3 QUICK FATHER’S DAY GIFTS

123

anyone else obsessed with amazon prime? free and fast shipping is right up my alley. here’s 3 ideas for your dad, in case you put the shopping off and need a good gift in time…

dad

1. bose noise canceling headphones (one of the best gifts anyone has ever given me. i use them on every plane ride!)

2. fitbit (my dad is really active, so this is perfect)

3. mini jambox (sometimes i get my dad an itunes gift card. but i think a little portable speaker he can connect over wireless is something he could enjoy for his workouts, road trips, or during yard work)

the designlovefest studio is located in downtown los angeles in the art’s district. it is 3500+ square feet, with two private offices, a large common area, kitchen and bathroom. it has all wood floors, a freight elevator that opens up directly into the space, lots of natural light and is located on the second floor of the building. the building area is gated and secure, we have never had any theft issues. parking is difficult in this area of town but there is split use of a parking space that can be used 50% of the time. most of the work done in the space is quiet computer work with a couple of photoshoots per week.  looking for someone low key to join our little office community!

you will have access to most of the space, besides the designlovefest office area. there is a smaller office that is shared with one person and also a larger area in an open space if you wanted to set up a desk or two there. if you are serious about it, we can show you the space in person! the price is $900 a month and that includes all utilities, some storage, cleaning, and a 50% split on a parking space.

FITNESS UPDATE!

Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 1.51.15 PM

it has been awhile since we did a #dlfgetfit check in and i’ll be honest and say that 2016 hasn’t involved much working out for me. i was on a crazy travel schedule and consistency just wasn’t possible. all of my trips did involve a ton of walking which was good but i definitely needed to step it up a bit. i’m back in LA for awhile now and have been refocusing my energy on creating a manageable fitness schedule. that joanie, she always has a way of bringing me back to this healthy side.

WORKING OUT:

last year when we started this challenge i really dove in head first and took it super seriously. i completely changed how i ate and went from working out zero to 5 days a week. looking back, i think setting that pace for the start wasn’t really manageable for me. i went full force for awhile and then completely burned out. so this time around i’m focusing on consistency and setting myself up for long term success. i shifted from doing all different types of workouts to just one studio and that has been a great adjustment. i realized that i need structure and moving around all the time wasn’t providing that for me. i also realized that i needed a place that doesn’t allow for an excuses, no lack of parking, or super busy studio. basically, don’t give me a reason to skip my workout because i will take it. and so far it’s worked, i’ve started by committing to just two days a week which i know doesn’t sound like a lot but it’s better then my zero. and i hope to increase it to three days a week in the next few weeks.

i’m working out half on the treadmill, and half pilates. the class size is small, it’s close to my house and i’m actually loving the running portion. well…i don’t love it while i’m doing it but i love the feeling afterwards and it’s been cool to watch myself get faster and faster. i’ve probably only gone about 8 times so far and i am already seeing small changes in my body and mind. i’m excited to see the real results!

EATING:

i must admit…this part is the hardest for me. still struggling with the same story…i eat out too often during the week, and with a travel schedule it’s hard to limit myself and feel like i’m not depriving myself of something i want to do. eating and drinking is FUN. but, i do know that if you want results with your body you have to put in the work. there aren’t a lot of shortcuts. so i’ve been cutting back on drinking during the week. i guess i don’t really neeeeed that glass of wine or two with dinner. it’s probably more of a habit anyway. and i don’t keep unhealthy food in my house. if i stay in more, i’m bound for success, right? usually the working out kickstarts the healthier eating, so i am just waiting for that to kick in honestly.

so where are you at in the fitness journey? are you working out, struggling for motivation, killing it and never felt better? we’d love to hear. health and fitness is a journey and we all need as much love and support as we can get!
