Summer Is Finally Here!

by Tammy on May 31, 2017

I am so happy that summer has finally arrived–at least unofficially. Right now it is 75° and it was sunny until about a half an hour ago. Dan, Ben, and I went out early this morning and did day two of our Couch to 10K training while it was still brilliantly clear and sunny. I can’t remember if I mentioned here that I decided to take running up again. I didn’t think Dan would be able to participate because his hip bothers him, but he wanted to try and so far it has gone well for him. We are taking it very slowly though–walking for five minutes, running one, and then walking for a minute and a half with a five minute cool down in the span of half an hour. So we essentially run for about seven or eight out of thirty minutes right now. Gotta start somewhere though, right?

I am feeling very positive right now and I love it. I think it’s a combination of being done with work and school, applying for the teaching licensure program (which I should be hearing about soon since I’ve completed all of the requirements and they are now just waiting for the results of my background check, which I know has been completed because I could view my results throughout the process), exercising, and eating healthfully. Oh, and of course the weather improving. I tend to get pretty bummed in the winter. I cannot even explain to people how cold I feel all winter. It has always been tough for me to warm up, but this past winter seemed even worse and I am guessing it’s because I lost so much weight. I really could do without winter, and hopefully soon I will be able to!

Dan and I are getting ready to head to the gym and then I think we are planning to take our bikes out for a short jaunt around the neighborhood. I rode my bike on the trainer just a few times in the past couple of months and he hasn’t ridden at all, so I am sure both our rear ends will feel it tomorrow.

Anyway, I just thought I’d check in and say hello. I will visit blogs this evening. :-)

I am planning on getting active too. Especially since we have been eating crazy here in Vegas! Happy that you are happy! Hugs!
