It’s freakin’ Friday.
And I’m happy.
Ready for the weekend. Ready for Peter Pan to be over (opening night is NEXT Thursday!). Ready to have some family time this weekend (and a sister shopping trip today!).
1) Someone called Clara “Carla” yesterday.
At first I was like “Carla”??? Then I remembered one of my most favorite bloggers and I smiled a little. Clara – you are now Carla.
2) I’m running a 5k tomorrow. With a bum heel. Don’t call me Carla. Call me stupid.
3) In a 7 day period, I’ve flung both toothpaste and Chipotle Beanitos in my eye. Re-read that sentence. Outloud. NOW call me stupid.
Summer Bucket List:
In true Janetha fashion, she created a really cool post last week with her Summer Bucket List. And in true Lindsay fashion, I stole the idea and typed up a post of my own (British accent blogging too! That’s how you know I’m enjoying writing the post. Oh, to be a fly on my wall!)
This Summer Bucket List was super easy to come up with, as most of my lists are. If I accomplish all of the items, great. If not, I’ll just beat myself up over it during the Fall and feel really depressed.
Let’s break it down:
1. Go to the lake.
Lake people are cool.
And I want to be cool. (Don’t I LOOK cool in that picture?!?) So more lake time for Lindsay.
2. Finish fitmixer Bootcamp.
I signed up for the fitmixer Bootcamp aiming for two things: to try their product line (which I LOVE and have talked about before) and to spark some fitness creativity that I had lost. This 12-week program has done just that! I’m finding new moves and new motivation! Even the weekly conference calls are fun and informative. Thank you, Alicia, Robin and Candace! (Be sure to read Alicia’s guest post on meals and moves!)
3. Plan 1 date night per week.
He needs date nights. They don’t even have to cost any money. In fact, that’s my preference – to sit on the couch and watch Glee or Madmen. #boringbutawesome
4. Can beans and pickle okra.
I showed you guys how to do this last year. My family cans crops every year – it’s what I’ve grown up around – hard work but very rewarding.
5. Visit Tina in Atlanta.
Tina and I have been trying to get together ever since Blend! Our husbands are both computer guys, we have kids the same age and we, well, “get” each other!
This is the summer for T & A L!!
6. Get ACE Group Fitness Certification.
I have my NASM-CPT and LOVE LOVE LOVE the acknowledgement that comes with that certification. As you guys already know, I teach several group fitness classes a week. Certification in this area just makes sense. I’m going through ACE because I believe it’s a well rounded and credible program.
7. Ride bikes.
My parents have bikes that we can borrow. We just need to find some kiddie seats for the backs and hit the road!
8. Roadtrip to Polyface Farms.
Speaking of road, Katy and I are taking a road trip to Polyface farms in July!!! Polyface was the farm featured in the documentary, Food Inc. (a MUST see – streaming on Netflix!). We’re taking the kids, hitting the road and making a mini-vacation out of it! Complete with meeting up with some VA bloggers (hello, Sarah!). Can hardly wait – anyone know of a good place to stay in Charlottesville?
9. Take Henry and Clara swimming.
I work at a gym with a HUGE pool and I’ve yet to take Henry and Clara swimming. Just need to pick a day when Travis can come – taking two wild toddlers who don’t know how to swim to the pool sounds…just call me stupid.
10. Go to Belle Chere.
Belle Chere is this really fun, very vibrant, 3-day street festival in Asheville, NC! I haven’t been in YEARS. In fact, the last time was the summer my dad caught me smoking clove cigarettes. But that’s a story for a different day…
11. Train Katy.
That’s Katy. She wants to become a semi-professional boxer. (re-read that sentence) And she’s asked me for help.
It’s all so very MTV “Made”. I just couldn’t refuse.
I’ll keep you posted – I’m thinking of doing before/during/after shots and having her write some guest posts.
12. Read 3 books.
13. Take 5 complete rest days.
My CNS NEEDS a reboot. And my left heel needs to rest as well (I’m actually considering a cortisone shot at this point).
5 days of rest is the minimum. It’s going to be quite a challenge for me mentally. But I neeeeeed it.
Seesh…it’s gonna be one busy summer.
QUESTION: What’s one thing on your Summer To-Do???
