Well loves, I'm back! I got up extra early this morning to spend some time catching up on your blogs and leaving comments, so feel honored. Actually, I've been a bit of a freak of nature so far this morning. I may or may not have been up since 5am, already worked out, gotten ready for work, packed my lunches for the week, etc. There's no stopping me right now!
Jess and I had a great weekend getaway in the Keys Friday-last night. It was a much needed trip we'd been planning since a real downer of a week a while back. We'd been anxiously counting down the days and by the time noon rolled around on Friday we were like antsy preschoolers going on a field trip.
The drive down took most of Friday and when we arrived we hung out with the Bakers, close family friends of Jess's family who were in town just for one more night. They were a real trip and had us in giggles for most of the night. I did a 'ghetto workout' with my portable DVD player, some workout vids, and a pair of dumbbells I managed to pack (yes, I'm a freak). We climbed in bed early and watched an episode of Season One of Gossip Girl before passing out.
Saturday we spent a glorious day on the beach. Literally. All day. Basking in the sun and sitting in the shallow water catching up on life.
When we returned to the room I decided to pound some pavement before dinner. I took to the sidewalks and tried to survive the Keys wildlife complete with scorpions and an iguana that would have taken me in a fight.
But hey, you know my motto - results don't come for free! So pound that pavement I did. I ran again Sunday morning before our final day at the beach. I'm trying to stay focused on getting those results I keep promising myself. No days off, even on vacay peeps - let's do this.
I did finally get to wear the hot pink Rebecca Taylor dress I told you all about when we went to dinner that night:
It looks about 100 times better after the $3 alterations job I had done on it. Cha-ching. Please ignore however, that my legs look redic in this photo. I look like I'm about to kick a puppy, or dominate a triathlon instead of just stuff my face with grilled mahi mahi, like I did.
This weekend was just what the doctor ordered but I've come back now to what promises to be an intense week. 5:30am workouts, going into the office an hour early, that dreaded appointment with a GI specialist on Thursday and then...
Well, should I tell you? Hmm...
A trip to South Carolina with someone special. : ] I'm being a wedding date for 4 wedding festivities. Should be a great roadtrip and I'm super excited.
Hope you all had great weekends as well.
