Happy Thursday! How’s your week going? Did you enter yesterday’s giveaway? I’ll announce a winner next Wednesday.

This week’s post has an accidental workout and coffee theme. These are two things that I feel are essential in life. Turns out coffee may actually benefit your workout.

Exhibit A: I was quoted in this Self article on the perks (no pun intended) of a pre-workout coffee. Okay, pun maybe intended.

Exhibit B: More talking about workout-boosting foods. This Prevention article also features my colleague and friend, Linzy Unger. Love that!

Speaking of things that add a zing to your workout, I bought some colorful leggings, finally, over Memorial Day. I’d resisted for so long, but the pants-envy I’d been experiencing finally wore me down. I feel a bit conspicuous in them, but they’re fun. I feel like cute workout gear puts an extra spring in your step.

I’ve got a lot of fun stuff coming up this summer, including some new writing projects. I’ll be talking a lot about nutrition, health, and fitness. I’d love to hear what things you’re really digging right now, or things you have questions about.

Any nutrition or fitness questions you’d love to see answered in an article? Fitness and food stuff you’re loving?

This post has been part of another Running with Spoons Thinking Out Loud link party, where randomness is the name of the game. Thanks to Amanda for hosting.
