Archives for category: Friday Fab Five

Hello Lovelies!

Here are the five things I’m loving this week:

1. Compression tights.  I have a new pair (my first ever) that has pockets for ice packs. They are amazing and my legs feel amazingly refreshed after wearing them post run.  Plus they have pockets for ice/heat packs–said packs come with the tights.  Want to check them out?  Check here!

2. Push ups.  My Fit 45 instructor, Lindsay, challenged the class participants to do 50 push ups a day, every day for the month of July.  I have kept up, doing 50 a day every day…and the changes in my strength are HUGE.  I can now do 30 push ups straight.  When I started on July 1, I could barely do 5.

3. In five weeks I will be waking up in California, in Disneyland.  Squee!

4. Vacation time.  Outside of my California trip at the end of August, i have recently booked two extra days off–including my birthday.  I’m SO looking forward to these bonus days off.

5. Saw this on Craig Ferguson’s twitter feed and it made me laugh for about 10 minutes.

Putin on a Ritz…lol

Happy Friday Ya’ll!




 Today’s Friday Fab Five is themed on Five fun things I’m going to do this weekend.

1. Sleep.  I didn’t sleep at all last night.  My body was sore from my lunch workout, including a flaring up of my plantar fasciitis and I just couldn’t relax—I had energy to burn. So tonight and tomorrow night, I’m making it a goal to get some high quality sleep.

2. Grand Beach Sun Run 10K Road Race.  I’m running a race on Sunday….at the beach….including the last mile being in the sand..eek.  I’m trying to think positive, that it will be a fun challenge…oh and I’m getting to go to a friend of a friend’s cabin for a pancake breakfast after the run—if that doesn’t motivate, what will?

3. Speaking of breakfast, tomorrow I’m making myself bacon and eggs—I haven’t had bacon in a while and I’ve been craving it bad!

4. Face time/Phone date with my dear friend D from Australia.  Looking forward to this chat and seeing how much my niece has grown since our first face time date when I got to meet the little ragamuffin.

5. Sunday night TV extravaganza.  It’s Sunday Night Squee—aka True Blood night with my friends, Dexter is on AND the Newsroom starts up.  Good times on the tube—what a perfect way to ice down my battered legs and generally chill out then watch three great tv shows.

What five things are you loving today?

Much luv,
