My last five days have been a little crazy! I hurt my foot in Thai Kwon Do. I got kicked in sparring. No big besides going to Vegas the next morning. I went for my dad’s 86th birthday and cousins wedding. I had packed cute shoes but I spent the weekend in my Glittery Tods. My foot swollen and painful. Limping around Vegas so not fun. I tried to eat healthy and planned to hit the gym at the Trump Tower Hotel. Neither worked out. Back home today. I told my husband I was going to grocery store and would use the scooter. I’m craving my Kale! He said I should go to the doctor. Ugh! I can walk on it. It can’t be broken ? Stay tuned!

You can workout on Vacation without going to the icky gym. If you have a kid it’s even better. My daughter wants to spend the day in the pool. I decided to take advantage of that. I could have laid by the pool & ate and drank. That would be lots of calories and not fun. Don’t get me wrong I did eventually have a drink and shrimp avocado ceviche but that was after 2 hours in the pool. We played volleyball ,basketball and I used a noodle thing for resistance training. We raced and dunked each other under water. I was exhausted when I got out. I finally convinced her to play with the other kids in the pool. She stayed in another two hours. I have a pool at home. I have to remember that on really hot days it’s a great way to exercise. I don’t use my pool nearly as much as I should. Do you have any favorite pool exercises?
Yeah, I got my shoes. I’m trying the minimalist barefoot thing. I can’t do the 5 finger toes. They just didn’t feet my feet right. I bought Merrell Pace Gloves. I couldn’t wait to try them out so I tried the treadmill at the hotel gym. So far so good. My feet felt good and I didn’t get numbness in my shins. I didn’t do a full test. I did 1 minute intervals for about 20 minutes in the hotel gym. I couldn’t do any longer .The ventilation sucked and it was way too hot in there. I’m just not a gym girl. Too many people. I prefer to exercise at home or outside. I will have to try the track at my daughters school. It may be the Sangria I had last night or hanging out at Eve’s at CityCenter Vegas. Either way I’m not able to hang like I used to;)
