Happy October! I know this isn’t my first post in October, but it’s what I’m loving now for October and one of the things I am simply loving is this month! It really actually feels like Fall here in Abilene. So lovely! Now if only the leaves would just change.

This month’s “What I’m Loving Now” includes some great products that I had the pleasure of sampling this last month. While the companies did provide me with free samples, the opinions are all my own!
I’ve been a little obsessed with squash of all kinds lately! I just tried carnival squash for the first time on Friday. It is SO good! I’ll be posting a recipe in not too long using carnival squash and eggs for breakfast! I like to eat the skin of almost all squash (extra fiber) but carnival squash skin is actually really tasty!
It’s like Fall in wax form. It’s not too pumpkin-y or apple-y, just a perfect combination!
PaleoKrunch Cereal by Steve’s Paleo
Steve’s Paleo is a company with high quality products and an incredible mission. Steve’s Club is a non-profit that brings “fitness, nutrition guidance and mentorship to at-risk youth.” As soon as I finished Whole30 I was excited to try this cereal (it contains raw honey). Oh my goodness. I can’t get enough. And you better believe I’m ordering their seasonal pumpkin cereal!
Emily, one of my dearest friends, has started a blog with two other ladies. It’s perfect for someone like me with no fashion sense and not a ton of money. They “believe that personal style and financial responsibility are not mutually exclusive.” Brilliant.
I have to be honest; I’m not a huge beef jerky fan. I love turkey jerky, because it’s usually easier to chew. Well I love both the beef and turkey sticks, of Nick’s Sticks! The best part? They contain no MSG, no antibiotics, no hormones, no red dye and no sugar! And the beef are grass-fed. I’m also a huge fan because they donate 5% back to The Fisher House Foundation, a program that provides support to military in need. What’s not to love?
These are like TRX straps, but much more affordable! My workouts lately have been a combination of these and yoga [and teaching spin and half-marathon training 🙂 ]. There are so many ways you can use the straps and everything works your core!
What are YOU loving now?! Leave a comment and let me know, cause I really would love to know!!

Whaaaaat 1/2 are you doing?? Pleeeeaase say it’s the San Diego Holiday Half because guess who just registered for it today?? Me! That would be redicilous amounts of fun if we got to do the same race 🙂
Heather! YES! That IS the one!! Jonathan Whitman is doing it too!! 🙂 We get to run right by my house! So fun, I’m so excited that you’re doing it!!
Awesome! That will be so cool! We will have to talk once it gets closer 🙂 Do you have a goal time in mind?
Yes we will definitely have to! Well with teaching spin and grad school, I can’t really put much into training. But I just love the half distance and was itching to do another race! I’d like to stay close to my half marathon PR though, which is 1:47. What about you? I’m so inspired by you, by the way, running mama of 2!! 🙂
I would love to go under 1:50 but that might be a bit ambitious for me. Although with the net downhill, maybe not! My PR is 1:56, so anything better than that I will be happy with!
I know that net downhill will be nice! So excited to do a race with you!
