Do you want summer to end?

August 21, 2013 · 8 comments

Happy Hump Day! Today, I woke up early for a quick 30-minute Booty Call (that’s TIU talk for light cardio before breakfast) and enjoyed a green juice by The Ripe Stuff before hopping in the shower to get ready for a day full of shooting new college friendly recipes!

We shot 4 videos, 3 food and 1 fitness and boy was it hot in my kitchen – hence my shiny forehead in the picture above. All were vegetarian (per your requests), one was vegan, and all were gluten free! I think you’re going to love them. 

I’m getting ready for another full week of “vacation” starting on Friday. I put a call into my Instagram followers to see who wanted to guest post on here during the week. I couldn’t believe the number hands that were raised. I think you are going to love the guests posts that I choose as they are all something, I would not be able to bring to you guys! If you haven’t heard back from me and sent an email, I’ll respond by tomorrow at 3 pm promise!

Today I shared a picture from this weekend showing me sprinting out in Provincetown during my workout on Facebook. When I was younger, I used to always take the weekends off, but these days, at least one is dedicated to a long run and sometimes a quick interval sweat session. Last weekend I did my favorite sweaty cardio interval workout that features 10:20:30 second intervals.

I tested out my new Oakley Forehand sunglasses and was excited that despite not being part of the “workout” line, they stayed put on my sweaty nose. I also tried out my new adidas running shoes that are part of the boost line. I felt like I was sprinting like the wind so they got a thumbs up too!

After the workout, I relaxed and had some much needed down time hanging out on our family friend’s boat. I like my weekends to start sweaty and end lazy. I must admit, I’m a little ready for summer to be over. I love traveling on the weekends to the beach but I’m getting a little burnt out as you might be able to tell on here.

Are you ready for summer to end, or could you live in a world where we have endless summers? Oh wait… I think that is called San Diego. Kidding my SD friends :)

I am so not ready for the summer to end. It just started! I go back to school next Thursday so I have one more week to live in peace and stress-free :/

NO, if summer ends that means we will have lots and lots of cold and snow in a few months! :(

Im so ready for Fall! Need some cool weather so I can run more/harder!!!!!
Yesterday, i found myself finding some of your older videos on youtube and remember how much you inspired me in 11th grade to quit eating junk and start really working out. Been two years…wow! I felt re-inspired! Lol

Another fall lover voting for summer to end :) Maybe one more great weekend at the beach. But seriously, I’m getting tired of sweating so much after biking to work.

Nope, wouldn’t want summer to end at all. Love your shoes, by the way! Are they Adidas or Reebok?

I could live with constant summer, for sure! Instead we have this “one week of summer” and “neverending winter” thing where I live, up north in Sweden. Can’t help but love my country anyway, though, despite the climate. :)
