I am sooooooo excited!!! I just booked a cruise with my friend Clarissa in May! I have never been on a cruise before and this has always been a bucket list item! We booked a 7 Day Western Caribbean cruise on Royal Caribbean cruise line. We will be going to Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel during our trip. I have already been to Roatan (my aunt has a vacation house there), but never to Belize or Cozumel.
Does anyone have any cruise tips for us? Want to come with us (friends only please, no internet strangers!)? Our trip cost $571 each with taxes and fees, which I think is reasonable. We still have to pay for excursions once we dock, but everything else (like food and on ship entertainment) is included. It works out to be about $82 per night, which is about the same if we were to pay for airfare/hotel/etc for a domestic trip.
Now on to the weight loss part of the trip. I have gained sooooooo much weight in the past year due to various things and I need to get back on track! As you can see on my countdown clock I created, I have 3 months (ish) left! I figure if I can hunker down and really focus for the next 3 months, I can lose some serious weight for the trip. My plan is to eat at home more (I’ve been doing better) and do a few cycles of the 21 Day Fix. 21 Day Fix focuses on portion control (see the below picture with the colorful boxes), 8-30 min workouts that focus on different areas (so you will only do the same workouts a few times), plus other stuff that I don't remember.
I have had the 21 Day Fix for a few weeks now, but I haven’t fully committed. I am a person who needs a major goal to strive for (like a marathon) before I kick my booty in gear. I have created a tracker for my workout area (another post to come) to have a visual reminder with. I will tell you that my tracker involves colorful stickers, a calendar, and gold/silver sharpies. :)
Anyone want to do the 21 Day Fix with me? My friend Krista can hook you up with it.
