I just got back from my first, kid-free, grown up vacation....A cruise to the Bahamas. I understand why they limit the weight of your luggage know..It is so the ship doesn't sink by day 5 when all 3000 passengers have gained about 20 lbs each.
I'm not gonna lie..the food is amazing...I had Lobster Tacos, Escargot, Mexican Crusted Tuna, goad cheese Ravioli with Porcini mushrooms, eggs benedict with smoked salmon, scallop spring rolls, and the list goes on...Not too bad you are thinking? well...yeah..ok..except for the fact that the desserts are freakin amazing.. They even have ice cream for dessert..AFTER BREAKFAST.
And..on Thursday night..the chocoholics buffet..Chocolate EVERYTHING..fountains to dip fruit in, pies, mousse, cookies, macaroons, cakes, pies, pretty much everything.
It was a great experience and I wasn't as bad as I could have been. I ate my first hamburger in over 2 years..and it smelled better than it tasted. All in all a great time and the Bahamas are just beautiful. It's time to be serious..again.
Step 1-Doctor visit. Am I depressed? I really don't know. I've had a rough 2010. Vacation renewed my spirit, but I just dont' feel motivated..Work sucks. One of my kids moved to florida...I moved..Just alot of junk.
Step 2--Time to sever the relationship that isn't going the way I want it to go. Why waste more time on an indicisive man who I have decided is too much of a "Lone Wolf".
Step 3--Back to eating healthy again. I will cook dinner at home. Lots of veggies. Lower carbs.
Step 4-Back to the gym. I think I'll switch because there is never any place to park at the one I am at. Lately..people standing in line for ellipticals..staring..I love staring.
Step 5-New hobby..I am thinking Zumba. Sounds like fun and gets me out of the house.
The great part about being single and 40 is the joy of reinventing yourself..over and over again.
