Feelin’ Hot, Hot, Hot!

6 Jul

Good Lord – it is 95 degrees right now!

My first class this morning was at 9:00, and on my walk to the theatre, I was pretty sure that I was going to melt into a puddle. Class was awesome though. There’s this boy in it that was in another clas of mine, and I swear he looks tooootally different than just a couple weeks ago. He was saying that he needed to get back in the gym and get back some of the muscle he’d lost during the course, and he was not lying. His shirt was literally being pushed away from the rest of his body by how huge his chest was. How do guys bulk up so fast?!Before class I fueled with a nanner and a clif z bar, honey graham style –

check out those healthy lookin' nails!

So, because of the heat, my plan was to stay in air conditioned places as long as possible. I walked back home to make a quick change, then made my way to the gym. I sweated out some mileage, while listening to my new favorite podcast
It’s really great. It’s all these amazing authors reading some of their favorite short stories published in the New Yorker. (I’m a big fan of short stories!)

After that, I took a shower, grabbed a diet coke, and headed over to Barnes and Noble to do some homework…which I am putting off by writing this post 😛

Have you guys watched this new show, “Huge”? It’s really good, and really inspiring. I’m usually not a fan of these types of shows, and when I saw the commercials, I wasn’t entirely sold. But I love that the characters struggle through family and romantic relationships, and make up, and eating disorders – real life things. Plus, I love that the main character loves herself just the way she is. The message of the show is great.

Welp, I would say this was a pretty, “Get it!” day. I am hittin’ the books, I did something I love (reading, theatre) I fit in a workout despite the heat – all good things!


Be a “Get it” Girl!

5 Jul

Hello out there blogosphere! And welcome to, “Get It, Girl!”

This is one of my favorite phrases, and you say it in a sort of sing-songy fashion, “Get it, get it, girl! Get it, get it, girl!” often accompanied by a slight amount of booty shaking.

But it also encompasses the way that I’d like to live my life. Like most people out there, I’ve gone in and out of, “healthy living” however you’d like to define that, and I’ve only recently come to terms just loving myself for me and striving to be the best version of myself that I can.

Now that is no easy task! I’m a student, a daughter, a best friend, a writer, a reporter, an actress, and an all around diva. 😉 That’s a lot of different hats to wear while trying to juggle one’s health and well-being! But my goal is to make it work. I want rock hard abs! I want buns of steel! And I want to continue to be a happy healthy girl.

In order to do that, I know that I have to be a, “Get it!” girl – the kind of girl who goes after her dreams, and takes her health and happiness into her own hands. 🙂

So, welcome to my blog, but more importantly – welcome to my journey! I hope that you’ll get on board for the sure to be bumpy ride!
