The Weekend In Pictures!

Happy Monday! This weekend was pretty calm although I did get a chance to see a few friends. It’s been a rough couple of days lately so seeing some familiar faces was definitely uplifting!

Nothing like waking up on Saturday morning to the sounds of Snowflake throwing up in the living room. Y’all, there’s never a dull moment in our house. I used my boot to cover the baking soda I used to clean it up, lol.

After our lovely wake up call, we started off our morning with some breakfast! I couldn’t agree more with this coffee cup.

I planned to go to a mid-morning yoga class but I had a few minutes to spare. I stopped by my gym to pick up a shirt and it was so nice to see my friend! My membership is on hold while my back gets better so I was so happy to catch up.

My friends have an organization called Fitness In The Loop which is an information hub for all free fitness events around the city of Houston. They sponsored an event for an up and coming yoga studio. Yoga at a bar was a first for me but it was awesome!

After yoga, I picked up this awesome book to read. Shut Up and Run is a great book written by Peloton instructor Robin Arzon. There’s something about her that’s just so inspiring and this book definitely gets me motivated to get out and run!

This is one of the passages that just got me fired up and ready to hit the pavement.

After some time reading, Jordan and I played Battleship! We have a small collection of board games and we love to bring them out during rainy days.

I received an awesome makeup sample from Influencer. I’m a HUGE highlighter fan so this primer is perfect for me. It provides a subtle glow for everyday wear!

After making sure it fit in our budget, I went ahead and reserved my Peloton Tread! I was floored when they announced this and I’m so excited to be able to get one!

Sunday morning was pretty normal. After church, Jordan and I went back home and caught up on shows. We’re fasting one meal a day for six weeks along with our church. We try to stay busy during lunch time and we don’t really notice it anymore.

We took Snowflake for a walk around the neighborhood. The weather was in the teens earlier this week and it was in the 70s on Sunday! Gotta love Texas, y’all!

Jordan and I went for a drive and stopped at Buc-ee’s. I found these Sour Sloth Gummies and I had to have them. I’m not a HUGE fan of sweets but I get the urge once in a while.

Did you do anything exciting this weekend?

What I Listen To While I Run!

I’ve been working on adding back the miles and getting my legs used to fatigue and recovery. My goal for this month is to build endurance and to get in a few days of spin AND run so my legs can get used to that “spent” feeling that I experience at the end of races. By being comfortable with the uncomfortable, progress gets easier!

The Weekend In Pictures!

Well, the chilly weather didn’t last too long in Houston. The sun came out over the weekend and we are back to highs in the 60s this week. As someone who LOVES the cold, I’m a bit sad. However, I’m glad those up in the north are thawing out!

I started Saturday off with a run. It was still cool enough for pants so I was pretty happy.

My Goals For 2018!

It’s officially the last Friday of the year! 2017 has been such a good year to me. It wasn’t without some difficulties but I’ve made so many friends and have grown in ways I wouldn’t have expected. I’ve already signed up for some races in the next couple months and I’m ready to get started in this season of training. Here are a few goals I have for the new year:

Three Signs You Need A Rest Day

If you have a set training plan, chances are that you may have a rest day scheduled each week. When you’re aiming for a running or workout streak, a rest day is certainty not high up on the list. If you’re doing your own programming and picking your workouts, you may not think you need a rest day. As we strive to reach our goals, it’s easy to believe that more is better. However, to continue to grow stronger our bodies need rest. Here are my three signs that your body needs a rest day.

Getting In Shape Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive

We’re just a few weeks away from the dreaded New Year’s Resolutions. It’s easy to get a bit fluffy around the holidays because of all the parties and all the amazing food. I know that gym membership sales skyrocket in January. However, these can be very expensive and if you’re just starting out on your fitness journey, you may not want to drop so much money right off the bat.

How To Stay In Your Own Lane

You may have heard the saying before “Stay in your own lane.” I’ve heard it in terms of starting your own business but honestly it applies to all parts of your life. With Facebook and Instagram, it’s so easy to fall into the comparison trap and start to feel like we are missing out on life experiences or simply that we are not good enough. I’m here to tell you that all of that is a big piece of do-do.
