Keeping on the path

Saturday, January 10, 2015

I am feeling good about some progress I made today. I am on my way to a Caribbean cruise that leaves from Houston, Texas. On the plane down to Houston I brought my own healthy food to eat in the airport and on the plane. Tonight, in our hotel they had a very delicious sounding Tex-Mex menu that seemed a bit high in fat and calories. Just the stuff I used to crave. I scanned the menu and selected soup (minus tortilla chips) along with some healthy chicken lettuce wraps with the sauce on the side.

The old me when on vacation would be on vacation from healthy choices. Now, I may select a treat to have once or twice. But now I am calling the shots and I am in control. One thing for sure it takes a lot of exercise to burn calories so if I do indulge it has to really be worth the calories.

I deliberately brought my smaller, more form-fitting wardrobe to help motivate me and I am excited to learn that there are Zumba classes aboard the Princess cruise I am taking. I am in !

    thank you for your blog. I also am 59 turning 60 in August. Born with heart disease and given second chance to have a wonderful life. Which I am. I also worried about being pre diabetic. I think this website is a gift from God. I have lost 45 pounds. My perfection is starting to wane and exercise is not consistent. BUT I am not quitting on anything. I find it inspiring to find someone in my age category, that has lost about the same amount of weight for health reasons. My mother is still sharp at 92, 93 in February with health issues and we are all trying to get along with her condition and her need for independence. She's a great inspiration. I love that your are making the choices that will guarantee that you stay non diabetic. It is such a miserable condition as I have friends who are. Diet is the answer. Keep On! I hope you will blog about your trip, how you liked it and considerations. We all love to hear about cruises...at least I do! It helps to know how it goes for others. emoticon

    I commented on the other post first... although I think that was one of those mysterious second posts that happen now and then.
