On Fridays We Link Up, get DIRRTTY, drank all the kale, and pop almonds!

FRIDAY, FRIDAY!!! This week has gone on far too long and now we just have to make it to the magic hour of 5pm. These first three weeks of school have flowed into one another with student appointment after student appointment. There’s no time to tidy my desk, finish my coffee, or even get through all the emails that are stuffed into my inbox. Poor little inbox.

Still it’s Friday and that’s something to celebrate. Let’s break out the bubbly and begin our weekend shenaningins with Amanda of Meet Me At the Barre and her FRIDAY FAVORITES!

1)PBS
I cannot get enough of PBS. I’m so excited for Downton Abbey to return this January. Woo Woo! I’m mid way through the Robin Williams tribute and so far – lbg approved. Last Tango at Halifax was wonderful!!! Anyways, watch some PBS. They have an app for your iPad and I promise you it will be worth it. Hashtag Nerd for life.

2)ANY JUICE WITH KALE
kale
Green juice with kale is just part of my jam. When I drink this ish my body gets all happy. I feel like it’s saying thanks buddy, I feel refreshed. Get yourself (even just a small cup) and I promise you will be feeling fabulous just like Bey.

3)OLAY REGENERIST FACE CREAM

Loving this face cream!!!! Sentimental note, this was my Grandma’s face cream and she had a unopened jar when my Mom was going through her stuff so I said I’d take it. It’s silly but it makes me think of her as I use this. So who knows, I do think my skin looks great but maybe some of it is just Grandma Love.

4)MY BED
I’ve been exhausted this week so I think this one is self explanatory.

5) ALMONDS
Snacks for healthy people. Although I’m torn because almonds need a LOT of water to grow and we’re in a drought. DAMN. But I bought them at the farmers market so 100% of my funds went directly to the farmer….I dunno…eats some more almonds. Also ladies, almonds have calcium. Holla. Lord knows I need to preserve all my inches ( 5 feet nada) and osteoporosis shrinks a lady. Getting my calcium with these bad boys.

Ok, we’ve dished about our favorites. Let’s get to the dirty, like Christina Aguilera says, and talk about the fitness.
DIRTY

Aubrey from ALG Uninterrupted is here to bring us back to fit with her lovely link up.

FITNESS FRIDAY

This week was not ideal but a HELLUVA lot better than last week.
*WATER – I drank more water but still am not drinking enough H20. Hydration gotta keep improving.
*WORKOUTS (Friday – Friday) – I exceeded my goal of 140 minutes of exercise per week but did not work out for 20 min a day. Saturday, I did my 7 miles (70 min). Sunday, I hit up a bar method class (60 min). Monday, I ran another 3.3 miles (40 min). The rest of the week was rough. I worked from 8:30 – 7:30pm yesterday. I was also having lady time so that pretty much makes me want to be a slug. Tonight, I’m going out but I have plans for another long run on Saturday and some kind of working out on Sunday before seeing the SF Giants play.
*EATING LESS WHEAT – I’ve been doing pretty well at this one. I’m hoping next week will be even better and I feel like my veggies and fruit intake is looking good. Holla!
*WEIGHT – Down a little over 4 lbs. Woo Woo! I was in the top of my comfortable range last Friday so feeling better about this loss. Butttttt some of that was vacay and just lady time bloat. I know super sexy, right?

Alright, my interweb homies, I’ve got to make it through the rest of Friday and kick some ass. Lunch time Mexicana style is making me feel super sleepy though. Send your fav sleepy Mexican some good energy, will ya šŸ˜‰

  1. yous doin awesome, lady! i have cut down carbs for a long time but damn, there are times i want to eat all the carbs. so instead, i just restrict it – bfast and sometimes lunch. no carbs for dinner. and the carbs isn’t a lot; maybe half of a whole wheat tortilla or one piece of whole wheat bread.
