When the going gets tough …

I’ve decided since the going is getting tough it’s time to pack my bags and head on vacation.  Tomorrow we leave for our annual family reunion vacation.  Nothing like camping in the HOT Kansas wheatfields surrounded by a bunch of family, farmers and tractors!  Seriously, I know everyone is jealous!  BBQ, beer and homemade pie will be the perfect diet right before weigh in … or NOT!  I am going to mark this month up as a complete bust before the weigh-in even gets here.  BUT … I will be home in time to weigh-in repack my bags and head off for a Nashville GIRLS TRIP!!  Now you SHOULD be Jealous … I’ll be rocking my morning workouts at the Gaylord Opryland Fitness Center!  I’ve got my workout schedule ready for August and I’ve made a promise to myself … I’m going to do my best to BUST MY BUNS the WHOLE month of August!

Losing ...

Wish I could say I was losing weight … but instead I’m losing at this dieting/workout battle.  What made me think or want to diet in the summer???  I love summer and all the fun and joys that come with it.  Hanging out with friends and family, backyard BBQ’s, baseball, eating out, beer, boating, ice cream, ugh … which none of this makes dieting easy.  The good news is I love my early morning runs and our family bike rides I just need to find me some motivation to get back on track before this month ends in a gain.

Burgers, Brats and a Good ol' Sunburn ..

Not a great start to my new month. Burgers and Brats have been our dinner for the past 5 days. BBQ's, Holidays and Dieting are an unhealthy combination.  Add in a good ol' sunburn and it makes weight loss success a losing battle.   Now that the 4th of July festivities are behind me and my sunburn is not glowing RED.  I just might attempt to put on a sports bra and go for a run.
