Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day everyone! How will you be celebrating Valentines day, or will you be? My bf and I exchanged chocolate (which I can't wait to dig into) and cards this morning :) and I will be working the rest of the day. I hope you all have a great day celebrating or not. I will leave you with some super cute Valentines things I love on Etsy.

DIY Chalkboard

Today I'm going to show you how to make a chalkboard out of a picture frame. I LOVE these and they are so simple. So to get started all you need is

- Chalkboard paint
- Picture frame
- Newspaper or something to lay down to spray on

I got the Chalkboard paint from Walmart and I just got a picture frame from the dollar store.Take the glass out of the frame and place it on some newspaper or whatever you have, I used a box. Spray paint on glass evenly (DO THIS OUTSIDE) It may need a couple coats. The spray can is great for a nice even finish.

After the paint is dry place the glass (now chalkboard) back into the frame and you are finish! Super easy! 

I have a few of these around my house and I love writing little quotes or sayings on them like this

It's Friday!!!

I don't know about you but I love reading little sayings like these. I sometimes even write some around my house for inspiration. I believe they do help me stay positive or motivated. Sometimes you just need a little reminder to have fun, keep going, or find the good in a situation that doesn't seem to have any and just to be happy and enjoy life.

Are there any words/sayings that you like/go by? I'd love to hear them. Have a great weekend!

30 Day Challenge

Ok so 7 days ago I started this 30 day challenge I came across on Pinterest. It's from Body Rock.TV what it is, is 5 workouts with 2 rest days each week for 30 days. I'm finding it really easy to stick to because the workouts aren't very long at all. They are pretty intense but they don't take up too much of your time which makes it super easy to keep with it. A lot of the workouts are only 12 minutes, some are timed so they may take you a bit longer but no more than 20 minutes. I measured/weighted myself before I started and will measure/weight myself when I'm done to see if there's been any change. I will post both measurements and weights on here after the 30 days (I'm not really doing this to lose weight but rather to tone up)
On the first day you do a 'fit test' and recored your score and you do it again later on to see how much you have improved. Check out how you do it here

Here are my scores

Squat Jump - 30
Push-ups - 20 (girl push-ups)
Burpees - 12
High Knees - 40 (or 80 if you count every knee)
Switch Lunges - 25
Tuck Jumps - 18
Straight Abs - 20

So Head over to Body Rock.TV  to do it too.

Wish me luck!
