Brian and I went to Montego Bay, Jamaica last week. It was a great experience. We stayed at an All-Inclusive resort at the Holiday Inn Sunspree and it was great! It was great because I drank and ate as much as I wanted. I went into this vacation not worrying about gaining weight and not being healthy. I worked very hard this week and I wanted to treat myself. I gained 11 lbs of course but I will not beat myself about it. I was glad I did not worry about this because I had a blast and it was so relaxing!
This was the first time I was ever out of the country. I am from New Jersey and I am not used to seeing the ocean be so clear. I could see my feet and fish swimming all around. It was amazing. I tried to snorkel one day but they ran out of snorkels. I just got a mask and that was good enough. It was amazing how many fish and hermit crabs were everywhere. I could not believe how close I was to wild life.
One thing I can cross off my weight loss bucket list is I CLIMBED THE DUNN’S RIVER FALLS. The falls is 180 feet high and 600 feet long..and Brian and I climbed it. It was tough. I did not realize how tough it was to climb this monster. I actually wanted to give up but our tour guide (the only female tour guide) was not taking giving up as an answer. She helped me along the way. It was really amazing how someone was so willing to help me conquer this. My only thing about this was the fact that children were climbing this. Some of the kids were terrified and I got stuck holding a six year old at one point during the falls. I knew a six year old could not pick me up. So I wish that children were not climbing the falls. I would never make my child do this. Anyway..it was a great climb and we were very sore from this.
Another thing I can cross off my weight loss bucket is GO TO A TROPICAL PARADISE IN A KILLER OUTFIT. I wore this awesome dress to an amazing dinner one night and I felt so good in it. I felt confident and amazing in it. Not only did I wear it to dinner but we went to a club later that night. I danced in it for hours and hours.
An all-inclusive resort was great because everything is paid for. You get to eat and drink what ever you like. I know this sounds awful to promote on a weight loss blog but it is the way to go for vacation. The drinks were great and always flowing and the food was really good. I tried jerk chicken and pork and it was great. Very spicy but it tasted great with Red Stripe beer. Not only did they have bad food but they had amazing fruit. I tried all the fruit there. Papaya, mango, pineapple and many more. The fruit was great. I always made sure I had some kind of fruit on my plate.
My whole experience was amazing. Brian and I had an amazing time and we can not wait to go back. I have learned that I love to travel and I hope to go out of the country again. I loved the lay back life style of Jamaica and I hope to go back soon. The beach was beautiful and the people in Jamaica were so friendly. I am glad to add this to my memories.
