Cruise Update & Valentines Day

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Got the official email that the cruise has been canceled. Three weeks for the refund to be processed (it was paid in full). So this weekend my brother and I will be contacting Carnival to book one in May. Same ship because it's easier to leave out of Galveston, TX for us.

I think we may be doing a 5 day that leaves on a Saturday this time. The original was 4 days, leaving on Thursday. Hopefully they will have the ship fixed and updated by then, it's 3 months away. Carnival has been really good about this situation and any other past issues with their line, so I'm sure they will be up and running before we are to leave.

On the Valentines front - a co-worker just had to make brownies and buy mini-cupcakes for some party her daughter's class was having. And instead of sending all of it with her, she brought it up here. Her reasoning "if it's at home, I'll eat it". No kidding, who wouldn't. But why bring it here when we have several people in a weight loss contest (no she isn't in it but on a diet)?

I have walked past it all several times today and have only looked at it once. Not even tempted. emoticon Just proves that the longer you go without something, the less it will pull you in. It's called addiction and I am a carb addict, therefore bread and sweets are my downfall. If we are at a restaurant and someone orders dessert, I have enough control to accept one or two small bites and then stop. But sitting on a table in the main area of the office, where I have to walk by it constantly.... NO, I can't even take a nibble.

Know your triggers and then learn to control or avoid them. It is possible.

Have a great Thursday, Valentines day or Happy Singles day..... whatever is your choosing.

    I hear you. If I have one bite, then it causes me to crave the food. Be strong!
