Fun Facts Friday - Traveling

Since I'm currently traveling, I thought a travel theme was appropriate for Fun Facts Friday. Brilliant idea right ;-)

I do enjoy traveling, but don't get to do so nearly as much as I'd really like. Somehow money and lack of time off seem to get in the way. Don't you just hate that?


  • I hate to fly, but I'll suck it up and even flew in a 4-seater piloted by a friend
Me on a 4-seater
  • I almost always over-pack, exception is the beach
  • I must hit the beach at least once a year
Perdido Key, FL

  • I hope to go to Italy one day
  • This is my first time to California
  • I've been on 2 cruises and I do get seasick by the way
  • Wine country is also on my list of places to visit
  • I have learned to try to go with the flow rather than over-plan
  • I do still try to stay active when I travel 
  • We always try to go to local restaurants vs chains
Karyn's Cooked in Chicago
  •  I love Seattle and Chicago, and Philly was pretty enjoyable as well I must add
Seattle
  • I've not been to many big cities other than those listed above (and Dallas, Atlanta, Houston)
  • I have a list of cities I want to see for fun and to meet blogger friends like Austin and Atlanta 

What are some of your favorite cities to visit or maybe some on your travel bucket list? Do you try to plan out your vacation activities or do you just wing it when you get there?

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too

Hitting the Gym and Lazy Means Creative Tex-Mex Creation

Sunday, Gym Day Why do vacations and min-vacations go by so quickly? Just doesn't seem quite right. Anyway, we left Branson around 9:30 am to head back home. It was a pretty uneventful drive back, which is usually a good thing. We got home and unpacked, then I headed up to the gym. I started with a 10-minute treadmill run to warm up before hitting the weights for back and light legs then abs. I went with a giant set for back then supersets for legs. GS - 4x8 Underhand barbell rows Pullovers Double-arm rows SS#1 Rear-leg elevated lunges (Bulgarian Split Squats) - 3x8 Calf raises - 3x20 SS#2 - 2x8 Walking lunges Plie squats with low-end pulse Single-leg deadlifts - 2x8 I did some ab exercises, stretched, and called it quits. Lazy = Crazy Dinner I may have made it to the gym and washed a few loads of laundry, but I never made it to the grocery store - lounging in the pool trumped grocery shopping. This meant getting creative with dinner. We had another package
