Well my mind is officially on vacation mode. I have one and a half work days to get through and then I am gone. My heartburn was gone yesterday which I am so grateful for even though I am now suffering with an allergy attack. I think some crisp Maine air will do the trick though. I just have a quick stop to the DMV/RMV to renew my license and a quick trip to the library before I am ready. Can’t forget a quick trip to the liquor store too. So since my brain isn’t fully functioning I figure I’ll leave you with some things I am currently doing.
Working Out to: I bought these with my own money, you can click on the pictures to go to Amazon for more info. They are not affiliate links.
Personal Training with Jackie: Power Circuit Training – Total of 5 workouts last only 15 minutes each but they are tough. My hamstrings were so sore after one workout for two days. Killer but effective.
UFC Fit: I have only done one workout so far but it is a good workout. I was dripping in sweat. It is a mixed martial arts training workout. Requires a weight set nothing too heavy though. So far I’m loving it but will give more info after I do a few more workouts.
Currently Watching: Murder in the First – I am glad it is back. I am a little lost with the splitting of the stories but still really good.
Wishing for: My vacation to start. So looking forward to spending time with family. Not worrying about anything but sunrise, reading, laughing and joking with family. We leave Saturday morning.
Reading: Chasing River. I am only about a third in but so far it’s decent. It takes place in Dublin which is a hostile backdrop but still really beautiful.
What are you doing currently?
more coffee, less talky says
oh how i wish you lived near me so we could do muay thai together!!! i looked at that workout and it’s similar to rushfit…a great workout to get your blood going.
glad that your vacay is starting…you need some RnR!!
It is really good, very similar. A lot of takedown moves, abs, pushups and the usually punch kick jab combos. Love it so far.
It is much needed! Going to enjoy just sitting around and talking with the fam, and walking the beaches.

So close to vacation! Have a great time! The UFC workout sounds like a good way to get your aggression and negativity out of your body ! I just do not like any kind of fighting. Lol!
Enjoy every minute of your time away!
Love, SMD’s Momma
It is very fast paced which I like and it gives you a good sweat. I am a lover not a fighter too so this is a better alternative.
i get the same way the closer to vacay i get–my brain just zones out and idgaf!
Yup! It is totally shutting down at the moment.
I remember when Jackie had her own show on Bravo and it was the best – I miss it!! You are going to have a wonderful time on vacation! xo, biana
Yes, her sky sport training center. I miss it too. I am so excited.
HEATHER @ My Little HEA says
Ahh, vacation!! You’re going to have such a blast. I’m on the waiting list for Chasing River and now I can’t wait to start it but I have about a dozen books to read before then. Enjoy your vacation!!
I am so excited for it. I got it from NetGalley. So far so good. I hear ya though my too-read pile is ridiculous!
Yayyy for vacations and for upcoming pictures of a coast I’ve never seen! Maybe someday I’ll make it up the northeast coast.
There will be lots of pictures for sure! You should so many great beaches and salty air.

I love Jackie! She can kick butt & take names. I miss her show on Bravo!
I miss her show too. I will have to see if it’s on Demand.
Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World says
I need to remember that book. I need one place (ya know like Good Reads which I never use anymore) to keep track of all the books I want to read.
Yes, Goodreads is a must or I forget what I’ve read or want to read. I’d be lost without it.
The last couple days before vacation can be incredibly hard. haha. I hope your vacation is amazing!
So hard to stay focused!! Mind is already on ocean breezes and fruity beverages.
i have been looking for some new at home workouts, the jackie one looks really good! 15 minutes? sold! lol. yay vacation! jealous.
Even better it is just under $10.00!! Watching the sunrises right on the ocean…I am so excited.
Those work outs sound interesting, cant wait to hear more about them when you dive deeper! I hope you have a great time on your vacation 🙂
I am really liking them so far. Thank you!
Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis says
Murder in the first sounds interesting. I will have to check it out.
Isn’t it always fun counting down to vacation?
It is pretty good and a good cop drama. I love counting down, I am so excited.

Haha! That is quite the wait.

I’ve read a detective series set in Dublin by Irish author, Declan Hughes. It’s pretty gritty and wonderful.
Have a fabulous, wonderful, restful vacation!!
I’ll have to check that one out. Dublin is such a good setting. Thank you. Have a great weekend!
