I have decided that I am going to start blogging about my workouts to keep me accountable to myself. I haven't really had time to actually blog about fun stuff, and I hope to do so soon. Summertime has me out in the sun when it isn't 102 degrees and really humid reading books and soaking up the sun.

I have read quite a few books this summer and I currently can't put down "The Help" Such a great book and I can't wait to see the movie when it comes out. I hope that it is just as good as the book.

This morning my gym partner had to be at the gym at 6 instead of our normal 6:30 am. She is crazy enough to be entertaining 4 kids today...Only one of which belongs to her. Crazy lady!

Last night I decided that I would run to the gym this morning and I texted that idea to Tanja before I could take it back. I Google mapped the distance from my house to the gym and I got 1.7 miles...Totally doable as a morning warm-up before I got to the gym. At 5:50 this morning I strapped on my running shoes, my Nike+ app and Iphone and off I went. I quickly realized that those 1.7 miles really was 2.79 miles, and it isn't as cool outside as one would hope it to be at 6am in Minnesota.

Running with a destination in mind, and a friend waiting for you and cheering you on to get there safe makes running a lot easier. I ran a pretty steady 9:30 mile for almost 3 miles which is pretty good for me. I just started really liking running about a month or 2 ago and I am gearing up to run a 10K in September.

Now it is back to the daily grind. I wasn't feeling well on Friday so I took a sick day to recoup which means that Monday is going to be even busier!


Time - Or Lack Of

Blogging has taken a back burner lately and I think that it is for a few different reasons...None of which are really that exciting but I feel the need to explain myself and try to get back in my blogging groove.

1. It is finally summertime in Minnesota. There is sunshine rays to catch and soak into my body - a girl's gotta get her tan on and many of my free hours are spent outside in the sun.

2. I have a new workout plan. Every morning of the week is dedicated to fitness. I have been working out since May and couldn't be happier. I ran a 5K on July 4th and have a 10K on the books for Sept. I have found that I love working out and have a great workout partner that goes to the gym with me every morning.

3. I feel great. Life has been good and I love spending time with my family and friends. Busy days and nights don't leave much time for blogging.

4. Now that I think about it - I don't think my blogging will improve until after Sept. I am going back to Cali 3 times in August and September and I am SOO excited to get to spend time with friends and family and celebrate the weddings of 3 amazing people. I am sad that I don't get to go to 2 other weddings (one was last weekend and one is this weekend) but a girl only has so much time off and so many airline miles available...right? Ughh I wish that I had TIME and more Money but don't we all?

That's all for now, Lunch is calling my name and Molly (who still continues to poop on my desk) and Stan need attention.
