Fitness Friday: Jasper, Walking, and more.

Welcome back to Fitness Friday! This week has been pretty busy (okay, I should stop saying that because who isn’t busy) but I managed to get in some good workouts and lots of de-stressing time in the form of a trail run. I am totally breaking out and craving sugar right now which are two big signs of stress for me as well as not being able to fall asleep in my usual 0.2 seconds. I’m hoping that with a few things being checked off my to-do list I’ll stop the stress signs but I also know that I have conscious control of my diet and skin care and time I turn off my light so it’s about 80% my fault. πŸ˜‰ I’m looking forward to getting into my new place where I can establish a new routine and find a new gym!

The GoodLife in my new neighbourhood isn’t opening until the end of October so I’m looking at my options for a gym for the first two months. I will either forego the gym and try and do more at-home workouts and runs and such, but I know that means I will probably skip more than I would with a gym… oooooor I try something different like a month or two doing yoga or crossfit. It’s too expensive to do multiple things (i.e. yoga, and crossfit, and rock climbing, etc.) so I think I’ll have to pick one and stick with it. There’s also a gym close to my work but not close to home. Ugh. The struggle. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Have a fantastic weekend lovelies!
