It Doesn't Happen Overnight....

After a nice week off, I am back at it!  My husband and I went on a cruise, and I have to admit I was a little nervous, because I realized that food was going to be available to us 24/7.   I was pleasantly surprised that they made it easy to make healthy choices.  They had many grilled options, egg beaters, sugar free products, and lots of fruit!  

I had planned on visiting the gym while cruising, but the movement at the top of the ship and I didn't get along.  To avoid being doped up on Dramamine, I avoided the gym.  Instead, I took the stairs when I could and did lots of walking while site seeing.

Seasickness will help you not eat too much.  There was a small front that moved through the first night and the 50 mph wind rocked the boat pretty good.  Nevertheless, I didn't do much eating until the second day.    I was proud that I made healthy choices during the cruise and only allowed myself one meal to eat whatever I wanted.  I splurged the most on the frozen yogurt machine.  Every other day they had strawberry and chocolate.  It tasted like cherry cordial when swirled.  It was so yummy!

As you can see, my steps were fair, but the total floors climbed was my best ever.

I love the quote at the top.....I have to remind myself constantly that my weight didn't go on over night and will not fall off overnight.  We can do this!!

  1. I'm glad you had a great cruise and didnt really go backward on your healthy living quest.

    I hope you are posting pictures of your cruise!

  2. Great job!!! I went on my cruise in February and I made sure I did as much activity as I could. You had a plan stayed on course! You are right, it's about what we do every single day to live our healthy lives and you are doing GREAT!

  3. I'm losing at a very slow pace, and I don't mind it. I suppose I could try to buckle down and get the weight off faster, I've done that before, but this feels right to me, and I think it's going to produce a more lasting result! Nothing wrong with being patient!

  4. I love that quote and I totally agree. I wish it could happen quickly, but the reality is that it took time to put the weight on and it will take time to take it off.


I love to hear from all of you! Thank you for taking the time to comment!
