Five Things Friday 3.28.2014

Happy last Friday of March!

I am excited that next month is April, because that is my birth month :) but I also can’t believe that it is already April…my how time is flying by.

Relatively speaking, Brian and I have a pretty low key weekend and I am thankful for that.  Just random chores, errands and weekend things and a date night in on Saturday.  I can’t wait!

Time for a little Five Things Friday hosted by Fitting it all In.

Five Things I Ate:

  •  Collard wraps for lunch…so good!

  •  Sweet potato “nachos” aka sliced and baked sweet potato topped with a TON of veggies, guac and salmon.

  • Back to my regular breakfast frittata, fruit and coconut butter.  Pretty basic, but really delicious.

Five Things Making Me Happy:

This video is so inspiring, and I literally felt like she was talking to ME during the entire video.  Definitely worth the 18 minutes :)

Dr. Libby is one of the people I look up to the most when it comes to nutrition and health professionals.  I first learned about her while I was working on a cruise line in New Zealand, and I read her book Accidentally Overweight.  If you are into women’s health, science, and nutrition the book needs to be added to your list NOW.

  • Indianapolis Blog Love

Last week, Maria Romaine wrote a guest post for me about How to Stay Healthy at Work and this week Sara from Solid Gold Eats included me in a chili recipe roundup.  To top it all off, today I am meeting the fabulous Sarah from Creating a Better Tomorrow for lunch!  All three of these wonderful women are bloggers in the Indianapolis area :)

Love my city!

  • I feel so honored that I was able to work with Wellpoint on their exercise break video for the Partnership for a Healthier America.  Being in this video is definitely making me happy!

  • Date night in with Brian on Saturday (we are cooking up a yummy meal and watching a movie)
  • The Fire Starter Sessions.  Jen from Peanut Butter Runner has talked about this book so many times.  I can’t wait to read it!
  • and a 6th just for fun!!! **Reminder that Rita’s Blog School enrollment starts on Monday.  E-mail me if you have questions :)

  1. Can’t wait to see you for lunch!! I am excited to catch up – we should get together for a mid day walk once it is nicer out!

  3. I just wanted to thank you so much for linking to the TedX talk by Libby Weaver — I have *needed* the information she provides for the past 2 years and can’t wait to dig into her books. Thank you!

      Maria, I am so glad you read this post and found Libby as helpful and inspiring as I have :) I have only read Accidentally Overweight, but Rushing Woman’s Syndrome has been on my list for quite some time. Not sure where you live, but Dr. Libby will be in NYC in May if you want to see her in person :)

  4. Hope you and Sara had a wonderful lunch date. So jealous the two of you were able to meet up – however, I’m glad you’ve formed such a lovely friendship through blogging :) Heading to check out a few links you shared.
