happy Friday, friends! super stoked this beautiful day has finally arrived, as this has felt like a looooong week for me. anyone with me?
let’s get right into the fabulous Friday Five, aka what’s rockin’ my world this week:
*this babyface darling sweetheart lovebug of a mush.
there’s no way i could put anything else as my #1 this week when this boy is in my life. he’s totally stolen my heart and i can’t wait to see lil Henry and my bff Jess tomorrow. yep, headed back upstate, aka my weekend home.
and a transitional image to tie the above and below parts together today (and because it’s so cute, i couldn’t leave it out!):
*workouts. this has been a killer week for workouts for me — stoked about that. the legs are significantly less sore every day, and i haven’t skipped a day since last Tuesday — and i’ve kept my workouts varied enough (aka, didn’t overdo the running even though i’m finally running without much pain again) that i’m still feeling good. i also have had a lot of sleep this week and kept the plans to a minimum — my social life has been the gym or else watching the Voice with pumpkin beer and my Halloween costume crafting to keep me company — and it’s been quite glorious. i had a totally rad workout this morning: an hour of intense plyo-free weights-abs followed by 15 mins on the Arc trainer, and it was exactly what i needed to kickstart my weekend into amazingness gear.
*words to live by. things my heart scream.
have i mentioned that the hours of 5:30-8:30 am are some of the best of my day? biking down the west side on a beautiful October morning does wonders for my soul and helps me start the day thankful for some quiet time and fresh air (before having to be indoors all day, which pains me to no end). this morning was simply gorgeous and i willingly risked my life to fish my phone out of my purse (which was dangling on the handlebars) to snap this shot while cycling. and boy, was it worth it.
have a wonderful weekend, friends! i’ll hopefully have some beautiful pictures of upstate NY and some funny ones of my Halloween costume to share with you next week. 🙂
Tell me something great from your week!
How do you commute to work? Any other bikers?
