Five on Friday

Friday, February 27, 2015

1. Snow days. Living in Texas, these don't happen often, but when they do, we are thankful. It is almost like God is forcing everyone to slow down. Most people can't get out of the house because the roads are iced over. Instead, we are all forced to relax and catch up on chores.

2. This necklace. I can't wait to wear the heck out of this thing! I think I jinxed it by saying spring was on the horizon. Oops!

3. I am doing another Whole 30 starting March 1st! Who's with me?! I will try to do better with meal planning and posting updates. Last time I was just getting my feet wet, but this time I feel way more prepared. I am allowing string cheese, Greek yogurt, and one protein shake after my morning workout. If I eat eggs after I workout I feel extremely nauseous. My protein shake usually includes ice, protein powder, a banana, almond mild, and sometimes oats. It keeps me full and doesn't upset my stomach like eggs do.

4. I stocked up on new workout clothes from Old Navy. Nothing gets a girl more motivated to workout than new workout clothes! I have been wearing this top non-stop. Chris and I are on week 3 of Jamie Eason's Live Fit Trainer and I'm excited to see my body change once I start my Whole 30 journey again!

5. One more week until Spring Break! Our snow days were like a Spring Break tease, and I'm not complaining! I am looking forward to catching up with my girlfriends and cashing in the spa day that Chris got me for Valentine's Day.


  1. Ahh I just love Old Navy workout clothes--can't beat the price and they are seriously so cute :) Can't wait to hear more about your challenge!!


  2. I'm getting back on the Whole30 wagon this March, too! I've done it twice before - once successfully and once I bailed 10 days in. The one I stuck with had so many positive effects - looking forward to doing another one and reading your posts about your experience!

  3. I love Old Navy workout clothes, but now I'm kind of terrified of the pants! I bought some workout pants last year and just realized (like two days ago) that the pants are completely see-through when I bend over. No wonder I get hit on at the gym. =/ I'm hoping they've just been washed too much and that's why they're see-through, but now I'm afraid to buy anymore pants from there!

  4. that necklace screams spring! and i can't wait to watch the whole 30 again. i've been trying to do better myself!

  5. I stocked up on Old Navy work out gear recently too!! I'm in loooove with their compression leggings...nothing gets me motivated to get to the gym then to wear my new gym clothes haha ;)

  6. So since you're not use to snow days, do you have to make them up at school?
