1. Anyone have any fun plans for Easter or just for celebrating the weekend? Tomorrow my nieces are coming over to paint Easter eggs…. love these family traditions. Then we’re planning to roast hot dogs and marshmallows around the fire pit. There will definitely be s’mores involved.

2. Who else is just a little excited about the Gone Girl movie coming out in October? The first trailer has been released and let me tell ya, it looks intense. Wow! Can’t wait! I’ve actually thought about rereading the book. It’s been so long since I’ve read it, that I’ve forgotten so much, but I hear the movie differs from the book. Anyone else considering a reread?

3. Speaking of intense books…. I just finished The Silent Wife. Be on the lookout for a review, this weekend. I finally read a book all the way through that didn’t bore me to tears. I’m out of my reading funk! And I’ve started After Her…. I’m only on chapter 2, but I’m thinking I’m on a reading roll!

4. What do you usually think about while you’re working out? If you’re a runner, then you have plenty of time to let those thoughts flow. This post is pretty funny…. have you ever thought any of those things? And this post is serious and actually gives you ideas of things to think about while exercising to keep yourself from getting bored. By the way, I mostly only read food, lifestyle or fitness blogs; but this is one blog that is mostly about positive thinking and I really enjoy it. Check it out!

5. I have a little something special for you, too! The people from Conscious Cleanse shipped me a couple of Conscious Cleanse books by mistake. Instead of asking me to send them back, they suggested that I give them to my lovely readers. Simply comment, telling me that you’d like to win a copy of the Conscious Cleanse book. I’ll pick two winners on Tuesday, 4/22. If you’d like to know more about the Conscious Cleanse, I have a whole page devoted to recipes and my thoughts here—> http://www.hungryhealthygirl.com/conscious-cleanse/ By the way, this book is the whole Conscious Cleanse plan, plus lots of Conscious Cleanse recipes.

Something to think about…..

What’s going on? Any fun plans this weekend?

Have you read Gone Girl, The Silent Wife or After Her? If so, tell me your thoughts.

Do you think about any certain thing while you’re working out? If I’m running, my mind definitely goes in 100 different directions, but if I’m lifting, I’m pretty focused on the weights.

Have a FAB Friday and a wonderful Easter weekend!!! Don’t forget to comment, to enter to win the Conscious Cleanse book!
