Friday Favorites

Here are a few of my favorite things this week:
Favorite Nail Polish:
 I love this shimmery rose gold color!  
Favorite Purchase:

I bought some new running shoes!  I went to a running store where they watch you walk and match different shoes to your foot type.  So I ended up with the Mizuno Wave Inspire 8.  This is my 2nd pair of Mizunos. 

Favorite Workout:
I did this Thursday morning.  I was drenched in sweat.  At one point I thought I would fall over because my legs were so tired.  It was a great workout, and I burned 226 calories in 30 minutes.  Which is good!  High intensity interval training (HIIT)  workouts are great to do in the mornings.  They burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time and really boost your metabolism for the day. 

Favorite Food:
I have been obsessed with roasting vegetables lately.  I have made roasted vegetables almost every night as a side for 2 weeks.  Its the only way I have ever been able to get the husband the eat veggies at home. 
Heat the oven to 450
I cut up a combo of  brussel sprouts, asparagus, broccoli, and red onions.  I throw them in a very large Tupperware bowl.  Then on top I put some olive oil, a heaping spoonful of minced garlic, S&P, and rosemary.  I put the lid on the bowl and shake them up.  To me this just creates less mess than stirring them and trying to get everything to distribute evenly.  Then I spray the pan with cooking spray and pour them on.  I bake them for 12 minutes.  Sometimes the sprouts have to go a little longer.  But I love eating roasted veggies! 

What's your favorite things this week?  I hope everyone has a great weekend!
