Thoughts on Thursday



After working last weekend and having long hours at work this week... this girl could not be more excited to see Thursday as tonight will be the start to my weekend! Here's a few other thoughts I've had throughout the week...



+ I could not be more excited to be headed down South this weekend to celebrate a good friend's wedding, I can't wait to see the beautiful bride and spend the weekend with great friends!

+ I have officially snagged a dress for the wedding and although it's a little plane. I love the scallop detail and think I will be able to wear it to so many different events. This weekend I am looking to pair it with some fun earings and color clutch. 

+ Today is day 4 of working out this week and I am feeling great. I think my body has finally adjusted to going to bed earlier to wake up for the gym before work. Speaking of workout's, earlier this week I posted that I would share a few of my favorite fitness bloggers/work outs. 

Fitness bloggers:

These were some of the first blogs I followed and definitely inspired me to start my own. They always have a good mix up of work outs including cardio, intervals, and strength. 

Work out's that I have been trying lately have been...
Running intervals:
2 min walk warm up
10 sec sprint
20 sec run
30 jog
5 times
2 min walk
Repeat the interval until you have run each segment 5 times, with a total of 3 sets. 
By the end of this run I promise you will be sweaty and ready for a break. 

+ I beyond still obsessed with Orange Is The New Black and love watching it while warming up on the treadmill or elliptical in the morning. 

+ Call me crazy but when I asked for summer, I wasn't exactly asking for 99 degree weather every day... it is too hot for words.

+ Tomorrow I am giving myself a bit of a mental health day and can't wait- I have spin in the morning, followed by breakfast with friends, then off to my first massage! 

Happy Thursday to everyone!

Yours truly,
Emily
