The summer of weddings continues with Golden State Warriors guard, Stephen Curry, marrying his college sweetheart, Ayesha Alexander! The wedding took place this past Saturday in their hometown of Charlotte, NC. The couple met in a church youth group when she was 14 and he was 15 and have dated since Stephen was a sophomore at Davidson College.
It’s always hard for me to maintain a consistent workout schedule during the summer months. I travel more, eat out more, and ultimately gain more weight! With the kids headed back to school next week, I’m really looking forward to getting back to my daily workout routine and usual eating habits. Summer was fun, but it’s back to reality and this latest workout definitely jumpstarted my mindset back into “let’s get it” mode!
