Happy Thursday, my fit & focused friends. Before we get into today’s finds, I just need to take a moment to rant. After my short voluntary break from working out in May, all I’ve wanted is to get back to my workout routine. Right when I was ready to get back to it, I had a procedure and the doc told me no working out for a week. Then I came down with a weird infection in my lower leg – no working out for another week. I was finally feeling up for getting my fitness back. I ran a 10k (which I hadn’t been able to train for) and the leg was good. Then… boom… I get a cold. What the heck?! All I want is to get back to my workout routine. I haven’t worked out in so long and it’s killing me. Whyyyyyyy?! Seriously. I’m really pissed off and can’t help but think that if I was working out, I wouldn’t have gotten this cold. BAH! All I can do is keep resting (boo!), drink my fluids and hope I can kick this thing SOON so I can FINALLY get back to my workouts. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Ok, I know it’s not the end of the world, but fitness is a big part of my life and I’m really missing it.
Ok, onto more fun things- FINDS!
