We hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! Unfiltered Adventure had a weekend full of pool & lake time, great food, and lots of good company. What more can you ask for out of a three day weekend?
What's that you say? You want to get to know us better? I'm glad you asked because we are trying a new post this week: Currently. Currently will focus on a few questions that each Adventurer gets to answer. We hope this allows you to get to know us a little better...because we are pretty cool if you ask me!
So, here goes...
What are you currently reading?
Andrea - I haven't read a book in so long I can't even remember what it was. I prefer movies. I do like to read up on different blogs, most specifically Unfiltered Adventure. It's both entertaining and educational.
Kristi - I haven't finished a book in quite some time, which is sad. I tend to read more in the winter even though all the new TV shows are on!
Leslie - The Swans of Fifth Avenue. It is about Truman Capote and his relationships with the socialites of the mid-50s. I must admit that it is not my favorite and I have had trouble finishing it. It would be a good read by a pool relaxing…turns out that I have been running on swans instead of reading about them!
Stephanie – The Complete Jack The Ripper. It’s about the murders and the suspects. Carla gave me this book for Christmas after our London trip/Jack the Ripper tour but I have struggled to get through this book and have been reading on it all year. However, I was inspired by this post to finish it so last night I read for 30 minutes and have a goal to finish it this month!
What are currently watching?
Andrea - Odd Mom Out, I'm addicted to it. So witty, I can't get enough of it.
Kristi - Way too much reality TV due to summertime. Housewives, Kardashians, Below Deck, Bachelor in Paradise, etc. I need to cut the cable!! But, I did recently start Making a Murderer so hopefully that won't kill as many brain cells.
Leslie - Summer TV is not my favorite, so I am very excited for fall TV to come back! I do have one summer fave-Mistresses…and this season has been fun!
Stephanie – I just finished up Stranger Things Season 1 on Netflix and on cable Mistresses just wrapped up its season with a bombshell. Is Karen dead or not and who is this imposter?!!?
What are you currently eating?
Andrea - I'm on a seafood diet. Basically I see food and I eat it. I also get Blue Apron & I love it. I try so many different dishes that I never would have thought to cook. It keeps me from getting into the rut of the same dinners every week.
Kristi - Evolve Paleo Chef. I order ready made lunches and dinners every week from here. The convenience, variety, and deliciousness is WAY better than the Wheat Thins and ramen noodles I used to eat every night!
Leslie - Blue Apron makes my life so much easier. Having 3 meals per week delivered to my door helps to get me out of a rut and it is so easy!
Stephanie – All year round I make big meals on Sunday or Monday that I can eat on for the entire week. It’s usually chicken and vegetables but it’s getting to be soup/chili weather and me and my crockpot are ready!
How are you currently working out?
Andrea - indoor cycling, HIIT, strength training, interval cardio and jogging. I like to do a little of everything to keep me from getting bored!
Kristi - Iron Tribe. I'm quite addicted to the Olympic lifting and HIIT style combo workouts. Killer workouts in 45 minutes - priceless! I should probably start run training for the Tough Mudder but doubt that will happen - I'm going to rely on my brute strength.
Leslie - All the things…running, lifting, HIIT, and volleyball. Oh and getting ready for Tough Mudder!
Stephanie – This past month or so I started doing the Tough Mudder training that is on their website. It’s combination of both strength training and endurance. Check it out: https://toughmudder.com/physical-training
Hope this gives you a little insight to the awesomeness we exude. Cheers!
We'd love to hear about your current favorites in the comments!
