Friday, June 28, 2013--How I did on my Vacation

Friday, June 28, 2013

Tomorrow we head back home to Indiana. I will miss the relaxation and beauty of the lakes, the simplistic lifestyle and my morning walking buddies.

This is a summary of how my vacation went:

1. Unfortunately internet access was difficult. I guess when you are up in God's country, it was a sign from him to enjoy the beauty of what he created, spend time with the family and just relax.

2. However, I did get up early every morning and walked up town and around with over 7,000 miles each morning. I did all the challenges for the BLC because I printed them out ahead of time and took them with me. I had to email the results to my captain because I wasn't able to access the internet.

3. I enjoyed fishing with my family and a trip to the Mall of America. My SIL and I walked the mall. What a workout. I was able to resist Haagen Daz ice cream at the mall and daily dairy queen. I did have a $1 ice cream cone a couple of times because I did not want to deprive myself and end up picking something really bad.

4. To get my TNT done yesterday, my DD and I were at the laundromat and I did my TNT while waiting for the laundry to wash and dry. At one point my DD went to the gas station across the street to get water for us. She came back and found me using the laundry detergent bottle as a kettle bell.

Today the weather has not been the best for fishing but is perfect to take another walk up town and get my steps in. I plan to get my walk in tomorrow before we leave for home. It is a 7 hour drive. Hope everyone else had a great week.
