Best Vacation Evah! And the Diet Started Yesterday.


June 2019

It’s been quiet over here in Fit Recovery land for a reason… I was away with my wife and kids, and my wife’s family on a cruise to Grand Cayman, Roatan, Honduras, Belize City, Belize, Belize (you better Belize it), and Cozumel (Cancun for us).

I didn’t write a thing for a week. I also did no work. For one full week, plus a day, I spent a grand total of 1 minute 13 seconds on the phone. I’ve never been so fortunate on vacation… not that I can remember, anyway.

Sadly, I brought a little more home than some fantastic photos… the food on the cruise was so good I brought home a couple more than a few extra pounds. I’ve got some work to do.

Thankfully, I had a break in the daily rain and got a nice little 18 miler in last evening. I’d skipped breakfast and had a sensible lunch so all that was left was a non-ridiculous dinner. Mrs. Bgddy made her most excellent chili. A bowl and I was off to bed.

It’s good to be back and getting into the swing of things again, but that was one heck of a vacation.

Only a few more weeks on the out-of-town job, so I’m hoping to get back to a more regular schedule soon.

All photos taken by me, with my Galaxy S9 in a Lifeproof case, underwater. I’ve never experienced a leak, though I did wreck the face on a rock on the last excursion of the trip, swimming in a cave… and Lifeproof replaced the face as a part of the warranty. Folks, the quality stands up to the name.

      Sadly, all 3 gigs of the photos I took won’t do Roatan justice…. I can’t wait to go back. Best snorkeling I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

  1. Most excellent, brother! Packing on a pound or two over a proper holiday is a good thing. It means you did things right and fully unwound and relaxed!

    Welcome back! Sounds like a great, well-earned trip. You’ll lose those few pounds in next to no time.

    Wonderful! Glad you got a break and as hard as you “work” on your bike, you’ll shed those pounds easily.

    I agree with tempocyclist 🙂 Few more pounds is a good sign!!

    • bgddyjim says:

      That they’re actually coming off is a better sign! LOL. Pain in the @$$, man… they always come off ten times slower than they go on!

      • chape says:

        Hahaha! That’s true!!! It’s the extra fee vacation they don’t tell when you buy the tickets, LOL! But I’m sure you’ll get rid of them in a couple of weeks 💪
