I’m back on the wagon.
For real this time.
The last few days I haven’t been doing a well as I hoped. I haven’t worked out since last Thursday. I could have gone to the gym yesterday, but I pulled weeds and clipped the bushes and gave myself a manicure instead. That means I currently have 30 minutes banked towards my 5 hours of cardio this week… 4 ½ hours of cardio remaining to reach my goal.
That is the past, and I can’t do anything about it. But these next four days I still have control over, so tonight I am going to do a full hour of cardio and I’m going to do at least 20 minutes of weights. I am going hard and heavy on fruits, veggies, healthy grains and lots of water today.
I am keeping track on one goal though… this is my second post, so I have to blog at least 2 more times in the next 4 days and I will reach that goal. Now, I just need to start paying attention to the other 2 goals that I set!
I can do this.
I guess you can tell I had a good weekend.
The cookout was awesome, we had a great turnout. I put on my best Martha Stewart Hostess face and I had a blast. There was plenty of great food and, OMG… I forgot to tell you….
My girlfriend surprised me with a brand-new grill!
At first she was against the whole thing. She said, “I don’t want a whole bunch of people in my house.” Lol… whatever.
So Sunday morning she gets up early and says she has to run an errand. I get up after she leaves and go downstairs to start cleaning up. She gets home and we are standing in the kitchen and she starts opening the blinds facing the backyard and she is just chit chatting like nothing is up and I look up and there is a brand-new shiny charcoal grill sitting in the backyard. She is so freaking cute!
I most definitely have the best girlfriend ever!
So anyways… the cookout was awesome! Lots of friends came, we ate, we drank, and we played Taboo and Spades (boo, I hate spades)… and when everyone left there wasn’t that big of a mess!
This week is going to go by super fast because I have so much to do before we go.
I am so excited and looking forward to this weekend!
One of my best friends from high school, I’ll call her N, is flying down on Thursday night to go with us to the beach. C and I haven’t seen her for 5 years! She is in the Air force and she has been stationed overseas for most of that time. I can’t wait to see her!! It brings back so many good memories. N and C and I were attached at the hip for most of junior and senior year of high school. I also think it’s cool because my girlfriend and G get to meet her… nothing like all my worlds colliding. H has already met her, back when we were in college. Two other friends are coming too, K and R…. they are another lesbian couple that came with us to the beach last year. They all mean so much to me, so it’s nice to have them all together!
I am sooooo ready for the beach; I am in need of some major relaxing beach time.
Until then, I am going to work hard at losing these last 7 pounds.
Wish me luck!
