Friday's Fave Five ~ 1.17.14

I'm linking up with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story to share five favorites from this week. You can join us!
1. My son, Case, turned 14 this week. In the last few months he has really hit a growing spurt and is starting to look more like a young man and less like a boy. We took him out to eat at his favorite steakhouse for his birthday. He ordered a huge ribeye (since we only let him do that on his birthday) and ate the whole thing. I love my boy!
2. My mom's birthday is the same day as Case's. My mom is a wonderful lady, and I'm thankful for the love and support she has unconditionally given me my entire life. She's a terrific grandma, too!
 
3. Steven and I enjoyed a breakfast date and visited a few antique stores. We have fun searching for treasures together.
 
4. Hope and Case both had basketball games this week, and Case's team scored a victory. They have a young team and a first-year coach, so every win means a lot to them.
 
5. I started exercising regularly and changed the way I eat back in September. In the last four months, I've lost 15 pounds, and my PBF (percent body fat) is down 7%. I'm pretty much right where I need to be with my weight now, and I think I'm in the best shape I've been in since high school. Those 6 a.m. workouts are rough but so worth the effort.

Congratulations for reaching your weight goals and taking steps to be more fit!

Happy birthday to your son and mom!

Breakfast out and antiquing sound like such fun.

Ok, I think it is a sign that I am supposed to get back on my workout plan. I have been off for several months due to a neck injury but I have been feeling great for a month now. I put back on most the weight I lost and you are the third FFF who has mentioned working out. LOL!
This is my first visit here and I look forward to getting to know you better! God Bless and hope your weekend is great!
The only picture that loaded for me what that of your son. He is a very handsome young man and must make you very proud. Our son really went through a growth spurt at the same age, he is almost 16 now. {{sign}} say it ain't so! :)

Birthdays are such fun celebrations. And how cool for your mom to share a birthday with her grandson. Lovely photo of your son.

Congrats on achieving your weight/fitness goals.
