Friday I’m In Love…

This is the happiest kind of Friday of them all…a long weekend Friday!


Although I’m not traveling anywhere, I’m hoping to make the above photo a reality. My grand plans for the weekend include sleeping, pool time with friends, movies and just hanging out at home. Sounds like the perfect stay-cation to me!

Here are a few things that I’m loving on this Friday!


Which Wich. I got that sandwich I wanted yesterday for lunch. (And was right back to salad again today…old habits die hard! :)) Can we talk about how they’re able to neatly fit unlimited toppings into one sandwich? It’s impressive and they never make a mess.


These new bracelets from Erin McDermott. I am all about the layering of the bracelets lately so I’m happy to have these great pieces to add to my growing collection.


It’s Danielle LaPorte’s fifth annual “Pay What You Can” weekend and she’s offering name your own price for  The Desire Map. As you all know, I am a huge fan of The Fire Starter Sessions but I’ve yet to complete The Desire Map. With a birthday coming up and constant evaluation of goals and growth, I think it’s time.


Colored yoga pants. For years I avoided this trend and then gave in and purchased these blue Lululemon Wunder Unders. I’ve since got them in neon yellow and bright pink. They’re actually super fun to wear and make me feel a little brighter and more energetic. And I receive endless comments on them every time I wear them. Side note…I took these photos goofing off at a friend’s house on her tree swing last week.

Finally, my Audible app. I have all but quit listening to the radio save for NPR when Morning Edition or All Things Considered are on. All other times I listen to e-books. I’m currently listening to Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In. I know the book has received mixed reviews but overall I really like the message. Since a young age I have always felt very career driven and grew up in a household where that was encouraged by both my mother and father. I literally used to tell people that I wanted to be an international businesswoman and travel the world in a suit kicking ass. Although I have found a very different career path than international business, I am equally as driven to do it. And I’m sometimes criticized for that drive. Admittedly, I’m not quite ready to add the family piece into the equation so work encompasses a lot of my time and focus, but I do have a desire to do so at some point in the future. When that time comes there will definitely be a reevaluation of balance and priorities but I know that I will always do the work I do in some capacity. I just love it so much. Tying that back into Lean In, I appreciate Sheryl Sandberg’s belief that you can have it all.

And that’s all! Off to train one more client and then weekend time!

    I am so ready for this long weekend! I love Which which too! The sandwiches I make at home just don’t taste the same as when the pros make it! Which which sandwich makers are considered pros, right? 😉

    I have the blue wunder unders and I love them! Although, someone at CrossFit called me a smurf – I’ll roll with it (good things come in small packages right?) Have a great weekend!

    I love wearing brightly colored workout clothes. I just think it makes it more fun 🙂

    I love audile and lean in! I get so bored in the car listening to music so I have also switched to some great podcasts and audible! Lean In is one of my favorite books, you should also watch her Ted Talk, it is pretty powerful!

    I started worked at Lululemon 3 weeks ago and I so wish we still had those guys in my size. They are awesome! Love that they reverse to all black

    Btw Jen, have you ever considered doing an ebook with some workouts? I always LOVE your workouts when I try them 🙂
