Ultra-upset I’m not at Ultra….

Hello Healthy People,

MIAMI, FLORIDA. Ultra Music Festival. Aka probably one of the best times you will ever forget….Although I can’t go this year I jammed out to a bunch of new music at the gym while wearing obnoxious neon workout clothes…it was almost like I was there.

There are a few things that really motivate me to workout. Some large muscular guy like Shaun T yelling at me to “LETS GOOOO” or music. For the majority of the time music is the best way to push me harder or make me work longer.

I probably made a fooool out of myself at the gym today jamming out to this music but I got a killer running/spinning workout.

“im the president. the president of the U-S-A. fa la la la la”

So alas, here is my playlist. I usually just click shuffle but it’s up to you. It’s a mix of old and new, songs I know will make me work and other new ones that will keep me guessing…

1.)Don’t You Worry Child – Swedish House Mafia

Power Songs: Hip-Hop/Rap

Hellllo Healthy People,

DRUM ROLL…..

I Graduated!!!!! Woo (also the reason why I haven’t blogged in a few days! but I’m back for good now I promise!)

Before it rained….

Ceremonies began at 9am on Saturday…aka 6am wake up so we could all take showers and get there early for photos. The day began with a beautiful sunrise…but quickly quickly brought storm clouds and with it…rain.

Rain is lucky right?

post rain and post official graduation!!! woo

I didn’t do a challenge this week because I didn’t have time to post for this week….but don’t think that’s a break! Try doing one of the challenges I’ve posted about already or continue with last week’s challenge of working out with a friend and being their motivator!!

This week I made a video about power songs to work out too…maybe they will give you some ideas, maybe not…but it is something to consider when making your workout playlists! So next time a song comes on and pumps you up make a mental note that that would be your “power” song.

 

Definitely laugh at the awkward dancing and just plain randomness to this video. It was around 3am and I was a little out of it haha! But I do hope you enjoy!!

 

Happy eating and exercising!!

Me writing my 35 page paper all I can think about is:

I cannot wait to have my booty on the beach with Luke Bryan music blasting and all the time in the world to relax and work on my tan 🙂
