Weekly Fitness Report | Feb. 22-28

According to the goals for this week that I wrote in my Fitness Report last week, I failed. My goal was to close all three rings on my Apple Watch (stand, exercise, move) all 7 days of the week. I did not accomplish this.

I did, however, close all three rings 5 out of 7 days this week, and I am refusing to kick myself over it. I am proud of the 5 days and I am proud of the fact that I listened to my mind and body this week when they told me “no can do” on the two days I didn’t get my rings closed.

Weekly Fitness Report | Feb. 15-21

If you remember my post last week, I had an incredible 7-day streak crushing my goals. At the end of the post, I said it wasn’t likely I would be able to conquer that level of exercise every week and that I wanted to close all my rings on my Apple Watch at least 3 times during the next round (which is the week I’m going to be writing about in this post.)

I am happy to say that I was successful in closing my rings 3 times this cycle! I got very close on Monday and semi-close Thursday and Friday. I was way off on Tuesday.

Weekly Fitness Report | Feb. 8-14

When I say I crushed my fitness goals this past week, it’s definitely an understatement. I destroyed them.

I knew at the beginning of the week that there were some awards on my Apple Watch that I wanted to get, so I put my mind (and body) to the test and collected every single one that I was aiming for plus one that I didn’t realize I was going to get. I’ll explain the awards in a minute, but first, here’s the exercise recap.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

What were/are your plans for Valentine’s Day?

I woke up at a decent time, did some yoga for about an hour, had cinnamon rolls for breakfast, then cleaned up the house and did some laundry. I have been in my pajamas since then and even got to take a nap today. It has been a productive yet, relaxing day.

I hope you all have a great rest of the day!

Weekly Fitness Report | Feb. 1-7

Hello everyone and happy February!

Raise your hand if you can’t believe we are already in the second month of 2021. 🙋🏻‍♀️ January flew by and I’m finding myself wondering where all the time went. But that’s life, I guess.

As promised from last week’s Fitness Report, I’m going to spend some time talking about my new exercise adventure: BeachBody!

Solving the Magic Puzzle

We did it! The magic puzzle has been solved! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you should go read at least the last part of my National Puzzle Day post.

Guys, this was truly an adventure. Boyfriend and I had so much fun piecing this one together and we’ve also never been so perplexed by a puzzle before. Even after we got down to the last 20 pieces or so, we were still confused about where to place the pieces. It was definitely a challenge.

Weekly Fitness Report | Jan. 25-31

Well this post is a little late, but better late than never! Life just got in the way this week (in part because of fitness and another from doing some unexpected overtime at work, then coming home and feeling too exhausted to write a coherent sentence.) So here I am on a Wednesday, telling you what I accomplished last week.

But let me tell you… it was MAJOR.

National Puzzle Day

Friday was National Puzzle Day, so naturally, here I am with another story from my puzzle saga.

Boyfriend and I knew National Puzzle Day was coming at the end of this month, so a couple weeks ago, we ordered a puzzle from Amazon in anticipation for the day. Last weekend, we got a little antsy and wanted to start the puzzle we bought, but decided against it since we had picked out the puzzle from Amazon specifically for National Puzzle Day.

We decided to put together a puzzle we already had, so we grabbed a Coca-Cola puzzle from our arsenal that we had previously put together about 3 or 4 years ago. Boyfriend worked on it on his own for a few hours before I jumped in on the fun. In total, it only took about 5 or 6 hours to finish. Everything went smoothly and there was little to no confusion on which pieces went where. I think it was a little easier, too since we had previously put it together.

Product Review | Small Business Edition

I had a ton of fun writing my Etsy Shop Edition product review – So much fun that I decided to do a non-Etsy, small business/retail edition!

Below you will find descriptions of the dog-friendly companies I love, what I bought from them, and why I’ll continue to support them. These shops are, I think, generally larger than the ones on Esty, but some are considered small businesses and some aren’t. I don’t know the exact company size of each of these businesses, but I don’t think they’re super huge.

I have four business I’d like to highlight for dog products and two for pup parents. Here we go!
