Summer Days – Mamavation Monday

Summer is going so much faster than winter does. We haven’t even set the trampoline, and we are already in July. I have noticed how much quitter it is in social media and I can only hope that is because you are spending some quality time outside. We will be taking a road trip soon, and I am seriously looking forward to it. I will spend 5 days with with my family AND my parents, so … hmm … yeah, I am not sure how that will go. On a separate note – I will get to see Janice @fitnesscheerleader, since I will be close to her hometown.

We are trying to spend plenty of time outside. Yesterday activity included kids riding the bicycles and us trying to catch up with them. Yes, I had to jog a little and in 90F I would consider it a good workout.

Oh yeah, I lost 2 lb.

You have no idea how big that is – I haven’t lost a pound in months – VERY EXCITED!!!!

One more thing – I signed up for Venus De Miles 25 mile road ride. I am terrified and excited at the same time

  9. Congrats on the weight loss!! The summer is going by so quickly. I feel like we’ve been busy doing nothing; I can’t really think of anything substantial that I’ve accomplished all summer.
