Well I did it, I conquered my fears of swimming in public!! Our hotel is directly on the beach! It’s so awesome!! I was so excited about it that I changed into my bathing suit as soon as we got here and off we went!! Yes people, I swam in the pool!!
I sat right there on that white lounge chair on the right by the pool! haha
This is my first time in a pool in probably 12 years! Literally it as before I started college and I started college in 2000!! Crazy, right? I had such a great time! I did a hand stand, I was doing leg kicks, swirls and twirls, contests for holding our breath, you name it we did it haha I was like a fish in there lol
And then, if that wasn’t enough, we decided to walk down to the beach and guess who went in the water….THIS GIRL!!! lol I haven’t gone in the ocean in probably 20 years!!! (Literally have a fear of the black death ocean haha) When I was 10 I was swimming in the ocean in Maryland, on vacation, and I turn around…shark. No joke. I didn’t panic but my aunt sure as hell did, I swam as fast as I could doing the doggie paddle lol My aunt came in and pulled me out. Not that I was very far out there, but I was a good distance from the shore. Turns out it was only a sand shark (they come close to the shore) but you trying telling that to a 10 year old lol I haven’t gone in since! So this my friends was MAJOR for me haha
My brother’s girlfriend was just like ‘DO IT!’ haha And I did!! lol I will not lie, the whole seaweed thing is completely disgusting and my brother kept throwing it at me haha I didn’t like the feeling of it brushing up against my legs…and even worse all I could think about was the fact that this is what they use in sushi hahahaha GROSS!!!
On top of conquering two big swimming fears I also laid by the pool in just my swimsuit and soaked up some good ole vitamin d…of course that vitamin d also burned my a$$ as it turns out lol I’m red like a cherry! Oh well, cause I’m going back out again tomorrow!!! hahahaha So fun woohoo!!!
That’s not all folks, I also had cereal at a restaurant while my brother and his girlfriend ate banana nut waffles and chocolate chip pancakes and my Mom ate a garden omelet and homefries! Chocolate chip pancakes are my favorite!!! That was a tough one to swallow but the waitress gave me my little box of Honey Nut Cheerios and I was happy!!
After doing a little shopping I went to the grocery store and we bought stuff for the room so I could continue to eat healthy. Had a nice sandwich for lunch and then treated myself to a semi bad dinner. I had 1 cup of fried clam strips, they were amazing and I won’t eat them anywhere else so I had to have them! I paired it with some nice steamed broccoli and afterwards we played some mini golf and I treated everyone to ice cream. That’s right they ate almond joy, cake batter and strawberry cheesecake ice cream…with sprinkles…while I ate a very delicious nectarine!! Damn I’m good hahaha
Now here I am so excited to go to bed because I’m going to get up early in the morning, walk down to the beach and watch myself a sunrise!!! haha What a great day!!! Goodnight all!!!
P.S. I came in last in minigolf…clearly I need to step up my game haha Oh and I forgot to bring pants other than the ones I’m wearing!! lol It’s ok though I found an Old Navy and bought myself some jeans!
