So I left bright and early Tuesday morning the 11th and didn't make it home until late Tuesday the 18th... well, so late in fact that it was Wednesday the 19th by the time I made it home. My first flight got delayed which made me miss my second flight so I had a 5 hour layover waiting on another flight back home that night. It wasn't too bad though because that was jsut extra time I got to spend with Laura since we both had layovers before heading back to our homes. :)
This is Stef (aka Ziona) with her son Sebastian-2 (aka Basha), Laura with her daughter Kristany-20 months (aka Punky), and of course me with my son Jett-3!
Z is one of the most awesome friends you could ever ask for by the way and so you should all totally check out her blog and become a follower right now!! ;)
We had a blast! Spent the week just hanging out and seeing all sorts of cool things in South Carolina. There was a trip to the Zoo and even a Kazoo factory. We also walked around downtown and shopped til our hearts content. We got to pick pumpkins in a pumpkin patch and went on a horse drawn carriage ride!
Basha was totally enthralled with me, as I was him! <3
and this is one of the dresses I ended up buying while crusing shops downtown. Got this on sale for 9.99 at a store called Totally Beachin!
I originally intended to post a few more pics for you guys to see... but I'm too tired/lazy to do that right now so this is all you get. lol. This is me and Jett after packing up and getting ready to head back to the airport.
My dad picked us up from the airport and informed me that a package had arrived in the mail for me while I was gone! He said it was from bodyglide and he had heard about them when he went to Disney World last year so he went ahead and opened up my box! lol. Anyways... it had some really cool stuff in it that I won from the Shrinkvivor contest going on over at Shrinkingjeans.net during week 1!
I got a hat and 4 awesome little packages of stuff. It basically is to help you stay dry and keep you from getting chaffed while running, etc. Its like deodorant/anti-perspirant, but for your entire body! :) I can't wait to use this stuff!
Speaking of Shrinkvivor though... I was voted to exhile island today by my tribe. :( So looks like I'm out of the competition. Oh well.. good luck to the rest of White Team! And of course Bonnie, if you're still in, I'm rooting for ya! I've been pretty fail at reading blogs and staying caught up this past week being gone on vacation and not wanting to waste too much time online.
In much better news though, I stepped on the scale today and saw this number...
I weighed in for weigh-in Wednesday at Stef's house being 181 last week. It's really nice to have been able to go away on vacation, eat whatever I wanted, but still make sure I get in enough exercise time to keep on track and still lose weight! This only proves to me that I am much stronger than I give myself credit for and that I can live this way now and forever as long as I continue to put forth the effort! <3
In even more exciting news for myself... I am 2/3 of the way through week 6 of the couch to 5k plan! I did all of week 5 while on vacation, too! What's that you say? Oh yeah, I know, I'm a total badass! *dances* WOOT WOOT! haha. I made it through 20 minutes of straight jogging the day before I left South Carolina! Crazy! And I even started on week 6 day 1, the morning before I got on my plane and left to head back home to Texas!!! I did day 2 yesterday and plan on getting out there for day 3 at some point tomorrow! :) I'm so excited... After that I'll only have 3 weeks left! The weather has been absolutely great for running, too! When I left it was still hot here, but now that I've came back home I have had to completely shut off my air conditioner and even bring out my space heater for night time. I have also been wearing long sleeves everyday! This is pretty crazy it seems. lol. We just got over one of the historically hottest summers ever here and now its getting freezing really fast I believe! It's hard to tell though becuase I get cold a lot easier now than I used to. lol
