day-cation

boo

the day-cation is officially over.
funny how when you are having a great time… time passes so quickly!!!

it was a great weekend.
sigh
and it’s over
a very expensive weekend – but you only live once!
see my new stylin’ hat?  i know the picture sucks but look at my bee-utiful hat!!!!

it was such an American weekend lol

a few years ago they got rid of all of the Outback restaurants in Canada.
i was devastated.  i loved the Outback!!!!!!
so as we were driving to our hotel to check in – what do we pass?????
AN OUTBACK!!!!
within walking distance!!!!
craaaaaaazy

i don’t have to tell you where we ate
and i will not tell you what i ate (but i will show you something i ate lol)

i was soooo very bad…i have the headache today to show for it

it was an amazing weekend.  lots of walking, laughing, eating…and wine 🙂
it was purrrfect.
i am glad we got to walk around and take things in – burn off dinner…take in the view.

i’ve been there before…but each and every time i go, i see through new eyes.
i have amazing memories and not so amazing memories of that place
but each time i go…it just keeps getting better and better – this is one of the pictures from the hotel.  not a bad view huh?

For breakfast we went to IHOP
again, i didn’t think we had IHOP’s in Canada…so of course we just had to eat there
i had strawberry banana pancakes
i thought i died and went to heaven…and then so did my belly.  i could not eat all of it…tooooooo much!!

wow – by Sunday my poor belly looked like i was 4 months pregnant.  i wish it didn’t dislike carbs so much!!!!!

I have lots of pictures and videos…but none that i will share here..although i gotta say, the videos are so awesome that the whole world should witness them…especially me belting out adele –  rolling in the deep lol

i’ll save all that for the blog next door.

no gym for me tonight…no time – apparently the hotel i stayed at had an amazing gym -alas i did not see it!!!

this being an adult stuff is for the birds.  i just wanna play!!!!

vacation mode

it’s a little hard for my mind to wrap around vacation mode.

although, the night hawk in me seems to have no problem.

i was up until 4am this morning.  I stirred in bed this morning and struggled to get up.
I really didn’t need to wake up.
There was no work to go to, no dog to walk.  the cats were perfectly content lounging with me.
but i got up anyways.  sleeping in too long feels like a waste of day…why not waste it on the couch in my fat pants!
besides, i am a professional napper…and i have all the time in the world to do that today.

As i was sitting on the couch, with a purring cat on my lap….
the very last thing i wanted to do was move.  I argued with myself for what seemed forever and finally got off the couch (much to my cat’s dismay) and got changed and worked out.

I totally get how a lot of people have good intentions and yet give up on working out.  it’s so much easier to chill out and just be…

but…i am sooo happy that i did – like i always am after a work out.  It was good…i kicked some serious ass
and felt worlds better afterwards.

I threw myself in the shower…went grocery shopping….and now i am sitting here on my couch, waiting patiently for my awesome dinner to be ready (low carb of course)
I am drinking a low carb beer, and looking forward to the nap that’s gonna happen in the very near future.

with as much as i have on my mind….i am doing pretty well.  taking care of myself, eating as healthy as possible and trying to enjoy this time away from work – although work would be an awesome distraction if i have to be honest.

Today is a not so bad a day.

Let’s hope tonight, sleep finds me at a decent hour….i gotta be at the airport early in the morning!!!

Happy Monday kids.

replenishing my spirit

this weekend was not about carb counting, cardio workouts and power walking….

this weekend was about:

~ late night bbq with the people i love the mostest

~ coffee and cheesecake and awesome conversation

~ early morning road trip with one of my bff’s

~ singing in the car at the top of my lungs

~ laughing till i cried

~ mid day naps

~ late night timmies run

~ throwing on comfies and watching movies on the couch

~ lazy sunday morning

~ walking the dog

~ reading more of the book that is soooooo hard to put down!

~ writing

~ iced coffees

~ chai tea

~ quiet stillness

~ good eatin’

~ relaxing

~ love

it was a perfect weekend.  one where i didn’t have to worry about when i would fit in a work out, or when i would find time to fit in an hour and a half walk.
this weekend i just “was”.  i was tired from the crazy week i had…and so i took it easy…
loving every moment of just bee-ing

i am rejuvenated, awake, energetic and happy.  i am ready to kick this weeks ass.
back to cardio madness tonight!
wooo-hooo!!
