Are you still there??

Hey friends!! After a few weeks away from blogging, I am back. It took me a little bit to find my stride with the new job and the initial wedding planning steps but I have found it and I am full of new posts and ideas that I can’t wait to share!

Here is what I have read and posted over the past few weeks…enjoy!!

What I Read:

I am not going to lie, I got super emotional after looking at this….

I love this new collection of nude flats.

Read this before you try the KonMari Method.

Fabletics released their new swim outfits and of course I am obsessed with the one that is already sold out!!

What I Pinned:

Help those avocados ripen up!

Can’t wait to make this skinny carrot cake…yummmmmo!

I love my Shnauzie!


A few weeks back I made a trip up to Dallas to meet my dad and my MOH to search for dresses and we found one!!! It was so amazing and such a relief to mark that off the list. And of course we had to celebrate the remainder of the weekend!!

I had such a great time with some close friends of mine and I know my father was super excited for the day too!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!!!

Row, Row, Row 

Hello!!!! It’s been a hot minute since I shared a workout so today is your lucky day!!

   

AND ROW!!!

When I first started going to Orange Theory Fitness I had a love/hate relationship with the rower. It hurt my hands, I couldn’t quite get the flow, but I noticed that I was burning a lot of calories when I was on it AND I noticed a difference in my strength all around. 

This isn’t new for those of you who have been rowing for awhile, but for those that still just pass the rower by, jump on it during your next cardio day! Don’t believe how awesome it is? Read this article. We all know spin, or cycle, class TORCHES calories and is an awesome workout. But jumping on the rower is even better!! 

Over the months I have posted a couple row workouts. Here is an OTF inspired run to row workout here. And most recently I posted a row workout with bicep curls

Check them out let me know what you think. I promise you won’t be disappointed! Plus! If you are looking for a new and different cardio workout to kind of surprise your body this is it. You can even do interval training on the rower just like running or spin/cycle. 

Xoxo,
