I'm Baaaaaack

Hello Blog World! I am back from my cruise. Let me just say: We are NOT the cruise'in family.

I will spare you most of the details, but we don't really drink, don't gamble (except with my chances on giveaways in blogworld), and go to bed early. Yes, party poopers we are - we claim it.... we OWN it! If you enjoy high priced drinks, like to gamble, and enjoy watching shows starting at 10pm - then a cruise could be just for you!!!

Also... I ran a total of 1 mile and walked 1 mile. AWFUL - I KNOW! I tried to run, but the boat rocked soooo much... especially on the first day. We were off the coast of NC when they got the horrible storms... and we got them too. I was so afraid I was going to hurt myself that after a mile, I stopped running on the treadmill. Oh, and the "track" on the boat for runners to enjoy - well, it was so small that you had to go around 15 times to equal a mile - seriously! And it gets better - it encircled the miniature golf holes. Just what I need to do - dodge golf balls while I am running a million laps to get my miles in.

I am a little disappointed, but I am home now and the running has already begun.

We got back on Sunday, but I have spent the last two days trying to catch up on you guys. Seriously... I had hundreds of thousands of blogs to read. I commented on some - but forgive me... there were just too many.

And the 40 days of Lent are over... and thus I have watched TV... logged back on to FB.... and got on my scale.

The Scale results: 144.3

So, I lost weight in 40 days... not as much as I had hoped, but 7 days without running and indulging in glorious food on the cruise... I am not upset! Pleased.... BLESSED!

I will leave you with the sunrise on Easter Sunday from the cruise! It was AMAZING. Praise God, Jesus LIVES!!!!



I will post more pics soon!

Welcome back!! I'm glad you posted this. I've always thought that cruises aren't for me...and you just proved why! :) But I hope you had some good times on the boat too and got to enjoy your vacation.

Welcome back, Jen! Sorry to hear that the cruise was somewhat of a disappointment. Hopefully you still enjoyed some sun and relaxation out there.

way to go on the weight loss...what are you next sets of challenges??

You should try the K-Love cruise. Lots of Christian bands and more family friendly events. I have never been, but if I ever go on a cruise that is what I want to go on. It's always in Jan.

Michelle said...

Doesn't sound like we would be "cruisers" either. Congrats on the weight loss!

Welcome home. Even if you are not cruise people - it was probably very relaxing and you got to spend some good time with the family.

I am looking forward to pictures . . . and you are probably looking forward to running again.

Welcome back! Glad you still had a good time even if you aren't "cruise people". I don't think I'd be much of one either with the way you put it :)
