Work and Play

So how’d we end up here? Work and play you might say, plus we got an invitation and a place to stay. Gosh we know generous people! We are always amazed at the kindness and thoughtfulness they show. Unreal!

But we are here training and working (a little).

A little bit of swim coaching … pool and ocean



A little bit of nutrition work and healthy snack making…..


Raw fuel cookies anyone?


A little bit of riding……


And of course, a little bit of enjoying….

One of the locals who is training with us (Chris), just happens to be the manager and the sommelier of this divine place.. the Mahogany house. We have been there 3x already, and were spoiled. Okay I was spoiled. Wino at it’s finest here!



So that’s word.

Now, if it would only stop raining. Off to practice my RAIN AWAY dance.

What’s your work and play today?

  32. Staff training session at 10:30am. Should be tough but fun.
    Gardening in the afternoon, tending to the tomatoes, zucchini and greens.
    Maybe a hike in the late afternoon.

    All good.

  33. Work and play…the only way it’d be better was if it were just play!.
    Although your work seems like play 😉

    Miss you lady!

  34. Gosh, I don’t swim much these days but I’d gladly crank out the yardage to swim in that pretty pool!

    • oh I agree! and to get a tan. haha.
      BTW, congrats on your ebook!! i need to buy it!

      • Yes, a tan! I always used to love when we’d go on training trips for swimming because we’d get the best tans, ha. Thank you for the congrats, I actually just bought your healthy bites e-book because I’ve been meaning to for months and this just reminded me!

  35. now that it’s the weekend….no work. just play! flying home to see the family this weekend!
