Happy Saturday! So, after 2 weeks of frustrating internet at work, 2 amazing weeks in Jamaica, and then another 2 frustrating weeks, I’m finally home! I’m working on getting a job here in Prince George (instead of working in the middle of nowhere), so I’ll have internet all the time. How can I build my blog without the internet?
Jamaica was amazing. The country is absolutely gorgeous – and most importantly, nice and warm! We did a lot of relaxing, indulged in their great cuisine, played beach volleyball and went on a few different adventures. Would I go back? Definitely. Some of the excursions we went on include: snorkeling, zip lining, a boat cruise, climbing up Dunn’s River Falls, some Jamaican bobsledding and a little tour off the tourist map. Again, I had no complaints about the food at our resort. Every meal was delicious, especially the jerked chicken (omg)! I brought home jerk spice and managed to ask one of the cooks about his secrets. My plan is to try and match their succulent, mouth-watering, spicy chicken dish.
Below are a few pictures of our trip.
I’m also starting my first 90 Day Challenge. Today is day 3! I’ve been going to the gym and eating healthy, but I want to push myself to get to my goal. My goal at the end of the 90 days is to:– Gain overall strength (specifically upper body and core) – Gain 5 lbs of lean muscle – Tone – Increase my energy – Increase my cardio – Be able to complete 30 successful pushups
I’m pretty pumped! With all of the working out I’ve been doing (even before the challenge), I feel like I have a metabolism of a teenager again – I’m hungry alllllll the time. I eat small meals throughout the day and get enough protein and other nutrients. I just finished Sports Nutrition with school, so I was able to calculate the number of calories, protein, carbohydrates and fat I need for my level of activity.
I do need people for case studies, so let me know if you have any health goals you want to achieve. Also, if you’re interested in joining me in the 90 Day Challenge, send me an email, I’d love to fill you in!
That’s all for today! Hope you’re having an awesome weekend! Check back tomorrow as I have a delicious recipe for maple cinnamon almond butter.
