Settle in folks- It is update time!!
Happy Monday Ya’ll! I seriously hope all of my readers didn’t ditch me while I was on vacation. I had every intention of blogging from Florida but once I went “offline” for a couple of days- it felt great. So, executive decision was to catch up on the old blog when I got home. To be honest, vacation was wonderful. Florida was a bit rainy but we had more sun than clouds and I honestly have no complaints. We spent half of the week in Tampa and the other half in Orlando aka Disney central. While I have a couple of things I want to recap- including a Run Disney event- I think the rest of vacation is better summed up with the old adage- a picture is worth a thousand words!!
We had Beaches…
And now we are back in reality…sort of. It actually took a full five days of being back at work to get myself back on any sort of real schedule. My eating habits have been terrible, water intake dismal, and general motivation in the dumps. I hate, hate, hate that I let vacation become an excuse to get lazy but that is where we are. Luckily, I am not letting this turn into a full blown derailment and I have
- Made A Meal Plan
- Made A Workout Schedule
- Food Shopped/ Prepped
for the week. I am also planning on getting back to my weekly weigh-ins and reports ASAP because THAT is what keeps me honest. Just saying. I am ready to take off another 40 pounds. It’s time. Also, am I the only one that HEARTS some good stationary and notebooks for keeping track of “all the things” ? Seriously- I am obsessed.
And speaking of workouts, color me excited about my new Under Armour kicks!!! You might recall (probably not –teehee) that I reviewed a freebie pair of shoes from Under Armour a couple falls back. They totally made a loyal customer out of this girl. I am still just as jazzed about the shoes as I was then. If another company can offer up a light shoe with a roomy toe box and maximum cushioning that could out perform these– I would love to see it. Consider yourself challenged. 😉 I bought these at the outlet for around half of the retail price. I was THRILLED.
It is cold, cold, cold here. So this means the trial is clearing up a bit. Woohoo!!! It also means I am going to have to put my gym membership to use. If anyone can recommend a good beginners plan for strength training/toning pass it my way!
In other life news- guess who had something to celebrate this weekend? The hubs and I have made it through 7 exciting and wonderful years of marriage. The rain totally derailed our plans so we spent the weekend just hanging out. We caught a movie (Maze Runner was pretty rad), had a couple yummy meals, and (probably my favorite part of the weekend) took off for a rainy drive on the parkway. We snapped photos, stopped at some little gift shops/lodges along the way and generally had a wonderful weekend.
Tell me your fall plans!! Halloween parties? 5Ks? Pumpkin Patch? I am loving all things fall.
