have you ever felt so overwhelmed by the amount of things you needed to accomplish that when you’d sit down your brain would say “isn’t there something you should be doing right now?”.

that’s me.

full-time job + part-time weekend job + blogging + wedding planning + life. oh, and trying to get 8 hours of sleep.

thankfully I have an amazing fiancé, while I was on a coffee date with some local midwest bloggers this weekend, he was working on our wedding invitations, calling necessary vendors, and checking our guest list twice. he’s a saint.

busy is a good thing, don’t get me wrong. it’s just when you get too busy, you don’t have time to stop + smell the roses. to actually enjoy your life.

[*editor’s note: I am still smelling the roses. or at least waiting for may to bring them].

happy tuesday.

hello april.

workout essentials.

the moment a girl gets engaged, she receives the best motivation to get her butt into shape or so I think.

and when [J] & I decided to have a destination wedding [on a beach], that motivation doubled tripled.

I have 8 months to look & feel better than I have ever before. for myself. my wedding dress. and my bikini.

set yourself up for success.

if we worked out together, you’d see me rocking these 10 items ..

workout essentials // LLinaBC.com

1 // 1/4 zip fleece jacket.

2 // athletic tank.

3 // athletic leggings.

4 // bright socks.

5 // reversible sports bra.

6 // jawbone UP fitness tracker.

7 // water bottle.

8 // running shoes.

9 // iPod shuffle. because I must have a good beat to work out. absolute must.

10 // a fashionable bag to carry your gear to the gym.

what motivates you to get your daily workout in?

being healthy for my wedding means much more than just slimming down. it’s also about managing stress, maintaining healthy eating habits, allowing myself occasional indulgences [in moderation], and remaining positive & happy.

let the journey begin …

happy wednesday!

I apologize for today’s radio silence. I’ve been swamped, playing catch-up after all of yesterday’s fun. so many fun & exciting projects in the works, and on the horizon.

quick mention: the go blog social early bird ticket price has been extended, until february 15th. attending conferences, like this, are so beneficial. you meet so many people. learn so much. and go home ready to take on the world. I’d love to know if you plan on attending.

happy monday!
