Fun in the Summer Sun

What is your best memory from this summer, and also what are you most proud of accomplishing this summer?
Best memory – I went white water rafting for the first time ever this summer with my mom and little sister who were also newbies. At one point, we were told we could climb out and jump into one spot in the water that would suck us under and spit us down river. I took the challenge and did it. As soon as I climbed back into the raft, I hear my 50 year old mother say, “What the heck. You’re only 50 years old once!” and next thing I knew she climbed out of the raft, jumped, and popped up downstream. I will never forget that.
Biggest accomplishment – I got under the 200 pounds!

white water rafting sounds like a ton of fun, and a memory you will never forget. I hope to try it out next summer.

I did another 5K and established a new personal best for me-36 minutes. Running is a hard thing for me (I’m more of a short burst of activity kind of girl) and this was another milestone for me.

I had a good time in Cancun with my family on vacation. We are going back next summer and I hope to be in better shape, rockin my two piece this time!

Best memory – Scuba diving in the Red Sea with my dad.
Biggest accomplishment this summer – I just recently found out that I could, and should, squat ass to grass. This allowed me to start squatting again and I got up to 80 in a day. Couldn’t be more chuffed.
Congrats on getting under 200. You should reward yourself. A new pair of shoes or a new car. You know, whatever the budget allows. ;)

Thanks! I also went zip lining this summer, and I’ve booked my first ski trip for December. I’m finally starting to get out there, be adventurous, and enjoy my twenties. I got off track for awhile, but I’m back at it trying to get back under 200 again. I’m seriously considering buying an elliptical as a gift to myself since it’s too darn cold to workout outside in New England in the winter.

My Mom retired this year so me and my bro bought her a cruise ticket and we all went on a cruise to Honduras and Cozumel. We saw some 3000 year old mayan ruins, snorkeled, golfed, all kinds of fun. If I remember correctly, i put about 15 pounds on during that trip :D
