Hi Ladies and Gents!
I have a very special treat for you today. I’m giving away a $25 gift card to REI to one lucky Cuckoolemon reader. To enter all you have to do is suggest an active, warm weather honeymoon/vacation destination in the comments. You must comment on this blog post to be considered entered into the raffle.
Before I get more into the raffle and the honeymoon planning, I wanted share a rundown of last week’s workouts.
Every time I worked out last week:
Tuesday: Pon de Flo (Please let me know if you’ve tried this, would love to hear what others thought!)
Wednesday: Pure Barre + physical therapy. I mentioned earlier I hurt my back surfing (technically falling while surfing, if we’re going to get real here). Raechel, my PT and guardian angel was able to quickly identify the issue (I jammed my SI joint) and show me two exercises to do and within two days I was feeling 100% back to normal. She is a hero. Go book an appointment with her but not the 7:30am ones because those are mine.
Thursday: 3-mile run in Central Park on an unseasonably warm day
Friday: Short 1.8-mile run in Central Park just to get out there
Saturday: I was in Vermont and skied at Stratton. It was so cold and very icy. I barely took any photos because I didn’t want to take my mittens off.
Sunday: I was on the fence about skiing a second day because I was only starting to feel my toes again by Sunday morning. But I went to the ski shop and purchased glove liners, toe warmers, and a Smart Wool Balaclava and it made a world of difference. (All of which could be purchased at REI if you win the gift card!)
Now, back to the fun stuff. To win the gift card, recommend a destination for an active, warm weather vacation (or honeymoon!) that would be a great spot in December.
What does “active” mean? It means there is a diversity of things to do out side. I’m looking places to swim, things to climb, or opportunities to run and bike.
Leave an idea (or something you’d like to do or have done!) in the comments and you’ll be entered to win $25 to REI.

I can’t wait to read your ideas and personal experiences! I may just use one of your suggestions myself 🙂
