Siblings reunite!

Happy Friday!

This morning started early, but for a great reason! My brother flew in from California to visit me for the weekend and I couldn’t be happier. 🙂

So far, we’ve hit the gym (obviously a must when we are together), eaten at Root and later had delicious Indian takeout for dinner, stopped by BU so I could get a coaching in, and visited around the Prudential Center. I would’ve liked to do more outside but this weather isn’t being very cooperative, and the forecast is announcing rain all weekend… Not to mention he hasn’t slept since Wednesday night because he took the red-eye out of Cali! But I’m just happy he’s here to hang out with me and let me take him around to all my favorite Boston spots.

The rest of our weekend involves plans to go to the wharf, dinner and a recital with some of my friends, birthday drinks, and any other shenanigans we get up to. 😉

Have a great weekend!

Sleep right!

Happy Monday!

I had a pretty good first day of work this morning followed by a gym sesh- so glad I thought to pack my gym clothes in my bag just in case I had the energy to get in a run after work.
My evening again included a long rehearsal but I am really thankful I was released early- at 10 rather than 11! Knowing I’m going to be up early again tomorrow for work, that extra hour is definitely not going to waste.

Mahler time

Today I’m happy about: listening to Mahler’s 4th Symphony and learning the fourth movement! It’s been a low-key Sunday around here, with a trip to the gym followed by a lot of reading for classes and a bit of studying for my personal training exam that’s coming up sooner than I’d like.

 

What do you do on your Sundays? I love to take the day to get ready for the week ahead with some reading, accompanied by a cup of hot tea of course.

Silence the voice that’s keeping you down

Today I’m happy about: not giving in to my inner voice’s negativity. I had planned to workout this morning but just didn’t feel like leaving my cozy bed. I had a nagging guilt that followed me all morning because I didn’t go, even though I was listening to my body.
Since I began my journey into intuitive eating over the past 3 weeks, I have felt much freer and was able to let go of a lot of my self-imposed rules. However, this has also caused my body to change in reaction to this, and although I know it’s for the best, and I am feeling stronger than ever during my workouts, I am worried that I am ballooning up and gaining too much weight.
The reality is that I probably haven’t gained more than a few pounds, and it’s just my body’s way of adjusting to being fed what it craves rather than being constantly deprived. But even though I know these changes are all for the good, the part of me that has relied on control for so long, is having trouble letting go.

Although this was a challenging day, I am really happy I didn’t give in to these feelings, and still enjoyed a day of delicious and nutritious meals, without worrying about how much I should or shouldn’t have.

I hope your week is off to a great start!

Cozy

Today I’m happy about: getting my booty to the gym this morning even though I wasn’t feeling it, and my cozy bed seemed like an easier choice.
I am also totally loving the colder weather that’s setting in here in Boston! This California girl is going to need to go shopping for some warmer layers to keep enjoying the cold as it continues to drop below zero, but I can’t wait for my first city snow!

Happy Saturday! I hope you’re having a marvelous weekend!

It’s a loko kind of weekend

Today I’m happy about: being in Tahoe with my bros! We woke up late, went out for breakfast, drove over 2.5 hours to go gym (because we’re crazy and we know it) and are going to settle in for a night of shenanigans with a few cans of Four Loko. I really hope I survive… Everything in moderation, except moderation, right?

Here’s to the weekend!
