A Few Things Friday...

1.  Here's a great way to end your week.  Check out my new favorite commercial.  Once again, I am smitten with whoever made this commercial (remember, my imaginary love affair with the Hump Day creator?!)  I now want all the Guinness:

2.  I was nominated for my first ever blogging award!  Angelena, who blogs over at On Fire Fitness, and a fellow Sweat Pink Ambassador, nominated me for a Liebster Award!  Liebster awards are 'love' given to new bloggers by more veteran bloggers.  I am humbled and filled with gratitude to be nominated.  The sense of community and encouragement I feel from the blogging community already is so awe inspiring; and reminds me a lot of the running community.  Something I've been trying to do more and more in my life is support and encourage those around me, regardless of our differences, and I love being part of a network that strives to do just that.  So, my Liebster post will be up in a bit.  In the meantime, I'd love to be introduced to some new blogs to nominate so feel free to drop me a comment if you are a newbie too! 

3.  September Fitness Challenge.  I created a simple challenge for September, since this month is going to be more heavily focused on preparing for my October race.  I've simply made a commitment to do at least 100 crunches, of any variety, every day this month.  Some days I do more, some days I don't, but I like the simplicity of it. 


4.  And lastly, I'm heading down to Myrtle Beach, SC tomorrow for a family vacation.  Entire extended family of multiple generations under the same roof for a whole week, what could go wrong?! I kid, I kid!  I am looking forward to spending some quality time with my grandparents, parents, aunt, sisters and of course the kiddos.  Also, I lucked out and got pretty much the coolest roomie EVER:

Fear not, I will keep in touch next week via Twitter and Instagram, and I'll post a recap when I return.

Have a great weekend!

Questions for today:

Any commercials lately you just love?

What do you like about the blogging world?

Any of you doing a fitness challenge this month?


  1. I started blogging a few months ago and I have had so much fun! Every day I learn something new about fitness, nutrition, or maintaining a blog from the amazing people that are part of this community!

    I love fitness challenges. They help keep me motivated on the tough days. This month I've been doing a 5-minutes-of-yoga-every-day Challenge because September is National Yoga Month! Next month I should definitely do a core challenge. A strong core really is a major key to avoiding injury.

    1. Hi there!

      Thanks so much for finding me and commenting! I've nominated you for the next Liebster award. So glad I have a new blog to follow. One of my new goals is to get into yoga, so I like the idea of your September challenge.

  2. I love that commercial - thanks for sharing it

    1. Hi Michelle,
      You're welcome! It's such a feel good commercial isn't it?! I wanted to let you know I've nominated you for a Liebster award as well :)
