photo (25)Good morning, guys! Happy summer solstice! Today is the longest day of the year, so make sure you do something extra fun with all the extra sunshine! I had a little a.d.d. the other day and decided to make some changes to the blog. Sometimes a little change is all you need to make a big difference in life. I even decided to add a little change to my run this morning. Usually I’m super hung up on pace and time, and sometimes forget to listen to my body. Or just run for the hell of it. So this morning, I did a different kind of run. I’m gonna call it a stoplight run. I ran up to City Hall, down Market Street, through the Italian Market, up Passyunk, then back down Broad Street. But rather than worry about keeping a good pace, I just listened to the stop lights. When they were green, I’d pick up the pace, almost to a full on sprint, and then slow down when they turned red. I wasn’t worried about distance or time. I just listened to those flashy lights that I usually am screaming at while driving.

  • 4 sets of 10 reps of calf raises
  • 4 sets of 10 reps of lunges
  • 4 sets of 10 reps of leg press
  • 4 sets of 10 reps of quad extensions
  • 4 sets of 10 reps of squats
  • 4 sets of 8 Burpees
  • 4 sets of 8 Dips
  • 4 sets of 5 Pushups
  • 4 sets of 15 Dumbbell Curls

What a lovely way to kick off Friday. My horoscope told me that I need to disconnect from social media, which is perfect since I’ll be  headed down the shore tomorrow. Oh oh oh! And take a look at that beautiful Alex and Ani bracelet that my mommy and sister got for me for my birthday. LOVE.

Have a fantastic weekend! Talk to you Monday 🙂
