A Bit of Sunday Randomness

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’ve had a good weekend :). This post is going to be totally random. I apologize but, you can’t say I didn’t warn you!

Friday night was nice and relaxing, which was absolutely perfect since this upcoming week is my finals week! My friends Kelly, Alicia, and I went out to dinner at the Mexican restaurant Margaritas. It was delicious! And we had some fabulous margaritas (I mean, you have to get margs at a restaurant called Margaritas right??)…and the glasses were rimmed with flavored sugar. Yes, not the healthiest thing at all, but delicious nonetheless and totally worth the splurge!

Me, Kelly, and Alicia

Tasty margarita!

And then we came back and watched the movie Friends With Benefits. It was my second time seeing it and I enjoyed it this time just as much as the first! Such a nice night, hanging out with some of my girls, relaxing, and enjoying each other’s company!

Yesterday morning I had a great workout at the gym. I completed 30 minutes of lower body strength training and then followed it with 20 minutes of intervals on the treadmill. During the strength training I attempted to do one-legged burpees. Haha that was a sight. I couldn’t really do it. Granted, I think I actually CAN do them, but I tried them at the end of my strength training and my legs felt so fatigued that I could barely jump! This week I am determined to do them!

(Sidenote: I highly suggest you try out this 25-minute Bodyweight Workout from Scott. This workout has 5 sets and is done as 5 tabatas. It was awesome and totally kicked my butt when I did it last week!)

In the afternoon I got started on stuff for my finals. And by that I mean I sort of looked at the material and then got distracted by all of the Christmas movies on TV hehe :). Oh well, my finals aren’t until Thursday and Friday so I can take this weekend easy (at least that’s what I’m telling myself).

And I may have found a trailer for a movie that I absolutely cannot wait to see! I am a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks books and one of my favorites is called The Lucky One. Well, the movie of it is coming out in April and the trailer was just released. Seriously, watch it and tell me that you don’t want to eat Zac Efron right up ;).

A few things I am absolutely LOVING this week are my Twisted Peppermint candle from Bath and Body Works, Zoey snuggling on my lap, and an Audrey Hepburn quote that I found!



Hope you have a great day!

    Once I had to do one legged burpees on a Bodyrock workout and they whooped my bootay! I love burpees though– so effective! Side-to-side are another way I love them too.

    By the way, love the margarita lovin’ πŸ˜€

  15. One-legged burpees? Yowza. I find regular burpees kind of awkward, so I am going to assume I would suck at those as well. I am off to the gym right now, I’ve been putting it off all morning!
