I Lost My Plane Ticket

At the suggestion of some of you guys, I accidentally-on-purpose lost my plane ticket back home πŸ˜‰ Guess I’m stuck here??


(The water is bluer than the sky!! AMAZING)

As much as I really would love to live here and am having a lovely time, I’m looking forward to the usual hustle and bustle and can’t wait to see those furry puppy faces <3



Tomorrow is our last full day here (Jeni and her pilot get here in the afternoon!) and then we leave Tuesday.

Last night, we had a beautiful meal at the fancy restaurant at the resort- you have to make reservations 48 hours in advance.

I was an outfit repeater πŸ™‚


and the pilot looked seksi as ever πŸ˜€


Before dinner, we had our photos taken by a professional photographer on the beach and around the resort. While we liked a handful of them, in the rest, my hair looked like a hot mess because of the wind- it was sticking up all over the place! We have a do-over later today… so I might wear my hair up instead.

I apologize for the dark photos from dinner but still want to post them- the food was wonderful.

Check out the candle holder:


We had champagne:


I started with the amaretto-scented pumpkin soup with balsamic reduction


and had the grilled sea bass as my entree, with vegetables instead of potatoes.


The fish was so lovely– perfectly cooked and it melted in my mouth, like buttah.

We took our champagne glasses with us and laid in a tikki hut while listening to the outdoor reggae band.

Before long, my sweet tooth came knocking– I think I’ve gotten used to the β€œsomething sweet” after dinner thang πŸ™‚


I ate the pesto off the bread, half of the poached pear, a strawberry, half of the blackberry cookie and a bite of the brownie.


We’re off to bfast and then hitting up the beach!

See ya later today <3

    Vacation is always hard to leave…I always hate the laundry I go home to. But you still have 2 full days left, so enjoy every second of your HONEYMOON! πŸ™‚

  16. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on May 16, 2010 at 11:22 am

    This trip just looks and sounds so incredible! I can’t wait until you let us know what resort it is when you get home- they’re definitely getting a lot of good free publicity! Maybe they sound give you a chocolate goody bag to take home πŸ˜‰ Just saying! Enjoy your next two days!

    • Fitnessista on May 16, 2010 at 11:24 am

      hahah that would be AWESOME πŸ™‚

  17. Kris | iheartwellness.com on May 16, 2010 at 11:24 am

    Love your cute skirt! Where is it from?

    Ahhh cherish this last of day of vacay, but also remember you can go right back when you want πŸ™‚

    The dinner looks fabulous! I am always so scared to go to an all inclusive as I hear the food is poor and I wouldn’t be able to eat anything then! I am picky with the quality of my food 😐 But yours sounds great!


  18. Allison @ Food For Healing on May 16, 2010 at 11:54 am

    you’ve got the cutest clothes!

    i was wondering if you were ever just going to “lose” your plane ticket so you would never have to go home. I would do the same thing haha

  19. Julie @ Pickley Pear on May 16, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    I’m very jealous of all your great trips and dinners! Are there any single “pilots” out there?! πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on May 16, 2010 at 4:19 pm

      i know many single and eligible pilots πŸ™‚ if you ever happen to be in valdizzy, let me know!

  20. Paige (Running Around Normal) on May 16, 2010 at 2:04 pm

    Still so happy for you guys to experience all this πŸ™‚
    Hope the last few days are amazing!

  21. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on May 16, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    I feel that quote is so applicable to me. I’m not a daredevil, but recently my friends have pushed me to do crazy things in rock climbing like fall 15 feet on purpose! I ended absolutely LOVED the thrill of the fall.

  22. Karly (Becoming My Best Self) on May 16, 2010 at 4:23 pm

    Hi Gina, Looks like you and the pilot are having an amazing trip and awesome weather! I am not sure if I missed it or not, but are you willing to share the name of the resort you stayed at. It looks beautiful and I would love to keep it in mind for upcoming trips I plan on taking. Thanks. Safe travels home, Karly

    • Fitnessista on May 16, 2010 at 4:35 pm

      hey karly! most definitely- i’ll give all the info on tuesday, the day we’re leaving (for privacy reasons)
      have a great day <3

  23. katerina on May 16, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    I am enjoying your vacation posts too much, I totally think you need to stay away another week. We can all live vicariously through you!

  24. Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) on May 16, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    You look gorge- love that outfit!!


  25. Melissa @ For the Love of Health on May 16, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    you two make such a cute, perfect couple!
    looks like a great time- I def understand the desire to get back to routine too- that’s the great thing about vacation!

  26. Katherine on May 16, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    I was about to give you serious advice about how technical records are kept and you can still check into your flight (computer nerd here) until I realized you were kidding… switch the direction of that plane ticket and I’ll head down to the beach happily!

  27. Casey @ Chasing Casey on May 16, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    Enjoy the last bit of your vacation!
