You’re looking so good in what’s left of those blue jeans.

Well apparently all of my post titles are going to be country song lyrics now, because it’s summer and that’s just how it’s going to be. Speaking of country music, my mom and I actually just got tickets to go see Rascal Flatts and The Band Perry at the end of June. But it’s no big deal, because you guys know I chilled with The Band Perry when I went to see Ellen, so we’re basically best friends already. Totally kidding. That was all the sarcasm I have right now. And then later in August, my dad and I are going to see Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, and Eli Young Band. Now I just have to suck it up and buy tickets to Toby Keith and Kip Moore and my summer is set. But not really, because I’m super high maintenance when it comes to concerts and also want to go to all of these:

  • Jonas Brothers
  • Train/The Script
  • John Mayer
  • Backstreet Boys/Pauly D/Jesse McCartney
  • Kelly Clarkson
  • Kid Rock

WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. No wonder I’m poor. Now that we’re on the topic of concerts, want to see how creepy I am? Lady Gaga, T Swift, and Joe Jonas are all so much  more beautiful in person. Especially Joe. He better watch out if I ever meet him.

Okay, moving on. Did you all have a good Memorial Day? I sure did. My friend Tara and I went to a local parade and brought along her awesome flat Ellen to give her a little American tradition experience. Somehow we ended up in the middle of the parade, right between the boy scouts and the high school band. Whoops. We had quite a laugh over that one.

After that, I had a ton of things to catch up on. I went for a wonderful run/walk and then did 45ish minutes of strength/toning. I also did a Tara Stiles “relax” yoga routine for 30 minutes, because relaxed is the exact opposite of what I have been lately.

Then I actually had to do some work and made a bunch of client calls, made 3 new training plans, organized all the files on my computer, and applied for a few jobs. Yuck. I know I need to get a real person job eventually, so I figured I would just start looking to try to hopefully find something that doesn’t completely disgust me.

Even though I did all that stuff, I will totally admit that I stayed in my running clothes all day long. Didn’t change once. That is my life right now.

And then after a totally wonderful dinner of Jimmy John’s subs and pickles, my sister and I settled in with some cranberry wine to watch THE BACHELORETTE FINALLY!!!! I am fully aware that is a totally stupid and fake show, but it’s my favorite so leave me alone. And I know Brooke is just as excited, if not more, as I am. I’m not going to recap it, because some of you probably didn’t watch it yet, but I’m totally talking about freaking everything on Wednesday, so please don’t come here if you don’t want to know what happened :) Monday nights are the best.

Also, please watch this, because I promise it will make you smile.

Were you super productive or super lazy yesterday? :p

Lots of playing & Pressed Juicery cleanse.

I am exhausted. Yesterday was quite the day. It was absolutely beautiful here in Michigan, so the girls and I decided to spend the whole day outside.

I cannot tell you the last time when I spent a significant amount of time outside literally playing. We packed up a picnic and took it to the park, played on the playground, fed the ducks, went home and played on the tree house, and literally continued to play for 3 more hours.

I felt old. I kid you not, there was one point where I was on the ground and went to stand up and my knee cramped up and I had to grasp the wall to get up. Like, really? Am I 90?

image

Then I went to the gym to train and proceeded to run for 45 minutes and for some ridiculous reason decide to do sprint training. Once again, why? I think because I knew I was starting the Pressed Juicery cleanse today and wanted to sweat it out one time before I really have to tone my workouts down for the next 3 days.

I am so excited to get my shipment of juices this morning! The cleanse I am doing is the summer 3-day cleanse. These are the juices I will be drinking every day:

  • Greens 2: kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, celery, apple, lemon
  • Citrus 2: pineapple, apple, lemon, mint
  • Roots 3: beet, apple, lemon, ginger
  • Citrus 4: cucumber, pineapple, lemon, coconut h2o, aloe vera
  • Greens 3: kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, celery, apple, lemon, ginger
  • Vanilla almond: almonds, dates, vanilla bean, sea salt, filtered water
  • aloe vera h2o
  • chlorophyll h2o

I honestly think the hardest part for me will be not drinking alcohol :x Is that pathetic? I think so, but hopefully this cleanse will make me not want wine so much every night. I am excited to prove to myself that I actually have a little bit of self-control, which I’m sure will go a long way beyond the actual cleanse itself. I will be doing a full recap as the days go on, but for now I want to talk about So You Think You Can Dance.

Okay, I know Alex watches it, but for anyone out there who isn’t watching this show, WHY THE HELL NOT?! This show seriously makes my summer so much better. I think I cry at every episode, but that’s okay. I am just so happy for all those young people that actually have talent and are working their asses off. The end.

I have nothing else to say except I gotta go drink my juice and hopefully not turn into a raging lunatic in the next 3 days. Wish me luck!
