The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.


About the Book  The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World teaches young people everything they need to know to change the world, while building a happy, healthy adult life for themselves. It explains how our current social systems work, the challenges young people are inheriting and how millennials can step into our power to create a critical mass conversion to solve them. Everything from politics to spirituality to love relationships to education to sex to economics to mental health is covered. And it includes 50 or so juicy, true life stories from millennials across the country…

Things I'm Loving / Not Loving

I have some things I would like to share with you. Things that I am loving and not loving.

I'm not loving cardio lately. I don't know if I'm in a running funk (for a year and a half!?) or if its because I'm dehydrated (I've cut my alcohol drinking waaaaay back) or its because I'm  fat (I'm trying to eat 70% clean and move more and joining DietBets.) Or if its just too hot to run at a good pace in the sun. But cardio has just been hard. Not. Loving. It.



I bought this Brooks hat in 2011 or 2012 when I first started becoming more conscience about my running gear. It was never really my favorite hat as it never kept my hair in place. I could never tighten up the back tight enough for it to stay on my head if it got windy or a big truck drove by and delivered a gust of wind. I wore it for the last time this week and had to wash it when a wind gust blew it off my head and into a wet gutter. It needed a bath so I threw it in the washer as I have done many times before. This time, it didn't make it out as it should have. It was a small load of laundry too. The bill ripped off the 2 sides. Oh well. #goodbye



But things that I AM loving - I am loving the new Q5 Fitsoks. I am not joking when I say these are now my favorite socks. The are slightly compressive, slightly padded and come in colors that match all of my current running outfits. I highly recommend you get these at your local running store or online here.



I am being meh about my diet but trying to log in calories most days of the week. I have a lot of protein powders in the house and have been trying to drink a shake post-run. I need to chew my way through some of these so I can buy ones that I want to drink. I want to buy more Slap Nutrition products because they are mix easy and So Good. Since I've cut my drinking down (I'm not wineing like as I was) I know my electrolytes are skewed. Plus a few years ago, there was an Endurance Planet episode about magnesium. So, I finally bought some Slap Magnesium and take it an hour or 2 before bed. I sleep better but I don't know if its really working. But I don't think its hurting. So, I guess I'm loving it.



What have you been loving or not loving lately?
