Hey everyone, Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a good weekend! I spent a lot of time studying over the weekend, but I also had my first kickball game which was a great way to take a break for a few hours, meet some new people and have fun! And then back to studying… haha. At least I’ve done this so many times that I don’t stress myself out too much about it at this point!
Anyway, let’s take a look at last week’s workouts:
Monday – Workout A + Cardio
Tuesday – Cardio intervals + Core workout
Wednesday – Workout B + Cardio
Thursday – Cardio intervals + Core workout…

This week’s mantra goes off my post from last week about my final phone call with Jamie and how you …

So I’m a couple days behind on this one, but you all can forgive me, right? Since it’s the beginning of a new month it’s time to take a look at how I did on my goals for last month and then make some new ones for May! Warning: May goals aren’t too thrilling… I’ve got a crazy busy month coming up so I’m trying to keep it simple!
Here’s a recap of my goals from April:
1. Run outside at least once a week. Hmmm. Didn’t do awesome at this since I’ve been injured, but I actually think I ran outside almost every week, especially since I had the 5K on Sunday, my run with Emily and Kelsey, and I ran 1.5 miles outside the day after Boston. So like 3 out of 4? Sounds good to me.
2. Follow Jamie’s Intuitive Eating Challenge EVERY DAY…

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a good week! Mine is good but busy, lots of classes, work to be done and appointments. I have to be honest, I’m getting nervous about finals starting next week! I think I’m mostly nervous about my motivation to study very much… Number one goal: PASS. Ah stressing me out, okay, let’s move on to Thursday Thoughts so I can stop thinking about finals…
1. Thank you for all your comments on my post Tuesday. I saw a lot of you could relate and many of you found it helpful. I’ve certainly found it helpful, even just over the past week!
2. This picture was included in my One Word Wednesday post yesterday, but I had to add a few more words. THESE ARE SO GOOD. We all know I’m a fan of Quest Bars but I’m so excited that I finally got to try the cookie dough flavor everyone has been raving about!

About a month and a half ago, when I was in Colorado, I did a One Word Wednesday inspired by Lindsay. I really enjoyed it as a nice little break from WIAW posts, especially since school is getting to be a much for real WIAW type of post (and I just can’t remember to take the pictures right now…).
So what is One Word Wednesday? In Lindsay’s words:
The only rule of “One Word Wednesday” is that you must label your pictures with one word. And it MUST be the first word that comes to mind (and yes, you can put two words together, hashtag-style if need be). If you can’t play by those rules, you probably should just sit this one out. Yeah. That’d probably be best.

As I mentioned in my review of the Intuitive Eating Challenge last week, I’d yet to have my final phone call with Jamie. As I picked up the phone, I was prepared to talk about the rough week I’d had, eating-wise, how I’d let stress and emotions get to me and just been a mess all around. When we started talking, however, food was not mentioned once, intuitive eating was not mentioned once, and that’s why I wanted to come back to the challenge and share one more thing with all of you that I’ve learned through working with Jamie.
The idea behind intuitive eating is following your instincts, trusting yourself, appreciating who you are right now and not thinking so much about every little detail. What I realized during this phone call that the idea behind intuitive eating is really how we should think about all aspects of our lives: our careers, our friends, our relationships and our every day…

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend! I had a pretty awesome weekend, lots of time with my friends, including a fun 5K! There may have also been some nut butter making thrown in there somewhere too…
On Sunday morning, Lindsay, Kelsey and I headed out to Oak Park to run the Race That’s Good For Life 5K! The race is put on by the Oak Park Runners Club, which Erin is an active member of, so we had to come out and support her race! (By the way – Erin ran her MARATHON on Saturday and rocked it!!! Congrats Erin!!!).
Anyone notice what shirt I’m wearing? After last week’s Thursday Thoughts and all your comments on how I needed to wear my animal shirts out in public, I thought I’d bring one out for the race!…

Hello! I hope you’re all having a great weekend! I’ve got quite an eventful one over here, after Trivia Night with some friends at my school (SO MUCH FUN), we celebrated Lindsay’s birthday as well this weekend and now I’ve got a 5K race out in the suburbs this morning!
First let’s take a look at last week:
Sunday – REST

Tuesday – Cardio + Core workout
Wednesday – Workout B + 20 minutes steady state cardio
Thursday – Cardio + Core workout
Friday – Workout C + Cardio intervals REST
