My 1st & 2nd Days of Vacation
Tuesday, July 12, 2011
Yesterday, we got in the car at 6:00 and we were off to Flagstaff, Arizona. My DH drove the first leg and after a pit stop, I drove the rest. Well, after lunch, he drove my sons car, so my DH only got a little break. Oh well!! We got to the house at about 1:30ish. It is gorgeous. Haven't taken pictures yes, but I will do soon and post. We emptied out the cars (ok, the kids did that!) and then, DH and I went shopping. Wasn't as bad as last year since we have less people. My oldest stayed home to make money for his fraternity dues & 2 friends didn't come this year. A little quieter. Dinner was whatever. Tired and didn't want to cook. The kids had pizza and I had some salads.
This morning, I was up early as usual. Out of bed by 6:00. What the heck? It's vacation. Oh well. I got my workout clothes and was out the door to do some exploring. I did a run/walk (trying to get used to the elevation) for 50 mins. Came home, got on the computer for a bit, hopped into the shower and then, we all went out for breakfast. I was so proud of myself: 3 egg white omelet with spinach, mushrooms and onions. No oil, butter. I had a bite of pancake and that was it. Did some shopping and came back to house. DH, my little princess and I got on our bikes and went riding for a bit. We were out for about 30 minutes, so, I got to add that to my tracker. Wasn't much, but it was something. DH and I went for drive to find me places to ride my bike. Found a few routes, so I'm looking forward to that. After we got back, we were all hungry. Never ate lunch. So, we went to have LINER (lunch/dinner). Went to a Mexican place which was very good. I had a chicken salad which was really good. A few tortilla chips, but nothing bad.
Now, I'm home and relaxing. Going to sit on the couch and read. Not sure what's on tap for tomorrow, but, I'm hoping hiking is involved.
Edit here: totally forgot to mention that I got on the scale this morning (I weigh in every Tuesday morning) and I'm down .2. I know, it's not much, but, it was a bad weekend, so I'm good with that!
