Life Lately {February 2014}

Okay, well February sure flew by, huh? Here’s an update on what’s been going on in my life lately.

Life Lately

Exciting news…

I would say that one of most exciting things this month happened on the last day of the month. I was approved for the FitFluential Ambassador program!


“FitFluential is a nationwide network of highly influential fitness enthusiasts sharing their journey both online and offline through multiple social media platforms. Founded in April of 2011 by Kelly Olexa, FitFluential was designed to connect health and wellness brands with their ideal target market through customized, long-term experiential and contextual marketing campaigns.”

I’ve followed the FitFluential blog and have seen the FitFluential hashtag all over social media from other Fitfluential ambassadors for a while now. After looking into FitFluential a bit more, I decided to apply back in the fall. I think that this will be a great opportunity to not only get my name out there and hopefully get some new brand opportunities, but also to expand my networks and inspire some new followers and audiences. I’m excited to see where it leads me!

Ankle update…

My sprained ankle is recovering quite nicely. Luckily, this injury hasn’t been that bad. I haven’t been running or doing TOO much jumping, but I have still been lifting and doing cardio in other ways. I’ve seen the most improvement with my ankle over the last two weeks. I no longer feel a dull pain throughout the entire day, and it’s definitely not even close to being as sore as it was after workouts when I first sprained it. I started adding in jumping again, but only two feet jumping (hops in place, jacks, squat jumps, etc.). Nothing that requires alternating feet just yet. I’ve also weaned off the amount of Aleve and ice I need, and I’m back to wearing real shoes at work again (darn). Whenever I’ve felt down about the injury, I just look at this picture of my past trips to the orthopedic and remember that I always bounce back!

I snapped this while waiting for my orthopedic to come in the room. Kind of ridiculous, right? 🙂

Exciting Goodies/New Things

A fun-filled bag of goodies from Whole Foods in Arlington. More to come on what’s inside, stay tuned!

New standing desk (surprise gift from Tim). I’m loving the option to stand at work for at least parts of my day.

February Nature Box delivery. The rice sticks and pretzels were to die for.

Weekend Activities

Because my weeks have been crazy busy (working extra and subbing extra classes), I’ve tried to slow down on my weekend activities down a bit. I feel a little lame that nothing makes me more excited than having nothing to do on the weekends anymore. Don’t worry, I haven’t turned into a complete homebody (yet).

Snowy night in Boston with Tim for Valentine’s Day weekend

Korean BBQ date night. We used a Groupon to Koreana. While I enjoyed the night for a different type of experience, I don’t think I’d go back to this particular restaurant. Nothing wowed me enough?


My good friend Erin’s 30th birthday party at Kings. My friend Meghan was also up from Washington D.C., and it was great to catch up! So fun.

Brunch with my girlfriends from home. Of course I only snapped pictures of the food and my beverage. You can kind of see Tracy in the background. That counts, right?

  1. Feb favs include: a Sunday at the MFA’s Boston Loves Impressionism exhibit with lunch at the Aegean, a warm Saturday walking in Portsmouth NH, and Girls Paint Night with Crate friends! Pretty good.


  2. your doctor’s screen print looks like my dermo screen print right about now!! February wasn’t really the best month, mostly because I was dealing with my two different skin issues. Some highlights were: weekend escape home to maine (twice!), crazy deals at the lulu outlet and banana republic outlet, gym friends party, meeting new people (randomly on valentine’s day)… I guess it wasn’t so bad, huh?? Congrats, again, on the FitFluential news!!! I’m so excited for you and can’t wait to see all it brings you 🙂
