Good morning! I am back, actually I never left but I needed a day to recuperate. My husbands’ 6 grade school and high school friends came to our town for their annual long weekend. Each year we rotate to someones’ hometown and this year it was at our house.
The weekend consisted of copious amounts of laughter and fun, along with an abundance of food and liberal amounts of alcohol, the one thing we were lacking was sleep. Most nights I was up until 1:00-1:30 and up at 6:00 with my pups. I actually was the one who went to bed the earliest, the others stayed up until 3:00 and one night until 5:00 am. Needless to say by Monday I was dragging.

I hate to admit this but I am a glutton when it comes to parties and weekend get-togethers because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE food and because for the most part it is just me and my husband on a daily basis. When I have a group of people to bake for and to make things I never make at home I go wild.
Which leads me to my question how do you maintain a healthy lifestyle in the summer? Are you disciplined all of the time? Do you have a set exercise routine and diet that you always follow? Or do you allow yourself a little leeway at the weekend and in the summer?

I am pretty disciplined during the week. Monday thru Friday I go to hot yoga an hour a day and I walk between 3-5 miles a day. On the weekend I take a break from yoga and do longer walks with my husband or go out on my stand up paddle board.

As for food, I love to eat the same food all of the time. It’s strange but I have been like that since I was little. Typically, I have sprouted toast, 1/2 avocado and 2 scrambled or hard boiled eggs for breakfast or a protein shake and whatever we are having for dinner(usually chicken/meat and a salad or vegetable). I like all sorts of food except seafood and I eat it all in moderation. As I love to bake, I often eat 1/2 of whatever piece I use for my photos in the blog and give the other 1/2 to my husband. For those of you that ask what happens to the baked goods you see on the blog, I give them to friends or take them to the people at my Fed-ex store.

On the weekends I like to eat pizza, hamburgers or pasta, not every weekend and not all of these things at once.
Please share your healthy tips for maintaining your healthy lifestyle in the summer. I would love to hear what sorts of food you eat and and exercise that you do.
Have a great day!
