First things first: how the hell is it already September? I say it every year, but holy moly time flies and I can’t handle it!

My obsession with fitness classes is borderline problematic. Call me competitive, but my response to peer pressure makes classes the only way I can successfully have a good workout. The gym sucks and smells bad, and during any home practice my mind tends to wander. Even when I was in school I could never study at home - there’s something about the right environment and the right gear that makes the workout for effective for me.


My parents gifted me the LifeTrak C410 earlier last month. It’s pretty nifty to be able to see all my stats on my wrist, and it keeps me motivated to get my booty up and moving. I’ve woken up extra early lately to get 1,000 steps in on my stepper a few times already! And yes, I just said “stepper.” My old lady knees prevent me from running, and also I’m secretly an 83 year old grandma. Arthritic knees gotta do what arthritic knees gotta do!

Ugh, I love my family. I really really do. To say I had a blast with them during our first big family trip to Disney is a severe understatement. As summer seems to be ending I can’t help but look back on that amazing vacation! Disney, you were the best, and you get bet your bottom dollar that we will be back soon!



Most days I’m all about them pointy pumps and pink bows, but to be honest my body type just doesn’t do well with the ultra feminine girly girl looks. I’m always drawn to pieces that drape or flow, so while it’s not my inherent style it has been fun getting to explore my hispter side: complete with fringe, maxi skirts, flower crowns, and graffiti walls. Some weeks you just have to give up and be that girl.

Oh yeah, and there’s THIS GUY:

Man, sorry if I’m annoying but letsbereal: being engaged is awesome and I only plan on doing it once in my life, so don’t mind me if I am overly excited about it! Yes, still!
