After getting home at 6am this morning (was a really good night out!) there was only one thing I could do today and that of course was relax at the beach and soak myself in the crystal clear turquoise waters of Payne’s Bay along the West Coast of Barbados. I really could have stayed there all day. Total bliss!
I had purchased some goggles yesterday actually as the plan is to swim every Sunday moving forward. Today I did 3 sets of 200m swims, mainly front crawl. Felt good. I want to do it more often as swimming is an exercise I enjoy and burns lots of calories and swimmers always have good lean bodies. Importantly for me also it’s low impact, so for my size much better than running.
6am – 1 granola bar
11am – green tea, 3 ryvita
1:30pm – 2 slices of breadfruit
3pm 1 banks beer
6pm – grilled mackerel fillet and risotto
What a wonderful day. I am so blessed to live in Barbados and have the beach at the bottom of the road. I really must stop taking it for granted!
