Day Two of my week with Desert Cliffs began with my usual 230 calorie bowl of oatmeal.
Then I was off to the Summit Gym, where clients take a variety of classes and have a wide range of workouts before and after hikes.
Summit Gym in St. George.
The first class I took was Body Balance. Don't let the name fool you. Karen taught full blast cardio and body sculpt for an hour. Be there at 8:00 AM on the dot with your mats, ball, weights, thera-band and any other devices of torture she requires. This lady is a power house and she is prompt! After burning 500-600 calories there I was already pretty tired but decided to stay for Mat Pilates taught by Lorri. For an hour, she twists and burns every muscle from your head to toes. She is an inspiration. If anyone can whip my posture into shape, it's her.
By this time, I was pretty hungry so I stopped by the spa to pick up my lunch. One of my favorites! The turkey and cranberry wrap sandwich with a huge bag of veggies and an applesauce. I savored every well deserved bite! And my applesauce came in handy later in the afternoon when I was craving a little sweetness.
For dinner we had delicious halibut with a raspberry sauce and green beans. I especially enjoyed my hearty whole wheat roll with seeds and grains. Bread! Who knew you could have bread? With Kim, Apryll and Lynette cooking your food, they know all the secrets of low-cal scrumptious dishes and treats.
And then....I had one giant, perfect, juicy chocolate dipped strawberry for dessert. Oh for the love of chocolate. And once again...everything was 1,200 calories. Amazing.
Day two...done! Feeling great!!
