A different, but great Friday 5 about the week!

January 31, 2014

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you guys had a great week. Mine was different than usual, but it definitely was a fantastic week.
Image Map

(1) My day off! Monday I used a vacation day. It has been a long month at work getting back to everything from the holidays. We at work have been really busy and I was exhausted. Monday could not have been a better day off. It was sunny, beautiful, and around 60 degrees. I slept until 10:30, had a killer leg work out, and cleaned the apartment with the windows open, county music blasting, and the sun shinning through. Kelly came by after the gym for dinner, too!


It felt great to burn lots of calories.


Delicious post workout meal of a Quest Bar and spinach, feta, cranberry, and walnut salad.


Blasting country music makes cleaning a lot of fun. I know I am late, but I love this song.


The sun was so beautiful and I loved having the windows open. I long for Spring and Summer!

Tuesday, I awoke to the news that Charlotte was expecting snow. What a change! We go from having a beautiful, Spring like day, and then the next thing you know, snow is coming. What a bummer. But guess what?! Tuesday (2) I wore pants that have not fit in over a year and a half! I was so, so happy! Seeing the changes to your body and then feeling it with your clothes is so awesome.


When I got to work, my boss told me he was letting everyone leave at 3PM in order to have plenty of time to get home and try to avoid the snow. I'll take it! I went to the gym when I got off of work. As soon as I walked out of the doors close to 5, it started to snow. I quickly ran across the street to "Earthfare" to grab a couple bottles of wine, because duh! That is the snow survival must have. Plus, Kelly decided to stay with me. What fun is being snowed in alone?! (3) A snowed in sleepover is totally required. 


We had a lot of fun. We had spaghetti squash for dinner, watched the movie "Carrie", got a little tipsy, and talked for hours. She and I see each other everyday and still never run out of things to talk and laugh about. I love my best friend so much. Kels if you're reading this, don't get used to it. :)



Marty was not a huge fan.


I however, thought it was beautiful.

Thankfully, Kelly and I did not stay up too late, because Wednesday, I was only on a one-hour delay for work. The roads were pretty bad though. Charlotte is not built or ready for snow and ice. We rarely ever get it. I could have worked from home, but I had a lot of meetings to attend, especially because I record minutes, and doing that via teleconference is a disaster. So... I called a taxi! Ha! I drive a Mustang Convertible and in no way shape or form is that car meant to drive in weather conditions such as that. Luckily, I only live 2 and a half miles from my work so an $8 taxi ride was worth it. Except that the driver was 20 minutes late, talked on his cell phone my entire drive, and slid twice. It was a heart attack waiting to happen. I made it in one piece though. Barely. 

After work, I was dead tired. I blame it on the wine and snow. I skipped the gym and went home to catch up on "Teen Mom 2" and "Vanderpump Rules". Ha, don't judge me. Marty and I thoroughly enjoyed it.


Yesterday I realized I needed to stock up on my Quest Bars. (4) Did you know there is a new flavor out?! Cookies and creme! I of course had to stock up and buy one. These bars are like crack for clean eaters so I am excited to try the new one today. Have you tried it? Let me know what you think.


For once, (5)I hit the gym in the morning. I am the worst ever when it comes to trying to work out in the morning. I have no energy, I hate my life, and I hate the world. True story. However, after work I am ready to go. But I pushed hard through the freezing cold and got my butt there to train. I go for my doctor's appointment at noon to get my B12 injection and see if I lost any weight this past week! Fingers crossed. Oh and the only reason I trained this morning is because I am meeting my friends after work for half priced wine. Ha!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Yes! Congrats on the pants, or me that's been even better than seeing the pounds sometimes! Enjoy your weekend. The taxi was a great idea!

  2. in my opinion, working out first thing is the best! totally sets your tone for the day and makes you feel badass all the live long day. the key to being able to do that is an early bedtime. no joke, i'm dead asleep by 930pm.

  9. GNC was having a great sale last night, I ordered two more boxes of chocolate chip cookie dough. We're going to get a single of cookies and cream, I'm sure Brandon will love it. And calling a cab, great idea!! although my drive is to far for that

  10. Oh Vanderpump Rules.... the drama is ridiculous but I keep on watching. We had the Snow Storm in Bham start Tuesday and were NOT prepared here. We didn't get stuck out in it, but knew a lot of people who did. No FUN! Hopefully that was our winter storm for the year. Happy Friday, and thanks for linking up!! Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Charleston was shut down for like two days and I swear we got less snow than you. LOL. I am back at work now, haven't been since Monday! Schools closed for 2.5 days...sheesh. I didn't even get to enjoy it with wine due to pregnancy! Anyway, I am looking forward to warmer temps this coming week!

  13. I work out first thing in the mornings because I just get it down and out of the way and feel so accomplished afterwards! If I wait until after work, I find a million excuses as to why I cant. Never a good thing.

    I have yet to try Quest bars but I really want to get in to them. I heard cookie dough is amazing, cant wait to hear what you think about Cookies and Crème!

    I love working out first thing in the morning because I feel so much more energized throughout the rest of the day. I FINALLY started the 30 day shred last week and I forgot how good it feels to workout.

  23. This was really a great week. And it’s good to see that whatever the weather was, you still push yourself to work out hard. That’s the spirit! No wonder you’ve got a great body. How’s your check up, btw? I hope you heard some great results.
