Ok, ok, sorry for the abundance of pictures, but I just had to share some of my favorite pictures of our vacation. Upon arrival to the One&Only Palmilla Resort in San Jose del Cabo, we received the freshest papaya & strawberry popsicles along with weather that could not have been more beautiful! It was such a delight to completely shut off; to make the experience even more relaxing, Michael surprised me with a couple’s massage at their gorgeous spa [ see below ].
I definitely “rebelled” in Cabo: I certainly can admit I substituted water for tequila, forgot to wear my retainer, & had my far share of the most heavenly popcorn, chocolate soufflé. But the most amazing thing ever? Their ginger margaritas with blanco tequila & fresh squeezed lime juice…clearly, I am ready to go back!
+ Skinny vacation tips: I brought along a workout DVD [ put to use three times ], to keep me full every morning I ordered fruit & eggs for breakfast, & after the cleanse, I honestly didn’t feel the need to stuff my face.
If you’re going on vacation anytime soon, pack what I call a “snack pack.” Mine typically include raw bars, three apples, a banana, hummus packs, baby carrots, 100-calorie pack pretzels, & kid-sized Pirate’s Booty bags. I ate something healthy before ever dinner & it really helped. Cheers to summer!
