Why? Because I need a cabin or cottage or beach house in the north in the summer. I mean, Beer Geek works from home four days a week. It would work. He could fly up every Wednesday night, work from our summer home and then fly home on Tuesday evening to be in the office for his Wednesday meetings. That sounds perfectly reasonable, right?
So, who wants to share their lottery winnings? Or family money? Or pay me a million a year to run and blog?
Guess I’m stuck in the land of hot. At least the boys and I get to run off to Wisconsin for a big chunk of August. (Sorry, Beer Geek. Remember to feed the gecko while we are gone.)
We have at least a couple of weeks every summer that look like the above. And every summer, I whine and whimper, but every summer, I survive it. I don’t like it, but I survive it.
Somehow, despite running a whopping 10 miles last week, I’m actually getting in shape and losing weight.
How, you ask?
Tina Reale’s Best Body Bootcamp. Turns out that I like having a fitness “To Do” list. She tells me what to do and I do it. And the workouts are super challenging! But that, combined with really watching what I’m eating, has my waist down to pre-kids size and my other body parts shrinking as well. And, woohoo!, I’m starting to see muscle definition in my arms.
I promise I’ll share pictures soon, but now we are off to the pool. I plan to spend my day alternating sitting in the shade with sitting up to my neck in water. Some day I’ll be a runner again…
Is it stupid hot where you are? How do you survive? Or are you one of those people who actually likes summer?
