Friday Finds.

Wait, it’s Friday already?!

This week absolutely flew by for me, and I ain’t mad about it. I had two super fun fitness events this week after crazy busy days at work, so that might have something to do with it! It’s safe to say I’m happy it’s the weekend, though 🙂

 I’m going to be honest here, I seriously thought Wednesday was Friday, so it couldn’t have been all that bad of a week…

Nonetheless, I’ve always been a huge fan of the weekend so TGIF! And Friday the 13th to be exact. I don’t know what it is about May, but it always seems to make me extra happy. I even treated myself to sunflowers on Sunday just ’cause (and they’re still alive and kickin’ 5 days later)! I only have 3 weeks until graduation and my vacation to Hawaii so I’ve been feeling particularly motivated to eat healthy and stick to my workout plan…sue me for wanting a #bikinibody. I have a few exciting plans for the weekend and am hoping to spend some time outside. Possibly with bloody mary’s…I hope you are, too 😉

Monday Motivation.

Hey y’all!

So I totally missed out on posting my usual Friday Finds last week (’cause it was cray), but because today is the start of both a new week and a new month, I feel like now is an appropriate time for a quick check-in. I was talking to a friend over coffee this morning about how January felt like a month of clarity almost, like all the chaos was just to get us pointed in the right direction for the rest of 2016. I don’t know about you, but I feel more motivated and focused than ever, and I can’t wait to see what February brings!

As for workouts, I tried a new class at a local studio here called FLIGHT and looooooooved it. It’s a mix of dance, cardio and yoga all set to EDM music and i literally couldn’t walk for 3 days afterwards. I’m totally hooked though, I’ve already gotten my 5-class pack and can’t wait to go back! I’m also loving the recent workouts from the Tone It Up girls like the one below. I still have a few leftover pounds from the holidays to get rid of if ya know what I’m sayin…
