Last night I spent a couple of hours comforting two sobbing children. Why? About a month ago I entered a contest for an all inclusive stay at Delawana Inn on the May long weekend. Two weeks ago I got the most amazing email telling me our family won. The boys crying? That was because we were now back at home. I so get it.
We’ve been going to Delawana for four years now and it’s my happy place. The first year we went I brought running shoes and forced Hockey Playing Husband to jog around the resort with me. I climbed the rock wall, walked the Burma Bridge, went to the gym, kayaked, pedal boated and pretty much everything I could do, I did.
Since then my activity level has dropped each year until last year when I said screw it and decided to treat my vacation like one big hedonistic adventure that involved me being horizontal as much as possible. The only activity I participated in for the entire ten days I was there was water aerobics in the pool each morning which wasn’t so much me doing water aerobics as it was me waving my arms around and talking to other people while floating. It was water floatobics.
This past weekend, the moment I arrived at Delawana I could feel the tension leave my shoulders. I went into relax mode almost immediately. I was, in fact, so relaxed, I didn’t even read. Holding the book and moving my eyes was just too. much. effort. Instead, I just laid.
By the pool.
So there are no fitness updates today. Nothing inspirational to get you up and moving. Just me spending the weekend being sloth.
It was awesome.
p.s. I may have suggested to the people at Delawana that they put in movators throughout the resort so we don’t have to walk to get to things like “the pool” and “the food.”
