Another day at the cabin

After a great first day at the cabins, I was up bright and early for another day at Sam Baker. I started my day with a run! (more on that later)

We started the day with eggs, bacon, and cherries- YUM

Question for you:

Are you a morning or an evening person?

-I definitely feel more alert at night, but my body seems to think 6:30 is always a good time to get up haha

Another quickie

Andrew and I were out of town yet again (not that I’m complaining AT ALL)

We headed out of town for the past three days. Another quickie vacation

I swear I will have more on this tomorrow, but it is time for bed. I work tomorrow, and I need to get some sleep so I can start the weekend right!

Question for you:
What are you doing this week?

Where is your favorite place to go for a long weekend? (or quickie vacation?)

Lake house

Every year in college, the friends and I would head to the lake house once in the summer for some shenanigans haha

This was taken when I was pregnant!!! And it isn’t even the whole group.

It was a VERY quick trip, but I am so glad we went. I was able to relax, and catch up with friends. I definitely needed that.

Question for you:

Any last horrahs before school starts? (or Monday for those who work haha)

Do you still hang out with friends from gradeschool, highschool, or college? Or new friends in life?

PIYO and Giveaway winners!!

Man. I have been all over the place! Yesterday, I got up at 4:30 am again to complete Week 4 before my 12 hour shift. I felt great yesterday getting up early and all day I never felt sluggish. I think I found my new workout time haha. WHO AM I!?!?!?

I then went to my parents, and watched the Opening Ceremony with my parents and my “second family” the Cupp family, that have been my parents neighbors since I was 12. They are family to me, and have been through so much with me the past 15 years! We had a blast talking till 10. We just had to watch the United States walk into the ceremony.

They always look like they belong on a yacht. But, I guess that it just Ralph lauren’s style. What do you think of their outfit?

Then this morning, I meet Annie at the gym for a 15 run on the treadmill and then a piyo class. I haven’t taken a class at the gym for awhile. This is a combination of pilates and yoga. It was awesome! My legs were shaking the whole time, but there was also lots of stretching!

Diving board

Today, was an extremely blah day. I did make it to the gym, I ran 2 miles and then biked 9. I felt great until about 1pm. I couldn’t get out of my funk! I’m worried that my vitamin D level is screwed up again. I just feel down and tired, but for no reason what so ever! I’m over that feeling haha

~~~~~~

Andrew and I decided we needed to get out of the house. so we headed to the pool!!!

Andrew decided on his own (just yesterday) that he wanted to go off the HIGH diving board!

I was SO proud of him!

He is swimming like a fish!

Now I just need to get him to stop holding his nose…..

Any  suggestions?

Dont forget the giveaway!! you only have until friday night when I pick a winner!!

Question for yoU:

-At the pool, would you rather just sun bath, go down the slide, diving board, or the lazy river?

Happy 4th of July

I hope everyone had a great fourth! I woke up at 6:30 excited to see Andrew. He has been at his dads the past two days, and I missed him!

I then went to the gym for another circuit training- Week 7. There is a reason it was week 7…IT WAS HARD!!!! But we finished.

Grabbed one or two of these 🙂

We then cleaned up, and headed to my brother and sister in laws house.

I brought the watermelon!

The boys played…

 

Swam in the pool…..

And ate cake (as did I!)….

I also enjoyed some frozen drinks 🙂

 

Question for you:

What is your favorite fourth of july memory?

-I love going to see fireworks

calling all lifeguards

Today was just one of those run around town kinda days.

It started with coffee, and a walk around the park with Andrew. It was a great way to start the morning. Followed by his baseball game.

Then it was pool time!!!!! The first of the season. And since it hit 95 billion degrees outside, it was perfect 🙂

I like this picture with the water in front of Andrew

 

Got a pedicure with my mom and sister in law

The boys joined us for dinner, where I had pizza and then ice cream. And I was doing so well on not eating junk today…darn it

My tree finally came home too! For my birthday, Andrew my mom got me a hibiscus tree. And then my mom got another for just ten bucks! My parents potted them for me, and  are now “home” on the deck. I love them, and can’t wait for them to bloom

Question for you:

What are you doing for Memorial Day weekend?

Do you go to a pool during the summer?
