Five on Friday

Happy Happy Friday!

I hope you all are doing well and are safe after this week of crazy storms we’ve had in the Midwest.  We spent a little more time in the basement this week, but I’m thankful that we are doing well.  And thankful it’s the weekend!  Here’s the five things I’m loving today:

 1. The Daniel Plan

As I mentioned on Monday we are doing the Daniel Plan.  Currently I am on day 5 of the detox.  This has been difficult, but good, as I have never been that disciplined of an eater.  I never had good eating habits, but it did not get me into trouble until I hit a really stressful time in my life about 6 years ago and I stopped running, stressed about everything, and started to put on weight.  I managed to lose all the weight I had gained after I had my first baby, but now I’ve had a second and I’ve got a few extra pounds hanging around.  I’m hoping the Daniel Plan can help me really focus in on my eating habits and keep a healthy lifestyle going.  You can read more about my progress in a post I wrote yesterday. {Disclaimer: Please note that I my posts on the Daniel Plan are not medical advice, they are merely my personal experiences.}

And this is why I’m working on my fitness.  Plus, isn’t this cute?  I think I might have to get one.  Just discovered Cross Training Couture.

I also saw this shirt (but in a pretty purple) at the Nike outlet this past weekend and I kind of wish I had snatched it up… but I have this thing about my weight right now.  I want to get the baby weight off before I buy any new clothes because I always want to try them on before I buy them just to be sure I like how they fit.  So yeah, putting some purchases on hold for a little while…

4. I Dream of You

I’ve enjoyed JJ Heller for some time now and I just discovered this awesome album of lullabys that she and her husband wrote.  I LOVE it!  You have got to check it out!

I may get the chance to go to IKEA this weekend!  Wohoo!  Oh it has been too long.  It’s been 1 year and 5 months, to be exact.  Somehow, though, I’m thinking it might not be as much fun with 2 little kids.  But I’m looking forward to it anyway!

I love the Because My Body is a Temple tank! I also want to focus on healthy and not so much on skinny. And sadly, I like to eat.

I love your blog:) I'll be visiting again soon!

I have heard wonderful things about the Daniel Plan, good for you! Love that tank, and $20 isn't bad at all :) I've never been to Ikea, Ugh I want to! Oklahoma needs to get one. Have a great weekend!

I've been banned from Ikea for a while. I think I went a little crazy the last time I was there. :-) Our kids have a lot of fun going there, but we usually don't purchase anything big when they are with us. Have fun!

We won't be getting anything big, I just love to browse and usually get a few small things. We did get our flooring from there 3 years ago- that's been our biggest purchase.
