OOTD: Workout Edition

Hey Everyone,
I woke up with lots of energy today! It was chilly outside so that may have had something to do with this energy but my run was at a much quicker pace than normal. Before my run I decided to film an OOTD: workout edition. I'm sorry for the bad quality. This video was filmed on my laptop webcam! What do you guys wear to run?

Fall Foods

Last night I had a dream about Eggnog. I can't remember any details about my dream...all I know is when I woke up I was thinking about Eggnog and I really wanted some. I headed to Publix hoping that my dream meant that they are selling it now. I go to the milk section and there it is!!! Pumpkin Spice Eggnog and regular Eggnog. Regular Eggnog is my favorite but since Eggnog is now going to be out until Christmas I decided to get Pumpkin Spice Eggnog for fall.

I know Eggnog is not very good for you in any way. My plans are to just to have this bottle and then don't buy anymore until the week before christmas! 

I also bought a Pumkin Muffin from Dunkin Donuts!

Now I have some sweet October treats to eat while I work on my homework! I hope you enjoy your Sunday!!

Dorm Organizing

The key to dorm organizing is utilizing your space. Here is a picture of one side of my dorm. As you can see if you can hang stuff off of furniture or neatly place your shoes on top of furniture space can be saved. You can also almost make your shoes set up like a store on top of your dresser if you neatly organize them. A behind the door hook is a great idea for purses, hats and book bags. Also hooks for hanging up towels is a good idea.

This is a shoe rack I found at Target for under $4 dollars. It fits perfectly right by my door or you can even put it under you bed. 

I would also recommend a hook right by your door. As soon as you walk in you can place your keys on the hook. Just in case you have to leave in a hurry, you will always know where your keys are located.

 Here is just a close up picture of the behind the door hook. I also got this hook in Target from the Dollar section. You can see how many bags and hats it holds! 

Here is just a close up of my dresser. You can see I have my shower bag, towels hanging off of this and then some more of my shoes are on top. 

If you have any organizational questions let me know!

I have work later on tonight and decided to have an early dinner. I've been craving Chipotle all weekend, so I got myself a Chicken Burrito Bowl with the tortilla on the side!

I was feeling a little tired and sick before I ate this. About a half hour after eating this I feel great! A Chipotle Bowl keeps the doctor away! :D

Training and Breakfast!

I am onto my second week of half marathon training. So far so good! This morning I ran 3 miles and then did my 50 Burpees. I don't think I am going to post a youtube video of all 50 days though. The videos just seem to boring. Tell me what you think of the videos. Other than that my training has been great! I've even just been craving healthy foods. Here is what I had for breakfast:

I also made the Vanilla Nut coffee today and used the Silk French Vanilla Creamer! It was delicious! Breakfast was very good today! For lunch I also had blackened salmon on a salad. I am excited for my training tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow! Wish me luck! 


Found this tribal pattern wallet at Target on sale for a very inexpensive price! I love the bright colors! It looks very summery! Not so good for fall but I can wait until next summer to use this wallet.

Lazy Sunday

Today was a relaxing, me day. Tomorrow is back to reality with school and work. I've been on fall break all week long. As far as my day goes.... I woke up, I brushed my teeth, changed and went to Starbucks Coffee. About a month ago, I bought the Starbucks Brand coffee that you make at home and after that is used you can bring the bag in for a free Tall Coffee. I then walked to my normal Slacklining spot and set up for about an hour. I decided to do my 50 Burpee challenge out side today.

My legs really had no energy today but I was doing my best. After this I decided that will be my cross-training workout for the day.

I then left to go get a pedicure. My feet have been bad  terrible, from running so much. I had dry skin and blisters all around my toes. I was in need of a pedicure. I was going to go for a fall color. I had a nice deep tan in my hand until I saw a super sparkly OPI color. It was apparently a Miss America color and that is what I decided to get on my toes.

After I got my toes done, I went to Target today to buy a few things. I always look around at the clothes just to see if they have any great sales. Today I bought a few Christmas presents for people for great deals. I shop earlier than anyone else I know! I love the Holidays and love buying presents for people. I've been waiting for Eggnog to be in Publix for about a week now and so far no luck. :-( I did find this Holiday flavored coffee in Target today on sale.

 I am usually not a fan of flavored coffee but since I'm in the Holiday mood already I had to buy it! I will let you know what I think of it.

I think this is officially the longest and most detailed blog post I have ever written! I feel like If I had more chill days I would be able to post more like these! If you would prefer blog posts like this one, let me know!

Question of the day:

When do you start buying gifts for people?

Beautiful Weather!

Today was perfect for a run! The sun was shining, the humidity was low and the temperature was about 70 degrees. I ran 6.8 miles today in 60 minutes and 10 seconds. I am on the last day of week 1 of my half marathon training schedule and my legs are hurting just a tad. This week not only did I start my half marathon training but I also decided to start the 50 day Burpee challenge. This challenge makes me push my legs just a little bit farther after my run so I can do the 50 burpees! Tomorrow I have a rest or cross-train day and I will end up either going in the gym on the bicycle or slacklining. I am in need of some yoga so I might do a tara stiles yoga video off of youtube. My legs feel tight! Here is Day 3 of my 50 Burpees:

Half Marathon and 50 Burpees for 50 Days!

Yesterday I decided that I needed to find some sort of race so I have motivation to train. I thought a half marathon would be a great next step for me. I am going to do a race either in December, January or Feb. I am still trying to decide which half marathon would be best for me. The one in Decemeber is the OUC half marathon in Orlando. Then the Disney half marathon is in January and the FIT Half marathon is in Feb on the beach. I'm not sure about my first half marathon being on the beach just beacause the sand will make it hard to run. If you have done any half marathons let me know which is your favorite! Here is my training schedule:

I got this schedule from Self Magazine. Today I completed my Thursday workout for week 1. I ran 3 miles up and down hills and then just headed home on flat ground for the last mile. It started raining during my run but other than that, it was a great run!

On Twitter I also saw a user named @sweatybetties who put out a challenge to do 50 burpees for 50 days. You can break it up into sets if you need to but as long as you do 50 over the course of the day you are good! This morning after my run I did my first 50! :-) I am going to try to make a video every day for my 50 burpees. Here is Day 1:

Slackline Club?

So I follow a few slackline blogs and one that I read this morning really insprired me. The blog said that he went to a small christian school and he started a slackline club at his college. He got on the front page of the newspaper and everyone at the school is loving slacklining.

This is something I would love to do at my college. When I've asked in the past if I could slackline on campus the anwser is no. I don't think they would let me start a slackline club then right? I guess I could give it a try. If you have any advice with this let me know.

How to Cook Plantains in the Microwave!

Orange Slices?!?!

I went in Sports Authority a few weeks ago looking for running sneakers. The things you find when you are looking for something else is amazing! Sports Authority has a lot on sale. They have clothing and shoes on sale. I ended up not getting sneakers but instead I got spandex shorts to wear under my shorts when I run.

I did not need another pair of spandex but the pattern and price was to hard to resist! I live in Florida, of course I need spandex with Orange slices all over them! :-)

I'm Not Quiet!

I found this t-shirt at Pac Sun on Saturday and could not resist! It was on sale for 6 bucks and I liked the saying. I wore it to the beach yesterday.

How was your weekend?

Do you like the New Blog Layout?

I can always go back and change it, but I'm not sure if I am liking the new layout of my blog. I feel like it focuses on the picture on my blog. This means unless my pictures are amazing nobody will want to look at my blog!

What do you think of the new layout on my blog?
