Summer Eating + Weekly Workouts

Good Morning!

Today is one of those days where I just wanted to crawl back under the sheets and skip the workout all together. It is rainy and gloomy but I told myself how awful a muggy afternoon workout would be and this did just the trick to get me moving!

A little motivation never hurt anyone. 🙂

I was kind of MIA for the past few days. We had a pretty busy weekend with B’s birthday celebration, my good friends baby being born and a baby shower {twins!}! It was certainly the weekend of celebration!


I always hear people saying they indulge around the holidays, well I think I indulge more around the summer months. BBQ, ice cream, wine, wine, wine….

Don’t get me wrong I eat for enjoyment and when the moment is right I celebrate but I just feel I have this saying in the back of my mind like, ” oh, it’s summer, live a little!” more than I do around the holidays!

Anyone else feel this way? 


Anyway I just wanted to check in and share some of my workouts which I have been doing as of late and I hope you find some you can use in your own routine
