Tomorrow we leave for Italy. I am so, so, so, so excited! I am packing tonight because although we have an evening flight, I don't want to be stressed tomorrow. Tomorrow I think I may actually head out to Barnes and Noble to pick up a few books for summer reading...
This week I was definitely living it up--summer style! Late nights, sleepovers, pool, movies. It was a nice little preview of what's to come after I return from vacation. When I return I will be starting my job as a camp counselor, but that's not all day, I still will have my summer nights!
Do you want a good laugh? Picture me hobbling around with a grimace on my face while my friend just laughs at me for my misfortune...We decided to do this little 10 minute workout. It's 1 minute each of 7 different ab workouts and then 3 sets of 25 jump squats/10 pushups. I thought it sounded like a piece of cake so I went ahead and tried it on Wednesday. My goodness! I could hardly walk the next day! Then, for some bizarre reason, I did it again on Thursday, and then again today! I am incredibly sore. Usually it only takes a day to recover from things like this, but I don't remember ever being this sore from a workout... It's probably a combination of the fact that I have hardly worked out all spring and also because I did it 3 days in a row with no day off.
Anyway, despite having issues walking upstairs/downstairs (downstairs is the worst!), sitting on the toilet, sitting in chairs, sitting on the couch, getting up from a chair, getting up from the couch, and probably a whole lot of other things, I feel muscles under my squish! teehee ;) This little workout reminded me that I definitely want to be super active this summer (and not just active as in busy, active as in fit).
Also, I rode in my new saddle today. It was a dream except for the fact that my stirrup leathers hadn't arrived yet so I used nasty, crispy, crunchy ones from a school saddle. My butt just makes it because I took the risk in buying a half size smaller than usual. Anyway, this saddle is extra motivation to well maybe not have such a large behind! haha Oh, and because life just works that way, my beautiful new leathers arrived today in the mail...after I went riding... HAHA
I have to get packing now...I'm not sure what the computer situation will be in Italy, but I probably won't be able to post anything. I will definitely return with great pictures, so get ready! Arrivederci!
