#FiveThings {Oct 26}

The weekend has finally coming to a close.  Got a lot of things done, but also spent a lot of time taking my time.  After being so busy these past couple of weeks/weekends, I can’t complain…ready and refreshed for another week!  Let’s jump in to the week’s #FiveThings…

The Skimm

I understand that I’m a little late jumping on this train…but I’m officially obsessed with The Skimm.  It’s perfect for those on the go, with honest and funny {honestly, it’s funny} recaps of what’s going on in today’s world.  Their tagline?  “We read.  You Skimm”


I read it on breaks at work, and it catches me up on need to know info.  Even election/midterm news, which is extremely important if you’re living in NC…Tillis/Hagan…Hagan/Tillis…things are heatin’ up down in North Cakalacky.

Work Salad

If I said I eat this 4 out of the 5 days of the work week, I’d be telling the truth.  The cafe at my job has a variety of amazingly delicious food {and it’s subsidized…work perk}.  However, since I sit all dang day, I try to be as healthy as I can.  This curried kale salad has been my saving grace…

It’s full to the brim {the salad line people hook me up}.  The ingredients?:  Baby kale, cucumbers, carrots, red onion, real bacon bits, beets, mandarin oranges, blueberries, chopped blackened chicken, almonds and cashews, topped with curried dressing {they still won’t tell me the ‘secret’ ingredients in the dressing}.

After 5+ months, I haven’t gotten tired of it, I’m a creature of habit, what can I say?  If anyone knows any good curry dressing recipes, let me know. 🙂

Nick Jonas

I’m a sucker for bad music.

But really, where did Nick Jonas come from?  Left field, that’s where.  {Almost} completely shaking his Jo-Bro sound, I can’t get enough of his new music.  I love listening to it when I workout.  My current favorite?  “Chains”…

Split Jumps/Jumping Lunges

Call them what you want, but split jumps are in my top five of workout moves…ever.  I’m not sure exactly what it is about them, but I always find myself completing three sets of twenty of these babies before my workout is done, most days of the week.


My New Cooz

Last weekend, when I went to Miami, my brother went home to Durham to participate in the Bull City Racefest.  After the race there were, as always, a variety of vendors and sponsors where you could pick up some free SWAG {or as Michael Scott would say, “Stuff We All Get”}.  Ryan decided to be a nice sibling and bring me back a themed Durham/Running coozie.

Classic.  And extremely fitting for a place like Durham, if you’re not from there you probably won’t understand.  Stay weird, Durham.

So there ya have it, what are your #FiveThings for the week?
