Getting fit for Life

I did it… :)

I managed to eat well and stay active while on our recent trip to Cuba and only gained one pound.  woohoo!

As of this morning (1 week back home) I am down 20lbs since April…this is great and now toning and building muscle which I expect I would probably gain some weight. But it’s not about the number on the scale it’s about being healthy; being able to breathe when going up stairs or out for a nice walk.

This past Monday Brian and I started P90 (Sculpt) from Beachbody and so far so good…back to eating healthier and less alcohol; it takes restraint at an all-inclusive resort not to drink and eat your face off but I didn’t want to come back and start all over again so I stuck to my 30 minutes of working out or 10000 steps.  Everyday we’d walk around and probably averaged 11000 steps a day…one day we even got over 18000 steps.

We worked out a few times (mostly Plyo from the 21 day fix).  I think two days before we were leaving we saw another couple working out on the lawn in front of their room…awesome to see 🙂

I took my Shakeology and had that down there as well…I remember getting ice put in my shaker and the waitress curling her nose up :D.

Overall we had a great time felt good coming back and didn’t have to work too much harder to get to where were before we went on vacation.

Another thing we did was dance everyday; just picked a spot at the bar and danced when a song came on that inspired us to dance…not sure how good we were but it was fun.  Even took the dancing lessons when they had them at the resort.  I can’t believe that more people don’t engage in this sometimes we were the only ones on stage with the staff.

Will have more pictures in the next couple weeks of the sights of the resorts and birds as well as the catamaran excursion we did…Brian got a nice shot of a Sargent Major 🙂
