Life Lately 2.22.17

Hey friends πŸ™‚

I hope everybody is loving this warm Wisconsin weather – it is pretty refreshing and exciting isn’t it?? I have tried to spend as much time as possible outside, before we get back down in the 30’s and 40’s again this weekend. Β oh Spring, hurry up!

Just a quick life lately update. Essentially? Things are pretty amazingly terrific right now. Patrick and I celebrated Valentine’s Day with tacos. How perfect that it fell on TACO TUESDAY ❀ If there’s a heaven, we found it.

My yoga practice is becoming more and more influential in my life. I get on my mat every single day now, whereas I used to only jump on once or twice a week. I am trying new flows, new ways of getting into poses, and even achieving poses I’ve never hit before! (See mermaid below).

Half marathon training is going swimmingly too. I haven’t ACTUALLY trained for a half marathon in a really long time – I would just sort of throw together some “long runs” and a few mid-week runs until the race date, and HOPE that I could survive it. This season, I’m way more focused. And definitely determined to hit my mileage goals. I have been running every day for a month now, except Sundays πŸ™‚ Those are my rest/yoga days usually.

I even signed up for a full marathon this October. Pretty stoked! Lakefront Marathon in Milwaukee is my favorite, and I’m so excited to train again this summer and fall. I had some crazy FOMO last season when I saw my friends and others training and running in this race! Can’t wait to be part of this community again.

My sweet sweet puppy Baymax turns 1 next week. Yes, he’s spoiled every single day of his puppy life, but YES we will spoil him even more on his special day. We tell him every day he’s the best puppy ever, he’s a REALLY good boy, and all the other mushy jibber jabber that a puppy could probably want to hear from his mommy and daddy πŸ˜‰

I’ve entered into a new mindset for the last couple months. One that focuses on self love, self care, and truly understanding and knowing my body. I want to know exactly what I am putting into my system, and always breathe, eat, speak, and move with intention ❀ My stress levels have dramatically decreased, my sleeping has been incredible, and I feel more vibrant than ever during the day and during my workouts. I think I’m onto something here πŸ™‚

Did I mention how completely in love I am with this guy? Every single day we enjoy another adventure, and create the best memories. So crazy grateful ❀

And yes, we celebrated National Wine Day over the weekend πŸ™‚ Because life is short, so let’s enjoy it! ❀

I hope everybody has an amazing week.
