Painful cost of relaxation and fun

by JimmyPeterson on April 8, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Just got back from spreak break where I took a very fun cruise to the Bahamas! My favorite part I would have to say was the 24 hour buffet! Which was painful to see my belly blow up like a balloon! We visited to major cities in the bahamas and spent time on the beach well the first day... since after that I got so burnt i had blisters. Thats When the relaxation kicked in because afterwards i just layed around and relaxed and ate even more! All i can say is it was somewhat worth it because the relaxation was very much needed!
