Today I...

Morning, ladies! How are y'all doing today? I'm dealing with the dreaded post vacation blues and am trying not to fall asleep at my desk. Our trip to Colorado was amazing and I can't wait to finish up my recap for y'all this week. There was NO way I was making time for blogging while on vacation, so when I saw *this* post on Rebecca's blog I knew I had to use it for my post vacation Monday. There's something so fun about relieving a month in a day, right?

Before we get started, I have to give a HUGE THANK YOU SHOUT OUT to my lovely guest posters. Ladies, y'all had amazing posts and I am so thankful to have you as my friends. Thanks for being FABULOUS! < 3

Alright, let's dive into my June 2015!

Today I. . .

1. Participated in a pretty uncomfortable phone conversation.

2. Am hurting like crazy. Oh my goodness, our gym work out KILLED ME!

3. Tried two new recipes [avocado fries and coconut chicken] and was pleasantly surprised in the result.

4.Was bummed when a fun plan for the weekend didn't workout because of bad websites.

5. Am so tired!

6. 90% of my day was spent on the couch watching sports and I didn't hate it.

7. Got laundry done and a lil tan at the pool. #greatsunday

8. Tonight I watched the USA beat Australia in the WWC and it was an awesome experience. #USA!

9. Attended the Royal Ballet's performance of 'Don Quixote' at the Kennedy Center with Babyspice. #awesomebirthdaypresent #amazingperformace #iloveballet

10. Rode Babs into DC for our kickball game. #cheerstomyfristroadride

11. Felt amazing in my yoga class because my flexibility is getting better. #yogi #namaste

12. Went out on a Friday night [shocking I know] for a good friend's birthday dinner. #rockerchicoutfit
13. Practiced kickball, road my bike, got a tan, used my swag swam laps and watched tv.

14. Looked like a hippy and crashed Babyspice's church brunch. #thankssissy

15. Realized I need to step up my new recipe game.

16. Had my last hair color and cut with my amazing stylist. I'm so sad she is moving :(!

17. Did something extremely outside my comfort zone and signed up for BODYPUMP instructor training, holy crap! #onlyhavetendaystolearneverything #didibiteoffmorethanicanchew #scaredpoopless

18. Am extremely nervous about my training and have read my two tracks 100 times.

19. Packed everything up for our tournament this weekend. #beprepared

20. Found that homemade pizza, wine and menchies in a tornado warning helps ease the sting of a bad day ending loss. #myhusbandisamazing #spygame

21. Feel like I let my team down and came to realization that I am a good kickball player but not a great one.

22. Am so exhausted it isn't even funny, my body hurts and I don't want to be at work.

23. Ate one of the most delicious burgers of my life. #yummy

24. Went out for dinner [again] and watched the finals of the CWS. #gohoos

25. Wanted to flip out on a coworker. #learnmanners #stopbeingannoying

26. Listened to my BODYPUMP track music a gobzillion times. #mylipsaremovin

27. Jumped into the unknown and attended training and then drove to DC for a retirment cruise. I know my body is going to hate me tomorrow, but you do this for family and friends that are family. #peoplebeforesleep

28. Feel so ecstatic beacuse I got a 3/3 in my BODYPUMP training and Mama B's party went off without a hitch. I love when everything comes together and am so happy I didn't miss out on the fun.

29. Am a walking zombie. Everything in my body [especially my shoulders] is sore. #norestontheweekend

30. Watched the USA women beat Germany in the #WWC semifinal! #USA

Hope y'all have a great Monday. < 3

I can’t keep up with how amazing your trip looks. I’ve focused mostly on the yummy food options you’ve had this weekend. I always hate getting back from a vacation, and always need a vacation from my vacation.
