I Love Eating Clean in the Summer!

I love summer!! It’s easy to get outside because the weather is just euphoric. Warmth of the sun on my cheeks, sweet smells and that dang ice cream truck music! Okay so most of summer is great but I swear the ice cream truck driver must be insane to be able to listen to that annoying jingle all day long. Yesterday I went to the gym in the morning with my mom. Who knew playing tag on one foot was such a great exercise. I came home and got ready to go to the Dr. I’ve been having what I thought was acid reflux. Go to find out my esophagus is malfunctioning. Too bad I can’t just replace it. :) So I get home from the Dr. and my sister wants to go running. She is an amazing athlete. Plays soccer for Brigham Young University. Running with her is tough. I mean I felt like a child when she kept jogging back to me then running back ahead. That slave driver made me run 4 miles and then do abs at the gym and this all after my intense hour session at 6:30 in the morning!! Then she throws me a swimming suit, tiny bikini nonetheless and tells me we are going swimming. I’m not swimming suit ready at all! That pushed me re-evaluate how much energy I put into getting in shape. Who wants to be nervous every time they see a swimming suit? Who wants to be self-conscious about how fast they move or which way they turn in order to make themselves not look fatter then they already are? I want to be able to pick up anything and feel confident that I will look good. I’ve lost 5 pounds doing MonaVie RVL  and eating clean but I'm not yet satisfied. I want muscle and definition. So along with cardio and diet I’m going to start lifting with the big boys. I probably won’t wear cut offs, grunt and slam my weights on the ground but I plan on picking up some iron and getting some muscles.

Also check out the recipes tab at the top. I just added a nice cool summer salad.
