High Five Friday

High Five Friday March 31 2017 happyfitmama.com

Hello High Five Friday!

Good news first – I don’t have a stress fracture!!! Instead, I have a diagnosis of tendonitis vs pre stress fracture.  Basically, an over use injury.  It still doesn’t mean that I will be running soon but it means I don’t have to wear a frickin’ boot.  No running and gimping around in a boot?  That’s just cruel!

Bad news?  We are getting a significant amount of snow this weekend.  Wtf?!?!

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

#TBT to summer running.  At this moment I’m beginning to wonder if we will ever have summer again.  I’m praying that the meteorologists are just playing a cruel April Fool’s joke on us.

Focusing on what I can do while I’m out from running.  Strength training is always a good idea no matter what state your running is in.

A busy day calls for an easy, stress free dinner.  Bonus when it looks so pretty and vibrant.

Adding insult to injury.  Aqua JOGGER.  Really?!?!

This song came on during my workout on Wednesday and I was instantly transported to step aerobics classes in the 90s. Sing it with me – Everybody dance now!

5 Good Reads

Raising Girls Who Are “Includers” Instead of “Mean Girls” – I remember the mean girl days back when I was a little girl all the way through high school.  Wait, no it still happened in college too.  Why are girls so mean? Really, I want to know why.  Has there been a study done on it? I love this article and will be sharing and hopefully teaching her how to be an includer.

A Thing Called Hand Salad is Making People So Mad – I’m not mad at it but I sure am laughing at it.

Room on the Road: Perfect Fit – Sometimes finding the right fit for right now is all you need.

Why You Should Wake Up at 5 A.M. Every Day – Yes you should! I fully believe that’s how you get stuff done.  On the days that I sleep in a little bit, I feel like I’m rushing to get everything done.  But those early mornings wake ups, I feel like I just sail through.  And I just feel so much better with more energy.

Kicking the Limits Wide Open – I got a little giddy when I saw a rare blog post had been posted by Christine. I love her writing and miss reading her blog.  Read this and you’ll love it too. Guaranteed.

What would you like to High 5 today?

  1. I am beyond happy/relieved for you and the non-stress fracture!! And pool running is the worst. If you need to do it for any length of time I highly suggest getting a WaterFi iPod to maintain sanity.
    I was also giddy to see Christine’s post!! And I have to read about the salad. Really? Why are people so insane?
    Happy Friday and good luck with the snow – boooooo!

  2. I’m so happy to hear that you don’t have a stress fracture and don’t have to wear the boot. Phew. I know it’s still work to get back to 100% but fingers crossed that you’ll be there soon! And thanks for including my post. I know, I’ve totally fallen off writing on my blog. I’m not ready to give it up entirely but more than anything, I MISS all my blogging buddies and am not ready to give all of you up! Yeah and the weather this weekend? It’s really unacceptable at this point.

  3. Christine’s writing is fantastic – I am heading over next to read her post! I am so glad to hear that you aren’t in a boot! 5 AM wake up times are my favorite – even if I’m not “working” at that point in the morning, it feels good to get a jumpstart on the day! And plus, since I work with some people on the East Coast…that way I don’t feel too far behind in the day. Have a wonderful weekend!
