I Love Summer

Oh, man am I missing the beach! Morning walks along the ocean, the sand beneath my toes, the hot sun on my skin, the sound of the waves crashing, and the ocean breeze blowing through my hair...ahhhh, nothing compares. I just can't stop looking through all my pictures over and over again! I'm so obsessed with pictures.

At least the weather here is nice. It's going to be HOT this week, which is just fine with me because that means we can put our pool up. Let the floating begin! Have I ever mentioned how much I love summer??  I'm so glad the dreaded winter is over and summertime is finally here!:)

So anyway...as far as my training goes, it's been a little less structured with my hip/back issue and then being on vacation. I've still been taking it easy with training legs(as much as I hate it!), and while on vacation I just did a couple of not too strenuous full body workouts with what I was limited to at the hotel's gym. Basically I just did bodyweight squats, lat pulldowns, dips, pushups, handstand pushups and planks.

I actually did a full leg workout Saturday, and I'm happy to say that it felt pretty good. Of course I was super super sore the next day from having not done heavy back squats in so long! And my strength was way down, which I hate, but I expected it. I'm still going to stay away from deadlifts for a little while longer.

I think that now that I can train legs, I'll go back to my upper/ lower split. I seem to get good results from that type of split; however, I'm kind of wanting to switch it up and try something different....like maybe some full body workouts. I'm hoping to be able to get back to doing sprints, and maybe add in a day of CrossFit. I haven't done the strength and conditioning plan that I posted a few weeks ago yet, just because I wanted to take some time off from any intense training until my hip/back pain got better.

Well, the plan for today is to finish planting my flower pots, take Asher for a walk, do a little cleaning, maybe clean out and wash my car, and then do some reading in the hammock. I know I'm a little behind, but I just checked out The Hunger Games at the library, and I can't wait to start reading it!


  1. No worries, you will be back at 110% before no time. The pics of Florida made me miss it too. It ALWAYS sucks to leave, and I always want just one more morning to walk on the beach. :) Take care.

    1. Thanks! It's so hard for me not to go all out at the gym!! I need a trainer not to push me, but to restrain me! ha. Yeah, I miss those morning beach walks the most...I had to take one more stroll along the beach right before we left for the airport. ;)

  2. Your pics from the beach are sooo good! I wish I lived closer. At least once a week I beg my husband to move there!
    Can't wait to hear what you think of the Hunger Games book. I haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet, but may have to soon, lol.

    1. Thanks! I'm a picture takin' fool! I really wish we lived closer...we've always talked about living it Florida. Someday I hope to make that a reality. Then the beach will just be short drive away! :)
