  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup egg whites

Favorite thing to look at on Pinterest: Desks

I really want a desk space of my own that is dedicated to blogging. I think what matters to me more than the desk itself is the feeling that the setup creates. I really want some artwork, inspiration boards, lots of pen options, and flowers/plants surrounding the space. 

Favorite muscle to work: Shoulders

For whatever reason, I have been working especially hard on shoulders lately. I've seen more weight increases here than anywhere else lately. 

Favorite Morton pic


This is an old photo taken in our apartment in Houston that I just relocated on my phone this week. I mean, seriously... look at that face. What a handsome pup, am I right?

Favorite NYC Show: Per Party of Six


Some of my best friends in the city have a band called Per Party of Six. We went to their EP release show last night, and it was so incredibly fun. You know how you can like theoretically know that a good friend of yours is talented, but then when you see them in action, you're like holy crap -- they're really good? 

That was my experience last night. I was so impressed with my friends Per, Rachel, Glen, and Tom. Their song writing skills, showmanship, talent, and ability to connect with the crowd made this one of the most fun shows that I've ever been to. 

Anyways, you should check out their new EP: There's Something Wrong With Us

Favorite SSE post this week: The Christy

So. Many. Burpees. I did this workout on Tuesday and it was so hard. It is doable, but I promise it won't hurt my feelings if you lower the quantity of burpees to 10 or 15. 

Favorite non-SSE post this week: Key Lime Cheesecake Protein Smoothie by PB Fingers

I love lemon/lime desserts. They're so light and refreshing. I saw this post on one of my favorite bloggers' page -- PB Fingers. She created a recipe for a key lime pie protein smoothie. Yum! I must try this. 

Favorite Funny YouTube Video: Ketchup Bot

It's a little embarrassing how much joy and laughter I get out of watching this video. Man.. It makes me laugh so hard!! And honestly, the more times I watch it, the funnier it gets. The combo of malfunctioning ketchup dispensing robots and terribly out of tune saxophone gets me every time. Brilliant.
