Happy first day of Summer!! (I have a summer gripe, which I’ll get to in a minute). I’m definitely enjoying this to celebrate the first day of summer:
AND, the work week is almost over! Even more so for me because I leave for Dallas on Friday for a wedding!
I’m so excited to see some law school friends, explore Dallas, have some Texas BBQ, and most importantly, celebrate one of my favorite couples!
Workout recap time!
This morning, I found workout inspiration from Alyssa in the form of this workout. Full disclosure, I used 8-pound weights because they were the heaviest I had, but it was still a great workout. It was definitely challenging and I loved that it was a pure strength circuit.
Because I had some extra time (I woke up before my alarm so my workout started early), so also did a few cardio exercises (butt kicks, high knees, punches, jumping jacks, etc) for a bit until my knees started hurting, 7ish minutes of abs, and 10ish minutes of additional strength exercises. It was a random, varied workout, but it all worked.
Tomorrow I’m back to running, I think. I want to do this treadmill workout from Lindsay, so I’ll keep you posted.
So, my summer gripe. Seriously, this is the only thing I don’t like about like about summer. Otherwise, summer is the greatest thing ever.
This is going to make me seem like a lazy couch potato (who leads a charmed life if this is my complaint), but I’m willing to risk it — I had the television schedule in the summer.
I know, I know, what a lame gripe. But seriously, one of my favorite things is coming home from work, having dinner with James, and catching up on our shows on the DVR. However, in the summer, our DVR is pretty much empty.
We have only 4 summer shows! Actually, we have two shows and I have two that James tolerates when I turn them on.
But that’s it! Seriously, what is there to do all evening if there are no shows to watch? Are there any summer shows I’m missing out on?
Side note #1: We do LOVE Burn Notice, but unfortunately, we got behind a few seasons ago, so we can’t watch this season until we catch up.
Side note #2: We watch Dexter, but we don’t get Showtime, so we have to wait for the DVD. So once that comes out in August, Dexter will be added to our summer show list.
If you have any recommendations, I’m open to suggestions. (Staci, I’m looking at you — I have convinced James that we need to catch up on Breaking Bad though!).
But I guess if my biggest complaint is the lack of television to make me lazy, things are going pretty well, right?
Well, off to read a little (a fortunate consequence of no tv). Have a wonderful evening!
