This week, we’re starting to tally up our miles until the first day of summer. As of this morning, I am at 22.5 miles for #100bySummer. My workouts are pretty much on-pace with the #BikiniSeries schedule for the week. Links to all workouts can be found in this post
. Oh, and I reached a number on the scale this week that I haven’t seen in a very long time, thanks to this Bikini Series. The numbers crept up a little over the weekend, but the downward trend seems to be sticking. I just really want to get into the “healthy weight” zone. Right now, I just
fall into the “overweight” category, but I’m so close that I can taste it.
Holy sore-ness! I’ve got a lower back and shoulder thing going on this week that are pestering me, but not restricting my workouts in any way. I won’t do any moves that will worsen my aches, but I can still run and do pretty much everything. I just look like a 90-year-old lady when I try to bend at the waist and get up from my chair. I’m a tummy sleeper, so I’ve been sleeping with a pillow under my pelvis and that really helps take the pressure off my lower back. I may or may not be secretly using Ben-Gay. I’m not! I kid…
Our weekend was spent almost entirely outside due to the amazing weather we’re having in Wisconsin finally! I did some yard work, studied for my NASM exam in a lawn chair, took a 5k run around the neighborhood, accidentally crashed a cookout, went on a ‘coon hunt in the middle of the city, picked up veggie plants for the garden, and took a scooter ride. Peanut did some of this stuff with us, but he had a special sleepover and fishing trip of his own to attend. I’m feeling a cold coming on, but this warm summery weather sure seems to be tempering the effects.
Here’s our little neighborhood friend. Pretty docile for a wild animal. Hubster live-trapped and relocated her. Peanut has a weird fear of raccoons of all things, but he was all-too-eager to help his Da hunt her down.
How excited are you for the upcoming three-day weekend? I am! I am! We always hit up the city-wide rummage sales in the town where my husband grew up and put flowers on his grandpa’s grave while we’re there. It’s kinda a tradition now. We’re going to try and find this place again. And in two weekends, we’re heading to Chicago for a little family trip, centered around my NASM personal trainer workshop. This summer is going to be so good…
What trips do you have planned already for the summer?
