Random Thoughts Thursday.

Happy fall to you and yours! The Texas sunsets this week for running have been absolutely spectacular. All of my favorite colors in the sky that is for sure. Plus cool evenings and mornings just make my soul oh so very happy.

-This week I have to admit I’ve been obsessed by this Gabby Petito story. She was such a beautiful girl and my heart is broken for her family.

What has been making me HAPPY this week – teaching classes at the gym nonstop and ICE COLD eucalyptus towels. Plus the steam room after a power packed calorie torching workout. I teach 5 classes this week and a 2 hour fundraiser ride coming up. Blissful times in the life of Chelsea.

I have to say I am happy that being a fitness instructor is a superpower of mine. Most rewarding side hustle hands down.

My favorite vitamin right now. B complex in liquid form. Keeping these legs of mine revved up and ready to go.

The State Fair of Texas has officially starts tomorrow! Although I am excited for the fair I think I may wait until the excitement dies down and go in October.

Wine tasting weekends…yes so happy that fall festivals are back.

Share some happy things about your day with me! Any fall festivals popping up in your area ?

Random Thoughts Thursday.

My morning started with a power packed 13 mile ride and a run around the ‘hood. My early morning peeps always work so hard! I love the 5:30 AM energy and hearing the whizzing of the bikes as we jam out with party lights. Teaching a spin class + getting my run in + eucalyptus steam room equals a happy Chelsea.

The sunsets on my evening runs have actually been the real winner though. Like that pic above. Watch more sunsets than Netflix…always my motto.

Yes, Life Time is so awesome we even have OUR OWN WATER NOW. And it is delicious and in this pretty BPA free bottle.

I am back on my vanilla chai kick. Drinking this as we speak while I have some clove essential oil in my diffuser.

Chillhop essentials Fall 2021 just came out. Perfect music to work and write to. When I am at my career girl job. But maybe even do some yoga too. It is a whole vibe.

I’ve been enjoying just running for fun still and not really posting as much on the social media front. I do have to promote my class a lot still on our Life Time group pages but taking a back seat to being hyperactive on certain platforms is actually quite nice and refreshing.

Grapefest is this weekend! So you know where I will be. And then the State Fair of Texas begins next week!! Two festivals that I did not get to experience last year. I am so very glad fall festivals are freaking back. Oh happy day.

Share some randomness with me from your day! What is your favorite fall drink ?
I dabble in some pumpkin spice coffee (not the latte) but my jam has to be the vanilla or pumpkin chai.

Random Thoughts Thursday.

LOVED starting my day with a quick 12 mile ride on my spin bike plus a run before work. This view outside the gym was absolutely fantastic and I was drenched in sweat after.

It is fun finding routes around the gym to do my runs…this gym in particular is in a really affluent neighborhood so I feel like I’m watching HGTV or something running around mansions getting my miles in.

I had a fabulous turn out this morning too for class. Things are a bit socially distanced still at the gym but our cycle studio is massive so plenty of room to spread out. I love good morning energy too and my class definitely brought it. I am looking forward to teaching tonight too (today is my double dose day)

I always sleep amazingly well when I have a TRIPLE THREAT THURSDAY. That’s what I like to call it – I used to do them a lot back in the day = gym (bike & weights) / run / gym.

I’ve been hydrating like crazy lately with the Texas heat and humidity. This morning felt like an absolute sauna. I’m definitely eating all of the watermelon and drinking my electrolytes.

Has anyone been getting into shows on PEACOCK?! I’ve been watching Dr. Death (listened to most of the podcast) and I am not one to enjoy blood and violence (I have a tattoo of a sun for goodness sakes – just call me Miss Sunshine) but it is something about this story that sucked me in. Maybe because the Dr. was based out of TX and my dad was a doctor growing up it is just an interesting story watching people in the medical field and seeing all of the hot mess that goes on behind the scenes. I had to take a break from it because it got heavy earlier in the week but I may jump back on it today.

Share something random about your day with me! Good – bad – or just to vent. Here for ya.
