Mr. BMX and I are definitely not everyone’s cup of tea for vacationing. We are not huge on being overly busy or seeing every single site…but we are VERY active, followed by very lazy. We are not foodies, so while we might want a good piece of fresh fish…the next morning we’ll have $1.50 eggs and munch on beef jerky until we realize it’s time for dinner and then find something else.
Luckily for us…we are the perfect traveling partners. This weekend was the downtime I truly needed to recharge from work stress (hello 10 hour days nice to see you again). We biked, we went on a glass bottom boat tour, we kayaked, we walked, we sat on our balcony and made up stories about the boats passing us filled with snorkelers, divers and fishers, we read, we slept.
The view was amazing of the reef..but totally freaky because with Memorial day there were just soooo many boats and as you can see top right, we accidentally went over a diver!!
I’ll do anything for great abs…ok almost anything. What I didn’t realize until recently is that many of the activities I do daily and for fun should be enough to create those abs, if done correctly.
That’s right…running can create great abs if you are using correct posture. I notice it most when I pick up speed, my abs tighten. So this weekend as we went out for a kayaking adventure in the mangrove trees of Key Largo our instructor told us “don’t use your arms, use your abs and you won’t tire out so quickly”.
Mr. BMX and I thus spent every 15 minutes looking at each other and alternating between comments about beauty and “are you using your abs?” Umm yeah that hottie is totally my husband.
AHHH life is good.
Have you ever been kayaking? We love it and have now gone in the Keys, Costa Rica, Cancun, Orlando, Missouri and somewhere else…hmm where was that?! Anyhow great fun that I suggest you all try and see if you can work your abs more than your arms.
