O.K. I’m officially deciding to blog once a week on Fridays!! Let’s see if I can keep this up! Today is all about our Laguna Niguel trip!! We had a great time! Staying at the Ritz Carlton all week made me feel completely out of touch with the world. How nice to have water given to you all day long and someone to clean your room nearly three times a day while leaving chocolates on your bed. Not to mention how beautiful the surroundings are!! I took these pictures off the internet, but it looked exactly like this:
Lucky me, the weather wasn’t my favorite. Everyone kept talking about the 80-90 degree heat wave that we’d just missed the week before. It was mostly cloudy with a few sun bursts here and there. Every morning and night I’d wrap up in a blanket and sit by the fire!
This is a view of the hotel and the path that I’d run down. The glass part of the hotel was the gym. It overlooked the ocean. I’d workout and watch the surfers! I loved running at sea level and feeling like a hot shot! This morning as I ran back home with my friends I realized how much of a hot shot I am not! I did get a good 4, 9.5, and a 5 miler in this week. I’m hoping to get another 6 miler tomorrow!! I’m crash running for my 1/2 marathon next Saturday! I’m looking forward to it. My sister is running it too and we haven’t ran a race together in a long time!!!
Here are a few selfies from the trip in the fancy pants bathroom. I love my little birdie swim cover up! The second one is an outfit a 17 year old would wear! My husband picked that one out for me to wear around Laguna Beach! Oh geez!! I’m too old for that (: The last one is my LBD for the fancy party that we had on the last night.
My favorite day was the 1st day because of the anticipation for the rest of the week!! I always think that way (: Love anticipation! Here are the rest of our pictures! I loved the fancy theater we went to one day! It had reclining chairs and they served you food. Very fun. We saw the movie Age of Adeline, which I loved too!
One of these days I’ll get a better camera too (: O.K. we made it back home last night. I’m all confused getting back into the groove of things! I felt like it was Monday! I had to be reminded again about what I do all day! Laundry, dishes, driving children all over the world (: It’s always good to come home!
I slid off my eating regimen near the end of the trip, but I’ll get back on! I’ve loved my healthy challenge that I’m doing with my friends. It’s fun to hear of everyone’s successes! Next week, I’ll be concentrating on my 1/2!! I love running, but I think I like lifting more! My body changes more with weights! Last week I had my body composition done at the gym! I was surprised when my body fat came in at 14.3%. It actually suggested that I gain body fat!! HAHAHAHAHAHA! It showed all sorts of numbers and stats too! Interesting!
That’s all I got for today!! I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend celebrating Mom’s day!!! Make a yummmy treat with lots of Sugar in it!! (: And then tell yourself this:
Oh HOLL, that trip sounds heavenly! The beach, your runs, the gym at the hotel, that fire, the recliners at the theater….HEAVEN! You look gorgeous in every picture! I’m glad you’re home and I’m excited to run our race. You can feel like a hot shot again….since you will smoke me, lol!
Thanks Mel! It was amazing! I highly doubt I will be smoking’ you though!! It’s going to be FUN!!
