MONDAY & TUESDAY: Each group I bring to this retreat will be different, and I learned very quickly that this particular group was not a
“morning person”! LOL
For those of you who never saw the sunrise, here it is!
Kay was up early with me,
so we took advantage of that beautiful time of day.
I did Kay’s a.m. session downstairs in the basement. Most mornings we were out on the patio working out, but this particular morning it was a bit chilly so we stayed inside, opened up the doors, and enjoyed the view and ambiance of the ocean.
After the session we headed up-stairs for breakfast.
while the others
– just getting out of bed –
After breakfast I took the rest of the group out to the
beach for a morning pilates session.
This is me LOVING teaching pilates!
THE BEST GYM EVER!!!
We had the option of mixing a
Protein Meal-Replacement Smoothie
Chicken Salad Lettuce Wrap with Hummus & Avocado
(I think everyone chose this!)
For those of you wondering… YES! This is a vacation!
FIRST:: It’s SO awesome to be able to PAUSE all of life’s responsibilities and focus on nothing but
HEALTHY EATING & EXERCISE!
Here it becomes enjoyable… Its the perfect environment to focus and learn! If we can find a way to enjoy these important responsibilities, we will be able to make them a lifestyle!
SECOND:: From lunch until about 4:00 is all about YOU time. It was a time to enjoy the beach,
hang out by the pool, or explore
HISTORIC ST. AUGUSTINE!
There is so much to do and see in this unique place.
the SUNSET ROOF-TOP SESSION
Ok, so besides the beach, THIS is my favorite place to workout!
Just imagine all the FUN we had! LOL
Grilled Chicken and Fish
Lemon Quinoa Cilantro Chickpea Salad
We roasted potatoes, onion, and garlic together
and added fresh rosemary from my friend’s garden.
- enjoy the stars on the ROOF TOP DECK
- play Xbox 360 or pingpong
- watch TV or put on a movie
- play cards or board games
- go to the beach for night-time shell hunting 🙂
We were serious SHELL HUNTERS.
We went out about 11:30 pm because it was
LOW LOW TIDE!
We were treasure hunting 🙂
Chis is standing in a place that was completely under water during high-tide.
This guy had a bad night.
Soon after we saw him, I found a few shark teeth!
I’ll post pictures of them in a later post when I show off
ALL of my BEACH BLING I found.
The next post I will let you in on our
