I finally decided to take my neighbor up on his offer to use their pool;he has asked me to over many times and I always refused till the crazy heat today kicked in! I ended up doing some sun worshiping and swimming. Well, actually I can't swim,but I did bounce around and run around the pool. I think I tried every aerobic exercise that I could think of. I actually felt the burn in my legs and got my heart rate up ! Maybe someday I can learn how to actually swim . I admit that I am a bit embarrassed by being 36 years old and not able to swim. I had a great time today, and I will go back along as long as my neighbors approve. I certainly have the greatest neighbors ever! Did I mention, that he is also fixing my car for me at a discount price? Great ol' country boys, gotta love um'. I did manage to get a little blistered out in the sun. I tried to put on sunscreen, but the bottle was just not working- not good. Luckily, I don't burn easily, so this isn't a huge problem.

Here are some pics that I took poolside.

Sun Worshiping


Almost two hours later- lobestery


Having a great swim (Ah, float...)


Cuddled up in "Lion King" beach towel.



Great day, I did 200 squats, lunges,swimming, and stayed in calorie range. Speaking of calorie range, my husband and I planned on CiCi's but it was so packed that we went to Bellacino's Pizza. When they brought The pizza out, and I saw the grease and cheese, I could feel panic set in. I knew that I would be eating it, and I didn't know what to do. I did end up eating it, and yes it was GOOD! I can recall once, that my hubby and I ate this whole 16 in Pizza in one sitting (NOT PROUD), but we made sure to get a take out box today. I checked the nutrition facts on the website, and it actually wasn't THAT bad. I still managed to stay in my calorie range. Thank goodness for portion,and self control!


You can tell by the pic, this isn't a place with many healthy options. Only a few salads really.

    Great job staying in your calorie range! And definitely apply sunscreen-even if you don't burn easily, the sun is still doing skin damage. (Stepping off soapbox now!! :D)

    Sounds like a wonderful summer day. Great job staying active in this heat! Your never too old to learn to swim, and we float much better now that we would have as kids.

    Good for you!!! Love the pics by the way.

Love Bellacino's, when the kids lived here ate there quite often. Can't remember the last time, consider it next trip to Publix.

Remember to put that sunscreen on a good 20-30 minutes before you hit the outdoors AND apply it often. Hope you returned that bottle for one that works.
