Sorry guys! I feel like a bad blogger because I haven't updated in awhile.
Like Laura I feel off balance. I haven't been on a good schedule to get everything I need to get done, including meal plans and cooking. There have been some pretty lax meals around here that are definitely not blog-worthy!
I'm finishing up my last 2 weeks of this semester, which has been my most grueling so far. Once that's behind me I have faith it will look up from there.
I am also leaving in about three weeks to go to my parents' for this summer for about six weeks. As with any trip there is always the preparation and planning stress, but because this one is for so long I feel more than the usual amount. I'm also nervous about not seeing Johnny for such a long time and missing him. We've never been apart this long, ever - even after our first meeting! (We met online and after meeting in real life once I moved in with him.)
Unfortunately I haven't worked out since last Wednesday, either. My goal for the Summer Challenge was to try and move more every day. I have moved more in general and am seeing results, but I need to step it up. With food I am very good at tripping and picking myself up to start the next day great again. But for some reason I'm not good at picking myself back up to exercise. I always keep calendars for my progress and every time I look back it was a short trip of a few days that I let turn into me stopping exercise for good. This is a bad habit and one I hope to break as much as it is a challenge for me.
So, anyways that's where I'm at. Just wanted to check in and let you know I didn't fall off the face of the Earth.
Today I'm going grocery shopping and have dinner planned. While in the kitchen I'm also going to make a big whey-free lasagna for Johnny while I'm gone. I make the whole thing, let it cool, and then cut it into single portions to wrap separately for the freezer. I know he's capable of feeding himself while I'm out of town, I just feel bad leaving him without home cooked food I know he loves.
I'll leave you with some pics Johnny took of me last Wednesday, during our 5 mile bike ride! That is the longest I can remember riding in a really long time!
