Hi Friends! Happy Friday to you. Any big weekend plans? I am pretty excited for some weekend adventures, exploring a new to me city with one of my oldest friends. Before we get to the weekend though, lets talk favorites from this week.
First up, the arrival of the summer monsoons! We have had a couple nice of storms this week. I love the rain, and the pretty rainbows and sunsets after. The only negative is my hair, which believes that the humidity is its personal cue to remember the 80’s and be as huge and frizzy as possible.
The hubs and I also tried our hand at making cold brew coffee using the Starbucks packs. It tastes exactly like the cold brew you would buy pre-made at Starbucks. So if you like their cold-brew, I would suggest it. It seems to be a little cheaper here on Amazon, than I have seen it for in stores.
Speaking of Amazon, did you guys do any Prime Day shopping? I did lots of looking, but ultimately no buying. I did see this bag, that I am still considering though. Isn’t it cute!
I do need a new gym bag. Mine is old, starting to develop some tears, and smells like coffee from a spill earlier.
This week I also enjoyed a fun Barre class and dinner date with a friend. It was so nice to catch up with her, and the perfect little detox/retox combo.
It has been a busy week, so I have not been able to enjoy as long of workouts as I wanted to some days. But aside from the above Barre class and teaching, I was also able to enjoy a Zumba class, and some solo strength and cardio sessions. I am hoping to get some yoga in stat. I could definitely use some stretching and savasana. I am also planning to try to get a quick Barre workout in later today, to try to stay on top of my Barre challenge.
Around the web this week, I really enjoyed this post from Amanda with tips for working out in the am. I am definitely a morning workout person and totally agree that the more you have prepped the night before, the easier it is to get going.
I also loved this post from Ashley with some meal prep and time-saving in the kitchen tips. I literally made crock-pot chicken with salsa on Wednesday night.
I am also really looking forward to the Fitnessista’s Summer Shape Up, which starts on Monday. She always has such great workouts.
This weekend, I will be up before the sun tomorrow to jet to Denver. I am SO excited. I will be traveling on Monday, so no post then, but I will be back on Tuesday.
How was your week? Tell me about your weekend plans.
Hope you have a great one!
