Five Friday Favorites

This afternoon I was productive with emails and cleaning (okay, I just washed the dishes but that was enough for today).

I felt hungry every 3 hours though. I think my body is getting used to eating more often now. A bit after lunch I cut up a watermelon.  IMG_7546 (800x533)

Don’t worry, I had already eaten 4 cups of the stuff before this photo session. That’s the only way I could wait!IMG_7547 (800x533)

A bit later I realized I needed something with protein so I made a protein shake topped with cereal. cereal on smoothie

Since this is my Friday Favorites post and all… I need to say that this is my favorite snack EVER. Well, at least it’s my favorite snack of the year.greasy foreheads are back in right?

Dinn-ah! Burnt english muffin pizzas. Because you know I like burnt stuff and you know I love pizza.burny burny

Here are my Friday Favorites of the week:

1. Stride Gum. After very lengthy research (read: over a pack a day) I have come to the conclusion that this gum lasts longer than any other. It’s science.stride

2. Researching my next vacation. So Kayak has been my BFF all week.image

3. Janetha from Meals and Moves. I often get asked what are my favorite blogs and hate to name names because I’m fickle. But, Meals & Moves is one of my top 5 and I credit Janetha with showing me the power of protein!image

4. TALKING TOO LOUD! I feel especially shout-y the last few days. Random.

5. And this is my favorite piece of swag from Blogher! And it came with a full sized ‘plant’ if you know what I mean Winking smiledildo tree

I have a long run scheduled for tomorrow and am kinda looking forward to it. Finally! Last marathon training session I looked forward to all my runs, but this session I’ve been dreading them. I’m going to focus on staying positive tomorrow and pushing through.

    When I have watermelon in the house it doesnt stay around long. Especially if I cut it up and have it in the fridge, I am constantly going back throughout the day, then before I know it, its gone!
    I was going to have english muffin pizzas tonight! muffins make such a good base.

    I think I agree about the stride gum, but I only really like the green kinds. There is a lighter green one that is good too, but the blue packs, nope not for me! Is that Fiber One Cereal?! I just bought that and havent tried it yet but it looks pretty yummy topping a shake!

    I am struggling with my running. Mostly becuase I am scared to run in the dark, it’s too hot in the afternoon (I say 100 is too hot!), and I am too cheap to go to the gym.

    I am trying to find my rhythm and schedule to figure it out but right now I have decided last week was a rest week! 😉

    I am obsessed with researching our next vacation. So fun!

    I love Janetha too.

    You do not talk too loud. Well at least not in front of me.

    Dildo tree eh?

    I like any gum that lasts a super long time unless “mint” or “cinnamon” is in the flavor somewhere. I need fruity! I don’t think they make a very long-lasting fruity gum. Guess I’ll just have to stick to awesome watermelon.
