Friday Features

by tinareale on August 17, 2012

Oh, Friday! Thank you for finally arriving! This week seemed to drag on forever for me. Plus, Peter had a lot of later nights at work this week. I’m ready for the weekend and some quality time with my family, including special time with my man since we have time for a DATE this weekend! Woo!

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you enjoy this week’s features!

Best Body Fitness Updates

Just in case you missed the announcement yesterday…Round Three will be coming for Best Body Bootcamp!! Get the details. While I feel a bit weird tooting my own horn, I think Emily’s comment summing up her thoughts on the program are pretty on point. And the best compliment a trainer could ask for!



Get Your Fitness Going


Eat It Up!


Reflect & Grow

  • Amanda talks all about unplugging and just how glorious it is. I try to unplug as much as possible every weekend and it certainly rejuvenates me for the week!
  • Ever struggle with productivity? **oooh ooh raises hand high** Well, now I really want to read this book and apply some of these tips to Get Things Done.
  • Why I want to be able to “get things done” is to have more time for the things that matter. Jolene touches on that perfectly in her post about learning to sit down.
  • I loved loved loved loved this post on What Is Confidence from Stephanie over at Fit Mom in Training.


Just For Fun

Happy reading! I’ll be back tomorrow with a personal catch-up. Have a fantabulous Friday and a great weekend if I don’t catch you ‘til Monday!

I love the Ode to Long Runs! I’ve had a little trouble getting back on track after a 5 day vacation home when I only ran once, so this was a little motivation that lets me know I’m not the only one who feels these feelings about long runs. I really do love the thinking time I get for myself, and theres nothing better than keeping up a good pace for a long distance when you’re feeling awesome!
