Hello and welcome!

Thanks for stoping by! That's me, and my super cute and spunky 1 year old, Nora. When we're not laying on the floor taking selfies, we also like to bake, take lots of pretty photos, and practice yoga. Aside from posting way too many pictures of Nora on instagram, I also take pretty wedding picures and make pretty baby items. So browse around, and keep up with all the latest.
More about me...

I curse you winter, and all of your bittery coldness. Its finally gotten to be too cold around here to run outside, and so I’m left exercising on my elliptical. Which actually isn’t terrible. A few weeks ago I decided to start watching a tv series I haven’t seen before to help the time on the elliptical go by quicker, and so now, every Wednesday morning I put on the next episode of Scrubs. I’m starting all the way at the beginning since I’ve only ever seen a handful of episodes from this series. It really helps the workout go by so quickly!

Well, week 5 was great in terms of my Yoga, which I am loving more and more everyday, but really crappy in terms of my cardio. I just can’t seem to get back into the habit of doing cardio. I think its the fact that I can’t really run outside. AND, this time of year is so incredibly busy! Christmas shopping, cleaning the house up from Thanksgiving (which was 3 weeks ago!), baking for Christmas, finding the perfect Christmas tree. And the fact that it now gets dark at 4:30pm everyday really puts a damper on my cardio efforts. I just have to try that much harder in Week 6!

Here’s my breakdown from Week 5:
*Monday: Rest day
*Tuesday: Yoga 36 minutes,DVD – Crunch Perfect Yoga Workout.
*Wednesday: Elliptical 21 minutes. .66 miles, 156 avg. heart rate, 235 cals burned.
*Thursday: Yoga 36 minutes, DVD – Crunch Perfect Yoga Workout.
*Friday: Yoga 36 minutes, DVD – Crunch Perfect Yoga Workout.
*Saturday: Spent the day cleaning the house in the morning and then looking for our perfect Christmas tree… needless to say we didn’t go running, and it was bittery cold out!
*Sunday: Covered a wedding and didn’t get a chance run or elliptical. Instead, we decorated our tree <3 (pics to come!) I'm going to focus on getting at least two days of cardio in Week 6. If I can at least get into that groove, I'll be in good shape to get back to my 3 days of cardio a week. Here's to hoping! If you're curious how Week's 1-4 went, you can check them out here! Intro
