Save your hairstyle after a tough workout with this simple hairstyle for second day hair.

Second Day Hair

How often do you wash your hair? Until a few of years ago, I washed mine every.single.day. No matter how many beauty articles I read saying otherwise, I just couldn’t behind it. I finally decided to “train” my hair to last just one more day and worked on getting the hang of dry shampoo. This revolution came about the same time as my submersion into fitness, which presented its own set of obstacles (read: lots of scalp sweat). Over the years, I’ve developed a routine that allows for about three days between washes, even with the toughest workouts in between.

Active Fashion & Last Week’s Workouts

Active Fashion

Tank (similar) // Capris (similar) // Sports Bra (similar) // Sneakers

The outfit above is one of my favorites and is constantly on repeat. The pants are Adidas, the shoes are ASICS, and the top and bra are both Fabletics. It took me FOREVER to find a good bra from Fabletics, and now they don’t seem to be making that one anymore. Oh well, I still have all of these. These items are old (a year+ in some cases!), but I’ve linked some similar items if you’re interested.

Last week was my first week on summer break. Are you tired of me talking about having the summer off yet?! I let myself sleep in most days and be a little lazy, which felt amazing. This weekend, I’m switching back to my early (4:45 a.m.) wake-up calls so I can fit in my workout before my husband leaves for work.

Sunday, 6/4/17:

I had to work last Saturday morning and then my husband and I spent the afternoon cleaning out my classroom. That left me wanting a good stretch on Sunday! I did one of the PiYo Strength workouts (Full Body Blast). I have sung my praises for PiYo here and here before, but these workouts use sliders to kick the stretch up a notch. For such tiny pieces of equipment, the sliders kick my butt.


Monday, 6/5/17:

I kicked the week off with a quick upper body and abs circuit using the Jillian Michaels app and then went out for a run. Pippa and I go in about 3.25 miles and she loved it. Speaking of running with Pippa, did you see that we were featured on Running With Ollie a couple of weeks ago?!

Tuesday, 6/6/17:

Tuesday I was completely draggy. I was already starting to fall into the pattern of laying around and not knowing what day it was. This was one of those days when the best part of the workout was when it was finally over. I did Sunset Sweat, a total body workout from Beach Babe 5, and the new Tone It Up Ball Workout. Honestly… I hate stability ball workouts. Due to my lack of core strength, balance, and just my general awkwardness, they’re difficult for me. I felt like it was a waste, so I tacked on the BodyLove booty workout too.

Wednesday totally redeemed itself, being Global Running Day, and all. 🙂 I got in Absolutely Bootyful, a no-equipment booty and abs workout from Beach Babe 5, and 3 miles with Pippa. By the time we finished it was so hot, but as always, so worth it.

Thursday, 6/8/17:

Rest day. Total rest, not active rest. This is rare for me!

Friday, 6/9/17:

On Friday, I got in an upper body workout (the #TIUFlexFriday workout), and followed it up with a 3.25 mile run. It was one of those runs that even though it was the same route and same distance that I’d done 100 times, it just felt hard. I couldn’t wait for it to be over.

Saturday, 6/10/17:

I wrapped up my week of workouts with “The Bobby Call”, which is a hilarious HIIT featuring Karena’s husband, Bobby. I’m always trying to convince my husband to work out with me. He always says no, but if he ever said yes, I imagine it would go something like this. Kudos to Bobby for putting himself in the hot seat!

The rest of Saturday was spent like this. Lazing around and moving as little as possible.

Tomorrow begins the final week of the 2017 Tone It Up Bikini Series. I know I gush about TIU all the time (#TIUgirlproblems), but this is the first challenge that I’ve stuck with start to finish! I’m a little bit sad to see it go, but excited for what’s to come. I’ve already started researching what I want to do next. I begin half marathon training the first week of July, so I want to get something nailed down soon!

Teacher Off Duty: Casual Summer Fashion

Casual Summer Fashion

Dressing “like a teacher” has pretty much abolished any trendy style sense I might’ve had in another life. I rely almost solely on Stitch Fix to dress me August through May. You’d think this would make me more fashionable and adventurous, but… No. When school is not in session, I’m all about casual summer fashion! I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, so my summer uniform fits that bill (when it’s not athleisure, of course!).

It is gosh darned HOT in Texas, so many days, my jeans and a t-shirt becomes shorts and a t-shirt, or even jeans and a tank top. I’m usually ready to “dress up” again by the time mid August rolls around, but I love the months of June and July for allowing me to make comfort king!

Casual Summer Fashion

Necklace (similar) // Tee // Shorts // Crossbody // Sandals

I usually throw on a pair of strappy sandals or classic sneakers and then finish the look with a small cross body bag, especially if I’m traveling. There’s nothing more annoying than lugging around a giant purse all summer! My philosophy is the lighter the better when the high is slated at 100 for the day. In fact, that’s exactly what the high is today, so you can bet this is exactly what I’m wearing with a messy bun piled high on the top of my head. 😉

June! I can’t believe it’s June! I’m still clearing out shows on my DVR from late April, so the fact that it really is June just blows my mind. With a new month comes new goals and a reflection of the goals set for the previous month. Let’s get to it!

The only week of the month I didn’t run twice was last week. I’m not really sure how I managed that, but I’m darn proud!

ButcherBox Review

I remember when subscription boxes first hit. Each month I looked forward to my delivery of sample sized beauty goodies. I would stalk the tracking number each day until my box arrived and then I’d dig in giddy. As time went on, subscription boxes of all kinds started popping up — beauty, apparel, paper goods, even food! I recently became aware of a subscription service offering the highest quality Grass-fed Beef, Free Range Chicken, and Heritage Breed Pork and I find myself once again stalking the postman and being absolutely giddy when my ButcherBox arrives.
