Well folks, summer is treating me well so far (in case you were wondering 😉 )! I know that working in a heat wave must be a major bummer- but vacationing in a heat wave is divine!
Yesterday I headed to the gym with Amy for some weights. All school year I think about how amazing it would be to just have the whole day to hit the gym and then do whatever so I am taking full advantage of the opportunity! I met her at 10:15 and works our Backs.
Before the gym I attempted for a second time to make crepes. I used a recipe given in a blog comment and know I mixed it well, but they stuck to the pan (and yes, I sprayed it generously with cooking spray).
Unless this is what they are supposed to look like (floppy and flimsy and broken) then I am not a crepe chef. 😦 Anyone want to give me lessons? Haha! I’ve never actually had a crepe so I may not even like them- BUT I want to give them a shot!
With that failure in the garbage, I opted for a bowl of Kashi 7 grain flakes with a half cup of Stoneyfield vanilla yogurt.
And last night I surprised Jack with a pizza and some fires for dinner! We layed low- he did homework and I watched the Just Bieber special and Chelsea Lately on E!, haha.
This morning was a.m. gym with Amy, we did ABS and legs today. I went up with the weight on my Smith machine squats and focused super hard on my form. Boy, did it make a difference! My legs were jelly by the end!
Later in the afternoon, I dragged my aunt for a noon-time run. We did about 2.5 miles and, let me tell you, it was HOT! There was very little shade on the route but I didn’t actually mind running overall. I really felt like I needed to run-right then– and didn’t want to risk getting side-tracked and missing out if I had waited. I LOVE RUNNING!
Thank goodness my parents have a pool at Tar Beach that I took full advantage of for the rest of the afternoon.
Lunch was a ham and cheese sammie on white bread (mmmmm, I haven’t had white bread in a while) with a handful of chips. I also had a salad with lettuce, tomato, carrots, and hot peppers. Yum!
Then I headed home to tackle my every growing pile of clothes and shoes. I ended up dropping 4 heaping bags of clothes and shoes at a clothing donation drop-box! (A glass of wine really helped with the tossing process, believe me!)
I am a tired girl. Tomorrow is gym and Tar Beach with my ladies. Sure to be a fun day in the sun! I also have a race Sunday with Running Club newbies like me and Hawaii a week from Monday! I must get packing!
See ya in the A.M.!
