Friday Faves {Nov. 7, 2014}

This has been a rough week. I had a headache/migraine Sunday through Thursday, I had a cold at the beginning of the week, I couldn't teach some of my fitness classes and I've just been exhausted.

So I'm definitely looking forward to the weekend! I don't have anything major planned. I'll actually have lots of alone time because the BF will be out of town Saturday. I'm planning some at-home spa time, rom com watching, baking and, of course, my usual to-do list (blogging, cleaning, laundry, etc.).

But before we head into the weekend, I want to share some of my current faves! Here's what I'm loving lately.

Happy Friday! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?

The BF and I are taking a little road trip! I'll share the details in my Weekend Recap on Monday!

Today I'm sharing some of my recent fave things. It's pretty random, but fun!

This week has been crazy!

On Tuesday, the Outdoor Fitness Pad at Yanney Park was installed. I've already had people tell me that they've gone out to try the equipment! It makes me so happy.

Then Wednesday was Walk Out on Your Job, a community event that promotes walking during the work day. We had about 500 people gather to go on a 1.5 mile walk, then we provided them with a lunch. I've been working with the Activate Buffalo County planning committee for months to organize this event, so it was awesome to see it come together.

Wednesday was also my graduation from Leadership UNK, a leadership class at work. I've been going to classes since last August. I had to miss the graduation ceremony for Walk Out on Your Job, but it was exciting nonetheless.

Last night, I was rushing around my house doing dishes, doing laundry and cleaning up and I realized that I hadn't taken a moment to celebrate. So I poured myself a glass of champagne and topped it with raspberries, and took some time to be grateful for such a crazy awesome week.

I hope you've had an awesome week as well. Please share your successes with me in the comments below!

Here are some of my recent favorite things...

Happy Friday! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend!

This week has been super weird.

  • Our landlords are renovating our bathroom, and the contractor built a temporary bathroom in our unfinished basement (where a bathroom used to be). I saw a giant red cricket and a snake in our basement Wednesday night, so I've been totally freaked since. How many days can I go without showering?
  • I'm still nursing my plantar fasciitis. I've been diligently wearing my athletic shoes and arch support inserts. But my outfits have been pretty lame. Dress pants with athletic shoes = not a good look. I know it's just shoes, but I've been feeling pretty frumpy all week.
  • I haven't worked out since Tuesday when I taught a morning cycling class and an evening water aerobics class. My doctor said I could still run and teach fitness classes, but I talked to a physical therapist (an acquaintance, not at an appointment) and she said to take a break from physical activity. I think my body needs the rest, but it feels super weird not to workout.
  • I tried to go to a new-to-me yoga class Thursday night with my friend, Molly, who is visiting from out of town, and no one showed up! The instructor just never showed, and there was nothing on her website about a cancelled class. It is so hard to find yoga classes around here! FYI, Molly and I walked down the street and had a glass of wine instead.

So that was my weird week. And here are some of my favorite things right now...

Happy Friday! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?

The BF and I don't have any major plans. I have a few health coaching sessions, I'm planning on stopping by the farmer's market and a yoga class and I'm planning on getting in a long bike ride.

I'm looking forward to a pretty low key weekend.

Today I'm sharing some random favorite things. It's been awhile since I wrote one of these posts. Please share what some of your favorite things are at the moment!

How is it September already?!?! This year is flying by.

I'm super excited it's Friday and it's a holiday weekend. I totally need it. I recently completed Social Academy Bootcamp with BexLife and Danny J, and there are soooooo many things I want to do to improve my blog and my brand.

I've already made a few changes! When you sign up for my newsletter, you now get my favorite smoothies that help me satisfy my sweet cravings without sabotaging my healthy lifestyle! Smoothies are seriously my favorite way to calm a sugar craving! And these recipes are my best ones! Get the recipes here.

I also reformatted my newsletter. It will now feature exclusive content you don't see here on the blog, and it's easier to read and prettier ; )

On Saturday and Sunday, I'll be in Lincoln with the BF and my fam, but on Monday I plan to tackle some other things on my Social Academy to do list. What are your plans for Labor Day weekend?

Because it's Friday, here are a few of my recent faves...

Happy Friday!! And Happy October!!

I love this time of year. Pumpkin spice, boots, colorful tights, cozy sweaters, crunchy leaves, warm and hearty soups. Everything about it is just so comforting.

I stole the image above from Her View From Home (An amazing site for women written by women. I'm a writer for this site! Go like the FB page!). Leslie, who runs the site, said it perfectly, "This is it. This explains it." I agree.

Today I'm sharing some of my favorite things of the moment. Please share some of your favorites! I love to hear what you're into!

Happy Friday!!

I started off my Friday by making an appearance on a local news show The Good Life to talk about my upcoming Kick Your Sugar Cravings Workshop! I get so flustered when I'm on live TV! But I survived.

I'm glad it's Friday, but I have a work-heavy weekend ahead of me. I'm going to have a booth at a local conference, so I'll be talking health coaching all weekend long. It will be fun, but I'm definitely going to miss my usual slow mornings, yoga class and Netflix/Hulu watching. 

I hope you have plans for rest and relaxation this weekend! If not, make sure you can fit it into your weekend schedule!

Before the weekend hits, I wanted to share some of my recent favorite things! This is a totally random compilation, so if you have any random favorite thing make sure to share in the comments!

Today I'm sharing some of my favorite things! Please share some of your faves in the comments below. I love getting ideas from you!

Happy Friday! 

This week has felt long, so I'm definitely looking forward to the weekend. I'm attending an outdoor yoga festival Saturday morning. There's a high of 43° in the forecast, so it will be COLD! 

Other than yoga, I'll be running, recovering from running and doing some work. I'll make sure I make time for relaxation and fun. 

Before we head into the weekend, here are some of my recent favorite things!

It's National Yoga Month! 

I think every month should be yoga month, but apparently September is a month dedicated to raising awareness about the health benefits of yoga and inspiring people to try yoga. I support that!

Throughout the month, I'll definitely be writing more about yoga. Tell me what you want to know! A beginner yoga sequence, tips for creating a home practice, tips for attending your first yoga class, my yoga wish list, what I've learned in yoga teacher training, yoga clothing recommendations. Share in the comments below what you want to know about yoga.

I only have three months left of yoga teacher training, and I'll probably start teaching yoga classes in November! This has been my year of yoga! Which is why I'm excited to share some of my recent yoga faves. This is what I've been loving lately...
