When the can bites, when the wasp stings

Hey hey hey 😀 Hope you’re all having a great day!

In all honesty, the pilot and I are ready to go to bed and start Tuesday because this Monday has been a little insane. After I stayed up most of the night changing the bedding and cleaning dog vomit, the pilot was late to work because he couldn’t find his wallet, the dogs would NOT let me nap because they’d rather randomly bark –they didn’t get a walk today which explains everything, and I just got a phone call from the pilot who gashed his hand open taking our recycling to base (an aluminum can cut him). He walked to the side of the recycling center to rinse his hand off with the hose and a wasp flew over and stung him. For real?!?

On days like this, I remind myself of the good things.

A good bfast:


(Cantaloupe and a saturn peach)

A kinda good Larabar (I like the coconut cream pie and key lime flavors muuuuuch more)


A sweaty and wonderful spin class (with working AC! Wahoooo!) with a super sweet playlist:

Fire Burning  4:03  Sean Kingston   

Love Drunk    3:47    Boys Like Girls   
Knock You Down    5:26    Keri Hilson, Kanye West & Ne-Yo

I Don’t Care    3:39    Fall Out Boy  

Beggin’    3:38    Madcon       
Cry for You (Ronnie Maze Club Mix)    4:26    Nicki Bliss    The Biggest Loser Workout Mix: Top 40 Hits, Vol. 2 (2008 Fall Season)   
I Gotta Feeling    4:49    Black Eyed Peas     
America’s Suitehearts    3:34    Fall Out Boy   
Drowning (Face Down) [Radio Edit]    3:38    Saving Abel   
Explosive    3:11    Bond   
Sandstorm    3:45    Darude       
Show Me What I’m Looking for    4:00    Carolina Liar  

And a glorious salad beast:


Spinach, mixed greens, a yellow bell pepper, beefsteak tomato, 1/2 avocado, goat gouda, little vidalia onion, raw apple cider vinger, sea salt, pepper and red chili flakes.

And chocolate.. because it really does make everything better


I’ve got two training appointments and a Zumba class and am thinking about going to the gym to take Pilates and get a little Zen action in my life.

For the Summer Shape Up girls, this week is the last week of the challenge and we’ll be repeating Week 1. If you’ve been lifting and doing your cardio this entire time, try upping the weights a little this week to make things more challenging, or tack on a few extra reps. If you have a Summer Shape Up success story, please send it my way so I can include it in next week’s re-cap!

I’m off to train and to call the pilot to see if he needs stitches :/

I’ll see ya tonight <3

    OH NO!! I'm praying that The Pilot's stings will go away soon and not be painful – tell him to hang in there!!

    And YOU hang in there with the rest of your activities for the day 🙂
