Do you guys have things in life you know you need to do despite not enjoying them at all? Strength training is that for me. It’s so important for your bones, for your strength, and for the toned, fit look everyone is after. (It can’t just be me, right?) But I am much more a cardio girl. I get intimidated working out in intense environments, don’t have a lot of muscle mass, and get headaches

I’m so excited it’s Friday! I have a lot to do this weekend. I want to work on some blog things and get down to business planning our upcoming trip to Hawaii. I also want to go for a run and rock another Zumba class. The weather is supposed to be beautiful!
1. Speaking of Zumba, we cooled down to this song last week and it seriously made my day. It’s so positive and

A fun night with girlfriends getting dinner at Marks and dessert at ECreamery. ECreamery’s Irish Cream ice cream is the bomb dot com.
Our running buddy Gizmo. Josh and I were running a 5k around Regency when this little guy trotted up to me and started covering me in kisses. Thankfully he had tags and we were able to find his owners. He was loving his little adventure. I’m so glad we were

I was so proud of myself last weekend for planning ahead and outlining a blog post for every day of this week. I wanted to write them all out on Sunday and then spend the week patting myself on the back for being an organized, efficient blogger. Then I decided to watch the pilot episode of Scandal. Now it’s Thursday, I’ve watched three seasons of Scandal (I’m caught up for tonight’s episode!), and am posting

This past Saturday I woke up early to meet up with some of my girlfriends for a race. It was colder than expected. (I think like 9 degrees?) But I was excited for the race so I dragged myself out of bed and got into some cold weather race gear.
The five of us ran the Diva Dash 5k in Aksarben. We were the Pavement Princesses. We had a tutu making party a month

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m taking a break from honeymoon recaps to share a fun St. Patrick’s day recap. Erin go Braugh! I’m very proud to be Irish and was excited to get to celebrate such a fun holiday in a unique way this year.
Josh and I ran a 5k! We signed up for the Blarney Stone 5k with Jeff and Joanna a while back and were looking forward to a festive run.

I hope you had a great Mardi Gras. I had dinner and drinks with girlfriends and grabbed (more) drinks with Josh. It was fun getting into the spirit of the day.
Maybe I got a little too into the spirit. ;p
Something I can never get too into is running.
Do you want to get silly and dress up in a costume? There’s races for that. (Please notice

Edited to add: I accidentally posted this last Monday, a week ahead of the campaign launch date. If it looks familiar, it’s because you might have read it before I realized and took it down. Whoops! Happy Monday everyone!
This weekend was a wonderful one. For the first time in a long time it felt good to get up and move. I’ve had so much I’ve been wanting to tell you and share with

I know this week has been extra fitness-focused on here, but after not being able to work out for so long, it feels so good to be able to move again!
A little over a month ago I got these super sweet Reebok ZQuicks to test out and review. Seriously, how beautiful are they? I had never run in Reebok sneakers

I have a mantra in life. It’s “work smarter, not harder.” This may sound strange to some, but know it’s not about putting down hard work. It’s about not doing unnecessary hard work when there’s a smarter way to handle the situation. If you’re hitting a brick wall over and over again maybe it’s time to stop throwing yourself at the brick wall
