Friday Favorites–Watermelon is the Secret Code Word

Happy Friday!

Although I was super tired yesterday I’m glad this week has helped get me back to waking up early. It’s good for me to get up and going since I have a lot of stuff going on lately. It’s just that first week that’s kinda rough.

Speaking of yesterday… I had a baking success and made blueberry bars. But the best part was combing a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese and jam to make frosting. Yes.

This morning I ran and had some eggs for breakfast.

You know, the usual…

Since you know I play favorites here is my list for this week…


Fun Friday Favorites…

1. The best hangover cures from bartenders.

2. Guys and Girls Surveyed on the Ideal Body – spoiler: Guys like curves. Girls picked skinnier bodies.

3. Hummus.

4. This shirt from Zazzle that The Bloggess linked to (not sure why since I’m super behind on reading blogs, just randomly stumbled on it) this week.



5. My new Mizunos – these are lighter than the ones I’ve been wearing so I think I’ll keep them for shorter distances but I dig the retro kinda look with glittery laces.

And then I realized I titled this picture Mixuno. I really am tired! Ha!!

    Wow that was strange. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked
    submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyways, just wanted to say great blog!

    Hmmm, so many faves. <3 That blueberry looks fantastic!

    Believe it or not, a track workout was favorite thing this week. I haven't run at a track since I moved here last May! It was awesome to run the lines, look forward to the finish, and not throw up. 😀

    Love watermelon and I referenced you on my blog yesterday because I have been eating watermelon daily since I have a long run tomorrow and I know you say it is good for recovery.

    Looking forward to running 12 miles tomorrow, longest distance yet.

    Hey Monica!

    My favorite thing this week is that spring break starts today at 3:) And speaking of spring break, I am visiting LA for the first time next week! Any running tips/trails while staying in the city and, more importantly, tips on what I should see while I’m there?!

      I feel like Lock Laces would hurt the top of my foot. I think I tried these other stretchy laces when I was a kid and didn’t like em. I don’t know, maybe…

    The favorite thing happened just this morning. Better late than never, right? Or is it sad that it took until Friday for something to come along =). My whole foods makes quinoa pancakes for bfast. Not to go all church in this response, but no meat today. Quinoa cakes, some almond slivers, chocolate candied pecans and some organic grade B syrup…well that’s hard to beat. Did I mention chocolate candied pecans?! Have a kick ass weekend chica!

    I love those shoes! I’m in the process of admitting I may need new running shoes (loyal to a fault) and I’ve been trying out Mizunos, I really like them!!

    Those blueberry bars look amazing! My favorite thing this week was making brownies (mostly eating all the batter and frosting).

    Love that link to the ideal bodies! My husband and I talk about this all the time. For example, for those of you who watch The Vikings, he can’t understand what Ragnar sees in Princess Aslaug. He much prefers the look of Lagertha, which I honestly can’t complain about since I look closer to her than the princess!

    My favorite thing this week – a beautiful trail run in SHORTs 70F and sunny. And also fresh pineapple – I got some at the store last weekend and haven been snacking on it all week.

    My favorite thing this week is learning I could make an egg salad sandwich with avocado instead of mayo. Delicious!
