Healthy Lifestyle on Vacation

My husband and I are headed down to Cayo Guillermo in a few days for a trip before the winter season starts.  We’ve been to Cayo Coco which is not too far away from the area we’ll be staying in.  I can not wait; it will be nice to relax and not have anyone need my help on something or complain about this or that…just lay back and get a workout in, walk and go snorkeling with my husband.  I’ll also be taking my Nikon camera with me and going bird watching and checking out the landscapes for beautiful shots.

I am kind of nervous about going to Cuba; since I’ve seen such great results with the 21 Day Fix and afraid of over indulging and putting back the weight/inches on that I’ve lost (I am at 19lbs and around 15 inches overall).  So to help stay on track we’ve written down our workouts from the videos, taking our fit deck cards and our tabata timer.   I usually do the lessons/classes the resorts offer.  We’ve this in the past on one of our trips so I hope we do it again.  I’ve worked too hard to go back and start that all over again.  I’ve also decided am taking my Shakeology for my breakfast shake. 🙂

When we get back we are starting the new P90 program from Tony Horton of Beachbody.   This program is for everyone; it has a cardio or resistance version you can work towards.  I may do this along the 21 Day Fix exercises depending on how intense this is.   I’ll be reading up on this in Cuba as it arrives tomorrow.

You can check it out the 21 day Fix or the P90 my Beachbody site.  Now a thought on the 21 Day Fix…it’s not to fix to your life it is to get you on track to healthier eating and exercising.  You know the saying it takes 21 days to form a habit.  Well this is 21 days to a healthier lifestyle a fitter happier you! 

I am gonna gloat a bit – I was at kettlebell class and at work the other day and people who hadn’t seen me in awhile call me incredibly shrinking Sherry or comment I lost a lot of weight what did you do?  It is good to say just eating right, walking and exercising more. I’ve had others comment how great I look and happy they are that I am on to a healthier lifestyle; it feels good to hear I must say.  I say to my husband I sometimes feel guilty because I don’t feel like I am trying real hard (I still eat a few naughty things or have an extra drink…but then I get myself back on track)  but I guess I eat better and make myself get up in the mornings when needed to do my workout and make sure it gets done everyday so that’s a challenge in itself.

  • take washed cauliflower and run through grater disc on food processor
  • in a frying pan melt some coconut oil and some butter
  • 2 tsp ginger…we use fresh so may be stronger

  • 1 heaping tsp of turmeric (I we just kind of do our own thing…we only measure the turmeric)

  • then add your cauliflower and cook about 10 minutes
  • server up while hot

Asparagus

  • toss in sesame oil, salt & pepper then grilled to done

  • nothing done to it except grilled; we ended up nuking it for a minute as we think our thermometer is on the fritz.
