It's official, we have scheduled our getaway with our best buds, Chris and Angela! Thanks to our crappy economy and the wonderful thing called "debt", we have decided to keep our destination in the lower 48 states and save Maui until next year. In the meantime, we still wanted to head somewhere warm, inexpensive, and where we could find some great entertainment and still lay by a pool...and thats when we came up with...
We are all so excited, we've all been before but neither of us have had a kid free vacation in a long time! We will be leaving the first week of April but will get back in time for Easter egg hunts on Saturday (we're leaving the week of Easter)...we are going to drive down and make it a little mini road trip! Their van has gps and a dvd player...we always have a blast when we're together so this should prove to be a roarin' good time! We will each drive for 4 hours and stop for meals and pit stops, with gas prices as low as they are, it works out to only 35.00 per person each way...so much cheaper (and more fun) than flying!
We will be at the MGM Grand and have found rooms for under 60.00/night, so as you can see, this wont be a budget buster! Thankfully, we have some amazing family that will be watching the kiddos and we know they will be taken care of!
The real meaning of this post is because of my urgent need to shed some pounds, I have joined a mini weight loss group with some close friends! We are all doing Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred... I had first heard about it from Amy and Pam but I very quickly realized that I know a bunch of people doing this dvd (and they are all loving it, and seeing results). I started it today and can definatley feel the burn! As I workout, I will text Amy and Pam and they will do the same so we all keep tabs on each other...Pam gives us a sticker and once we reach 30 stickers we'll reward ourselves! I am hopeful that through dedication and better eating, I can look and feel better on our trip!
So...here's to no more junk food, big portion sizes, less soda and eating late at night!
...and bring on the breakfasts!
Let's get shredded!
