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!
