Thinking Out Loud – Looove this Weather

I just can’t seem to get outside enough lately. The sun is out, the temperature is in the 60’s, and it finally feels like there ACTUALLY will be a summer coming through Wisconsin. Aaaaaaaaamen! I’m sooo looking forward to the days where I run after work, grill out with friends, and lay in the sun and read (or sleep). Just give me that tomorrow, please? 🙂 Thanks!


1. I have my Body Pump Training this weekend!!! After 9 hours on Saturday and 8 hours on Sunday, I will officially be certified to teach the class, and WOW am I super stoked for that. I started reviewing the workouts last night – Les Mills is soo well put together, and the trainers are so inspiring! Opening a new door in my life is kinda scary, but it’s so exciting… and I love working out… sooo, all good things, all good things 🙂

2. I just finished this challah bread loaf I bought on SATURDAY after my half marathon. #sorryimnotsorry. It was juuuuust delicious. Have you ever tried it? Because you need to…I luhhhh TJ’s.


3. On the topic of food… I made these AMAZING Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies last night. Eeee! They turned out so good. I love finding new ways to make desserts that are a- somewhat healthier, b- have no added sugar and c- are gluten free. My sister sent me the recipe and it totally was worth it. MAKE THEM.

4. So Wednesdays I always do legs, and lawwwwdy lawdy, I am sore today. I suppose I lifted heavier than I have in awhile (squats, dead lifts and lunges) but I didn’t expect to be THIS SORE. Probably because I went for a run after work yesterday AND went for a walk with my roommate after dinner. This weather, I’m tellin ya… I just can’t stay inside!


5. Trying to keep with positive thinking and loving myself, I have been pinning motivational quotes like CRAZY lately. Here are some of my favorites I have found… Hope you get motivated to love yourself and life too! 🙂 ❤

  1. This weather has been so wonderful! I mentioned it in my blog yesterday. And I did go out and read and soak up some sun this week, and I might again today. Love your motivational pins, I grabbed the proton one and I’m gonna follow you on Pinterest 🙂


  2. 😆 I cannot stop looking at that flying cat gif. Mesmerizing. And those chickpea cookies look strangely delicious to me right now. I’ve been on a serious chickpea kick lately and I haven’t been able to eat enough of them. That being said, it’d be nice to eat them in new ways. Definitely going to keep that in mind!


    1. You really should try them. While chickpeas are pretty bland/almost bitter on their own, after adding the peanut butter and honey… oh man! They’re so good.

      And yeah, the kitten is excited for Friday too 🙂 hahaha


  3. Congratulations on your 1/2 lovely lady! Isn’t it the best feeling ever?! Almost as satisfying as hanging the medal up on the wall 😉


    1. Completely agree 🙂 Sadly, this was a “cheapy” run, and we didn’t get medals haha. But it was definitely a victory almost PRing on my first run of the year! Now my next is May 3… gotta top it!
