Minnesota Booty Shake

Minnesota. Boom.

I’m here and lovin’ it.  I hopped onto a plane on the 3rd and arrived to humidity, my parents hugs, and a bright pink room that I so happily painted when I was the age of nineteen.

I swear there is nothing more comforting then the house you grew up in.  I like morning coffee talks with my Dad and being able to reconnect with old friends at the gym up the street.  This is bliss for me and I am so happy to be here until the 14th.

July is here.  I like the simplicity of light dresses, flip flops, and beach hair.



Crisp white wine

Beach sand

Lake sand


I have deactivated my Facebook for a few months and decided to set 2 goals a month instead of 3.  This is more do-able.  This is far more realistic.

Bolded is what I got to in June:



  • Yoga 1x week
  • new morning routine of breakfast at 5 with book and journal
  • swim laps at Equinox 1x week


  • 2 lunch dates with people I said I would, but haven’t
  • Be more realistic with my time, I cannot continue to be the “yes” girl
  • PR on half marathon

Below is “whatsup” in July


  • Revamp Linkedin Profile
  • Create excel doc of Masters Programs in Public Health- Fall 2014


  • Yoga 2x week, weight train 4x week, hardcore cardio 1x week (booty and thighs baby)
  • Surf, paddleboard, body board with Joy


  • Continue to be more realistic with my time (no, I cannot be in 2 places at once and over-extending myself is no bueno)
  • Find a good church in da bay

What are you up to in July? Need a break from Facebook? Craving a little simplicity? Change it up and get it on.  On this note, I leave you with a quote from a dance instructor at Lifetime Fitness “Life is too short without a little booty shake!” so shake it up baby.  Happy 4th of July!

  1. You’re in Minnie?! Would LOVE to see you, girl! I’m around so let’s get some coffee on the calendar 🙂

    Fantastic goals! I’m working on being more realistic with my time, too… it’s tough, but makes life so much simpler.
