Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 329

Well, I already blogged about the weekend, so not much to say about that. Friday I finished paying for my paddle board and get to take it home! Woohoo! So excited to finally have a paddle board. It's a great one. I'm excited to use it a lot. Just wish I had somewhere to store it at my house. Looks like I will have to store it at my parents house... right by my Christmas tree. Ha ha. One day I will have a garage and room for all of my adult things that don't fit into a shared single living town house. One day...

Friday I hung out with  my family after picking up my paddle board. Lots of time with the family while Jamie is in town... well, as much time as I can with a full time job. It's nice to have family in town.

My place has been very empty. Mackenzie is gone, Alicia has been in and out and Leslie has been gone for like a month. It's been nice, almost like having my own place. It has stayed so clean which makes me so happy. I know it won't last, but I'm going to enjoy it while it does last.

I HATE listening to people slurp crunch and eat. I hear it ALL day at work from everyone around me. I swear a couple people around me eat ALL DAY! It makes me have bad feelings towards them. Hence why I have that disorder I posted about earlier. I even have headphones. I just have to blast them louder to block out all of the noise. Then people get bugged that they call my name and I can't hear them at all. I ran into my 2nd work bestie (Brock) and we were talking about this. He gets bugged too and says a lot of people around him eat a lot. Then get this story he told me... I still can't believe this. He went into the bathroom once and the guy in the stall next to him letting go a loud crap... he OPENS A BAG OF CHIPS and starts eating while he is taking a dump! What? You can't wait for 5 minutes when you are done going to the bathroom to eat? Is that the point where you realize you have an eating problem? That you can't even stop eating to go to the bathroom? I couldn't believe it when Brock told me. My goodness.

Saturday I went running before meeting up with Becca to go paddle boarding. I have been trying really hard to follow my trainers plan and get my cardio in on Saturday even though I never want to. I usually jog 3 miles when I wake up. It is starting to get too hot though... so I will probably have to start going to the work gym in the morning. I'm trying thought. Plus I did paddle boarding. So that was extra! The drive home I decided to drive through the canyon instead of going back to the freeway to get home. American Fork Canyon and Provo Canyon connect... so I thought... why not. It's a beautiful drive. So I did. It was great. Loved it. That night was the Strawberry Day's Rodeo, which I usually go to, but didn't have anyone to go with this year. Sad day. Oh well.

Sunday was Father's day. So I of course went to Sunday dinner and we had a great little celebration for my awesome dad. He is awesome. I sure love him a lot. I really enjoy my family day. I'm always bummed when I have to miss it. Not just because the food is awesome.

Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday I didn't do anything except for work and go to thy gym on my lunch break and then go work out with my personal trainer after work. For some reason, this week has been really hard. I have been really sore! Why would week 7 be so hard? I thought it was supposed to be getting easier. ha ha. I'm going to blame it on the heat. It has been REALLY hot!

Speaking of my trainer... I weighed and measured again. The stats are in. After 6 weeks with my trainer, I have lost 16 lbs, 3% body fat, down 4 inches around my belly, down 3 inches around my waist, Hips, legs & arms down an 1 1/2 inches in each. So I am happy with the progress I am making! I of course still have a long way to go, but it's nice to see progress. Not too many people have really noticed it on me yet.... maybe when I lose 20 lbs people will start noticing. Either way... I'm feeling good!

Tonight I went over to my friend Amber's house. It had been a while since we hung out, so we decided to go on a jeep ride and watch the sunset in the mountains. We got a little bit of a late start, so we just made it to Deer Creek up Provo Canyon, but it was beautiful and it was fun to catch up with her. After we went back to her house and just chatted and I finally met her best friend Kerr, so we all hung out. It was fun. 

My friend Kyle posted a picture of us on our hike at Buffalo Peak on Instagram and it got featured in the Daily Harold newspaper. Pretty cool huh?I guess that is all I got for this week!

The fact that you are sore after a workout just means your trainer is doing a good job :) So, you can rest assured that you are not wasting your money. I still get sore everytime after I do a good workout. Way to stick to it Tracy! Sounds like you are doing awesome :)

That picture is awesome and your hair looks amazing. I don't know how it can look that good after a hike.

Oh, and I would NEVER eat on the toilet. Unless I was hiding in the bathroom (not actually going to the bathroom) so that I didn't have to share whatever I was eating with my kids. I might have done that once before.
