Don't you wish...
Tuesday, May 29, 2012
Everyone had the summertime off work? And we just played and spent our days lying on the beach and swimming and playing frizbee and eating watermelons? Going for runs on cool mornings and spending actual time preparing your amazing lunch to eat on your balcony? Don't you wish you could spend DAYS having good quality time with your friends? And then turn into a hermit and spend days catching up on all the good books out there? Don't you wish that you could go to summer concerts outside, sipping on light drinks while watching the stars? Don't you wish you could be free?
Oh the joys of a 9-5 job... I seriously beleive everyone should get July and August off work. Heck, throw in June and have of September too. People need BREAKS to be themselves without the controls of 'real life' holding them down! its energizing to take time for yourself to remind you of who you really are!
Anyways.. enough of the wishing! Yesterday was a great day! I ran for 20 mins straight which i wasnt supposed to do till Friday.. but I felt so great yesterday on the treadmill that i just went for it and am so happy I did! I also did some strength training on my arms, but they dont feel too sore today so am wondering if I did enough? We also went to the dog park after work so walked around even more... I stayed within calorie range and made some pretty good choices while allowing myself a small treat! Did you guys know that a McDonald's kiddie cone is only 45 calories and 1 gram of fat?? I'm pretty sure I can fit one in every day :) great way to get some calcium if you ask me!
Today, I'm going back to the gym to do 30 mins of cardio and 15-20 of strength training for my gams! We're going to look at flowers for the wedding again after work, and I'd like to catch up on some tanning time in the backyard while the finace cooks me a nice meal! I think I'll take in a nice book too... today's a great day!
Wedding stuff is coming along! Only 16.5 weeks to go!! That's enough time to kick 33 pounds to the curb ;)
