Anywhoodle - Bootcamp spa. Where to begin?
|Looking down from our balcony and the exercise pavilion - all the classes were held here|
They must have been shocked when I said - FEED ME! I'm 5 months pregnant - 1200 calories will get me through the morning workouts and that's it. HA! I definitely sensed a few evil eyes from other women there when my LARGER meals were brought out.

Then - they had exercise/aerobics classes from 9am-1pm. But - you might be scheduled for a treatment during that time. I was almost always scheduled for something at 11am. So, I usually did a class or two - then went for a treatment, then played with my cute niece before lunch.

To add to it all - my family was staying in the villa - separate from the normal suites. It was up a hill and we were on the second floor. This is supposed to be a health spa - so elevators or anything like that were illegal. My calves were so tight after the first day there - that even the gal that gave me a pedicure told her friends about my rock hard calves. HA!

The last day there - I pulled out my calf sleeves - just to walk.
I am happy to admit that I only had two pregnancy related tear filled breakdowns. One - was when they rescheduled something and didn't tell me until I showed up. Then they wanted to reschedule it during my one planned nap time that I really needed. The other - was when I decided to go on the golf-course hike instead of the hills hike on one of the days. I absolutely HATE admitting that I am physically incapable of anything. I also chose not to do the 200-step challenge at the end of our last hike - but for some reason - I was okay with that decision. :)
