Seven Things [I’m Loving]

HAPPY FRIDAY!! Being in the workplace now, I feel I have a legitimate reason to celebrate this fine day :)

I love Fridays because they’re so laid back, and my post will reflect that today, too! Renee tagged me in a fun little “Seven Random Things” post, and I’m supposed to write seven random things that I’m loving right now.

#1 CORY – I like to think I’m pretty well put together, but sometimes I can be a hot mess. He’s the one person I can ugly cry in front of, tell my deepest thoughts to, and share my fears and dreams with. He’s also the person with whom I laugh of my life. Without him, I’m not much 😉

 #2 BodyPUMP – You guys saw my results thus far. Seriously, this class is where it’s at. I look forward to going three times a week, and I enjoy the accomplished soreness that follows. I am constantly impressing myself in that class, which is probably another reason I stick around.

Warm up: 6 AM!

#3 Instagram – I haven’t taken many pictures yet, but I have taken the obligatory self portrait, so that counts for something right? Let’s mutually follow each other, shall we? I’m @lunchboxdiaries :)

#4 Work – I love, love, love my new job and I feel so productive. This is the first time I’m not just working for a paycheck. I’m in a good place and I’m learning new things every day.

#5 The sock bun for short hair! Courtney posted about her first sock bun experience yesterday and Alyssa posted about said bun a few days ago – and frankly, I was jealous. My hair grows at the rate of molasses – but I wanted a perfect bun, too! Wahh! So I tried it, and obviously my hair couldn’t cover all of the sock. So I cut the sock in half, and it worked!

#6 McDonald’s coffee. IMO, it’s simply the best. I like it hot, with a pump of sugar free vanilla. It’s my Friday treat 😉

#7 Snacky Lunches Lunches like these are my favorite because I get to eat several different things. Just having a sandwich doesn’t do it for me. Also, this type of lunch takes longer to eat, which is always a plus!

Have a wonderful weekend, folks! Catch ya later! 😉

Let’s chat – What’s one thing you’re loving lately?

    Congrats on the sock bun! :)
    It looks like we both use the same amount of weights for BP – awesome.
    Your snack plate is SO right up my alley.
    I’m totally diggin’ Instagram.
    I’ve had horrible luck with Micky D’s coffee.
    And I love the photo of you and Cory.
    Ok, I’m finished now :)

      Thank you! I was so determined after I saw your post!
      I tried to use a big plate for the chest track this morning. I am currently regretting that decision.
      Snack plates are where it’s at.
      Instagram makes my dull photos look cool, so I adore it.
      BAD LUCK WITH Micky D’s coffee?! Come to VA. I’ve never had a bad cup! (Totally legit reason to make a trip)
      Thanks! He’s a handsome guy.
      Have a great weekend! :)

    Snacky lunches are my fave! Totes agree that a sandwich isn’t sufficient- plus, a sandwich using GF bread is tiny, I’d need like 3 to be full haha 😛

    What I’m currently loving: unsweetened coconut, oats w/ cottage cheese, and egg pizzas!

      I use silly 80 calorie slices of bread, which is stupid because then I just want to eat two. What’s the point? Hahaha :)

    I love that the sock bun is coming back, I used to do it all the time in middle school! haha Lately I am loving Winston-Salem weather…it is absolutely perfect right now!
