Hello and happy Friday! I’m taking a break from the St. Louis recap posts to join in on some Friday favorites today! I’m planning to get a few errands done today so that I can enjoy these last few days of vacation before going back to work again on Monday. I will say that a week & half off from work has been GLORIOUS. I need to do it more often! 🙂
After a week of not doing ANY sort of exercise + eating junk, I was really feeling it! I hit up a Body Pump class for the first time in months which was a good way to get back into my routine. Yesterday, we went to the 12:15 TBC class and pretty much died! The trainer decided to do one of the toughest workouts – a 300. Their version of a 300 involves doing 20 reps of different exercises and then running the stairs once; then 15 reps of everything & running stairs twice; then 10 reps & running stairs three times; finally 5 reps & running stairs four times. Doesn’t sound bad when written out but when you have to do 20 burpees & then immediately run the stairs 4 times, it’s kind of ridiculous. Oh, and by running stairs, I mean running up & down three flights. I’m super sore after all that so I might take it easy today. 🙁
We renewed our Costco membership a few weeks ago & stocked up on some things when we got back from our trip. Including this 4 pack of Halo Top pints for only $11.99! Just one pint is normally about $5 (regular price) or $4 (on sale) at our regular grocery store so we definitely had to pick this up. I haven’t had any Halo Top since my dairy-free venture at the beginning of May!
We also went to Aldi for the first time yesterday! I don’t know why we’ve never shopped there before because we got a lot of good stuff for an amazing price.
I found a pair of slip on sneakers at H&M in St. Louis for only $18 and passed them up. You think I can find them online? Of course not. I plan to hit up the one here but I doubt they will have them! I’ve been wanting a new pair for quite awhile now but have been super picky! The ones I thought I wanted from Target were a disappointment as they were super uncomfortable just walking around the store. So now it’s between these three….
Sunday marks our one year anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been a year already! The day went by so quickly after months of planning but it was so much fun. I wish I could do it over again! Minus the heat…. I love hot weather but 100 degrees + a heavy dress was NOT fun.
Lastly, I wanted to share that my friend Alice just launched her blog last week & I’m so so excited for her! Check it out: A Silver Lined Life.
Have a great weekend everyone!
