Yesterday was pretty fantastic.
I sucked at the gym again but I still got a good 3.5 miles in. Most of them were on the Elliptical because my legs felt like tight stumps when I did my almost mile on the treadmill. Epic Fail. It's my own fault because I've been doing some new leg workouts - pop squats and lunges (thanks for the pictures Krista!)and I can barely walk let alone run. I love these new exercises though and I can really tell they are working so I am going to suck it up and continue to try and run. Ugh.. it gets SO frustrating not being at the level I was a month ago. I've been pretty discouraged but I'm trying to work through those feelings of "ugh, I just don't even want to try anymore." I keep telling myself that it sucks right now but anything is better than nothing and I WILL get back to where I was I've just got to keep going. Those are my daily pep talks lately which help but it's hard. I've been noticing a lot of the blogs I read people are having trouble lately- maybe something is in the air? It's nice to know that this is normal and I'm not alone, we all hit walls we just have to remember to BUST through them.
After the gym I was bound and determined to get some sun. Well, I got some alright...a little TOO much but I love it and I might go again today. Although, I will definitely wear a hat and SPF 100 on my face. Ekkk.
My mother in law has a pool and I usually try and go over there every weekend to get some sun. Yesterday was BEAUTIFUL - perfect sun tanning weather (no clouds) and my lovely sister in law Morgan joined me.

After 5 hours in the sun using Oil Sheen. Oops.
If you like your people like your chicken from Popeye's - Extra Crispy then you would LOVE us.
Blame it on this:
BUT this stuff is AMAZING. Makes you extremely dark - the only place I'm still super crispy is my face... it is terrible and I should have applied sunblock there. I'm a Dumbass. (I didn't put this olive oil on my face though- I'm not that stupid)
Overall It was a great Saturday! I love my SIL she acts just like I did when I was her age and hanging out with her is always fun. I have to work Tomorrow so this (and possibly today) was my Fourth of July pool time.
What are your plans for the 4th?
