5 on Friday with a little something extra!

Happy Friday!
Before I get into 5 on Friday, I have some potentially exciting things going on right now and I would greatly appreciate it if you could send some good vibes my way! I can't share any of it just yet, but if it all works out then I will let you know.

Thank you and on to the good stuff!

B has been back at work for 2 weeks now and it is glorious! Gone are the summer days where I had to drag myself out of bed to go to school/study/clinical while he slept/hung out at the pool/drank beer.  Now we're both on school schedules and I am loving it!

I joined the Neon Fresh DietBet in the middle of August - lose 4% of your weight in 4 weeks.  The final weigh in is September 16th and I haven't lost anything.  Actually, that's no true.  I've lost the 4 lbs I gained during the first week. (How is that possible, you ask? I blame the period from hell.)  But the thing is, I've been working out and eating right.  Not 100% clean eating, but healthy. Soooo it looks like that's $30 down the toilet and I'm a little pissed. We'll see if I can lose the 5.6 lbs I need to by then but I'm not holding my breath.

Notre Dame plays Michigan this weekend and I'm praying we pull out a win.  There are a lot of teams out there that I don't like (USC, Ohio State, UT) but I think that Michigan tops the list.

Aside from winning, I hope it's a good game to watch. And it should be since we're ranked #14 and they're ranked #17.

Tomorrow marks the first "long run" of my half marathon training.  I say that in quotes because it is only 4 miles, but I've never run that far so I'm a little nervous. Be sure to check back for (Half) Marathon Monday to see how it all goes down. Or if you can't wait that long, follow me on instagram!

My cute, little pregnant friend somehow convinced me to do 2 Pure Barre classes back-to-back this morning.  My legs feel like jello.  Hopefully that is not the case while I'm running tomorrow!
Pretty sure I'll be feeling both tomorrow!

What are you all up to this weekend? Any workout plans? Watching any of the games?


PS - If you somehow haven't seen this yet, take a 37-second break from whatever you're doing.


You're welcome!


  1. I have gotten myself to three miles and I am hoping to get to four soon, but I want to run faster first. I mean less time at the gym for the same mileage would be great, right? Sending good vibes! Have a great weekend!

  2. lol omg! the whole time I was watching that I was thinking about how she set the mood with some candles and a little bottle of alcohol. then as soon as she went up on the door I knew what was coming.

    Good vibes coming your way! And for weight loss, you should try Advocare. you can link up on mondays for a chance to win a cleanse :-)

  3. Loved your blog!!! My week has been crazy to... and um that twerking video.... I was laughing so hard at this earlier!!!! Crystal Michelle -

  4. Here's to hoping Notre Dame wins for you!!!

    I played competitive basketball for about 5 years throughout high school and our team name was the Irish and I swear, we had the exact same mascot/logo as the one above. It brought back a flood of memories haha!
