I am getting excited to take vacation. Planning and planning making sure we get in as much as we can. Getting the best prices and bang for our buck. I am also keeping in mind that each day must:
*have a comfortable safe place to sleep so I maintain body rest
*swim for off hours activity
*breakfasts with protein options so I am not only eating carbs
*walking shoes for all the walking we will be doing each day- planning a ton of walking!
*walking activities daily
*food or meal choices are healthy yet indulgent and something I don't normally have at the right times.
*fun for adults and kids alike
*feed the brain with interesting things
*allow myself help with an uber , taxi or water taxi when needed
* tons of fresh air, sunshine, beauty, interest and fun
* hydration always!
I plan on finding myself a back pack purse so my neck and shoulders don't get as sore with a shoulder strap. I plan on prepaying for my hotel so money is less of a worry. I plan on having someone house sit so my puppy wont be lonely and will be well taken care of and my house not empty. I plan on it just being the 3 of us instead of the 5 of us for the first time ever. I plan on allowing myself to enjoy everyday and not worry about my other two kids who will not be with us. I WILL BE active more than normal daily. I WILL BE sure to take my medications and WILL BE making sure I eat at the right times and I WILL BE sure to hydrate.
This isn't an extravagant vacation. Just a get away to a big city to enjoy a lot of what it has to offer. We have done this place before but not for years. About 8 years to be exact! My husband has been through a lot and will be going through even more and needs to get away for a few days. I do too. And we were running out of time for the little guy to go with us so we decided to just do it!
The itinerary is pretty much done. I just need to book and pay for the room and find a purse! I am excited! One active vacation....coming up!
