High Five Friday

High 5 Friday April 8 2016 happyfitmama.com

Cue the confetti! Today is the 100th post of High Five Friday! Woohoo!

If you want to get in on spreading GOOD news from your week, you can find all the details HERE.

5 From Instagram – I share more pics on Instagram. Are you following me? Please do!

Opps I did it again! Not really…April Fools! I got you guys good last Friday. 🙂

One day it’s 70 degrees. Two days later, it snows. WTF?

My quad is 100% back to normal thanks to taking a week off from running and an awesome massage and cupping session with my massage therapist. It was my first time cupping. It’s pretty cool how it just “vacuums” out the knots.

Staying strong with weights.

And winter returned again. I would have said it was pretty…if it was January. It’s April. APRIL! Stop snowing.

5 Things

Why the Bond Between Running Buddies is So Special – My running buddy, Sarah sent this to me and I couldn’t agree more. I haven’t been running with my friends at all lately and I am craving it. There’s just something special that happens when you run with friends.

A Different Take on “Fitspiration”: Embracing YOU – While the confetti is out for the 100th High 5 Friday post, let it fly again for this awesome post from Kara. I had bookmarked it a few months ago and stumbled upon it in my favorites. Read this and love it because of this -> “embracing YOUR body, maximizing and celebrating your own strengths, letting go of the “imperfections,” and making the most of the incredible body you already have.”

At the Gym: Who is Looking at Whom – The grass is always greener on the other side. Even at the gym.

Pumping Iron at 104 – Never ever say you are too old to do anything. Why not start pumping iron at 101?

Are You Brave Enough? – I’ve never considered myself brave. But I think since I’ve become a runner, I’ve become more so. I’ve set goals. I’ve pushed myself. I’ve learned to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. But I’m not even close to being done. I’ve got a lot of unfinished business.

  2. Congrats on hitting 100!
    We had SLEET yesterday! What’s going on?? I’m definitely looking forward to getting back up into the 70s next week. I need my toddler to be able to get out and run around!

  3. Congrats on 100th High Five! May there be many more to come! I love the positivity you share each week.
    I cannot believe you have snow! It was 85 here yesterday, so I guess it’s extremes in both northern corners. Hopefully some warmer weather comes your way!

    1. Thankfully the snow has melted away (again!!). My fingers are crossed that was the absolute LAST snowstorm until November or December!

  4. Haha! Loved your April Fools Joke, I definitely fell for it for a minute! Glad your quad is feeling better. It is amazing what a good massage and rest can do! Hope your hill training is going well!

  5. I liked the who is looking at who at the gym comic! Congrats on the 100th post :). Also – I tried clicking the link to “A Different Take On Fitspiration” and it’s not working for me!
