Bob's Wild Strawberry Daiquiri & Margarita Mix is so berrylicious he couldn't risk getting stuck without his own personal stash when traveling. This 60 gram powdered packet makes 1/2 gallon (64 oz.) of mix.
Well, I did it. I woke up and actually ran… at a snail’s pace, but I did it! And it actually felt kinda sorta good. ;) I ran 2 miles. Now, I know that doesn’t sound like much, but we all gotta start somewhere, right? I first wanted to do the Couch to 5k plan on Cool Running, but, honestly, I have started that damn program a handful of times, and I never ever finish it. I get B O R E D. So, I hopped on over to SparkPeople, took a gander at some of their running programs I had saved from 2007 (no joke! LOL!), and then opted to do their 10k running plan. I originally thought I would do the 5k running plan, but I didn’t want to start with a ½ mile run. There are also walk/run programs on pages linked. Fun stuff!
ALSO, wooty woo, I managed to crank out some 60# DB bench presses yesterday. That is 60# per arm, so a total of 120… 120 on a BB is old news for me, but I’ve never tried to bench that heavy with dumbbells. YAY!
MORE FLORIDA FUN - DAY 2
WARNING: To say we got a little intoxicated this day would be an understatement. Early morning storms led us to the bar before noon. We are rebels, I tell ya!
Innocently, we started off at a car show.
which led to a bar... or two.
Then we went back to the room and cleaned up!
Water Taxi Ride:
Seriously. This is a house.
Check out my new friend. At this point, I was back to sober. Unbelievable.
Best. Food. Ever.
Hubby accidentally orders a $120 bottle of wine. LMAO. He doesn't even like wine much. Best damn wine ever!
On the way to the Pirate Bar. ARGH! This place was the shizz! We got to listen to Sublime all night long!
BWAHAHAHAHA. This cracked me up.
Does anyone else have problems with Blogger formatting things all funky, or even losing formatting code? URGH!
It's Monday, again. Seriously... time goes by way to quickly! Vacation was wonderful! As you can see, the weight bumped up quite a bit, although I am confident that a lot of it is water.

Okay, so I guess this works. Too bad I can't just text to BLOGGR like it says I should be able to. LOL!
Genie’s Green Monster
150g baby spinach
1 scoop protein powder (Chocolate Ultimate Muscle Provider by Beverly International or Chocolate by All they Whey)
And that’s it! It keeps my calories low enough that I still eat under maintenance, and I still get to eat a lot of greens! YUM!
The hubs and I are going on a mini vacation this evening. We're going to Fort Lauderdale until Sunday to enjoy some BEACH TIME! WOOTY WOO! (Becca, you gots me hooked on saying that. LOL) I have mass quantities of food packed, protein powder baggies (man I hope they don't think I am trying to smuggle drugs!), tuna packets, salmon packets, Clif bars (delicious treats!), clean carbs, etc. I even have my kitchen AND bathroom scale in tow. Gotta keep it real since I'm in prep... not to say that I might not enjoy a meal or two out, but I'd rather maintain, or at least keep it under 130, since weight loss tends to get very sticky for me at the sub 130 numbers. Ya wanna know what is MOST impressive? I've packed all this stuff in carry-on only! I have never tried to pack so much food (and junk) to bring as a carry-on. My suitcase and personal bag are designed for carry-on, but I'm nervous. AND, I just know they are gonna think I am a nutjob when they check my bags. HA! Oh well.
Pics of the food stash:
Unfortunately, our hotel does not have free wireless, so today I will try to figure out how to blog from my phone, via text. If you have any tips please let me know! :) I guess I could blog via email on my phone, too!
And here are some pics of some recipes that I have been working on! :) These are two different batches of CLEAN, contest prep safe muffins... I think they will be almost perfect after a couple minor tweaks.
Later dudes! :)
