Hello everyone! I am back from my wonderful trip to Mexico. Brian and I loved our trip. Mexico is an awesome place to visit. We stayed in Rivera Maya close to Playa Del Carmen. We stayed at the Iberostar at the beach side. Iberostar was such a great resort! I HIGHLY recommend staying at an Iberostar if you go away to Mexico or any Caribbean destination. The price Brian and I paid for all the stuff we got for our money was pretty awesome. We had a great time in Jamaica last year, but we paid around the same price and all the things we got here at the Iberostar, was ten times more.
So, I wrote about how I wanted to be more active on this vacation. I totally was more active on this vacation for sure! The main thing about this resort is how HUGE it is. I wore my Weight Watchers pedometer and I averaged 18,000 to 20,000 in steps a day. We did so much walking. I did not mind the walking though. I love to walk. If I was 200 plus pounds then it would be awful! I could not imagine walking this resort out of shape. I loved the walking though.
I did more activities on this trip as well. I did the bike tour which was pretty awesome. I have not been on an actual bike in years. I usually ride a stationary bike at the gym. The bike tour was us riding our bike all around the resort and looking at the different hotel lobbies. This resort has five different hotels. So to ride on a bike was an eye opener to see just how HUGE this place was. I loved riding the bike though. I kept up with the kids in our group which was cool. I did aqua aerobics as well, which was sort of weird but fun. Also, I did ALOT of dancing!
Not only did you do a lot of dancing at the pool/pool bar but they have a night club at this resort. On Wednesday I went to their boogie night which was awesome! I am not into 70’s music at all but when you are drinking a little bit and you actually know the music it was a lot of fun. I was dancing all around and totally got an amazing workout from all the dancing. Brian did not make it for this night, but I got to dance with their “Star Friends” and they were a lot of fun.
So, I did eat and drink a lot on this vacation but I think it was fine because I was more active. The resort does have A LOT of healthy options too. I ate so much fruit because the fruit was so good. My down fall with food was the guacamole at the resort. Brian claimed I was going to turn into an avocado with how much I was eating. Guacamole is sooo high in fat, but good fat..but the Weight Watcher points is crazy. I was piling the stuff on my plate. I loved the stuff!
Brian and I had an amazing time. We both had a great and relaxing vacation. I am not sure how he did with his weight, but I only gained 6 lbs which is not bad at all. Like I said, I think we were so active that all the eating and drinking really did not hurt us. I had a ball at the Iberostar. I can not wait to go again. I know Brian feels the same way.
Now it is back to real life. I have started to write down and count points again. The good thing about being back is I am not hungry at all. I need to get back to the gym, but I am pretty lazy today. I am not sure if I am going today, but tomorrow I do plan on going to Zumba with my Mom in the morning. I need to get back to my original weight for my neighbors wedding in September. Other than that, I want to lose more weight for my graduation in January. Anyway, I hope everyone had a great week while I was gone. It is time to be back to normal and go on with reality.
