I know, I know. “Healthy” and “honeymoon” usually don’t appear in the same sentence together, but after the sickness that I so lovingly like to refer to as the plague, I’m a bit scared to go without a good sweat for too long a period of time.
Usually I’d join the love club and get my grub and relaxation on, but like I mentioned in a past post, I’m an FBG and we have tendencies. My tendencies and FBG good luck led me to Travaasa Resort — a resort that provides oodles and oodles of active goodies to choose from — as our honeymoon spot. Yoga is offered throughout the day as well as circuit training. There are walks on the beach, Bosu ball workouts, aqua aerobics, boot camps, core workouts and meditations. What?!
I wish I could say that I alone chose this resort because I’m a honeymoon travel whisperer, but alas, I am far from an expert. However, I am lucky! A couple of months ago I attended a snazzy event at a spa in LA that was promoting the Travaasa resorts in Hana and Austin, TX . I was enjoying the event immensely; trying out the foods, losing consciousness in the massage area and meeting some great people. It was one such awesome soul who found out that Mark and I were researching honeymoon spots and sent us a free, three-night stay at Travaasa. Talk about love, luck and serendipity! With the room taken care of, all we have to worry about is food, spa and activities.
And, oh, the activities we want to do! Remember, after you work out long enough, it becomes a part of your normal day-to-day activities, so all of those activities sound absolutely wonderful to me. Honeymoons are expensive and sweating in the Hawaiian breeze is even more expensive, so we’ll see what we’re able to do on our budget.
I’m laughing at myself that these are the things I’m concerned about on the honeymoon. So romantic, I know.
So I ask all my lovely FBGs who comply to (little) budgets: How do you remain active on vacation? And for all my Fit Bottomed Brides, did you stay active on your honeymoon or let it all go in the spirit of love and leisure? —Tish
