DFD Gift Guide: For Foodies & Fitness Fanatics!

Guys. It’s December. It’s actually acceptable for me to be listening to Christmas music (even though I’ve been belting to it for weeks) and decorating every nook and cranny in my house (even though I did that before Thanksgiving). I AM SO EXCITED.

I surprisingly managed to do about 80% of my Christmas and Chanukkah shopping done this past weekend (helloooooo Black Friday), but I still have a few more purchases to make. I put together a few of my holiday favorites for you that I’ve either seen around the web this year or actually own and would recommend to anyone. If you have someone on your list that loves spending time in the kitchen and/or at the gym, I’ve got you covered!

Dancing for Donuts | 2015 Holiday Gift Guide

  1. New Balance 620 Capsule Core Running Sneaker – Kicks that are good for working out and super fashionable? Sign. Me. Up.

2. Electric Handheld Milk Frother – Because that Starbucks habit can get rather expensive rather quickly.

3. 4-Blade Vegetable Spiralizer – I use mine allll the time and this one doesn’t take up too much space in the kitchen!

4. The Skinnytaste Cookbook – I’ve been following Gina’s incredible blog for years and gave this cookbook as a gift to several people last year. They’ve given it stellar reviews!

5. Polar Insulated Water Bottle – Swear this keeps water cold for longer. The BEST.

6. Lucy Studio Hatha Legging – Their leggings are my favorite & this print is fabulous!

7. Williams Sonoma Hot-Cocoa Sampler – This stuff is my winter kryptonite.

Happy December & Happy Shopping, y’all!!

Monday Moves.

Gooooooood morning!

After a weekend of school work, and definitely some play, I don’t know how ready I am that it’s Monday again, but alas I have no choice.

I’ve been meaning to check in with you all about my workouts these days, because as much as I am a woman of routine, I’ve been switching it up quite a bit. I try to not do the same cardio combination every single day (like I used to) and have recently branched out into the stairmaster… *GASP*

I’ve been doing 10 minutes of the “calorie burner” after other cardio and it’s been kicking. my. booty.

I’ve also been trying out circuit workouts about once a week when I’m in need of a change. I’ll do 10 minutes of cardio on the elliptical or treadmill and then do circuits three times for a total of 30 minutes (with water breaks).

These are SO great for working different muscles than usual, I can’t tell you how sore I was after the first couple of times I did these.

Also, my new crunches song is Hailee Steinfeld’s new single “Love Myself.” I’m trying so hard to not overplay it buts it’s reallyyyyyy hard. In any case, this song has the perfect tempo for an ab workout. I just do different ab exercises for the whole song and I’m good to go!

Have a great Monday, y’all 🙂
