Celebrating Christmas + Jingle the Jiggle Away Workout
For my birthday, my work group decided to do a group outing with me and head to the ICE Event held every year at Gaylord Palms in Orlando!
After having cupcakes for breakfast and running a couple of miles to negate that fact, we headed to O-town early to grab lunch beforehand at the resort. Gaylord Palms is super nice! There’s sections of the resort named for different areas in Florida: St Augustine, Key West, etc. I’ve wanted to stay there but it also costs a pretty penny to stay along with the price you’d pay for any spa packages etc…which would be a must!
After a stroll around the resort we headed in to the ICE exhibit! I got pretty darn excited as I saw the theme of the display this year was “Merry Madagascar!”
Tidbits of info: ICE! is Florida’s favorite frigid Christmas tradition, with over 20,000 square-feet of frosty 9-degree bliss played out in a winter wonderland of exciting hand-carved sculptures. Artisans take shifts in the 9 degree exhibit creating sculptures from characters to ice slides from Two Million POUNDS of ice!
Yes, it is around 9 degrees on there! You’re given fashionable parkas for that very reason and believe me they come in handy!
I won against hubs on the ice slide!
I’m so over cupcakes….from hubs to peeps at work, I’ve seen gigantic amounts of cupcake love. I love them, but they won’t love my hips. Miles of running wouldn’t undo the damage…so it’s about time to pass them on for adoption to other pals of mine. I have to get back into this running game! Doc Oc, my TENS machine, has been working fantastically! I mean, I feel much better in regards to recovery after each run – it’s become by routine to use Doc after each run. Add to that the fact that Hubs has been stealing Doc from me after each session for his ankle and his PT is noticing a huge difference in his range of motion – that alone shows me it’s working!
Let’s get back to business!
Just me, Doc, and Jaeden
Have you been to any Christmasy events lately?
