There are so many!!!
I LOVE unique backs on shirts and dresses. I think it gives the piece so much character and if you work out like I do, it's fun to show off your hard work. And I don't know about you, but an exposed back is definitely the sexiest you can get. Here is some inspiration I accumulated on my Pinterest!

I can't exactly pinpoint what it is about this quote, but when I saw it, it really struck me. I wrote it down AND made it my facebook status (I know, so serious...). I feel like this makes you kind of take a look at your life and the things and people in it and evaluate whether you appreciate them or if you are letting them slip ahead or leaving them ignored. I actively try to make people in my life feel like I appreciate them, I truly feel like it is one of the most important things in any relationship that you have. A lot of people think that giving and receiving is appreciation, but for me its just a phone call, a card, a text message, a hug. Showing that appreciation can be so simple and yea of course its always nice and fun to make a grand gesture, but not everyone has the means to do so. The little things usually mean more anyway. So do me a favor, this weekend, take a look at your life: What/Who do you appreciate? Why do you appreciate them/it? How do you make them feel or show appreciation for having that thing or person in your life?
Don't let the important things slip out of your fingers. It sucks to appreciate what you had.

Back to work. It's been a while since I did a fitness post and I am glad to be back at it. Exercise and sports have always been a part of my life; my parents put me on basketball, track, swimming and softball teams starting when I was 5. I always took it for granted and just did what I had to do without realizing what or how my body was looking and feeling the way it was. Starting about 3 or 4 months ago I decided to do pretty much what this Nike ad says (I know I am corny), "Make your body. Make your life. Make Yourself." I feel like I have finally taken control of my fitness and my body. I decide the shape I want it to be in and how far I want to push myself. Incorporating a lot more weight training and less just plain cardio has definitely made that difference for me. And on top of that, keeping track of every workout in a fitness notebook holds me accountable and also helps me see how much I have accomplished and how far I have come.
Remember, clothes don't look good unless your body looks good!
