MY LATEST RECIPES

for a girl like me it’s at an all inclusive resort in Los Cabos, Mexico.

You know exactly what I mean.:) No cleaning, cooking or grocery shopping. Although I love the last one.

Only me, myself and I for a week…

WOW!

Alex couldn’t come for many reasons: work and mostly kids.

I  had a time of my life! Wouldn’t you?! Here?

Last time I had to worry only about myself was 7 years ago before the kids. It felt weird in the beginning. Weird like I couldn’t even decide which book to buy at the airport. I haven’t read a book in years. Had no idea what I like anymore.

Once high and above I realized once again what a beautiful world we live in.

I love all inclusive resorts for many reasons but the main one being you “shut off” your brain.

I have been to many all inclusive resorts but never this way.

I mean lifestyle wise. I was exercising every day and carefully selecting my food while enjoying it.

Here is my workout schedule for the last week:
Tuesday – 5 K run on a beach.
Wednesday – Fire 30
Thursday – Recharge – basically a 20 minute yoga stretch. My muscles were sore after a run on the beach.
Friday – 4 K run on the beach. For some reason it was much harder than on Tuesday. And hotter. I barely made it.
Saturday – HIIT 25
Sunday – rest
Monday – HIIT 20

If you want not to gain any weight at an all inclusive resort you have to work out.

As strong willed as you might be, there will be a lot of temptations and I guarantee you will exceed your recommended daily calorie intake.

It’s extremely easy to work out while on vacation because you are … on vacation! All resorts have gyms besides beautiful outdoors and AC hotel rooms. I brought a laptop, placed it on a bed and worked out in a “hallway” of my room.

Air conditioned room is priceless for working out in +35 Ts.

I also wrote a post on Surviving the all inclusive buffets without braking the scale.
