Five Friday Favorites 12/6/2013

Really busy today and been kind of an underwhelming week workout-wise but I did manage to get in a 5K run this morning before work. I'm starting to feel like I'm getting sick so some extra rest, apple cider vinegar shots (party animal, I know), and some tea are in order tonight! Don't forget about the 'Tis the Season campaign still going on with a chance to win a Kooshoo headband until Sunday-just show tell us how you are treating yourself this holiday season and mention I'm Fit Possible on social media! 

By the way, I finally got my ring out of my Prize Candle which I reviewed as a great holiday gift a few weeks ago. It ended up only being worth $10, but I think it's really pretty!


Here's a look at five things I'm loving this week!

Favorite at-home workout: 
Turkey Day Pyramid Burner by Nut Butter Runner


Turkey Day may be over, but this workout is sure to get your heart rate pumping! I did this yesterday when I was short on time, and it definitely got me sweating fast! 

Favorite holiday recipe to take to parties: 
Mini Santa Hat Cheesecakes from Baked by Rachel


I don't know about you, but with the shortened holiday season I've got a lot of parties and events packed into the next few weekends. These mini Santa cheesecakes are adorable, festive, and sure to be a hit at your holiday party. I will definitely be making these for one of the many parties I'm attending!. 

Favorite recipe to try out this weekend: 
Carrot Cake juice from Fit and Free with Emily


My boyfriend and I are currently borrowing a juicer so we are stocked up with veggies and fruit to start juicing this weekend. This carrot cake juice looks like a super delicious juice to start with!

Favorite song on repeat this week: 
The Wire by HAIM

I was lucky enough to catch some of the set of this awesome band made up of sisters from L.A. at Bonnaroo this summer. This song is so catchy, and I'm a sucker for some good girl rock. They were even on SNL a couple of weeks ago, and you can tell how much fun they were having!

Favorite grocery store find: 
Silk Soymilk in Pumpkin Spice


I bought this around Thanksgiving at the grocery store and sadly used the last few drops yesterday in my coffee. It has a delicious pumpkin flavor and was great on it's own or in coffee or oatmeal in the morning.  Hopefully I can find another carton!

Don't forget my Beats by Dre giveaway ends Tuesday!

What are your favorite finds from this week? Do you have any great juice recipes to recommend me?


  1. Love all these favourites! So many different things I've never seen before. Do you juice a lot?

    1. Thanks so much! I have never actually juiced myself before but I like buying fresh juices from time to time (but it's expensive!). We'll see how this goes :)

  2. Those little cheesecakes are adorable! (And delicious looking!) I hope your vinegar shots help you feel better. Those have worked for me in the past. :)

    1. Thanks, the ACV taste doesn't even bother me much anymore!

  3. We need to fit in some froyo to add to friday favorites ;) Those cheesecakes are so cute!

  4. I love, love, love HAIM!

    1. We have similar taste in music. SO good though.

  5. I'm a big fan of Nut Butter Runner! Love her recipes. Pumpkin Spice Silk? No way! Where diid you find it?

    1. I do too-she's fabulous! I found my local Harris Teeter-just a regular grocery store!

  6. I need to find that Silk Pumpkin Spice!
