Still can’t believe it’s summer & I’m officially a Junior in college! Crazy how time flies…
Anywhoooo, I’ve been pretty busy, with moving home and getting adjusted to my summer schedule, but hopefully from here on out I’ll be able to post 3-5 times a week (that’s my goal anyways.)
Week three of BBG started yesterday, and I’ve switched it up a little bit this week, due to having a day off (my first real day off in I don’t even know how long). Chris and I woke up early to go on a hike, which was pretty satisfying to say the least, unlike freezing my bum off while he played golf in the cold a few hours later. (fyi; don’t agree to golfing unless it’s AT LEAST 60+ degrees out…you’ll thank me later!)
Chris & I (:

After golfing we came home and I was able to clean a bit, then relax and catch up on both Vampire Diaries and Quantico! I finally go to start meal prepping for the week, which was surprisingly pretty fun and we grabbed some froyo before Chris had to go to work. All in all, it was a great first day off & summer has already been full of fun and its only just begun. Cant wait to see what the rest of summer holds!
Here’s my BBG schedule for the rest of the week:
*Tuesday ~Arms & Abs + 15 minutes on the treadmill
*Wednesday ~Legs & cardio + 15 minutes on the elliptical
*Thursday ~ 35 minute run
*Friday ~Full Body workout
*Saturday ~Ab workout + 25 minute run
*Sunday ~Rest day/Meal Prep
Have a great week!

So it’s my last day of my sophomore year of college and I’m currently waiting for my RA to check me out of my room. I never thought it would be this sad to walk into an empty apartment…I live pretty close to campus, so I’ve been moving my stuff out all week but decided it would be best to go back one last time and double-check everything before I checked out…man was this a mistake.
I walked in and was immediately overtaken by how sad it was to see everything bare and empty. It feels like just yesterday Marley and I were hauling our stuff in, a week before everyone else to start Dance Camp Preseason…and now the year is over… So much has changed this year, and its crazy to think that we won’t be moving in early ever again…that we’ll never have a dance preseason again…
As I sit here, I reflect on this year. It has definitely, by far been the craziest year of college yet…So many things have changed for both the worst and the better, but that’s life. I’ve learned a lot this year, and I’ve accomplished even more. I’m realizing that it’s true what they say; the college years are really some of the best times of your life.
This year I’ve gained 2 of my best friends, who in these past few weeks, I have done EVERYTHING with, and I know I can always count on them for anything. I met the love of my life, & we’ve traveled to places I would have never imagined. I’ve made it half way to my bachelor’s degree, and although it hasn’t always been easy, I’ve learned to take the good with the bad. After working 2 jobs and about 50+ hours a week first semester I have become a Sales Lead at Pier 1 and have had some pretty great experiences with my team.
My life is crazy, I’ll admit, but its mine. From the late nights staying up to finish homework after work, and the early mornings at the gym, there’s nothing I would change. Some argue that I’m missing out on the real college experience; late nights with friends and partying into the early mornings…But that has never been me… maybe when I’m closer to the end :p
As for Summer? Maybe it’ll be different, maybe some nights will be “crazy” with less responsibilities, but my goal is just to be happy. Workout, have fun and spend time with family and friends 🙂
Next up, JUNIOR YEAR!
Hi Lovelies! Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone’s had a great day so far 🙂 I meant to post this yesterday, but have been so busy with finals that I never got around to it, anywhooooo; only one final left! Thursday is my last final of Sophomore year and I’m SUPER excited!
It’s day 2 of week 2, & I’m feeling pretty great! This morning I ran in the park and took the time for a long, relaxing stretch!
My goals this week are to pass my last final, move out of school for the summer and transition my workouts smoothly to a combination of at home workouts as well as gym based ones since I’ll have less availability to a gym. I’m also going to start meal prep this Saturday, so that should be exciting! I’m ready to get off to a clean start for summer. Bikini body here I come!
Here are this week’s workouts:
*Monday -legs & cardio + 15 on the elliptical
*Tuesday -early morning run + stretch
*Wednesday -arms & abs
*Thursday -45 minute walk or yoga
*Friday -Total body
*Saturday -rest day + meal prep
*Sunday -class or work on area that needs a little extra
*whenever working out I like stick to a sugary drink, like Powerade or water with energy mixes. This prevents my sugar levels from dropping too quick, during my workout & helps me get through to the end
*if this schedule doesn’t work for you, don’t be afraid to switch the days around!
Now that I’m going home I’m going to look into getting back into zumba and other classes at least once a week as a fun alternative!
Join me in taking on week two! We can do this! Let’s get fit for summer!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing women out there who are the reason behind their children’s success. We all know that we couldn’t have done it without you.
(Throwback to graduation🙈)
Thank you to my mom for being my best friend, my biggest supporter and most harsh critic. I have no idea where I’d be if you didn’t push me to do the things I have done. I appreciate you more than you will ever know<3
Love you always,

We are officially at the last week of sophomore year, and I couldn’t be more happy that summer is just around the corner. I’ve had a great year and have learned and accomplished so so much, but it’s nice to know that I have a four month break to look forward to. Since the next few days will be spent studying for finals, Marley and I decided to take this morning to relax a bit before it gets hectic again.
After going for a walk in the cold morning drizzle (as per BBG), we visited my absolute favorite café here, called The Bean Counter. We came across this cute little coffee shop last year during a dance event, when we snuck out in search of some place warm. One of the girls suggested that we go there and I have been in love with it ever since. Not to mention they have the yummiest breakfast sandwiches everrrr😍
*It’s crazy to think that in less than a week the apartment will be packed up and we will be home for the summer. For now, I’m enjoying the last of the little things of my sophomore year of college.

Happy Hump Day!
Today’s day three of my second round of BBG & I have to say, I’m off to a pretty strong start! Yesterday I ran and took the time to do a good stretch. Stretching is so so so important & it’s good to not only stretch after a good workout, but to take the time every week to complete at least one in depth stretch. Sometimes I like to do yoga and then stretch instead of running for a more relaxing day.
Anywaaaaays, I took a few progression pictures this morning that show just a little bit of the progress I’ve seen from beginning to end of BBG round one. I think I’m going to take my measurements so I can track them during this journey as well. (If you visit Kayla’s website you’ll see some tips for both progression pics and taking your measurements 🙂
Plans for the rest of the week!
*Thursday -45 minute walk
*Friday -full body workout
*Saturday -15 minute run + any low
impact workout on areas that need attention
*Sunday -Rest day + (meal prep -I won’t start this until I’m out of school)
Pre BBG Round 1
Post BBG Round 1
Slow but steady progress 🙂
