Wednesday morning I went with my husband for the early bird swim special. Left the house at....
We came out of the gym to a gorgeous sunrise.
Wednesday night my inlaws took us out for pizza to help them celebrate their 51st wedding anniversary!!!
Apparently our relationship bush got jealous of all the pink flower pictures I took the other day. Its white flowers turned pretty much all pink in a matter of a couple of days.
here and here. She was here visiting family and invited Millie and I for a bit of a puppy reunion.
Cream and butter based soup with crawfish and andouille served over rice.") It was so delicious - turns out etouffe is an ultimate comfort food. The sandwich was also very tasty (A New Orleans tradition! Ham, salami, provel cheese & olive spread, toasted and served on a seeded bun.) And because we are so health conscious, we fed most of the chips to the dogs. So that was a win :)
I have a quick June wrap up and then it is time for a day of adventure with my honey. Our ladies group is doing a summer challenge - weight loss and mileage. For the weight loss we are tracking how much the group can lose over the months of June, July and August. I am not sure what the group total is yet for June, but I contributed 6 pounds to the pot. Honestly, I had hope for more, but there will be no complaining. Those kind of months add up. My mileage contribution was 35.84 (we have a mileage conversion for strength training and swimming - the point is to get us moving). I got smoked by several of the ladies - they are amazing!! One other unofficial "goal" I had, I aced. About mid-May I wondered aloud to my husband if I could go until my birthday without eating fast food - about 6 weeks. I didn't mention it because I didn't want it to become a big deal. Sometimes the more I try to avoid something the more I obsess about it. Well, I did it. On June 29 I did have Jimmy Johns and my husband isn't convinced it is not fast food....it's not fast - it is freaky fast! In all seriousness, a sub-type sandwich is not what I think of when I think fast food - I am thinking greasy burgers, fries, etc. Anyway, I did it and it really wasn't difficult :)
Looking ahead to July...I have a goal in mind to double my June mileage. I am already working on it - logged a 2 mile walk this morning. I want to beat my 6 pound loss, but I know I have some challenges ahead because we just found out we are going on a spontaneous vacation to Denver. A former co-worker offered her place for free while she is out of town. How could we resist? We are planning plenty of walking to enjoy the gorgeous scenery (I've never seen it in person). Fingers crossed the altitude doesn't slow us down too much. Hopefully, that will offset some of those vacation food treats. I am super excited about the trip :)
How do you handle vacations treats?
