Just got back from Vacation. Took a 7 day cruise out of Boston (my home town) to Bermuda. Prices were cheap, so we took advantage of that. As you can see, Bermuda is a very pretty place. Ultra blue water, friendly people, etc. Here’s a few pics from the trip, with more on my photobucket album if interested.
Staying nutrition and fitness oriented, I have heard many claim how difficult it is to eat well on cruises and such. That is a BS excuse honestly. I have had no problems eating well and staying active on cruises. It’s easy to eat well on a cruise, but as usual, you have to make choices. For example, a typical days eating on this cruise was:
Breakfast was an Egg white and vege omelette with a little cheese and oatmeal and coffee
lunch was usually some baked chicken, salad, and maybe a cookie!
mid day I would have a snack in the room, which for me was a protein drink using fresh fruit I took back to my room from the lunch buffet.
Dinner was usually fish of some kind, salad, either a small desert or a few glasses of wine.
I walked every day around the ship (4 laps was 1.5 miles) and hit the gym and or the pool a few times.
If anything, I lost a few lbs! It’s not rocket science. It’s about the usual issues: making the right choices even when stuff you know you should not eat is right under your nose. Sure, I few nights I ate some “junk” ’cause I was on vacation, but I didn’t use that as an excuse as a free ride to eat like crap for 7 days either.
If I can do it, so can you!
