If we could sum up Grand Cayman in one word: paradise. We know, so cliché, but it truly is the most beautiful place. If anyone is thinking about a place to vacation, we can guarantee this post will convince you that GC is the perfect place (not that you’ll need it–the pictures will speak for themselves)!
We have been coming here for the past 8 years, and every year, we somehow grow to love it even more. The people on the island are honestly the sweetest people ever! We have never had a bad meal (because who doesn’t love fresh seafood?!), and the surroundings, well they speak for themselves!
We have always stayed on the 7 mile beach, which is absolutely gorgeous. You know those post cards or generic screen savers you get with your computer–well, a place like that picture actually exists–it’s GC! We have met people here that have said they have been to a TON of beaches all over the world, and this is the best one they have been to. That’s all we needed to hear!
It’s hard enough making healthy choices when you’re in the comfort of your home and most likely, free of temptations! Then, you add going out with friends or family to your favorite restaurant, and it’s 10 times harder! We will admit we used to struggle big time when it came to eating out! Either we were scared to pick anything that didn’t only involve lettuce, or once we got to the restaurant, we would go town and then go home upset about the damage we had done.
Before, we get into some quick tips on staying on track. We are not in any way condoning having something you enjoy that we all know is far from healthy when dining out! We are FIRM believers in moderation! If you never allow yourself to have something you enjoy eating, you will break one day. You may have a long period of time where you “stick” to your so called “diet,” but one day, you will scream out some choice words (or, say them to yourself), and decide that you can’t deprive yourself anymore! Guess what? That would be 100% normal to do!
If you’re like us, then you LOVE bright shoes! We admit we actually enjoy looking like human highlighters 🙂 Add that to working out and basically living in our workout gear, and you have super dirty tennis shoes! Ew!
We have used our bestie, Google, to find ways to clean these suckers, but haven’t really found a great method that gets them back to their bright selves. THEN, we came up with this method, and it works great!
