Weekend Reads 08-02-2014


    Hello lovely people, how have you been? I realised right now that I am feeling really good, considering the time of the year it is.

Working out does take several hours out of my week, but I'm actually much more productive because I have more mental and physical energy, and more motivation. So yay! I bullied the fitness instructor at my gym to teach me how to use weights and lunges, and as a result I have jelly legs and really sore muscles. it kind of feels good.
