My Current Digs VII

by Khushboo on September 26, 2011

What I’m about to say will probably make a majorty of you throw your alarm clocks at me but here goes:

I love Monday mornings!  

Monday is the promise of a week’s worth of opportunity. Monday is potential.  And Monday mornings for me always start with a run so the endorphins from that alone guarantee a great day.  Anyways before you hate me any further, let me swiftly move on to other things I am loving lately:

  • Lindt Madagascar: I’ve proclaimed my love for Sea Salt Lindt in the past however I am tempted to say that this variety is almost on par…almost.  It’s 65% cacao with a hint of vanilla and possibly the silkiest chocolate I’ve tasted yet.  Yes, I just equated chocolate to a piece of fabric.

  • Going to the cinema: I have A.D.D when it comes to watching movies: I can only partially watch them.  The rest of my attention is spent looking at my phone.  However the last 2 I saw (Friends with Benefits & Crazy, Stupid, Love) both warranted my full attention: hilarious, romantic, cheesy and the perfect way to zone out- highly recommend both!

  • Kashi GoLean: Cereal rarely makes the cut for breakfast but as a snack, I’m all over it.   Something about this particular cereal reminds me of Lucky Charms sans the marshmallows. That combined with 13g protein per serving?  I’ll take it!

  • Desk-free lunch breaks: In the last year, I don’t think I have taken a single lunch break.  After lunch out on Friday, I may make them more regular: such a fun way to break up the day.  My boss reads this so I probably shouldn’t admit that lunch may or may not have involved cocktails 😉
  • Pyramid runs: these are a form of interval training to maximise cardiovascular efficiency.  After finding my runs not being challenging enough, I’ve spent my last 2 Monday workouts doing these and they hurt so good…and make time fly by!  Comfort zones, you are dead to me! Here’s an intense pyramid run I’ve been going by (adjust speeds as necessary).

  • The Jodhpur by J Brand: When Zara came out with similar equestrian-style cardigans (i.e. suede elbow patches), I bought them in all colors…ok 2, but I love them!  Especially as these are tipped as ‘the next Houlihan’, I need to giddy up and get my hands on a pair.

What’s one thing you are currently digging?

Pyramid runs!? How sweet is that?
I’m digging your sea salt and chocolate too! And salad beasts. Greatest thing about Ohio State: huge salad bars with the absolute best tofu ever


Khushboo Thadani September 27, 2011 at 11:18 am

Ohh I love salad bars- I go to town with the ones @ Whole Food…and apparently so does my wallet ;)!

I really want to try the Lindt Madagascar-sounds so yum! Currently I am digging beetroot and sweet potato especially in salads! 🙂


Khushboo Thadani September 27, 2011 at 11:25 am

Funny you say beetroot- I just told my mom to buy some today !


Sara K September 26, 2011 at 9:43 pm

So THAT’S the Madagascar Lindt you were telling me about! I am grabbing a bar of that asapppp
I have the same mentality about Monday mornings- Monday is the potential for a fresh start, to set goals and hammer right through them 🙂 Monday morning is energy!
And I’m sure you already know how much I love J Brands so don’t need to reiterate!
My current digs:
-Cooking (I bought some avocados to make your pesto-cado!)
-Ginger lemon tea
-Catching up on Gossip Girl


Khushboo Thadani September 27, 2011 at 11:26 am

Ohh so excited you’re trying out the pestocado…let me know how you enjoy it! I hear someone is pregnant in this season of GG (gotta love Twitter), can’t wait to restart it!


Tessa @ Amazing Asset September 26, 2011 at 11:47 pm

I am obsessed with Kashi and especially the Go Lean variety! I also like to have it as a snack, and it helps to keep me full


Jenn from Much to My Delight September 27, 2011 at 3:16 am

Good for you girl! It’s all about perspective, and it sounds like you have a really good attitude. Me–I hate Monday mornings, but before you know it they’re over. That’s my healthy perspective:)

PS: I saw Crazy, Stupid Love this weekend and I loved it too. So cute.


Khushboo Thadani September 27, 2011 at 11:27 am

Hahah sounds pretty healthy to me ! Twenty percent of the work week is done 🙂


Priyanka September 27, 2011 at 6:10 am

I am totally in love with PB and chocolate puffins lately. Just.can’t.get.enough!

mmm lindt madagascar sounds fun!


Tracy's Treats September 27, 2011 at 8:27 am

Ahh, pyramid runs? The bane of my existence. Although I will admit they are a good way to get an intense workout done fast. Props to you for liking them!


Khushboo Thadani September 27, 2011 at 11:27 am

Hahah we have a love/hate relationship…hate them while I’m doing it, LOVE the post-burn!


Errign September 27, 2011 at 4:15 pm

I love Lindt with sea salt too! I’m currently digging pumpkin, smoothies, my new yoga shorts because my bum looks fabulous in them, and my Camelbak water bottle.

I used to be SO anti super loose baggy clothing bc I thought it made me look lumpier than I really am- but I stole my sister’s semi baggy knit sweater to wear with a skirt and I am now in love. I need to go out and purchase my own and then some. This weekend I also attended a concert at the Hollywood Bowl (my fav outdoor venue) and now I’m on a concert high…searching for my next show!


Khushboo Thadani September 29, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Ohh I’m the same, I try to stay off super baggy clothing because of the extra padding it adds…although it’s hard sometimes because they’re just so comfortable!
