Emily’s trip to France

If you’ve been following along, I have been showing some videos of my friend Emily’s weight loss journey via V-blog! Yesterday she shared this video show of her recent trip to France.

As for me, I just returned from a one-week cruise vacation. We left from New Orleans and our ports of call included Costa Maya, Belize City (Belize), Roatan (Honduras), and Cozumel (Mexico). I had a great time and will share pictures with you soon!

Eating healthfully on a cruise ship is a real challenge because you cannot custom-order your food anywhere. They make food en masse so you either get what they make or not.  I kept a careful eye on my portion control and tried my best to eat healthfully when possible, even though I indulged in quite a few beers. The outcome: my weight remained the same over vacation. Woohoo! I was at 127.0 when I returned, which is the same weight as when I left.

Getting a workout in while on vacation was much easier than I would have though. I did a lot of hiking on a Mayan ruins tour, did a lot of swimming on a snorkeling tour. I got a few workouts in at the gym on the ship. Plus, we took the stairs on the ship as often as possible. Our room was on the 4th floor, and most of the pools/restaurants/hangout spots were on the 11th and 12th floors. If you take the stairs several times a day, that adds up. Consequently, exercise = complete!

Photos to come!

    I’m so envious of your cruise and good for you for not gaining. I can imagine the temptation was overwhelming. So glad you had a good time. :)
