Making Time For Play

People often make comments about this being a “year-long vacation” but I can assure you it’s quite far from that. Yes we are making sure to take time to enjoy our constantly changing surroundings, we’re definitely working our tails off more often than not. But with that said, one of my favorite things is that not only do we get to meet new friends but we get to see friends who live far away when we come through their area.

And over the weekend, I got to see one of my super close friends, Brittany and meet my little blog-nephew Baby Delight! :)

Somehow Brittany and I made it through the weekend without getting a picture of the two of us (gasp!) but we did get one of Sam, Clare and I at dinner Friday night. Un-pictured obviously being Brittany and Baby Delight.

The weekend also meant a lot of great coffee so you know I was loving that! Saturday Brittany took us to Quills which is a favorite of theirs and it definitely did not disappoint!

Then yesterday before leaving town, Sam and I decided to visit Churchill Downs before leaving the area but first we decided to get a little work done and were recommended to stop at Sunergos Coffee which wasn’t far. While the internet was slow as molasses and made work hard, the coffee was delicious so I made sure to leave with a bag I can brew in the RV.

After leaving coffee, we made our way to Churchill Downs to see where the Kentucky Derby takes place. That place is massive, beautiful and really cool! Sam and I took a tour and wandered around the museum for a bit.

But let’s get real…we also played around some.

Because deep down we’re really just kids at heart.

It’s not always fun and games but were getting better about making time for fun, relaxation and of course, visiting friends we don’t get to see often.

I hope you all had a great weekend as well and have a marvelous Monday!

What’d you do this weekend?

Weekly Workouts 12/5-12/11

It’s been another week where I’ve struggled to fit my workouts in. Between the RV needing some extra attention, being in colder areas and thus outdoor runs not sounding as appealing, and making time for some fun and much needed extra sleep, my workouts just haven’t been happening quite as much as I’d like. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s less about the number of workouts and more about how my body handles the stress when I’m staying consistent.

With starting the 24 Day Challenge in January, I’m going to do more than just focus on clean eating, it’s about my overall health – active lifestyle, clean eats, and positive mentality.
