Supposed To Rest + Girls Gone Glamping With Skinny Cow


Last night I headed to the gym on what was supposed to be a rest day. I went to TRX and almost died. No big deal. It’s all fun and games until you’re hanging from your feet.


Like I said, yesterday was technically a rest day according to my training plan. Since I haven’t been running as much as usual, I don’t even want to overdo my cross-training. I happened to skip a workout on Monday, though, so I’m still on track. It worked out perfectly, because I really wanted to go to the gym. I got to have my cake and eat it, too. Is that too cheesy? Maybe.

Speaking of sweets, there really are some amazingly delicious things you can tear into without feeling guilty about it. Y’all know I’m a huge proponent of eating everything in moderation, but no one can deny that those calories can add up quickly. One brand that knows how to satisfy your cravings (without feeding you cardboard!) is Skinny Cow. Remember when I told y’all I had some fun news to share? Well, I am in love this stuff. Yep, we’re making it official.

Kidding. Well, sort of. I am totally in love with those things, but I also have some really cool contest news regarding Skinny Cow. To really show that you can have it all with their brand, they are hosting a HUGE contest. I mean, legitimately huge. Not some “Oh, that’s nice” contest but a “OMG, how can I win that?”contest.

Skinny Cow truly believes in living in a paradoxical paradise. That means doing things like pairing wine with yoga, wearing Target with Tory B, or camping in a luxurious setting. Whoops. Totally just gave away the contest prize with that last one. The winners of the Skinny Cow contest will be going glamping, aka glamorous camping. What better paradoxical paradise could even exist?

All 18 women will also be treated to the best camping cuisine I’ve ever heard of, Skinny Cow treats on the reg, resort amenities and activities, and spending money. Y’all. Just from browsing the website, I can tell you this place is insane. I’ve never seen tents like this.

The contest is really just getting started, so stay tuned. For now, let me get to the exciting part for me. Eight bloggers and their best friends have been chosen to head to Montana next weekend to experience all that Paws Up has to offer prior to the contest. We will be your official “Glamp Counselors”, so to speak. We’ll be sharing pictures of our digs, our meals, and our activities while we are there so you can get a sense of what you might be winning! I mean, how gorgeous is this?

I am over the moon excited about this trip. I’ve never been glamping, I’ve never been to Montana, and I’ve never had unlimited access to the best ice cream and candy on the planet. Basically, my mind will be blown. I am incredibly fortunate to get to go, and I can’t wait to see who wins the next trip!

Question: What is your idea of the perfect paradoxical paradise? The comforts of home while in the middle of such a beautiful, natural setting sounds great to me!

“You can truly have it all with Skinny Cow Ice Cream and Candy – incredibly delicious and indulgent yet ridiculously sensible!

      I hate bugs so I’m hoping this means there are less of them, haha. And the bra is VS Sport. It makes me look like I actually have a chest. Win!

    I’m going Glamping in a few weeks in Santa Barbara! My husband, son and I are going to Disneyland then spending a few days on the coast. Since we are driving we didn’t want to haul all our camp gear so glamping it is! I’ve never been so looking forward to it!
