Friday Link Up- Spring!

Yay Friday! Today I get to link up with other awesome people in our Friday Link-Up.

Check out the other hosts here: Eat Pray Run DC , You Signed Up for What and Mar on the Run!

This week, we are talking about Spring Time!

Oh spring, I’m ready for you!

This winter seems to be long and brutal and I’m ready for some sunshine and warm weather. Since I’ve moved to the eastern shore, getting to the point where you can walk the boardwalk comfortably or get on the beach is like the best time in the world! And trust me- everyone else feels that way too!

Things I’m Looking Forward to in Spring:

  • Running outside comfortably in a tank top and shorts. My favorite!
  • Boardwalk/beach time, of course. What a pretty sight!

  • Not wearing a coat outside. For some reason walking outside and it just being warm is a happy thought!
  • Ice cream/froyo dates!

Spring means one step closer to SUMMER and being at the beach all day! Basically any activity I can do outside in good weather is fine by me! Kayaking being a favorite of mine!

Friday Link-Up: Day in the Life

Wow- what a long week. It’s been a particularly busy week for me so I am very ready for it to be Friday!

Today I get to link up with other awesome people in our Friday Link-Up.

This week, we are talking about A Day in our Life!

0001-969578

We have really crazy work schedules, now week is EVER the same- so our times really this, but I gave ranges of what I do each week. I swear one day I’ll have a normal schedule. Maybe. 

7-8ish am-Generally my husband and I workout in the morning before we go to work. It’s basically the only time we have to do so. It’s then or never pretty much!

2015-03-07 06.12.22

 

8:00am- eat breakfast! (YAY!) get ready for work, get to work and do my projects for the day. 

2015-01-19 09.48.41

1:30pm- finally get to eat lunch! I feel like I wait forever to eat my lunch every day (yes I know I have a problem lol!)

~4:00- teach a fitness class to co workers or leave my first job, relax for an hour or two before I get to my next one (working at a gym). This is a class we did the other day!

Unknown

5:30 pm cook dinner OR get to 2nd job…work, obviously.

11:00pm is bedtime if I work at night OR i try to get to bed much sooner. I hate working so late because I love to be in bed early to relax or read, but it is what it is right now. 

That’s about it during the work week. We sort of run around all crazy but we get a little relaxation on the weekends. 

  • What does a day in YOUR life look like? What is your favorite time of day? Mine might be lunch time, haha!

Thoughtful Thursday: On Food & Training

I love food… I could eat it all day, really. I could. There’s not much food I wouldn’t eat. Vegetables aren’t my favorite, but I’m learning to make them in ways that I like them.

However, despite all this, people try to make eating so darn complicated. Truthfully- it shouldn’t be that hard…RIGHT!? (And yes I realize, the actual science & nutrition might be more complicated than I’m making it out to be, but to us average joes, hear me out!)

It helps to always look at food this way:

food

Food is the fuel we need to live our daily lives, workout hard, and smash our goals. 

The simple rules I try to live by:

 

1. Try not to eat 100% junk all the time. Living by the 80/20 rule is a pretty good guideline.

2. Eat some fruit and vegetables every now and then. Incorporate them into each meal you have. Soon enough it will be habit.

3. Eat when you are hungry and stop when you aren’t. Over stuffing yourself does not feel good, try not to scarf your food down so you can pay attention to the signals your body is  giving you. 

4. Treat yo’self. (I miss parks & rec already). You work hard right? A treat isn’t going to hurt you. A piece of pizza will not derail your diet, and you will not gain 60 pounds in one night. What hurts you even more is depriving yourself of food you crave and then going overboard one night and feeling terrible. 

That’s it. That’s all I strive to do when dealing with food. Lately I’ve been lifting some HEAVY weight and really power lifting, because of this, I’ve been super hungry! Therefore I’ve been eating more. Work out hard and eat more? I’m good with that. I’ve been trying to get in plenty of protein, healthy carbs…but there’s always room for a treat every now and then :-)

This has to be my new favorite!
