San Antonio Bound

7 Jul

I started my day out at the gym. On the deathmill. I am positive I understand why people in Phoenix do not exercise in the summer. IT.IS.TOO.HOT!! Even in the gym.

2 things I did wrong:
First off: I put my Nuun in a regular plastic bottle of water instead of a sport top bottle. I only stopped once to take a drink. If I could have been sipping the entire time I would have been ok.
Secondly: I usually stray away from the fans because I like to sweat but in todays case I would have been better off under a fan.
Lesson learned if I decided to run while in San Antonio I will take those 2 wrongs and make a right!

Most of the rest of my morning and early afternoon were spent poolside. I love the sun. I love the water. I love getting tan. I did wear sunscreen. I was probably out there longer than I should have been! I was working on getting rid of my farmers triathlete tan.

Kamie and I soaking up some the rays:

Who knew Phoenix had clouds?!! Kru is quite the fish. He likes to spend more time with his head under the water than above. ON purpose. 🙂

We met up with some more peeps at La Grande Orange for a late lunch/early dinner. Kamie, Jill, and I split a pizza and salad. Delicious!! Of course it was time to have dessert. A good-bye dessert because my next stop was the airport! 😦

Clockwise from the top left: Peanut butter pie (OMG amazing…I might try and replicate that), coconut cupcake, salted chocolate brownie, and a compost cookie.
DO.NOT.WORRY. I did not eat them all! Kamie, Jill, Art, and I split all but the cookie. Curtis had a couple of bites. Nothing too crazy. The girls sent me on my way with the cookie. It was stuffed in my bag and not sure if it is going to make it to San Antonio. It was hot and melty before I put it in my bag. I might try and sacrifice it when I arrive. 🙂

I am looking more tan huh??

We had a fun time. This is one of my faves in Phoenix that I always make it to when I am in town.

It is always sad to leave but I had a great time. I am on my way to the second half of my vacation. San Antonio, Texas!! Do you think I could have picked a cooler place? July in the southwest. What was I thinking?

Where are you going for vacation this year?

    Looks like you had a fabulous time relaxing and hanging out with friends (minus the treadmill run!)

      I have this love/hate relationship with relaxing!! I am barely doing anything which is great but I am ready to get home and start exercising again!!
