Friday Favorites 3/20/15 feat. LesserEvil popcorn and Hip Hop Spin

This week has been crazy busy and stressful so I'm just popping by to link up with my 5 Friday favorites from the week here here, and here.  

Despite the fact that it's snowing and raining here today, I'm still celebrating the fact that spring is indeed here. I just want to be able to wear shorts without freezing, c'mon. 


1. Favorite Snack: LesserEvil Avocado-licious Popcorn

I'm really excited to announce I'm a LesserEvil Ambassador, a company I've loved ever since I reviewed their snacks last year. I am queen of snacking so having some crunchy snacks and popcorn on hand that are gluten-free, non-gmo, and full of nutritious ingredients is awesome. I was literally speechless when I came home from work one day this week to see three HUGE boxes of snacks waiting for me!

I'm been currently working my way through bags of their Avocado-liciousBuddha Bowl popcorn made with avocado oil and pink Himalayan sea salt which will be hitting the shelves soon. It's only 40 calories a cup so there's no need to feel guilty when I eat half the bag! The subtle flavor from the avocado oil is so unique. I will definitely be sharing more snacks from LesserEvil with you. 

2. Favorite Workout: Hip Hop Cycle with Shauna Harrison

This is technically from last week, but I got to try out Hip Hop Cycle at REV Cycle Studio with Under Armour sponsored Shauna Harrison. Shauna created Hip Hop Cycle in Baltimore which makes it even more special. The spin class was intense with lots of hill climbing, and her soundtrack  was awesome! You should be following Shauna Harrison on Instagram because she posts #Sweataday, an exercise to try each day.  She also has killer arms which put mine to shame.

3. Favorite Song: Shut up and Dance by Walk the Moon

I LOVE Walk the Moon, and their super catchy songs. I have been loving their new album including this single which has been all I want to run, sing, cook, or groove to lately.   I dare you to listen to this song and not get it stuck in your head. 




4. Favorite Fitness Gear: CALIA by Carrie Underwood 
I'm currently lusting over the new CALIA fitness wear collection by Carrie Underwood at Dick's Sporting Goods. I love all the feminine details and how they clothes are fashionable yet still look functional & comfortable. The collection definitely has a Lululemon vibe to it.  I'm loving this, this, and this

5. Favorite Post-Run Eats: Pizza 

Last night I was lucky enough to get out of work in time to head over to Falls Road Running Store with some November Project friends for a fun run with Hoka where I finally go to wear-test a pair of their shoes. I always make fun because they do look like moon shoes but have been really intrigued by them because all I hear is good things. The shoes were really cushy and the lower heel drop offset really changed my foot strike. I'm not sure my thoughts on them yet.

Anyways, the best part was there was amazing pizza waiting for us after the run. I was expecting run-of-the-mill pizza but this was so delicious. There was even cake for someone's birthday too. I will run for pizza any day! I seriously do not have enough pizza in my life lately. 

I've got a big exciting weekend that is getting started earlier this Friday. 

Do you have any fun weekend plans? What's your favorite song of the moment?

    1. No it'll be in stores soon! I know they sell LesserEvil products at Whole Foods, Wegmans, and a few other grocery stores by me.

  5. Ohmygoodness, I am the BIGGEST popcorn fan. That probably sounded a little intense, but I really am. Specifically kettlecorn, but I can't turn any popcorn down. I've seen LesserEvil before, but haven't tried them out yet. The fact that they make an avocado oil popcorn is amazing, I'd love to check them out! Hopefully I can find them in a nearby supermarket.
