Don’t Laugh At this Exercise + Day 2 in Punta Cana – the Sunburn
…no seriously. Don’t laugh or your abs will hurrrt In a good way!
One of the questions I get a lot in emails and on the blog is what my favorite ab exercises are. So, I’m going to start a tab on the blog called abs when I get back from this little paradise I’m in.
Without further ado, here is an ab exercise that’s no joke (and thank goodness!)
How many days per week do you do ab work?
Well we are having a serious BLAST here in Punta Cana!!
This place is basically a lovers paradise and I never want to return home! Unfortunately, Shane and I are both pretty sunburnt today. Ouch.
To get this lovely red color, we’ve been swimming in the ocean a LOT:
I think swimming in the ocean is always my top activity while going somewhere tropical
There’s also been a lot of two-handed euchre going on. When we need some shade or when it’s night time, we take it “inside” to a bar with some tables so I can whoop Shane’s booty in some cards 😉
And yesterday we actually made it to the gym! There’s absolutely NO shortage of time here, and we kinda felt like it, so why not? While Shane lifted, I busted out a quick 3 mile run, followed by a few lifting exercises (lateral raises, dumbbell squats, and tricep pushups)
Me running Woo! Shane says another gym trip is in store today…but I may have to skip out on this one. I’m feeling lazy 😛
The food here is OK…that said, I at least don’t think I’ll have a tough time getting in enough protein or veggies. I was a little worried about that. Got my protein in at breakfast:
And veggies in, via gazpacho + veggie sandwich for lunch!
For dinner, we headed to a nice, romantic tapas restaurant by the beach.
I was very impressed with the selection here! They have no shortage of food for vegetarians Naturally, dinner was also pretty veggie-heavy.
That’s Dominican kale!
However, the desserts…
And the drinks…
Are where it’s at…:)
And with that,
I’m off to go live it up, island style!
I hope you’re enjoying the vacation posts! I have pre-written posts lined up, but I figured since there’s free wifi, and we have plenty of down time in the morning, I’d try and throw up a post once a day I know some people like reading blogger’s vacation posts, while some would rather skip. Do you like to read blogger’s vacation posts? Or do you prefer the daily/normal routine?
