How’s everyone’s week going so far? My Monday was pretty low-key, so no complaints there. Yesterday I got in some cardio in the form of an elliptical session and a Niko walk, as well as a back and biceps workout.
And today I plan on doing a little speed work – which is the first time I’ve done that in quite a while. I was actually featured on Shape.com today for Instagram workouts (along with some other awesome bloggers) for my 3-2-1 RUN! workout, so to celebrate, I did that one today.
Except I didn’t use those shoes. I used these – more to come on that later. Good times!
Today is twofer Tuesday, and I’ve got a few things to chit chat with ya’ll about. And a giveaway to host. So let’s get to it, shall we?
Two Fall Fitness Goals
I’m not a huge goal-setter. I know I’m in the minority when it comes to healthy living bloggers. I rarely take the time to actively think about what goals I would like to accomplish in the future, but instead tend to be so impulsive that when something becomes I problem I want to change, or another positive I want in my life, I immediately put that plan into motion to tackle it.
So when Fitmixer announced this month’s blogger ambassador topic was goal setting, it forced me to do just that. I had to step outside my goal-setting comfort zone, which is a good thing! At first I came up with about 5 small goals that I want to accomplish, but then…that’s not really me. I’d rather set up just a couple big ones, and really focus on them – and succeed!
Goal #1. Complete 10 unassisted pull ups.
Sound familiar? That’s because this is also on my fall bucket list!
Goal #2. Integrate at least 1-2 yoga classes into my weekly workout schedule.

Two recent discoveries
I’m switching up my skin care, and I’ll go more into depth about it in a later post, but I wanted to post about witch hazel because it’s such a simple (and cheap!) discovery! I use it like a toner, after I wash my face and befoer moisturizing.
My Private Jet
For some reason I’m really into painting my nails lately, and I absolutely L-O-V-E this color. It’s a dark, gun metal grey with shimmer.
So pretty for fall.
Two Things I’m Loving About Fall
(Awww, pic from the annual bestie Frank Lloyd Wright race!)
Fact: as much as I love Lululemon & Under Armour (LOVE) nothing beats a cozy hoody on a brisk fall evening. Am I right or am I right?
I foresee a trip to the candle store coming very soon, much to my husband’s chagrin.
Two Things I’m Looking Forward (to)
Shane and I pulled the trigger and booked a trip to Colorado Springs in early November. We don’t know where we’re staying yet (any suggestions?) but want ot see the Garden of Gods and Pikes Peak, and do a loooottt of hiking.
Our anniversary, and the reason we’re taking the aforementioned trip to Colorado. Not only am I looking forward to our anniversary, but also going to our favorite restaurant in town, Reality Bites
Two Blog-World Shares
I saw this video on Janetha’s blog this past weekend, and it had me CRACKING up laughing. I am an instagram addict. And this video is hi-larious.
She also posted an iPhone 5 video that’s basically all about taking pictures of food. Again – hilarious.
Now I just need to get some casein protein powder.
