It seems I am in a season of short trips, which is pretty amazing. Granted, it means scrambling to get everything done in between trips, but that’s ok. It’s worth it. This week was full of fun, like a boat day and a birthday celebration! Let’s check it out.
- Cardio: 5.15 miles, walking
- Strength: Biceps workout, 20 minutes
It was nice having a full Sunday after returning from Orlando, and I took advantage. I started with my morning walk.
Then I followed with some bicep work. Yay, strength!
For the rest of the day, we just did the regular: laundry, cleaning, and restocking groceries. Adulting is never super fun.
- Cardio: 4.22 miles, running + 4.94 miles, walking
- Strength: Shoulder workout, 20 minutes
I wish I could impart just how hot and humid things are down here. Yes, Florida summers are rough but it’s just extra difficult right now. It feels like any amount of miles is a victory.
- Cardio: 4.8 miles, walking
- Strength: Leg Day, 20 minutes
Up and out again.
It was a slide work day, followed by an evening meeting. Meetings at night are tough – it always makes it harder for me to get to sleep that night.
- Cardio: 5 miles, running + 3.26 miles, walking
Ugh. Another hot one.
This was a big day for me. I had a huge meeting/training session with a new client. It was pretty informative and I’m very excited for the future.
- Cardio: 4.03 miles, walking
I had to get out super early and I had a lot on my mind. But, I got it done.
A had been asking for a trip to Bass Pro Shops with his friend, and so off we went. They had a great time shopping and I took them to lunch.
That evening, we had a date night at the soft open for a new lounge in Jacksonville: The RL Lounge. It’s attached to the Beyond King Tut exhibit, so as an added treat, we got to walk through the experience a second time.
We had fun trying some new cocktails and getting a nearly private viewing of the immersive show. Loved it.
- Cardio: 3.37 miles, running + 4 miles, walking
Another brutal day. We did what we could.
I got cleaned up and had another Zoom call. And then it was time to pack for my weekend at Meghan’s for her birthday! It was a bit of a stressful drive, but I got there in time for happy hour and ice cream.
- Cardio: 1 miles, walking
Boat day! The big plan for the weekend was to take a pontoon on the Chain of Lakes with Meghan’s friends! What a day! We had the boat from 10AM-6PM, and there was a full itinerary with stops for sandbars, lunch, drinks, and chilling. There were mimosas, jello shots, and snacks onboard, and frozen boat drinks on land. It was fabulous.
Of course, we were all absolutely exhausted at the end of the ride, so we said our goodbyes, grabbed some quesadillas for dinner and called it a night.
Thoughts + Goals
It’s definitely been nice to get a change of scenery and do some exciting things over the last few weeks. And it’s going to continue through the rest of the summer. Travel is my favorite.
I’m feeling a bit of a burst of creativity, which makes me super happy, too. It’s good to feel focused, and like you’re moving in a good direction. I’m glad to be in that position.
