After having a bad day yesterday, I have decided that today is all about positivity. So here are a few thing I am loving about today.

The Sun, this morning started with rain, thunder and lightening. Now it is beautiful and I am going to go for a bike ride.

Iced Coffee, I love it with just a splash of soy milk. For some reason the bitterness doesn’t bother me when its iced, if its warm I have to throw in some Splenda.

My hair – I did nothing except brush it this morning and it dried with a nice little wave to it. I love when a have a good hair day with no effort!

The last couple of days have been beautiful and today even broke 70 for the first time this year! It was amazing.

This tree is so pretty, they have them all through out my complex.

So to celebrate all this amazingness I wore a dress to work with peep toe shoes, then changed into this for my lifeguarding class

The shorts are from American Eagle and I got them for $10! I absolutely love them. So much more comfortable for me right now then the regular short shorts I wear. The sunglasses are Ray Bans and I am also in love. I got them in December because The Sunglasses Hut sent me a coupon for my birthday and this is one of the handful of times I have been able to wear them. I’m so glad I got that coupon though because last summer I went through a phase of losing expensive sunglasses, that and getting speeding tickets :/ It was a very expensive time.

Workout

On Monday I went to my master swim class from 5 AM – 6:20, came home and got ready for work in record time, and then went to  work. From work I had PT and then rushed to the gym for the Lifeguard Certification classes I am taking. The class runs from 4:30 – 9:30 and I had assumed it would be mostly book work. Boy was I wrong! We spent the first hour doing the initial swim test (which took forever because I was the only one who could actually lap swim). From there we went to the class room for about an hour and a half and the rest of the time was spent back in the pool. I have not been swimming on a regular basis so this was a lot of pool time for me and has made me exhausted this week. 

This morning I decided it was best to skip my swimming and save my energy for lifeguarding which worked out for the best, today we spent an hour in the class room and almost 4 in the pool. This class is giving me a good workout and I don’t think I need to do 2 a days, maybe once I’m in shape it wouldn’t be so bad but not now when I am just getting into things.

What I Ate Wednesday

I’ve seen this on other blogs and thought it would be fun to do here to! Once a week is really enough, trust me, if you saw my eats everyday I would bore you all to death. So here we go:

Breakfast: Fage Greek yogurt, 1/2 of a banana, 5 strawberries + coffee with SF creamer and 2 Splenda packets

Snack 1: Mixed Nuts

Lunch: Chicken w/ almonds lean cuisine (I try to avoid these but I was really busy today and couldn’t leave work to get food)

Snack 2: 1/2 banana w/ maple almond butter. I use these packets for portion control – otherwise I would eat way to much, this stuff is amazing.
