Im Alive and so are Yoooooou

I know, my subject line has really nothing to do with this post, but dang I love me some Scrooged. Never seen it? We may not be able to be friends anymore...kidding!! ...kinda.

A few random questions - are y'all excited for Summer?! And what are you doing to make your body READY for Summer?

I for one cannot wait for Summer. Come Summer time and its 110 degrees, Im sure I'll be singing a different tune, but for now? I am excited. Pinterest is full of great Summer BBQ ideas, I mean who thinks of this stuff?!

Want a little sweetness in your water sans the calories? GENIUS!
Lemons frozen IN ice cubes?! Seriously, this is so brilliant.

Not only does Summer mean BBQ, pool days, and adult beverages so thirst quenching, it'll make your head spin (literally), Im SOO excited for this years county fair. I love fair time. I love fair food, seeing the animals that are up for auction, SNOWCONES!!!!, and of course I love seeing my counties biggest rednecks and country folk come on out for a good time. Seriously, people think "California" and they think beaches everywhere. Not for a second would most think we have "Rednecks" or "hillbilly folk", but cmon people, we are the Wild West, duh!

I have been trying to bust my tail with workouts. Ever since I ran my halfie in March, I've been focusing more on lifting and girlfriends, its been paying off. I did this 30 day workout thing-a-ma-bob and I've leaned out and I can tell I put on some muscle. Lets face it, that skinny thing is on its way out (HALLELUJAH!) and fit is in. Just sayin...Sorry Kate Moss, but your days of reign are ova'.

Like I was asking, what are you doing to make yourself ready for Summer? I just went to last night, and found me another workout plan. If any of you wanna check it out, I'm doing Jaimie Eason's 12 week Muscle and Define program (Note: this is different than her 12 week LiveFit program - been there, done that, loved it!). And a side note, am I the only crazy who gets uber excited after writing (er, typing out) new workout plans? Seriously, it's like the first day of school for me when I walk into that gym. I see my old machines, meet some new ones and just get familiar with the new routines I'll be doing. The best feeling for this crazy woman's heart.

Since I am working towards something (Karli's tip of the day: when you workout/start a program? Give yourself a goal your working towards. Promise it'll make the workouts that much better and interesting), I need to find this Summer bikini. Besides Vickies, does anyone have any suggestions of places? Im probably gonna order from Vickies, but I'd rather go to a store and leave with it that day. Im American which means instant gratification is a major driving force. I don't wanna wait on shipping :)

So cmon ladies dont slack now! Bikini season 2012 is SO SO close.

Well as I'm in the Southern Hemisphere, it's coming up to winter here. And I can't WAIT! As I live in the sub tropics, there's really only the wet season and the dry season :-)

What was the 30 day plan you were doing again? I'm sure I remember you writing about it before.
