We're Moving?!

That's right, folks! Moving on to bigger and better things. (Sorry, Blogger. It's been. Fun?)

SO. That means if you stumbled upon this little blog, it means I haven't updated a link somewhere! If you could contact me at amanda@runprincipessa.com and give me a heads up, that would be super!

Oh. And don't forget to head over to the new and improved Run Principessa!

I want to give a huge thanks to Tara and Jenny for getting me all set up. Definitely check them out if you're looking for a little upgrade yourself. :)

And because I'm not the one to leave you without a smile.

I Love Goals

Hey everybody. Good afternoon on this Monday. I hope you're having a wonderful day. And I hope that today is a day that you set some goals for the week. Because then, you can blog about The Weekly Chase too. Get there, do it! :)







I'm switching up the colors this week. Let's see how last week's goals stack up, yeah?

Groupon fitness class. Vlog. Shoe analysis. Yes! Yup! And no, but for a good reason. Plus I'm going this evening. It's really just because Paul decided he wanted to go too and our schedules didn't match up last week. I think that's an acceptable reason to move some things around. :)

Looking good, slick.

That was before my bootcamp class on Friday. Reppin' some sweatpink swag and a goofy face. The class kicked my butt pretty badly. It was upper arms and on asphalt. And I had no gloves. So my hands were pretty freaking tender when I went into work.

P.S. Have you ever tried cat push-ups? I cannot do them. Not a bit. I don't know if there's another name for them. But you're basically on all fours. Then you lift your knees up like it's no big deal and do some push-ups.

...................sure.

Onto this week's goals! 

Goal #1: Set up my blog to be pretty freaking fantastic. Yup, that's right. My blog is going through the big step transfer to self hosting. It's also getting a re-design that I could not be more excited about! I want to set it up to be glorious. And glorious it shall be. Obviously, more information will be coming on this. :)

Goal #2: Repeat my goals for last week. Is this cheating to put three goals into one? Nope. I don't think so. I want to form some sort of habits here. So I'm going to a fitness class again, vlog again, and go on a Philadelphia Runner date.

Goal #3: RUN. I must confess I've been slacking on the running front. I need to get my butt MOVING. I need some way to be inspired or motivated. That's where I'm having the troubles. I feel like my half is too far away to pull motivation from that. I know that's the wrong way to think about things, but it's where I am. And I need to get out of there!

Goal #4: Take another bubble bath. And go on a date. Oh man, am I putting two goals into one? Goal chunking is evidently the theme for this week. *Note: My bubble bath is not a date. So chunking does not mean killing two birds with one stone.

Love this guy.


I don't want this blog to be forever long, so I'm going to continue with my blog challenge tomorrow. Let's try to get through this Monday! I'm going to run some errands and then go for a bit of a run. Three miles are on my plate today. So I'm excited!

What are your goals for this week?

Vlog About Vlogging

I was going to post an Nsync song to start out this post, seeing as it's payday. But apparently I started out another post with it. Oops. Deal with it. HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYBODY!



Let's get this started, shall we?


Peanut Butter and Jenny


Day 12: My biggest accomplishment in life. Woah. Um. Honestly, my biggest accomplishment hopefully hasn't happened yet, because I'm always wanting bigger and better things. But so far, I'd have to say I felt most accomplished when I figured out the track I wanted to take. I've talked before about how I was every major under the sun before I turned to Kinesiology. But once I set on that pace, everything just fell into place. I would sit in Anatomy & Phys class spellbound by the information I was learning (who the heck talks about anatomy that way??) and everything just felt right.

Then I went on to become way more involved in my blogging than I ever thought I could be. I discovered FitFluential. I discovered Fit Approach. I tested for my personal trainer certification. I'm waiting in anticipation to hear back.

And I feel happy. Truly happy. :)

Day 13: The question is: would I rather be rich or healthy? My answer is healthy, and it's as simple as that. I need to be healthy to do the stuff that makes me happy. That's all there is to it.

So I'm officially opening donations. ;)

You'll hear about my workout on Monday as part of the Weekly Chase, so for now we're moving right along....Today I vlogged about vlogging!!

I'd love to hear your tips and tricks. And I'd love to watch your vlogs. So comment! Discuss!

And stay away from black cats today. :)
