You guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuys.

I'm writing yet another post on a whim - I really need to get these done the night before, but I have had a ton going on. I live on the edge, hey hey.

I love blogs because they can be anything you want. You can post about your day/food/fitness like I normally do, but also feel comfortable enough to write about difficult times. I'm still a little down every so often, but I feel much better than a couple of days ago.

This verse has helped me a lot!

Marvelous is....stress runs.

Ahhh, stress runs. I just needed to get everything off of my mind, so I headed out for a run. It. Was. Awesome. I ran Garmin-less, but I know the perimeter of my neighborhood, and I got about 5 - 5.5 fan-freaking-tastic miles. I felt so much better at the end. Running rules!

Marvelous is....MY HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, I did it. I really cannot believe I actually did it. It's so freaking adorable, I can't even handle it, and soooo easy to do. They say when a lady cuts her hair, her life is about to change (or maybe I just made that up, idk), and PEOPLE. It changed.

I feel so girly and chic and just..confident. GAH. For now, I can just blow-dry it, but I can't wait to experiment with different styles.

Marvelous is....treadmill workouts.

Well that's something I never thought I'd say. Last summer, I practically swore off treadmills forever and ever. But with this crappy winter weather, I've had to be flexible. Having an interval workout makes the time fly, and I also bring my little brother with me!!! Workout buddy, booyah!


Yup, yoga is going marvelously. :) I absolutely love it! The videos are teaching me SO much! Mainly that a lot of exercises/poses I was doing previously, I was doing wrong. It's been teaching me where you tend to hold your stress, such as in an ab pose where you might be stressing your lower back or neck, rather than engaging your tummy muscles.

That's all I got for ya - I hope you have a wonderful evening! :))


  1. Jessica you are BEAUTIFUL!! You own that haircut. Seriously, I'm in love with it. You look so cute! Yoga is pretty marvelous. I liked today's. Yesterday's wasn't my favorite though. Today I had a stress run. The weather was warm (36!!) and I wasn't trying to set any pace. Stress runs=miracles.

    1. Thank you so much, Emily!! :)) I'm in love with it too! Today's (well, yesterday's now that I'm replying, haha) was really nice. It wasn't too hard! I can't believe that 36 was warm for you. And stress runs are miracles! Not stressing about pace makes the time really fly. Have a great day!

  2. HOLY CRAP you look AMAZING!!! That pixie cut is absolutely perfect for you. Seriously. I dig it.
    Hooray for runs and yoga! And spontaneous posts. Those really are the best :)

    1. Thank you!!!!!! I LOVE it!!! And I agree, spontaneous posts are usually more fun - and provide me motivation to get them written quicker rather than spending an hour thinking about what to say! :)) Have an awesome day!!

  3. I am in love with the hair cut!!! Although I would never be able to do it myself! I'm so glad you're feeling better! I'm loving yoga too. I'm learning so much! The time just flies by!

    1. Thanks girl!! I'm sure you'd look cute with any hair style, but I do love your long hair. :) I know, I usually can't believe when I'm done with a video! Have a wonderful day!
