Hi, friends! Hooray! It’s finally starting to feel like summer is on the way! It’s about time since we had such a longgggg, cold winter, and I am desperately in need of sunshine! 🙂 Last weekend, I was having major flashbacks to Mal and my amazing WODs and Paleo Retreat that we took a few years ago. We have SUCH great memories from that trip! After sweating it out most of the day, we spent a…

Day 2 at Esperanza started bright and early with a bootcamp workout on the beach right by the ocean. Raphael was our fearless leader and instructor for the 60-minute class. He had all sorts of exercise equipment as well as towels and bottles of water for us. And we were ready to get our sweat on! Raphael had us doing all sorts of plyometric exercises on the sand, which, of course, made them so much…

Hi, guys! Here’s the first part of my recap about my stay at Esperanza. Esperanza was incredible and easily one of the nicest (if not the nicest) resort I have ever stayed at. In fact, the folks at Esperanza told me that celebrities often stay there because of its high-quality service and amenities as well as its extreme privacy. There’s only one access point to Esperanza, so everyone who enters goes through a security checkpoint….

Good morning!! I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned this until now, but I’m leaving for Cabo San Lucas tomorrow morning to visit the Esperanza Resort. I was invited along with some other media people for a three-day, two-night, all-expenses paid trip. Incredible. The Esperanza Resort was awarded #1 resort, #1 spa, and #1 service by Travel & Leisure in 2010, so I am definitely looking forward to my time there and seeing what it is…

Hello, hello! Here’s my final recap of the “WODs and Paleo Retreat” with Destino Retreats and The Trip Tribe. I’ve really enjoyed recapping my trip for you guys, and I hope you’ve really enjoyed reading about it! Breakfast On the final day of our trip, I woke up tired and sore (four days of non-stop activity plus a throwdown will do that to ya!), so I was a little slow starting my morning, but once…

Day 3 of the “WODs and Paleo Retreat” was easily my favorite day of the entire trip. It was packed full of all sorts of adventures, lots of laughs, delicious eats, and, of course, fun CrossFit workouts! My day started bright and early with some blogging. The hotel has free internet in the lobby, so I parked myself at one of the tables and got to work. About 30 minutes after I started working, one…

Day 2 was a busy one! Breakfast It started with a delicious breakfast at the hotel. I ordered the fresh fruit plate with baked sweet potatoes and sausage on the side as well as a glass of freshly pressed green juice. Simple, delicious, nutritious. After breakfast, the group headed outside to the pool area for a sports medicine session with Ty and Josh. They shared a number of mobility and strengthening exercises, which were specific…

Our first morning in Cabo was pretty low-key, but by the afternoon, Mal and I were in the full swing of things with a hot, sweaty, and sandy WOD on the beach! Breakfast Mal and I both woke up hungry, so we immediately headed to Bar Esquina for breakfast. (FYI: The restaurant prepared a special Paleo menu for our group for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and all of the meals are included in the cost…

Greetings from Cabo! Mal and I are in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico as part of a sponsored trip with Destino Retreats and The Trip Tribe. (Here’s why!) We arrived on Wednesday afternoon, and I have been having THE BEST time ever since. CrossFit + vacation = AWESOMENESS! Just before our flight to Cabo, I surprised Mal with something I’ve been wanting to do since I created my Life’s To Do List when I was 22…

Hello, hello! Mal and I are off to Cabo today for the “WODS & Paleo Retreat” with The Trip Tribe and Destino Retreats. Woohoo! I plan to blog while I am away, but I also have some posts set up to publish, so be sure to pop in and see what’s happening on CNC. I still can’t believe we are going on this trip! Ahhhhh! I am SO pumped! Mental note: Do not forget passport….

As you know, Mal and I are head over heels in love with CrossFit. In fact, we love it so much, we visit CrossFit boxes and create our own travel WODs even when we’re on vacation. So when the folks from The Trip Tribe and Destino Retreats contacted me about attending their “WODS & Paleo Retreat in Cabo,” I didn’t even need to think about my response. (It was YES, obviously!) Destino Retreats was launched last year by Ty Texidor and Tovah…
