This weekend was all about catching up on my personal life and getting organized. I think I did a pretty good job!
On Saturday Adam and I hit up the gym and I did some core work, ran 30 easy minutes on the treadmill and did lots of stretching. My hip is feeling almost 100% these days and I’m loving it!
^ Look at my thigh gap! LOL
I was recently reading about a popular healthy living blogger who apparently has been photoshopping all of her pictures for at least the last year if not longer. Her readers rightfully feel deceived, but I hope that most readers know that almost every blogger will often select shots that are taken from flattering angles.
You know I don’t have a thigh gap and I also didn’t photoshop that photo above. My body is just situated in a way that gives a specific appearance. Maybe this is a bad example because I’m not standing up, but I think you get what I mean.
I don’t think it’s just bloggers who are guilty of posting flatting photos, I think almost everyone who posts to social media does this. Is it bad? I don’t know. On one hand I think we shouldn’t be ashamed of how we look, and on the other hand I appreciate that bloggers take the time to sort through pictures and select the best one when there are multiple options available.
Anyway, I won’t be posting any more thigh gap inspired photos because I think it’s ridiculous to fake it… and I apologize for going off on this little tangent!
After the gym Adam and I hightailed it over to meet family for a birthday dinner.
We brought a bouquet of flowers as part of the gift. I don’t know why I don’t do this more often. Flowers are so pretty and I think they really brighten up a room. Plus, I think people feel special when they receive flowers, I know I do (hint hint, Adam!). 🙂
Sunday morning Adam and I planned to get up early, but when we told Cecil it was time to get up he gave us a look like we were crazy:
So we all slept in until noon instead :).
It was a scorcher of a day yesterday – we hit a high of 95 degrees in the mid afternoon!
When I finally headed out for my run at 6:30pm it was still 90 degrees with a feels like temp of 100 degrees.
When Ali said we officially skipped spring in Florida this year she was right!
Since I’ve mostly been running on the treadmill this past week my body didn’t handle the heat well at all.
I love running at the beach in the evenings – and I’m not a morning person at all – but this upcoming week I’m going to try running in the mornings when it’s a bit cooler.
I’ve been getting home from work really late so I think re-arranging my running schedule temporarily will be good all around… even if the thought of getting up in the 5am hour makes me CRINGE!
Is it starting to warm up where you are? Are you running in shorts now or still in long tights?
IMPORTANT: Can you recommend a running skirt that doesn’t have built-in shorts? Or that has 5-6in inseam on the built-in shorts? I currently wear Sparkle Athletic skirts but would like to branch out.
