the heat is on

Holy Hannah it's icky! It was 20 degrees when I got up this morning - that ain't right! Especially when they're getting snow in Calgary and it was like 3 degrees in Winnipeg. UGH! Weather like this makes me so sluggish and tired so I went right back to bed and didn't go to the gym, which is ok because I give myself 2 days off a week from running and exercise. But that means no wimping out tomorrow or Sunday. Both days I'll be back to hitting the pavement and running outside though. And I'll be testing out my running skirt too! I'm very excited. Another problem with this heat is increased desire for cold treats. Yesterday I had a yummy Starbucks Orange Mocha Frappuccino Light (2 points for a tall - tastes like one of those chocolate oranges). It's totally my new addiction for the summer. But I HATE drinking any of my points. I know that's weird, but it's just the way I am. I need to remember to carry around a water bottle with me more often. I'm really good about having one with me at the gym, on my desk at work and at home, but when I'm out and about I forget and it's really gonna kill me in this heat!

Your skirt is adorable. :)

I am the same way about drinking away points, because it doesn't satisfy me. My only exception is 1% milk, which I try to drink 1 cup or so of each day. I've never been a fan of Starbucks frapps, but that one sounds yummy!

YUMM Orange & Chocolate! We are getting a Starbucks on my city next month...which makes me happy and nervous all at once.
I too know what you mean about drinking your points....it's just not worth it! But sometimes you just gotta indulge!
Have a good weekend!

Poor Marie... it's too hot!!! Lol. I wish I were there instead of here covering my plants so they don't die in this horrible cold weather. Stupid Manitoba.

I love the Starbucks Fraps - deelish. But I agree. Drinking points away seems ridiculous some days.

Stay cool!

i agree, this weather was hot this morning! i was dying during my run at 7 am! that skirt is sooo cute! if i had more money i would so buy one! and i am the same way about drinking my points, i usually just drink water or diet cream soda so they don't count!

How do you run in this heat!? I went out yesterday to try and do my couch to 5K jog/walk intervals and I couldn't do it. I was sweating and panting and out of breath and I felt nauseous, even!

Yeah I agree with not wanting to "drink" my points away, but I certainly do enjoy a drink "treat" now and then, especially now that the summer is here! Thanks for the heads up on this one! I can't wait to try it!

sarah - i nearly passed out yesterday morning after running for 50 mins - and i had to do 10:1s, which i normally don't do on my own. the air quality is NOT helping my asthma.

I try to go out early (or wait until later when the sun goes down) and get it done, don't overdress and drink water!!
