Oh No She Didn't?

Oh yes she did!  She booked a trip to MEXICO!  Just so we're clear, the she would be referring to me

And like soon.  Well, in a little over a month, which is really not soon enough because I've been checking my daily countdown reminder, not daily, but hourly.  Are we there yet?  Are we there yet?  How about now?  Nowwww?  Yup, I was one of those kids and apparently I haven't outgrown that quality quite yet.  This time, though, instead of torturing my parents with those questions, I get to torture Todd and our two friends who are going with us.  But I'm just too excited.  And when you're really excited about something, it's pretty much mandatory to blog about it.  So here I am shouting it from the roof top over the internet.

My mind right now has been consumed with nothing but trip related things.  And my poor body has been consumed with nothing but rabbit food and evil gym sessions that have left me unable to walk for days.  3 days, to be exact. Walking up the stairs and squatting to pee has been next to impossible, but other than that I'm feeling great!  Who needs feeling in their legs, anyways?  I will tell you, though, that if I could move my legs, I'd kick myself for putting on a little holiday weight. Although i did enjoy what caused it.  Just not the end result. But what better way to try and get it off then by planning a trip where clothing requirements are next to nothing.  And besides, I'm a firm believer that you enjoy everything so much more when you feel great!  Am I right, or am I right?

Speaking of losing weight, right after we booked our trip I caught myself typing these words:


Don't laugh!  Or yes, please do so because I'm laughing at myself right now. But, aren't you the slightest bit curious to know what I found out?  I know you are. Okay, so the first site I opened mentioned something about an eating disorder. Um, exit.  The second site rambled on about how you should only lose 1-2 pounds per week for it to be a healthy weight loss.  Yada, yada, I know, I know.  Exit.  And then there was the third site I opened which listed six tips to lose 10 pounds in a month.  Close enough I thought, so I continued to read until I got to the first two suggestions: get more sleep and go for brisk walks.  Seriously?  If those tips were true, Google, then I really wouldn't have needed to ask you that question in the first place. And, exit.  Silly, silly me.  

Well, that's pretty much all of the news I have for you today, but in my defence I thought it was pretty important news. But, if you don't think so, well then how about IT'S FRIDAY!  That's always good news. We're going out to dinner tonight to celebrate Todd's birthday and you better believe that I'll be eating every last bite on my plate and quite possibly dessert. That's one of the plus sides of eating super good over the last few weeks, it makes having a treat that much more enjoyable. 

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to practice how to perfect the fishtail braid and find stores that sell summer clothes this time of year. Suggestions? Please don't tell me to google it. I will tell you one thing I don't need to do and that's practice how to do absolutely nothing but relax for an entire week on vacation. I definitely got that one covered!



Have a great weekend!!

  14. ohhh you made all of your followers very jealous with this post!! I'm sure you experience cold temperatures all too often in Canada, but we have been stuck in the single digits and below freezing for weeks and I literally get MAD when I have to go outside. I would do just about anything to hitch a ride to Mexico with you!!
