But, no. My 4th was fine.
I was craving watermelon HARD. Hardcore needing watermelon in my life
So, like the first thing I did on my fourth was... well, crave watermelon all throughout my Asylum workout. But the second thing I did was... take a shower. OKAY, I did all the normal things I do before starting a day all whilst craving watermelon and then when I left the house I went to HEB to get some.
So, I finally got myself to the ghetto HEB. If you live in Austin- you can probably decipher that I'm speaking of the unnecessarily GIANT HEB on East Riverside. (and it's kind of a weird and embarrassing story how I even ended up at that one.. yeah too awkward for this blog even) Yes, it's like the newest HEB in town, but it's still THE ghetto HEB. I mean...
....it's on East Riverside.
... Poor guy never really had a chance.
"I... didn't do anything?"
"Yes you did."
"don't do it again. Don't do that again"
And then she turned around
And I was left standing there trying desperately not to do it again. Whatever it was.
So, yeah. Happy 4th of July y'all!
(a week late)
I WANNA TALK ABOUT MY CHALLENGE GROUP!
I mean, I'm not hosting it on my own, but with the help of my personal coach- Rachel (go like her on Facebook. She's great. I'm a lucky woman to have an awesome mentor)
But yeah, of my challengers I've got a couple that are really dedicating themselves to the group. Here's what a 30 day challenge group is:
So, for instance my one friend is doing the 21 Day Fix- which is an amazing program that focuses on portion control. It's also ideal if you're not quite ready to jump around like a madman with Insanity or something. Look at this collage I made
-Shana... from the challenge group
(come on guys
try to pay attention)
But seriously- awesome job Shana (and everyone in the group)
AND I'VE GOT ANOTHER ONE COMING UP!
Like, I feel like I'm not giving Asylum enough of a review and talking it up enough because I'm so ready to get started with Piyo. I've neglected my yogas for too long. Mainly because my favorite yoga spot in town started making all their yoga classes hot yoga and I get gross and sweaty on my own without the help of man made heaters.
"No, you use the sweatband. You sweat more than me"-- direct quote from my boyfriend re: how gross and sweaty I get
And yoga really was my first love exercise. I mean the first exercise I ever got into was running. And that was just because I was 16, realized I was getting chubby and finally figured out that that wasn't going to change on it's own. SO! I started running. Not because I loved it (I still really just do it just in case there's ever a surprise 5k I might want to do at any point) (Austin is fucking crawling with "fun runs")
Anyway, I chose running because I could do it alone (no one else in my house exercised) with little to no instruction needed.
So, it will always hold a special place in my heart.
I've just neglected it so, so much in the last year. And I'm sorry yoga. Please forgive me... with the help of Charlene Johnson
But, yeah. I'd love to talk to you about it if you're interested in joining our rock star challenge group.
Or if you just want to talk about your goals
Or if you want to show me pictures of your dog.
... I really want to see pictures of your dog

I leave you with some animals who also carry the burden of awkwardness
