I am getting married in May, and we were thinking of taking a cruise to Alaska for a special trip, as a honeymoon. I would like to know other people's experiences on cruises, and suggestions for websites. Here are my pros and cons:
Pro: it is the only way to see Alaska
Con: I don't like boats, I don't like feeling trapped on a boat, I don't like the up and down of boats!!! Also, I envision a cruise as possibly being trapped with poor food, a tiny cabin, and irritating people.
I wonder if I could overcome all of this?

Wow, its Friday, already. (see Monday blog) I have been wracking (racking??) my brain trying to figure out one lifestyle change that would drop weight without having to count calories, even though I actually have fun with the tracker and I also use it to make sure I am getting enough calcium.
Ate strangely yesterday; went to a movie, and basically had popcorn and coke for dinner!!! I never ever drink any soft drinks, so I certainly feel okay about that part of it. I probably have not had a coke in two months.
I think if a person just stopped eating in restaurants altogether, he or she would lose weight and save money at the same time. That would be a huge lifestyle change. A hard one.

I have been trying to make these reusable snack bags. My daughter paid a rather large amount of money for a few, so she asked me to make them, because they look so easy. The purpose is to save on all those baggies you use for food, especially with kids.
You use cute material, food grade plastic, and some velcro. I have a model to copy from.
First of all, they were not so easy. I have not sewed in a long time, and my brain is not functionally optimally these days. The first ones I made looked like they were made by the five year olds they were intended for. Crooked seams, out of proportion velcro, the food grade plastic not adhering......
So, I went online and found several actual patterns for making them. When I tried to print out the pattern, it would only print the picture and not the text. After wasting five pages of color ink and paper, I tried to figure out the cause, I spent an hour researching adobe downloader, googling "text won't print"---- Well, it turned out I was out of black ink. Now how stupid is that?
I may just buy more of them for her!!!

Really, it is sort of funny; every Monday, I feel like I have a fresh start, but then things seem to go downhill!!!

For some reason, the trivia questions got really hard, and I was not in the mood to try to look up the answers on the internet, just took wild guesses, and now am back down to my 69%. Eggs do not have vitamin C. I should have known that, if I had given the question some thought. My goodness, a five year old knows that Vitamin C goes with the orange juice questionn.
Even though Spark says only weigh once a week, I think for me it is better to weigh every day. First of it, it makes it easier to establish as a habit. Secondly, it makes it easier not to lie to myself and be dismayed when I have "gained" one pound or elated when I have "lost" one pound. There is a real three pound range that varies. I will know I have lost weight when that range goes down day after day.
