Caffeine and home workouts

Last night, I was flipping through channels before bed and happened across Disney. By some weird chance, the That's so Raven Christmas special was playing! Even better, it was followed with Sonny with a Chance, Hannah Montana, and Lizzie McGuire Christmas specials. No, I definitely did not stay up and watch every single one, I don't know what you're talking about.

Needless to say, I was a little tired after class this morning ;) I hit up Starbucks for some much needed caffeine!

Green tea lattes are my new jam. I had mine made with soy and 1 pump of vanilla instead of classic :)

The latte was perfect fuel for my day of studying :) Reading anthropology articles can be boring, but at least I had a pretty festive view. I also had the Nightmare Before Christmas on the TV in the other room. Kind of random, but I hate hate hate having dry hands in the winter, so I always have some sort of lotion near me (that little black pot). Lately I've been loving Charity Pot from Lush :) It keeps my hands super soft and 100% of the proceeds go to charity, so it's a win-win!

Fast forward 6 hours later, and I headed off to class again. Thursdays are my double class days and always super fun ;) Class actually flew by though, and it was the last one before finals begin next week!

After class my car was running on empty (oops), so I hit the gas station. I'm not sure what's going on with gas prices lately, but I'm okay with it staying this way :) (It's normally close to $1 more!)

I planned on hitting the gym after class, but it was pouring down sleet when I left so I opted for a home workout. 

I did the VS Model Ab Workout, 6 Minute Booty, and What Makes You Bootyful workouts from Blogilates and an arm workout from FitnessBlender :) These videos always look easy, but they kicked my butt! Literally. My knee is still bothering me so I'm really focusing on strengthening the glutes to get me back to normal :)

I worked out pretty close to bed so I wasn't hungry, but I had half of this protein shake from Svelte:

I mean, who doesn't like a protein shake who compliments you? ;) I had never had these before, but it was so good. It honestly tasted like a vanilla milkshake, and it's totally organic and vegan friendly :) They also have a cappuccino flavored one that I'm wanting to try next time!

Are you a Starbucks drinker? What's your usual order?

Do you like at-home workouts?


  1. I do like starbucks! I like the lattes and mochas the best. BUT, I haven't been to Starbucks in ages. I haven't even had a red cup yet! Shocker!!

    I am currently not registered with a gym, so my workouts are at home, but I don't do them that often

    1. Ooh, a mocha sounds really good right now :) That's really impressive though!

  2. Blogilates is so hard! Haha I always have issues with the model ab workout :)

    1. That was my first time doing it, and I thought my abs were going to rip haha.

  3. I am so excited with the gas prices lately! For the past couple months, I have not been sad to fill up my car! :)

  4. 2.45 for gas? WOW, I need to move there! haha

    Our prices are still steadily coming down, it's about 2.80 here and I'm loving it! :)
