Thank God its a 4 Day Week

Hi All!

I hope you all had a fabulous memorial day weekend. I had a real relaxing one up at Cam’s lake house

but I was also very excited to come home to this munchkin

All and all I needed the rest. I even got a few runs in while I was up there, which was nice, but I didn’t put to much pressure on myself. Although maybe I should have… since it’s not looking like I’ll be able to run tonight…. because I have homework.

…yes homework. What? It was only my second day of my internship 😦 So far as  to report its tough, really tough. It’s a lot to learn really fast, everyone says I’ll catch on and get the hang of it and I sure hope they are right. I hate feeling like a moron. Although I will say, everyone is super duper nice. I think they all judge me because I’m constantly eating. And since I get frustrated I over hydrate so I can take bathroom breaks, whoops 😉

Anyways I went back to Crossfit last night after a whole week of being sick/ having a hurt back. It felt great. It was pretty much a new group of people too and I loved them all. We did “Diane” which is 21-15-9 reps of deadliest & handstand pushups  per round. My time was 3:13 which isn’t amazing compared to the best but it isn’t too shabby 😉 I probably could have cut down my time because I remember taking a breather.

Hope your week at work is better than mine!

PS. at least the clothes are working out great 🙂

The Last Hurrah

Hi Hi Hi!
Hope you all are doing well. I’m a stress case packing, I’m going to the lake tomorrow for the weekend 🙂 Sun? Jet Skis? Beach? Relaxation? YES PLEASE!

Once I get up there it’ll be care free zone. But, for now I’m freaking out.. actually I’m just like this…

But fo’real. Only I’m packing all my own food. The perks of having a food allergy. Which is why I’m writing this post.  Many of us sacrifice our diets when we go away. I unfortunately cannot just forget about my food allergies and go all out, unless I want to spend my time getting sick (buzz kill alert). It was really hard to get things together. My boyfriends mom asked what I can and can’t eat, which was so sweet. But its also the preparation that is a stress case. So I went to two grocery stores and bought enough food for an entire week, naturally. I’m bringing my bananas for breakfast, turkey sandwich supplies for lunch, along with veggies salad, and stir fry for dinner and countless snacks 🙂 That way I can relax that I know my food is safe. I felt really rude when I first started this process. Then I realized its not me turning down their food, its me relieving them of my food burden. So we can all relax all weekend.

….hopefully my big batch of sangria will help too 😉

Have a fabulous weekend all!

Goal Setting

Hi All!

As summer gears in full force I think its time to reset those goals, let see if I meet them by the end of the summer?

1. Write on Here more: I really love sharing things with you all, and I want to get better about that!
2. Have a cute work wardrobe : I am starting to compile this now, and I want to love it, since come next year I’ll hopefully have a full time job, ps. if anyone has any suggestions where to get said cute work clothes, let me know, I’m in struggle city with that

3. Pull Ups. Yes pull ups, I’m back at Crossfit, and I want my freaking pull-up, without a band.

4. To have a happy fun filled summer, and a tan, and pictures to prove it must take more pictures

5. To learn as much as I can from my internship

6. Organized! Fake it until I make it, you have got to see my new planner, I’ll do a big post on it I promise!

7. Cut down on sugar, yikes this has totally gotten out of control!

Seven good solid goals, lets get to it!

Also my summer anthem:

Overcoming Yourself.

I’m just going to cut to the chase. You must get out of your own way.

So many times I myself get in my own way and I prevent myself from reaching my own goals. My fear, my time constraints, my sheer desire to be lazy. However, every time I over come it and am Ms. Productive, I have never felt better and accomplished.

We Can Do This.

Start visualizing your goals.

Figure out your limits and where you are going to need to ask for help.

And get up and get go get them. I’m serious, this is the most important step, just get up and go.

Dream Big, Move big.

Home, but not settled

Hi All,

Its been a while huh? I’m home, finals are done, and I have a few weeks to work part time and lay low. Recover, rest, and of course get my toosh to the beach with my kindle.

So what have I been doing since I’ve been home? Well a lot of it involves, moving a bunch of useless junk and sorting through what I actually need, what is trash, and what I’m donating. So far I have about two huge black trash bags to donate, so proud! As I’m getting settled, I’m getting back into the swing of my normal level of workouts and healthy eats. The workouts have been much easier to adjust than the eats. However I’m cooking up a bunch of stuff tomorrow! 🙂 Pictures to come!

As I prepare for the big girl work world so many things are crossing my mind. Am I going to be able to fit everything in? I need a lunch box. What exactly is business casual? How early do I need to leave for work? What to do for a gym membership? Ah all the thoughts. So as I’m sorting this through I’ll be posting daily with my cramming in my summer body. I am luck enough I work hard all year that finals week I feel kills me but I bounce back so quick I’m not too too too worried! I’m all about feeling my best!

Off to Bed!

xoxo

Hi All!

I just wanted to share something with you all! Especially during this time of the year for me, yay finals! As we all interview for jobs, set summer fitness goals, embark on a new journey these words I saw will help.

 

Stuff is hard, but hard work pays off. Its much less satisfying as an accomplishment if no hard work went into it.

We can will do it. We’ll get through it. And Most of all We’ll rock whatever it is ‘s face off.

 

Thats all. Night!
