hi everyone!
happy monday!
how was the weekend?!
it was literally the most beautiful weekend of the year so far.

after work friday, i spent the evening walking around and grabbed some mexican food with a friend.
saturday, i woke up and went for a 4 mile run, then did some yoga, and a short ab tabata set (such a good run!). the rooms and i had a delightful brunch. went shopping with my mom and sisters. spent the afternoon pinteresting and creating workout plans for my mom, sibs, and me (my learn to love lifting plan) at starbucks, and ended the night with a movie.
it was just the best day. so much country music. windows open. shorts on. ah, just wonderful.

sunday was church, a little meal prep, and grocery shopping. i went over my mom’s to go over her workout plan. and attempted, very patiently to show my siblings how to do a proper push-up and squat. i certainly have my work cut out for me with those guys. half the battle was just getting them off the couch! i’ll have my whole family enjoying exercising and moving in no time.

but alas, the weekend came to an end. and another monday is upon us. which means, it’s time for another edition of ‘well, hello monday…’
