I suck!  Still!

While it's fair to argue that I don't suck quite as much as the month before...I still can't brag from the roof tops how awesome I am!

Since I can't just admit to not being focused or motivated, I will give you my excuse.

The nice weather!  Yup!  I am totally complaining about winter receeding.  Here's the thing, all winter long, I had a routine!  I got everything I needed to get done by 8 and put the kids in bed.  From there, I went and jumped on the treadmill for an hour.  Now that the nicer weather is here, we are outside in that magic hour between 7 and 8...the kids are going to bed a bit later and then I tell myself it's too late.

This week I have managed to get out of work earlier than usual and head to the local trail before I go home.  I'm hoping for a stronger June.

Let's take a little looksie!

And how is my fancy dancy map that my walking partner, Julie, put together for me?
