Just tryin to get mah gym on

24 Days Till Move In

I am so excited but also so shocked that summer is already almost over! It went soo quick!

I really want to focus these next 3 1/2 weeks on eating better. Ive been stellar at going to the gym, but terrible in the grazing department haha I tend to do that far too often lately, like I’ll find myself looking back on the day thinking “Wow I ate a ton…but not really any solid meals” So I need to be more conscious about getting full meals in not just tons and tons of snackin if that makes sense?

…I honestly have no idea if that actually made sense but it makes sense in mah noggin soo I got this haha

Oh also planning to incorporate T25 workouts into my day to day. It’s only 25 minutes so that’ll almost be like a nice cardio-style workout that isn’t too long and will be a perfect addition to my lifting!

Yaaaay! I’ve already seen so much progress so I’m pumped to see where I am a day, a week, a month…even a year from now!

BETTER. THAN. YESTERDAY.

my appetite lately is enough for a small colony

and sad but true but that’s exactly how I’ve been feeding it

opiumokiya asked: Hey Riia! I have a longboarding question. Where do you like to ride? Do you take your board down big hills? I have a board but most people I know like to ride down huge hills and I get scared doing that D: thanks!

Oh girl I like to ride anywhere! My go to is this local trail though, I just shlove it bunches and can cruise for miles :P also parks are bunches of fun with lotsa good scenery.

OH and parking garages that are empty! SO GOOD for cruising.

I haven’t really bombed any crazy big hills…the sunshine state (at least where I’m at) is pretty flat, I do love hill cruising though when I can, I was scared at first too, but girl let me tell you SO MUCH FUN. SO FREEING. SO LIBERATING. I just love it.

Get comfortable cruising and try some solid bunny hils and medium sized hills and before you know it you’ll be joinin your buddies down huge hills!

First things first when did my hair grow?
Second, baseball caps at the gym make me feel incognito and pretty hardcore. I can dig it
Third, you can’t really see my booty sweat but newsflash light leggings when I’m planning to get some squattin action in is no bueno.
Also, still waitin on dem biceps to pop an appearance…

lifting-blonde asked: How did you ever manage three jobs and being a full-time student WHILE maintaining a social life and decent grades?! How was there even enough time to do all of that?!

Weeeeell it definitely was not the easiest to say the least.

I was busy everyday except Monday’s. Sunday’s & Wednesday’s I was working at Quiksilver, Tuesday’s & Thursday’s I had classes all day long, and Friday & Saturday I worked like 10-4 at the beach club and 4:30 to close at the beach restaurant/marina…and close sometimes wasn’t till like 11pm.  Oh and I was babysitting every now and then too..yeaaah crazy lol

I eventually quit working at Quiksilver towards the end of the semester so I could focus more on my studies (my grades had suffered a bit, but I pulled through in the end with good passing grades! Yay haha), but overall balancing wasn’t too tough. I live with my best friends so that was awesome to always come home to good energy! And I literally made the most of every free moment, spending as much time as possible outside and taking every opportunity…as an opportunity!

It really taught me to savor every hour in the day and not take advantage of days off.

Anonymous asked: how come you don't work in the summer? that's cool :)

Trust me this is not a normal thing! I usually work summers at the aquarium, but after a super hectic semester where I was super busy balancing multiple jobs and a full time course load, I decided to take this summer off from working and it has been so nice!

As soon as I start school I’ll be back at the beach club as well as working at the beach marina/restaurant, but taking a little break to just focus on myself has been really freeing and awakening and although I didn’t make nearly as much money as I would in a typical summer, I wouldn’t trade these past few months for anything!

…butt sweat is hot right?

Monday Morning stretches…the only way to start your week

Anonymous asked: Do you use a schedule to plan out your weeks?

When I was working 3 jobs on top of being a full time college kid with a social life last semester…you betta believe I had to schedule shenanigans haha

But now I’m on summa mode and I have absolutely noo s c h e d u l e

…and it has been incredible!

Typically though I wake up, go to the gym, come home, get my grub on (aka eat eat eat) and than get to my day!

life is g o o d

life is oh so g o o d right now

as always

meeting more people

taking more chances

being happier here

being happier now

taking every opportunity

never wiping this silly grin off my face

not falling to society’s norms

walking to my own beat

 and lovin every second

Happieeee Sundaaiiieee!

Smile because there was another sunrise & another day where you woke up from a night of slumber and dreamin!

Today is new and it’s the perfect day to have a perfect day!
