Workout Gear

for today's workout I worked my back and biceps.  I lifted heavy and did about three different workouts for each muscle group (I'll go in detail later).
  Later, I met up with my friend LC and walked the green way in her neighborhood
 and then watched Teen Mom (don't judge me)& painted our nails.  It was
nice to relax with a friend. 
Like most days, I usually don't put effort into picking out my workout long as it's clean
and covers all my lady parts i'm good.

here are some photos of my workout gear!!!

I got a little trigger happy this morning and couldn't stop snapping Instagram pics.

Highlight of the Day:  Free breakfast, no traffic, and Bri dog'sThunder Shirt finally arriving via UPS. 
Awkward: a co-worker licking his finger and then snatching off a piece
of my pancake WITHOUT asking, yuck!

"how you doing?"

pretty in pink....or at least I think so lol.

Forever 21 Haul

Lately I've been trying to stay away from the mall for various reasons. Instead of
going to the mall, I've been shopping at second hand stores, online, etc.

I was in desperate need of solid tee's and tanks so I stopped at
Forever 21 on my way home from work.  I seriously hate going to
the mall.  Searching for parking and crowds are not my thing.  Forever21 is
ALWAYS filled with teeny boppers. Luckily, I was in and out of the mall
in about 35minutes (all time record). 

{solid tanks$2.50 each!}

{I splurged on a pair of colored skinnys...well they were only $15 so I had to buy them}

Spring is finally here and I am so excited and I just can't hide it!  I seriously think
that I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder because I've been in
the best mood lately now that its sunny and warm out.  I'm really looking forward to patio drinking,
sun dresses, flip flops, and outdoor bands.
The ground hog lied about us having six more weeks of winter :-) 

(Below are a few pictures from Instagram!)

{Gorgeous dogwood trees that I passed on my way to the dog park}

I worked my legs at the gym last night and I'm crazy sore right now. I'm having trouble
and walking BUT I love this feeling because it means
that I pushed myself last night.
I'm determined to get back into tip tip shape ASAP.

Top of The Morning!

The best part of the morning has ALWAYS
been breakfast for me. 
What can I say, I
love to eat!
I was in a rush this morning so I only had time to
grab a banana, yogurt, and Agua (water).

{via iPhone}

I'm super pumped because I just
received an email from Beachbody stating that they
are going to hold a certification workshop for P90X.
What this means for me is not only can I sell P90X BUT I will also be able
to personal train (woot, woot!).
If you live in NC shoot me an email and maybe we can train together.
The workshop is in Vegas and I'm ecstatic!

Jin or Jim?

I spent the majority of my day on Sunday assembling my new MALM dresser from Ikea. I feel like my name should be Jim because I feel super manly.   My fingers and wrists are killing me  from screwing in nails& hammering (big thanks to rheumatoid arthritis, grr) BUT I'm stoked that I no longer have to keep my clothes on the floor!

{voila!  here is the finished product...please excuse my mess}

I will share more pictures of my room as soon as I am finished decorating.
How was YOUR weekend?  Did you celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

Happy Monday!

What's for lunch?

{Mandarin& Grape Tomato Salad}

I recently moved and I have no Internet at the moment....I feel out of touch with all of my blog friends.  I'll try to post some when I'm at work, but  I'm not making any promises :-)

Hello there Friday! at last we meet again.  What took you so long to get here?
I've been waiting impatiently to meet you!

I overslept this morning and only had about 15 minutes to dress and take my dog out. Talk about being frazzled (whomp, whomp). I'm blaming it on my heavy workout, the 2 glasses of red wine that I drank before bed, and the heavy rain.

{running late today but I still managed to put on my RubyWoo lipstick}
All Black Everything.........

My sisters are coming to NC Saturday to hang with me...I'm super excited because I haven't seen them since the holidays. Oh, and my bestie Kristen is celebrating her birthday!  It looks like I won't be getting any sleep this weekend....I guess that I better stock up on energy drinks *murp*

Do you have any big plans this weekend? I want to hear all about them....please share!

Casual Sunday

“"Style" is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style.”

{my favorite Nike sneakers}
Sunday was a sneaker& sweatshirt kind of day.  I didn't take a full body pic because Sunday was also a No make-up  day.  I spent the whole day yesterday recovering from Saturday...I partied hard for a friends 30th Birthday (I'll post pictures later).
