Just finished with some fasted biking and will lift later…didn’t get in any workout yesterday.
Life is so good! I’m very excited for September in many ways…but have this question running through my brain recently… “What is it that you really WANT?”
I’m going to work on answering that for myself this September!
Fitness wise, My goals for the next 3 months are just to be HEALTHY and very CONSISTENT in my workouts. I’ve been researching and RE-learning much about how the thyroid and insulin hormones work to regulate our bodies for a SEMINAR I’m teaching on Sept. 11th…it’s VERY TRUE that hormones affect EVERYTHING in our body! If we operate blindly without that realization we will NOT have the best results.
Mexico was a blast, Travis and I both really needed the time to “CHILL”, we needed to just escape.
The weather was very nice, a big mish-mosh but overall NICE most of the time. We had 1 day where the sun was full blast and we made it a “TOTAL BEACH DAY”…it was fun to get in the water with the waves. Thankfully my toe handled most all of what we did great. It continues to improve daily. We worked out all but 2 days of the trip, played some ping pong, danced a bit and played pool volleyball too!
The most fun times were the conversations we had– we just really enjoy spending time together!! We met a few interesting people too… One guy was from England, named Gram…we saw him spend HOURS trying to learn to windsurf. He would not give up! It was inspirational and fun to see him get after it at the age of 46 It inspired both Travis and I to keep trying NEW things in our life.
The kids and Grandma seemed very happy to see us, it’s so fun to come home to people that love you. Last night we all went to Gunner’s first game of the season. He played mostly linebacker but also played some blocking back on offense. He’s very strong and much bigger than most of the kids on the field. He had some very nice hits and played very aggressive. It was fun to see!
Tonight the twins are going off to sleep overs, Gunner is going to the HS football game and Gracie’s got a friend coming over. There’s always action going on with 4 kids…They are awesome!
Time for me to get rolling on my to do’s…
P.S. finally updated my measurements that I hurriedly took before we left on our trip. Can see the increase in bodyfat, mostly “Belly fat”. Overall though, I am OVER IT…having the time to just CHILL in Mexico this past week really made me understand how blessed I truly am!
