I hear you. After running 3.14 miles tonight (yes darn it I count the .14 lol) miles in 86 degrees all bets were off! All I wanted was to jump in the lake, eat pizza and enjoy my wine. So I did. LOL!. I really shouldn't have had that third piece of pizza. LOL!

Interesting though, for the first time I compared calorie burn on myfitnesspal to what runkeeper says. I like the number myfitness pal came up with much better (280 versus 453!). MFP says I can have a little bit of licorice still. LOL! We will be at the lake all weekend so similar issues but hope to work out each day to semi balance it out.

My MIL, who rocks and one of my dearest friends in the world are also there and would do anything at the drop of a hat to help. Poor Gabby and OW!

LOL! Heck yeah, I count everything after the point! Sounds like a great night!

I'm up at 6 am. It's set to be 102* today so I'm heading out soon for my walk/jog/run. Wish me luck! Thank you for the insights and motivation and your abs in that yellow bikini. I know I'll be eating and drinking all day today.

Have a great weekend on the water! My favorite place to be in the summer!

I like MFP, not sure on how totally accurate some of the foods are but I tend to choose on the high side if there's a huge discrepancy.

Thank you my friend. I'm hoping the Augmentin will help. I also told her to keep it clean which is almost impossible.


Jill, your PM box is full.

Glad they didn't have to cut it. She'd have to be more careful at camp than would be convenient.

I hope it feels better soon!

Awesome I still have a bit more, I let it get close to the pay in full date, because if the prices drop you can't rebook without penalty if its paid in full already.

You must be right. My week in California is $150, and the 3 days in FL is $160. I'll keep checking prices though. I almost thought about flying up to MCO and grabbing DME but by the time I sat in the airport I'd probably already be there.

Thats a really good point and makes me feel better for sure. Initially I was hoping they'd cut it but you're so right. Camp is also dirty as in its in the mountains.

So once it's PIF, there's not way to get the lower price if it drops? Okay, nevermind not paying in full today. I had no idea that would be an issue. I'm waiting too. I bet there's so much more I don't know.

I can see how that would be an issue.

Yeah using different locations for pick up and drop is a killer to the price. I don't think I'd fly, you're right. You could get there in the time it'd take to fly and wait at the airport. Plus after the cruise you can just hop in your car and go!

He doesn't want to miss anymore school but of course he wants to go to WDW even if its just for resort time. He wants to stay at the BWV, AKV, or OKW. We'll see, I'm so undecided. Trying to weigh out the cost of the car etc....We'd get a Studio for sure. I'm so in the red.

Good to know that Gabby is safe. I freak out easily when I think there is trouble.

You ladies are wearing me out with all this talk of running! I walked briskly last night which got me another glass of wine last night but I probably shouldn't have had the piece of tres leches cake! I'm going to regret when I type in my intake for yesterday!

Since you gals clued me into the myfitnesspal.com website I am definitely monitoring my food (and wine) a little better. I also found that I burn a lot of calories. I didn't know things like moving boxes (which I do constantly) count as cardio, plus cleaning, even light duty. It's amazing how many calories I have actually burned over the last few days!

Yes I even put 5 minutes of climbing stairs since I went up and down them at least 5-6 times today.

Not a fun thing to deal with, especially someplace where you're active and around lots of dirt. and she probably couldn't swim for a few weeks if they cut it. I hope it clears up soon.

That's my understanding. I could be wrong though, but I don't want to take any chances.

570 total, 240 at Aulani, 280 at AKV, and 50 at VGF. No regrets in the least, I'll be able to use this my entire life. Guaranteed vacations is a wonderful feeling.

I totally agree, it'll be nice to just get up there. You and Joshua are more than welcome to drive with me if you're heading up to WDW. I know you might want your own car but just wanted to offer. I promise I'm not trying to take over your vacation.

Ahhh, that is understandable. January is a low time so I'm sure things won't book up quickly. Lots of time to decide.

I had a nice well thought out post and reply to everyone and my iPad flashed. I'll be back tomorrow, crazy weekend.


But before I go, look what I got you today Pam:



I got a Daisy one for me and a Mickey one for Joshua. They were $1 at Blockbuster. I got a few extra for FE gifts if our cruise has one. Guess I shouldn't post them in case any fellow cruisers are lurking.

I love it! They've shut down most of our Blockbusters, we used to rent movies all the time.

They were bought out here, went through some major pains, and seem to be doing ok. Redbox has made it so they've had to lower their prices which is great for me.

Okay, trying to repost what I had yesterday. I'm on my phone now. My iPad is giving me grief.

Okay so every time I try to multi quote my iPad acts up. No clue what's going on.....

Cynthia, I took your info and didn't pay in full. On the rare chance our price will drop, I'd hate to miss any refund.


Alison, it's so good to see you on MyFitness Pal. I track my food even when I'm way over. It's crazy how much you move more than you thought.

It really helps me not open that mini bag of chips etc....


Mary Ellen, how was your first day?


Pam,

199 days!!!


We're in the hundreds girl!! I just about booked the VWL right now for the two days after the cruise. I just can't decide. I know we won't be able to not do MK. Argh!! I'm looking into the price of one day tickets. Or two day tickets. Non hoppers. I asked Joshua what two parks he'd want; a half day at one and a full day at the other and he chose DHS and MK. We'd do Friday night at DHS and all Saturday at MK.
