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!



Motivation Monday

Lately I have been struggling with the whole eating healthy, working out thing. I know my body has felt the difference and I just need to commit to it every day! This past weekend I did a 10K with a friend. We truly were not well prepared because neither of us trained enough. It was hot, humid, hazy . . . typical DC warm weather. We continue to say JUST KEEP GOING! So folks that’s what I need to do in all aspects of my life. I can’t do the same  thing every day and expect different results, I can’t eat like the boy, and I certainly can’t slack off on my workouts.  So I am recommitting and I am going to KEEP GOING!

keep going

One day this will hopefully all just sink in and not be something I have to actively think about but second nature. If you have succeeded in making it second nature how did you do it?

It’s OK Thursday, #11

So it’s a sad day because today is technically the last It’s OK Thursday Link up with A Complete Waste of Makeup and  Brunch with Amber. Who knows what I will post then! Maybe I will continue for a little while.


It’s OK. . .

  • to be have a really bad run but feel accomplished because at least you got out there.
  • to love flower bouquets, but also be tired of the smell. There are lots of lilies, may need to get rid of them to save my allergies.
  • that some days you just don’t want to work anymore, and I like my job but wouldn’t it be nice if I didn’t have to work.
  • to be excited that it’s 148 days till the wedding.
  • to be SUPER excited about my egg muffins that I made for breakfast this week. They are super easy and very tasty, now I need to buy more eggs.
  • to really want to see the Great Gatsby in the theater even though it got bad reviews. Any one want to go?
  • to love getting a manicure than be super annoyed you WASTED $15 because it chips 2 days later, that’s why I love the gel nails . . . but really $35 people come on!
  • to love getting to work early because that means you get to leave earlier to see your man!
  • to be annoyed that 6AM is my new standard wake up time, even though my alarm doesn’t go off that time each day.
  • to have no idea what to do at 6AM when you don’t have to leave the house till 7:30 and you don’t want to watch TV.

What’s OK with you this week?

Oh and here are the flowers I was referring to:

So much to do, so little time. . .but I managed some time for blogging


It’s OK. . .

  • to be so happy for a day out of the office to go to a workshop. I love learning new things and hopefully meeting new people.
  • to be feeling good about my workouts, but sometimes it’s ok to take a few days off.
  • to be in love with my wedding dress . . . yes that means I bought one this weekend.
  • to be smile when you receive a text your fiancee telling you about good plans.
  • to look forward to birthday surprises.
  • that sometimes you just want to escape from the world.
  • to have a meltdown in front of the one person that actually knows how to make it better.
