So I went on my cruise and had a wonderful time. Gained 4 lbs and partied my butt off!! Pretty happy that I didn't feel like I deprived myself of food I wanted to try, or drinks up on the Lido with friends. My husband even went to the gym and ran the track but honestly, the last thing I wanted to do was feel like I was exercising, so I made up for it by swimming, snorkeling, walking the streets of Jamaica, even hiking a waterfall! (Dunn's River Falls if you ever go!) I felt great about getting on the ship having met my personal goal of being under 200lbs. When we got back I kinda stopped recording my meals and counting calories and in the last 3 months I've only lost 8 lbs. So I'm back, and ready to account for my actions and get back on track. Oh, and the last month I had to battle the pain from my ruptured disc so I couldn't exercise...at all. Heck, I couldn't even wash my hands without leaning on the sink! It was bad this time. I'm finally back on my feet and ready to get in a regular routine. I don't know where you all live but our winter in MD was horrible! We even got snow a week ago!! I'm soooo done with winter and can't wait to get outside. Its so pretty out now I have all the windows open and I'm starting my spring cleaning!
I'm glad that I didn't leave spark people as long this time as I have in the past because I know how much it has helped me and how much support I've gotten from all of you. I hope each one of you have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to reconnecting soon!!
