Fabulous Fall Five for Friday!!!

Posted Nov 02 2012 6:48am

Happy 1st Friday of November!!! Are you ready for a great weekend? We are doing a local race tomorrow morning. Hubby running the 5K and I am walking the 1 mile. This race specifically states no walkers on the 5K course. I am cool with that. My surgery is TWO WEEKS from today. I am both nervous and ready for this. Nervous because I don’t know how long I will be “down”, in pain, etc. Ready because once I have it, my leg can start healing and hopefully I will be able to start walking faster and longer.

Also on tap this weekend is a trip to Target and a wedding (my cousin’s). Very excited we get an extra hour this weekend. Don’t forget to change your clocks!

I succeeded in my goal of NO Halloween candy yesterday. I allowed myself a few pieces on Halloween, but didn’t want it to continue for a second day. Is there Halloween candy at the office? YES. The majority of it is in the back – far, far from my desk. I did keep 5 pieces at my desk for “emergencies.”

Check out my sweet Halloween gift from Jenn at fitappetit.com . (There are a few items not shown.) Jenn and I are both Girls Gone Sporty ambassadors and some of us participated in a Halloween swap. I hope she enjoyed the package I sent her. Prayers for her since she has been without power for days due to the Hurricane.

Choose quality over quantity. Smaller portions of good foods are more satisfying than large portions of junk food.
