Feeling Frisky

Hello, lovelies!

I’ve had an unexpected break in the homework load, so I thought I’d post another update.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything (other than a recipe), let alone posted anything health-related. My bad. Do people still say that? I do sometimes. 90s kid 4eva! I’m just keeping it real.

Have you heard of Tone It Up? If you haven’t, you should check it out! Meet my trainers: Karena and Katrina. Aren’t they gorgeous?

10 Goals for the Week {3}

How did your week go? I found myself losing motivation once the weekend hit. I’m hoping a fresh list will rekindle the fire.

Last week’s goals:


1. Go on a date with Spencer On Friday night, we went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday. It wasn’t one-on-one, but it still was a great date!

2. Spend time with my mom I went out to lunch with my mom on Wednesday this past week. It was good to catch up with her, especially considering that it’s tax season.


3. Empty all boxes labeled “kitchen” and put everything away Aside from a box of cookbooks and half a box of spice jars, everything is put away. I only got 20 magnetic spice jars from Ikea, so the rest will stay in a box for a few more weeks.

4. Hang up all clothes in closet We hung up clothes until we ran out of hangers. We need a dresser – badly!


5. Exercise 4 times Done and done.
