We got to go swimming outside today in MJ! It was a beautiful day (31 degrees) and the pool was warm and lovely!

Me and my electronics have had a very interesting week. I got a Macbook this week! I have been without my own computer for just over a month but I've been without a good, working computer that can access the internet for over a year now. So needless to say I'm stoked to have one again!
This week I also got a new Ipod! I went to turn on my old one and it wouldn't start so I figured no problem I'll charge it. Well that didn't work, there was nothing I could do to get this dang thing to turn on. And I don't know about you but I can not work out if I don't have music so off to walmart I went to get a new one. Well as I was loading music on my new Ipod Heather picked up my old one and IT TURNED ON! What the heck??? Well Krista now has an Ipod too!
Yesterday I was washing my bedding and when I pulled my sheets out of the washing machine my cell phone came out too... WHAT???? This is pathetic what else could go wrong with my electronics??? So now my cell phone is in a bed of rice dying out... I think I need to stay away from technology for an a while!
I LOVE MARTHA STEWART!!!
I know everyone makes fun of her because she was in jail but she is my favourite! She is brilliant, okay so maybe it's her staff that are brilliant! For Christmas I was given a subscription to her Living magazine and every month I devour it! This Month there were a ton of amazing recipes for the summer. My favourite one I have tried to far is the Pineapple Cucumber Salad... here it is for you!
2 cups Pineapple
1/4 cup Fresh Basil (we had to use dried basil and we used about 2 tbs)
1/4 cup Olive Oil
Cube pineapple and grill, then cool. Slice cucumber, rip basil leaves, mix everything together. This salad is AMAZING it's so sweet and fresh and summer tasting!
Wow I really suck at blogging regularly... not that I haven't tried in the past few weeks but for some reason Heather's computer wouldn't let me sign into my blog so I had to wait until I got my computer! And it came yesterday! I got my first mac and I'm loving it... when I can figure it out.
Okay so as you may or may not remember but for all of May I wasn't eating sugar, I DID IT!!! I made it through the month and was so proud of myself. Well last week I was able to eat sugar again and I did! I ate EVERYTHING this week I ate cookies, ice cream, cake and the list goes on. So after a horrid week I have decided that I need to cut out sugar again! This time it's not for a time period it's forever but I will be able to have sugar for special occasions or from time to time just not in my day to day life.
You also may or may not remember that I have signed up to do a 5km run this month. Krista and I will be doing this on Saturday! 2 weeks ago I was terrified that I wasn't going to be able to do it but last week I "ran" 5km for the first time ever and so now I know I can get this done on Saturday... I'm sure there will be pictures to follow!
This month I am doing another weight loss goal/challenge etc. I have to work out for a minimum of 5 hours a week. I've been doing it for 1 week and I've met my goal! I'm excited for the next 3 weeks to see how far I can come in this area.
And that is that. Look out for an update Sunday!
