I can certainly relate to the weird tan lines... I get that from the running and walking too. Arms are 3 shades darker than everything else, foot to the ankle is pale, ankle to knee is tan, and everything else is beige... silly.

Thanks, Twist! You should see my tan line! I was wearing shorts and boots with hiking socks, so I have 6-inch wide stripes around each calf. Sweet! LOL

Quite possibly the worst burn I've ever had, and I've had quite a few unfortunately. They still hurt if rubbed and I've started a second round of peeling. Yuck!

Today was my eat-out-have-some-junk day... which I allow myself for one meal once a week.. so not everything moved up, but it was intentional so that's ok!

Time to catch up on posting!

08.13: 30 minutes yoga, 15 minutes bike
08.14: 9 hours hiking (Mt. Whitney!)
08.18: 30 minutes yoga
08.19: 30 minutes bike

I got the worst sunburn on my legs hiking Whitney on Friday. Then my legs swelled and I lost my ankles. Yesterday in Chicago, the sunburn turned into hundreds of tiny blisters. Gross! But this morning, my ankles finally showed up! Still a bit big, but definitely ankles. Yeah!

Well I finished watching season 1 of heroes. I liked it although Parkman sort of gets on my nerves. Now I have to find out from my friend if she has season 2 or if I have to put this on netflix :-) Of course, this did put a dent in my dog walking time, so I'll need to be careful with such an increase in my tv consumption!!

I've been up since 1:30 am PDT, but still wanted to get some time in at the gym. I headed over to the 4:30 restorative yoga class only to find out the gym closed at 3:00 for an employee picnic. Geesh!

Twist, how's Heroes Season I coming along?

Alright, time to post! Same goals as before.

As of 8/06:

My comparative stats from June to July are as follows:

No fried/fast food: 77% in June, 80% in July
Walk the dogs daily: 50% in June 46% in July (double d'oh!)
5 Fruit & Veg daily: 83% in June, 87% in July
No candy at work: 90% in June, 74% in July (oops)
No Soda: 77% in June, 83% in July

So quality food intake is improving... but my puppies... the poor things. And that was prorated for the days I was gone!

I just have to get out of this, I'll do it later rut. (and I'm already off to a bad start in August.. *sigh*)
