  1. I am going to try a different tack this year. I have always tried to do all or nothing -- eating right, exercising, blah, blah, blah. That would get boring after about a week. My New Year's resolution this year is to do 30 minutes of some type of movement every day. This can be walking around the track at the dog park, jogging, elliptical trainer, whatever I feel like doing that day! I guess shopping could even count if I can skip the choc chip cookie afterwards! Then if I can keep this up for a month or so, I will find ONE area in my diet that I need to change. Like foregoing chicken mcnuggets at mcdonalds or something like that (eat them all the time) and opting for a salad. Then after a month or so of that I will find another change to make. I'm hoping that if I make the lifestyle change a gradual one, it won't be so devastating to me as in the past and I won't start feeling deprived of all the things I love!
  2. I intend to write one after every cruise. I actually get it written and sent off about half the time. I always mention the good and the bad in every letter. I usually get a very personalized response back from Carnival (the only line I have sailed with). Occasionally I get a "45-day letter" for a gift on my next cruise. Didn't get one this last time. I think they are tightening their belts at Carnival and not giving them out anymore! I know, I shouldn't write the letter just to get the gift, but it's a nice incentive to get it done, isn't it?
  3. Yes, I agree. I have a bikini just like that and it works for me every time!
  4. do you have to pay full fare for Crazies?
  5. Dang it! I knew I had something important to do Dec 15!!!! That personal assistant is SO fired! Better go make sure the personal jet, helicopter, and Rolls are gassed up and ready to go! Gotta go get my cabin before JoanandJoe get the primo aft wrap!
  6. Making progress! That ought to hold your hat on!
  7. Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley rocked the house last night! They are two of my faves (right behind Jimmy Buffett) and deserve every award they have earned. I didn't get to watch the whole thing, but I really enjoyed the parts I did see.
  8. That is too sad! But a little funny! You wouldn't believe how many hats DH lost off the back of our ski boat when we had it! Now if you had had a ponytail like I do, that would have acted as an anchor to keep that danged hat on!
  9. I don't know if I would go so far as to make cruises all-inclusive, but I do think they should give cokes and juices free of charge. At least the cokes. How much does it really cost them to do that? C'mon loosen the purse strings a little!
  10. No problem. My head is full of useless knowledge. Glad someone could benefit!
  11. So when you register for the site are you automatically entered for the cruise credit?? It didn't say specifically and after the confirmation email, it took me to another thing to win some "lounge hats." Don't really care for one of those -- NOT a chair hog!
  12. Thanks for the welcome everyone! yes, this addiction is something the entire family benefits from. No one is pushing me into rehab. You won't find me on an episode of Intervention! This looks like a fun site! I hope to be participating a lot here!
