Brrrrr things have certainly cooled down here in the Northeast and I was pretty sad to turn on the heat full-time this week. I’m a summer girl, I love the sunshine, warmth and flip-flops. I also like not having to warm up my car before going places. I was pretty bummed out earlier this week when I arrived at my car and saw this:
I’m sure my husband was laughing as I whimpered like a little girl about the arrival of a dusting of snow. People claim if you move away you would miss the seasons. I really don’t believe that story. I would be happy to never see my winter boots again.
I’m trying desperately to maintain some level of whole 30 eating but it’s been a rough go this round. Never underestimate the power of determination and this round I haven’t been as steadfast as I was the first round.
Last night I made myself a stir fry with coconut aminos. I’m telling you if you aren’t using coconut aminos make the switch and ditch soy sauce forever. They are so good and still have the same flavor as soy sauce.
This week was a little crazy schedule wise so I took advantage of a few 5:30am classes this week. I’m not sure I’ve ever been to the gym before it opened before! There is a first time for everything. I was excited to get in a quick half hour HIIT class to start my day. Sadly somehow I missed the fact that it has turned into a barefoot class. Barefoot classes are a great workout but for me I almost HAVE to be in a mood to go to one. After a half hour my feet were not happy with me and it was time to go.
A nice 5:20am selfie…because the world needs more selfies…
I was really hoping for a half hour sweat fest so I went home and hit the weights for a few sets to get my day moving. I’m looking forward to making more of these 5:30 classes happen. Two days a week they are HIIT style and the third is more of a barefoot. I’ll probably skip the barefoot but HIITs I’m all for!
I’ve been trying to get ready for the Halloween parties and tons of extras that Halloween will bring next week. Both of my kids have school parties and friend parties oh my! I visited my local Target to get some last-minute dollar bin goodies. Seriously I love those bins! After grabbing some cute decorations and markers I like to stroll through the active section. And I’m soooo happy I did. I came across these super super cute 3/4 zip C9 jackets for just $20!
I love the ruffle on the back. Sadly there aren’t thumbholes but for this jacket style I was ok with it. And in a nonscale victory I was excited to buy my first in a LONG time outerwear size Small! SCORE!
I also stumbled across a site called 6pm.com. I might be late to this party as well? But I ended up finding some super cute New Balance capris for $10 with FREE Shipping! I’m hoping that I like them when they arrive. fingers crossed 😉
Question of the day: Do you like Barefoot classes? Is it possible to leave Target without spending $100?
