Vanessa's October Journal
61
Mon, 10-03-2011 - 4:47pm

Okay - I'm going to be wild and crazy this month and not make ANY goals! Yep - you read right - I'm not making one single solitary goal at the beginning of this month because I've looked at my last 2 months starting goals and they've been pretty much the same each month and I haven't even attempted most of them so how bout this - I'm just going to journal what I actually do and take it from there.

The week on the cruise was fantastic! My problem wasn't so much the 24 hour food supply though - my problem was that it was my birthday week so there was just alcohol all over the place! Rounds of drinks here and there! The 1st day on the boat

Vanessa, I'm so glad you had a good time on the cruise!! So would you do another one? Was it totally relaxing?

Too bad about Devon being up all night. That sure doesn't help. I like the idea about not setting goals and just journalling progress. That might be something I should look at!

Anyways, here's to a great October!

My dad's side of the family actually has their reunion each year on cruises out of Miami and I've never been out of fear of getting seasick

Well it sounds great! I have a friend who is considering a cruise for their honeymoon. Did you have to pay for your meals extra? I know I'm grilling you LOL but I'm curious, and he is too. So I figured I'd ask. :-)

Nope - all meals are included with the cruise - even room service if you order it. The only thing you have to pay for is your alcohol which in our case was probably close to the cost of another ticket! lol Your room key is also your "credit card" and you can preload a certain amount onto the card or you can just choose ti have it all closed out to your predetermined credit card at then end of the trip which is what we did. We set aside money in advance for our drinking money since it was coming out of our checking account

Ladies - once you're kids are getting into their teenage years you will get LOADS of uninterrupted sleep - honestly Matt could sleep the day away if I let him! LOL

Vanessa, I'll pass along that info to my friend - sounds like a blast!

And here's to climbing back on the wagon this month!

Well ladies - it's been a rough week. I did walk on the treadmill Tues & Thurs during lunch, packed my food for work 3 of the 5 days and got in decent water. Now we're coming up on a 3 day weekend so I really gotta pull it together because the thighs on my jeans today are feeling a little snug I say after I just ate a bacon macaroni & cheese for lunch...

Lol Vanessa, I'm in the same boat here. I don't know what happened this week. It was a total gong show in terms of eating.

Next week is a brand new week! Let's use that Monday for exercise and all get good workouts in!
