Blog before bed

Today positively flew.

I think I thought about a million things to blog about today including (in no particular order)

- How my shopping habits have changed thanks to SP
- The challenge of eating healthy surrounded by 20-something year old guys
- My feelings on Wii-Fit
- How I don't gain weight on vacation
- My foe the snooze button
- Chewing gum to avoid eating so much

Topic I've picked? What vacation means to me.

You see, I think a lot of people go on vacation to relax. Makes sense, right? You're taking time from a job or other responsibilities and nothing sounds better than sitting back and doing nothing, right?

That's so not me.

In fact, when I go on vacation I plan a million things I want to do. I pick out tours and destinations and I make sure I have comfortable shoes. I've done a lot of travel in the last two years, mostly international. In a week and a half I'm headed to London again and I just know it's going to be a boost to my lifestyle. Imagine, spending days getting up around 7:30 where you just don't stop walking until around 8:00 PM? I don't log my vacations as exercise, but I'm sure they are.

Really, I don't even eat as much on them, either. I'm so focused on enjoying being in a foreign place that while I might enjoy a meal out - I'm not stopping to pick up things to fill my mouth with.

So, here's to my birthday in London this year, hopefully a great compliment to my new lifestyle!

    That Totally sounds like me on Vacation!!! I want to move, explore, visit, find, get in trouble.. i mean.. um.. lol!!! Vacation is a way to get away from my reality of every day living, and find new places, people, and things to laugh about, take pictures of, and enjoy.

    I'm jealous of your birthday in London. I will do that some day. My daughter has 2 more years of High School left, I'm hoping once she's in college things will settle down for us and we can begin really enjoying life, traveling, having fun. of course we will try to have a vacation with her every year, but all the possibilities open up!
