Watermelon, Hotdogs, SPARKlers - Red White and Blue!

Wednesday, July 01, 2009

Ah July 4th. The firework holiday, the picnic holiday, the beachside holiday, the "you caught what on fire with a fire cracker?" holiday... The holiday where there's so many snacks and BBQs that it's truly a test of will to see if you can keep your diet in check.

A big part of keeping myself in line will be to up the cardio over the long weekend. Starting Thursday, I'll add extra time to my workouts and push myself a little bit more. Then I won't feel as bad if I have a cookie... and maybe some ice cream too. Realistically, some days you just have to celebrate and live. I just can't let it get out of hand.

Saturday will be one of my allotted drinking days for this week. Something I love doing (for all holidays): mixing a drop of food coloring with my drink (I'll be honest - usually beer). That way I stay festive.

Well, cheers to white pants, stripes and a healthy, fun weekend!
