Thinking Out Loud ; 6/5

I’m gonna take a risk and skip an intro and go straight to the thoughts! I hope that’s okay, Amanda. 🙂




1. Man oh man have I been loving being on vacation! I have never felt so stress free in such a long time! Enjoying the days going to the gym, having more time to cook, spending more time with friends and family, swimming, watching movies.. this is the life. I’m surprised I haven’t turned into a lazy bum. I’ve actually been quite motivated and more active. No complaints here though!

2. Every night I have been having a combination of three different cereals and a tortilla with peanut butter. It sounds like a strange combo, but it is honestly really good. It fills me up and I go to bed with a happy tummy.

3. With the move, I was only able to do at home workouts, because the gym I was signed up too was too far to get too. Well, I was finally able to join and new gym, and I love it! It has some equipment I have never tried before, so trying them out is fun! Definitely makes the workouts more fun.

4. I have no doubt that I will get addicted to Netflix over vacation. Slowly but surely my days have been filled with watching movies on Netflix.

5. Every day I have been biking around 6 miles in the morning. It gives me a time to myself to just think and clear my mind. I’m happy that I am able to ride my bike again. I haven’t rode it since the accident back in January. o.o

6. Recently, I lost someone that is really close too me. I mean extremely close.. I’m still feeling it in my heart, but I just want to let you know that it is okay to cry. I have been crying lately, because I don’t want to hold back the tears. It’s not good to hold in your emotions.. Just just have to feel what you feel.

7. I have been having my craving for frozen yogurt again.. oh my. I blame the hot weather. 😉


8. I have also been craving the grilled chicken burger with avocado and sweet potato fries I mentioned yesterday.


9. I have been chugging water like it’s nobody’s business. Arizona’s heat is no joke. I even started carrying around a gallon jug. o.o

10. I really need to update my playlist for the gym. Any suggestions on some songs that could help motivate me? I’d really appreciate it!


I hope everyone has an amazing day! ❤

  1. I am sorry about your loss, and my thoughts and prayers will be with you. That probably sounds very cliche, and I am sure many people have said the same thing to you, but I hope it doesn’t sound too contrived or false. I know I tend to hold in my emotions at times in order to remain stoic and steadfast, but there almost always comes a point when I have to break down and cry in order to release my pent-up emotions. I have been doing more bike riding as well since the weather has finally gotten warm and sunny, though I doubt it is as hot here in Illinois as it is in Arizona! I have also been watching a great deal of Netflix ever since my college classes finished, mainly Buffy the Vampire Slayer–I know I am more than a decade late to that show, but I have been enjoying it so far. I am glad you are enjoying a fairly stress-free vacation so far; it can be nice to have a break from the grind of school and other less carefree activities. Since my workouts generally consist either of ballet classes or yoga classes, I am usually listening to classical or meditative/chanting music. However, I have found that many 80’s rock songs motivate me to do random abdominal workouts at home to strengthen my core, especially songs by Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Foreigner, Journey, and Aerosmith. I hope you have a wonderful day as well!

  2. That sounds like the perfect pre-bed snack! Cereal + nut butter = amazing.
    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. Trust that his/her soul is in God’s hands.
    Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay, Get My Name by Mark Ballas, and Move by Little Mix are some of my favorites for gym songs!
