Link Love: SPRING CLEANING

[Enter to win your very own standing desk HERE!]

It’s been a while since my last Link Love post so I have TONS of good stuff to share today. But before I get into that I just wanted to thank you all for the extra love these past few days. They’ve been….rough, to say the least. Basically, some decisions were made that were out of my control and I am reeling from that. I feel like I’ve been dealt a big blow to my motivation and drive to get healthy. I’m feeling pretty hopeless and defeated.

Link Love: February 2015

[Have you entered my Swanson Vitamins giveaway yet? $50 dollars to their online store up for grabs!]

Happy Friday, friends! I wanted to give you all a little update and also make a request.

If you follow me on Instagram you may already know, but right now I am dealing with a weird injury. It’s only been diagnosed as inflammation under the kneecap but it’s causing me a lot of pain and fully restricting me from my normal exercise. For the next week I can’t do any lower body exercise whatsoever until I see my doctor again on Wednesday. It’s really frustrating and I know it’s probably my own fault from jumping back into running so quickly, but I really had no guidance or direction as to how much I should have been doing. I was cleared, felt good, and just so ready to get back into the things I love. But that was an error on my part and now I’m paying for it. So for the next little bit I’ll only be doing upper body and core stuff. If you have any fun workouts, send them my way! I need all the inspiration I can get. Thank you to everyone who has sent me well wishes so far. I can’t wait to remember what’s it’s like to not be in pain and just be able to walk normally.

Four Ways to Unwind at Night

Welcome to a new week, friends! I thought it would be nice to start this final week of February (WHAT?!) with a little reeeelaxaaaation chat. Lord knows the week gets busy pretty quick! So it might be good to mindfully set some goals for letting ourselves unwind after a hectic day.

But before I get into that…I wanted to mention the blogging streak I had the last week! I blogged SIX DAYS in a row. Now I know that’s small beans to any of the big bloggers out there that post everyday or multiple times a day, but for me it felt pretty cool. And I am proud of the content I shared with you all. In case you’re catching up, here’s what went down…
