I need a vaction- who doesn't? I spent a good part of my morning looking at cruises. We took one in 2001 and loved it! There's just one problem, and it really isn't a HUGE one, more my issue. I need to get myself back in cruise-worthy shape. It ridiculous that I'm not ready all the time, I work from home have a weight set and elliptical in the basement and live in a neigborhood with tons of walking paths. NO MORE EXCUSES!

Here's my plan:

  • Book a cruise for Feb/Mar 2010 this next week.
  • Start using healthy recipes on allrecipes.com DAILY!
  • Cut back on everything white, sugar, white bread, etc. Replace ingredients if necessary.
  • Work out at least 4 days a week and start walking daily, even just a 30 minute stroll with my little dogs.
  • Eat more fruit and vegies in 6 small meals a day 
  • ASK MY PALS ON ALLRECIPES.COM FOR HELP, LIKE RECIPES AND SUPPORT! (that's you guys!)

I think by Feb I will feel and possibly look much better than I do today by just following this simple plan. Anyone want to join me? I'm not expecting miracles, just want to feel better and if I look better, that's a bonus for the other people at the pool on the cruise! LOL!

I'll keep you all posted on the plan and my progress. Wish me luck!

I once read that if you take 3 10 minutes brisk walks everyday and don't change what you eat (as in don't eat more) you'll start losing weight within a week. It's easy peasy.

I love to cook, it is a stress reliever for me. I love the smell of cooking in the house, assuming it's all going well LOL! I love to cook for my family and I am trying to share my love of cooking with my daughter and son. My favorite summer meal is my hubby's BBQ burgers.I make salads and sides to compliment- it makes every weekend an adventure in the kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes, pasta, salads
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas Cookies and using seasonal fruits and vegies with old family recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Perfected potato salad and macaroni salad from old family recipes that needed re-doing!
My cooking tragedies
How about a half cooked turkey on Thanksgiving with the entire family here? OMG what a horrific day! I forgot the garlic in the Christmas Day lasagna once- how? I have no idea, but it was still ok...
