For two months I've been trying to whip this old body into shape
so that when we went on the cruise, I'd look good. Unfortunately, the pounds didn't come off like I hoped they would, but I am down by 5 inches, and I'll take that. I'm going and I will totally enjoy every aspect of the trip. We, my hubby and both my kids and their spouses, are flying to Puerto Rico to visit my brother. Then the 8 of us will hop on a cruise ship for 7 days/nights and sail the Southern Caribbean.
We are leaving behind three darling little boys with their other grandparents - and that can give one pause and cause some fear. I'd like those little boys to be raised by the parents God blessed them with, and we are taking those parents with us. We have claimed Joshua 1:9 as our verse for this trip: "Have I not commanded you, be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened or dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you are." We realize all our times are in His hands, and we'll trust Him.
I intend to keep track of my food while I'm gone. I have worked too hard to gain it all back! I'll try and get in exercise every day too.
for a few weeks.
