Back from my Vacation

Posted by Active_Jess on Jan 30, 2009 12:17:38 PM


Well, for the first time since 2005, I took a real vacation.  I went down the Florida Keys with "Soozal" the newest King40 in the IRC II class.  Most of you are asking what is this?  In short - it is a premiere sailboat that is 40' feet long, fully equipped with the highest level of state of the art mechanics and was sailed by some of the most elite sailors in the world.






We were gone for a total of 14 days - and it was amazing.  Although the weather wasn't as nice as we were hoping, it still made for a great trip.  Once of the coolest things about Key West is that you never drive your car!  We rode bikes everyday, everywhere we went.  It was Nora's first time on the bike and her helmet didn't fit very well so, I was a little hesitant at first. She fell in love with it and pretty soon, I was hearing "Momma bicycle ride" every other minute.  We ate home-cooked meals (made by me and husband and 13 other crew members) so I knew what I was eating and snacking on all the time.  There were the occasional days out to eat once the crew went home and it was just my parents and my family in Key West....but hey, we were on vacation right?









I did walk a lot and rode my bike all the time, so I feel like I was able to keep up my routine.  Becasue it was more or a less a working vacation (cooking every meal for a crew of 13 hungry sailors) I wasn't able to stick to my running routine they way that I had hoped.  Tomorrow morning it is back to SET at 24Hr Fitness and then a good run on Sunday before the Superbowl.  We are HUGE football fans at our house and I don;t know about you, but we are doing what ever superbowl party does and snacking basically all day.  I will do my best to avoid the temptations while the rest of the house indulges :  )
