another month, another round of some music i’m loving at the moment! i wasn’t sure i’d even be able to do these posts monthly since when i find a good song i tend to listen to it on repeat until i can’t stand it anymore. turns out i’m still listening to all the songs i shared last month. sorrynotsorry. i did find some more great songs though this month :) hope you like ‘em!
1. Lay Me Down – Sam Smith
(okay Sam Smith in general) i know i’m a bit late to the the party, but i think after he pretty much stole the show at The Grammy’s last month everyone’s noticed how much talent this guy has. now he just needs to come to Indy sometime soon so i can see him in concert!
(insert random picture of Sweeran. click on the link for the song :) )
i came across this mashup somebody created on Tumblr and it.is.everything. please listen even if you’re not a fan of Taylor (how dare you).
3. Budapest – George Ezra
i started hearing this song all over the radio this past month, and then i saw the performance of it when i was watching the Brit Awards and fell in love with it.
4. One Last Time – Ariana Grande
to be honest, i’m not a huge Ariana Grande fan, but there’s no denying that this girl can sing. i do love this song though!
5. Earned It – The Weeknd
can’t get enough of this song. i haven’t actually seen 50 Shades of Grey but all the music from the soundtrack that i’ve heard is on point.
what’s your favorite song lately?
what’s your favorite genre of music?
and just like that i’m on spring break! where has this year gone? i swear it was just the end of summer. the school i work at only has 9 more weeks of school left. say what!?! in other news, i’m off to California this week. ahhhhh. i’ll being singing “Unwritten” all throughout my trip pretending i’m on The Hills ;)
here are last weeks workouts! nothing too exciting, except the addition of my first two runs outside since January. they were much needed and it felt so, so nice to be able to run in the sun, with a tank top on<3
Monday: 20-minute walk + lower body workout
Tuesday: barre workout
Wednesday: 5-mile run
Thursday: quick arm workout
Friday: 20-minute walk + lower body workout
Saturday: 4-mile run
Sunday: 30-minute walk outside (active recovery)
i realized i never took a total rest day which is very uncommon for me. i think the warmer weather we had made me want to be more active outside!
have a lovely week<3
last week was a week where more rest happened than actual workouts. i came down with strep throat Wednesday and didn’t want to push myself. hey, it happens. being sick really makes you appreciate your health and the ability to exercise i’ll tell ya.
3. 2. 15 – 3. 8. 15
Monday: kettlebells + 10-min bodyweight HIIT + 10-min walking
Friday: 30-minutes of easy Pilates
Saturday: cardio toning class
do you have a hard time not working out when you’re sick?
