First Day of Summer Vacay!

I'm officially on summer vacation!! I'm pretty excited. We get two full months of "relaxation," Yeah. Right. Teachers still do stuff in the summer.  But that's another post.


I started my first day of vacation waking up BEFORE the sun came up! I know. Call me crazy. But the summer time is when I get to go back to bootcamp! I wake up between 4:30 and 4:45 to get to bootcamp by 5:30. Some mornings I have to leave early because Ron has to leave by 6:30ish, but that's ok. I get most of the workout and then I can do something later to "finish" it up.

I love starting my day off with a workout. It really gets your day started off the right way..and makes you really think about what you're putting into your body for the rest of the day.


So then I came home and hung out with the girls for a bit...

That smile.  

After Caroline got up from her morning nap, we headed out to finalize Brooklynn's registration for school next year! She's not old enough for VPK, but she's going to a 3 year old class. She's super excited. She might be excited because she walked Autumn to school every day last year. Or maybe it's because she checks the mailbox every day for her lunchbox that I ordered. Who knows. Both are equally exciting I think.

 Then it was home again for lunch and more quality time.

Something was so funny - she is just too much!!

If you're wondering why, of all people, did I not spend my first day at the beach?? Well, that's because it was raining all day.

I also did some yoga. See?? During the summer, I get to workout twice in one day! Amazing.

Most of you know that I love doing BeachBody workouts. In fact, I'm thinking of getting another one! ha!

But I also do a lot of workouts from Tone It Up. They have a lot of YouTube videos. I've saved some to my Tone It Up Channel on my YouTube, if you want to take a look, it's {HERE}.

So what does one get to eat while she's home all day??

Well, after I came home from my morning workout, I made a shake (Shakeology) and a few hours later, I had one of my favorite breakfasts from the Bikini Series (from Tone It Up).

Breakfast Banana Bowl

And for lunch, I made one of my favorite go-tos....

Tuna salad - it's basically whatever you want, but I use the 100 calorie tuna pouches (the lemon pepper and the hickory smoke are my favorite flavors!), tomatoes, scallions, celery, cucumbers, sea salt and pepper, and a tiny bit of mayo...just to moisten it up.  So yum.  I could eat it every day!

I also made this yummy snack..

It's peanut butter, honey, chia seeds, and cinnamon. Yum!

Who knows what tomorrow will bring!!

But it's the last week of the Bikini Series from Tone It Up!  I'm kind of excited to see the results from the 8 week series! I'll be sure to post pictures.

And then it's on to the next TIU venture!

It's time to get Fit, Fierce and Fab!

By the way, if you didn't know, I started a separate instagram for my fitness journey. So now I have 3 different accounts - haha.... @teacherbythebeach for my teacher blog, @jrossgetsfit for my fitness journey, and @jenross1018 for my "everything" else!
