Commenter YS mentioned Sydney Cummings yesterday and I was intrigued, so I tried out her first Summertime Fine 3.0 workout today (link below — her workouts are all FREE on YouTube; you subscribe/pay extra if you want access to a Facebook Group + monthly workout calendars).
Anyway, I cannot give a full review after one workout obviously, but I was impressed! It definitely had some similarities to BB but a) it’s not an MLM and b) her personality was lovely. This 30 minute HIIT was divided into 5 circuits and went by quickly.
Of course after writing my post yesterday I had one of my best threshold runs (increased speed AND enjoyed it!) so I’m not ready to give up my running training. But maybe instead of 4 runs/2 strength I’ll make it 3 + 3. Or 4 + 3 (but realistically I almost always end up taking at least one day off).
ANYWAY! Yesterday was a decent day. I accomplished everything on my list. There were some nice moments (and some hard moments!) with the kids. We did manage to swim for about an hour in the afternoon before thunder rumbled. And there was pizza.
I am playing with a new daily spread from a Kyoto-based company, andstudium. Technically this is a study planner, but I saw more potential! I ordered mine here (Honeypress NC — small NC-based business!). Review coming to BLP soon!
My Full Focus (<– affiliate link) is almost finished + I was going to try out Simplified but cannot bring myself to actually use it. It’s so pretty and I love the cover, but just too big for my purposes because I also need to carry around my EC. I don’t need my daily to have a year’s worth of pages and I really don’t love split weekends (or pre-filled in Sunday tasks). SO. Enter the above (tiny, slim) book instead that I bought on a whim to try out! I don’t LOOOOVE the paper texture but it’s workable. More details to come on BLP!

Side note: Organize 365 is running a free 5-day Back to School Blitz – videos air next week (though I think will still be available later) and there are printable to help you prioritize for the season. Thought those who were interested in OG365 but not ready to fully invest might want to check it out – the printables look useful! (Our kids go back to school in ~3 weeks. AHH!)
