Five Things Friday 4.10

Happy Friday!  It is so good to be feeling somewhat back to normal after being really sick all week.  I am still hacking up a lung, and I sound like Kermit the frog, but I am at least able to get out of bed and get a few things done around the house.  I am hoping to have this thing kicked by the end of the weekend and be back to normal on Monday.  I really miss my workouts and I need to get caught up on my couch 2 5k training.  I saw my Nike's looking at me yesterday, I know they are wondering where I have been!  I can't wait until I can get back to my weekly workouts, I feel weak!  I am excited to get back to normal next week.

Today I decided to join in with Clare from Fitting It All In for a Five Things Friday post and join in her link up.  It's such a fun idea!

Five Fitness Things I Love (ie: want):

Squats, Weights and Protein Shakes tank from PrettyFit Athletics

 I am a PrettyFit Girl Ambassador and have a few of her tanks and they are so soft and comfy.  I love all the cute designs and sayings on them.  Jackie does a wonderful job with the quality and I always get my order really quickly.  I have had my eye on this one for a while, I think it might be time to order a new one.  Since I am an ambassador you can use the code Angelena10 for 10% off your order at PrettyFit Girl Athletics

Jawbone Fitness Tracker
I have been wanting to get a fitness tracker, but I can't seem to decide on one.  I tried a FitBit before, but it was too bulky to wear all the time and it bugged my wrist when I was trying to sleep.  This morning on Instagram my friend Ivanna from Petite Heartbeat posted a picture of her wearing the jawbone tracker.  I really like how small and sleek it is.  I love this blue one!  I am really considering getting this one to try out.  I like the features it offers and it connects with an app on your phone.  If I decide to get one I will let you know what I think!  You can get yours here:  Jawbone Fitness Tracker (affiliate link)

Soybu Lona Crop Pant

I have been eying these super cute Lona Crop Amaryllis capri from Soybu ever since I saw a review on another bloggers page.  I love capri pants to workout, run and do yoga in, but most of mine are black.  These are so cute with the pop of color and the heather grey.  I think I may need to add these to my spring workout collection.

Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit Shoes

Okay, okay I know I just got new pair of running shoes since I am training for my 5k.  It was really hard not to get another pair of the Free's because I love them for cross-training, but they were not giving me enough support on the treadmill, so the ones I chose have more support in the ankle and arch, which is where is need it most.  I love these Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit and I love this color...I may have to add these to my mothers day list!  Thanks Nike for always making such cute shoes!!

 Airabella Active Striped Tank

I found this super cute company, Airabella Active on Instagram.  I love all their cute tops, but this one stands out because it is cute enough to wear in and out of the gym.  It looks super comfy!  Now that spring is here I like to find tanks I can workout in, throw a light jacket over and head out to run errands.  The bonus....they are having a sale right now and this tank is only $6.99!

Five Things Making Me Happy

The fact that I am almost back to my normal self and should be able to workout again starting Monday!  I really do miss my workouts!

My weekend Plans with my family and friends!  I am hoping that it warms up a bit so me and the little one can get outside and play.  We are excited for bubbles, sidewalk chalk and bike rides.  Then we are celebrating my sister in laws birthday, so it's always fun to get together with my family.

The fact that today is National Siblings Day!  I am the oldest of 4 kids and I love my brothers and sister!  My 2 youngest siblings will be getting married soon, so I am looking forward to those family weddings!

Being organized!  I bought a cute planner and it is helping me to stay on track with my blogging and link ups.  It feels good to be organized!
