Well that was fun!

I had a BLAST this weekend.  We went to the beach, Disney World and played pool volleyball. 
Here are a few photos of the fantastic weekend!

Beach on Saturday.  Thousands of jellyfish (eek!) in the water meant we were kind of bored.  I am not so much a beach person due to the fact that I can't sit still for very long, but enjoyed walking around in the sun!  The right hand photo was my awesome attempt at faux surfing and my hubby's awesome attempt at photographing.  BTW, what is up with that gap in my arm, weird.

 On left - Trying on hats at Ron Jon's at Cocoa Beach.  I felt that this hat really added a sense of grace and charm to the hubby's facade.  Hehehe.
On Right - A CHICKEN at a GAS STATION!?  This was weird AND awesome.

Sunday at Disney World = Magical Fantastic Wonderfulness and the coolest mountains EVER (i.e. Space, Splash, Thunder). There is totally a kid staring at me and my SIL while petting the horse ghosty thingy at the Haunted Mansion (this is totally normal, nothing to see, move along move along!)
So anymway, my happy ride is Space Mountain...and I am not sure I had a sad one........but...well...

Ok ok, so from the opening of the park to lunch I might have looked like this.  ONLY because I got something in my eye and just followed around the group half blind.  The first aid told me I should think about going to the emergency room...but I was NOT leaving...and when it finally cleared up, I got to re-ride all the stuff that I missed the first go 'round, so win-win(ish)! 
Yup, we had some fun AND I lost 3 pounds, WHAT!?
I decided to pickup the Paleo Solution just to remind myself to eat better.  Well I found it pretty interesting and tried it out (for the most part...ok ok I had some ice cream, whoops)....but it seemed to work and now I am 19.5 pounds down from my heavy weight!  Yaay.

Alright lunch is over, back to work and then some P90X tonight!

I'm Going to Disneyworld!

Yay for long weekends!  My hubby and I try to eek out all the possible time we can out of vacations.  So far this year we have been to Portland, Seattle, San Antonio, New Orleans, Houston (if that counts because we live an hour away) and Indiana (New Years...I am only putting Indiana because if I just put the city you would have no idea where that is).

We LOVE to travel.  Last year we went to Tokyo for our big trip and this year we are thinking we will do Germany, Czech Republic, and Poland (or some combination of those). 

My biggest concern is obviously food.  Vacation means fun and free of concern, but I want to be SKINNY HEALTHY!  So it is hard to just go crazy!  I thought about stopping and getting some protein bars, but really the best would be to purchase some fruits and healthy things once we get there, right? We are staying with family friends though and I hate to impose.  I guess I will just try to track calories and hope for the best!  Although I might have to find some dip n' dots along the way!

Alright!  Well I am off to Disneyworld see you on Tuesday!
 Austin, TX and margaritas...yummy!  I might be just a smidge smaller now, but I really like this photo (I am rocking some $9.99 Miley Cyrus Sunglasses here...lol!).  It wasn't until the next trip to the same place that I realized how many calories are in a margarita...eek!  Oh but they are delicious you say?  Ok I'll take another :)

The Ol' Bloggie Try Part 2

Hello Internets!

Alright, well I tried to have a crafty/cool person's blog, but then I got bored of crafting and deleted all my posts!  Since I change hobbies every six months, perhaps I should just leave this blog open to whatever flight of fancy has taken me. 

My new hobby is obsessing about fitness and health.  I have become addicted to running blogs (even though I don't run very much or very fast!) and general fitness blogs and I wanna join in the fun! 

My biggest blog concern is that I am a pretty private person, but I have this intense desire to break out of my shell and tell people all about my life!  As I am sure all of you care and are clutching the side of your desk for my next words...ha.  Actually I am pretty sure if anyone reads this I will get all embarrassed and flustered, but I will make the best of it!  I am not always sure about bloggie etiquette so feel free to correct me if I make a mistake (nicely please!) but here I go!

5 Things about me!

1.  I was just diagnosed yesterday with MVP (Mitral Valve Prolapse) which is apparently something different depending on which website you go to...Known as
a Heart Condition
a Heart Problem
a Heart Disease
my favorite, floppy valve syndrome! hehehe.
...the other part of this is that one website said it affected thin women (wahoo they called me thin!), but then another website said that it mostly affected men over the age of 50, so I will take it with a grain of salt!

2.  I have lost 16 pounds from my wedding 2.5ish years ago!  Granted I had put on 20 pounds when I first met my hubby so...I have a little more weight loss to go, but I would say that I am pretty happy at my current fat skinny weight right now (I just don't want a tummy bulge when I sit down, that is my main goal!)

3.  I have tried so many types of workout and am currently doing P90X! It is intense but fantastic so far!  Ok so I am only on day 2 and there is a possibility I can't do it again until Tuesday....but I am SORE! 

4.  I am allergic to soy, tree nuts, hops and summer squash (I think there are a few more, but who knows!).  I tend to keep free of all of these for the most part...well not hops, since my hubby is a home brewer and I am required by holy wedded law to drink his beer and like it :)  Don't worry I keep the epi pen close.......and my beer closer :)

5. I just really super hope I can actually keep a blog up to date!  So far I would say I am a blog failure, but hey I can always wipe it clean and start fresh (third times a charm right!?  Maybe I will blog about basket weaving or scuba diving next! Haha, yay for loads of hobbies!)

Aaaandddd... because I think posts need fun things to look at as a reward for reading all my words...

My pupster Barley!  Currently being groomed as we speak, even though he is 2.5 years old, he is about to look like a lab puppy!  In this photo he looks like the mix breed possibly scottie and chow mishmash (I typed this into Word to see if it really was a word and it didn't correct me, so I am pretty happy with it) that he is.  Yep that is a black/purple/dirty tongue!
