I had some great work news.. I'm trying to build up my business again. We have new expenses with Celina driving, equals more insurance to pay and Logan getting braces, plus Steve's dental work. It all adds up and I needed to start earning more. I picked up two new jobs this week and one last week. I'm well on my way but there is more work to be done. I have a dollar amount I'm working towards making next month. Got to have goals. Hopefully, I'll be able to hire help again too! Well, see how busy with work I really want to be. Good news to that Logan is ready to get braces. We were just waiting for all his teeth to come down and the last two are good to go! Next week he has the consulation and away we go.

I had a quick 10 mile bike ride this morning and a fast Motorcycle ride to Northfield with Steve. This was the first time this summer I actually wanted to go for a ride.

I was back running this morning. A quick 1.5 miles was all I had time to run. The sun takes it sweet time coming up. When it was light enough, I didn't have an hour or even 30 minutes to get in a bike ride. What else can you do in 15 minutes? RUN!

If you can run in the rain with out melting then you can bike.

Some days I can not wait to get up and start my day. I love being an early bird, getting in yoga and my daily exercises before the sun comes up.

I have zero photos of boating with Zoey from last night. I do have a photo in the car waiting for Steve to pick up our picnic dinner.
I have a photo from our morning bike ride..Which I'm skipping riding at all today. It's one of those extremely hard work days where I just need to get through my work and I don't need to add anything else on to my schedule. I just have to ignore that it's a perfect weather morning to ride some miles.
I've been making cookies again. This time the traditional Snickerdoodles with cinnamon and sugar. Mostly when I make these cookies I top them with sprinkles or colored sugar.. and leave off the cinnamon.
I have this habbit now of searching for Zoey everywhere in the house. I am always wanting to know where she is. Usually I find her under the table or curled up on some chair. She usually gives me this look when I disturb her quiet sleepy time, which is 99% of her day.

I'd be lost with out Steve too. I just am liking biking far more then running and it's because we can do this together. I don't have to go it alone. Plus, he pushes the pace with his new bike. I use to be the one out in front and now he is extra speedy.
Steve had this great idea to go to Yogurt Lab last night for a late night treat. It was acutally his dinner and my snack. I mostly loaded on the fruit but it's hard to eat chocolate without peanutbutter cup on top. This place has become one of our favorites, not only because the yogurt is good but they charge per the cup, not by weight. You can really load up this cup!
Monday was a work day and an Evan day. Celina and Logan both took turns watching Evan while I worked for a few hours. I promised him we'd go swimming at the pool. We took him a few weeks ago and then he went on vacation and swam a ton. Well, his swimming has improved a lot! He is a little fish in the water!
Just a few more north shore photos of Tait lake and on top of Eagle Mountain. I almost feel like setting up the tent again and just sleeping outside. We just have a few racoons that like to visit during the night, so I'm not so sure I'm up for animal visits?

Biking hits my butt and legs more then running. I kind of like that. I'm not giving up running, we just are on a break right now.
Zoey watched me do my daily exercises. Any longer of a break from doing planks etc.. and I would have had a tougher time. I'm so glad I didn't lose much fitness over the week+ I skipped these exercises. It's just not a good idea to keep passing on my exercises. I'm going to make a plan to get to the gym this week and start lifting again. It's the only way to tone up along with diet.
I was in the mood for good pancakes and when Steve had left over batter, I made one up for me. I'm trying to work on my diet. Baby steps. Usually, I do have a healthy low cal breakfast so I'm not too worried about this pancake with real maple syrup. I just need to make good snack choices.
