An Island, Some Good Finds, and a Bike Ride

Things that are making me happy.

Discovery Bay: We finally made it to this popular part of Lantau Island in Hong Kong and right away noticed how peaceful it is. There are no private cars here and only a limited number of golf carts. Public transport consists of handful of buses that loop through the villages (residence areas) and shopping areas.

D'Decks - two story shopping and restaurant area on the water.

DB Plaza - an open community area great for taking a break while shopping.

Tai Pak Beach - setting up for Dragon Boat Festival

DB North Piazza - another open community area on the north end of Discovery Bay with more shopping and restaurants.

DB Love Lock Promenade -  romantic place to walk or sit and hang a lock with your love.

Some great finds: 

A namesake road.

What I'm wearing: tank and shorts

A place to get acai bowls.

Flavored rice cakes. I've been searching for these for months!

Comfy sports bras. 

Fun foods lately:

After six weeks of no alcohol I had to have a daiquiri.

The best flourless cake.

Green smoothie healthy pop. (spinach, avocado, and banana)

A bike ride that beat the rain with my BFF on National Best Friends Day (or maybe a day late. I'm not sure).

What's making you happy right now?

Fitness Calendar Review + {giveaway}

As a member of a fitness blogger review network, I was sent copies of some upcoming 2014 fitness titles to review. I was super excited to see that they were running related and quickly noted that they would make excellent gifts for runners.

Complete Runner's Day-by Day Calendar Log: This is a year long training journal that includes logs for easy tracking and offers tips for all levels of running. 

The journal pages allow you to record daily mileage, race details, and more. Each month you'll find tips to keep you motivated. Even the most electronically driven runner will enjoy looking back at the stats from the previous years' log.

Runner's High 2014 Day-to-Day Calendar: This is your standard desktop tear-off calendar.

The daily pages offer fun facts, motivational tips, and quirky race day moments. This would look great on a runner's desk or kitchen counter.

I'm happy to announce that the publisher has generously offered to let me host a giveaway of these titles!
