Sweaty Saturday

There is so much to do in San Diego, its such a shame to sit at home and not get out there! SO a part of my New Years goals {I don’t like the sound of resolutions} was to take advantage of my weekends and explore my own home town of San Diego.

On Saturday my Mom and I decided to go check out the running trails around Balboa Park.

Balboa Park is such a gorgeous place and I’ve always enjoyed the architecture surrounding the area. I definitely recommend checking it out if you haven’t had the chance to walk around and explore! There are marked trails and we chose to try for the 4.1 mile stretch or #2 trail. It wasn’t as hard as I expected {AKA I didn’t die} and its always fun to get some sunshine and exercise on a pretty Saturday!

A map of the trails! We took the Yellow #2 trail

After our run we were craving something healthy to top it off so we did a quick search of some juice places in the area. We found on Yelp a place called Juice Alchemy, which was right down the street from the park.

We chose to get the Meanie Greenie & PB+C. Let me tell you, those were SUCH great juice smoothies for after a run! I am definitely going to hit this place up again when I am in the area or if I just need a tasty, healthy refresher. The staff was so sweet and helpful when we were deciding upon what to get! I was afraid the green drink would be not so tasty/bitter but it was DELICIOUS. Also the PB+C was like dessert 🙂

Overall it was such a perfect Saturday afternoon and I felt so refreshed! It is so nice to get out of the apartment on a sunny day and enjoy some exercise and tasty treats with a friend!

Mom and I even took a #SweatySelfie after our run since we were so proud of making it the whole 4 miles!

Okay friends, now its your turn to get out this weekend and get moving!

Let me know what you think or where you are sweating at that I should check out next.

Reawakening

Hi friends, its been awhile since I’ve posted anything {five months.. embarrassing, I know} but I am back in action and have a million new ideas for this blog! I feel revived and ready to take on new projects and really focus on things that make me the happiest {aka food, fashion, art}. So keep tuned for some really exciting new things to come!

On to business… I haven’t typically posted anything too personal on my blog in the past, but I think I want to change that and add in snippets of my life and what is happening. I think that Krys Loves should be about everything and anything I love in life, so I plan on sharing it all. Also, there may be a few things I’ll share that I don’t love, but I hope that through my trials and errors, maybe you can learn from my mistakes and then my mistakes won’t suck so much, amiright.

My hiatus over summer was something I like to now refer to as the Summer of Unfortunate Events. Anyone who knows me well also knows that I am the Queen of Stressing the Small Stuff. So, when bigger things come along that are stressful I crawl into my little hole and try to avoid dealing with everything. Obviously not the best way to deal with your problems, but unfortunately with everything going on this summer that is exactly what I did. And while I was in my sad little hole I didn’t even realize I was there. It took the people who love me to shake me up and open my eyes to the way I was living {or not living} my life.

On to the present.. I finally got my wake up call and although it is not the easiest task to make a change, it is soo important to take the time to do things that make you happy. I started small and now each day I try to wake up and meditate/think about how blessed and lucky I am to live the life I do. I think everyone could take this advice no matter what your current happiness level is. For me personally, I have been making small changes that ultimately make ME happy without any thought to what others will think {cus who cares, right}. I have been making crafts, reading books, and even redefining my style {aka I now have pink hair}.

I really hope that each and every one of my readers will take the time to do little things that make you happy. It is really unbelievable the impact of a positive attitude and cultivating positive thoughts. A lot of the time you don’t even realize you are dwelling on the bad in life, so I encourage everyone to take a moment to think of 3 amazing things in your lives and recognize how great life is!

Love you all and so happy to be back!
