No Shoes, No Shirt, No Gym, No Problem

This awesome cover just pulls ya in, doesn't it?

Halo from Aruba! OK, I don’t know how much longer I can keep up the postings. I’m straight up exhausted in the evenings and the island Internet can be suspect at times. We’ve snorkled, swam and party bus-ed. It is absolutely refreshing to be on the island, the water is a blue I’ve never seen. Pics will come when we return to the mainland.

In addition the Runner’s World: Complete Book of Women’s Running book I have been reading, Andrew also picked out Chris Carmichael’s Food for Fitness: Eat Right to Train Right. Chris is the fellow that coached Lance Armstrong, he’s legit to say the least. Reading about nutrition is a bit like sending someone to rehab. I know what I should be doing but this book is needed tough love.

Oddly enough, it’s been tough not going to the gym every morning. I know, I’m certifiable. Routine is a routine, but Andrew is making sure I’m making the most of my workouts here in Aruba. I still run in the AM, running the beach has been gorgeous. I then get in a few swimming lessons with the hubs. It’s tough. I have zip natural h2o ability but we’re trying. I’ve swallowed enough salt water to sink a ship. Ick.

With the sand in my toes and a float under me, I’ll catch y’all later. Keep doing what you’re doing!

If you have any vacation workout tips, I’m all ears.
