Happy Weekend: 12 Sweet Links

Life

Happy Friday! The photo above is a quote I picked out during my yoga challenge that inspires me! Of course I’m still doing the challenge but I decided that doing it everyday wasn’t necessary for me. 5x a week is enough (with some double days)! The point of the challenge was really to complete 35 classes within 6 weeks and there are still a few more weeks to go.

Hmmm what else? Yesterday I ran 5 miles with my friend. My legs were heavy, but we kept a 9 min mile pace, which isn’t too horrible. I have to admit that sometimes I just need a good run to clear my head. I especially enjoy running with a friend because I’m extremely competitive when it comes to fitness, so I end up pushing myself. Do you prefer to workout by yourself or with a friend?

Oops! I just realized that I have yet to post a yoga challenge recap. I’m sorry! I promise to do one soon. I have lots to share. Wanna know what my biggest accomplishment this past week was? Packing my lunch every single day! I think I saved about $30!

Anyway I have a fun weekend ahead of me — I’ll be babysitting the kids I used to nanny for when I was in college. They’re the sweetest and I cannot wait to bake their favorite banana bread or monster cookies with them!

Now on to the good stuff… my weekly favorites! Here they are:

 

  • BREAKFAST: HOW GOOD DO THESE PANCAKES LOOK?

 

 

  • DREAMY: BLACKBERRY PIE BARS.

 

  • V & GF GOODNESS: THAI INSPIRED SALAD.

 

 

  • SO OBSESSED: CHEWY OATMEAL & REESE’S PB CUP COOKIES.

 

  • TOMATO SEASON: MAKE CREAMY SOUP.

 

  • HUMOR: SORRY, BUT I FIND THIS FUNNY.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

    I love the photo at the top of your post. It states a truth that [I think] most people don’t want to hear. Change is hard, but it is definitely worth any effort you put into it.

    That Side Crow yoga pose is almost exactly the same as a capoeira move called “Queda de Rin”. But in Capoeira when you first start trying this your head can touch the floor as an extra support.

  • Monique thanks so much for linking to my 50 Cal Starbucks Frapp recipe. I love that thing and thanks for spreading some linky love! I love those cookies of Sally’s, the yoga pose, the blueberry bars, Heidi’s site, all your links, love em all!

    Have a great weekend! :)
