I have to say I'm really happy with this week's weight loss since I was in Miami for the first part of the week. I tried to make healthy choices while I was there, and it paid off.

You may have noticed that I added my BMI to the stats for my weekly weigh-ins. Well, about 20 minutes into the presentation at Carnival, the supervisor told us that in order to pass our medical, we need to have a BMI of 30 or lower. Whomp whomp! My heart sank when I heard her say that. I had read that some cruise lines had that rule, but there were others that wanted it to be 35 or lower. I was hoping Carnival was part of the latter group, but unfortunately, they're not.

Before even going to the interview, I knew there was a possibility that my BMI would need to be below 30. So, what had I already gone to the Internet to calculate? That's current BMI and what I needed to weigh for it to be 30. FYI, that would be 209 pounds.

So, in knowing this, I didn't let myself be discouraged for too long. In fact, I'm using this as a new goal to help push me the next few weeks. I'm less than 15 pounds away. I want to be on a ship by no later than October. I CAN do this. I WILL do this.

LAST WEEK'S GOALS (Actually 2 weeks ago since I didn't post last week)

1) Log at least 20 miles

2)  Keep a food journal of EVERYTHING I eat this week
It lasted a day and a half...

3) Try a new healthy recipe

4) Lose 2 pounds


1) Try a new healthy recipe
My mom and I went to the grocery store today, so I am prepared for this one!

2) Lose at least 2 pounds
I really, really, really wanna get out of the 220s, which would mean I need to lose 3.7 pounds.

3) Log at least 20 miles
Walking for sure. Maybe bike riding as well?

4) Do this workout on Saturday, Monday, and Wednesday.

My sister is coming to town this weekend, which is always fun. Tomorrow we're going to the casino, and on Sunday, we're going out to eat with our dad and his girlfriend.

Since I didn't have a lot of pictures for this post, I will leave you with a pic of my sister, a gorilla, and three scantily clad women on a beach. If that's not random, I don't know what is!

Welcome to Miami!

  1. Congratulations on the job! I hope everything turns out like you hope it to be and it's just a totally awesome job : ] I also wish you luck on getting your bmi down--I know you can do it!

    And, have you heard of Nerd Fitness? I didn't stick with it very long, but I actually really liked it and it totally kicked my butt. It's all online and the videos are free, (and the owner/creator is cute!). Give it a try--it's similar to the gymless workout you posted. Or just stick with what you've been doing because that certainly seems to be working haha : ]
