Every little thing helps right?

For the next 2 1/2 weeks I am taking the stairs at work. I work on the 5th floor.  By the time I get to the 4th floor I have to slow down and trudge up the last flight and when I get to the 5th floor door I have to pause to catch my breath.  It ain't easy.

confession: ok I just slipped up and took the elevator a minute ago, but it was because I was carrying a big plate of food and a drink back up to my desk and didn't want to trip up the stairs and end up wearing my lunch!

I'm also doing this:
Every night.  In addition to my regular weight training (because this workout is seriously lacking arm stuff!) and extra running (I have to run at least 10 minutes, but usually do 20-40).

I hope it makes some kind of difference before my beach trip because I really miss wearing a bikini in public!

How do you prepare for a beach trip?

Summer Entertainment

I don't watch TV much anymore.  Right now the only shows I watch are The Bachelorette and The Today Show.  I did a marathon of Game of Thrones last weekend and the finale is Sunday.  But other than that I couldn't tell you what's on TV right now.

Usually summer TV sucks but this year I am super pumped for summer TV mainly because now I have HBO!  Here's what I'm looking forward to watching:

Drop Dead Diva- Sunday June 19 on Lifetime
True Blood- Sunday June 26 on HBO
Big Brother- Thursday July 7th
Entourage- Sunday July 24 on HBO

What are you looking forward to watching this summer?

Also go check out the reviews I just posted on my Book Shelf Blog:

Scary Stuff

I just saw this video on christine's blog and it scared the crap out of me.  For the past few weeks I have been sad because I haven't really been able to take advantage of my work's summer hours (supposed to get off at noon on Fridays but last Friday I ended up working until 8pm!).  I was so looking forward to going to the pool to read and tan.  I even bought a chaise lounge chair for my patio so I could try to work out there in the sun on my work-from-home days (turns out black computers get REALLY hot out in the sun!).

There is just something about having a tan that is so nice.  I love seeing tan lines.  It reminds me of summers gone by and all the fun I've had in the sun and vacations and the beach and well...just happiness!  But the sun causes cancer just like cigarettes (which btw...it's been 99 days without a cigarette for me woo hooo!!).  I've had my fair share of sunburns and I need to be better about protecting myself because melanoma is real and it is scary!

This was a wake up call for me...I actually teared up at work right as someone walked up to my desk.(embarrassing)!  Watch it.  Maybe it will be a wake up call for you too.

Another must see movie

I know I just posted a trailer for a movie yesterday, but here is another one I can't wait for.  Some of the scenes from this book I just have no idea how they are going to do them in the movie, but I can't wait to see them try.

The Vow

Have to see this!  Rachel McAdams is probably my most favorite actress and Channing Tatum is probably my #2 favorite hottie right behind Ryan Reynolds!

I don't know if I have mentioned it before but I hate sweater vests.  If you wear a sweater vest, I will make fun of you.  And no matter how "in" they become I can not rock a sweater vest due to this hatred of them.

But you know what one of my favorite looks for guys is?  The traditional vest.  Justin Timberlake rocks this look a lot.


As does David Beckham:

And the hottiest of hotties and my future husband Ryan Reynolds looks FINE AS HECK in a vest:

Although he can even make an ugly sweater vest look good:

What do you guys think of the vest?  What is your favorite look on guys?

Wishful Wednesday

Right now I am wishing for a vacation.  Anywhere really.  I just need to get away.

I am also loving this big chess table.  I'm thinking of trying to re-create it for my office/guest room/gym.

That's about it.  I need a tan, some new clothes, want to totally re-do my house, pay off my car, and lose 30 lbs, and be swept off my feet by a Ryan Reynolds look a like....I could go on and on....but whatever...can't have it all.

Happy Hump Day lovely readers!!
