5 X 5 For Saturday!

Today’s post idea comes straight from on of my favorite girls, Natalie! But first, lets recap last night shall we?  Last night was my high schools (I’m an alumni) biggest football game of the season.  Battle of the Bell against cross town rival Estancia.  We have a huge rivalry and even as alumni it’s fun to go back and get in the high school spirit again.  Unfortunately, we lost.  Only by two though, and not necessarily by player error more of a coaching error.  I was sitting in the stands screaming “I could coach this game better.”  Yes I do get into football, I have no shame!  Even though we lost I still had a great time catching up with old friends.  Say Hi to Shannon She’s an old friend but we’re still friends and see each other 5 or 6 times a week!  This morning I had the special treat of going out to breakfast with my Dad.  I’m fortunate enough that even though my parents are divorced I still live close to both my parents and see them often.  We had breakfast at Side Street Cafe and it is seriously the most adorable place ever!  There menu’s are handwritten on blue paper! Seriously how cute? The whole restaurant had a straight out of Texas feel and I was loving it! The food was delicious as well, and that’s the most important part right?  I went with the Denver scramble. 2 eggs, ham, bell peppers, and onions with a side of potatoes and of course toast! Such a good breakfast!  I’m full and happy! 🙂

2. New Girl

3. Criminal Minds

4. Law and Order: SVU

5. Football!  Does that count as a TV show?

5 songs that I sing at the top of my lungs when I’m driving in the car alone:

1.  Dirt Road Anthem by Jason Aldean

2.  Your Song by Elton John

3.  Drunk on You by Luke Bryan

4.  Any Song by Adele

5. Sparks Fly by Taylor Swift (Any T Swift song actually)

I listen to worship music on Sunday’s and find myself belting out those songs as well!  I look like a freak when I drive.

5 things I’m looking forward to this month:

1. HALLOWEEN.  Enough said, right?

2. Homecoming. College style!

3. My best friend Chelsea comes home!

4. Colder weather.  I know I say this AAAAALLL the time but really it’s starting to happen!

5. Paranormal Activity 4 comes out. (Yes, I’m that lame)

5 Healthy Living Goals:

1. Run a half-marathon. (Give in, right?)

2. Incorporate more strength training and make it a point to get to a BodyPump class once a week!

3. Continue with yoga.  I’m doing Courtney’s yoga challenge and the stretching is helping so much.  I really need to continue to make it a priority to get my booty there at least three times a week.  (Recap coming tomorrow!)

4. Run a sub 8 minute mile!  I’m not about speed for my half, I just want to finish it.  But I would really like to work on my speed for short distances.

5. Continue to focus on how I’m feeling not the number on the scale.

5 blogger friends that I can’t wait to meet in real life:

1. Natalie @Free Range Human

2. Carrie @Fitness and Frozen Grapes

3. Claire @Keeping up with Claire

4. Julie @Peanut Butter Fingers

5. Courtney @Sweet Tooth Sweet Life

  1. Kelsey, you’re so sweet! I’ve never been to California, so maybe a visit might happen eventually. 🙂

    Anytime a Taylor Swift song comes on while I’m driving, it’s inevitable that I’ll start singing along. I even saw her live when I studied abroad in London; that was a ton of fun! I also need to start brainstorming ideas for Halloween costumes …

  2. It’s a great place for a vacation, definitely put it on your list! 🙂 You did?! I’m jealous! I heard she’s phenomenal live! I’m a huge country fan and most of the country world can’t stand her but I think shes amazing! I’ve been brainstorming since June, I live for Halloween but now I just need to narrow down my choices…so many things to think about haha!!
