I know it’s been a long time since we’ve had a chance to catch up but I wanted to check in with you today on #WeirdWorkout. It’s important to mix things up when it comes to your workouts to keep things interesting and exciting, keep your body guessing about what’s coming next and to try out some fun new things that you might not normally try. So when prAna and Organic Valley reached out to me to partner with them to help promote their #WeirdWorkout contest, I was all in.
Before we get to the details of the super awesome contest and a discount that you’ll want to make sure to check out, I thought I would share some ideas of how you can get your #WeirdWorkout on!

Happy Thursday Everyone!!!
Today I want to talk about a new product I recently was able to try out (SPOILER ALERT: There’s a giveaway at the end, so don’t forget to leave a comment to enter!). Since I’ve started training for my half marathon this coming August, compression gear has become a big part of recovery to help keep my body happy and able to continue to log miles every week in order to make it to race day strong and ready to kick some butt. I’ve been religious about wearing compression socks or sleeves after every single run, even if it meant sneakily hiding them under my pants at work, to make sure I was speeding up my recovery and providing extra support for my tired muscles when I needed it the most.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that you were able to log some outside miles! I had a pretty abnormal week of training this week. I was hosting some fitness classes for a board I’m on at work so I spent my cross training days working out in a new-to-me gym, trying out some dance fitness classes and meeting up with a local running group. All the changes seemed to throw everything off a little, making my runs this week seem a little harder than normal for me. Needless to say, I’m ready to get back into my normal routine this week.

I hope you’re weekend is off to a great start so far! My week was absolutely insane, so I’m trying to do as much NOTHING this weekend as humanly possible! Basically binge watching NCIS before the new season starts, watching Sunday football (GO HAWKS!) and checking in with you fine people are the only things on my agenda and I’m totally okay with that.
Do you know what time it is? It’s time for Make Me Happy Monday where I share all of the things that are making me smile lately in hopes to bring a smile to your face or give you an idea of something fun to check out! So let’s dig in!
Friday is finally here and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve got big plans for this weekend that I’m excited to get to! I have an entire day of crafts, cooking and movies planned for Saturday with my mom and aunt since the weather is supposed to be yucky around here. It will definitely be fun and hopefully productive too because we’ve got a lot of things to accomplish on our agenda, like making a healthy crockpot dinner, a dairy-free Halloween dessert, apple nachos and taking LOTS of photos for some upcoming blog posts. I’m trying to improve my blog photo skills a little this weekend because I’m working on some posts that require a little more professional looking photos than the ones I usually take from my iPhone, so fingers crossed that all works out. We will see!
So here are five random things I wanted to share with you this Friday. Make sure you share some randomness in the comments section below. Enjoy!
1. I got a super exciting email yesterday morning saying that I was selected to be a Sweat Pink Ambassador! EEEEKKK!
