Friday Favorites: 9/5/14

woo hoo for Friday!! I am so excited. Smile

why do short weeks seem to take so long? Shouldn’t they go by faster?

Anyway, here’s a few things that made me smile this week.. . . feel free to play along in the comments or on your blog (and link up!)

#1. Fro yo date.


#2. Getting up early to knock out BODYPUMP.


I actually love practicing the new releases of BP and I am working on 91 right now. It is super easy to roll out of bed and head to the basement and get in a good workout even before my day really starts. And thank goodness for spark afterwards to make me feel less like a zombie after getting up so early. . .

#3. This AdvoBar.


Ummmm you guys – this bar is amazing. Delicious. Great flavor. Designed by Drew Brees (so cool!). And I love that it has 12 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. Great way to start my day.

#4. Just what I needed after work.


Oh man, after a hard day, pushing my 35 pound turkey around was just the stress reliever that was needed. And that is why I love running. It helps me to de-stress and work through what’s on my mind. Bonus points that Luke gets to come with and get some fresh air too.  . .

#5. Football.


I am typing this post up while watching Packers v. Seahawks. Happiness is watching Aaron Rodgers play. #fact #gopackgo

#6. This face.


She likes to snuggle on the bed while we are getting ready in the morning. And it is so hard to not get back in bed with her!

I am really looking forward to this weekend. . . not too much on the agenda. Farmer’s Market, Scott’s family is coming for lunch, long run on Saturday, going through some boxes that are still leftover from our move (6+ months ago!), and relaxing with the family.

What made you smile this week? What are you up to this weekend??


Spreading the link love by linking up with Heather and Claire again this week.

      I know!! But the silver lining is that they were playing great for the first half so I am thinking good thoughts for this season. 🙂

  4. Darn Packers. I have Aaron Rogers on my fantasy football team…I also had Seahawks D, so it was an interesting night. lol! Your stroller runs are super impressive! I can barely push myself to run, much less adding a kiddo and stroller.

    I used to love teaching body pump. Wow I can’t believe they are on release 91. I got trained on release 69. That flavor of quest bar is so yummy. Ever try it in the microwave?

  6. I’m actually excited about football this year. Weird, because my life has been consumed in NBA for the past 7 years. Also, I love that you teach BODYPUMP! I’m hoping to find a gym that offers it near me soon. Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. do you get the BP bar and plates when you become an instructor? It would be great if that was part of the fee associated with the certification!
