Hilton Head 09'

Hello! Long time, no talk! We got back from Hilton Head late last night. We enjoyed sun, great workouts, and lots of fresh seafood! The hotel we stayed at had a small gym, but it was better than nothing. I did a lot of running outside and hopped on the elliptical a few times. My vacation workouts looked like this:

Friday AM: Body Pump before leaving
Saturday: 6 mile run
Sunday: 6 mile run
Monday: Josh and I walked into town and then I did a half hour on the elliptical
Tuesday: 4.5 mile run, 15 minutes on the elliptical
Wednesday: 4.5 mile run, 15 minutes on the elliptical

Here are a few pictures from our vacation:

Path to the Beach:


Peanut butter "sushi", our dessert one night. It was a mixture of peanut butter and cream cheese "rolled" up and covered with oreo cookie crumble. Topped with whipped cream and fruit. All of us had one piece....a little indulgence is always worth it when its this delicious ;)

The men on the beach (Josh's brothers, Josh's Dad, Josh):
Josh and I:


All the "kids":

The family:

Only 8 Froyo:


Sorry I didn't take many meal photos! Hope you guys are all having a fabulous week! I am off to enjoy my last 3.5 days of vacation.
