Motivation Monday & July Squat Challenge!

I once again had an awesome weekend! I was trying to figure our ways to extend it, but since we have the holiday weekend coming up I figured I would just have to deal with a few days of work again before the fun.

Usually my monday motivation is around fitness, today I am going to give you a little something else. My motivation these days is centered around being healthy for the rest of my life so I can spend lots of time with the ones I love! As you all  know I am getting married in a few short months. So I dedicated today’s motivation to my new best friend!


Oh and because we all need a little fitness, join me in the July squat challenge!



Tid bit Friday

So it’s been about a week since  my last post and life has been (as usual) quite busy. My 2013 plan to simplify was going well and then I hit some bumps in the road. Some are great, some not so much. So here’s what I have been pondering over the last week.

Fitness and Eating: the plan to work out and eat “cleaner” is working. I don’t really feel deprived, I am enjoying my working out and I am losing weight. So YAY! It’s hard to always fit the time in with everything else in my life but thankfully work hasn’t been too crazy right now so I have been ok.

Home Life: Well I had some Super Storm Sandy damage, that finally got fixed on Monday. Tuesday I came home to my heat blowing cold air, so now I have to have it replaced. I have spent a lot of time in my house this week, which has been nice because I got caught up on my DVR, but also frustrating because it’s going to require lots more money.

Dating Life: I feel like it’s finally time to let you all know I have been dating someone. It’s going really well and I am super excited about it. I don’t want to give to many details because honestly I don’t feel like it’s necessary. But the long story short is I have known him since Sept. and we have been together since mid-Oct. It just feel right. He is definitely helping to add balance to my life!

Rewards: From the last post, I am still thinking on this. But a few ideas are definitely nails, hair, and music. Little milestones along the way. And as you see above I need to put myself on a strict budget so these really do have to be less expensive rewards!

What’s new in your world? What are you Friday Tidbits?
