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.

Outfit Inspo For the Office

 

Happy Monday Friends!! 🙂

When you think of the phrase “office style”, you might think of boring even bland outfits you wouldn’t ever wear outside of a cubicle. But, I promise, work outfits really don’t have to be boring. So many workplaces have relaxed their dress codes that it’s easier than ever to put together a cute, comfortable look for the office. Even if you do work in an environment where traditional dress codes remain, you’re not doomed to poly-blend trousers and jewel-toned tops. Today, I am sharing some outfit inspiration that is great for the office or even some after office fun! #happyhour

(Sidenote: this photoshoot was taken on a super windy day so disregard the awkward faces + wind blown hair)

Valentines Day Gift Ideas For Kids/Teens

 

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and since we don’t usually go all out for it, it always sneaks up on me. To get-ahead this year, I wanted to share some of my favorite Valentines Day gift ideas, for the kids and teens!!!  As far as our plans, we usually just have dinner together at a favorite place to eat (just us) but since Ridge is getting older we like to include him in our “outings” (so romantic I know)…

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 🙂
