I have about a month of summer vacation left, and I plan to eek all the excitement out of these last weeks as possible. I haven’t been to the pool in over a week, and I miss it, so I plan on doing much more swimming while I still have the time. In fact, I really want to focus on trying one new fitness activity per week: using a spinning app I bought to get on a spin bike at the gym and give it a whirl, going to a Zumba class for the first time since surgery, getting back into Hot Hula in August, trying one of the weight training classes (like BodyPump), and maybe even Body Combat, if I’m feeling really adventurous.
I know this is supposed to be about summer, but today I had a meeting with some of the administrators from school, and I was able to see my schedule for next year. I’m happy to report that I once again have a 3rd period prep, which means that I have the last period of my “A” day off. Just like last year, I plan on leaving early enough so that I can get to the gym before the masses.
Tomorrow my sister and I are headed to SeaScape Resort with the doggies. I love going there, because it’s a semi-private beach that allows dogs to go off leash. Plus, it’s absolutely gorgeous there. I’m looking forward to a long walk in the sand with the waves lapping my feet. I also love watching the dogs run far ahead and then come back; they get so tired by the time we’re through. It should be a fun day.
I just started watching Friday Night Lights, and I’m in the middle of quite a marathon. I love this show! I’ve always loved football, and of course I enjoy the whole high school aspect, plus I love the sense of school pride the show displays. I’m just beginning Season 2, and I’m enjoying the character development.
I recently started reading the behemoth 11/23/63 by Stephen King. It’s 849 pages, which is really daunting because I have it in it’s full, heavy hardcover glory. I’ve never been a huge fan of Stephen King’s horror, but I love his other fiction, like Shawshank Redemption and The Body, which is the novella that Stand By Me is based on. I’m enjoying the writing, and I’m really intrigued by the topic. I’ll keep you posted.
