i don't know why i do this to myself - i was checking the forecast for next week and it doesn't look pretty... i know, i know - its still vacation but when you're going to the beach AND camping, rain sort of puts a damper on everything... plus, it makes packing even more difficult and i'm bad enough as it is - i tend to pack too much but maybe that's because i'm a girl and i like having options (tank top or tshirt?)... anyway, i started making piles of all my stuff last night like clothes, beach towels, sunscreen, and toiletries and if i forget something, i'll be fine... sometimes roughing it can be fun (like no hairdryer!) but if i really needed something, the local grocery store is only a few miles away... :o)

i'm going to pick more blueberries after work with my mom, so i have them for next week... i'm not sure how much longer they'll be in season around here so i'm going to take advantage as best i can... we also may grab dinner at 5 guys, which is a local hamburger chain that pride themselves on serving homemade burgers, hotdogs, and french fries... yea, not the most healthy of choices but i figured as of 5:00 - i'm officially on vacation and i've only heard good things about this place... :o)

today will be another busy one so it should go by fast... and it will also be my last treadmill workout til i get back so i'll have to make it a good one... on wednesday, i did 40 minutes of flats/hills - talk about challenging! i may try and do 4 miles today so we'll see how that goes - anything above 3.5 is an improvement for me and if i can crank out 5 miles by the end of the summer, maybe i'll try doing an 8K race... either way, i can telling the running is helping my weightloss because these capris i have on today are huge... :o)

time for my
weekly top 5 so enjoy... :o)

—do you know how to
store salad greens?
—learn how to run less for more results
—read about a woman who lost weight too fast for weight watchers (WTF?!?!)
—feeling a bit down? here are some body image boosters you can try
—don't know what to make on the 4th? check out this list of favorites

i'll try and post something over the weekend but if for some reason i don't - i hope you all have a happy and safe fourth of july... i'll talk to you when i get back...

happy friday...

Hi - Love your posts. Where do you find the time to find all of the great links? I loved too that you recognized that we're not all single and childless, but do agree that everybody, regardless of status has their own set of obstacles to eating and exercise.

I'm gonna add your link to my blog at http://journeytothin-candace.blogspot.com/. Let me know if you'd rather I remove it.

Cheers,
Candace

I love Five Guys. No, it's not healthy but it is in peanut oil and my attitude is this: If I'm going to have something like french fries, why not the best? I consider them the best. (And the small burger is sufficient too.)

You must be in the NoVa area. I'm down in C'ville but the Five Guys are cropping up everywhere. There's one over in the Valley in Woodstock of all places.

Have fun with the blueberries--can you freeze some of them for later? And I hope you don't get any rain. That would be a bummer when camping. Have fun!

Sending positive vibes for a sunny holiday. Have a great time at the beach.

Hope you have a GREAT trip! Enjoy yourself!
I hate packing for camping...I always way over pack, even when we are just going for the night! A girl needs options!
Can't wait to hear about your weekend next week!

i've never had five guys but my friends rave about it. i've never really been a cheeseburger kind of girl but i hear they are the best. i wonder if they have grilled chicken sandwiches there?

have fun on your trip! and your bachelorette/wedding showers, etc. whenever they may be! i can't believe there are so many parties and celebrations for one event. haha i'm new to this wedding business i guess.

Amazing but true, you can buy a healthy burger if you know where to go... we don't have 5 Guys here though. French fries are NEVER healthy, boo hoo. Hope you finally get the packing sorted, and have fun on holiday!
