Five on Friday 3.4.16

Joining in with April, Christina, Natasha, and Darci for Five on Friday today!

ONE

Since I officially booked our engagement pictures with Tessa (so excited!), it’s time to get serious about a wedding budget. I am typically a spreadsheet type of gal, but this option is just so much prettier…also, a little overwhelming.

TWO

I may be late to this train, but I have absolutely fallen in love with Biscoff cookie spread. Please tell me you’ve tried it. If not, you’re missing out. Although I’d love to just scoop some out and eat it, it’s not nearly as satisfying as using it as a topping. Same cookie taste, more food. I’ve used it on top of protein pancakes, popcorn, and in yogurt. My favorite combo is definitely the yogurt though. Holy goodness, and it’s only 170 calories (5.5f, 17.5c, 12.5p). Perfection.

THREE

On repeat this week: Aloe Blacc. Seriously, check him out. My current favorite is “I Need a Dollar” from his Good Things album. That will probably change tomorrow though. He’s just that good!

FOUR

Pacers

Since March has arrived, I’m beginning to feel the craziness that is March Madness. Personally, I am not a college sports fan. Pacers all the way, baby.

FIVE
I’m still chugging along with IIFYM. Check out this post if you’re wondering what the heck that means. I do catch myself wanting to check the scale every single day because I’m just so excited to see what has changed! I’ve only weighed myself three times since last Friday. That’s not too bad, right? Better than every day. Progress people.I have resisted checking my measurements (except for once – and I only measured my stomach – so it doesn’t count), and I’m going to continue waiting until it’s been two weeks since starting IIFYM per Poppy Locks’ suggestion.

Have a great weekend!

Five on Friday 2.26.16

Joining in with April, Christina, Natasha, and Darci for Five on Friday today. It’s been awhile, but I’m excited to start back up again!

THE GOOD LIFE BLOG

ONE

Pacers Game 2.24.16On Wednesday afternoon, Potter told me that he had won a raffle at work that morning, so we were able to go to the Pacers game that morning for free! That was certainly a nice surprise. I love the Pacers, so I was super excited. I was even more excited when I found out that we were in the 13th row (!), and they were playing the Evil Knicks. Even better, we won!

TWO

Grizwald

Snuggling with Mr. Grizwald here is one of my favorite forms of stress relief. He’s a super weird dog but oh so entertaining.

THREE

Speaking of stress relief, I’ve been trying to incorporate more yoga into my life. One of my goals for this year was to get crow pose down. I should probably start working more on that since it’s almost march!

FOUR

Comparison

In case you missed it, I wrote last week about how I compare myself to others, especially when it comes to my school life. If you’re struggling with this, you are not alone.

FIVE

Caffeine addict

I have my pathophysiology midterm next Tuesday, so I’ll be living at the library or Starbucks until then. I’m thinking about gifting myself with this mug as a reward for taking the exam – not even getting a good grade, just getting through it. C’s get degrees after all. Just kidding, kind of.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a fantastic and relaxing weekend. I certainly did!

My weekend started out, as it usually does in the fall, on Friday night with my brothers’ football game. Although they are both injured at the moment and can’t play, I still love getting to see my family every week and watching my high school team play. I forgot to take any pictures, but here’s one from a few weeks ago.

I started out my Saturday right with a little run (which you’ll hear more about tomorrow).

IMG_0839[1]It was a beautiful day, and the Greenway was basically empty, which is just the way I like it. You can read more about that here. I was reppin’ my BSU shirt of course!

IMG_0840[1]My calorie burn wasn’t too shabby either! Ignore the crazy eyes. I’m uncomfortable taking selfies in public (or in private for that matter). The rest of my day was spent watching BSU beat Toledo (chirp chirp!) and doing homework.

On Sunday, I did a little shopping and found these gems. I used them for an afternoon cup of coffee, and it was delicious as well as beautiful to look at!

IMG_0850[1]If you’ve seen my Instagram, I think I may be starting a coffee mug obsession. They’re just too cute!

The rest of my day was spent watching the Colts kick Jaguar ass, waiting for Russell Wilson to actually score some points for my fantasy team, and looking at Pinterest recipes that I should never eat.

All in all, a pretty great weekend!
