This past week I went on a Mexican Riviera Cruise for eight days. I had a goal set to reach before I left, and I reached it. I was so excited. In fact, I was so excited that I took all my weight loss tools with me on the cruise and was determined to not be tempted by all the available, scrumptious food on a cruise. I did so well the first two and a half days. But it can be so difficult to figure out points when I’m not sure how they prepare the food. So I put my point books away and enjoyed the food. However, I did visit the on-board gym faithfully.
How did I do? I don’t know. I’m sitting here with a swollen left ankle (water retention from traveling) and feeling like I will probably have to work at getting back to where I was, and then continue on from there. But I had fun, and I can begin again in the morning. Life is forgiving, and so must I be. It will feel good to get back to eating healthy food and less rich food.
