Running on the Beach

 

 

Good Evening Friends!

Summer Bucket List Item #8

Running on the Beach.

Are you a multitasker? If I told you that you could exfoliate your tootsies, wear a bikini, get in shape, and be on vacation all in the same sentence, wouldn’t you be enticed? The gig is running on the beach. It has become one of my new favorite things in LIFE!

For those of you who have difficulty with the MIND portion of mind, body, and sole*, you have got to put this on your bucket list ASAP. I know how challenging a run can be when you are having one of those… I. Just. Can’t. Go. Any. Farther!!!! moments. Believe me when I tell you that your thoughts will only become positive – the waves crashing on the shore and atmosphere at the beach will have you feeling great and going the distance!

Now, for those of you who are ready to get a more fit BODY, running is a fantastic tool! To change difficulty levels, try running in different types of sand. More compact sand occurs just before the waves end on the shore which is a bit easier and makes for a really solid run. If you want to feel like you are in a scene from Baywatch, run in the squishy sand where the water ripples on shore. You will cool off from the water splashing on your sun kissed skin and your feet will love the way the sand feels! For my friends who want a challenge, run in the soft sand that is a bit farther away from the water. This is much more difficult and really works your legs!

And, because I am just so clever…. for those of you who need to work on your SOLES*, running on the beach will give you the softest feet. Plus, you can save some major moola – Guuurrl, I am talking to you with the pedicured toes!!  Sand is a natural exfoliant and that salty ocean water aides as a natural healer for scars. Sounds like the perfect combo to me.

Mind, Body, and Sole ❤

Define EDM

 

avicii twoHey Lovelies,

Bucket List Item #6

Go to an EDM Concert!

Bucket List Item #7

Go to an Outdoor Concert!

Well, Mama killed 2 birds with 1 stone by seeing Avicii at an outdoor venue in Virginia.

So… what is EDM? Sounds a whole lot like a disease if you ask me. Even though I would consider EDM to be contagious, spreading across festival season this year, it’s just Electronic Dance Music! Fear Not Friends! I might say that EDM has side effects as well. Get ready to be blinded by neon outfits – to be sweated from dancing in the summer heat – to be exhausted from spontaneous jumping. But the most common side effect is smiling!

So smile, dance, be…. electric? Yeahhhh!! ❤

 

 

 

Hott Girls Drive Mauve Corollas

Hello Friends!!

Summer Bucket List Day 5!

One of the greatest purchases of all time was my mauve ’98 Toyota Corolla. Two thousand Dollars at the age of 16 – 267,000 miles driven in that bad boy – millions of winks despite poor aesthetics – all add up to hundreds of hours spent having fun on the road and not getting a new car till I am almost 26 years old! I have wanted a RAV4 for years so it was a long time coming. I was pretty sad to see my baby go but my Limited Edition, push to start whip is great and was definitely celebration-worthy. Such a milestone deserves an Aperol Spritz & Cheesecake Factory.

This isn’t just something to cross off on the Summer Bucket List – this really is one for the books!
