I hope the weather is nice so you can get out and enjoy it!!!

Workout goal this week-3 workouts in any form.

I got 2 workouts in last week, 1 walk/run and 1 hike. The weather wasn’t too bad and I should have gone out on Saturday after work for a little run but I was lazy instead hahaha I am working on it! The weather looks promising for this week so fingers crossed!!!!!

Where did April go????!!!!! Are we seriously in the last week of April already? And I am in week 4 of school, only 1.5 more months in this quarter. I have gotten a good routine down but I will admit it includes coffee or an energery drink prettt much every day hahaha! But I limit it to one French press’ worth (generally) which is only about 1 1/4 cup. I don’t think that is too bad.

I am also pretty adjusted to working while going to school again, it is just very fatiguing. I am slowly finding the energy to do it all. 

I got in 2 ‘workouts’ last week. A short run Tuesday morning and an hour+ walk with the BF and the dog on Friday. 

My goal this week is 3 workouts.

I cannot wait for this quarter to be over so I can actually have 1 whole day off.

Enjoy the last full week of April 2017! Make it count because you will never get it back!

Good Morning!!!!

Today is going to be a busy day, I am heading out the door to bio, then back home to let the dog out and get ready for work, then back to chemistry class, then rush to the train to work. Then I will be rushing to catch the last train back out at 11:16pm to get home and head to sleep.

My goal this week is 3 workouts. I managed 2 last week.

Week 3 of school and working full time. I still got this! But I will admit I am so tired come Tuesday/Wednesday that my “weekend” aka the two days I don’t work and only have labs in the morning are spent just resting. I need to figure something out because I feel like I am constantly dragging, and am drinking way too many energy drinks. Maybe I will start napping Thursday afternoons before the BF gets here so I am a little more rested so that we can get out and do things instead of just watch TV/movies because I am so tired. I will keep you posted.

What are your goals for the week?

Happy Monday!!!! 

Though as far as my work week goes it’s my Wednesday. 

I am trying to clean and organize as much as I can this week along with enjoying my downtime. Next week my schedule grows by like 3x. Next quarter of classes which starts next Monday I am taking 2 classes and a lab as well as possibly transitioning into a full time job. It’s going to be interesting. Thankfully I only work 3-4 days next week so I can ease into it. 
How is your week going?

Can you suffer from the pain of both? I ate way too much junk this weekend and was bloated for at least half the weekend and tonight I ran 5 miles then walked for another 30. 

Tomorrow I need to do some serious stretching and foam rolling (aka tourture). My right hip (IT band) is SUPER tight so my hip is hurting and it radiates down my thigh to my knee. So foam rolling is a big to do for me tomorrow……or today since its after midnight. 

The boyfriend and I were seriously lazy this weekend, we watched at least 8 movies and some Game of Thrones episodes. But it was seriously needed for me since I was traveling the last 2 weekends. 

Some random stuff from this week:

My walk to class from the back parking lot

Gotta love Oregon lol

The boyfriend suggested running a marathon together in October, he was thinking Portland marathon until I looked it up and the cost is $130!! Too rich for our current blood so I’m looking at other options. But i did look up some training plans on Google

Then i scrapped them and made my own hahaha. 

Tonight was the premier of a new TV show 

I used the 2 hour premier to distract me while I ran. 

Yep, i run like a turtle.

Thank goodness for TVs on your treadmill.

When I got home I had some leftover sushi from yesterday’s dinner

It was good. 

And now it’s pass out time. 


Do you like sushi?

August mile a day challenge

Hi friends!!!  I am going to try a little challenge on the blog!! I hope you will join in.

It is going to be very simple, travel a mile a day on your own energy.

You can:

walk, bike, swim, run, row and anything else you can think of that can take you the distance. For anything water based there are 1609.34 meters in a mile. As for steps in a mile i found this on beach body blog:


it is also totally ok to combine several of these to make a mile, you could swim 800M and walk half a mile or swim 400m, walk half a mile and row 400m, you chose each day how you want to do this.

However you do it just get that mile in.

check in on social media with #augustmileaday

follow me for the challenge:





Who is in?
