Happy Friday!  This week flew by and I’m so excited to be seeing Biana and Pamela tomorrow at the Gator Game!

Let’s get right into it!

Favorite Song

My life has been a little hectic right now and trying to get in for a class when I’m not teaching has been a little hard to schedule so I’m really trying to get back into my running especially since the weather may hopefully be cooling down (maybe??) sometime soon!  Putting together some running playlists.  I was toying around with some Saturday running playlist blog posts if anyone was interested?  This was my favorite spin song…..I pretty much ended as many classes as I could with.  It is the best sprinting interval song when that beat drops at the 1:20 mark time to take off.  Sebastian Ingrosso, Tommy Trash, John Martin “Reload”.

Favorite Recipe
After reading Lauren’s story with her run in with her mandolin (warning I work in healthcare and I still cringed) I think I’ll stick to my vegetable spiralizer.  It’s a little temperamental but less deadly.  I absolutely love this Zucchini Noodles with Cilantro Lime Chicken recipe.  I add a little more lime and a red pepper for color and taste.  I even got Mark to eat it as a side…  Please make sure to pin from the original.
Favorite Workout

This girl is one of the popsugar trainers I can actually deal with……she’s not overly peppy.  Those planks walk with hip drop, total insanity but great bang for your buck move.  Try it!  Only 10 minutes but a burner!

Favorite Purchase
I made one exception to my spending freeze because they don’t take up a lot of room……good rationale right?  I am always on the hunt for good fitting faux leather leggings and naturally Hue stepped up to the plate at a fairly reasonable price.  Can’t wait to tuck these into booties with a chunky sweater when it actually get’s cool here.
Favorite Funnies
Every single day of my life….
Times by how many cute kid patients I see in a day
Pretty much how all arguments should end…..
The truth…..what was even harder was when I had to part with that 20lbs zippered book
When I hear a song on the radio break that I played in my spin class well over a year ago….

Pretty much me after our cake testing yesterday

Which makes me now want to do this (I guarantee she’s listening to Beyonce)
via tumblr
Or this…..
via tumblr
but let’s be honest we know how that would end up for me
via tumblr
I will leave you all with this……what is our world coming to?  I wish I was joking……
Alright now it’s your turn!  Tell me your favorites from this week!  Who is your team playing this weekend?  Hope you have a fabulous one xoxoxoxo

    I love zoodles. I actually still have my CD case in my closet. It is heavy. She is rocking out, but I would be the guy with the fliop flops flying. Why did he think that would be a good idea?!

    my friend just got home after a honeymoon in greece and she told me about these “selfie sticks” every one was using, whic is a stick you snap your iphone into and somehow integrates into the phone so you can take your own selfies from farther away to get more of the background/less in your face selfies. so crazy. ps…is florida backwards?

  9. September 12, 2014 / 12:18 PM

    Love your faux leather leggings! Can’t wait to see how you wear them. And selfie brush, what?! That is redic… Happy Weekend!!

  10. September 12, 2014 / 12:23 PM

    Ohhhh the selfie brush! A coworker sent me the link for that this week and I about gagged! Love those treadmill gifs especially that dude doing turns….how do you learn to do that?

  11. September 12, 2014 / 12:42 PM

    Oh my gosh, the selfie brush is too much for me! I can’t handle it, hahah!

    Have fun at your football game this weekend!! I’m looking forward to the Illini game next weekend with some college friends!

  12. September 12, 2014 / 12:45 PM

    ohhh those funnies…hilarious! And those leggings are totally worth the spending.

  13. September 12, 2014 / 12:47 PM

    I love zucchini pasta! I’ll have to try this! I had using a mandolin too. I’ve hurt myself too amt times! :( Have fun at the game!

  14. September 12, 2014 / 12:49 PM

    oh my gosh that stair stepper, i swear i almost die on that thing. yay for running, i would love to see your playlists, i’m nosy like that! and omg i am so thankful I sent back the mandolin thingy before I saw Lauren’s post because I would have absolutely done that!! Now I need the spiralizer! have a great time at the game, jealous you get to see Pam & B!

  15. September 12, 2014 / 12:50 PM

    Cake testing is the best part of wedding planning, but the worst timing for eating a bunch of cake! lol. Hope you found one you liked. Those workout gifs are hilarious! I would definitely fall on my butt if I tried doing any of those. :) Have a fun weekend!

  16. September 12, 2014 / 12:50 PM

    I need to get me some of those leggings!!! Perfect for fall :)

  17. September 12, 2014 / 12:58 PM

    i’m totally going to use that argument statement the next time M and i argue!! LOL

  18. September 12, 2014 / 1:08 PM

    No! Not a selfie brush!! And I’ve been back/forth on a spiralizer – I think I’d love it once or twice then decide it’s too much work. I want to love it!

  19. September 12, 2014 / 1:11 PM

    Oh my gosh those work out gifs. Amazing. LOL. Now I’m motivated to go to the gym this morning!! I use a stair master like that every week, so maybe I’ll try that girl’s technique? I loved doing all of the food tasting for our wedding especially the cake. Chris says that is the only thing that he had a say in during the planning haha. Thanks for sharing that workout and recipe too, both sound great! Have a fab weekend! :-)

  20. September 12, 2014 / 1:18 PM

    Ahhh have fun with B tomorrow! Love that pic of your and your man by the way! Ok the selfie brush? No way. I can’t wait to see someone using that on the street some day!!

  21. September 12, 2014 / 1:20 PM

    Is it weird that I excitedly come here every Friday to read your favorite workout? No, not weird at all. I love it. I’ve been going back and forth and back and forth wondering if I should purchase “leather” leggings slabs mostly if I could pull them off. Sounds like I just need to get them!

  22. September 12, 2014 / 1:22 PM

    HAHAHA! Those gifts are too funny. Love the new leggings. I totally need to start working out more. Too bad you didn’t live closer, I could hire you as my trainer. How funny is that selfie brush?? I so wanna get one for my friend!! Have a great weekend and enjoy the game.

  23. September 12, 2014 / 1:24 PM

    That’s it I am buying the zoodler. That looks so good! And those faux leather leggings… must have!!!

  24. September 12, 2014 / 1:26 PM

    I have faux leather leggings and love them!! Except for the noise they make when I walk! Love all those work out GIFs! Haha!

  25. September 12, 2014 / 1:41 PM

    haha love those workout GIFs!! SO jealous you get to go to the game this weekend, can’t wait to see your pictures next week! Have a beer at the Swamp for me and GO GATORS :)

  26. September 12, 2014 / 1:45 PM

    Love those funnies! I wish we could carry them around on cards and ‘play’ them when necessary! Enjoy your weekend!

  27. September 12, 2014 / 1:47 PM

    Haha love the little kids e-card :) I have a 10 month old, and whenever I think about wanting another, I think about how 6 months I didn’t sleep through the entire night and maybe I need a little break haha

  28. September 12, 2014 / 2:03 PM

    haha I am the same way about music. Especially since the EDM they play on the radio is generally pretty old! and I love reload, I remember hearing that live at Tomorrowland in 2012 and freaking out!

  29. September 12, 2014 / 2:23 PM

    omg the selfie brush…a MUST have…haha. I still have that 20 lb book of CDs…I don’t trust technology enough to part with it. It’s in my garage though. I probably still haven’t downloaded all of it to my iTunes! And she is soooo listening to Beyonce…she makes me jam like that every time.

    Mark should probably get you the selfie brush for your Christmas stocking.

    Have an amazing time in Gainesville this weekend!!!!!

  31. September 12, 2014 / 3:03 PM

    The selfie brush is hilarious and I feel like getting it for a gag. I never brush my hair though.

    I had a really hard time parting with that CD book.

  32. September 12, 2014 / 3:17 PM

    OMG. A Selfie Brush? Is that really a thing? I am dying. Wow, strange place this world is becoming. I’m so glad you found a pair of faux leather leggings – I bought my first pair a couple weeks ago, and I am just itching to bust them out with a chunky sweater and boots! Your funnies are on another level this week – that girl on the Stair Master is totally channeling Beyonce. Have a great time at the football game with the blogger ladies!

  33. September 12, 2014 / 3:42 PM

    Ooooh the people working out – that is SKILL. The brush? I have no words. :) Have a great weekend!!!!

  34. September 12, 2014 / 3:48 PM

    Hue leggings are my faaavorite and I’m so excited they have a leather option now!! Those will be mine! Happy Friday and have an awesome weekend!

  35. September 12, 2014 / 3:59 PM

    Hahah to be a fly on the wall in those gyms. Had to copy/paste the right/wrong ecard to my husband and then continue reading your post. Those leggings are HOT and look uber expensive so it’s totally ok that you made that purchase ;) Have SO MUCH FUN at the game – JEALOUS much!?

  36. September 12, 2014 / 4:01 PM

    I never tire of people falling off of a treadmill :)

  37. September 12, 2014 / 4:19 PM

    Hahaha I love the treadmill videos but that chick on the stair master is priceless! I’ve seen it before and I still laugh. Amazing, go her!! Yeeesss on the cd’s, so true. I still have some in the car but not that many haha. Have a great weekend!!

  38. September 12, 2014 / 4:36 PM

    I’ve been looking for a good zucchini noodle recipe! Also the last GIF…where his shoes fly off…I’m done. Can’t even handle it.

  39. September 12, 2014 / 4:44 PM

    Zucchini noodles look amazing, I will definitely have to make this dish for my fam :) The treadmill videos are hilarious I could watch them all day and laugh. Have a great weekend !!!

  44. September 12, 2014 / 5:48 PM

    Hahahah that woman on the step machine…that’s freaking hilarious. She’s gettin’ down!

    And I totally support that purchase, because those faux leather leggings will be PERFECT for fall/winter.

  45. September 12, 2014 / 5:57 PM

    OMG!! The exercise machine funnies…I wish I were that coordinated but you and I both know I’m too big of a liability for that shit and would end up like the last one in that series. For realsies. I’d be totes interested in a running playlist from you seeing as though you’re the soul reason I actually listen to music while running now!!!

  46. September 12, 2014 / 7:00 PM

    Reload is SUCH A GOOD SONG!!!!!! also those leggings. hot.

  47. September 12, 2014 / 8:11 PM

  54. September 14, 2014 / 2:47 AM

    Those leggings are so hot! I just read the mandolin story and yikes! I knew there was a reason I rarely used mine! I want a spiralizer now! Such a great way to think you’re eating carbs without the weight gain!

  55. September 15, 2014 / 10:46 AM
