I Miss You Dearly

Okay so it’s been almost THREE weeks since my last post… I’ve been slacking. I miss this so much!! I feel like I haven’t really had anything interesting to talk about. Summer has been off to a pretty boring start.

I did go to an Arts Festival in Wilkes Barre about 2 weeks ago with my mom and grandmother! I’m not a big art person, but it was a beautiful day and there were a lot of beautiful things to see! (All of the food vendors smelled amazing also!)

Saw this painting and thought of my girl Danielle! She lovessss butterflies!

I have given up on the Dukan diet. I wasn’t seeing results, and I was so sick of protein. I’m just gonna stick to the balanced diet & exercise strategy πŸ˜‰

One thing I am happy about is my new found love for running. The other day I was on the treadmill at the gym and I got the strong urge to run. I usually walk uphill on the treadmill and rarely ever run. I’m really bad at running. I was a dancer my whole life and I run on my toes. But when I decided to run the other day, I couldn’t stop! I wasn’t getting tired, my legs weren’t hurting, and my breathing was right on track. I ended up alternating running & walking uphill for a total of 3.4 miles. This is pretty big for me! So I’m going to keep up with this and see what happens πŸ™‚

I worked yesterday so I didn’t make it to the gym. These past couple days at work have been extremely stressful so I took a long walk last night to breathe and destress.

As much as living in the mountains is not my favorite thing, I do enjoy a nice, peaceful walk on dirt roads every now and then πŸ™‚

Today the skies are beeee-youuu-teaaa-full!!!

I love green leaves against bright blue skies! So pretty πŸ™‚

It’s not as hot as it was the past couple days. It’s actually kinda chilly with the wind!!

The rest of my day will consist of going to the gym and picking up my aunt at the airport! She’s coming up for the week from Florida! I’m hoping she takes me back with her when she leaves next week πŸ˜‰

I can’t wait to catch up on everyone’s blogs tonight!!!!! Have a great Thursday night!

Playing Catch-Up

It’s only been a few days but it feels like FOREVER since I’ve written. I’ve just been so caught up in the nice weather that we’ve been having πŸ™‚ The last two days have been AMAZING! It’s been in the high 70’s and sunny and thunderstorming and perfect! Finals are next week and I should be studying, but how can I resist this rare weather? πŸ˜›

On Monday Laura and I decided to bar hop all afternoon! We met up with our friends, Bo and Ed, and had a few drinks. The only thing missing was the beach πŸ˜› (I’m a beach bum if you couldn’t tell.. love everything about it! I could go on and on.. I’ll save that for another day haha)

Yesterday wasn’t as sunny but it was still warm. After class I went upstairs to hang out with Danielle. She has a balcony so we pretty much hung out up there all day. We took a few adventures to places including Target, the liquor store, and the puppy place! The puppies were ADORABLE! We had fun just hanging out with them for a little bit.. makes me really want a puppy πŸ™‚

Today two of my classes were cancelled so I only had my 8 am. Afterwards I went to the gym. Holy hot!Β It was so hot and humid in there. I was sweating like a mother.

This is my favorite place to go when I want to get my cardio in. This mini-gym is in the natatorium and it overlooks the pools. It’s always a plus when I work out at the same time as the mens swimming team practice πŸ˜‰

Today I have to get work done. It’s overcast so I’m not distracted by the sun which is a good thing! I have so many fun things planned for the rest of the week so I need to try and accomplish some school related things. Booo haha

Hope everyone is having a great week! Halfway done!!

What is your favorite type of cardio workout?
