Woweee! How is it Friday already!? I hope you all had a great week, wait, who am I kidding? I know you had an awesome week – there are so many high fives to give out this week, so we better get started! :)
Kelly sent in two high five submissions this week! (Thanks Kelly!)
I'm giving myself a "High Five" this week for fitting into a dress I haven't be able to wear in YEARS and wearing said dress on a date-night with my hubby… Our first date night in almost a year!
I'm also giving myself a High Five this week for starting a new link-up party for bloggers – called "Healthy Living Thirsty Thursday!" Each week, bloggers can post a new juice or smoothie recipe and I'll link them up at the bottom of my post. I even created a logo and Twitter hashtag #hltt – here's a link to this week's post and explanation: http://nosugarsweetlife.com/content/healthy-living-thirsty-thursday-peach-pie-juice
Alina says, I finally talked about guilt and the effects it had on me during my ED period. Now, I'm learning everyday to accept myself and love my body! Here's the link to the post http://keepsmilingandlovelife.blogspot.com/2012/07/no-guilt-no-more.html
Jessica says, I wanted to give myself a high five because I made my own 6-week training program! I stopped using a trainer (Tara) due to a lot of unpredictability in my new career and not being able to fully commit to one of her programs. But, I wanted to make a commitment to my ob fitness, so I made my own plan! I love it and had so much fun making it!

What are you giving yourself a high five for this week? As you can see from above, anything counts as a high five! You don't have to find a cure for cancer or make it to the Olympics – little triumphs are high fives, too! They all matter and everything deserves to be celebrated which is why I try so hard to incorporate a variety of different people every Friday <3
This week, I am giving myself a high five for being asked to participate in another leadership opportunity for my university. Just yesterday I was asked if I'd like to be interviewed about my leadership (and blog!) Of course, I accepted the offer! I am so thrilled and grateful for another wonderful opportunity! :)
Have a great Friday everyone!
