Weekend Ramblings...
This is what it looks like to travel with me for 4 days...

Tony took a picture of the amount of food I packed to post on Facebook. The amount of food I eat these days is kind of impressive to him. I'm telling you, when you find what works for your body, it feels so good! Also, I have to be prepared! This girl needs her food and when all you can get at dinner is salads (i.e. lettuce, two slices of cucumber and 2 cherry tomatoes) ya gotta have a stash! Things you can't see are water, sausage balls (for Tony) protein powder, oatmeal, almond milk, carrots, apples, peaches and bananas. The coke zero is for a caffeine hit in the afternoon after late nights up!

To say my thoughts are all over the place right now would be an understatement. The reason I went MIA for the past week is because Tony and I headed to Charlotte, NC last Thursday to attend the comic book convention we go to there every year. As always, it was an incredible event and really it feels more like an annual class reunion rather than work. Tony did well and connected with some great fans. Since he works out of the house and doesn't get a whole lot of contact with fans, it really makes a difference when he gets to hear from them especially face to face. He came home excited to continue on! Which is always a great thing when it comes to work...

I got the pleasure of meeting with the lovely ladies at Purely Twins!

Lori and Michelle are such amazing entrepreneurs and I love watching them grow their success! There was never a lull in our conversation. While I had never met them face to face, I felt like I had known them forever (it has been years) and the subjects to talk about just kept going! These ladies are inspiring and so incredibly sweet. It was such a great time and I can't wait to see them again!

We are now back home, still without kids...which we miss so badly right now, but we will be back with them in 3 days! I CAN NOT WAIT! I have a lot of work to get done, some I'm looking forward to and some not so much (book keeping hates me and the feeling is mutual). I did, in fact, run the 5k fun run this past Saturday associated with the convention. I want to share the details and my thoughts on running in a different post that I will have up tomorrow. I'm thinking about continuing the Workout Wednesday posts. Working out is such a huge part of me and I feel that since I'm playing around with some different things, I would like to share my take on them...specifically running. No, I am still not a runner and I have no plan to go beyond a 5k, but I've learned a ton of stuff recently and I want to share.

Are you a runner or want to be? What is the best tip you can give a newbie?

Do you take food when you travel? What's a must have for road trips?

    yay for meeting the twins - I would have loved to be there to meet you all! :)

    yes, I absolutely bring food on trips... we are on vacation right now and I have food with me - I would say snacks are a must, things I can bring in my handbag in case hunger sneaks up on me. bars, almonds + cashews, dried fruit are all things I have on me right now! ;)

    I really cannot wait to hear your thoughts on the fun run!

    Hmmm... advice for newbies... well, I find it helps to have running partners when you're not particularly looking forward to it. Luckily, you have 3 potential running buddies in your house (or you will again, soon). :)

    i'm the same way -- i always bring food with me -- you're right, when you find what works for your body, you gotta stick with it!

    You better believe I pack food LOL. Have food will travel ;-) Your arms are looking good my friend! If you want to chat about running, you know how to reach me. Would love to talk. Not a pro of course, but still a newbie all things considered. My biggest tip is to enjoy it!

    You know I'm a runner! :)
    Best tip? Start small and have fun!

    We're crazy with the food when we travel. Gotta have options! :)

    Ha!! Your food packing looks just like mine! I bought a ginormous cooler just so that I would have more room to pack our food! I am always prepared and rarely have to shop once we get to our destination! LOL I love that you are the same way!!
    And, YAY for getting to see the boys in just a few days! Hope you got a ton done while they were off having their fun! :D

    Safe and enjoyable food sure makes for better trips, doesn't it? :-) I'm so excited you got to meet Lori and Michelle! And how nice to meet up with old friends and have couple time, but also have the boys' homecoming to look forward to.

    Oh yes, I know all about packing food for vacations. We just went to the beach for 4 days and I packed multiple bags of food for my son with food allergies. I'm planning to write about it on my blog soon!
