Aloha friends! It's the first Wednesday of my summer vacation and I am lovin' it! I don't know what came over my body, but it went into serious relaxation mode! I have not wanted to do anything but play outside, sleep and read. Blogging and creating have taken a nosedive!
I am so glad that I committed to my Workin' It Wednesday posts. I have lots of fun ideas for the summer.
This week I am going to share how I plan to stay in shape this summer. Fortunately I stay in pretty decent shape all year long from surfing. It is also bikini weather 24/7 so it motivates you just a bit more. But between working, kids and blogging, I have fallen off my workout wagon.
I wanted to be more disciplined this summer since I have the time, and I wanted to do more than just surf and call it a day. I was planning on writing down all my workouts and recording what I was eating in a little journal, and then I remembered a great website I was using a few years back.
Some friends and I started using this to keep track of our diet and excercise. It really makes you think about what you are eating and how much you are working out. They have a great iPhone app that I can also access on my iPad.
You log in your daily food intake and your goals. It gives you a report each day on how you are doing. It looks like my biggest no no is my sugar intake! I already know I eat too much sugar, but seeing it on here deters me from grabbing that last cookie, or piece of chocolate.
At the end of the day it reports how you did to your friends in your news feed. I must say it can get a little time consuming logging in all the items you have eaten. There is a feature where you can scan the label of your food item and it gives your the low down on the food. Pretty cool!
Another app I use is called Map My Run. It helps you figure out how far you ran, and how many calories you burned.
It is so handy and stores all of your previous routes once you log a new one in. Just enter your info and it is super easy. For both apps my feed automatically syncs with my Facebook account and posts on my Timeline. My workout buddies can see what I have been doing and it motivates them to do more as well.
My user name for both of these apps is Alohamama2 if you are interested in joining my friend list for more encouragement :)
So how else have I been Workin' It? My family and some friends went for a great hike on Memorial Day. We hiked out to Kaena Point which is a beautiful spot about 15 minutes from our house.
If you have ever watched Lost this is where the first few episodes were filmed. (Where the plane crashed)
A friend of ours took us to some caves that are hidden on the side of the mountain.
It was a little creepy in there and I was a bit nervous. Way in the back was a ladder that led to a different tunnel. Everyone, except me, climbed up and crawled through the side of the mountain to another opening. I don't know about you, but I get a little claustrophobic in dark, tiny spaces!
All in all it was a great hike. It took us 4 hours from start to finish and we were all exhausted!
Oh, yeah! Now I can eat that extra piece of chocolate!
I am really very fortunate to have such beautiful weather and scenery to keep me fit and healthy year round.
One last thing that I have been Workin' On! I finished my June Word Problems! Thank you so much for all of the positive feedback on these.
I will have them on sale in my TpT store until June 1st. I would also love to give away a few sets to my wonderful followers. Leave me a comment below, anything about this post, along with your email. I will pick three winners on Friday.
