Lazy Days of summer = boring treadmill runs

I am really lucky blessed to have great parents,who live so close and have an outdoor swimming pool! Since I have been on summer vacation and have a limited amount of time to be in Michigan before I leave for Georgia, I have been spending a lot of time at home.. Look at my sweet Candy bear, I miss her! She is slowly going deaf and is losing her eye sight. It's really sad.. She can barely hear me call her name, but she still is so adorable and lovable. 








I have been spending a lot of time in the pool and even more time catching up on some great summer reads. I have a lot of book reviews in the works for the upcoming posts, so stay tuned if you are looking for great books! My sister and I, bought new swimming floats to get our tan on and enjoy some great books.

Since being on medication, I have been getting more sunburn than usual. I have been putting on a lot of sunscreen to ward off sunburn, so I have to remember to keep re-applying ever couple of hours. I am looking for a cute floppy hat to keep my face and nose from burning.. Most of them look stupid. Hopefully, I can find a cute one! Any recommendations on where I can get one?


My husband and I went to the Y this evening to get a run in on the treadmill and it totally STUNK!! I dread hate running on a treadmill. I would rather run 5 miles outside, than run 1 mile on the treadmill. I disregard the treadmill so much, it is so boring! I could barely survive two miles on the treadmill! I am going for another treadmill run Thursday. My husband doesn't mind the treadmill, so I am trying to be more open to the idea of running on it.. I know it is better for my runs and it makes me faster, I just wish I could run longer distances on it. No amount of music or T.V. show can keep me distracted.. Running outside is my thing.

Speaking of running, do you own a Garmin Forerunner? I have never used one of these handy devices, but everyone I read has one of these things. I don't mind using a map online and using a good ole fashion watch to time my mileage, but I wonder if I would improve my time by having one? They are so darn expensive too!

I am also in the process of working up a marathon schedule. Any schedules or books you recommend? I cannot wait for Disney Marathon. Both my husband and I are so nervous !!

Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going well!



What are the books are your summer reading list??

I love that picture of the dog! So so cute! And how fun to just relax and read with your sister at your parent's pool! Seems like you are having a great time! =) If you are looking for reading suggestions, I honestly don't read too much, except for the bible, but I read "The glass castle" and absolutely fell in love with it!
Have a great day!

I haven't heard of "The Glass Castle." That sounds good! I love the Bible.. What's your favorite book of the Bible?
