Friday Favorites: 2/20/15

Man, Friday already? This week flew by! And Scott and Luke are in Wisconsin! We are headed off to look at some potential day care options for Luke today – wish us luck. Smile 

Here are my favs from this week: 


Cross Fit.


Last night was my last “Essentials” class. Now I am ready to join the regular classes. And I am SO excited. I am totally loving it.  It is nice to do something completely different to challenge myself. I can’t recommend FitELITE enough – everyone is super nice and very helpful. The only downside – the price! $150 per month is steep! 

BODYPUMP – 3 classes so far this week.


I took a class on Tuesday, taught a interview class on Wednesday and then co-taught another class on Thursday. It’s been fun to meet new participants and instructors who love PUMP as much as I do! 

Whole30. Eating better just makes you feel better, ya know? And I think that eating better and doing the Whole30 {+spark} is making the current transition process to the new job and new town much easier. I am feeling good, sleeping good and that is huge! 

My sisters.


I cannot say enough good things about my sisters. It is SO nice to have them in town. Getting together for dinner, meeting up at the gym, going to my sister’s church {she’s the youth pastor}. All reasons why I made this move! 

SPARK. I have gotten up before 5am every single day this week. And I am beat.


Thank goodness for spark. I don’t know what I would do without it. 

My new job. Last day of orientation today!


I am really looking forward to start seeing patients next week. My co-workers and support staff have all been super nice and welcoming. 

Running4Cupcakes – today is my 4th anniversary of starting R4C.


Last year I reflected on what a journey blogging has been and this year those words still ring true. {Check it out here} Thank you all so very much for reading. Cheers to another year! 

Whew – now on to the weekend!! I am going to see Pippin with my sisters tomorrow then spend some time hanging out at home with my boys. 

Hope you have a great one! Whatcha up to??

Linking up with Friday fun with both Heather and Clare!

  6. HB to your blog! I think mine turned 4 this week too….I always forget about mentioning it —whoopsies!

    150$/month is so crazy expensive! I can’t believe CF places can get away with it….but I’m so glad you love it!!

      Thanks Annette – and that is SO cool that we started our blogs at about the same time. Now, we just need to get together some time. πŸ™‚ And I cannot believe that CF is SO expensive. I knew it was spendy, so I expected the high price tag when I called to find out about price, but still – craziness.

  7. Happy blog birthday!! How exciting!

    I’m totally with you when it comes to Spark. I gave up soda for lent (plus I need to just give it up in general) and it’s been a lifesaver from the caffeine withdrawal headaches!

  8. Happy blogiversary! I’ve never heard of spark but it must be something good if it can get you going every morning at 5 am! So early…

      Thanks Emma. Spark is an awesome drink from AdvoCare that gives me tons more energy than the coffee and pop I used to drink. And way healthier with vitamins and minerals in it!

  9. Happy anniversary!!! Four years is such a huge accomplishment! Congrats!

  15. Hi Katie! I love that you can co teach body pump. I teach a similar class called Group Power and we rarely get to co teach but when we do it is so fun and brings so much more energy. Man am I sore!

    Congrats on your 4 year!
