Livin' The Life

Well, it's birthday week here at POM Institute of Awesomeness.
What that means is more reasons to get out there and eat, drink and be merry.
And less reasons to exercise.
I'm trying my darnedest to NOT let that happen. So here is my weekend plan and my workout plan to combat the laziness:

Wed: Run in AM, Yoga in afternoon if I can sneak out of work early, Fancy home cooked meal

Thur: Run in AM, Big celebratory dinner with lots of friends at oceanfront restaurant.

Fri: Drive to Los Olivos (about 4 hrs), go for long walk, get facial, dinner with family

Sat: Run in AM, wine tasting, dinner at Los Olivos Cafe

Sun: Drive home, maybe in time for Yoga.

Great intentions I have here. Just hope I actually follow through.
I'm really excited about this week ~ as long as I can keep this cold at bay. Bring on the Vitamin C!!!

Happy Birthday!!

Just sprinkle that Airborne into each glass of wine and you will be fine.
If anyone I 'know' writes a plan and stciks to it, that would be the CEO of POM Institute of Awesomeness.

Happy Birthday Week. Sounds like a plan... Indulge yourself wisely and you will have a great time. Take some Emergen-C now and often to keep that cold away.

Los Olivos= LOVE IT. Please, please make sure you taste at Consilience and perhaps Dan Gehrs as well for me. That's very near my hometown-- and a great place to toddle from tasting to tasting. I also have plenty of trail/running recommendations for cool spots around there.

Happy Birthday to P.O.M!

I love the "institute of awesomeness", that's a great phrase. in Kung Fu Panda (my 3 yr old currently adores) where jack black says "there is no charge for awesomeness or attractiveness". i've been using that one lately.

happy birthday! enjoy the week.

Charmaine said...

I am stuck on one thing.

What is happening with...?

Then, are you guys still mad at me? I did, perhaps, over-react just a tad.

Hormone fluctuations, unemployment and dating madness can cause a woman to occassionally say something she regrets. Looking for a truce here. hee hee

Cheers

The wine tasting sounds great! You notice that is what I focused on... :-)
