On My Holidays!

Saturday morning at a very early 7 am, we packed up our kids,sent the dogs to the grandparents, and headed on our holidays! Happy,happy,joy,joy! Two days of travel to get to St Catharines, to see my husbands side of the family.  We had already flown one child ahead of time, as hubby had business in Toronto, early on in the week.  Another stop in Montreal to pick up my oldest daughter and we were on our way. 

The drive was great and I had no problems finding healthy eats along the way. I had baked up a big batch of Cosmic cookies from Planet Organic to bring along too.  Fresh blueberries are very easy to find right now, so all was good in my little food world.

We arrived around supper time on Sunday evening and Chinese food was ordered in so we could all relax and enjoy each others company.  It had been two years since we had all been together.  Yummy it was,and I ate things that I shouldn't have, and wow what a difference in how I felt. It hit me so fast....bloated stomach and gassy,along with cramps.  It really proved to me, that when I don't eat properly, I will pay the price!
Needless to say I have watched every bite since!

I started week 4 of C25K and so proud of that.  I am sure I have mentioned before that I had done week one, a few times, and never had success.  This time I am LOVING IT!!!! Now it was a bit harder to do here in St Kitts, as the humidity is high,but believe me I was doing my best.

We were out doing tourist stuff this afternoon, when I got an email from Crystal at  OMG I won a bracelet......I was ecstatic.....I never win anything!!
This is what I won:

One bite at a time.
One decision at a time.  

Wow I love the bracelet and my favorite color is pink...doing my happy dance!

Everyone is in bed and sound asleep,so I am signing off to get some zzzzz's too! Big day tomorrow, as we are all going to Wonderland.  Thursday is visiting some wineries, and Friday the Science Centre in Toronto, and fingers crossed......The Eaton Centre!!!

PS Please take a look at Crystals website for a chance to win this book too! Operation Beautiful is a huge hit and I need to buy a cute pack of post it notes to start leaving my notes for women.


  1. I do the same thing when we travel - pack a cooler full of healthy foods. It really helps when you're trying to stay on track!

    I know exactly what you mean about the Chinese food (or any other greasy junky food for that matter.) You don't realize how badly it affects you until you haven't had it for awhile and see. Not fun.

    Congrats on getting out for your run even though you were on vacay, that's dedication!!! :)

  2. Glad you are having a wonderful time , travel safe and come back soon!
