Sorry it took so long to get this blog posted, but things have been crazy since we got back from vacation! First of all we had a great time!! I got in TONS of walking while on the beach, shopping, and on the pier. We were VERY active! That was my goal!! I didn't want to just sit around and be lazy. Not only that, but we took tons of healthy snacks with us like fruit, low fat cheese and triscuts, tons of water, almonds, so even my eating on the trip was RELATIVELY healthy! The first night there we stayed with my in-laws and she made me the best salad for dinner that night. All with fresh veggies from her garden that she brought down with her. Here's a few pics from the trip:

The only rough patch was the night we tried to camp on the beach. We were prepared for cooler temps and winds, but we were not prepared enough. Our tent was way to big, more suited to camping by the lake, not the beach. It was so tall it caught so much wind and nearly blew away, even though it was staked down. We had to get up in the middle of the night and tie it to the truck. Plus it was beyond cold and sand....so much sand, everywhere! In places it shouldn't be!!
I wanted to post this blog when we got back on Wednesday, but I was suffering from a horrible allergic reaction. It started with little bumps behind my ears and over the next couple days it spread all over my face. The skin around my eyes, nose, and mouth became extremely dry and ultra sensitive. I'm not really sure what I came in contact with, but I'm just now starting to get better. I've been hopped up on Benadryl for days, but I'm back!
I'll post a blog tomorrow with the new workout review. What I have planned today is super crazy!
