Cruisi'n for a Lose'n

Thursday, August 15, 2013

My husband surprised me with a cruise to the western carribean this November for our 6 year Anniversary! That gives me almost 90 days to do a mini- transformation for myself so I can feel energetic and better in some tropical clothes. So my new goal is a minor 10 lbs a month. That's about 30 lbs down before I go. I think for me it will make a world of difference...especially if we go on a specific excursion I want to. We will be in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and there's a waterfall hike we really want to do. Right now I wouldn't be able to keep up...between my weight on my bones and sciatica I'd be in so much pain. I can tell a difference with just the 10 lbs I've lost so far that another 30 will make a huge difference. Unlike so many others...the food on the cruise is not an issue for me. I LOVE all the fruits and salad bars they have and were so active walking and swimming on board that the last cruise we took this past Jan, I didn't gain anything! I didn't limit myself but I don't remember ever over eating...matter of fact I really didn't have a huge appetite at all. Hopefully I'll stay on track and discipline myself this time also.
This past week hasn't been bad but I haven't lost anything either. I've been well under my limits but I haven't been exercising. I still drink nothing but lemon water...I've had one coffee in 4 weeks! I don't crave caffeine anymore and I can't get enough water. Sweet tea was my downfall but ironically I haven't even wanted that...not even at restaurants! Saves us at least $2 every time though by just ordering water! ;) (with extra lemon!)
Do you think I'm retaining water? I was sure I would have lost another pound or two by now.
My sodium intake is moderate...not over the top...but I just think I havent lost because I've been lazy.

Well here's to another week! Thanks to all my friends and thanks for reading!

    UPDATE: Lost 4 more lbs since this blog. Trying to keep my energy up but having a hard time. I feel lighter though and I'm going to concentrate on moving..moving..moving. If I could I'd stay in bed all day. :(
