TGIF! Another Friday is here. My eye is healing quite nicely. The photo on the left is after eye surgery, the photo on the right is one week later. Next week I go to have the stitches removed (which does not sound pleasant). I still have some pain, am sensitive to light, and it waters a lot; but overall I think it is doing fantastic.
Check out this HUGE strawberry I put in my smoothie yesterday! I have a large bag of frozen strawberries and some of them are quite large. I will say that strawberries and spinach in the same smoothie = not a fun color.
Let’s get started!
Five Must Read Blog Posts
Favorite Treadmill Workouts by Madeline – Here are some fantastic treadmill workouts that you can easily adjust to walk or run. While we all love to get outside for the fresh air, sometimes it just isn’t convenient or the weather doesn’t cooperate.
Death by Slamball by Tina – Loved this workout. At first I was like – well that’s easy. Nope, not at all. Starts easy and gets progressively harder each minute. This could be something fun to do in your driveway or on your back porch.
Focus on the Can by Caitlin – I love these. What positive efforts can you make daily in your life? Add more water? Call a friend? 10 minute walk? What CAN you do?
A DIY 30-minute whole body workout by Tamara – Ever find a workout graphic and love some of the exercises, but hate others? You won’t feel this way about this one. Tamara has created the DIY workout. You choose 1 exercise from each category based on what you like and the equipment you have available. LOVE this so much.
What do dietitians eat? by Julie – Julie reached out to four dietitians and they answered some questions about what they eat, what they avoid, recipes they love, and much more. Great post.

Focus on the tasks and habits that move you forward; not the ones that keep you where you were yesterday.

Big plans for today? This weekend?
This weekend we are doing the Neon Vibe 5K. I have never done one before. Apparently it is another color run, just done at night. We also have the munchkin’s birthday to celebrate!
Have a healthy day!
