After a short conversation late morning from work, we decided that I would take a half day (boss was away so that was not a big deal) and we would head to the Poconos. I got home and we packed like fugitives on the run. We were checked in and relaxing at the hotel by late afternoon. It was great! We didn't do too much over the weekend because it was really cold but not really snowy enough for tubing, etc. We spent some time by the hotel pool (which is always fun in the winter), game room and gym (for me at least). Each day I worked out with Warrior Princess Lisa in Peekskill (via Skype) as part of the Passover-Lent Off. Her classes are hardcore. With her on my side, this challenge is mine! (Insert evil laugh here)
It was a perfect weekend. And I stayed on track with my eating and brought enough snacks to keep me and the kids happy. My biggest challenge was finding something to eat for dinner on Friday (in Lent = no meat) in Red Robin. No bread, low fat AND I don't eat seafood. Solution: Veggie Burger (no bread) on a garden salad. Winning!!
|Ha Ha Mommy. My hot dog is better than your veggie burger salad.|
|Hubby looking at chicken coops. Yes, chicken coops. Don't ask.|
|The boys in the Candle Shop. Hubby reminiscing on life with hair.|
|Little Princess by the pool with her applesauce|
|Yummy. Bread. None for you Mommy!|
|Yes, I was taking pictures of the bread, and the kids are the background. :)|
Speaking of new things, I just signed up for my first obstacles challenge (or a date with a serial killer, not sure which one really), the Rugged Maniac in Brooklyn. I registered for this last year before I was injured. Anyone in the tri-state want to join me? I'm doing the 10 a.m. wave.
What will you try this week? How do you stay fit when you are away from home?
