Monday in Motion

8 Jan

Hey there friends,

The first day of the new school semester has come and gone, and to be honest, I feel a sense of positive energy around me as I start classes, begin practicum work, and dive into school work. The beginning of the semester always means you can start on a fresh page 🙂

Monday morning’s alarm came way too quickly, but I hopped out of bed and got ready for school. I packed my gym bag the night before, so I it was super simple to grab it and go on my way out. After my first school committment in the morning, I had 6 hours until my next class. I was one sleepy gal, but I took a glance at my gym bag in the back seat and decided that I was gonna crush my cardio. And by crush my cardio, I mean I completed Tone It Up’s latest cardio workout called “Crush Cardio”.

I’ve completed many a Tone It Up workout, but this was one of the most intimidating ones to date. The sprinting intervals and the amount of reps made me nervous. For a moment, I thought that I wasn’t going to be able complete the entire workout, but then I paused and took a moment for a self “pep talk.” It went a little something like this: You can do this workout. You are capable of finishing anything you set your mind to. Just press start, and you have nothing to lose!”

^^ Yup, I know it may sound corny, but it worked for me. I hopped on the treadmill for an hour for a total of 5.5 miles and felt absolutely fantastic afterwards! I even filmed another vlog! Check it out down below:

After a great first day back, I came home to an even better evening. My roommate, Annie, made dinner! Annie, Laura (other rooms), and I sat down for some wonderful conversation and a glass of wine.

3 big glasses of sauvignon!

Yes, those are ice cubes in our glasses. Trust me, my wine tasting professor from undergrad (yes—I did take a wine tasting course for college credit…don’t judge 🙂 ) would cringe at the sight, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do!

I finished the night off by flipping back and forth from the Bachelor & the Biggest Loser. Not a bad Monday if you ask me!

Have a great night everyone!
