Kind of Fitness Friday + What I Love Right Now

Let's just say that being sick for a whole week didn't make for the most fit week.
But a not so bad one either.
Quite a few sleepless nights in there.
But then a few nights where I was in bed super early.
Vitamins not taken.
But lots of medicines to soothe symptoms and the antibiotic of course.
Exercise didn't happen like I would have wanted.
But then again I felt like garbage. And I did manage to fit in a few weight and stretch workouts when I felt up to it.
I did drink more water than anything.
And had an Arby roast beef sandwich and Dr. Pepper the day I went to urgent care because I was starving afterwards and Arby's was right there.
But that was the only soda for the week.

So not too bad for being sick.
I will cut myself some slack. :)

And just for fun today, I was inspired by *This Post* by Jen over at her It's My Life blog.
What I am Loving right now.
1. What I'm Wearing...
I got *These Boots* from Nordstrom recently. Super comfortable for such a high heel. Well, high for me that is. Thankfully, I had two gift cards saved up. I had been wanting a pair to go with some new pants I bought from Anthropologie (also with a gift card). I must be the queen of saving up gift cards!
Anyway, new boots for me.

2. What I'm Reading...

OK, technically, I have already finished reading this book, but I really want to talk about it.
I know, I know, everyone is talking about this book!
Mike bought it for me for Christmas upon my request, and lately I have to really want to read a book to buy it not just find it at the library. And I really wanted to read this book.
I find her so smart and funny. She is my age and I loved her stories from her younger years because I could relate to so many. Although, I guess I could relate to a lot of her stories she shared about being a mom as well. The design of this book is pretty fun with so many great photos and bits of old letters and other "scrapbook" type material. Very cool! I have to admit that I liked this book better than Tina Fey's who I also find hilarious. Anyway, it was a good read that was hard to put down and I really hated when it ended. She needs a sequel. :)

The actual books I am reading right now...
The first book was a little slow in the beginning and I almost gave up. But I hung in there and now it's starting to get interesting. I have pretty much read all the books in the JD Robb series by Nora Roberts and this one is a page turner for me. Reading as fast as I can to get to the end!

3. What I'm Watching...
Glee, could it be? Could you possibly have one me back for the last season. We will see. So far so good.
I have such a love/hate relationship with this show. And last season I completely hated it. There are so many poor messages in it at times. And so many bad things have happened to the characters that it seems enough already. So many poor story lines that just don't make sense.
But it almost seems as if they are finding their way back to what made this show fun to watch in the first place.
I hope so.

As for Sleepy Hollow, my must watch show of last season...
well I have to say it has almost lost me. It sounds like it went a bit off track this season for awhile there. So I am seriously behind in episodes. But from what I have been hearing through the grapevine, I might just want to start watching again.

In my to be watched queue on Netflix...The Walking Dead. I hear nothing but good things about it. But so far behind in that show, I would need a serious marathon weekend or something. Those just really don't happen.
Although I am rewatching Friends on Netflix, but those are only 22 or 23 minutes long. So I can knock one out while I eat lunch or fold laundry. :)

Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend!
And I will leave you with two fun Valentine ideas for kids to give to classmates that I found on Pinterest recently.
Both super cute and maybe an idea for the future. We are done with Valentine's for this year.

Happy Valentine's Day!
