Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday! It's another rainy one here but I've got an exciting weekend (well, Saturday) so I'm not going to let it get me down. PLUS, I've got a busy day at work so that always makes the day go by faster!

Time for some more Friday Favorites! Here are five things I'm totally digging this week!
Linking up with Fitting It All In & Life in Leggings today!

1. Half relay this weekend! I alluded to it yesterday but my boss & I are running the Bristol Half & Half relay tomorrow! I'm pretty stoked to run a relay--something I can knock off my bucket list. Our goal tomorrow is at MINIMUM place top 5 in the female relay category but we're both SUPER competitive so in reality, we want to win. ha. I think if we're smart, we can totally do it. My leg tomorrow is 7 miles and I'd like to keep my pace somewhere between 7:50-7:55. I ran an easy 4 miles today and an easy 2 yesterday so I've tried to keep my mileage down this week. Here's to hoping it pays off!

2. Gym time this week. It's been a weird week and sometimes it's nice to go in the gym, get a good workout in, and get away from the world for a while.  You know?

3. I'm officially half way through the 10 day cleanse portion of ADVOCARE! So far, so good. The first two days I felt a little off and I think it's because I wasn't getting in quite enough water... but yesterday and today? I feel AMAZING. My energy level is WAY up, I feel good, and I'm pretty sure I could conquer the world this morning... if it wasn't raining outside. ;)

4. This arm routine. I do this on the regular and have seen awesome results. It's quick, challenging, and effective--exactly how I like my weight workouts. Funny I can run all day but when it comes to weights, I want to be in and out as soon as possible. Try it next time you're in the gym!


5. And finally, my last Friday favorite is the fact that I woke up this morning and when I headed out the door to the gym at 6:30am, it was SEVENTY degrees. If that's not enough to make you jump for joy, I don't know what is. We're almost there guys--it's ALMOST summer!

Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back on Monday with a full recap of my half relay!



  1. This is great! I found you through Friday Favorites Link up. When you do arm exercises, how often do you increase the weight, and by how much? I've been starting to increase the weight, but currently only possess 5 lbs and then I have a set of weights that I can interchange on the dumbbell (does that make sense?). Thank you and hope the weather is nice tomorrow.

    1. thanks for the comment! and when it comes to arm exercises, i typically go up in weight when it starts feeling too easy. when you get done with this one, your arms should definitely be shaking a little bit. :) it's a tough one but SOOOO effective! and it's a great one to do when you don't have a lot of equipment at your disposal. hope this helps!! :)

  2. Your arms are bangin. Good luck this weekend!! xoxo
