Random Thoughts = Thinking Out Loud

Happy Thursday Peeps! We are having a little taste of Spring this first week of March! I am so ready for it too. I am kind of tired of being cold. Anyway…..

Still going Whole30 strong and it has seriously made me reevaluate certain foods. Take dates for instance. I liked them before whole30 but I’m kind of in love with them now. They seriously help with those sugar cravings. I’ve also discovered that they are great to snack on during long runs! A natural energy boost instead of using chews or gels.


Drinking black coffee hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be. I do still miss my creamer but it’s not terrible. I’ve actually discovered that black coffee + a splash of unsweetened vanilla coconut milk + Vitamix = frothy deliciousness. Okay I’m not gonna lie it’s not as good as my french vanilla creamer but it sure is healthier, so I’m going to deal. 



I’ve got several songs I’m into at the moment and here is one of them…

On Sunday I had a few hours to myself and I noticed that The Fault in Our Stars was coming on so I thought it would be the perfect time to watch it. I’ve heard so many talking about the book, but I chose not to read it because I knew it was sad, and I usually like my reading to be a little more fun/up lifting. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and now I want to visit Amsterdam! 

The Fault in our Stars

Are there any Homeland fans out there?? We have started binge watching it over here ever since we got all caught up on Blacklist and State of Affairs! 


I am linking up with Amanda today because it’s been way too long since my last Thinking Out Loud post! 



Tell me something random that’s going on in your life this week!
