It is so awesome to take off and escape reality for a few days. And Atlantic City is close enough to home, yet far enough away to be a great escape. Yesterday was not a great gambling day for us, but we had a great time anyway. We don't really come to win, we come to have fun. So Alan, had this absolutely wonderful idea yesterday to walk the boardwalk with me today. You can bet your booty I made him keep that commitment!!
Some where in the distance are the hotels and where we are staying. It was a good walk!! I wore my bodybugg and my display watch and kept saying to him how many calories we were burning.
In the end our walk burned almost 1,000 calories. We walked for so long, that we ended up eating lunch at the Rain forest Cafe, at 5:00. I had grilled Mahi Mahi with vegetables, holding the rice and beans.
I even avoided the mango salsa, it wasn't my taste kind of spicey!!
All in all it was great to get outside and walk, again changing up my workout.
On top of that, it was more burn than I planned on and I was hanging with my
hubby. Tomorrow we are bracing for another winter fury, so it was nice to
be outdoors. It was chilly. but there were about 20 surfers who didn't seem to
mind the air being 40 degrees! burr..............
After our meal, we took a walk to the outlets on a quest for hiking sneakers!! All the big athletic companies have stores in the area, so more walking!! I ended up buying sneakers at Adidas called Response Trail 16 sneakers. There best trail sneaker. The are cushioned and have great trail traction on the bottom. I will be wearing nothing else working out till I get to Fitness Ridge. I have about a month to break them in.
The list for FR is so big, and it is a bit overwhelming to think of all the things I need. I ordered bathing suits online, that was a BIG, or should I say "itty bitty" mistake! I could barely squeeze my body in to them and there were bulges I didn't know I could bulge in them. So I am going to have go shop for a couple of suitable suits.
This is me today all bundled up, did have to buy that hat to keep my ears warm, but I LOVED the walk and was amazed at some of the amazing homes on the boardwalk, beyond monopoly. That is beyond the hotels. I say monopoly, because if you ever come to Atlantic City, you will see all the famous streets on the board, ie Park Place, Atlantic, and no wonder the boardwalk is the best property on the monopoly board, its made for a great workout! haha! Okay time to try and get some of my money back.
Tomorrow is my 5th week weigh-in. Guess who packed her scale?? Yeah I did! PS I made sure I weighed the same at home and at the hotel so it is accurate.
Until tomorrow I bid you a good night!
