Fun & Free Workouts During May in Austin

Rooftop Yoga_Natalie ParamoreI am literally squeezing in this Fit Friday at the last minute! Which kind of seems how things have been going for me all month, ha! Even with the best of intentions, having such an irregular schedule can make it difficult to keep up with workouts on the reg. I’ve been taking advantage of the cooler(ish) mornings and taking long walk/jogs with my pup on trail. I definitely want to get back into my Crush workouts which always leave me feeling balling. But the hot weather is looming on the horizon (like as in the this afternoon) and we are about to start living in short shorts, breezy dresses and swim suits here in Austin. I want to feel strong and toned while baring all this extra skin. So I have rounded up some great fun and free workouts in May in Austin! Whether you are coming in town for the weekend or just want to try out some new workouts, here is a list of a few of my favorites + a few donation workouts for a good cause!

Asian-Inspired Flank Steak Lettuce Wraps

Asian Flank Steak Lettuce Wraps_Natalie Paramore

A fresh start to the week and a fresh recipe! Ok, well I mean fresh as in flavor because this is one of those recipes I’ve had tucked away and haven’t found the time to post until now. I really like this recipe because you can easily swap out the protein with chicken or tofu and keep everything else the same and it will still be delicious! This recipe can easily be made for dinner one night and pack the leftovers for lunch the next day. Since I made this recipe for Austin Woman, I even included tips for a kid-friendly version. If only lunch box recipes were this cool back in the day!

A Girl’s Weekend at Lake Austin Spa

Girls Weekend at Lake Austin Spa_Natalie Paramore

Y’all, if you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you know I’ve visited Lake Austin Spa Resort a few times this year! I was treated to a spacation this past summer and a girls day getaway a few weeks ago with my friend Jane from A Taste of Koko. Needless to say, I have been blown away every time I have visited! I can’t believe this wellness spa is only 30 minutes outside of Austin. The river retreat really transports you to somewhere so lush and green and tranquil. Which is probably why Lake Austin Spa Resort has been #1 in Texas & the Southwest by Conde Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice.

From a boat taxi that will whisk you away to the spa from 360 Bridge to a luxury car service to and from downtown, Lake Austin Spa is an easy daycation from downtown Austin or a luxury all-inclusive getaway for a weekend or longer if you’re lucky!
