It’s been a while since I did a Loving Lately post and well, there is so much I am loving lately. October took a while to really settle in and bring with it the cool, crisp temps I have been longing for. Along with the autumn air came so many of my favorite things.
October Loving Lately
Long cool runs and hot baths
The cooler air has finally given me a renewed excitement in running that had been missing all summer. Long weekend runs are back in full swing. My favorite post long run ritual is the hot epsom salt baths. Best way to recover.
Fall nail colors
While I do love the summer corals and pinks, I always get excited for the deep reds and richer colors of fall nails. I am currently wearing this mauve purple color and loving it. (photo source)
Slow Cooker Soups and meals
I am loving that my crock pot has come back out to take center stage on my counter top. Soup and Chili season have finally arrived. Current faves Pumpkin chipotle Black Bean soup and White Bean Quinoa chili.
Warm coffee on a cool day
I love waking up on a cool morning and being the first one downstairs into the kitchen. The sound of the warm coffee dripping into my mug along with the delicious aroma wafting my way, gets me in my “I am going to kick ass today” mode. How cute are the mugs with the little sweaters?
Now that the temps have dropped, I have a renewed love for hot yoga class. The warmth of the class allows me to get a much better stretch. Perfect for all of those long run recovery days.
Tell me: Has your slow cooker come out yet? Do you change your workouts with the seasons? What are you loving lately?
