Treacherous workout and what I'm reading this week

Happy Friday y'all!  It's the last day of July.  Holy poo!

Luckily I woke up yesterday feeling better than the day before.  The Mr had to take a bath to loosen his muscles but that's because he's tight as a stretched rubbah band.  HA!  So after not feeling so broken, last night we went for a paddle in a new spot.  Well, same lake but new launch with some islands and we thought it'd be a leisurely paddle.  The current and chop in the winds provided some hard paddling for the Mr. so I would paddle and wait for him to catch up.  We couldn't get much relief until we got into a marsh area but then we didn't paddle much so my first hour sucked calorie wise.  Then it was kind of a long paddle on calm waters but when it was time to head back he left me in the dust a bit and I was getting tossed around.  You had wind blowing from one direction, some weird chop from another and then if a boat went by you'd get wake from another side.  I was waiting for a vortex to open up and swallow me or something.  It was one weird session and I'll be honest I was glad when it was over.  

But enough of our water escapades, let's get to...

Why this woman's incredibly honest weight loss picture is important  (I feel sad she felt she had to share something she was not necessarily comfortable with just to stop the haters.  If people thought it wasn't the same person, so what?  I have a friend who people say the same about her comp pics and she showed her face, it's clearly her and people still say it's not the same person.  Why?  Because people can be judgmental douches.)

We're still trying to decide if we're going on a road trip or sticking around town tomorrow.  Sunday we have a paddleboard lesson with our friend so hopefully she'll enjoy it.

What are you guys getting into this weekend?

  1. That paddle was brutal in spots but then we'd get to some really beautiful and unique areas that I had no idea existed in our neck of the woods. It was a nice reward to get to that first marsh area after being thrown around a little on the choppy waves on the way in. I only wish the way back had been a little easier on you cause I could tell the waves, even though they should have been pushing, were reducing your paddle strokes in half. I got a little lucky there because my board was staying on top of the waves more so I was getting boosted a little more than expected for a bit there.

  2. I finally have a 3 day weekend, so I am going to put my phone on auto reject for the workplace and do whatever feels right at the time.

  3. Today is my b-day so I skedaddled out of work a little early to enjoy some extra time with my pups. Mom is coming out tomorrow so I'm very excited. As sad as it is, I'm just so thankful I get to spend this last birthday with her. I've decided I'm treating myself and just doing some light cleaning in the kitchen and washing underwear and socks only. Everything else can wait until Monday. I know, I'm a rebel. =o) Enjoy your weekend!!!!

  4. Thanks for the links, will have to check a few of them out :)
