Well hello there! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I’ve been in Kansas City for almost a week now, and I’m heading back to Chicago this afternoon! It’s been quite a weekend and I got to spend a lot of time with family and friends so I haven’t been on my computer or taking many pictures, but I do have a few to share!
On Thursday I did the Turkey Trot 5K with my Dad (more to come later):
And that evening we headed to my cousins’ for Thanksgiving dinner. My mom and I realized we were almost outfit twins!

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for Thanksgiving! I can’t believe I’ll be going home in two days! Here’s a look at what I did this weekend:
Thursday night was skeeball, which was a blast, and then Friday night I was invited to a Friendsgiving Dinner hosted by a girl on my skeeball team. She lives near Chinatown so this is the scene I was greeted with when I got off the El:
We had a great variety of food (I made cranberry sauce) and it was a lot of fun to get to know a new group of women. I didn’t take any photos since my camera was about to die, but I stole this pic from the hostess’s facebook:

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend, I had a pretty low-key one, but here’s my recap:
Friday afternoon I took Miss Molly on a walk, which is always a highlight of my week. Great photo of her excitement in the elevator (okay, actually about to lick her nose…).
She had some serious energy and really enjoyed running around in the park. We played chase Katie and normally she looses interest but on Friday she was all for running!

Good morning and happy Monday!
I had quite a busy weekend, but it was definitely fun! It all started out Friday when my parents arrived in town. They stopped off at my apartment to drop off a few things, and then later we all went out to dinner at a Greek restaurant up in Lakeview.
Saturday morning I headed out for my 6 mile run and decided to run south through the Gold Coast neighborhood. On my run I came across this Halloween display:
Haha pretty cool! The temperature was also pretty cool… It was the first outdoor run where I’ve had to break out the running tights and long sleeves! I’d been avoiding the cold weather by running on the treadmill, but I wanted to run outside and I’m so glad I did!

Good morning everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great weekend. I had quite a busy one, and it’s not over yet because we’re going to see HANSON tonight! I know, I know, you’re jealous. Totally understandable.
First, a few photos to give you a glimpse into my weekend:

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was pretty… low key. Haha. Most everyone was out of town or busy so I spent a lot of time relaxing, aka listening to Harry Potter Audiobooks and reading this month’s book club choice, Orange Is the New Black.
apartment and orange is the new black
I also had a fun experience at GoldPlaited (more on that tomorrow), got my apartment pretty much put together, and tried out my sister-in-law’s church in Lincoln Park.

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend and a good mother’s day! I’ve been doing a little studying, a little relaxing and just trying not to get too overwhelmed! I’ve taken 3 finals so far and I have one 24-hour take home this week and a paper to write and then I’m DONE! AHHHHHHH. I can’t handle it. Alright, let’s get on to my weekly workout round up, shall we?
First let’s take a look at how I did last week:
Monday – Workout A + Cardio
Tuesday – Cardio intervals + Core workout
Wednesday – Workout B + Cardio (or Rest depending on studying)
Thursday – Cardio intervals + Core workout…

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a great weekend, I certainly am! Trying to get some work done though to prepare for finals, only two weeks of class left. Seriously, where did the last three years go?? Anyway, it’s Sunday so it’s time to re-cap last week’s workouts and see my plan for this upcoming week. This week was the beginning of phase 2 in Tina’s Boot Camp (there are 4 phases, each 2 weeks long). I really loved all the strength workouts in this phase, although they were hard!
Let’s take a look at last week:
Sunday – REST
Monday – Workout A + Cardio intervals
Tuesday – Cardio + Core workout
Wednesday – Workout B + 20 minutes steady state cardio
Thursday – Cardio + Core workout (Zumba only if my IT band is better)
Friday – Workout C + Cardio intervals…

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a great weekend, I’m writing this ahead of time, so I don’t know if I am or not! Ha, let’s hope so. Anyway, this weekend was the end of week 2 (of 8) of Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp, and the end of the first of four phases! I liked this phase a lot because we did a lot with dumbells, which is helpful for balancing out each side. I also loved workout C, which was about building balanced leg strength (something I really need to work on!).
Alright, let’s take a look at last week’s workouts. I didn’t workout on Sunday, so a few days got shifted around:
Sunday Monday – Workout A (strength) plus 20 minutes of steady state cardio
Monday Tuesday – Cardio intervals (on the BBC plan)
Tuesday Wednesday – Workout B (strength) plus 20 minutes of steady state cardio
Wednesday Thursday – Cardio intervals (on the BBC plan)

Hey everyone, I hope you’re all having a great weekend! Mine’s been pretty laid back (other than my great date night), lots of cleaning and school work. However, I’m hoping to get in some more quality friend time this afternoon!
Since it’s Sunday, it’s time to re-cap last week’s workouts and tell you my plan for this week. Many of you have asked about my IT band, and to do a quick re-cap it’s not really bothering me, but my right leg is in various areas (hip, foot, etc) which I’m hoping to get to the bottom of at my chiropractor appointment this Tuesday!
Here’s how I did with last week’s workout plan:
Sunday – Total Strength class
Monday – 2 mile run + cardio (elliptical or walking)
Tuesday – REST (have an early chiropractor appointment)…
