I’m back with another recap of my vacation in the Bahamas! Since Monday and Tuesday consisted of pretty much the same thing during the day, with different activities in the evening, I’ll recap both of those days in this post!
Both mornings started off with a workout upon rising at 6. Since the entire resort was literally still sleeping off their previous day of drinking, I had the gym to myself every day that I was there. The resort apparently didn’t like turning the AC on that early in the morning since I found it to be a sauna in the gym every day. I went through 3 towels during every workout, ha! My workouts included 15 minutes of HIIT running, followed by a strength workout, and ending with about a 15 minute cool-down walk.
Breakfast was the same for me. We would meet at 8 am, reserve our chairs on the beach and go inside to eat. I packed protein pancakes, so I ate those with 1 tbsp of peanut butter, fresh fruit, & a little bit of maple syrup to dip each bite in.
After breakfast, we headed to the beach to start our days.
Playing in the water.
You name it, we did it.
To cool off, we would hang out in the pool for a good chunk of time. The girls liked it because there was a swim up bar, so we spent a lot of time around the bar. I didn’t have a single drink the entire vacation. Some might call me weird, but seeing the mixtures in jugs just looked so unappealing. I don’t like mixed drinks either, so it was just more enjoyable for me to stick to bottled water.
On Monday evening we went to dinner at the steakhouse, and then headed over to the outdoor stage to watch that nights entertainment. It was a mix of dancing. It was cool but we were so exhausted that after the show we went to bed.
Tuesday night after dinner we headed over to watch another show, which really bored the heck out of me!
I was so hungry that I just wanted it to end so that we could go get ice cream. The dining hall had THE best strawberry ice cream, and I had no problem whatsoever eating 3 scoops with the works, 3 nights in a row. No shame. I figured if I ate healthy for all of my meals, got my workouts in and didn’t drink, then ALL THE ICE CREAM was my way of treating myself on vacation. 🙂
And that’s Monday & Tuesday’s recap. I’ll be back tomorrow with Wednesday & Thursday for ya!
