So, Happy Friday! I don’t have much to speak of this morning, you must all be pumped to keep reading. If you click off right now, I won’t hate you. Well, maybe a little. This will just be my random ramblings on a Friday morning, numbered, so that there is some structure at least.
Its Friday Junior! Is everyone getting pumped for the weekend?
So, let’s talk about food and portion control today. I am fairly disciplined with my eating; however lately I have just let all hell break loose on that front. I’m a firm believer in being flexible with things like food and exercise, for myself anyways, or else I can be disciplined to a certain point but then I will fall off the wagon…and I will fall off hard. I haven’t completely fallen off the wagon in terms of crappy, unhealthy food but I have in terms of portions. All I want to do is eat and eat and eat. Call it the chilly weather, call it having more time at home to think about food, who knows. I feel like I have gained a couple of pounds, so I am trying to reduce my portion sizes to something more reasonable.
Happy Wednesday! It is WIAW and that means it is time to link up with Jenn @ Peas & Crayons, thanks Jenn for hosting!
We have some very exciting Christmas news to share! In exactly one week, we are flying to Hawaii for the holidays. I know, kind of amazing right?
Happy Saturday! I have to show you my new favourite mug. It was only $4.99 at Target, its just an early Christmas gift for myself I guess. I was devastated that they didn’t have a J mug for James, but sometimes life just doesn’t go our way. #firstworldproblems
Hot chocolate + Happy Feet 2 = pure happiness
It has been a few days since I have checked in. I have been busy with things, mainly Christmas preparations like shopping, wrapping, and crafting. Here are some things to update you on in my life:
1. On Sunday I decided that I needed to sweat and get my yoga on. I went to a hot yoga class at 10:00am and instead of calming me down, it got me all frustrated instead. It was a really challenging class for me because the room felt way hotter than normal. It was like an inferno in there and since it was a morning class I hadn’t drank enough water beforehand. End result: I felt dizzy about 14 times in 90 minutes and nearly passed out from heat exhaustion (I’m being a little dramatic).
Happy Saturday friends! It has been awhile since I have done a Saturday link up with Katie from Katie Did What and today it just feels right.
Hi everyone, Happy Friday! First thing to update you on is the Pearl Jam concert that we went to on Wednesday night. I’m admittedly not the biggest Pearl Jam fan out there. I don’t dislike them but I’m definitely more of a pop princess. I didn’t feel the same excitement in anticipation for this show as I would have felt for a Britney Spears or Taylor Swift concert, but I wore my edgiest shirt and off we went. Please note that my edgiest shirt is a black t-shirt with exposed gold zippers on the shoulders (bottom left pic). That’s it, that’s all I’ve got. Apparently cardigan’s aren’t edgy?
So, I have been wanting to join Crossfit ever since I tried a class back in April, check out my post on that here. After looking into Crossfit gyms in my area the $150-$180/month seems a little steep for this unemployed girl right now. I was craving a tough gym workout today though, so I googled Crossfit workouts and I found a whole bunch that I can’t wait to try on Pinterest. This is the one that I tried today.
