It’s a great day to be alive

Happy Monday morning to you all! 

The sun is shining once again and summer is finally here.  I hope that everyone had a chance to take advantage of the gorgeous weather this weekend.  I definitely did just that.

Great news!  Today I begin the 30 miles in 30 days challenge that Jess @ Dairy Free Betty threw out to us last week.  The way it works is like this.  Every time we walk, rollerblade, bike or run (amongst other physically active activities), we document our progress and check in our results on Jessica’s blog or Facebook Page.  It’s a friendly challenge and a cool way to inspire each other to get off our butts and get moving.   You can also find more details on her Facebook page by clicking here

So I am going to try my best at completing the 30 miles in 30 days, although it may be a little tough since I’m going for surgery to have my tonsils and adenoids removed this Friday.  Once I’m feeling a little more mobile, I’m sure I can take longer walks again.  I just don’t want to overdo it while my body is recovering.  It just means that I’m going to have to kick some butt this week to try and make up the lost weeks after surgery.  Think I can do it?

This is also the last week for the Get Sexy Challenge hosted by my boot camp instructor Jason Hart.  It started just 11 short weeks ago and he challenged us to not only transform our bodies, but our lives as well.  Since I started classes with Jason about 14 weeks ago, I have noticed weight loss, fat loss, way more energy, my posture has improved and I just feel happier.  We will be doing my final weigh-in this Thursday and I’m hoping to post a before and after picture of myself to show you how much progress I have made. I am excited to see my final numbers and I’m definitely looking more toned and can finally begin to see my upper abs.   Who knew they were there?  Smile

So Sunday afternoon we went for a walk.  We went out to take in the beautiful views and scenery on one of our nature trails about 20 minutes south of here.  I must say it was rather hot out and Buster sure got hot walking on the fine sand along parts of the walk.  We had a ton of fun though.  I love where I live !








Hope everyone has a wonderful start to their week.  It’s the last week of July 2011, which means there is only one month of summer left.  Crazy!
