High Five Friday #97

by Meg on December 20, 2013

Oh, how quickly plans can change…

Remember how excited I was for Sunday to come? Well, it came a whole lot sooner than I expected!

Due to storm warnings, anyone with a flight leaving on Sunday was advised to change their flight. So, last night at 10:00 PM Eddie and I had our flights changed to this morning at 7:00 AM!

At 10:00 last night we had nothing packed as we planned on doing all of our packing today and tomorrow before leaving for Saskatchewan on Sunday, so we frantically packed up all of our stuff and left London early this morning!

It was a mad rush and feels like a dream, but so much fun at the same time! We were playing our favourite tunes until the wee hours of the morning a got more and more excited about our early vacation plans!

We’re still not in Saskatchewan yet – I’m currently writing from the Calgary airport – but, couldn’t push High Five Friday to the wayside, so let’s get celebrating!

The following high fives were submitted to me via email. If you’d like to appear in next week’s HFF post please email me at adashofmeg@gmail.com :D I’d love to celebrate your success!

Mallory – “i have made it 25 days in a row without tracking food/calories which is huge for me since i have obsessed the last 4 years about it!”

Ashley – “I’d like to give myself a high five for successfully going pescatarian for a month straight. I tried a year ago and only made it 4 days. I am going strong and feel amazing about my new accomplishment. I’ve noticed a better balance with my body, digestion, energy, and it forces me to get a lot more creative for savory meals. I was worried I wouldn’t get enough protein in my diet as a distance runner by going pescatarian. But I am getting plenty from other natural sources like eggs, edamame, greek yogurt, and legumes. I was scared going pescatarian on a college student budget wouldn’t be possible without eating out of a tuna can but I have found that there are a zillion ways to whip up inexpensive fish like cod, pollock, and talapia. It’s possible to eat healthy, tasty, and inexpensive as a pescatarian.”

Cait – “This Friday I am giving myself a high five for finally finishing my last semester! looking forward to graduation this coming may and whatever else 2014 has to offer! :)”

Allison – “I donated blood for the first time!! Always had too low of iron, and have been trying the last 8 years on and off. So I was so excited to hear I could finally donate :) remember, it’s in you to give!”

Jan – “My high five Friday this week is doing another PR on Deadlifts this morning. I’ve been trying hard to just keep pushing how much I can lift and have really surprised myself that I keep being able to lift more.”

Miss Polkadot – “After a not-so-awesome start to the week I’m giving myself a High Five for being busy working on several articles for the newspaper at least one of which is likely to make the front page. Yes, it’s just a small local newspaper but still makes me happy.”

Kelsey – “I’ve been at my job for two weeks and am absolutely LOVING it! I am headed out with my family today on our first cruise over Christmas! And Christmas, the greatest holiday of the year is right around the corner! ”

and this week I will be giving myself a high five for noticing that my body needed a break from GPP workouts. It was hard to change up my routine because I love GPP so much and I’ve made great progress while doing it, but I did need a change and am very proud of myself for noticing that!

Thank you to everyone who participated in HFF this week! Your submissions make me so happy and I love hearing from each and everyone of you :D

If you didn’t submit a high five to me this week please let me know your high five for this week in the comment section below! :D

What will you be giving yourself a high five for this week?

Can’t wait to hear!

Love always,

Meg xo
