February 20th, 2012

It has been a while since I’ve updated my blog so I guess I owe you all an update. In January I mentioned my 2012 resolution about being a tourist in my own town and that I went up to Birch Bay for a day trip. Well I also took the ferry over to Bainbridge for the day a few weeks ago. It is really quiet and peaceful  out there. The town was pretty calming too. I am pretty sure I could have been content to ride the ferry all day too. The water is very relaxing and the gentle hum of the motor on the ferry is soothing too. As for February, I haven’t done anything overly touristy but I did take a road trip down to Portland so I think that should count. We walked around downtown, and along the river and tried a few restaurants that have been on tv. I printed a list of all restaurants in Seattle and Portland that have been featured on a tv show and plan to try a few of our local spots now.

As for fitness, I’ve been going into Pilates twice a week and then trying to run or do some other form of exercise once or twice a week. I even tried Air-O-Bics at Skyhigh Sports in Bellevue. It was a fun workout and I was definitely sore for a few days after but not something I’d do all the time. I would try it again for sure though and recommend everyone try it once. You can burn as much as 1000 calories per hour just jumping on a trampoline so adding aerobic movements will only increase the burn.
