FITspiration Friday: BACKS

Good morning friends!! I am SO HAPPY that it is FRIDAY and it’s absolutely GORGEOUS outside!! I am making myself some oatmeal for breakfast and then I’m going to go out on a run and soak up some sun before my brother and I head into the city tonight.  We are meeting my uncle and cousins for dinner and then going to see THE HUNGER GAMES! Can you tell by the use of my capital letters that I am PUMPED?!

Here’s my yummy breakfast:

Before I forget…go check out SHE ROCKS FITNESS for my guest post today!! Awesome lil’ circuit workout you can do anywhere 🙂

Now I’m going to get to the FIT pics!  Today I wanted to focus on BACKS!  Nothing is better than a strong, sexy back!


Now I’m off to do a run and some sort of strength exercises after…feeling inspired to work my back muscles! 🙂  Have a great day!


FITspiration Friday

And of course my favorite FITspirations…

…the TONE IT UP ladies K&K!  The Bikini Series is coming SOON so join the best team ever 🙂

You can definitely be ready for bikini season with the TIU Nutrition Plan!

Oh and also, Kate Middleton is both an athlete and a beautiful fashionista role model.  She is so classy I just love it.

Contrary to what Jessica Simpson believes, you actually CAN like both sports and shopping.  Kate Middleton (among others, like myself) is an example of this. This is what JSimps said about her baby girl in the latest edition of Elle Magazine:

Inside the mag, the mom-to-be (due any day now) confirms that her bundle of joy is indeed a girl, and if Simpson has it her way, daughter will follow in Mommy’s fashionable footsteps (and not dad’s cleats): “I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!”

Simpson continues: “Eric is so athletic — we’re gonna have this athletic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping, ’cause all she’s gonna want is sports bras and Nikes!”

I guess she’s never really been known for her brains, has she?  I must say, I love me some sports bras and Nikes, but I’d do almost anything for a pair of Louboutins.


Happy FITspiration Friday!  Brag a little bit…what awesome workout did you do this week or do you have planned for the weekend?!
