Cup of Joy

Cup of Joy

I woke up this morning to go to my 8 am class, but I just wasn’t feeling it today. It’s been a long week of tests, quizzes, and a paper, and honestly, my bed is just way more comfortable. Hey, at least I got up and tried to convince myself to go. It’s the thought that counts, right? 🙂 Some mornings, I just want to enjoy and take my time, and today was one of them. I texted Collin (my boyfriend) to convince him that it was a good idea for me to skip class, and thankfully, he was still asleep. He’s my personal mom on campus that gets after me if I don’t go to class. So responsible (which is obnoxious sometimes)! I guess I need a personal kick in my butt to go to class every once in a while everyday, so I’m thankful for it (sometimes).

Anyways, after ignoring my alarm a solid three or four times,  I hopped out of bed, ready for some breakfast so I could move along with my day. I had some Fage 0% Greek yogurt with a some cinnamon and splenda mixed in. Then I had my morning cup of coffee (otherwise known as my cup of joy) with some skim milk and splenda. I literally use the same mug every morning. Some of us (aka definitely me) just aren’t morning people and need a little boost of joy in the morning.

Well it’s Friday, and the weekend has officially started (even earlier than normal since I skipped my one and only class today)! I’m off to get a workout in and get some work done, so I can enjoy the weekend to the fullest! I need to decide who I am rooting for in the Super Bowl (no preference here, but I love cheering for one or the other and acting like I’m their biggest fan). Enjoy your morning!


Let’s get started!


Hey there! I’m Ashlyn. 🙂 I first started looking at blogs because of my ridiculous love for sweets, to drool over incredible food, and to look at recipes to make and bake.

I promise you I ate that entire thing by myself.

Then I got introduced to healthy living blogs, and I’ve been in love with the blogging world ever since! I loved getting healthy ideas for workouts and meals (especially living on my own in college these days). It honestly taught me how to truly be healthy with so many distorted views out there. With my incessant love for reading so many healthy living blogs and seeing the fun connections people make through the blogging world, I couldn’t resist any longer. Driven by my love for running, baking, healthy living, and life itself, I had to join in on the fun! So here I am, and we’ll see where it goes. 🙂
