barre fit.

Lately I've really been trying to focus on my health.

Now that I'm working full time, it's been easier to get into a workout routine, and I've really been enjoying barre classes.

The first time I went, it was probably the hardest thing I had ever done. Afterwards I was sore for a week and could barely walk up and down my stairs.

Now, I'm obsessed with the workout! It's still very difficult, but it makes me feel strong and in shape. And I'm seeing amazing results.

It's definitely my kind of workout too - it's fun and challenging, but not too intense that I feel like I'm going to pass out.

Have you all ever tried a barre class? If not, I highly recommend you give it a shot!

living your dreams.

I recently made this quote the background on my phone.

Sometimes I feel like I still have no idea what I want to do with my life. It's not that I have no idea what I want to do; the problem is that I have too many things I want do to.
I want to be a chef, a graphic designer, a writer, a nutritionist, and so much more..

It can be a overwhelming to have so many ways my life could go and no clear direction about what is the right path and how to get there.

This quote reminds me that the most important thing is to start somewhere, anywhere. I can't wait around for a day when  I know exactly what I want to do and how to do it. Instead I need to work to pursue my dreams every single day, and see where life takes me.

Now, how's that for a little motivation to get your through your hump day?

happy October.

It's officially my favorite month of the whole year: October.

It's finally starting to feel like fall in Chicago, and I'm so ready to snuggle up in leggings, boots and comfy sweaters and enjoy the beautiful weather.

I hope you all are having a wonderful October 1st!
