Hey hey and happy Friday!! I love Fridays, even when it’s my weekend to work. HA! And since it’s Friday you know the drill…it’s time for the Friday Five!! If you are new around here then you should know that I reserve Fridays for random things, five random things to be exact. Hence the name, Friday Five. So let’s quit talking about it and get to it!!
ONE. I realize that today is September 7th but I created this graphic to share on social media and I wanted to share it here too! So, hello September!
TWO. I have officially been on the Profile by Sanford Program for a week now and I am proud to say that I have lost 9.2 lbs!! I will have a full blog post on it soon but I just wanted to share one of my favorite ways to drink my protein….with coffee!! I mix up my shake like normal with 8oz of water and then make my coffee like normal and use the shake as creamer. I just keep adding it until it’s all gone! The shake itself is pretty sweet so there is no need for sugar or anything, just black coffee and protein shake. I promise to get a full post up soon with exactly what I’ve been doing and more about the plan in general…stay tuned!
THREE. I finally finished the last book in the Crazy Rich Asians series this week and it was so good!! I still haven’t seen the movie but I plan on doing that soon! As for my next book (or books) I have seen a lot of bloggers reading Colleen Hoover books so I checked one out from the library. I am surprised I have never read any of her books before. She has so many and they all sound good!! I love discovering new (to me) authors! Have you read any Colleen Hoover books??
FOUR. I went to a blogger work day yesterday and I am so glad I did! I got so much done blog-wise. Edited a ton of photos, started several new posts and now I just feel refreshed and ready to jump back in it. I feel like every summer I get into a “slump” and just uninspired but now that fall is here (it’s September, don’t judge me) I am feeling super inspired!! I can’t wait to share some of the posts I started with you!!
FIVE. Earlier this week I blogged about what I keep in my gym bag and talked a tiny bit about my new favorite leggings. I have gotten lots of questions about them since that post so here is a better picture of them! They are super comfy and I love the high waist! They really keep you sucked in and don’t roll down or move at all when you workout. They also double as great lounge pants…HA! Plus the color is perfect for fall!
I hope you have a fantastic Friday and an even better weekend!!!
Do you have any big plans for this weekend??
Anosa Malanga says
I didn’t know about the pumpkin spice shake yet and I am curious about it. Also, I love the color and design of your leggings as well! Looks like its really very comfortable.
Alli Smith says
Love the leggings! I practically live in leggings the entire fall and winter months and I love the color. I’ll also have to check out Colleen Hoover. I don’t think I’ve read any of her books and I just finished a book and need something new to read. I just returned from a week at the beach to celebrate Labor Day so this weekend I will be finishing two posts that are due on Monday.
The blogger work day sounds wonderful and you managed to get a ton of stuff accomplished. Always feels good to get something like that done.
Amber Myers says
Congrats on losing weight. How awesome! I’m sure I’d like that shake. I love pumpkin flavored stuff.
Enjoy your weekend!
Melissa Chapman says
You have some great ideas for this Friday. That is so great that you found that weight loss program that really works, I am going to look into it m.yself
Congrats on loosing some weight. That is something that I really need to work at. It’s hard to find and stick with what works . I think it’s a mind set. Also, I love these leggings.
I just did a book review rounding up all of the Colleen Hoover books I read and oh my gosh! I am obsessed. I’ve just finished three more! LOL!!!!
Terri Steffes says
I am checking into those leggings. Also, I can’t wait to see what you think of the movie! I have a feeling you will love it.
Mary Edwards says
What is blogger work day? If you got that much done, I need to attend a blogger work day!! lol
I never heard of the protein shake in your coffee before. It sounds like a great idea. I love the pumpkin spice McCafe coffee flavor too.
NYC Single Mom says
I hadn’t heard of merging the two together but an interesting notion. I do love my coffee and I do need more protein in my diet so sounds like something I should try.
Marcie W. says
Happy Friday! I am all about comfy leggings and the pair you picked is super cute! A pumpkin spice protein shake seems right up my alley too.
Sue Reddel says
Congrats on the success of your weight loss. Love the leggings, really stylish too.
I need to check out the Colleen Hoover books, they sound great. I want to read the Crazy Rich Asians series but I heard the movie is so much better, and I saw the movie and loved it. I love the color and the lattice look on your leggings. I think its key that they don’t roll down when you are working out. Best of luck with your protein shake diet–the pumpkin spice flavor looks yummy.
I have heard so much about the Crazy Rich Asians books, they are definitely ones I want to read! Congrats on the weight loss!
Kelly Reci says
How much fun is the Crazy Rich Asians book?! I swear, Kevin Kwan is absolutely genius and I totally fell in love with the plotline. Now, off to see the movie!
Terri Beavers says
Oh my, that’s such an accomplishment with the weight loss. I need to shed at least 12 pounds before winter gets here so I need to check this out. The weight is sitting around my waist on my failed back surgery site and causing an increase of pain. I just love that graphic, so glad you shared it.
Kita Bryant says
Oh my word your leggings look so comfy. Pretty sure I would live in those!
Chubskulit Rose says
I love the color of your leggings! I am a legging kind of gal so I am always eyeing on different colors and styles.
Thanks!! They are so perfect for fall!!
Karen Morse says
I always look forward to your Friday posts! I would love to read the Crazy Rich Asians book, people have been praising both the book and the movie! I feel like I’m missing so much! There’s something about the fall that makes people feel inspired!
