Happy Friday, friends! I'm back for my weekly Friday Favorites link-up post. I hope that you all have a fun weekend ahead of you. I'll be hanging out with my three best friends tonight so my weekend will definitely be off to a good start! Let's get into what I've been loving this week...
1. Skyfit App
I discovered this app on Instagram a few weeks ago and decided to try it out this week for one of my cardio days. Here's the description the app store gives:
Skyfit: The only app to turn your phone into an on-demand fitness studio with all your favorite classes and music. That drive you feel to run, push or pedal harder in a class or when working with a personal trainer? Skyfit recreates that exact experience by synchronizing the voice of a trainer with a playlist of all the music you love, to deliver fun and motivating guided workouts straight your earbuds.
Skyfit has the following categories: Treadmill, Outdoor Running, Elliptical, Indoor Cycling, 5K Training Program, 10K Training Program, and Yoga. I tried out the Chill Vibes Jog in the outdoor running category this week and loved it! Having a trainer encourage me throughout the run definitely kept me going when I usually would have stopped, which is a huge plus! The app also categorizes the workouts into beginner, intermediate, and advanced by putting green, yellow, or red next to it - so don't feel intimidated, there's a level for everyone! Click here to download the app or search for it in your phone's app store. You can try it for free for 7 days by logging in and then choosing the free 7-day trial.
2. Rx Bars
These bars are the bomb.com - but seriously, they are! The ingredient list on Rx Bars are just about the best you can get. As you can see, the one I had below only has 3 egg whites, 14 peanuts, and 2 dates. I bought mine at Whole Foods a few weeks ago, but I might have to resort to buying them on Amazon because for the past two weeks Whole Foods hasn't had them *insert angry emoji face here*! Amazon carries several of their yummy flavors including the peanut butter flavor, chocolate sea salt, coffee cacao, and they also have a sampler pack which might be nice to try!
As you could tell from my Book Worm Post, I like to read! Books can get pretty expensive though, even when I buy the digital version on my Kindle. This is where BookBub comes in! BookBub will alert you via email to limited-time free & discounted ebooks that match your interests. It's completely free to join, you can read on any device (your Nook, Kindle, Android, etc.), and the books are yours to own! I've already downloaded a FREE book onto my Kindle. Click here to sign up and tell BookBub about your favorite genres and authors so they can tailor your daily email updates to your favorites!
4. Siggi's Yogurt
This is without a doubt my all-time favorite yogurt. Other yogurt brands can have up to 25 grams of sugar per serving, but Siggi's only has 9-11 grams per serving in all of their flavors - that's a huge win for Siggi's (and us)! Siggi's comes in a variety of delicious flavors like raspberry, orange and ginger, peach, pomegranate and passion fruit, mixed berries and acai, and strawberry, amongst others, I buy mine as Whole Foods, but according to Siggi's website you can also find them at places like Acme and Giant. I've been eating the vanilla flavor recently with some blueberries and granola sprinkled on top, which brings me to my last "Friday favorite" for this week...
5. Kind Cinnamon Oat Clusters w/ Flax Seeds
I picked up this granola at the grocery store this past week and I was not disappointed once I tried it with my yogurt (let's be honest, I was eating it out of the bag way before it made into the bowl with my yogurt, oops)! This granola has 5 super grains in it including oats, millet, quinoa, amaranth, and buckwheat making it the perfect snack after a workout. You can eat it plain, over yogurt like I do, or with milk or almond milk. This granola is an excellent source of fiber, low in sodium, and low glycemic (low glycemic diets help maintain blood sugar levels that are already within a normal range). All in all, this granola is a great pick! Just remember to not overdo it with the granola, as it is a higher calorie food.
That's it for my Friday Favorites this week! What are you guys loving this week? Let me know in the comments! Have a fun and safe weekend, friends :)
