March Goals

I know I didn't show up to do February Goals but I'm back in action for March.  I am finding myself super motivated right now so I'm hoping that lasts through the month and I can knock these goals out!

March Goals
1. Workout 5-6 times a week
I'm really hoping it's 6 times a week but I'm leaving myself that wiggle room just in case.

2. Procrastinate less
I have gotten into a really bad habit of not paying a bill til the day it's due or leaving laundry to sit until the last minute.  I would really like to break this habit this month.

3. Try 4 new workouts 
I have 2 new ones scheduled this week so fingers crossed I hit this one early.

4. Stay on top of my workload
Now that I've been through my first bi-monthly program, I think I know better what I need to prepare a head of time so I'm not scrambling at the end of the month to get stuff done.

5. Get decorations hung on my walls
I still have not hung 1 stinking thing on my walls and it is killing me.  This month I vow to get frames and artwork hung and photographed so yall can finally see some of my bachelorette pad!

Now I want to hear from you guys!  What are yalls goals for this month?

Weekending: Stars Game, Girls Night Out, and a Recipe!

Is it just me or was this Monday harder than others to wake up?  I think with last week being so off because of the ice storms in Dallas, my brain and body are confused!

This weekend was a fun one to say the least!  Back in December I gave my Dad tickets to the Stars game for Christmas.  He has seen every other major league sport and really wanted to go to a hockey game.  He flew in Friday night and we had a blast even though the Stars lost in the shootout.

However it would have been more fun if my favorite hockey player had been on the ice!

Saturday after Dad headed back home I got ready and met a few of the girls our for dinner and drinks.  We had a great time despite being served a $14 drink that I didn't order and running into a few incredibly rude Dallas douchebags.  I seriously have to just shake my head at some people!  We may have stayed out a little too late and ordered a little too much at Whataburger.

Someone please explain to me why I have TONS of eyemakeup on in that last pic and you can't even tell!  I need a makeover fairy godmother for sure (how fun would that be?)

Sunday was spent grocery shopping and making this amazing recipe that Biana post about last week.  So delicious and easy to throw together!

This week is going to be insane between working a ton at Pure Barre and trying to take full advantage of my ClassPass.  It's time to get serious about Operation Bikini Body!

I hope yall have a fabulous week and stay warm.  These darn freezing temperatures can go back to the North where they came from!

Linking up with Biana!

The Ride House

Have you ever been to an event and left knowing that you just found something special?  Something that made not only your heart happy but your soul happy?

This happened to me Tuesday night when I was lucky enough to attend a ClassPass event at The Ride House.  The Ride House opened about a week ago and this place has already generated a huge amount of buzz!  I was super nervous as I clipped in to my bike because #1 I had never clipped into a bike before and #2 the only class on a bike I've ever done is a Les Mills RPM class.

As soon as the music started though, I knew I'd be ok.  A hot sweaty mess, but ok.  Our instructor Jasmine was not only beautiful but so engaging and really got the whole class (or Tribe as they call it) excited and motivated for the next 45 minutes.  The playlist was awesome and I'm pretty sure I sang along with every song including the newest Ellie Goulding which literally made my heart so happy to hear!

The class included push-ups, tap backs and weight work all of which I'd never done in RPM.  The 45 minutes were really centered around riding to the beat of the music which was right up my alley.  By the time it was over I knew I'd be back for more next week!

After class we got to enjoy juices from Tribal, shopping from Lululemon and other goodies!  I also got to connect with the fabulous Mai Lyn!  If you haven't checked out her amazing blog go read it now!

I can't wait to get back for another ride!

Class Pass 2-for-1

In December I was asked to be an ambassador for ClassPass during their Dallas launch.  I got the opportunity to try out some great fitness studios and really started learning what I wanted out of a workout.  This month Meghan and Fiona from ClassPass have been in town hosting some awesome events and free classes around town and I was lucky enough to attend 1 event at Beyond500 and 1 event at The Ride House.  I was also lucky enough to go to dinner with these 2 amazing ladies and was asked to be an ClassPass ambassador once again!  I will be spending the month of March trying out new workouts and studios and reporting back to all of you about what I've found.

For those of you that don't live in Dallas, don't worry, I still have something great for yall!  For a short time ClassPass is offering an amazing 2-for-1 deal: 2 months of unlimited classes for just $79! That's 2 months of barre, pilates, cardio, weigh -training, spin, etc! Swimsuit season is right around the corner so what better time to take advantage of such an awesome offer!  Sign up here!

Side note, see that cute blonde in the picture above?  That is my sorority sister Amanda!  Small world huh?!

If you live in DFW and sign up, let me know!  We can try some classes together and #livethesweatylife!  Also check back tomorrow for my review of The Ride House class!
