Friday – Getting Back Into The Swing Of Things

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!

Linking up with Andrea, Erika, Narci, Amanda, and April!


  1. those workouts are NO JOKE. my trainer does something similar but there are a lot of plyo/slam balls and weights involves and it’s never fun! (but you feel so badass after)

      Right! They like to do that workout every once in awhile as a way to gauge your fitness. Since it was only a 45 minute class, the trainer did cut down the number of different exercises compared to the hour class. It still super tough though, especially since he likes to mix up the number of reps with the number of stair runs!

    I absolutely MUST know if the halo top at Costco came in any other flavors. It’s my new obsession, but I can’t do birthday cake.

      Unfortunately, they only had birthday cake. 🙁 🙁 HOPEFULLY they add some other flavors someday!
