I just returned from a cruise with my husband and it was lots of fun! I ate way too much, but tried to have balance by working out twice a day. I did a half hour of weight training and cardio in themorning, then in the late afternoon, I would do 30 more minutes of cardio. The ship (Princess) had a great workout room and that made it fun to do machines I don't have at home. All in all, I gained 4 1/2 pounds. Not bad really. Now it's down to business to get the weight back where it was before I left.
My trainer gave me a eating plan that I'm trying that actually has me eating more calories than I'm used to, more protein than I'm used to and no fruit, coffee or dairy or alcohol. It's very doable for me because I can make alot of the food and pre-pack and weight them so I just have to grab a bag. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
Let me stress, this is not a 'diet'. I'm not eating only one kind of food, not eating a crazy reduced calorie count, or only beet juice. It's the kid of food I normally eat, just at determined times and weights. I'm using my scale to give this option its best chance at success!
