I am finally back from my three week cruise/vacation. Hawaii was breathtaking of course, the two week cruise was the perfect getaway. No computers, no cells, no tension. I enjoyed a much needed exodus from life, we had eight "sea days" and I either walked on the track or did the elliptical in the gym during these days. Port days in Hawaii were very physical with much walking and even hiking in Maui to a beautiful hidden waterfall.
NOTE: The best part? I gained only 3 pounds! 3 pounds after a 2wk cruise of dining and drinking along with another week of beaches and restaurant food! I already lost 2 of those pounds since being home. Hopefully I will be back to where my pre-trip weight within the next couple days.
