Vacation Fun and Food For Life Giveaway Winners

It's definitely taking me a while to get back into the swing of things after vacation, I just seem to be moving a little slower than usual today! I think I need one more day before I feel normal again, but until then I'll just look at my vacation pictures and wish I could do it all over again.

The first thing we did when we arrived was put on our bathing suits and head to the beach! This picture was right before we packed up, but it was actually really sunny the whole time we were there, we lucked out! 

Later that night we went to ROK sushi, which is hands down my favorite sushi restaurant ever. Their salmon sashimi is SO good.... so good doesn't even begin to describe just how amazing it is!

We also treated ourselves to a bottle of some amazing unfiltered saki. I've never been one to drink saki by itself, but this one was just perfect. 

Our hotel had a complementary breakfast, and while the biscuits and gravy weren't quite doing it for me, they did have hard boiled eggs so I got to have a pretty "normal" breakfast each morning. 

We ran into a bit of a snag with the gym situation. The closest gym didn't open until 11am (who does that?) and we didn't want to wait that late to get our day started, so we used the "gym" at the hotel. Basically I never want to see another Bowflex machine... most complicated thing ever! 

We did a few rounds of plyos and later that day we rode beach cruisers about 12 miles! So fun! 

Some random eats... 

Definitely got my seafood fix in-- this was grilled halibut, so fresh and tasty! 

We had such a great time, I ate ice cream, wait what!? Yes, ice cream. You know the sugary stuff full of dairy stomach ache goodness? Ahh. I'm still paying for it as my stomach looks like there is a balloon in it but it was worth it. I think.

  1. It looks like you had a really nice time! I love seafood, but just have never been "brave" enough to try sushi. I really should though.

  2. Sounds like you had an amazing time. You look awesome in your pics and so happy. :)

  3. I work for Bowflex - it's really not that bad of a solution for someone that can't get to the gym, if you don't mind me asking, what did you find confusing about it?

    1. Oh my goodness I don't know if it was missing pieces or what but we were looking at the pictures trying to figure out how how to do the leg press and couldn't get it to work... we barely figured out the leg extension and I'm not sure we got it 100% right because it felt really funny. I suppose it would have been a lot easier with some sort of instruction booklet...

  4. if you ever in need of an ice cream fix again and don't want to have a bloat baby, try Coconut Bliss. It's an amazing ice cream made from coconut milk and agave. I have a dairy issue as well and am obsessed with ice cream so this saved me!

  5. I just wanted to say i LOVE YOUR BLOG!! You are adorable and have such awesome recipes!
