Gulf Shores Part Two

I won't be posting Workout Wednesday today, the Internet is slow as a snail here and I need to get everyone ready for a Princess and Pirate Breakfast at The Hangout.

I have been doing a little working out, of course.


Running here is no joke, the humidity is around 90% in the morning. I did 6 miles and thought I was going to pass out. 


We rented some kayaks for the week, great arm and ab workout. Now steering is a whole other issue and I may have been drinking too much and Oliver may have had to do most of the work. I tried to 'power row' our way back and ended up hitting the dock and giving us whiplash :) Oops.


I haven't really been watching what I eat, I'm on vacation and I'm just going with the flow. I am eating all the fruit I can find, it's pretty amazing here, but I'm also indulging in ice cream :) 


FYI, they have no clue what a skinny margarita is here! I had no idea that would be a regional thing, but I guess it is. I ordered my normal chicken fajitas and ate them with no tortillas.


Most of our days have been spent soaking up the sun on the beach. We've swam, flew kites, played catch, and searched for clams. Poor Twilight Sparkle did have a run in with a jelly fish, it got her right on the booty. Thankfully one of our neighbors knew to pour vinegar on it and she immediately stopped crying, brave girl!


With love from the Gulf Shores,
SkinnyMeg

  3. Sounds fun! We are on vacation this week too and I've actually worked out everyday so far, I'm quite impressed with myself. We also have kayaks and I can't believe how sore I am even though I lift really heavy weights. I like feeling sore so that's good. Enjoy your vacation!

  6. looks like a great time and kudos for enjoying what you eat but still keeping it real. I NEED to remember this next week while I'm home in Maryland (thankfully I'm most looking forward to seafood!!).

    You get the award for most committed. You are RIGHT the heat and humidity there is NO JOKE! My hubby got heat exhaustion last year after just hanging out on the beach, having some beers and relaxing... trying to walk back to our condo, he got really over heated (he had a bout of this weeks before mowing the lawn)... We've since learned hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

    Enjoy your vacay! ANd that pirate thing sounds awesome!

  10. Oh the humidity! I was so excited this morning when I checked the weather & saw that the humidity in Baton Rouge was only 88% at 5 AM!! It's crazy! Have a great trip!

  11. Your pictures are making me miss the beach. When we went I didn't bring my workout clothes so I didn't get to go for a run. It was way too humid anyway!

    Loving that dress btw:)

  14. Aahhh! Poor Twilight Sparkle!! I'm terrified of jellyfish!

  15. Sorry to hear she got stung by a jellyfish!! No bueno.

    And I have to say that I am secretly grinning at the fact that they don't have skinny margaritas. We don't have them where I live (in Florida) and am always jealous when I hear you talking about them. Guess it is regional!!

  17. Dry shaving the area where the jellyfish stung gets the stingers out and use the vinegar. Works wonders, too! Hopefully, there won't be any other run ins with jellyfish! I only know from personal experience!
