The Weekend In Pictures!

This weekend was spent mostly on my own! I used it as a weekend of recovery, plenty of sleep, and delicious foods!

On Saturday I attended the Wanderlust festival in town. The first part was a 5k run!
I arrived a bit early to set up my yoga mat and check in so I stopped and got some body art too!
The event was held near downtown so it was neat to see the sun rise behind all the buildings!
After the run, I changed for yoga and meditation!
I was starved from all the activity that morning so I stopped by for lunch! A friend introduced me to this place and I’m obsessed!
I got a small Poke bowl but it was SOOOOO GOOD!
I went for my Sunday morning walk with Snowflake since Jordan was still out of town and would be returning that evening.
My mom wanted to buy me some groceries and made me get my own cart. So much food!
Meal prep Sunday was successful with these delicious salads for the week!
I watched football while I waited for Jordan to get home. Our Chiefs didn’t do so good this week. 🙁

This weekend was such a blast! Sometimes, I think it’s great to get a weekend to relax and just have some alone time.

How did you spend your weekend?

Little did I know that there are some benefits of yoga for runners!

At the beginning of this year, I started incorporating different types of workouts. I will forever enjoy running but I was starting to get burned out. I began following the Tone It Up community and began to fit in High Intensity Interval Training into my workout schedule. The fast paced full body workouts were a major shock to my body. Yes I was sore and some days were HARD but I began to notice muscle definition. Continue reading How To Get Fit Without Getting Bored
