Great News and Not so Great

Are you excited to start this challenge? I am! I had big plans today to get my miles in. That was until 4:30 AM rolled around and the 6 year old has been puking non stop since. I've learned as a mom that things usually don't go as planned. I've tried to remember that especially with my exercising. I can adjust. I'll find sometime today to get my miles in. Even if it's when the baby is taking a nap and I have to hop on the dreadmill, oh I mean treadmill.

I am so excited that these have finally arrived. They are Trainer Momma's favorite adjustable dumbbell set and I have been eyeing them since last September. My husband got a gift certificate at work and has known that I've wanted these. I can't wait to try them out. Fitness Freak here reporting about how excited I am about new exercise equipment :)
The not so good news: I will be taking a leave of absence this challenge to enjoy a ten year anniversary trip with my husband. While I am so sad to not participate, I am so excited to spend some one on one time with the hubby. While I am home, I will still post, comment, eat healthy, and exercise. I am anxious for the next challenge to begin. BTW, Melissa, are you back on board with us. I've really missed all your posts!


  1. Oh man Alicia, I hate that throw up bug. We will miss you, but have a fun trip with your hubby. You deserve a break! Happy Anniversary!

  2. Can I say how funny "Dreadmill" is? Very. Sounds like you are feeling the urge to be out in the sun like the rest of us. DVDs and other indoor activities (including the gym) aren't my favorites right now either.

    Thank you for your encouragement to come back. I'm back and need to go drink a big tall glass of water if I'm going to make it to 64 today!

    Those weights are pretty and, Alicia, you are still freakishly fitastic!

  3. Puke, no fun.
    Trip with hubby, awesome!
    New weights, priceless!

  4. Seriously, dreadmill made me laugh out loud! Where are you going on your trip? My ten year is coming up in August. We were planning a trip to NYC, but then we got asked to do Trek. I'm not sure how I feel about the trade-off.

  5. Mindy, that doesn't seem like a fair trade at all. Maybe you'll be blessed for going to Trek and have an even better 10 year anniversary trip. We are heading to St John, VI. Kind of weird, but this is the first time we've been on a plane together.

  6. Trek will be a more memorable and growing experience than NYC, Mindy.

    Nothing like the gift of weights to make a Happy Wife happy.

    Have a great trip Alicia, we'll expect a blog posting with photos and details.
