Friday Favorites: So Many Things

While this has been a long week (and I still work the whole weekend at the gym …), it’s been a great week! Or at least a very motivating week. Here are some of my favorite parts. (:

My first favorite is the fact that I FINALLY put up a YouTube video (coincidentally about my June Favorites so it fits right in here). This is something that I’ve wanted to do for over a year, but I’ve been too chicken. It’s not the best video, but it sparked some excitement and passion out of me so I’m hoping to stick with it!

My next favorite is the fact that I had the most productive day this past Monday. I took off at my full-time job, slept in a tiny bit, cleaned up my place, went to the gym and spent the afternoon working on my Ireland trip, my blog and YouTube channel. It was so inspiring! It was so empowering to do something that I’m passionate about. It was the best Monday yet!

My Monday

OOOOH and I got a Harry Potter shirt. YES. New favorite shirt, check.

My next favorite has to do with food. 1) Because I love food and 2) because I’ve been complaining for weeks during my Workout Wednesday posts that I’m sick of plain ground turkey. I made Skinny Cheeseburger Quinoa Skillet and Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas. Oh. My. GOOD GOD. They’re both sooooooo good!

Also, Quest bars – yum. (: They get me through life.

Quest Bars

I am absolutely IN LOVE with Grape Spark, so I got another box of it plus some more catalyst. I worked from home this morning and the FedEx man came with Advo-goodies and the UPS guy brought me the Zella leggings that everybody blabs about, so I got some during the Nordstrom sale. Deliveries are like presents from myself! Thanks, self!


And finally, my favorite is the gym. I really never thought that the gym would be a favorite of mine, but I’ve been loving it lately. Plus, in my opinion, my gym is the best ever. I got in some legs last night and some arms this morning. I can barely move, but MUSCLES! (Also, needed to burn off the three servings of ice cream I had last night …)

Those are my favorites this week! Linking up with Heather.

Anyone else a Spark fan?
What about Harry Potter? I’ve been re-watching the movies and re-reading the books. I’m in the full HP swing of things lately.

    I love Quest bars to the point where I try to limit how much I buy them because a.) they’re kind of expensive and b.) I will want to eat mostly Quest bars and nothing else. But yes, they’re awesome!
    YES to Harry Potter. I’m a total Harry Potter lover and have been reading the books since after first grade. Your shirt is amazing!
    Have a fabulous weekend, Jessie!

      Haha, YES! I’m the same with Quest bars! In fact, the store I go to buy them was like “You’re going to turn into a Quest bar!” Thanks, Ellen! 🙂

    • Jessie says:

      YES, me too! I remember making my mom take me to a Dennys after the midnight book release and I read as much of it there as I could. 🙂 Love HP

    • Jessie says:

      It’s my dream location, too! I’ve wanted to go since I was little, so I’m super excited. 🙂 Thanks for following!

    Quest bars, yes! I’m hooked on the peanut butter supreme ones & really need to just buy a box already. I need to try Spark! I keep saying that so I need to just buck up buy it already. I think I still have your email you sent about it.

    • Jessie says:

      Oh man, I haven’t tried those!! I’ve heard they’re good! And I have a couple different flavors – Grape, Fruit Punch and I might have a Mango Strawberry left. Let me know if you’d like to try some of mine before you buy if you want. 🙂

    I admit – I had (okay asked nicely) that my husband included Quest Bars into my birthday present back on the 10th. Those babies are just so good. What’s your favorite? I think mines a tie between the mint chocolate chunk and double chocolate chunk.

      SO good! Us Jessie’s think alike. 🙂 My favorite is the s’mores flavor followed closely by the cookies n’ cream one. I’ve heard the PB flavored ones are good, too. I need to branch out and try some other kinds!
