Thank you all so much for your support in voting for us during the Marriott beach blogger contest. WE WON in case you haven’t heard. It was all about votes and YOU made it happen. We can’t wait to share our experience with you. I still can’t believe it! We’ll be heading to St. Thomas Virgin Islands and staying at the newly renovated Frenchman’s Reef Marriott Resort. Isn’t it beautiful? I know it was meant to be. You can keep up with our travels on our new Facebook page at Newton’s Travels.
I’m looking at my workout calendar for the last 2 weeks and it’s pretty lame. After boxing for two days in Atlanta (which was AMAZING), I had planned to take a break that Thursday and get back to workouts at the hotel fitness center the next day but there were other plans in store for me. I walked out a door leading outside from one of the business conference rooms and twisted my ankle and knee. It was horrible! THEN that same night clutzo did it again out side. Needless to say I was in a lot of pain the rest of the time I was there. Thankful that a friend had brought a huge ice pack and let me use it the remainder of my stay. Plus she shared her Tylenol to help me get through the remaining days. I am now home and in the process of healing so the plan is to start working out again this week but take it easy.
We have a bit of time before we jet off for St. Thomas so I can get some good workouts in before we leave. I also want to let you know that the Better Healthy Living challenge will no longer be in September. I’ll keep you updated but I’m looking at October or November for the next one. I’m still looking for contest giveaway donations so please feel free to email me if you have something to donate. And any tips on things you would like to see during the challenge are welcome too!
Congrats, Angie. A trip to the beautiful St. Thomas Virgin Islands sounds divine right about now. (But then again it is Monday) lol.
Have fun and take lots of pics.
Thanks Missy! It does sound nice doesn’t it? I can’t wait. And Kev is going to be my photographer so you’ll definitely see a ton of great pictures.

Congrats Angie! I know you and Kevin will have a fantastic time. I’ll try to be only a little jealous. 🙂
Thanks Cindy! We are really looking forward to trying a new place.

Congrats Angie! I know I’m bringing up the rear here but you know I’m on the road too. Frenchman’s Reef looks fantastic you definitely made a good choice – looking forward to seeing more photos from your trip. Enjoy – like that will be hard!
Sorry to hear about your injury! That is currently one of my biggest fears, getting hurt so I can’t workout out at all!
