Viva Cozumel!

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Hola! I have had the pleasure of spending the last 6 months in the tropical paradise, Cozumel Mexico. Although I have used the time to be more active, I still put on 7 pounds here. I fell in love with scuba diving, and usually make it out 2-3 times a week. I also swim in the ocean on a fairly regular basis. My downfall has been the food and drinks. The food here is incredible, cheap, and available everywhere. Daily there are guys who go up and down streets selling ice cream and pan dulce (sweet bread). As well, it is not uncommon to meet up with friend for cervesas. I did not realize just how many calories it added until I recently started tracking calories!
We have to pack up and start the drive home in 11 days, so I am starting to establish workout and healthy eating habits before we get home. I'm so happy I found Sparkpeople, because it seems like a great source of advice and encouragement. I have tried to lose weight in the past, but have lacked the drive and motivation. I'm excited for the path ahead this time.

    SUch luxury to be able to dive anytime throughout the week. Wouldn't it be great to live right beside a great dive site!
