Vacation Blues – Colleen At The Ridge

Fun Vacation In Jamaica

I had the best vacation (except for the fact that my kids weren’t with me and I will never leave them for 5 nights again)!

I have been working so hard with Annie and The Ridge Athletic Club to get back in shape.  I thought about exercising while I was in Jamaica.  Actually, I did pool aerobics the first day, but that’s it.  I did drink lots of fruity rum drinks.  Does that count as my serving of fruit?

The breakfast was amazing.  I just had a plate piled with fresh mango and papaya.  I also ate as much seafood as I could find.  Did I mention I had alot of fruity, high calorie rum drinks?  Then I got home and was sick.  I don’t know about you, but I never lost my appetite.  I was craving mac and cheese and bread.

I would like to welcome the 5 pounds I gained in the last week.  Yikes.  I know Annie will help work it off of me, and I am not going to worry about it.  I think that’s key in changing your way of life, and trying to lose weight.  We all have those days, or in my case, those weeks!  There is no way I could go to an all inclusive resort and stick to my way of life.  I don’t say diet, even though diet really means what you eat.  I think it has a negative connotation, and I don’t think anyone should go on a “diet.”  That’s just my opinion!

I came home sick.  Not a shocker, because I get sick every time I fly.  I have taken a few extra days off of exercising, and am ready to get back to it.  Also, I don’t feel as tan as I could be, so I may hit the tanning booth at The Ridge, or the Spa, or the treat counter that serves delicious coffees!

I love The Ridge, it’s kind of one stop shopping for the body and mind.  I hope to see you there!
