Back to Reality

First off, I want to say a big "Thank You" to all of the guest bloggers from last week. They covered some great topics so if you missed something, I definitely encourage you to go back and check them out.

Also I want to say "Welcome" to anyone who found my blog through one of my guest posters! I really enjoyed reading through all of your comments. And just as soon as I'm done playing catch up I'll make sure to drop by your blogs and say "Hi!"

Vacation was wonderful and after all the stress from two weeks ago about how we were going to get to Florida and avoid the snow, it was much needed.

I promise to give a better recap later after I've sorted through the 400+ pictures I took, but here are some quick highlights.

I managed to get in three treadmill runs without any hip pain!

Running on a treadmill on a moving boat that is rocking back and forth in the water is not easy.

I ate tons and tons of yummy food and somehow managed to not gain a single pound. Post on tips and tricks for not gaining weight on vacation coming later this week.

I climbed the rock wall.

I didn't sunburn! Major thanks to the SPF 50 for that one.

I promise more wonderful details later, but right now my car is buried under about four feet of snow and I have no food in my house. Off to shovel and grocery shop. What a wonderful welcome home present for me!
