It went well! I am not going to go into the food factor because - well - you don't want to know. Trust me. Let's just say it started with all you can eat red velvet cupcakes and went from there.... ;)
I had a great time - we were at sea for less than 2 days but I really felt like I got a break, and

I took my comparison photos as promised, so here they are. I discovered I had a few more 'before and afters' that I wasn't expecting, too.
I'm sure my next post will delve into this a little deeper but just to let you know where I've been at since then: not in a great place. You know I never lie on here. I'm not going to write and say I got back onto it and everything is going so great. Monday morning was ok - I got my backside into gear and started the day as I had intended: nutrition, training, sleep and water were my only goals.

I know what's wrong with this picture. I know what I need to do. But at the moment I don't see my way out. I'm sure I'll get there but for now I can't. I thought I could do this 2 day cruise then jump back on the wagon. I think I could have, but I haven't. I've stuffed it up. Just keeping it real and telling it like it is. I'll get there I'm sure...but for now? xo
I took the above selfie with my Dad in a car a couple of years ago and have always wanted to share it but wouldn't because I look so huge. I did another selfie on the weekend and like it better :)

Life jacket drill in 2011 vs 2013 - I remember bring nervous of the 2011 one that the jacket wouldn't fit around my neck and I'd be embarrassed. It was fine but this time I had no fear factor :)
