Let them roam free

Yesterday was a struggle against the nibbles. Not sure why...had to stop myself from snacking...gave in a bit (had to "test" a piece of the rice krispie cake I made for the camping trip of course...) but tried to keep it together. I spent the evening doing the odd things needed to get ready for our upcoming trip to another music festival. I'm gonna rock my bikini and enjoy time with friends in the sun. 2 of my favourite artists Shpongle and Infected Mushroom will be playing, as well as a lot of my friends. My friend Mel is in charge of one of the stages again and we'll be there to help out and enjoy...it will be a good time I think. There's a nice river and beach too...Forecast looks sunny - I'm looking forward to it. I'm starting to feel like myself again with all this time off...it's really wonderful. When we get back I can go visit my dad for almost a week. Here's hoping I don't fall too far behind...

Since I know it may be my last workout for the week (I may be able to sneak a home one in tomorrow AM before we leave, I'm not sure) I came in and had a good solid workout...workout #2 (the one with the deadlifts) and some ab stuff ended with 30 minutes of sweaty biking at resistance 5. I also did 2 sets of 10 burpees -I'm really proud of myself for that. I've been trying to add in burpees here and there and I've worked my way up from just a few to being able to do 2 sets of 10 in a row...all guy style pushups too. I'm hoping to add a third set of 10 by the end of the summer. They're such a great overall exercise...and I've finally built up a it of muscle so I can actually do more than 1 or two with good form :) Progress feels good.

In my infinite sleepiness this AM I forgot to pack my bra. Yes...classy. After waiting for my workout tank to dry out I can (yech) wear it under my Tshirt today...I can't get away with free girls today with the shirt I packed...you can see the straps and it's not exactly what I'd like, but can't wear my labcoat everywhere :). Whenever I don't pack my stuff the night before I end up forgetting something. Usually it's not this...um...necessary...!

Have a great day everyone. What are your plans for the rest of the summer??

Mmmm! Infected Mushrooms! Senior year of high school I was so excited about being a senior and matching outfits with my cheerleading crew that, on the first day of school, I forgot to wear my bra. I could get away with it back them. But today? Not so much. It's an ugly scene when I go shirtless. Wait, what here we talking about??

Sounds like it's going to be a fun time!
This may be TMI, but I went braless A LOT during my first pregnancy. I think I unconsciously knew it would be the last time I could get away with it, lol!
Have a great trip!
