My Roll Hit a Bump!

So I've been extremely active this week with the walking and the water aerobics and was feeling very proud of myself AND seeing some results. Yes, my arms do actually look a little more tones as do my legs. I will have very little shame walking on the beach next weekend!

Someone forgot to inform my uterus of my progress.

Seriously, I was all set for some fun Fourth of July swimming action and now...well, I can't. I am not one of those women who - during their period - run on the beach in a white bathing suit so that I can get to my horse faster so that I can ride. I know! Weird, right?? Oh, well, I guess there goes the dream of ever starring in a tampon commercial!

So, there I was on a roll with everything and now I am too busy popping Advil like Pez to do anything. Well not anything, I did manage to get through a two mile Walk Away the Pounds walk. Frank was outside changing the oil in the car while I did it and when he came in he saw me here at the computer but noticed that I was sweaty and he's like "How fast are you typing??" Gotta love that man!

So, I'll be pool-less for a few days. Dang it! I'll have to walk again. The beauty of the water aerobics is no sweating! I hate to sweat! But I'll have to deal with it for a few days. The cool thing is that even while in Florida, I will have access to a pool every day so I should be able to stay on track. The key is to not indulge in too much "home cooking" while with both sets of parents! Dad has already promised me homemade ravioli (although, after he promised them to ME alone, he then took it back and promised half of them to my Uncle!) and my mother in law has promised her world-famous meatballs! Are we noticing a trend here? Italian much?

I hope that all of you have a fabulous Fourth of July. Stay safe!
