How I Fit Workouts into My Crazy Schedule

Today’s post is all about my love/hate relationship with working out!!!

Since last summer, I’ve slacked off the workout wagon. Well, I like to think of it less as falling off the workout wagon and more as jumping on the chinese delivery/french fries/ranch dressing goes on EVERYTHING wagon. This wagon is delicious, but this wagon is my downfall. Recently, I signed myself up to run a half marathon in March. The training and dedication to eat healthy has been grueling and hard on my body but I set a goal for myself to complete this marathon!

So, now that I have a goal ahead, I started getting my butt back in gear and running on a training schedule. With my crazy work schedule, a 5 year old, family time and blogging, its pretty challenging to fit in a workout! I told myself… NO MORE EXCUSES!!! I’m not focused on losing weight but more about eating better and getting my body ready to get through 13 miles. Since I personally need a kick in the pants and since some of you have requested a workout post, I figured I’d share my top tips on how to fit a workout into your busy schedule and how to actually stick to it.

Transitional Sweater for Fall

 

Happy Monday y’all! And it is a significant Monday as it is September 11th, a day that I think every American remembers. I was in the line at ChickFilA before high school when my dad called to let me and my mom know what had just happened. We still had to go to school but we watched the coverage through 1st and 2nd period then we were free to go home. Thank god because that is all I wanted to do and I know my parents were wanting to just be home as a family. It was such an eerie day! I do love knowing what other people were doing during these intense moments so share what you remember about September 11th in the comments below!!!

 On to today’s post, I wanted to share this amazing burgundy sweater that is the perfect transitional piece for fall. The color is so perfect fall color.

Labor Day Treats

 

Is it the weekend yet?!?!

I have been in the holiday celebration mode since Monday and love making fun snacks and drinks to celebrate. We have a couple different things going on for the long weekend and most of them will consist of yummy holiday treats. I have a feeling something will end up at our house at one point so I have prepared lots of great snack ideas to keep everyone happy. I have actually made all of these treats at some point and love them all. I have linked them all below. I hope at least one of these makes it to your celebration 🙂

Craving Fall + The Best OTK Boots

How is it already the last week of August?!?!

With that being said, I cant help but crave all things FALL! I am more of a “chilly morning, crisp air, hot latte, oversized sweater, cozy booties” kind of gal. I tried really hard to love this summer weather but when you live in straight 100 degree humidity, its hard to not crave cooler weather! And if I am being really honest, I actually decorated the house with all the fall decor and might have played Christmas music while putting it out! #sorrynotsorry

But I did want to send prayers to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Watching the coverage on tv has been so heart breaking seeing neighborhoods and businesses under water. I can not even imagine what these people are going through. I have friends in the Houston area that are all ok and not affected by the flooding but I do continue sending prayers for everyone to stay safe.

Today’s post is all about an easy transition outfit from summer to fall.

Three Ways to Rock Jogger Pants

Today’s post is long over due…

I purchased these joggers back in June and literally wear them 24/7. I was hesitant at first to spend a lot on something so simple but the quality and comfort totally over shadow the price #worthit

I wanted to share three ways you can style joggers and make them work for any occasion.
