooh?!?!
After doing my Drink More Water Challenge for awhile, I started to get a little tired of drinking attempting to drink a gallon of plain old water everyday. Lately I’ve been searching for the perfect way to add a little flavor to my water to make it more interesting to drink, without adding a ton of extra calories or sugar to my diet. I tried fruit infused water for awhile and though it’s delicious, I’d rather eat my fruit, than just let it sit in my water for flavor. I also went through a phase where I was obsessed with liquid water enhancers, but then I started to feel a little bloated and gross from drinking them so much, so I kicked those to the curb too.
