Mamavation Wednesday from Stacie

I am thinking that perhaps I need a serenity prayer. Not the usual one though. More like a little strength to not over-indulge on the cruise this weekend. Do they have one of those?

Every time I mention the Disney cruise I am going on, most people say “Oh you will love the food” or “Wait until you see all of the food.”

It’s making me nervous. Why isn’t anyone saying “Wait until you see that fitness center” or “You will be surprised at how great a late night walk feels.” Those are the kind of things I want to hear. Those are the kind of things I need to hear.

I really have checked out the fitness facilities online and looked at the track on one of the decks. I looked at all of the activities available and realized that this is an amazing opportunity. This should be really fun. I am really looking forward to it.

Everyone in my family is a little sick right now so I am feeling a little guilt about even getting away for a few days. But I am a little sick too so I figure that it all evens out. I have almost lost my voice.

I think that it is that change in the weather thing we have going on here in Georgia. It is getting a little colder. I may have to find my winter jacket. Well, actually it is more like a heavy sweater. I don’t really own a winter jacket.

I went to an event last night and have another event tonight. As usual, I have overscheduled the heck out of myself. So I am and always will be running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

Time to get a little sleep.

    You're going to have a blast! And you can totally get your workouts in on cruise! Take advantage of the and their workout equipment! My advice…. get it over with FIRST thing in the morning so its done. Enjoy yourself!

  2. Doood, you should totally do a whyrrl story on the healthy aspect of the Disney cruise. I'm sure they would LOVE it! Concentrate on what is important to you right now. You are doing to get something very different out of the Disney experience than everyone else…and that is a good thing. Everyone else will be tweeting and talking about the food, but you can be tweeting about how Disney supported your healthy goals. (I'm sure they aren't going to get that form alot of bloggers.) Trust me…this is a good thing. And healthiness is catchy. If you talk about what you are doing, some other people will catch on. They won't indulge as much, etc. They might check out the gym and exercise with you, who knows. This will be a hard weekend, but YOU CAN DO IT!! You are the Mamavation Mom and EVERYONE wants to see you succeed.

  3. I agree with leah. I have to say there is always fruit and healthy options on the few ships that I have been on. If there is something you feel you shouldnt than dont. Most importantly remember to have FUN!!! sounds like there is a lot of oppertunity for you to get moving. I know you will do fantastic on it. ENJOY!

  4. I really admire your committment to eating healthy and exercise. For most people, going on a cruise would mean to put it all on hold til they return! Then complain that they have lost progress! You are great! Keep up the good work. I am inspired.

    I have recently joined the gym but have yet to really get there. My work schedule is extremely inconsistent. I often have to work a double shift. 7:00am to 10:30pm. No way will I go to the gym after a day like that.

    I have come to the conclusion, the best time for me to go would be to get up at 4:30am to be there by 5:00am. Not really sure how to work it out yet. Need to develop a routine. THat first requires getting into the gym and getting motivated.

    Keep up the good work. It may take some sacrifices while on the cruise, but you will be proud of yourself when you get home and realize you are still on track…or may have, in fact, lost some more!….:) Thumbs up!

    Positive thoughts!

  5. The food is awesome…BUT they also ahve awesome food…good for you food, plus all the extra activity…you will kick it no doubt!

  6. Get Real Girl says:

    you are going to have so much fun. Relax and enjoy yourself. Enjoy exercising in beautiful scenery.
