Astalavista Cuba....Hello Reality!

This would mark the last blog post of our Cuban vacation (but definitely not the last for *CaNdY FiT*!)

As mentioned in my last posting (The Catamaran Tour), dinner that evening "was one to remember!"

Why?!

It would be my last major cheat (sad story, I know!) before my competition in July.

Did I make the most of it? 

Of course I did (the moment I found out I could!) :)

Once we were all showered (from a hot & sweaty day on the boat), we got dressed and headed out to dinner....

Our last supper at Las Margaritas :(

Je l'aime SuperFit!

As we took our seats at the buffet, we enjoyed a great protein filled meal....

I had Fish, Bread & Hot Peppers!!!
(I love everything spicy!)

As soon as I was done my plate, I knew I'd be having ice cream!!!

Since this would be my last bowl for 3 1/2 months, I made it extra special....

Droool!!!
Vanilla and Choco Ice cream, Chocolate Chips, Fudge and Strawberry Topping
And a bite size piece of cake under all that FUn!!!!

"Mmmmm....Ice Creammmmmm....."
(Insert Homer Simpson Drool here)

SuperFit helped himself to a little treat too :)

Soon enough, there would be no more :(
(People around us didn't think I could finish my bowl!)

I debated scooping the leftovers with my spoon...

To my surprise, SuperFit said I could help myself to another round because the moment we were back, it would mark the end of any cheat meal or day before the competition!!! 

He said, and I quote:  "Go for it Fu, Get it out of your system!"

I was already on my way back to the desserts before he could finish his sentence!

And so here was Round 2...

I was so FU'in Happy!!!!
It was messy to say the least!

I finished it all!
(Of course I did!) lol

One INCREDIBLE, AMAZING, DELICIOUS SUGAR FILLED meal later....I was officially FUll

We decided to take a long walk (I wonder why?! lol) and take a FU last pictures before our vacation came to and end...

Posing on a Rock...
(I'm not sure what the significance is lol)

Pick-a-Boo!
FU sees You! ;)

Taking a break...
All that sugar tired me out ;)

It's always more FUn with SuperFit in the pic ;)

As the sun set, we saw Little Mavee out in the lobby and decided to play around for a while....

Boys and their toys.

Vroom Vroom!

Cuties!

We eventually had to call it a night....go to our rooms and pack :(

The next morning, we got up bright and early (normal hours for me), checked out, and helped ourselves to our last breakfast at the resort....

I had a Fruit, Yogurt & Cereal Bowl with Two Eggs
The Jam and Honey were mixed into this sweet goodness :)

As we cleaned ourselves off of any crumbs left over on our shirts, we waited in the lobby until our bus arrived...

Never a dull moment :)

Soon enough, we'd be sitting in it....

No more vacation for us :(

But, we did have one last cappuccino at the airport with our Protein Snack :)

I can't even say how many Capps we had during our entire trip!

Yum!

We eventually boarded our plane and landed, safely. 

The good news was....

The weather was gorgeous in Ottawa, so it made being back a little easier :)

SuperFit rode his new bike as soon as we got home...

He was anxious to get ridin'!

And I, well, I took a nap!

All in all, we had an incredible vacation and we couldn't have asked for anything more perfect than what we got! I'm definitely looking forward to our next :)

But, until then...

I had to get back to reality and back to my regular training and 'dieting' schedule! The wheels had to get rolling, which meant...

Being reacquainted with infamous body fat measurement calipers! Yipee!!! Not. lol.

Now...

I am officially 12 weeks away (as of April 23) from my first  competition!


Duty called (I answered) and...

I'm extremely excited for the journey ahead! 
Even if I can't have another bowl of ice cream (for a little while at least!) 

So, let's put our drinks up and cheers to what's to come :)

Wish me luck!

I'll have a Protein Shake ;)

Cuba ~ Day 6: The CaTaMaRaN Tour!

Finally! SuperFit had to get up extra early for our trip out to the ocean!

Surprisingly enough, his extra early was the exact time I woke up every morning lol

To prepare ourselves, we assembled our backpack with the following:

1. Towels;
2. Toilet Paper (they told us to bring some!);
3. Myo Lite Protein Bars;
4. Camera; and most importantly (although toilet paper is pretty crucial!)
5. Tickets to get on the Catamaran!

We'd later find out, I forgot to pack the sunscreen! (It was in another bag I had in the room!) Good thing we had a FU friends going on the tour as well (who were obviously better prepared), and who were more than generous with theirs (FUew)! ~ Thanks Rick and Nikki!

If it wasn't for them, we would have burnt to a crisp! (Like some people did within 30 minutes of getting on board!).

As soon as we were done getting ready for our adventure ahead, we quickly grabbed a bite to eat....

Black Coffee, Honey & Jam Mix, Toast and Eggs for me :)

Our fellow friend Rick had a Bacon Sandwich
We called it the Baconnator!!! 
He saved the other half for the boat ride.
I love Bacon, just so you know....
(I've had it once this year lol)

One quick FU'd FUel Up later, we were on the bus headed towards the Catamaran.

We weren't excited at all....

Nope. Not one bit ;)

Little did I know, 54 others would be on the boat as well. I've never been on a Catamaran, so the size of it wasn't at all what I was expecting. I thought 10 at most (I was wayyyy off!).

In line to get on The Catamaran

You can be sure we 'Shot Gunned' the 'netted' part of the boat! (More like we ran to it and claimed our territory!)

Let's just say, we got settled in quickly....

I took Gravol before boarding...
I suffer from major motion sickness!
Good thing I brought a bottle with me to Cuba!

SuperFit fell in...
(Not, lol)

The Boys Chillin'

Rick and Nikki :)

SuperFit knew I'd probably fall in....
(It would be typical of me)
So, I didn't stay on the edge too long
(I was holding on tight!)


It took a little while to set sail....

So we Relaxed and Patiently waited :)

As part of The Catamaran Tour, we'd be doing 3 activities:

1. Swim with the Dolphins (Yipee!!!);
2. Snorkel in the middle of the ocean; and
3. Hang out on a private beach for a FU hours and be served a SeaFU'd lunch!

When the boat finally set sail, we soaked up the rays of sunshine and enjoyed the mild breeze (including the FU clouds here and there to break up our roasting!)...

SuperFit getting us some Orange Crush :)

A Glimpse at the boat

Things we saw on our way to our first destination...

And, things we didn't see...

Although, our eyes definitely opened when we saw....

Dolphins!!!!

When we arrived to our first destination (an enclosed square area in the middle of the ocean split into four), we were asked to follow one of the guides to one of the four spaces.

We'd soon be lining up, waiting to play with these wonderful creatures!

I'd like to point out I have a huge fear of touching the bottom of pools, lakes, oceans, etc....I'm a big wuss! I hate not knowing what lays beneath me or what's nibbling on my leg....SuperFit knows this fear all too well.

The moment he stepped into the water and touched the bottom, he immediately said...

"FU, you're not going to like this one bit!" 
(As he proceeded to laugh and point out it was really disgusting lol)

I climbed on his back and stayed there for a good 3 minutes until I had no choice but to get off and have my feet touch the most slimy and gooey texture I've ever felt!

I stood on one FU't the whole time! (No lie! lol)

But, it was worth it....

This was awesome!!!!
A Kiss like no other
(Well, aside from SuperFit's lol)

SuperFit was having the time of his life!

This was truly an incredible experience! The closest I've ever been to Dolphins was when I was 10, visiting Marineland with my Fumily. You can't even compare the two! 

Next on our list was Snorkling....

SuperFit is a licensed Scuba Diver!

He's in there somewhere...

A quick stop later, we'd be on our way to the private beach....

Notice how tightly I'm holding on to the rope!

We were having a blast!!!

The Beach we were headed to!

When we docked, we were told to remember the name of the Catamaran: Folio 56782 (I made up the numbers, but there were numbers lol) 

After making a mental note of our boat name (Folio) and not the #, we made our way to the lunch area and had an amazing meal!!!

We later learned all boats have 'Folio' Numbers (Folio is not the name, it's the file number!)


Patiently waiting for the grub to arrive...

Our group!

Lobster, Cod,  Shrimp, Bread &
Peas?! lol

It looks a little messy, but delicious nonetheless!

There were also Fries.
I didn't have any.

All gone!!!
Minus half the cookie I ate...
I didn't have Fries but I had 1/2 a Cookie :)

The view from our table...

The moment we were done eating, we went for a walk along the beach side...

The sand was hot on our feet!
I'm not complaining :)

Group FUto!!!

Nikki and I enjoy the heat :)

Awwwww ;)

Enjoying the scenery!
It was our last day on the beach :(

What was all the hype over there?!

Coconut Milk!!!
It was Yummy!

This was a FUn way of toasting to a great day!

One of the Catamaran's taking us back to the Resort...
Getting one last shot of the beautiful beach!
I mean of SuperFit lol

We were definitely pooped by the time we boarded...

After an event filled day out in the sunshine...
We are well due for a little nap :)

I forgot to mention....

We left a little something behind in memory of our first vacation...

I've never done this before...
Can you tell?!
It says:
Cuba 2011 - Baby Fu and Kenny
That thing circling the words is supposed to be heart lol

By the time we got back, it was dinner time, and....it would be the best one of all!!!!

Stay Tuned to find out why and for our FUnal Day in Cuba on *CaNdY FiT*
