CLIF Mojo Bars
I’m always on the move. And a lot of times that means I don’t have time to sit down for full meals. Before I leave my house in the morning, I stuff my backpack full of snacks. My latest obsession—CLIF Mojo Bars. These little gems are trail mix bars that serve as the perfect midday pick-me-up. You can choose from four different flavors, all of which are made from 70% organic ingredients. My favorite flavor is Peanut Butter Pretzel, although all of them are delicious.
Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town
My latest book on tape is Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town by best-selling author John Krakauer. I was hesitant about starting a book on such a heavy topic, but within the first 5 minutes, I was hooked. Krakauer investigates a series of rapes that took place at the University of Montana to shed light on the widespread epidemic of campus rape across America. He tells the story of several women who were raped in Missoula and follows them through the aftermath, including how they were treated by their friends, family, law enforcement, and the residents of Missoula. This disturbing and harrowing narrative is guaranteed to change the way you look at rape and sexual assault.
Summer Night Workouts
I usually hate exercising any later than 3 p.m. because my motivation and energy drops. By the time 7 p.m. hits, all I want to do is curl up and watch Netflix. My busy schedule this week forced me to head to the pool for an early evening swim workout. Game changer. I forgot how much I love working out on warm summer nights as the sun is setting. It helped me clear my mind after my busy day and was so peaceful.

I’ve mentioned before that I am currently binge-watching Game of Thrones. This “musical” couldn’t have come at a better time. Chris Martin is 100% perfect. Even if you don’t watch Game of Thrones, you’ll still find this entertaining. Check it out here.
