Mexico Vacation Recap!

I'm back! 

We had an amazing time in Mexico, and I am a little sad to be back home. :(
 This was my life for 7 days, and I enjoyed every second of it. 



We stayed at Secrets Maroma, which is just south of Cancun. The resort was amazing.


Even though there was a LOT of seaweed on the beach, the water was still beautiful, and we didn't let that stop us from enjoying the ocean.





Every morning I got up and had my coffee on the balcony. 

I will definitely miss this!


Then we would have a  protein shake and workout(only three of the seven days), eat breakfast at the buffet, and head out to the beach.  







After that, for most of the day we lounged by the pool, then went in for the lunch buffet or ate at the poolside grill, and then went back to the pool. We also played mini golf, ping pong, corn hole, and redneck golf at the resort. Then in the evening we went back to our room to get ready for dinner.






 We went out to the resort restaurants a few times. Our favorite was the Brazilian sword buffet and the Asian restaurant, where we watched an amazing cooking show. The food was great except for the sushi-it was my first time trying it! I did LOVE the fried ice cream for dessert. I think it was my favorite thing I ate of the whole trip! After dinner we went to a few of the nightly shows. The  AffAIR show(cirque du soleil type show) and Beatles tribute were both great


I ate so much yummy food, but to my surprise, I was actually down two pounds yesterday.
 We normally had 3 big meals and a couple of snacks each day(protein shake and quest bars). We don't drink, but I enjoyed unlimited diet cokes...cuz I decided to just be crazy on vacation! Haha. ;)
I ate potatoes, rice and fruit with pretty much every meal. 



I had NO freakin' idea what my calories or macros were and couldn't care less. I didn't even think about it!
I usually just sampled the desserts Matt got, with the exception of the fried ice cream-I ate that whole thing!  I also ate a ton of fruits and veggies along with the "bad" stuff. I was actually craving a big salad every night, and the dressing they used was awesome!

We did an excursion one day to the Mayan ruins in Coba, which was a lot of fun. We rappelled, zip lined, canoed, and then climbed to the top of the Nohoch Muul pyramid. 

We also swam in a cenote, which was really cool!


It was so hard to leave on the last day! I almost cried walking away from the beach. I would love to go to the beach every year, but it's just not realistic, unfortunately... sooo I never know when we'll be able to go back. :(
 But I'm having fun going through all of our pictures and be able to somewhat relive it!



























And for your viewing pleasure:

  2. It looks like you had such a wonderful time - you both look amazing too! You seem like you work pretty hard, so it's good to see you had lots of fun! I stayed a little further down than you in the past (Bahia Principe in Riviera Maya), and your pictures are making me want to go back BAD!

    I have to say though, I'll be glad to see you posting again! :).
