Getting Excited!

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Well the cruise is only 3 more sleeps away! I've been out buying new summer clothes which is always fun since I've dropped 4-5 sizes since my 50 pound weight loss! Somehow during the winter I made do with wearing oversized clothes perhaps not believing that I would keep the weight off...HA! Now this would never do on a cruise thus the purchasing frenzy all at once. Can't wait to model all the new clothes. I've even bought dresses and I can't remember the last time I actually wore one...yes there are legs that look pretty good and fit if I say so myself...but then I'm biased! Well bon voyage!


A Much More Active Day

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

Was up bright and early today after a fitful sleep to attend my Zumba class. 45 minutes of at times high impact Zumba got my heart going and my sweat glands working! Home for a quick lunch then walked to my pedicure appt and back, 2 hours in total. This was my first pedicure but certainly won't be my last! A nutritious dinner followed by a movie and getting ready for my first dragon boat paddling session of the season Wed morning. I'm getting psyched!


Lazy Few Days

Monday, April 30, 2012

There was a death in the family last week and my husband and I attended the wake on Sunday and funeral today. We spent a long time with his family each day including the reception after the service. I find these quite events quite draining and found that I couldn't muster the energy when I got home to exercise. At least today I forced myself to grocery shop and got a light walk out of it but that's all I could motivate myself to do. Well some days are just like that and I can't beat myself up about what's now in the past. Tuesday mornings I've been going to a Zumba class and I'm really looking forward to it! I've also got an appointment in the afternoon and plan to walk home from it which will most likely take me an hour or so. So I'm getting back in the saddle and I'm sure it will energize me.

    Sorry for the loss of your family member. Don't feel bad about not feeling like doing anything. Sometimes we just need to take a break and regroup. I do it (too) often! emoticon
You need to take care of yourself, and then continue the journey.

Cruise with the Euchre Ladies One Week Away!

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Next Sunday morning I'll be jetting off to Miami to board our cruise ship with my 5 euchre lady friends! The longest I've been away with them is over a weekend so hopefully we're all still friends at the end of the week - lol!

On past cruises I've been able to keep my weight gain to about 5 lbs and hopefully I'll be successful again this time around. I think the activity on the excursions definitely helped and I tried to walk the track as many days as possible.

What I didn't have at the time of my last cruise in March '11 was SP and I have confidence that once I return I'll get right back at it in terms of tracking my food and exercise. It's worked for me over the last 9 mos particularly when I've been away on vacation or at holiday times like Xmas & Easter when I've put on weight. I've always managed to drop the added lbs within the next 7-10 days which is very reassuring to me!

    Enjoy your cruise!

You can track your food on the cruise in a small notebook or journal, so you have an immediate way to hold yourself accountable tor what you eat, even if you don't have calorie counts. You can also use the journal to keep notes on cool stuff that happens on vacation, which is a fun souvenir to bring home.

Final Curling Bonspiel

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Well it seems like we've been curling all week....wait a minute we have curled every night except for Monday! After tonight's late game we only have one game left Saturday morning then a break before our wrap up dinner and dance that evening. What a great way to end the season, lots of new teams to meet then dance your feet off. Thank goodness dragon boating is starting May 1...something to look forward to.

    Curling? Dragon boating? Excuse me, but how cool are you? Very much so, I believe.
