My mom has been hinting at us going on a cruise and we had planned to go on one at the beginning of October that was cancelled :( I was all sad, but then, she sent me an email that said "please help me plan our excursions for OUR CRUISE October 13th!" OMG!!!! We are going to Cozumel, Belize, Mahogany Bay, and Costa Maya, Mexico!! Ummmm HECK YEAH!!!!!! So... in 251 days, I'm going to be on board a Carnival Cruise! I'm so freakin' excited, I cant even hold it in!!! :)

I saw on the website for the ship that the boat has a 24 hour awesome gym on board, all sorts of amazing (and physical!) excursions, and just awesomeness in general. I simply CANNOT wait to go snorkeling. Its one of my fave things in the world to do! I'm so excited!

I wonder how much I can lose by then? New travel attire? :D YAY!

I snagged a few pics from the website for you to see... :) These are some of our potential excursion sites! There are SO many options, its difficult to choose what we will do but no matter what it's going to be AWESOME!!! :)

(yes, that's a replica of the Black Pearl... my inner Pirates of the Caribbean fan-girl just went a little bananas... hehe)

In case you missed it... I am so freakin' excited!

Just wanted to share my happiness/excitement/squeal-mo
ment with my Spark Family! :D XO

    Thanks you are beautiful yourself.... Belize we didn't do much because we were too busy buying knock off purses. Not much to do in the Cayman's we did a island tour. Honduras gorgeous. Cozamel fun...went to Carlos and Charlie 's and drunk off our behinds. Are you leaving from Tampa cuz that's where im from. I plan to do this trip again.

    Awesome!!! If you're like me, there is nothing like the prospect of wearing a swimsuit in public for motivation, ha ha. Sounds like you're going to have a blast, and it's great that you have something so exciting to look forward to!

    I am so excited for you - you must blog if you can on how it is for the rest of us stuck on dry land!!!!! I know you will have a great time and remember - yes they have lots of buffet food on those things so find the healthy things in the mix - like fruit and vegies and stick with those.
    Have a great time!

    This looks WONDERFUL! I am so jealous. I went on a cruise to the Caribbean for my 25th wedding anniversary, and that has now been 16 years ago. I was morbidly obese, but young enough that I could still get around pretty well. However, I was not into revealing my body in even a pair of shorts, so there was a lot of activities in which I did NOT participate.

    So....now I want to cruise again and be a full active participant in ALL OF IT. Even the limited things I took part in 16 years ago were so much fun, I know if I could do it all, I would enjoy it that much more.

    Enjoy anticipating your trip for the next 251 days and even more important, ENJOY YOUR CRUISE!

    Congrats on your cruise. I hope you have a blast!

    That is totally awesome!!! Hurray!!!!
    You would go NOW it if it was today, right?
    So look at the extra weight loss as only the bonus.. the frosting (?) on the cake. You can do it!! 251 days? OMG.. you can hit Onederland if you really kick butt with like 2 lbs a week. Or you can do 50 more with 1 lb a week.. or even if you slip-slide, but don't disappear entirely, you can probably hit 25-30.

    Congratulations!! That is so exciting!! My parents have been on three cruises and loved each one of them. Mom and I keep talking about how we need to do a family cruise, but we just haven't seriously started planning it. One of these days though.

    You will love it - I have been on a couple and have visited Cozumel before. It certainly is different and relaxing. Ì`m going on another cruise at the end of March on Royal Carribean - will be stopping in Belize, Honduras and Cozumel. We are going out of Galveston,TX.

    Only downfalls - cruise is through my work so I have to attend meetings while i`m on board - BH gets to do whatever he wants which makes me a bit jealous.

    Also, being seen in a bathing suit by your co-workers - and worse yet - your bosses!

    Other one is that the food is amazing - but there are healthy choices. I just try to stay good all day and then don`t worry so much about dinner.

    I`m on my way to Cuba in less than two weeks for an all inclusive - guess I won`t be losing the weight before then - but you wtill have a lot of time ahead of you to achieve your goal!

    Don`t forget your sunscreen - with the breeze and the sun you certainly need one - right from the start! emoticon
