Whirlwind Trip and Trying to Stay on Plan
Saturday, March 24, 2012
I know this is going to say it's Saturday but truly it's Friday night, 11:00.
It's been a CRAZY day. Stood in line for the movie. Thank goodness we were the first showing and we got to get into the theater at 9:00 out of the cold! But the weight was SO LONG! Movie was great! Did a good job following the book. With any great book made into a movie they did have to delete some things and tweak it a bit so they could get the main gist of the book across in the 2hour + time frame. A couple of those "tweaks" bothered me but not enough to take away from the greatness! I recommend it but not for younger kids!
We got home and into bed at 3:00 am Back up at 8:30, finished packing and loaded the cars (we have to take two) and headed on the road for our 8hr drive to Boise! Thank goodness the weather was great and AMAZINGLY I did fine with the drive. Normally a 2hr drive with me driving is my limit. I was a bit worried but extremely thankful I made it!
I made GREAT food choices on the drive. Our family's routine on a trip is LOTS of junk! I did pack a few for the cars but also packed yogurt, string cheese, carrots, broccoli, apples, little cuties, strawberries and almonds (protein shakes for me). No exercise in today. I wanted to go for a walk when I got to my brother's home but we did't arrive until 8:30pm and didn't feel I could ignore him and his family. Tomorrow I'll be waking up early and heading outdoors. I plan on getting two or three smaller workouts in between the 3 games that we have.
Goal for the trip...Have FUN and maintain!
