HAPPY FRIDAY! The weekend is almost here! Any big plans this weekend? I am heading to a graduation, a graduation dinner, and doing my first mile fun walk. In between all of that I have cleaning and studying to do. Once again they are calling for scattered thunderstorms throughout the weekend. I just hope it doesn’t affect Sunday’s race.
I have some great posts, tweets, and photos from the week that I want to share with you. Here we go!
Five Favorite Blog Posts
Cherry Limeade Cookies by Kendra – First of all, Kendra’s blog “I Wrestled a Cupcake Once” is new to me even though I have known Kendra for a while. She is the niece of one of my closest friends and she is now Dr. Kendra as she just graduated med school. Kendra posts TONS of yummy sounding recipes on her blog. Be sure and check them out. These cookies sound delicious since I am also a fan of Sonic’s Cherry Limeade.
Parmesan and Garlic Roasted Edamame by Tina – How could you go wrong with this recipe? Three of my favorite things. I have definitely got to try this one. It looks fairly easy to do which is always a plus in my book.
#HealthyBudget: 3 Apps to Help You Save by Melissa – You guys know I love my gadgets and my apps. I really want to try the Grocery Guru. I have yet to find a grocery shopping app that I love. With all the technology I have, it seems silly writing the grocery list on a piece of paper.
This Week I Will by Heather – I love that Heather set healthy intentions for the week. She made a super cool graphic and then listed them all out below. I may have to borrow this idea.
A Week of Workouts by FitFluential – Love that they shared workouts for five days from five different ambassadors.
Five Fabulous Tweets
Note: These are SUPPOSED to appear as actual tweets, not URLs. However, WordPress seems to be trying my patience these days and displays them correctly at times. Sigh. If they don’t appear correctly, you can copy the URL into a browser window and see the tweet. But I am hoping there is no need for that.
What is Nutrition? It's fueling for ENERGY, focus and overall HEALTH — NOT deprivation and counting calories, points or morsels! #realfood

Identify your goals & create a plan based on your own needs. Try not to focus on losing weight, but on improving your overall wellbeing!

Don't try to be perfect w/ nutrition, just be better. Small wins add up to big successes over time. Moderation isn't sexy but it works 🙂
