Let’s pick up where we left off, shall we?
Like I mentioned in the last post, Garza Blanca is all inclusive resort – and let me tell you, Cory and I took full advantage of it 😉 I’m actually genuinely surprised I didn’t gain 10 pounds on this trip.
Cory and I are creatures of habit, so even when we’re away from home we quickly create some sort of loose routine.
Every morning, Cory and I would lazily head over to breakfast, have coffee, and chat. Cory was much more adventurous than I, but I really don’t like to mess with my favorite meal of the day.
After breakfast, I’d let my food baby digest before heading over to the pool. We’d lay out in the sun and read for a few hours (I read two books in five days – both of which I highly recommend!) before it was time to eat again.
I’m not a huge luncher. I’d much rather eat snack-y foods all afternoon. So while I was on vacation, that’s what I did! I had chips & guacamole for lunch – everyday. It was glorious.
Obviously, I had to wash it down with a delicious vodka drink. God forbid I choke on something 😉
After lunch, we’d lay around some more – you know, to work up an appetite for dinner. I hate to admit it, but I didn’t take many food pictures. Dry your eyes, it’ll all be okay. I was much more interested in the scenery. I mean, really, Beach pics vs. Chicken pics?
The sunset views during dinner were breathtaking. The phrase, God is an artist, kept coming to mind. The colors, the ocean – everything. It was gorgeous.
Capturing the sunset was not attempted in this picture, just in case you were unsure.
I attempted to take pictures of the sunsets, but my camera did them no justice.
Capturing sunset attempted. Failed.
Last night, we were obviously unimpressed as we ate our first homemade dinner in a week and looked out over downtown Richmond, Virginia. Ah, back to reality. The trip was great while it lasted!
Let’s chat – When you’re on vacation, do you let healthy eating fall by the wayside for a few days? Or do you stick to your guns and stay on track? I let it fall to the wayside. Daily drinks and desserts for me, please!
