Greetings from JFK Airport!

Goodbye cold New York and HELLO! Sunny beautiful Puerto Rico!!
I am leaving today for a seven day Caribbean cruise and I could not be more excited and nervous.

Katy mentioned that the average America gains 6lbs on a cruise. That is BANANAS! However I will not be the average American I plan on combating this by:

1. Exercising I packed my faithful sneakers and plenty of workout clothes. There is a gym and a running track on the boat. I have been complaining about how it is too cold to run outside in NY but now I'll be able to run again! Also I'll be swimming!! I love to swim especially on beautiful sandy beaches.

2. I am currently reading "Believe It, Be It: How Being on the Biggest Loser Won me back my life" by Ali Vincent. She was the first female biggest loser and an overall rockstar. I am really enjoying the book and it is a great way to keep me motivated.

3. My computer. While I am probably not going to be blogging for the week. I will continue to keep my food journal.

This brings me to my goals for the week:
Food Goal: Realistically I will eat a bit more than usual this week but I'm okay with that because I lost 4lbs this week rather than my goal of 2lbs. So I just want to come out of this week breaking even. I will control the food not by tracking calories or points but just being mindful and writing down everything I eat.

Exercise Goal: Stay active! I want to use the gym, exercise, swim but I am going to take the stairs the entire week never the elevator.

Personal Goal: I am going to go on a hiking excursion in the rainforest and swim with sea turtles!!! Pictures to follow.

  1. Yay! Good for you. Having a plan and goals helps me stay on track. Good luck and have fun! Bring back some sunshine for us.

    Thanks for mentioning the book. I was just looking for the title of it on Google. I'm glad you're enjoying it. I was wondering if it would be any good.
