I have one major goal for the week….

To be up in the gym just workin on my fitness!
*wish me luck*
I want to go at least 5 days this week.
I went last Thursday and I hadn’t been in over a month.
I used to be able to easily run 3-4 miles.
I couldn’t even run half a mile last Thursday! (I was a little embarrassed)
MOTIVATION - It’s already summer, enough said!
I would love to have a banging bod for myself and my man ;) but I’ll work with what I’ve got and see what I can accomplish!

Today starts a new week so I’ll start myself with much lower expectations and hopefully be able to work my way back up. B has decided to take up boxing as his new thing. He will be training with a guy that trains some Minnesota Wild hockey players. B starts coaching hockey in 2 weeks so he wants to build up his endurance quickly, after having a month off. He is quite excited to start and thinks I should join him! Ha! Since I have a hard time catching my breath after running half a mile I figured I should wait a few weeks to attempt some hard core personal boxing training. I don’t want to make a fool of myself and throw up or pass out while this guy pushes me to do things I don’t think I’m capable of! Ha!

Changing topics, It’s a 4 day week and I’m so stinking glad!! I also might have the benefit of working some shorter hours! I'm pumped for the 4th of July weekend, bbqs and fireworks! B has to work the entire weekend is the only bad/sad part :( I feel like we miss doing so many fun weekend couple type things together but I'll keep my attitude positive and just be happy about the time we do get to spend together.

my weekend….

Saturday I went to 2 graduation parties with the fam. They were both for girls that grew up in our neighborhood. In between the parties the fam played some yard games and after we swam and played some intense pool volley ball games. B joined us after work and then we hung out with my brother and his fiancé after that pool madness. We did some fireworks in the street and had a couple beverages. Sunday I laid out with my mom and sis. We had our regular family dinner night that B joined us for after his almost 12 hour work day. He showed up with a gift for our nephew, D, and a gift for my Mom, he is such a sweetheart! It was a Perfect weekend!
I will post pics tomorrow; my camera cord must be at home, BOO!

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!! :)

p.s. thank you for all the sweet comments on our MB!! Ya’ll are too nice!!

That is adorable that he brought a present for both your nephew and your Mom. How sweet of him to head over after working such a long day.

I am very excited about the fourth of July also, I might have run over to Old Navy to pick up a flag shirt for Roman Noodle. Will you be taking Gus Gus with you to the 4th party?
