NJ is Shut Down!!!

Yes, leave it to mother nature to give us one last surprise before Springtime - another snowstorm!  Stella came in with a vengeance!  20+ inches in the tri-state area and super high winds.
Now that I live on the 9th floor, we really hear the wind.  Its crazy & scary all at once!


I stayed home and it kind of sucked because now I have one less sick day at my disposal.  There was no way I was going out in this blizzard, plus the governor did say that we were in a state of emergency so no non-emergency vehicles were to be out.

Aside from using my sick day, I had no problem staying home today.  I actually feel like I needed it.  I did absolutely NOTHING!  Nothing, nothing, nothing and I loved every second of it.  I made hot chocolate in the morning for my kids, then rented Step Up to watch with baby girl.  We watched Step Up Revolution the last night, so we were in the mood to watch how it all started.
After that I watched some youtube, worked out to my 21 Day Fix (can't skip a workout) and then took a nice, hot epsom salt & lush bomb bath!  Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh

It was lovely.
Then I was back in my pajamas....yes it was an all day pajama day.  I wasn't going anywhere so why get dressed!



Hubby went out to shovel snow and brought home some Chinese food, so we ate and then back to watching movies.  We started watching Blended on Vudu but the site must have been having issues - it kept buffering.  So we took that off and looked on Time Warner's On Demand and found Big Hero 6 so we rented it and now are watching that.

I'll be getting ready to sleep soon since tomorrow I will be off to work bright and early.  I just hope the streets are clean tomorrow!  

Hope any of you that were snowed in enjoyed your day!
Stay Safe!!

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…

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…

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.
