Happy High Five Friday!
I received quite a few high five submissions this week, which makes me so happy! Thank you so much for all of your support! I'm so excited to get this party started!
Sarah – "I want to give myself a High Five this week for listening to my doctor and going two whole weeks using my crutches. I am recovering from a stress fracture in my foot that I developed while training for a half marathon. I have never been a good injured runner; often skipping out on whatever recommendation my doctor gives me for recovery. But I'm taking this seriously this time and used my crutches for the entire two weeks. I'm halfway to go until I get this boot off!"
Molly – "I want to give my self a HIGH five for five reasons this week. 1) I started a job at Starbucks (43 hours this week + Babysitting) and I still managed to post everyday on my blog (Talk about time management!!) 2) Having Clara Hughes sign me an autograph after a friend met her and told her about my speech and blog 3) Spending a lot more time with my Mom 4) Being able to eat foods without looking at the nutritional labels 5) Decorating my house with construction paper cutouts for Halloween (Candy Corn, Bats, Witches Hats, Pumpkins and Ghosts) and finishing my Peacock Homemade Costume!!"
Eiren – "I was interested in giving myself a high five for my first ever "vlog" this week! I did it to sort of raise awareness for Breast Cancer. I said I would do burpees per like on my page, sort of under the notion that if women and families can go through treatments then I can do some burpees. Then i asked people to see how many they could do! I'm not sure if anyone else actually did any!? But it was definitely out of my comfort zone to do a vlog for the first time!"
Alek – "I'm giving myself a high five this week for finally SEEING progress. I used to be so embarrassed of my twig arms but after lifting only the past month I am seeing actual growth! And other people are commenting on it too!"
Nadja – "I finally faced and made changes to one of my biggest health and nutrition problems this week!"
Meghan – "I actually have two high fives for myself this week:
Corinne – "I was away for the last 6 days on vacation and I want to HF myself for taking the time to relax, not just physically and mentally, but also enjoying whatever foods my body was craving (kind of like your post this week). I had probably a lot more than my fair share of cold treats (I was in hot weather), but came back not only having not gained weight – but actually lost a little excess weight. HF to listening to your body! "
