Fall Break Vacation

We don't usually take a fall break vacation but decided to this year to celebrate a dear friend's 40th birthday. For me this meant relaxation from everything... home, work, KIDS! And while I had every intention of working out daily while on vacation that just did not happen.

We left last Tuesday afternoon to travel to Orlando, FL where we would spend all day Wednesday at Magic Kingdom. So, if you count the 11-13 miles we walked around that park between 1:30 p.m. and 1 a.m. I guess I did work out that day. And it was a LOT of fun doing all the things we had set out to do, like seeing our favorite princess, Ariel.

The next day we headed to Port Canaveral to board a ship headed to Nassau, Bahamas! The goal aboard the ship was to workout both mornings when we had time. I made it out the door one day for 35 minutes on the elliptical and about 15 minutes of weights. And to my surprise when I walked out our cabin door my friend and I were dressed alike. Great minds!!!

We had an amazing time with our friends celebrating! We swam with stingrays, hung out on a private beach, went to a comedy club on the ship, lounged by the pool, ate and drank a lot and had great conversations. Despite the lack of working out and all the food/drink over the course of the 4 days I came back only up 3 pounds on the scale from what I was when we left. I can deal with that.

Now I am back to work and trying hard to get in the last few workouts and runs that I can before my surgery next week!
