Wedding Wednesday: Financé vs Financée vs Feyoncé

Lately, I have found myself typing this word a lot and I was never too sure which version of the word to use. So, I did what I always do when  I have a question – I consulted Mr. Google and was blown away by the result. So today I have officially dubbed Wedding Wednesday: Financé vs Financée vs Feyoncé.

Fiancé – SL

SL knocked it out of the park with this birthday gift. I love Queen B and try to emulate her each and every day.

The “101” Workout

Back to serious-ness here. I did a killer workout last night!

The 101 Workout

Get it? It all adds up to 101. Moving on.

I couldn’t decide between a cardio session or BodyPump when I got home form work so I decided to combine running and weights and came up with this gem. I finished this super sweaty workout in 34:58. My goal was 40 minutes #crushedit! I ran each of the miles on the treadmill between 6.0 and 6.8 at a 1% incline.


  • No treadmill? Run 0.5 miles from your house then run back.
  • No weights? Do regular sit ups, renegade rows and flies without weights.

Have a great Wednesday!

Why I Workout In the Morning

Wake up. Workout. Go to Work. Come home. Make and eat dinner. Relax. Go to bed. That is my schedule 95% o the time Monday through Friday. Now that my schedule has calmed down (aka no more school!) I have the “luxury” of working out before or after work but I prefer to workout in the morning, despite the 5:15am wake up call.

Here is why I workout in the morning:

wake up and run

Be a Fat Burning Machine

Workouts are fueled by energy. Energy comes from food. First thing in the morning, there is no food left in my belly so my fuel comes from fat stores. Easy as that! I am not a scientist so I can’t prove this completely but it makes sense and I like to think of all the excess fat getting scorched as I pound the pavement (or the treadmill).

I Sleep Better

Early as can be 5:15am workouts mean I have to hit the sheets early(-ish). When I work out at night, I’m all fired up and energetic and I don’t get to bed until much later than I should. Science says that when you exercise, your body temperature rises which can lead to trouble sleeping. I need all of the sleep I can get (contrary to this shirt) and after getting up super early every morning, I am super ready for bed at 10:00pm and I crash hard!

Better Food Decisions

cant out-train

After a morning sweat-fest I am not about to ruin it with a cinnamon bun or a half dozen donuts. I worked hard for that calorie-burn and I want to make sure I feed my body right afterward. You can’t out-train a bad diet, amiright?!

So what did I do this morning? Today was my rest morning so I just inclined walked on the treadmill while catching up with Orange is the New Black. I did do a great sweat-fest workout yesterday which I’ll share with you next week after a create a cute little pin-able graphic for you.

Have a great Thursday!
