Like it, Love it, Hate it.


Happy Sunday! Hope you all had a fabulous Saturday! I taught pump and spent 25 minutes on the elliptical ---> HATE. My foot was feeling a little sore from my run earlier in the week so elliptical it was. Anyway, Today I want to share some of my favorite finds lately and some of my not so favorite products I have recently purchased.

First, It snowed yesterday and dropped into the 30’s… after being 70 just the day before.. That is Utah weather for ya, I wanted a nice hot drink to defrost!

Tazo Organic Chai

I was so happy to find this at the grocery store! I love chai! I have been buying it at a local coffee shop for $4 a pop! I was made this taste exactly the same!


I heated up some water and let it steep for a few minutes then added vanilla almond milk (unsweetened) and vanilla stevia!


Absolute Perfection!

Peanut Flour:

I have a few blogger friends that use this and love it compared to PB2.


Verdict: EW. I hated it. It has a bitter flavor and kind of smells like seagull poop. Yes, it has about 16 grams of protein per serving and maybe that is why it is so popular but just not for me.

Frontera Chipotle Pumpkin Salsa:

I bought this on a whim and was excited to try it, I didn’t LOVE it.. but I’ll finish it. It has a smoky,robust flavor to it, and I’m more of a sweet salsa gal.


I have had it on Mahi- Mahi, Chips and even eggs in morning. I guess you can say I “like” it.

Tom Venuto sent me his book

“Burn the fat, feed the muscle”


I just started it and like it so far! It is full of great information regarding nutrition, exercise, and even goal setting. I recommend this book to everyone! I’ll do a full recap once I finish it.

Smart Water:


I drink at least 3 of these a day. I can’t get enough of it! I am super picky about my water and the added minerals and electrolytes help with my workouts and energy. Although, it is the Lulu lemon of water, I only buy it when it is on sale!

Maybeline Baby Lips (Dr. Rescue)


I love this tinted medicated chap stick! I love chap stick that leaves a little tingle on my lips and a bit of color and this does the trick! I just get it at the grocery store because I’m fancy like that.

Red Mango Greek Coconut Yogurt:

I have already posted about this multiple times this week.. Yes, I have been 3 times this week, so what. Dairy doesn’t sit well with me, but this is worth it!


If you haven’t tried Red Mango yet, you NEED too! Red Mango is the healthiest yogurt out there! It has no artificial sweeteners, certified gluten free, and packed with probiotics that are great for your digestive system.

Well, that was fun for a Sunday, off to get ready and do the church thing.

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

I listened to this talk this morning and absolutely loved it. Elder Holland is one of my favorite speakers. I think this message is important for everyone to hear.

"Remember to look ahead in life".......
”Don’t keep going back with your little sand pail and beach shovel to dig it up, wave it around and then throw it at someone, saying "hey you remember this?" splat!

What is something new lately you have tried lately?

Did you like it? Love it? or Hate it?
