What a week it has been. I just came back from an 8 day cruise. Talk about food!!! Ok, so I didn't exactly follow a healthy eating life style but I know I could have been a lot worse. For breakfast I managed to stay away from the pastries and had egg white omlette and fruit. Lunch -- not so bad either at the beginning of the cruise. I made sure I had a salad and usually picked a fish entree (without a lot of sauce). The desert bar was too hard to resist towards the latter part of the trip. For dinner I picked the entrees with the heart next to them and left part of it. Oh but those desserts were too hard to resist and I didn't. I did make it to the onboad ship or took some power walks on the walking path. I figure the windy side of the deck was like walling uphill. Unfortunately, among all this bliss there was a mess back at my house. My water heater burst and dumped gallons and gallons of water all over. My son was home manning the deluge but what a mess I came home to. Walls have been ripped out (about 2 feet from the floor), there are only cement floors where there was carpeting, my kitchen appliances are in the family room and there is so much more. On the bright side, the damage is covered by insurance (less my deductible) and everything can be reaired or replaced. Hopefully this can be done quickly because I have to be back at work next week. Right now I am waiting for the contractor and a new hot water heater -- I hate cold showers.
