I am flying to SanDiego in the morning. I have been thinking about this trip for weeks now and what goals I could set for myself, here is what I came up with.
ØTake walking tours when possible – I found walking tours for the towns we are visiting. San Diego, Acapulco, Manzanillo, Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa
ØUse the stairs instead of the elevator – our cabin is on the 6th floor
ØSwim 4 days or more - weather permitting, maybe there is an indoor pool
ØNo soda, Drink water – water bottle packed, have herb tea with dinner, the tea us free
ØNo white food at the evening meal (rice, bread, potatoes, pasta) Dr. recommended anyway
ØTake advantage of all the fruits and vegetables – eat more!
ØPay attention to mindless eating – don’t do it!
ØPay attention to when I am full and stop eating. – Don’t need to clean my plate
ØJournal –evaluate how I did each day following plan and use the point challenge to measure my success. I usually journal my vacations, on the laptop, share with the family and friends (internet access will be very limited this trip).
ØBe more active! – I really love just sitting on the balcony with a good book and watch the world float by but I will try to be more active every day. There are a dozen people on this cruise that we know.
ØWalk laps – keep track of step/miles or time. Usually on a cruise ship there is one floor that you can walk around the entire ship. It is more interesting that walking laps on the track. I have never been on a Carnival ship before so I am not sure what’s there.
ØUse sun block every day.
Now that I took back over this, I see that it’s all about making healthy choices. By making my plan public, I will be more accountable. I also am taking a printed copy of my plan with me.
