Fun Crazy Busy Weekends~It's Over!

Well, our busy baseball weekends are over but we still have a few weekends left in August to enjoy!  We spent the rest of the weekends with friends and just us 4 doing what we love - hanging out and going down the shore!

One weekend we had a girls sleep over~Fun!!


With some pool time the next day :)


We still made time to work out~I am training for a half marathon (what was I thinking!)



Squeezed in some back to school shopping.....


Shore moments.....these are the best times!!




Making our workouts fun by bike riding, love riding here at Libert State Park!




Had to stop here at the 9/11 Memorial for all the New Jersey residents who lost their lives that day




Another day at the shore - first time I rode the swings, EVER!! 



It wasn't bad, LOL

Feeding geese while big brother works on his pitching




Another day at the shore with friends!


and they managed to get me on this thing....OMG


I was freaking out but trying to be brave for baby girl!


I was sick the rest of the day, ugh, this ride turned my stomach.

Now it was hubby's turn....but he likes this stuff!


Well.....this pretty much wraps up our summer.  No week long vacation, only weekend getaways for baseball.  I'm not complaining, we really enjoyed all weekends and finally got to visit Gatlinburg, TN even though it was only for a few days!

Hope you all had a summer to remember......these memories will last a lifetime!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.














After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.


New Week~New Program

Here we go!!  I took a week off to regroup and decide what to do next.  I really have to say that having Beach Body on Demand is the BEST!!!

There are so many programs and nutrition plans to follow.  So since I recently completed Transform 20, I was thinking of doing it again, but I've been curious about 80 Day Obsession for quite some time.  I haven't attempted this program because at first, I felt it wasn't for me.  The workouts are longer than I'm used to and the timed nutrition is challenging for me, but I finally let curiosity get the best of me.  I'm going to give it a shot!

I started Sunday with my meal prep!  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but I followed the sample nutrition plan and was able to get my shopping list and meals put together.



So for my first week, I have every meal planned out.  Not prepared, since I'd rather make my eggs for breakfast fresh each morning.  Most of my meals have been prepped!

My days are set to begin at 4:30AM with my sh…
