Oh happy DAY, it’s FriYAY! 💃🏻 I’ve been SO enjoying being off the grid this week with another social media vacay. The time spent with my husband and pup and just relaxing has been amazing 🙌🏻 I’ve been making plans for the end of this year to help get myself in a better schedule now that I’m getting the hang of this new job thing. In fact, one of those things includes YOU, so keep an eye out for that announcement 👀
Thank you all for being patient during this transition season. I know I haven’t been sharing and inspiring as much as normal, but I’m here 🙋🏼♀️ I hope you all are having a fab Friday! Are you up to anything fun this weekend?
Happy #Frenchtoastfriday! Ok made that one up, but I have been wanting to make this #tiuapproved French toast for a while! That Triple Power Flex workout was amazing this am and I am so glad I got to do it this time around. Last time it was on the schedule, I was out in the woods somewhere😂. Thanks @studiotoneitupchyna (I’m getting so much better at burpees thanks to you!) and @studiotoneitupstefanie for a fun way to end the week. 😘
PS the pears are from our tree and I added a little @califiafarms pumpkin spice Better half creamer to the batter for a delicious fall treat🍁

In keeping with posting cat pictures: here’s how Nymeria likes to sleep on the couch. She spreads further and further out until she slides head first off the couch onto the floor 😂
This morning’s workout was pretty heavily modified because I’m 80% sure my uterus is trying to kill me. BUT, I got some movement in and that’s what counts, right? 😬

Is it Friday yet. My daughter’s school was in lockdown for over an hr. Lockdown is no joke, my daughter were under the table with most of her classmate for over an hr without making any noises. Teacher standing by them, praying everything is fine. I dislike getting text from school about lockdown, I grab my purse n left the house knowing my other two kids are crying so hard for my leaves 😭😭😭 in my head in that moment was well two down better than all of us down so I must leave the other two home. FYI my mom in law was home with them 🤗 glad everything is fine! #tiumom#tiuseattle#toneitup
FIGHTIN’ (to be) FIT! 👊💪 I haven’t done a check in a long, long minute not because I haven’t been working out (because I have!) but because I am SO. TIRED. And engaging, even digitally, can be really tiring.
And I’ve been so engaged. Engaged at work (3 months now!), engaged in real social situations, engaged in family stuff. So engaged, I actually got engaged! #💍#sweatingforthewedding Josh put a ring on it in July and we set the date for April 25th, so things got busy in a hurry.
And let me say my piece about getting in “wedding shape” - it’s as nonexistent as the “bikini body.” You’re already in one. But the planning process, especially when you’ve taken it upon yourself to be very DIY about it, is hard. And exhausting. And also fun. And frustrating. And you feel like you have to be magic to make the magic. But I couldn’t be happier, and I want to focus on training again (running? Weight lifting? Dance? Haven’t decided yet 😆) so that I don’t get lost in the #BigBridal propaganda.
So ready for this challenge! I’m ready to kick into another gear and hit my goals by the end of this one! 🙌🏻 Who’s with me?! I know you are, @deeanna_tiuseattle - Lets do this! 😘👊🏻 Anyone else need an accountability partner for this one?! I’m in!
A clean-out-the-fridge M5 for dinner tonight:
•Healthy baked fish sticks coated in almond flour, coconut flakes, egg, and spices 🐟 •sweet potato fries 🥔 •homemade tartar sauce with Greek yogurt, capers, pickles, mustard, onion,spices, and lemon 🍋
•veggie salad with hemp seeds 🥗
Nothing glamorous, but good eating! Sometimes you need fast and easy comfort food and to simultaneously use up the odds and ends you have in the fridge. 🤷♀️ 👊🏼
No workout today, but a very productive work day and a good catchup phone call with one of my besties. #selfcare is part of a healthy life too! 😜📞👯♀️ sometimes you just need to chat with your #tiubabe / #tiubestie !! ❤️

Made myself this huge, delicious salad for lunch! It was oh-so-tasty! 😛
John and I got up this morning, went to the gym for about an hour, then came home and watched Buffy and Angel until he had to leave for work. After he left, I did a TIU toning workout and am currently lying on my couch being blissfully lazy, watching Charmed 😊
I signed up for the 31 day challenge, and I always say I'm going to participate and finish it, but I've only ever finished one challenge and that was back at the beginning of 2016. So, I want to complete the challenge, but I don't like doing the daily moves (they bore me), and I have no intention of getting the TIU app (honestly, multiple reasons) so I will be following a very, very loose version of the challenge and incorporating my own and past tiu workouts. That will be my participation in the challenge and I'm excited about it! I always beat myself up if I deviate at all from a meal plan, the weekly schedule, etc. so I think it'll honestly feel so nice to have less structure. 😇💖 M1: overnight oats + coffee w/ creamer
M2: coconut yogurt w/ raspberries & shredded coconut + coffee w/ creamer
M3: kale, apple, feta, (gardein) chicken
M4: celery w/ peanut butter
M5: mexican plate
AMWO: 30 min elliptical + 16 min stationary bike
PMWO: inner & outer thighs

I’m so in! My life is currently turned upside down right now, I’m living out of bags ... things will hopefully calm down by October 1st, but I’ll just do the best I can do with what I’ve got and where I’m at. So excited! 💓#tiuteam#tiufallchallenge @toneitup #tiuseattle#tiu31
