I have finally started to get my groove back and it feels great.
It’s been a while since I posted and I have been terrible about taking photos, but I’ll play along anyway.
The Boss and I have been taking Lola on lots of walks.
We found a small creek near our walking trail and we have been taking her down there and letting her play around. She still isn’t very sure about it.
Speaking of The Boss, we picked up her 7th grade schedule this week. She is so excited about starting back to school. I am not excited, but it does make me happy to see her so happy. I’ve been making a list of all of the things that I want to do while she is in school to keep myself busy.
Things like getting my state plates up on the wall finally!
I finished all of the templates and decided where I want them all to go. All that’s left now is to buy all the plate hangers and start getting those babies up on the wall. And then of course, I need to find the 13 that I am still missing. I guess I need to go antique shopping again soon!
I got a secret letter in the mail this week.
There was no return address and it wasn’t signed but it has made my entire week. Someone knew that I needed a pick me up and they took the time to send this to me. The craziest thing is, I could think of so many people I know who would do something like this. That says a lot about the people I choose to spend my time with, doesn’t it?
I’ve been hitting up the gym daily and my poor body is hating it and loving it at the same time. I am so sore! I curse every time I have to walk up the stairs. I am also doing the 30 day squat challenge with my friend S. She is far ahead of me, but I didn’t want to wait until next month to do it, so I just jumped in on the 10th of the month.
My bum is so sore.
Oh! I finally went running again! Wednesday morning I slogged through four very humid and hot miles, but I did it. It felt great to get back out there and I think I want to push on through to 5 on Saturday.
When I got home, I collapsed on the kitchen floor and caught a great picture of Lola giving me kisses and checking on me.
Yesterday was probably the best day I have had in a long time.
I spent hours at the pool with S and our girls. We just about finished off two bottles of Sangria between us and then we went for ice cream. I swear my abs hurt so much from laughing yesterday.
Last night, I went out with our friends T & A to play trivia and eat wings.
A has to be the messiest wing eater ever.
The best part of the night was when Mr. Challenge ended up joining us. We didn’t win, but we weren’t last place, and it was so much fun. I can’t wait to do that again.
Today was leg day at the gym and yes, I still came home and did my squats. I may need to call someone for help to get off of the toilet later.
Thanks for sticking around while I was absent.
Do you ever play trivia at bars?
Have you done a 30 day challenge? Do you have a favorite kind of challenge? I think next month we are doing planks which scares the bejeezes out of me.
