Day 1 = Fail

I am finally home, and I couldn’t be happier! And…I got started on some of the goals I set yesterday.

This morning I got up and went to the gym and wow. I thought I was going to die by minute 12 on the elliptical. I stayed on it for 30 minutes and did a little lifting afterwards. Good enough for the first day. This whole getting back into working out after a two month break thing is harder than it sounds.

Then I came home and hit up the pool. It was already getting hot by 10 am, so I figured why not.

On the plane last week I started reading a free ebook on my iPad. I soon found out why it was free, because it wasn’t that good and was full of typos, but I got sucked in anyway just to find out at the end of the book that it was the first of a series of three. And I had to pay for the 2nd and 3rd. Boo! But I did it anyways since I was already invested, and this led me to failing at my goals in multiple ways.

First, while I was at the pool I was laying on my stomach and rolling over to my back and the iPad slipped out of my hands and slid across the cement facedown. I picked it up and just my luck, the entire front of the screen was cracked. Huge bummer.

Cracked iPad

But then I could still read, so I stayed out there until I finished the entire book. So now, not only do I have a cracked iPad screen, I also have a pretty bad sunburn.

So, the one fun goal I set was kind of a bust. Better luck next time I guess.

The worst part about the iPad is that we also have a Macbook with a cracked screen. A couple years ago Will drove off with it still sitting on the top of his truck. This was when he was still stationed in Georgia, but I was actually visiting him that weekend. I love Apple products, but I do wish they were a bit more durable, ya know?

The best part of today though? I still have plenty of day left to work on furniture, cook dinner and maybe even fit in a  little nap! Maybe today isn’t such a fail after all! :)

    is working out just harder in the summer? i’ve been on a 2 month break too, but it wasn’t on purpose… oops! time to change that?

      Mine wasn’t necessarily intentional either! I think it might just be hard all the time. Working out in the winter requires you to go out in the cold, and in the summer there’s always something better to do!
