I'm so excited!  I'm traveling this week.  ROAD TRIP!  My sister had a baby, so my sister-in-law and I are heading to Indiana.  I seriously haven't left the state of Nebraska since Easter...so this is a much needed break.  Why 'leave the state of Nebraska?' .... well, I know about four people here and everyone else is far away.   I can't wait to see my sister, my mom and dad and some of my nieces and nephews.  Anyway, my sister-in-law, Teresa is about eight hours west of here, in Colorado.  So, she'll leave Thursday morning and head here.  It's funny, I live about five miles from Interstate 80, so she and my sweet niece will come here, spend the night and we'll leave on Friday morning.  I'M GOING TO INDIANA, I'M SO HAPPY!!  

But, I'm also worried.   I'm worried about my eating choices, I know this five day getaway will NOT derail me from my fitness and Weight Watchers goals (but there’s so many restaurants there I love, and so many margaritas and so much wine.)  I *do* know when I get home; it will be as though I never left.  I'll easily slip back into the daily routines I have created over the last 4-5 months.  Also, proactively, I did chat with my Mom and Teresa and we know like it's not even a question that we will be running.  Teresa is now a running addict – I so love that!  I'm really excited to finally have some running partners, how motivating!  In fact, I'm thinking maybe of Teresa and me getting up early on Friday and hitting the road before we even leave - shhhhhh, don't tell her.  I think that would be totally bad-ass.  I'd also love to Shred...oops, did I say that?  Hey, as long as I'm running...I'm happy with that.  Oh, and something else that makes me happy?  Meeting my new, beautiful niece. 

and today's little motivation piece...I may be 'busy' in Indiana, but I won't be too busy. 


  1. Yay! Safe travels, happy running, and baby snuggling!

  2. 1. If we keep each other accountable then we can definitely fill our goodie bag in the car with healthy choices. I'm all for that!
    2.I have become a little bit of an addict. It's the eating part I need motivation on!
    3. How about we shoot for a morning run and then see how we feel before I shred???? *gasp* OR we could do yoga (or yogurt as Dan calls it) and be all zen and stuff before we go????
    4. Can't wait to see you!!

  3. 1. so that means we can have 987 diet cokes and 6 pounds of pistachios, yes?

    2. Yes, you're a running fool! Sometimes I think when we exercise (run) a lot, we can eat more. *i wish*

    3. I'd love to try a real yogurt class! With extra nuts and whipped cream.

    4. Can't wait to see you, too!

    1. Maybe 988 diet cokes- it is our mini-vaca
    2. I know that I think I can eat like Grant after a run- so stupid
    3. I don't even know how to respond to that except laugh really hard
    4. This will be a great road trip!

  5. I'm so excited that you're both coming AND bringing sweet Tessa. I can't wait. I know you'll stay on track and have an awesome time too. After all, you'll have each other for some inspiration, accountability, and exercise partnership. And when you get home, you'll get really serious again.
