|Brett Gardner making a true catch|
Wow, last week flew by! I actually had hopes of being online more but, alas, all I could really do was pop in on Twitter here and there.
Fourth of July started out as a simple BBQ with some neighbors then...30 people later, we had ourselves a PARTY! It was crazy. I kept getting texts asking if I minded if they brought someone--or a family.LOL
I'm one of those anal planners so this really rocked my world, but all turned out great in the end and the hubby and I were praised as fantastic hosts. (Um, because we are)
I was so worried Sox would get trampled or not react well to the crowd but he was SUPER and I think loved all the company. (and attention)
On the writing front, I did not get as much done as I wanted, but I'm still making good progress. My target is to sub this thing to my editor by the end of the month. (fingers crossed)
In other news, I've lost ten pounds.
HOW? By running three days a week, keeping up with P90x routines, and a free app on my IPhone called "My Fitness Pal".
I. LOVE. THIS. APP!!!
You plug in all your profile info and then it sets a target calorie goal for you. It's basically just calorie counting.
If you exercise that day, you can plug that in too and then you can eat more. (Which is what I do)
You add in your weekly weight and see your progress. Plus, the BEST thing is you can look up the calories for almost everything. Even if I go out to eat, they have a lot of restaurant meals programmed in already, which is very convenient.
Check it out!
In puppy news, Sox goes to his first "puppy orientation" class this Wednesday. It's a free one. Then after that, I'm going to sign him up for some classes that my vet recommended. But he's been a good boy and is growing like a weed. (although by dog standards he's still pretty petite) He's three months now!
That's it for me. Summer is usually slow but for some reason I'm so busy that I rarely have time to read, which makes me really sad. :(
So what's going on with you? Read anything good lately?
