*Time Out Question*

I'm looking through the arm before photos and EVERYONE'S arms look very normal to me.

Am I just used to my type of arms, or are we not that worse for wear?

That beach is charming, which province are you in?

Ontario. Sugar Beach is just one the several fake beaches set up along downtown Toronto's waterfront. They may not be natural occurrences, but they do pretty up the boardwalk. The view in the background is of the Toronto Islands in Lake Ontario.

Forgot to answer my own question.

Beaches are my happy place so I probably love 'em all. But my absolute most favourite one I've been to is Accra Beach in Barbados. When we were there, the Water was the most beautiful, bluest dark sapphire-y blue I have ever seen. And the water temperature was perfect, and not so still nor too wavy. And the sand white and unbelievably soft underfoot, almost like memory foam! And clean! And empty (at the time)! Of course, I don't have a picture of it I can post, as I was there long before digital cameras and camera phones where commonplace. I know I have actual prints from a film camera somewhere in the basement of my mom's place. I should go look for them....

I'd love to go to like ANY beach in Seychelles someday...

Ummmmmmmmm, I dunno. I think my arms are pretty un-normal to me, but thanks for saying that they are, lol.

I should have asked my husband, he is from Hamilton and Toronto. I know Iโ€™ve been to the boardwalk, but I donโ€™t think I ever have in summer.

Iโ€™ll be in Toronto/Ajax visiting family the first week of August, Iโ€™ll make sure to wave towards your general direction!

Oops... missed yesterday's arm workout. But I still got in my 5km yesterday and today. I'm listening to a fun YA audiobook while I walk. It doesn't help my pace the way music does, but the time goes by faster. Did a mishmash of the arm workouts and my arms feel good and tired. :)

Yesterday's pic... a beach. Living on the prairies, there aren't many beaches to be had, but there's a man made lake less than an hour away, and we went there for Canada Day last year.

Today's pic... family. A shot from my MIL's 80th birthday celebration. 20180701_131408.jpeg 20190511_182455.jpeg

I'm not a beach girl. Never really have been, despite spending my teen years in the sunny Okanagan. Honestly, I find the sand irritating and it's messy... lol. The nicest beach I've ever been to was probably in Spain, but that was more years ago than I care to admit.

My dad used to live in Ajax :)

Ajax has a really nice (and natural!) waterfront, great for hiking/exploring.

You'll have to wave eastward that week, planning a mini road trip into Quebec in the beginning of August โ™ฅ๏ธ

Maybe a little bit of both? We are all super critical of ourselves so we are quick to point out our self-perceived flaws, but we're also so accustomed to what our arms look like and so it looks normal-ish to us all.

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Too cold here for short sleeves, which considering the state of my arms is a good thing. I was frolicking near home in SoCal a few weeks ago in that pic.

      Losingย 1.2kg/2.6lbsย in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbsย per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second timeย ๐Ÿ˜Ž

        Congratulations! You have every right to feel proud!

      2. sillykitty

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

      3. Krestel

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.ย  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt.ย 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
