    I was up and got a 30 min kettle bell done this morning. Let me tell you the fighting that went on in my head to get me out of bed. I will do it tonight, I will go to the gym, I will workout after work . I got up and did it. I did try to log in last night but I think there was something up with my laptop and couldn't. I said I am writing a book and I worked most of the day on it yesterday. I tell you as soon as you start putting pictures into things it hogs some room. The only reason I say something about this is because of all the pictures I have of all the salads I have eaten over the last 2 months. I tell you I have been eating well and the food looks good. I better check what is in store for us this week

    Gah. We are literally on our way to the San Antonio airport, and I just got an email saying our connecting flight from Denver to SLC has been canceled. They rebooked us on a later flight, but now we have 8 HOURS to kill at the Denver airport. With two kids who are already super overtired. This is gonna be greeeeeaaaat. If anyone knows cool stuff to do at the Denver airport, especially stuff for kids, I am all ears. >.<

    @carinamenina You can ride the underground train with the kids, it’s free. Concourse B’s mezzanine has a small play area for kids and a toy store, Kazoo & Company. There is lots of shopping at the airport and art to look at. Several different restaurants also. Free Wi-Fi, so maybe they will settle down and watch a movie for you.

    @darcijojo Thank you so much! We will definitely check things out when we get there. Apparently our flight to Denver is now delayed so we are kickin' it at the San Antonio airport :P Maybe I will take the kids on an exploration walk to get some exercise/active minutes in.

    I made a "Shrinker" , an oolong tea beverage from Trim Healthy Mama, and added Ginger and nutmeg to it. That made it taste like a Chai tea. Loved it! Sooo Gud Mon!

    Reggae evolved in the late 1960s from Ska and other local variations on Calypso and Rhythm and Blues. It became widely known in the 1970s through the work of Bob Marley and its lyrics are much influenced by Rastafarian ideas.

    ****IN ORDER TO COMPLETE CHALLENGE #1****

    YOU CAN CHOSE BETWEEN THE TWO VIDEOS BELOW (OR DO BOTH!)

    VIDEO #1 IS MORE OF A SWAY AND GROOVE.

    CHALLENGE #3
    I made ginger tea.
    I usually have Chai tea, but I have heard that ginger is good for muscular aches and pains so I thought I would give it a try.
    I have had it for two days and so far I can’t tell a difference, but I do like the taste.

    I can't believe we were that close last week. I was going to get in my car and come home but had to quick get in a 15 first. I feel really bad about last week. It sucks. I got a note about my one challenge still being red. I thought I had it all covered. Darn

    Challenge #3

    I used Pimento a.k.a. allspice

    I normally use cinnamon with my yogurt and granola, so i figured why not see what the difference would be with a different spice. I may just rotate the two from now on. It was pretty good. I think i will try the nutmeg tomorrow too.

    Well it is 5:40 & I went to use the fitness centre in the hotel before another big day of driving.... it is closed until 6:00! I guess coffee will have to do until then. The rest of my family is sleeping but I am just too excited to sleep lately.

    Not allspice. It is the thing in olives. I did buy roasted red peppers. I remember my mom putting a pc on devil eggs to make them pretty.

    I thought pimentos were the red things in green olives, but thought maybe they were something else in Jamaica!
