Friday Favorites: 11/14/14

Whew. Friday. Thank goodness.

I have the day off from work and I am super excited to have a lunch date with Melanie and her new beautiful baby boy! Of course I am going to bring her one of her favorite treats – Special K bars. Smile And then tonight – the GARTH BROOKS concert! Yup. Super excited.

Here are the things that made me smile this week. . .

–> teaching BODYPUMP + new workout shirt from Reebok (bonus points because it’s a Les Mills tank!)


–> Smoothies + helpers. Luke loves to help me make smoothies in the morning. We make one for Mom, Dad and Lukie. This week I’ve been adding in the new Les Mills Good Protein powder. Full review coming next week – but spoiler alert – everything you’ve heard so far is true, it’s awesome!


–> Girl talk time. Peggy (who lives in Colorado) was randomly in town this week for a convention. Thankfully she had a few hours on Wednesday night for us to sit and chat. SO nice to see her!


–> AdvoCare Meal Replacement Shake mug cake. Have you tried this? So good and so simple. Easy, quick, complete breakfast.


Step 1: put shake mix into mug. add 1/4 cup water.  Step 2: mix.


Step 3: put in microwave for about 75 seconds.


Step 4: serve with a spoonful of almond butter.


–> puppy kisses.


–> long runs on the treadmill.


–> cool down buddy. Seriously he thought the treadmill on the slowest setting was the most fun. And his giggling was hilarious.


*no toddlers were harmed in the taking of these pictures. Winking smile

Help! What do I do? I’m a runner/BODYPUMP-er/sorer than I’ve ever been… from Becky   (psst – I have the same bundles on my AdvoCare site too)

Alright, off to get ready to go. . .

Have a great weekend!!

Linking up with Heather and Claire this week!

  1. I love Garth Brooks! Have a great time 🙂

    I have tried that MRS mug during the second part of the 24 DC and it helped to satisfy nightly chocolate cravings, otherwise I think I prefer it as a shake!

  8. Hi Katie! Thanks for hosting the link-up today. I just LOVED Good Protein and am drinking a shake of it everyday, so I hope you’re enjoying it too. Oh and you had me at Garth Brooks. I’ve wanted to see his concert my entire life. So jelly!

  10. I just read that “Transformation Tuesday” Post, omg I love it! Super funny and super true! And yay for new tanks!! This is going to sound really bad, but it’s so true { well for most people/girls }, New clothing is awesome haha! Especially if you can wear it for a workout or for anything else. Which is what I plan on doing at work today { I work at a sporting goods store }. And then working all weekend haha.

  14. Hi from a new reader. I love love BodyPump! After I canceled my gym membership one of the first things I bought for my home gym was Les Mills Pump DVD workout program. Love the tank and I had no idea there was a LM protein powder.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

      Welcome!! I like doing BP at home too when I practice for class but it just isn’t the same as being in a group class, ya know? But I am glad you are still rocking it at home!!
