Since I will be busy until we leave on Sunday, I’ll just make a quick list of how I plan to be as healthy as possible while still having a great time.
I will try to stick to my Disney Half training plan as best I can and if I don’t have time to run (some excursions start at 7AM!) I’ll fit in some exercise later on in the day.
I will be walking as much as possible and taking advantage of the gym while on board.
For the excursions, Todd and I always sign up for the hiking/kayaking tours so I know I’ll get some exercise in. I always move a lot more during vacation because we’re out doing things and not glued to the computer for 8+ hours a day like I am at work.
Waterfall Hike in Hawaii
Hike on Deer Island near Mazatlan
4X4 Ride Around Cabo San Lucas, it was very
dusty so we had to wear these bandanas around our faces!
So, I’m not worried about the exercise part at all. It’s the all-you-can-eat buffets! From past experience, I know there are plenty of opportunities to be healthy. Like picking salads and fruit instead of burgers and fries, so I just have to put my mind in healthy vacation mode. Luckily, Todd will be there to make sure I don’t go too overboard
I always come back from vacation feeling more refreshed and energized, I hope this one is no exception!
Have a great two weeks!
Five Facts About Kahlua
I saw Caitlin’s post yesterday about her dog James, and thought it would be a nice to list five facts about our own dog, Kahlua. October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and by coincidence, we adopted her last October from the local Humane Society.
She had been there for almost 3 months, had a few potential adopters, but nothing went through until we came along and immediately fell in love with her.
She’s our own personal bed warmer. She likes to lie as close as possible to us, and sometimes comes close to pushing us off the bed!
We were told she was a Schipperke mix, but we’re not sure. We think there may also be some Terrier and Whippet in there. We have thought about getting a DNA test, but decided we would wait a little while.
She has black spots on her tongue and can catch just about any treat from a good distance. It took about 20 minutes and lots of scratches on my arms to teach her how to roll over.
She doesn’t care much for other dogs, except one. Our friend’s dog Stitch. We call him her boyfriend because he is the only dog that she gets along with. We have tried socializing her with classes and other family dogs, but no luck so far. We won’t give up though.
If she gets too anxious in the car, she drools…..a lot. Which is why we always have to put a towel and sheet down. She never drools anywhere else.
And, of course, she loves to run!
