Five on Friday

It's Friday y'all and thankfully we made it to the end of the work week! Friday also means my favorite post of the week. Five on Friday! So here we go.
One. I finally broke down and purchased a new pair of  workout leggings. I am so glad I did just in time for the "polar vortex". I picked up a pair of Wonder Under pants at Southpoint last weekend and have been wearing them almost daily since then (I promise, not to work!). My previous pair of Luluemon pants were destroyed by my cute puppy when he decided to make them into his new chew toy. 

Two. There were some amazing deals at the Lilly Pulitzer sale was this week. I am beyond thrilled to have gotten a dress and a top in one of my favorite prints. 

Three. I stumbled across this article on the myths of how the brain works and how they have no place in a classroom. Unfortunately, so many teachers  have fallen for these myths. Students are not solely aright-brained or left-brained learner or just a visual, auditory or kinesthetic learner. Each student has the ability to learn through numerous ways.  Ultimately, education practices should be "based on policies, initiatives and interventions that have been tried, tested and shown to work has the prospect of offering our children the best possible start to their lives."  Yay, research! 

Four. Today I start Advocare's 24 Day challenge. I have learned the hard way that you can't out train a bad diet. In my journey to get my diet on track I am going to challenge myself to 24 days of clean eating and no cheats. Do I think these pills are a quick fix to my weight loss? No way. What I do hope is that they will supplement the work I am putting in through diet and exercise. I also found an awesome meal plan to go with it here
Five. This Bible verse sums up my desires for 2014. It is going to be a great year and I can't wait to see where His path takes us! 

Hope y'all have a great Friday!!

  9. I love the Wonder Unders! I started w. capris and got a pair of the leggings last year. They're perfect to double as thicker legging w. boots & cute outfits, too. Good luck w. the Advocare challenge. I've contemplated trying it a couple times but haven't made the jump yet. Look forward to hear more about it. Happy weekend!

  11. What is Advocare? I've heard about it, but am honestly a little too lazy to figure it all out. Curious to know what you think of it!
