Hi! I’m writing to you because I really want to share the story of my past summer and the lifestyle changes I have made. Don’t get me wrong, my life was great before, but now I feel ten times better about myself and just in general. What I did was simple: I woke up one day after a tennis tournament, which I lost earlier than I probably should have due to lack of endurance and not being in the best physical shape, so I decided that my goal for the summer was to change my eating habits and live the fit life. After all, food is fuel.
As of that moment, every morsel of food I ate was clean and organic and I even tried to go gluten-free whenever I could. Thankfully, Chef Phil over at the resort helped me out by providing many healthy options on the menu. I always opt for the salmon dish because Lago Mar just so happens to have wild salmon, which you don’t find just anywhere. When I’m in the mood for a change-up, I’ll go for the pineapple salad and add some grilled shrimp on top. That salad is the bomb, and I’m not just saying that because I’m in love with the grilled pineapple and fresh raspberries on top. Oh wait…I am! I am really enjoying Phil’s new menu, which features several gluten-free items as well as an organic chicken that I have already tried and is amazing.
Additionally, I added many workouts to my fitness routine, many of which I complete in the gym in our fitness center using our state-of-the-art equipment.
I definitely pampered myself with many of the available treatments in the spa as well. These include facials with Shane and massage therapy to help with circulation and alleviate soreness from my many hours of training. As a result, I was able to begin the school year with a newfound confidence from my fit body to clear skin.
