The Color Run- 5K!

20130608_080828

Running in The Color Run has been on my bucket list for 3 years! The moment I saw gifs of Pinks, Purples, Yellows and Blue neon colors flying through the air- I knew I HAD to be a part of it!

Since my boyfriend Bryan and I (he’s a Marine) have began to love working out and maintain our health lives together, we decided to run it as a team! There is not better feeling then getting fit and having the one you love right beside you encouraging you to push yourself even harder. When the Color Run finally came to San Diego, we both bought our running bibs, and counted down the days 🙂

Our team name was of course “The Fitspirational Blonde” (which was on the back of our custom made T-Shirts.)

The Front of our shirts said “Running towards our Happily Ever After!”

Details:

  • Distance- 5k (3.1 miles)
  • Location- Down Town San Diego (the streets were completely blocked off for the color runners, it was so surreal)
  • Time- 7am!
  • Cost- $50 per person, and color packets were an additional $3 per packet.

As you can see, we had THE TIME OF OUR LIVES. It was Bryan and I’s first ever run, and it was a perfect run to begin with. Not too long, not too expensive, and a good time was had by all. I definitely recommend you trying the color run when it comes to your city. Challenge yourself. Get out of your comfort zone and try something new. You’re not going to get any more in shape by watching races on TV, get up and participate!

Brand New Kitchen Table!!

Last night, the two men in my life (my dad and my boyfriend Bryan) decided to adventure into the infinite abyss of IKEA in search of a new kitchen table. After about 30 minutes in that HUGE maze of a store, we finally found this big dark wood beautiful table!!

I am so in love with it, if I could sit there staring at the lake in my back yard and blog all day I totally would.

First Meal on new table

We just had dinner on it and I’m proud to say it was incredibly healthy. A great way to kick off a new table and the beginning of summer in a Fitspirational way 🙂

  • FRESH Corn (steamed with a bit of pepper)
  • FRESH Brussel Sprouts (steamed with a bit of honey and pepper)
  • Home made grape juice in classy wine glasses.

This is going to be such a great summer, I can already feel it.

Jillian Michaels- Body Revolution

Hey guys,

After an intense semester in college, I’m officially back to blogging for the summer! I worked so hard to get good grades, that I definitely earned every second of blogging time. I honestly feel SO out of shape though, unfortunately taking finals burns absolutely NO calories. If breaking a sweat got me straight A’s, I’d be living in my gym.

BR cds

Anyway, as you guys know, I usually kick my summer off by starting Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred. However, since I’ve finished it 4 times all the way through already, I decided to challenge myself and see what else is out there. I found out Jillian Michaels has a more intense work out, called BODY REVOLUTION.

Body revolution is a 90 day workout, which is 60 days longer then the 30 Day Shred!

I’m excited to earn my body for the next 90 days. My body Revolution starts tomorrow.

Brittany is going from skinny to FIT!

I’ll be posting every day about how i’m feeling (the good AND the bad) as well as an occasional progress update.

If you’re going to start any kind of summer workout or have already started one, PLEASE message me! I love knowing who else is motivated enough to push themselves through an entire workout, so we can be there for each other when we’re feeling unmotivated.

Any more questions? Just ASK

This is going to be a great summer, I can already feel it 🙂

Xox Brittany,
