How is it mid-July already?! I think it's the business of the summer season that makes it feel like it always flies by so fast. Here's of glimpse of what we've managed to squeeze into just the month of July so far...
No doubt that all the summer fun has gotten us a little behind in other areas of life. The laundry is piled up 3 stories high. Yard work has taken a backseat. I haven't updated this blog since the end of June. Exercise has even fallen to the wayside. But ya know what? I'm beyond ok with all of that. I've been making a conscious effort to relax and go with the flow this summer, and I have to say it's been awesome.
When I have found time to get a workout in here and there, I've opted for either outdoor runs or fast-paced circuit workouts that I can finish in half an hour or less. This morning before Avery and Brandon woke up, I threw together a quick core circuit using my 10 pound medicine ball. It took me about 20 minutes but really did get my abs burning. Although this kind of workout is something I'd normally tack on to the end of a run, it was perfect for the type of get-up-and go morning before another day of summer fun. We are off to the farmer's market this morning, and then going for a swim later this afternoon. Happy Saturday everyone!
