New Life Starts Tomorrow

Sunday, September 7, 2014

We're only two weeks into football season and it's already taking a toll on me. There's just something about football Saturdays that makes me feel like I'm twenty-one again. And that's not a good thing. My activities may have gotten a little out of hand on Saturday and I'm still feeling the heat of it today. Too many Bloody Marys were drank and too many plates of nachos were eaten. 

So rather than just complain about feeling gross on Monday like I always do, I'm going to get a little crazy and actually do something about it. I can't believe I'm saying this, but tomorrow morning at 5:45 a.m. I'm going to a hot yoga class. I've already signed up and if I don't show I'll get charged $20. I'm too damn cheap to just eat $20 so you better believe I'll be there.  I'm actually trying out this new thing in Chicago called Class Pass where I can go to almost any fitness class at some of the best fitness studios in Chicago. My goal is to do yoga, pilates and barre at least four days a week (doesn't that just sound fancy?) I've honestly never been this excited to workout before, it's kinda strange. Ask me how excited I am tomorrow at 5:15 a.m.  Or even after my first class...

And now here's a photo spill from the past few days. 


Drinking in overalls. Not as fun as one might think.


Chris is so cute in his Herbie gear.


The nachos...


One of the many bloodys consumed over the weekend.


I ordered Lox but got this. It was pretty good but I won't lie, I like a fat bagel with my salmon and capers.


Just taking a Sunday stroll in their Bears jerseys.


And pretty much all of Sunday was spent on the couch watching football. It was pretty great.

Know what else I think is great? My new phone cover from Casetify I just got on Friday. I'm a sucker for new phone covers (especially covers that have photos of Harlow and Chris on them) so I've been using Casetify to make my own since I discovered this great company more than a year ago.


Casetify has been super gracious and is actually letting me give away a custom cover to one lucky winner. So just enter below if you'd like the chance to have your own! And now I'm going to start mentally preparing for that 5:45 a.m. yoga class... Let's do it, Monday.

  5. oh god Footy and Nachos - they sound so good at the time, but do not feel so good about 10 minutes after.
    I really want to try some hot yoga - I need to spice up my workout routine for sure - but I'm way to inflexible and unco-ordinated to actually go to class. The Struggle!
    I hope you find a way to enjoy Football Saturdays without enduring Feel Like Shit Mondays :)

  12. drinking in overalls is overrated but I can't stop wearing them.

  13. I went out one night in a romper to a bar and found it was really so much more difficult than I wanted it to be. Lesson learned! Also, hot yoga sounds fun…though 5:45am does not. Good luck!

  14. Wow that's one early class, but the $20 policy is a good one, that way you'll actually do it. I definitely need that kind of encouragement at that hour. Looks like a fun weekend. I love that Harlow likes getting dressed up, so cute.

  20. I don't know what I would put on my cover. Maybe a favorite quote and some pictures of my nephew. Or my LA Angels...Yeah, probably baseball pics.

  21. Love that case, so cute! I would put pics of hubs and pups, and maybe a pretty picture of flowers or something.

    I've heard of hot yoga and it sounds intriguing but I'm scared to try it!

  22. I love that case! Just the other day I was saying I couldn't decide between a St. Louis Cardinals or Mizzou cover and then thought I should make one with a pic of my little family. I could do all three with this!

  23. You're making me crave a Bloody Mary.
    I'd put some pictures of my best friends and me; maybe some of my cats, too. I swear I'm not a crazy cat lady.

  24. I would put tons of photos of me in Denver gear! It's Denver's year this year! That sounds like such a cool way to get active!

  25. I love all of your Chicago posts! I'm also based out of Chicago and would definitely plaster my phone with pics of my hubby!

  26. Hot yoga is something to get used to for sure. I tried it once and need to psych myself up for it again. :/ Glad you had a good time drinkin' in Lincoln (hard not to) and thanks for sharing the pics! GBR!

  27. These cases are so much fun. I would probably put a picture up from my wedding last year (dancing of course), a picture of my family, a picture of my best friends, and then probably a picture of my alma mater's football field (you know, just to remind my hubby that we're a house divided, but my team is better!)

  28. I think I would put pictures of my cousin. She has Down Syndrome and is so adorable she always makes me smile

  29. I would love to put pictures from mine and my partner's commitment ceremony on a new case. And pictures of our two fur-babies, of course!

  30. Hope you enjoyed hot yoga! It took me 4 classes before I could make it through without feeling like I was going to pass out.
