Wow, what a day for me! It was very exciting. Starting with my weigh in (Um, guess who is in the 230's now? I'll give you a hint, she's got a giant smile in the picture above!) After which I went to the Kingfisher Resort for their awesome brunch followed by a wonderfully relaxing time in their Hydropath.
Can you say "delicious"? I can, this brunch was absolutely mouthwatering! There was a whole room full of gourmet foods to choose from. We ordered a couple of mimosas to start off the festivities and then dug right in! I definitely had way too much food. I made the choice to do so, and actually did make some healthier choices than I would have in the past, so all in all, I'm happy with my choices. I didn't eat ALL of the food pictured, but I did have a fair amount.
This was so awesome. First we checked in, and had some time to spare, so we got changed and headed outside to the hot tub. It was a very stormy day, so sitting outside in the hot tub, was extra cool today! Here is my friend Amber and I getting ready to go downstairs to the Hydropath.
THIS, is me in my bathing suit... eeek! I can say that it is a huge improvement in what that thing looked like on me during the summer.
Once we were ready we headed down. It started with a shower, followed by a lumbar massage hot tub! After which we entered a waterfall station. There were four different waterfall spots to choose from, each offering different water falls targeting different areas on the body. My favortite was the scalp massage one. Then we moved on to the eucalyptus scented steam room, which got really hot. Then came the glacier falls shower (brrrr). Amber pretty much dared me to stay in the freezing water for the entire 10seconds, so since I'm a sucker for a challenge, I did it!.
Once we were finished freezing our tata's off, we entered the river walk pictured below. One side was warm, and the other side was cool, and each one had a series of jets that massaged your legs as you slowly make your way through.
Then came the mineral pool with Epsom salts, and minerals that help detoxify your body. This was so relaxing. There was a bubble seat in this pool, as well as a rain cloud. I could have stayed for hours.
After the mineral pool came the scrub and tub station, where we got to exfoliate and relax in stone tubs until they kicked us out! We headed upstairs to their quiet room, where we relaxed in loungers overlooking the ocean and chatted before getting showered up and heading home.
Below is me, post relaxation!
It was so nice to have a day to just treat myself. No kids, no phone, no noise (well other than water). I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated afterwards, and I can't wait to go back!
