Holy cow--how is it already July?!? Wasn't it just a few weeks ago that I was heading off to Florida in APRIL? Time flies when you're having fun, right? Or something like that...

In honor of the first and because I have about 0 minutes before I need to get ready for my power hour workout, I thought I'd catch you up on life.

Current book: ACSM's Resources for the Personal Trainer. I just got this book in the other day and plan on spending a LOT of quality time with it on vacation this week! I know I picked the right profession when I'm reading a text book for pleasure. ha. I plan on taking the ACSM personal training cert sometime in August so... time to get cracking, right?

Current music: I have been listening to Spotify's "Songs to sing in the car" playlist every morning getting ready for the last week and LOVE IT. I won't lie, I totally rocked out to "Get Ur Freak On" by Missy Elliot this morning at 5:45am.

Current [non]-guilty pleasure: Taking some time off from my "clean" eating. It was to the point where it was completely taking control of my life and dictating my free time/schedule/etc. Don't get me wrong, I haven't completely gone off the deep end (yet) but I'm thoroughly enjoying having an occasional cookie or brownie on a regular basis... :)

Current nail color: Confession--I've never painted my nails. Like, ever.

Current drink: Still diet moutnain dew. One day I'll break the habit. It's not today though. I also brought back my college favorite whiskey sour last week. DELICIOUS.

Current food: Artic Zero Cookie Shake Ice Cream + Chickpea Cookie dough Dip + a few chocolate graham crackers pieces + Walden Farms 0 calorie Chocolate syrup..... OMG.. seriously, you HAVE to try it!

Current obsession: See above. Ha. And PB2.

Current wish: To be at the beach already! I'm reading to go on my long beach runs, get tan, RELAX, and have fun for a week!

Current need: To clean my house. OMG. Absolutely ridiculous. And to pack. Ahh.

Current bane of my existence: This day at work. I love my job but.. the day before vacation is ALWAYS tough.

Current indulgence: All things chocolate. And catching up on The Next Food Network Star. Love that show!

Current procrastination: Packing. A few things I've got to get done at work before leaving for a week.

Current confession: I had ice cream for dinner last night. No shame.

Current blessing: Figuring life out with my husband. Marriage isn't always easy but planning for the future has been seriously fun lately. I feel like we're making decisions that will ultimately help us in the long run... which is always a good thing.

Current excitement: HILTON HEAD! TOMORROW!

Current mood: Excited. Nervous. Scared. Happy. All of the above?

Current link: The Spartan Workout Logs. I've been enjoying going through some of these workouts lately! Today's looks like a real doozy. And Instagram. Always.

Have a great Wednesday!
