Friday Favs

Happy Friday Everyone! Here are my favorite five things this week:
1. Yoga
I went back to hot yoga this week for the first time since we moved to CO, and I had completely forgotten how wonderful it makes my body feel. 
2. Being able to spend time with my dad & Terrie when they visited Fort Collins this week. 
3. This Quote. 
Too often we focus on the negatives in life: what we are lacking, our flaws, the mean things people have said. This week I’ve made it a point to let those things go & focus on the positive side: all of the good qualities in myself & others, the way things are going right and appreciating what I have, knowing that I could have it much worse. This has made all the difference!
4. Finding my “hair home” in Fort Collins! 
Third times a charm, apparently, as this was the third stylist I’ve tried before finding a good fit. My friend, Erin, has been going to Europa, an Aveda salon & I finally gave it a try. Needless to say, I am very pleased!
5. Running
That’s right, next week we are back at it again, beginning to prep for our second half marathon in October. I learned my lesson about overtraining last time, and decided to go with a super simple 12 week training program that I stumbled upon in SELF magazine this summer. Bonus – it’s the same one Ellie Goulding used this year & she rocks!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Hello April + Motivation Monday

April has always been a favorite month of mine, mostly because my birthday falls in it, but today is extra special because it also marks the first Motivation Monday on the blog!

In the first three months since we’ve been living in Fort Collins I’ve been able to knock 10 pounds off, but I still have just as much to go. So what better way to kick it up a notch than to launch into #kickassApril?

This happens to be last year’s calendar, but you can just follow along by the date if you want to join me.

Happy April!
