I can’t believe how much our society has changed within just the past week. With the pandemic of COVID-19, we really have to be safe and careful out there.
Here in California, we have been ordered to shelter in place until further notice. Even though I am not at a high risk age group, I want to protect those that are high risk. I have been practicing social distancing and not going out unless I have to. Even for work, I have been telecommuting.
I just want people to know that they should take this pandemic seriously. It can infect anyone. It doesn’t matter what age, race, gender, social status, etc. Although the younger people may develop just mild symptoms, it could be serious too. It affects people differently. However, it tends to be really serious when an older person does get infected. If you have parents or grandparents, I’m pretty sure you don’t want to infect them. So, please, practice social distancing and stay home as much as you can.
That is all I have to say about COVID-19 or the corona virus right now. I don’t want to speak too much as people have their own opinions about it.
In other news, my fiance and I came back from Cabo this past Monday. Yes, I said fiance. He proposed to me in Cabo! We’re so happy! I’ll talk more about the proposal later in a different post but I want to talk about what we did in Cabo.
So, the main reason we went to Cabo was to attend a friend’s destination wedding. We decided to extend it and make it a vacation. Please note, this was planned a year in advance so we did not know COVID-19 would happen.
We stayed at a different resort than where the wedding was and thank goodness we did. Our resort was so quiet and not crowded. It was a relaxing vacation. We drank lots of margaritas and piña coladas. We chilled at the pool. The food was delicious too! We didn’t do any excursions because we just wanted to relax. The wedding resort, on the other hand, was basically a party resort with tons of college students. I am so happy we did not stay there. It was so crowded, their drinks were terrible, and the food was not good at all. The wedding was really nice and the ceremony was on the beach though. It was beautiful!
Now, let’s talk about the drinks and food at the resort. The drinks were so good and they do make it strong. I enjoyed all the margaritas I ordered. The food was delicious too. We did not follow a plant-based diet during vacation. We ate delicious fish tacos, chips and guacamole, shrimp cocktail, shrimp ceviche, shrimp tacos, lamb burger, filet mignon, sushi, ravioli, spaghetti, everything! The only not so good item was the sushi. However, everything else for the food was delicious. They made everything look fancy and they were small portions. However, it was okay since the food was delicious and we wanted to try a lot of things on the menu.
At the end, when we got home, we decided to that we like the plant-based diet. We will eat seafood every once in a while but plant-based diet is what feels best for us. I finally got to 135 lbs, a number I haven’t seen in 10 months. It went back up a little due to the vacation but it’s slowly going down again.
So, that’s it for now. How are you guys doing?
