Summer 2019 fitness routine and goals

adidas athleisure workout fitness

My Mom and I going for a hike during spring 2019, see full post here /

The kids are out of school, which means my schedule shifts to summer! I love summer vacation, because it means I have the freedom in my schedule to really stick to my workout routine. This means I have no excuses, I will workout five days per week!

Summer vacation means more than a free schedule, it offers beautiful weather; which allows for more outdoor workouts. I love staying fit outside! Outdoor workouts are also a great way to involve my kids in my fitness routine, since they see outdoor fitness as more of a family fun outing than a workout. haha, I have them fooled!

Without further ado, here is my summer 2019 fitness routine:

Monday: Treadmill with weights. (cardio + strength)

Tuesday: 9Round (Interval + strength)

Wednesday: Spin (cardio + interval, my daughters go too!)

Thursday: Swimming (cardio, this involves the kids too!)

Friday: Spin (cardio + interval, my daughters love this class)

Saturday: Family hike (we try to go to a different trail every week)

Sunday: rest day

It’s an easier schedule than I have created in the past. I’m keeping things low impact this summer as my neck heals from the car accident I was in last spring. This is a great schedule for keeping me fit, and rebuilding my spine strength.

We finally have sunshine here in the San Francisco Bay Area! Our spring weather was so crazy cold. It felt like late fall instead of late spring. Last week we had fog and 60 degree temperatures, this week we have 90 degree weather. It is quite a change!

Since sunshine is naturally cheerful, I felt like wearing a happy, yellow top to kick off summer vacation when I met my friend Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun for lunch, and of course, blog photos! I felt like the cheery yellow hue represented summer sunshine.

We snapped a few photos on the streets of Campbell, and then enjoyed a leisurely lunch at Flights on Campbell Ave. If you are local, and haven’t eaten there yet, it is a must-do! They have a fun menu you can mix and match, and a hip atmosphere. You will love it!

Our lunch conversation consisted of our favorite brands to take on vacation with us this summer, and New York Fashion Week! It’s never too soon to start talking about fashion week. After all, it’s the biggest fashion gathering of the year; well, technically it happens twice a year, but who is being technical?? haha, I’m not!

I’m so excited summer vacation starts this week. Has summer vacation started for you too?

If you have been following along for quite some time, you may have noticed that blue is my favorite color. Anytime I see blue on the runway, or in the color report for any given season, I go crazy! Crazy in a good way! I just love blue!

So, when I spotted so many beautiful shades of blue on the spring/summer 2019 couture runways, I was in heaven! Shades of blue are my favorite hues! I love every shade of blue imaginable. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at a few shades of blue, and a couple touches of pale green, from the spring/summer 2019 couture runways!

I’m so inspired by all these shades of blue from the spring/summer 2019 couture runways! Which color group inspires you?

Thanks for stopping by!
