It’s been a busy week around here, so I am definitely thankful the weekend is here. I can’t wait for the sunny and 70 degree weather that will be here this weekend too. The more sunshine the better!
Because it’s Friday, it’s time for a little Five Things Friday action. I have absolutely LOVED (and will continue to love) participating in this little link up that is hosted by Clare from Fitting It All In. Such a perfect wrap up of the week 🙂 Thanks for hosting and for coming up with such a great idea, Clare!
Five Things I Ate:
This delicious power bowl containing: Broccoli slaw, spinach, roasted cauliflower, roasted broccoli, roasted zucchini, roasted sweet potato, spinach, and hummus. So good!
This green smoothie full of matcha powder. I was so excited to have a big GREEN smoothie for breakfast yesterday–I put in some avocado for the first time, lots of spinach and matcha…I did NOT realize the strong flavor the matcha would have and I think I put too much in…at least for the first time. I finished the smoothie, but I definitely need to tweak the flavor. Oops!
The Lean Green Bean’s Health Breakfast Bars. I actually made these a couple of months ago and froze them, so this week I pulled them out of the freezer for Brian to eat for breakfast, and after my 10 mile run on Wednesday, I was pretty hungry with a craving for something starchy and sweet…so I had one of these bad boys! Delicious! Definitely check out the recipe.
Kevita probiotic drink. Gotta get my hands on more!
Macadamia nuts. I LOVE them! I love the crunch, the round shape, the flavor, and the fact that they are so cute!
HIT (High Intensity Training Class)
10 mile run (woo for double digits!)
Five Things Making Me Happy:
My Martha Stewart Collection Sistema Lunch Containers! I know, totally dorky, but I use these containers just about every. single. day. They are functional, cute, and just the right size! If you pack salads for lunch I highly recommend picking up a couple for yourself 🙂
Warm weather! Two weeks in a row, my running group was able to wear shorts. Woo!
Double digit miles…I can’t believe it has been 6 months since my running mileage was in the double digits. I am so thankful the run felt great and my legs were strong and did not get super sore the next day.
Friend dates! Can’t wait to see some girlfriends this weekend 🙂
Meal ideas from all of you!! On Wednesday, I explained that I was in a bit of a food rut and luckily you all had plenty of creative juices flowing and gave me wonderful meal ideas! Here are some of the ideas:
