Week 20 - Cruise Strategy and beyond

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

DONíT PANIC emoticon. Panic about what you ask emoticon. Well, panicking about not having enough to eat on the cruise. WHAT are you kidding me!!! Isnít the joke that you can eat on the cruise 24/7 emoticon. Yes it is. The issue for me is that this year on the cruise Iím going to avoid my intolerant foods. So that means no Gluten, Peanuts, Green Beans, Eggs, Dairy and Onions. I know that I will be able to eat something but my concern is will it be enough so that Iím not hungry all day long emoticon.

Iíve already researched and found some great blogs with people who have had at least a gluten allergy and was able to talk to the food crew and were able to modify the menu and didnít get sick at all. Iím planning on doing the same soon after boarding. I guess I feel guilty that most of our meals will probably have to be at the sit down restaurant and not the buffet. DH said he was cool with that plus if you want to order more than one entrťe you still can. Itís essentially all you can eat still.

I plan on hitting the gym almost everyday and I will do my best eating with the food choices that I have and will just deal with the results when I come back. Last year, I gained about 8-10lbs and it was all gone in about 1-2 weeks so I'm not going to stress.

I know that I will be fine but I just have to convince myself that I will be OK. So what if Iím a little hungry or a lot hungry between meals. Heck, Iím dealing with that now emoticon and that brings me to my next point.

I'm having all of these AH-Ha moments lately. JUNE I'm going to focus on Nutrition emoticon. I think I'm focusing on the wrong thing. Instead of focusing on stopping the mindless snacking, I need to focus on eating more filling foods at meal time. If I do that, then the mindless snacking should take care of it's self because I won't be hungry. Duh emoticon. When I get back from the cruise I'm going to make several appointments with my dietician to help me figure out how to modify my eating plan to help me find foods that help me feel full instead of still being hungry after eating my meals.

I do a fantastic job with fitness so I need to just maintain what I'm doing there and nail down this whole eating thing. Once I do that, I can probably cut back on the fitness. I can only imagine how much I would be gaining if I wasn't killing myself at the gym. Kinda sad though.

    emoticon Have a great time. Enjoy! Don't stress too much about the food. Stress on a cruise seems ironic.

  You will be surprised how many options there are on cruises..I was lucky enough on my last cruise that my dinner waiter would tell me where she was working during the day (buffett and specialty restaurants around the shp) and she would make sure I got food to meet my dietary needs.

You have a great plan and support from your husband!
