Friday Favorites

My sister stayed up until midnight last night to be the 1,000 follower. Thanks for helping her out:)  She was SO excited to tell me this morning.  Send her warm wishes on her HALF-MARATHON tomorrow.  I was supposed to run it with her but now I get to be the CHEERING section.  I can't wait to be the spectator that I LOVE at races.  Better believe I will be going crazy cheering on people and encouraging them BIG TIME!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Workout this morning was 30 minutes on the elliptical with no tension......um, yeah let's not talk about it.  I did have a stellar weights session and it may just be in my mind but my upper body is already feeling STRONGER from all of this weight training:)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Time for my FAVORITE THINGS FRIDAY!!!

1. Nothing sounded good for breakfast this morning besides dipping my fingers (yes, two fingers at a time to allow more surface area) straight into the jar.  Hows that for a calorie dense breakfast.  No dishes and one satisfied belly.

2.  Billy's new rocking Under Armour and Brooks running gear (I called it an outfit and he made me change it to gear)

IMG 4744

Um......I have never been more attracted to him.

3.  Electo Therapy ha it really feels tickily and it makes me giggle and my muscles do the wave, maybe I will film a movie of it!  Okay, the real Friday Favorite in this picture is the spicy nacho cheese flavored popcorn.

Healthy- No

Full of ingredients I can't pronounce- Yes

Makes me not so mad that I can't run right now- Yes

IMG 4746

Off to get some fro-yo with my girls!!! Utah version of happy hour after work.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.  What are some of your FAVORITE THINGS today?!?!

2.  What did you have for breakfast today?

3.  Anyone racing this weekend?  If you have a second will you wish my sister good luck....she is kind of nervous and any encouragement and words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated!

Good luck to sister! BTW - just started reading your blog today! Found it through another running blog, but not sure which - I've started to read so many!

Some of my favorite things today...
1. My breakfast - Bagel w/brummel & brown + TJ's Apple Cranberry Butter. Yum.

2. Kicking *ss at a 6:30 AM runners bootcamp even though I was on my first day of my period AND had been out late last night.

3. Spring is here! I'm wearing cute striped yellow Payless flats! New spring clothes from Old Navy! And my necklace shaped like a high heel, w/diamonds on it!

4. I guess I also favorite exclamation points today, given how many I used. =)

Breakfast was mentioned above - bagel, plus pre-workout was ~half a grapefruit + 1/2 ounce of pistachios. I cannot believe how buttery pistachios are. Yum.

No race this weekend, but 9 mile run in prep for 10 mile Cherry Blossom run in two weeks!

I did electro therapy in high school when I messed up both knees playing water polo. It helped a lot and I managed to finish the season but I agree that it feels SO WEIRD!!

I made the boyfriend go get fro-yo with me earlier today. DELISH!!

Favorite thing today: fresh hair cut and pretty weather! (I know that's 2)

GOOD LUCK TO YOUR SISTER!!!!

The best part of my day was having a totally spontaneous Friday night spent with my roommate. We walked around the beautiful Inner Harbor in Baltimore and stuffed our faces with chips & salsa at a mexican bar. Completely unplanned, nothing crazy, but everything I needed after a hard week at work! :)

Good luck, sister! I also have a race tomorrow (4 miles). I hope you have fun!

So my acupuncturist uses electric stim hooked up to needles in my butt and legs. It's an even more bizarre sensation when it is inside your skin.

How awesome that you are doing weight training! I know you have resisted... just think about how totally strong you are going to get :)

Breakfast was gluten-free banana blueberry pancakes w/ maple syrup... and they were probably my favorite thing today. Wait, we went to some pretty awesome parent/teacher conferences today... it is always nice to hear good things about your kids :)

You are doing such a good job of letting that leg heal... good girl!
