Hello and Happy Friday! By the time many of you read this, I will probably be done with surgery. For those who might be new to my blog, I was diagnosed with exertional compartment syndrome in my right calf. I am very excited to finally get this taken care of. I will say that waking up and not being able to grab some water is tough. Also the fact that I only got 4 hours of sleep. But I know I will be sleeping most of the day.
Let’s discuss yesterday. Great day at work. Love my co-workers – they are fabulous. I am caught up. I will be back in the office after Thanksgiving. I had a fabulous 31 party! Tons of ladies shopping for Christmas presents and themselves. Huge thanks to my neighbor J for throwing this and inviting me to be a part. Hopefully it will be an annual tradition. Check out this dessert she made. Sadly I didn’t have time to taste any of the food – I am sure it was delicious though.
Immediately after the 31 party, I headed to the theater to catch Breaking Dawn Part 2 with my girlfriends. OMG!!!! If you are a Twilight fan, this movie is a must see. And see it before you read about it. I won’t say anything else, but run to the theaters to check it out. It truly was a great way to end the series. It is also one you will want to see in the theater multiple times.
I wanted to share some fabulous blogs and tweets with you today. Here we go – Five for Friday!
5 Great Blogs to Read
Holiday Music for Your Gym Playlist by Nicole – If you love Christmas music as much as I do, you will love Nicole’s playlist. One song to add – Blue Christmas by Elvis!
Try, Try Again by Tina – Tina is working to build up her plank time to over 5 minutes (soooo super impressive) and offers a 9 Minute Plank Workout for you to try. I am holding at around 60-70 seconds for a plank. Once I am back on my feet, 2 minutes will be my next goal.

Relax your diet rules. If 80% diet is strict, then 20% can be a loose. Minimizes stress which is a huge obstacle in weight loss. #fitblog
