Five Things Friday

Hello friends! It's Friday...I actually spent all day thinking yesterday was Friday so I'm a bit off! But I am 97% sure that today is in fact Friday!

Here are 5 things that are rocking my world this week:
1. The Hunger Games
I may be a little late to the party but I am OBSESSED with the Hunger Games right now.  I finished the 1st book last night and I'm sad it's over. It was so good! All of you who told me to read it....well you were genius! I can't wait for the movie to come out as I'm planning to see it with my friend, blogger, and now Hungers Games lover too FitPossible!

2. Blueberry Scones
I finally got to bake Lindsay's scones and there were great! I'm not a big baker. I'm a lazy chef so I was proud of myself. I kneaded dough!  They came out perfect and had a great blueberry flavor without being too sweet.

3. Giant Salad Bowls
Salad mixing made so much easier in my giant Ikea bowls! I greatly dislike trying to stir my salad and losing leaves all over the place.  This bowl is perfect and our salad combo of spinach, avocado, tomato, and turkey bacon was a hit!

4. Green Tea Kit Kats
Yes, you read that right.  Green Tea Kit Kats!  Don't start a massive search for one, however, they're sold in Japan.  We tried one in Tampa last week and it was ridiculously good. Very creamy and sweet.  Note- if any foodie penpals have a Far East connection get me a kit kat!  MMmmmkkkkkkk- thanks!

5. Heavy Weights
Heavy weights are back after 2 weeks of tapering for my half marathon.  It was nice to get a good deadlift in yesterday. Feel the burn!

Here's a pinable version of yesterday's full body workout:Pin It

Don't forget that we are in the middle of Week 3 of the Fit2Flex50 Challenge and this week a participant will get free product from Designer Whey.  You can do the challenge as many days as you can, tweet us, comment, and maybe win!

Have a great weekend my friends and don't forget to sweat!

Love and the odds EVER in your favor,
Carissa & Kyle
