5 Fat-Busting Vacation Exercises
going on a road trip to California – woohoo! But I just started working with a personal trainer to get my body in shape after spraining my knee this winter, and I don’t want to lose that progress in two weeks of sitting, camping, and eating out. So I asked my trainer Justin Weis of Fit For Life Training to give me 5 Easy-but-Effective exercises I can do while I’m on vacation! Camping, hotel, beach… anywhere, anytime!

Disneyland Fun (& Fashion!)
friends! Anaheim is GORGEOUS!!! We had a blast taking the kids to Disneyland for their first time. It was truly a magical experience; I even teared-up now and then, simply from watching my kids’ delight and re-living my own childhood memories of this wondrous place. Mega-thanks to all the staff and characters who made a point of telling my daughter “Happy Birthday, princess!” all day long. Eventually she got over her shyness, and managed to mumble an embarrassed “Thank you” or two. But having to make eye contact with so many strangers in a day was a bit overwhelming for her, Lol!
I will post kid & family pictures a bit later, but for now I just had to share some of the fun styles and outfits we observed in Disneyland! As always, click on the photo thumbnails to view them full-sized. 🙂
My favorite trend was the abundance of BOOTS. I grew up mostly in Seattle, so boots have always been a year-round wardrobe staple for me; gotta keep your feet dry in all that rain! Boots are big in California, too. Worn with leggings, skirts, shorts, and dresses – a lady in boots projects a fashion attitude! Here are a few of the great ensembles I observed:
Mohawks!! I was surprised to see mohawks and bright colors on hundreds of heads, both male & female! Rocking do’s flocked Disneyland, from black to green to cotton candy pink! Wish I had been able to take more pics, but here’s a couple:
I used to have such a huge crush on Han Solo! Yes, that was “back in the day. ” 😉 I got a kick out of all the fun Star Wars stuff available t Disneyland, especially the “vintage” shirts and Chewbacca backpacks. I saw one girl who was wearing Chewbacca on her chest, like a baby in a front pack, with his little arms wrapped around her in a furry hug. Ok, so that was a little creepy; I really wish I could have snapped a pic of it!
Here are a few other pics of interesting styles. My favorite was the woman dressed all in pink (last pic), with her fuzzy pink bear hat to ward off the 85-degree summer sun- ha, ha! ;-D
