Holy cats, everyone, its been two weeks since I posted last. TWO WHOLE WEEKS. That is how crazy busy my days have been flying by! I barely have enough time to read the blogs I subscribe to! Eeks! It’s time to download some awesome memories and highlights of the last two weeks here!
Let’s see then… where to begin…
So this is predominantly why I’ve been so busy lately. I’ve been running, biking, teaching Body Pump, cycling, INSANITY-ing, and lifting more than I have in a looong time. It’s a blast, but it sure is exhausting at times. Yes, even enough to keep me from blogging 😉
Here are some workout highlights!
Teaching Pump ❤
Swim, swim, swim!
Fun runs with my dad!
Running with my sister!
Personal Best at the Festa Italiana 5K! Such a great route!
I’ve cut out caffeine, guys. Yeah, I said that. No coffee, no energy drinks, no nothin’. This is my second full week, and I actually feel great! I don’t have any heartburn (often a side effect of drinking coffee for me), I sleep like a log every night, and I don’t have any caffeine withdrawal feelings. I’ve been drinking tea and lots of water, along with gingerale thrown in there too 🙂
I’ve also been eating TONS of salads lately. Almost everyday for lunch, and sometimes for dinner too. Really trying to up my veggie count!
Can’t forget my favorite fruit 😉
After our Festa Italiana run, my dad and I split a rice ball. Hallelujah delicious!!
Recent grocery haul, for your review 🙂
While I include EVERYTHING from Fitness and Food in my “fun” category, here are some other highlights from the last two weeks!
Went to a book signing and discussion of Elizabeth Gilbert’s newest book The Signature of All Things. It was so much fun! I seriously love this lady, her insight into the world of writing and just living life to its fullest. I’m about 1/3 of the way through the book now, and cannot wait to see how it ends! (Also have her four other books en route as we speak to read this summer!)
I haaaaaaaad to include a picture of my favorite Gus, right?!
Such a fun night at a jazz and rock concert with my family a week ago. They had massive hula hoops for everyone to test out, so obviously, I showed off my “mad skillz”. I obviously had a blast there 🙂
Saw a hilarious cover band at Festa Italiana with my dad, who sang so many Beach Boy songs, it made me wanna go surfin’ (surfin’ USA)!
Oh, and I decided one day, I’m buying a Vespa. Yep, and probably a matching one for my sister. So we can traipse the tiny streets of Europe when we move there. We can dream, right? (And make it happen…)
Have a beautiful, beautiful Monday everyone! I’ll be writing again soon, pinky promise ❤
Peace & Love
