Last week before a tropical vacation

The countdown has begun.  I packed my suitcase this weekend, made all the necessary trips to Ulta to buy travel sized cosmetics and shampoo and tanning lotion!  I even bought a new bathing suit.  No pictures, sorry....  Anyway, 4 more days and I'll be in paradise with my DH!!!  I packed a lot of beautiful lingerie that he's bought me over the years, always too small to fit.  I can wear most of them now and its  like shopping at Victoria's Secret without all the cost!  TMI, I know.  But I'm really excited.

I've not done a great job working out, my work days have been extremely long - didn't leave work until  630 tonight even though I went in early.  I'm thanking my lucky stars that I've made it to March 2013 and am still saving according to plan!  9 more months until I can be truly free.  6 more months after that and I'll have saved enough to buy the luxuries I've always really wanted but don't want to spend $$ on:
1. Tummy tuck
2.  New couch and chairs (I love to decorate)
3.  Stand up paddle board
4.  various home improvement projects

I've still got some knee pain but I'm ready to get in gear and increase my running schedule.  I need to get the miles increased and get the time in.  I'm sitting still - not gaining or losing - so I need to increase the exercise.  And I'm ready to do that.  Changing the time has really helped-I love all this daylight in the afternoon/evenings!!  That will allow me to go for runs when I get home from work b/c it will still be light out.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Just getting through the week

Hope you all are having a great week.  I've been busy cleaning since my mom will be staying at my house to watch the kids in 2 weeks while hubby and I enjoy Mexico with friends.  I do feel a little guilty leaving the kids at home, but I also know I would only be happy with my Mom here.  Knowing she's going to be here puts my mind at ease.  The place we're staying (perhaps all places do this  now) offers unlimited calls to the US for free.  So I can call anytime and talk as long as I want without fear of an outrageous bill.

I still have so much to do to prepare to leave.  Not just packing, but getting all the kids stuff ready so my mom doesn't have to do much at all.  Washing all their clothes, buying all their meals, buying stuff for the kids lunches, etc.  But I'm happily doing it knowing in just a couple of weeks, I'll be poolside!

I've not found many clothes to take with me.  I can't find anything cute and I don't feel very cute with these extra 15 lbs on me.  Only my bigger shorts fit and my shirts just don't feel as good since I gain in my stomach.

I've hurt my other knee and hamstring- now that the one that gives me trouble is all good.  So, I've not been running.  No excuses, I need to figure some other sort of exercise out.  I've got weights under my desk at work and a yoga mat.  I could easily do planks and arm work while sitting at my desk or on conference calls.  Every little bit counts!

Have a great week everyone!
