Hello from Disney..and more specifically, the “Pirate Room”
Yup. We thought paying a little extra would land us an ‘upgraded’ room, but we should have known that here at Disney, an upgrade means more animated. So here we are..just two adults hanging out in pirate beds 😉
And I mean that literally…we have been napping and watching T.V for the past 2 hours and will probably call it bedtime as soon as I am done here. The pouring rain and the early morning flight put a bit of a damper on our plan to hit Epcot tonight.
However, the rain did hold up so we could get a short run in around the resort.
I forgot how awesome it is to run in just one layer and without worrying about frost bite taking over my toes and fingers. I have been wanting to run in the warm weather for so long so I will not complain about the heat..but I will say that this long-sleeve was not the smartest decision.
Before I sail away in my pirate ship for a good night’s sleep before an early morning rise for Crossfit, I must talk about some great finds at Trader Joe’s that made packing meals for this trip extremely easy.
If you have ever been to Disney, you are well aware that, although there are some amazing restaurant options, they are not always healthy or cheap. Last year I individually sealed and froze 16 meals and ate them despite how soggy and gross they were. This year I made it MUCH easier on myself and my sanity. Instead of packing individual meals, I just picked up a variety of nuts, greens, fruits and protein to have on hand to avoid eating out every day. A carton of liquid egg whites, a bag of oats, some cacao nibs and goji berries is less than $25 and will give me a fulfilling and hearty breakfast everyday. That’s a little better than a $20 one-time breakfast buffet…
