Happy Friday ladies and gents! I am feeling much better today both physically and emotionally. I think on top of being wrapped up in feelings yesterday I started to not feel so well physically and my stomach started acting weird for the rest of the day. I was able to take a 2 hour break from my madness for lunch with Susie at Seasons 52 and that definitely helped things along. Thankfully I woke up well rested this morning and headed out for Friday’s workout at Sweat and now here I am with all you fine friends!
There has been a lot going on this week for me, so let’s dive right into this week’s Five Things Friday:
1. Being Published on Huffington Post
Ok, I promise I will stop talking about this, but I am super excited to be published! When I was younger I wanted to be both an author and a marine biologist simultaneously, so it makes me happy to be able to flex my writing muscles. I definitely still love everything water related, but I don’t think that that is in the cards anytime soon. If you haven’t had a chance to read the article yet, you can find it here.
As I mentioned earlier in the week, I made a trip to Foodease (thanks Susie!) for lunch on Monday and it was a glorious paradise of salads. They also had some prepared foods and made to order sandwiches, but I was quite content with all the salad.
There is also a “quiet room” that is located through a small wine room and this is where I was able to swiftly pay for my salad and then devour it. I love hidden rooms and nooks, so this was great. I felt like I was in a members only room, but I’m pretty sure that I’m the only one who was excited about it.
3. “Chicago” by Frank Sinatra
Yesterday I was listening to Frank Sinatra radio on Pandora because, well, I love him. For all the books and audio I have of Frank, I somehow had missed this song. Maybe I have heard it and not paid much attention to it, but since I am now living in Chicago, I got super excited.
4. Blue Apron
I am planning a full post on Blue Apron, but for now I wanted to add it to this list because I finally had a chance to make all three meals that came and I really enjoyed them all! There is another shipment being delivered today and I am pretty pumped about being able to have all my dinner ingredients and recipes delivered right to my door.
5. Old Navy Workout Pants
Since I have been going to the gym a lot more, I had to get some more workout clothes. My life is hard. I have typically just worn shorts when I work out, but since I now have a 20 min walk to and from work in the winter, I decided to invest in some more tights and capris. I can’t justify the prices at higher end exercise stores, so I typically get my gear from Old Navy, TJ Maxx, or Marshalls. I have also found some cute things at Target but I haven’t tried our their bottoms yet.
Whenever I go to Old Navy there seems to be some kind of sale, so I ended up buying two pairs. I got another black pair because they go with everything (the LBD of exercise) and then I saw the most amazing purple pair of capris that had to be mine. I am on the hunt for more bright green clothes (not neon, more kelly), so if anyone finds any let me know!
So those are some of my favorites this week…what are yours? I hope everyone has an amazing weekend and do not root for the Seahawks (if you are watching) because they made my poor Packers so sad.
