Fitness Friday: NEW GYM.

Fun fact: I was at my new gym three times in 24 hours. Haha, can you tell I was excited for it to open? I couldn’t wait any longer and stopped in Monday night to check it out and did an easy 30 minutes of cardio, then I hit it up Tuesday morning for weight lifting and then again Tuesday evening for cardio. It’s gorgeous… I can’t wait to go there every day and it has drastically improved my motivation for the gym and particularly early mornings at the gym.

I use Jessie’s Girl and a workout remix of Jessie’s Girl in my spin class and it’s so fun. Everyone knows the song and when people hear it come on it’s hilarious to watch their reactions. I get the same effect with R. Kelly’s Ignition remix. Anyway, I stumbled upon this clip from Jimmy Kimmel and it’s awesome.

I had originally set my alarm to do strength before work yesterday but after going to bed at 11pm and hearing my alarm go off at 4:40am I just could NOT do it. I had a crazy day at work and got home, ate soup, went for a short walk to continue my FitBit step streak, and then curled up on my couch to catch up on episodes of Pitch. I knew I was going to have a late night tonight (heyyyoo Florida Georgia Line!) and so getting a good sleep was last night’s number one priority.


This has been one incredible week, topped by my convocation and a really great reflection on how far I came as a student going through six years of university. I quickly began to understand that a degree doesn’t equal a job in this world anymore and I set out furthering myself in every way possible to ensure I was employable by the end of my degree. It was pretty neat to leave convocation and head straight back to my full-time job that I secured before I graduated. Time to celebrate with some great friends, good beer, and even better country music!

Happy Friday all!
