The Girl's Got Sole - Friday 5

TGIF, it’s finally Friday! Even better, I’ve got a three-day weekend ahead since I get Memorial Day off from work. The only unfortunate thing is, the weather forecast is calling for a wet, rainy holiday weekend here in Central Florida. I just hope I can get my run in on Saturday morning at least.

Comic book movies. I finally watched Guardians of the Galaxy one and two this week, as well as Black Panther. Loved all three movies. Now, I want a baby Groot! Guardians is definitely a fun one! Black Panther was very well done, loved the action and hope they make more in the series. I never read either comic book, but I would love to check them out, as I’m a fan.

Found money. Three months ago, when I was in Publix shopping, I found $40 on the floor. I turned it into customer service because that’s a lot of money. They took my information and said if no one claimed it, that I could come back and it was mine. I went back a couple of days ago, and no one had come forward. I’m now $40 richer. Figured I will save it for a rainy day or something.

Weight loss update. As of this week, I’m down another pound! That’s just over 4lbs total weight loss. Getting closer to my weight loss goal! I’m now 2.4lbs from 130 pounds. I would love to hit my best maintained weight of 125lbs, but I will be happy with 128lbs. I already feel better and lighter. I’m sure this is going to help my running this season.

OWYN protein drinks. I had the opportunity to try out a new protein drink called OWYN. They are vegan plant-based protein with an amazing taste. They are made with pea, organic pumpkin and flaxseed ingredients delivering 9 essential amino acids. The protein drinks come in three flavors, Dark Chocolate, Cold Brew Coffee, and Vanilla protein varieties. My favorite by far is the Cold Brew Coffee flavor, it’s perfect in the morning to start off the day. They also make protein powder in Dark Chocolate, Vanilla, Matcha, Tropical and Strawberry & Banana protein flavors. I have rarely loved a vegan protein as much as I love Vega, but this one is a new favorite! Check it out online here.

Training season is beginning. The new season of Orlando Galloway is kicking off in 8 days! I’m looking forward to seeing what the new season brings. Also, I will officially start some speed training for the Peachtree Road Race next month. I’m easily able to run a 10k, but I’d to get in some track work to help me do my best on race day.

  1. Oooh! How nice to find $40. I feel sorry for whoever lost it, but you did the right thing and got rewarded for it.

    Groot is also in Avengers Infinity War — seriously, what character wasn’t? — but no longer a baby.

    Congrats on the weight loss! It always helps the running.

  2. I thought I was going to have to work for Memorial Day! But I don’t, so I am excited to have a picnic with family. That’s awesome that you found some money! I get excited when I find some in a pants pocket or coat I haven’t worn in awhile.

  3. That’s really nice of you to turn in the money, but even better that the store rewarded you when no one claimed it!!

  4. I love Galloway, it’s definitely the best fit for me. I dunno, maybe save it for a race? That’s always fun.

  5. It is TOTALLY a Kool-Aid, these Marvel movies! LOL! Thanks, Janelle I love feeling better with some weight lost.

  6. If it was a dollar or change, I wouldn’t have, but that’s a lot of money. And, I felt like someone maybe lost their grocery money or something.

  7. Wow, $40 is a lot of money. I don’t know if I would have turned it in. Or maybe I would have? 🙂

    I want to see Black Panther as well. I finished reading A Wrinkle in Time and want to see the movie as well. I need to plan for it once I am on summer break.
