Indiana may need to build an ARK

Well, the rain has stopped and the sun is finally out. It's about time it feels like SUMMER. I may get to swim today:) We've only got to swim 2x this summer due to the terrible weather.
I got to have lunch w/ a good friend Katie and her boys on the Ohio river last week. The girls had fun. One of my high schools friends was in from Florida, so we went to visit her. Her entire family was home so the kids played, fished, picked berries, got to pet some horses and make smore's by the campfire. Did I mention I had 1 or 2 also!!!

Kenny and I finally got a weekend together w/ Jen, Brian, Lishia and some of Brian's family at Lake Erie. This was a NON-working weekend and I had a blast. It was nice to get away. Kenny and I have never been there before.

For the first time, all of us sat down and had a drink, cheesburger and fries. This never happens because one of us is always dieting for a show. My husband was actually the one that noticed it. Kenny said, "you're all eating"!!!! It is so nice to eat and have fun and NOT worry about it. Lishia made a statement that made alot of sense. We are in our off-season and we think we look fat, but the difference is that we know how to get it off in 8-12 weeks where others don't. We actually look half way decent compare to the rest of the women out there. This is where women have issues, they think we look like we do at a show, year round-and we can't. I've had a few people tell me, wow your puttin on weight-and I just say YES and I love it. The only way to make changes to your body is to put on weight while continuing to workout in your off-season. Anyways, my point was that I had a blast and ate ALOT!!!!

This past week I had a client stay w/ me from Texas. We trained and she even got a sprint workout at the track-she didn't like me after that:) We went to Wal-Mart and read labels. I think she learned alot about sodium and true Texan food. Izabella loved having her stay, she went home w/ lots of pictures that Izabella drew-even on her workout sheets. Lisa-it was nice having ya and I hope your not too sore today.
Well it's almost noon and I promised the girls a walk in the stroller. So I better sign off till next week.

Yes you gals never cease to amaze me. Just when I think you are all super human you prove me right again. You are so right when you always talk about balance and that even means just having fun and letting go, as long as we remember how to get back.
I have been training hard and meals have been 70% up to about 3 weeks ago. I did not go crazy and eat fries etc. but did have wine and some treats now and then.
Yip it all went to my belly, but only 2 pounds up, but thanks to you all (sounds American don't it, ehe ????, hahah) I have the tools to get it back off. My challenge is, it took only 3 weeks to put on lets see if I can get it off in 3 weeks. Thanks for reminding me that it is ok to relax once in a while as long a I remember how to get it back. It really is a life style and a journey and every journey has it's bumps and detours that's how we really appreciate where we are heading.
Thanks for sending me on this journey and pointing me in the right direction.
