Hi!

Welcome to my blog where I give you a peek into how I live my healthy, happy life!

 

Mondays are Fine.

Happy Monday!! Loved this Instagram post by LiveSore today. So true, right?! I feel like when people have nothing to really talk about, they resort to just complaining... Not over here!!

This morning's WOD was a sneaky one! It sounded pretty simple, but those ring rows!!! Ew! The third and fourth rounds were tough with those, but the push presses were no problem. It was just like my arms would not pull me up in some of those ring rows! I liked it though, and it put these arms {and the rest of my body} to serious work.

This afternoon, I came home to find more evidence of Ruby finding the coziest spot possible...

And I finally found the top coat to the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish! All the stores I have been to look like their displays of this stuff have been raided and trashed. After the 4th CVS stop, I found some. I really just wanted red, but the top coat came with "Pretty Piggy" pink, which I liked too, so I got that plus the "Red Eye" polish.

I just put it on a little while ago, and I am pretty amazed. Two coats of the color, one of the top coat, and then I sat near my lamp {figured some light would maybe be good?} In less than 10 minutes, my nails were totally dry, which was  crazy to me. One of the things I love most about gel manicures is how they dry instantly and you can get on with your life- so this is pretty close, while saving me $70+ a month!

The other thing I love about gel manicures is the durability. My hands are constantly on the barbell, kettle bells, in between weights, etc etc, so I need my polish not to chip because I just don't have time for that!! I will let you know how this holds up throughout the week {and hopefully next week} I also painted my toes with it, so I am excited to not have those chip either! The polish is definitely nice and smooth and super shiny, which I also love about normal gel manicures. We shall see, I hope I am a convert to the DIY gel mani, except for extra special occasions and when I feel like being pampered, of course ;)

Have a great night <3
