Fitness Fridays: 5.24.13

Happy Friday, JNSPers, and hello 3-day weekend! I have a few health/fitness/lifestyle things I want to share with you today:

1. Almond Milk

Have I told you guys how much I LOVE almond milk, yet? Well, let me tell ya, it's the bee's knees. Seriously. I use Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk for everything...in protein shakes, as coffee creamer, on my cereal. (I have only bought Silk, so I can't vouch for the taste of the others. But, I am sure they comparable.)

Before I discovered the nectar of the gods, I was a strict skim milk user, and I will probably never go back to using skim milk on a regular basis. Take a look at the differences between the two:

Almond Milk vs. Skim Milk

I prefer almond milk because it has less calories, less carbs, and more calcium. And, almond milk is thicker than skim milk, so that's a another plus to me.

2. Self Tanner

Like I said yesterday, I look better with a little color. When I can't or don't get a spray tan, I use Jergens Natural Glow moisturizer. But, here's the trick: I mix it with regular lotion, 2 parts self-tanner and 1 part lotion. I think the color turns out more evenly, and I don't get the tell-tale funky self-tanner hands when I do this. WIN!

3. Fox Sports Midwest Girls
