It's been an interesting month, and it's not over yet...

The first 2 weeks of my training there was a lot of working out, and mostly healthy eating. But this week, our schedule is more annoying. Meaning we only get one hour for lunch (and I'm used to at least 1.5hrs and working out during lunch), and we don't get out until 5pm. It's annoying. The most annoying part is the fact that it's a total waste of my time. I sit there, work for maybe 30 min, at the end I stand up and brief for 1 min, and then wait to go home. Thankfully I brought my textbook and my "Paleo Diet" book today, so there was some good reading. I'm feeling a little "re-paleo'd" which is good since my PT test is likely to be Aug 10th, and I return from my "vacation" on Aug 8th. So I gotta be strong, stay skinny, and keep working out!

Thankfully I did a practice test today, I will be walking the 1 mile instead of running the 1.5miles because my jaw pain is just too nuts. Anyway, I walked in 11:35, did 25 pushups, and 44 situps. A little disappointed in my situps, but honestly I haven't been practicing them. I am super proud of my pushups!

It is that TOM... which is throwing my eating off-- for example I had like 700 calories of CHOCOLATE today at lunch :/

Anyway. Just checking in. On Friday I'm likely to take some pictures, it'll be close to the end of the month. We'll see if there's any improvement- but the clothes will be a little different since I'm not at home.

I am excited for our vacation time. Saturday I fly into Vegas and I get to see a good friend Stacey who just became a new mom a couple months ago... and then spend some time with my Aunt and her fiance' (and his daughter), and then the kid and I head to Reno! We'll catch up with Leah (& hopefully Mariko) in Sacramento area, then my GIRL Salbatross! and then a set of my hanai parents (Aunt Sharon and Uncle Bob) until we fly out Sun morning. It's going to be crazy, but hopefully fun!

    It is SO HARD when the schedule is tweaked so much... and traveling... don't get me started on that! (still in "recovery" from that darn cruise!!) ;-)
    And as I've noted before, you are actually so lucky that you have to be "in shape" for work for the extra added incentive!
    All in all, sounds like a great summer full of fun and seeing people you love. So no matter what, be sure to ENJOY!!
