June 29, 2021 - Just enjoyed our 1st cruise since Oct, 2019 and only the 2nd since October 2018. We have 5 or 6 booked for June 2021 thru August 2022. That was our norm. This cruise was on the American Duchess from Louisville, KY to Nashville/Clarksville, TN. Only 8 days of good food, exploration, wonderful people and great entertainment. I think all cabins were occupied but only half the usual staff was working. Self-serve venues were staffed or closed. Next week, hugs will be permitted. Some of us chose to adapt the rules. This is the last week of mandatory masking. Since masks are not required while eating or drinking, a lot of people always had a beverage or snack in hand.

So many things remind me of fun we've had in our travels. Getting lost can be a great adventure if we are creative about communicating when we don't know the language.

Apr. 10, 2021 Update. When I started this journey, I wanted to get under 200 from almost 210. Mindful eating, and I made it.
Revised my goal to 195, well, if I can do that, I'll go for 189.
I was getting excited and when I reached 190, I decided I could get to 185. Wow. I did it. According to one doctor, That is my optimum weight.
Today I am at 184.7. Last week it was 184.5. For 3 consecutive days I had gains.
My hubby (His Honor - because he is bossy) was under 273 yesterday. Today he is over 274. That is progress since he started me on this journey. He was almost 280. No need to mention his habitual behavior and moans about pain. Proper exercise and actual movement would help him.
At one time, there was only a 10-20 pound difference in our weights. Last year he was about 70 pounds heavier. Now it is 90 pounds. He has been to so many classes directed at better health but considers low-nutrition foods essential.

    Back in the 60's, our church youth group traveled to St. Louis and we stopped at a coffee shop. Remember, these were the days when the Hippies were a new breed. I'll never forget one of the tongue-in-cheek names for the dessert of a brownie with ice cream. Integration!
    I hope you get your ice cream tonight. emoticon
