Anniversary Weekend & Snatch Workout

I can’t believe it’s already mid-July! Why does Summer always go by so quickly?! It has been awesome so far, spending my days with Frankie though. I really wanted to get him started with swimming but unfortunately none of the local places have daytime schedules right now 😕 It would’ve been a great activity to do with him but I guess it’ll just have to wait. 

His schedule seems to change on a daily basis. When I get used to something he changes it up on me! Haha So I have to keep in mind that when he falls asleep I can’t waste much time- I gotta do whatever it is that’s on my to do list because he could either take a 20 minute nap or a 2 hour nap. 

Besides working out, I also “work” my Rodan+Fields business when he’s napping. This might involve listening to a training call, replying to people’s messages or texts about the products, placing an order for a client or finding my next before & after to post. It’s been a fun few months and I’m just so happy that my customers are loving their products. I wish I lived closer to my teammates because they’re a fun, smart bunch!

Today I skipped running and focused on Olympic lifting and core. I did 6 rounds of:

5 snatches (45#)

20 Russian twists (15#)

20 side plank reach-thrus (left & right)

20 sumo squats w/15# plate

I definitely could’ve gone heavier on the weights but the point was to focus on  form with the snatches and to really engage my abs. 

I feel like I keep wearing this same outfit over and over again! Ahem, Athleta, maybe you can send me some stuff??
Frank and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary with a night out in NYC. We stayed at the W in Midtown and did fancy French dinner at Le Cirque. Although it was a great experience and the food was delish, I couldn’t wait to get a late night pizza from Room Service 🤗


The hubby and I have a 5K on Thursday night. This one is known for its rolling hills so I’m not expecting any PRs or awards but I’m just happy to get out pound some pavement and hopefully see some running friends. 

What’s in your to do list this week?

A Rodan+Fields Gift Guide for Mom

About 10 days ago, I decided to become an independent consultant for Rodan+Fields skincare. Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields are the two dermatologists behind the acne treatment line ProActiv, and are now focused on their anti-aging products among other amazing skincare essentials. I’m very excited about this small business of mine and hope you’ll think about buying from my online site when you’re in need of new skin goodies that actually work! Rodan+Fields is currently the number 1 fastest growing premium skincare company…and they are only being sold in the US and Canada right now. I’m just imagining the possibilities!
Previously sold in Bloomingdales and Nordstrom, Rodan+Fields was then taken out of retail and sold as a social commerce brand after market research showed that their customers were buying the products after hearing about it from their friends. I mean, seriously, that’s how I do a lot of my shopping, through family or friend recommendations. They have 0 advertising budget, yet they are mentioned in tons of beauty and other respectable magazines. Forbes recently said, “Rodan+Fields is increasingly rising to become one of the most well-respected skincare companies in the world.” Ahhmazing!

I took “before” pictures and look forward to sharing the “after” after a few months 🙂
