Whale Watch Wednesday and Back-On-Track Thursday

Wednesday was that rare thing for me: a complete rest day. Not that much actual resting occurred since we had to be up bright and early for a whalewatching trip. Which, by the way, was totally worth it and definitely the high point of the trip for me. Hell, it may have been the high point of the decade for me :) About an hour into it we found ourselves in the midst of a pod of wild bottlenose dolphins, one of which was only a baby. Cutest thing I've seen in years. It stuck close to mama's side, doing everything she did. Just a perfect little miniature dolphin from its teeny-tiny flukes to its stubby little bottle-nose.

So, no workout. Also, no sunburn even though we were out on the boat for hours. Vanicream SPF 60 rocks!

I hit the resort fitness center with renewed enthusiasm today. No, I didn't. I mean, I worked out and all, but not enthusiastically. I started with a dumbbell complex:

15 squats
15 overhead presses
15 bent-over rows
15 lunges each side
15 mountain climbers each side

I did that 3x, using 15 lbs for all sets

Then I did a "12 days of Christmas" ladder:

1 tuck jump
2 pullups
3 burpees
4 jump lunges
5 pike pushups
6 skater hops
7 box jumps
8 walking lunges
9 decline pushups
10 SB roll-ins
11 jump squats
12 spiderman pushups

That was mostly it. I also walked on the treadmill for a bit, and did a little core work.

In other news I had 3 mai tais yesterday. I wonder if I dare attempt some sort of tropical beverage ladder today. No, I think not.
