Friday Five – Lovin’/Not Lovin’

Happy Friday everyone!!

Linking up once again with Mar, Courtney & Cynthia — the theme this week is “Things about me.” Since I just shared a day in my life a couple of days ago, I thought I’d take a little liberty with this theme and share a few things I’m lovin’/not lovin’ right now.



This quick post-gym pic doesn’t do it justice

Athleta Strength Hoodie — One of my favorite Christmas gifts is this hoodie from Athleta. It is my go-to cover-up to go to and from the gym. So warm without the bulk!

TRX Workouts — Trainer Stacy added some TRX to the mix last week and I couldn’t be happier.

Anatomy for Runners —

(Affiliate link alert!) I ordered this book ages ago after learning about it from Amanda, but have only recently pulled it off the shelf to read. One more tool in my injury-prevention box!

Not Lovin’

Plague/virus/cold invasion — My husband and oldest son went down earlier this week (actually J’s been sick since last Friday). And this morning I woke up not feeling so hot myself…to which my youngest looked at me over breakfast this morning and declare “So I’m the only one left!” (So much for sympathy, right?)

Late Practices & Early Games — Recently the aforementioned sympathetic son’s hockey schedule has shifted into an ugly pattern of late evening practices (not coming off the ice until 8:30PM) and crack of dawn weekend games. This Sunday he’ll be on the ice at 6:20AM…6:20 on a Sunday people…in a cold rink…ugh!

What are you lovin’ or not lovin’ right now?





  1. Ugh, this virus that has been going on lately is THE worst! I hope your family gets better soon! I’m just getting back to being healthy myself!

  3. I think I love everything from Athleta. If they open a store any closer to me I’ll go broke. Boo to the virus. It seems to be really bad this year. Hope you all feel better!

  4. Ugh on the plague, and the early hockey games. I don’t mind getting up early for a run, but it’s painful to get up early to spectate in an ice rink!

  5. I hope everyone gets well soon! Loving: I found these sweet potato biscuits in the freezer section. The main ingredient is sweet potatoes (not flour). They are so delicious! Not Loving: The number on the scale.

  6. Lovin: This warmer weather we are experiencing, seeing the sun for the first time in weeks, getting my move on and avocados
    Not Lovin: The number on the scale, increased fatigue, increased muscle tension and weakness and all the blood work I am undergoing to figure this all out…ugh!

  7. boo to late night and early morning practices. boo indeed! i think when i was in high school, my parents were so happy when i was able to drive myself places for this reason! i hope you aren’t getting sick!!

  8. How to keep the plague / cold / virus at bay? 1 teaspoon powdered cinnamon mixed with 1 tablespoon natural honey – mix to form a paste. Put 1/3rd of the paste in a cup, mix in hot water. Drink 3 times a day.
