Dear July

Dear July,

Oh what a month you have been!

You have been a full, silly, busy, exciting, exhausting and memorable 31 days.

I started the month with high hopes for exercise and healthy eating success.
I even attempted my first kale smoothie (dist-gusting BTW)

 But then you, July, and all your fun and excitement threw a slight wrench in my plans...

The 4th was filled with great fun, as well as great quantities of food...
I did manage to run a 5K...
Buuuut then my birthday came, and I started eating....
and eating....

 ...and eating...

We went to Palm Springs for the night... and guess what? I kept eating...




We got home from Palm Springs... and I kept eating...
I went camping with my parents and actually got in a decent little trail run...


But that run flew out the window faster than you can say Surfin' Donuts...

July, I'm not saying good stuff didn't happen - in fact, what I'm trying to tell you is that too much good stuff happened. I went to the beach a ton, got a tan, went shopping, took kids to summer camp, fixed my engagement ring, visited my dog at my grandparent's house and had so much fun doing all of that!


But really July, the fun has got to stop. I have to get serious now.  It's time to eat clean, work hard, and show some self-discipline.  Life isn't one big party you know.

So it's official then.  July - we're breaking up. I'm moving on to new months. One new month in particular.  It's called August.  August is going to introduce me to all kinds of new things.  New things like regular exercise, long runs, and lots of veggies.

I'm sure there are going to be days when I miss you July, but this is for the better, I promise.  Maybe someday, in 11 months or so, we can talk again.  Until then, au revoir July - it's been real!

Sincerely,

Chubbier-than-June-Gabby
