During the past two weeks of summer, something I have been doing is going to the beach to watch the sunset or enjoy the summer breeze. I’m quite fair skinned, so I have to be careful about getting sunburnt. I make sure to use a lot of sunscreen and not spend too much time in the sun. Since its hot outside, I can go to the beach at night and not worry about the sun. I’m thoroughly enjoying my vacation with my friends and family, but I still make sure to take classes, do Pilates, and go to the gym to stay in shape during the off season.
