Happy Monday everyone! This was a really fun week, with some time at the beach and also a new run club that I joined! There was a little bit of everything, and it's been so much fun to start exploring a bit more. Hopefully more to come! Here's a look at how the week went-
10 min Standing Yoga with Denis
Dan and I made it up for the sunrise this morning and then did a quick yoga flow to kick off the day. It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL out and the entire day was pretty much perfect. We spent a lot of time at the beach and played some football, took some walks, and relaxed.
20 min 90s Ride with Cody
We got back from the beach in the morning so it felt great to take this ride to shake out my legs and get back in the swing of things. I biked for a little longer after class (which was a ton of fun of course) and watched the Olympic Trials for swimming.
30 min Power Walk with Becs
Explored a bit of the neighborhood for my morning walk today and enjoyed this playlist. I usually just listen to a podcast (last two weeks was all tennis podcasts for the French Open) but I felt like music this morning. It was a bit cooler and the sun was out- great start to the day! I also did a morning yoga class when I got home.
3 mile Run
Today was my first Run Club in a long time. I heard about one at House of Hops in Raleigh and decided to give it a try! The group is still not running together but after I did my run (with one of the members who thankfully let me join her) I got to hang out with the group and drink some beer! Everyone was so welcoming and friendly, so I'm glad that I found a way to meet some people. Can't wait to go back!
7 mile Bike Ride
Dan and I headed to Bond Park after work to explore some of the greenways! There are so many that connect from this park, so we picked one and headed in that direction until we wanted to go back and picked another one. It was a beautiful trail surrounded by trees, and we went by a few lakes. Can't wait to try out more of the trails!
30 min Country Walk with Selena
Such a gorgeous morning out! Selma and I did a loop around the lake while I listened to this fun playlist. The water was so calm- I can't wait to get out there soon.
10 min Yoga
Dan requested morning yoga for lower back today, so I found a new class on Youtube. This was my first time trying out the instructor and I liked her a lot! This class was more like stretches than a flow, but it felt really great.
3.5 mile Run
At run club I got invited to a fun birthday party/run! The plan was 3.5 miles, running from one person's house to the next and having a drink at each house. It was kind of like a beer mile (which I've never done) and was so much fun but also got a little dicey at the end. Good experience for sure but probably won't replicate for a while (maybe for next year's birthday party!)
30 min Juneteenth Ride with Alex
Definitely needed to take it easy after yesterday's "run", so I was excited to take this ride as a recovery. It was a fun playlist and a great celebration of black artists. I want to take more of the new Juneteenth classes that came out this year with Peloton- the ones from last year are still some of my favorites that I've taken so far.
3 mile Run
Got my run done early in the morning because it was supposed to rain all day. It was clear when I started but quickly started to drizzle! It actually felt great, and I was protected by the trees for most of the run. For the first 20 minutes I took Jess Sims's new outdoor pop run, then listened to a podcast for the rest.
Happy Thursday everyone! Today I have a different type of post to share today. I don't talk about relationships or my dating life much on the blog, but I'm switching it up today! I got married last Friday, and I thought it would be fun to share some relationship rules that I broke while Dan and I dated. I'll also be sharing some wedding pictures! We got married at the Butterfly Falls at the Hidden Valley Inn in Belize (more on the Inn in upcoming posts!), and the pictures turned out absolutely amazing. Since we had a "just the two of us" ceremony, there's not much to talk about the actual wedding. In lieu of a full post on that, I'll be sharing some background information on our relationship, along with wedding photos and some #ThrowbackThursday pictures. I hope you enjoy (and I promise- back to running stuff next week!) Guys are immature, so date someone older I've always read in magazines (which, by the way, have the worst datin
Happy Weekend everyone! Today, I'll be doing a review of another group exercise I do at my gym called Group Power ! Let's get right into it. First off, the description in our program guide is "This 60-minute barbell program strengthens all your major muscles in an inspiring, motivating group environment with simple, athletic movements such as squats, lunges, presses and curls." I don't exactly look like this when I'm curling..but you get the idea! Let me tell you, this is one intense workout! For the entire 60 minutes, we're constantly moving and lifting and by the end I'm a pool of sweat! We work out all the major muscle groups - Legs, Chest, Triceps, Biceps, Glutes, Shoulders, and Core with light to moderate weights. We also use a step to do exercises like chest presses and split squats. For each song, we focus on one muscle group, and do a variety of exercises with lots of repetitions, set to the beat of the music. The tempo of the
Hi everyone and happy Friday! This was a pretty tame week for me (I'll tell you why down below), so I'm ready for some fun this weekend! I don't have anything planned as of now, but I'm hoping to get in some kayaking, some brewery drinking, and maybe even some tennis playing (in anticipation of the US Open about to start!). I hope you all have a fun weekend as well! linking up with Erika , Heather , and Friday Five Song Little Mix and CNCO - Reggaeton Lento Remix Another week, another Latin song! I definitely go through phases with listening to different types of music, and in the summer I always tend towards Spanish styles. This one is a fun remix and I'm loving it! Not entirely sure if this counts as a true Spanish song since it's half in English, but oh well! If you like Despacito, you'll LOVE this one! ps- I just saw that Miley Cyrus is releasing her next album at the end of September! I'm loving her new stuf
I am so impressed with how you have gotten out there already and met people! It really seems like you are figuring out your new home, and how you want to live there. Do you think this will be a long-term move? Or are you waiting-and-seeing? I hope that it's still going well for you!ReplyDelete
Thanks Anne! I still feel like I'm figuring stuff out haha...good to know it seems like I have it together though :) I don't think this will be long term...my husband and I both want to travel and live all over the world eventually so this is just a starting point for us! But we'll see what happens!Delete
This will give you the most effective results. This is the add-on that actually comes with the Old Style Aloe Rid Shampoo. Well-known independently in the cannabis world, it’s a simple, 3-part system. After usage, it’s supposed to be effective for up to 24 hours. Ideally, you want to use this detox shampoo system the day before the test. We don’t recommend you use this system on its own, but it does pair well with other detoxifiers. Pairing it with any of our other recommendations should give you the most effective results! We love that Folli-Clean’s shampoo is pH balanced, so it’s safe for both color-treated and permed hair. There are some steps to help make the shampoo more effective, though. First, avoid laying down after you’ve cleaned your hair and body. If you know they’ll pull from your scalp, just be sure to avoid any pillows. The ph level, temperature, color, and all other parameters are kept identical to standard levels of human urine to pass the test without any suspicion So, without delaying that any further, let’s dive head-first into this jar of you-know-what and take a look at the best fake urine kits of 2021: 1 You need one with all the ingredients that match real human urine That way, the detox process is accelerated, and you sweat a lot throughout the process, which is an excellent way of expelling toxins In addition, we also looked at the social media popularity of these brands In general, if you are scheduled for a drug test, drink lots of waterReplyDelete
