Weekend Memo

This is my motto this weekend – do not disturb. With moving-related to-do lists taking up my life, I seriously need to unwind this holiday weekend. Beginning with a sailing trip and followed by days at the beach of pure nothing. Doesn’t that sound glorious? The 30-day countdown has begun before our move. I can’t believe in less than four weeks we will be living out of a suitcase until we find that perfect home in Miami. Happy Memorial Day weekend!

The “Anywhere” Workout With A 30-Day Squat Challenge

I’ve talked to you about my goals to get in better shape and there’s no better motivation than getting my body ready for bikini season. And I have to say, moving to Miami is also a great motivator for me – embarrassing so. The hard part is fitting in a workout and working out from home isn’t always for me. But I have to do something. And better-for-you snacks do help, but when combined with exercise it’s even better. And that’s when I remembered pinning this anywhere workout and this 30-day squat challenge. Since our Miami trip is only about a month from now, I need to get with it. So I decided to combine the two workouts and hopefully I’ll see some good results by day 30. Wish me luck! I’m starting now.

I wanted to share this concept with you because I know I’m not alone when it comes to being out of shape. So maybe I’ll motivate you to join me on this challenge. If you give it a go, let me know in the comments section below.

I’m also going to start using the UP MOVE with the UP App featuring Smart Coach, to help me stay motivated to finish this challenge. I’ll be keeping you apprised as to how the UP MOVE works and also share an honest review about this accessory.

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this challenge!

P.S. Don’t forget to incorporate some stretching exercises. Your body will need it!

Summer Goals: Let’s Go Sailing


“I can’t control the wind, but I can adjust the sail.” – Ricky Skaggs

With summer right around the corner, I’m looking forward to getting out on the water. On my bucket list this season, is to go sailing. I’ve never been, but doesn’t it sound amazing? The idea of setting sail into the ocean and being surrounded by nothing other than water sounds so relaxing and refreshing. I’m also excited for all the new adventures that are about to start in just a few short weeks – with our move to Miami. One thing is for sure, we will definitely go sailing in Miami.

And of course, I have already been planning what I would wear. It seems appropriate to wear some sailor stripes and a big straw hat. And of course when the time comes that I do go sailing, I’ll be sharing some photos of that adventure. But for now, the photos above are my inspiration.

We’ve been floating the idea of getting out sailing for this Memorial Day weekend or take another trip to the beach. If we go sailing, it would be a great farewell to the area. But if we head towards the beach, I’m going to try and go paddle boarding, which is on my bucket list too. Whatever the case, I’ll be sharing some snaps.
